Koreans aren't good because they have any natural skill, they just have an odd drive to put in more hours than any other nationality in competitive games. Again, this doesn't necessarily correlate with skill, so in LoL you get paired up with players with 2000 games' experience that make stupid mistakes because they can't judge to commit/avoid fights quickly, assessing the outcome with any reliability.

This gets summarized by frustrated high-level players as "koreans are bad" because in those situations they CAN be bad.


Ah yes. Playing during morning in Europe is an agony, as it's afternoon/evening in Korea.

1700+ games won and idiots go smiteless junglers, feed 0/10 as Vladimir rushing warmogs and never speak English.

The Korean thing goes back to Starcraft I. I'll bet HotShotGG--or "HSGG" as we call him--played Terran. A decade ago, Koreans were known and despised for simultaneously being excellent/terrible.

"Oh I lost. Must be because I had a Korean."

"Oh, I lost. Must be because they had a Korean."

Mostly it was just frustration at seeing gobbledeguk on your screen, at a time when international language barriers were a new thing on The Electric Internets.

It has to do with a stereotype regarding MMOs. It's said that most Korean MMOs are all mindless grind and no skill.


I agree with this completely
