A game of League of Legends can be likened to a meal, where players are the ingredients, and the game itself serves as the recipe. The outcome can range from a delectable, well-seasoned steak to a less satisfying, TikTok-inspired dish.
Korean esports player Gumayusi shares an analogy, comparing League of Legends roles to ingredients in a gamer’s favorite snack, highlighting the pivotal role ADCs play in the MOBA game.
T1 Gumayusi compares the ADC role to this beloved noodle topping
Gumayusi’s analogy compares the ADC role in League of Legends to an egg in instant noodles. He asserts that while an egg isn’t strictly necessary, it significantly enhances the experience.
He elaborates that when the essential components like water, noodles, and soup base are well-prepared, the egg (representing the ADC) becomes crucial for a great outcome. Without these foundational elements, the ADC’s impact becomes negligible.
He extends this analogy to other roles: top and jungler are akin to the noodles, while the support is likened to the packet of dehydrated vegetables.
Gumayusi started his career as a professional AD carry in 2018 with the KeG Championship, an event organized by KeSPA, and has since then established himself as a rising bot laner.
He was later recruited by SK Telecom T1 (now T1) as a trainee, becoming a substitute player for a brief period in 2019. Finally, in 2021, he made his debut in the LCK with T1.
