hmm even though Worlds this year was really exciting and made it look like "the gap was closing" in the end to me it still felt like IG & KT were just miles ahead of everybody else.
I think the main reason for many Koreans to go to different regions is to experience a different culture and to probably have a less demanding work ethic. (? I don't know if I used that right)
Are they going to a different region because they think they will have a higher chance of winning Worlds? I highly doubt it, but I do believe that they are going to try to get their team to Worlds.
I don't think regions are going to have like a meeting with every team and be like okay which 3 teams are we going to get to Worlds this year. It's probably just that good players are more likely to join a team with good players, or just that the teams with the most money can just afford more good players.
