InSec calls Chinese player stupid cunt, Chinese League of Legends media blows up

InSec calls Chinese player stupid cunt, Chinese League of Legends media blows up

| June 27, 2014

InSec has once again become the focus in Chinese League of Legends media, but this time the “#1 Lee Sin in Korea” is not being praised for his spectacular plays. Instead, he’s the target of criticism for cursing at Chinese players in-game.

insec sb

For those who don’t know, “sb” the go-to curse word amongst the Chinese. It’s short for “sha bi” which basically means “stupid cunt”. The picture above is from the post-chat screen where after losing a ranked match, InSec chose to openly curse out his opponent(s)/teammate(s)/all Chinese in general.

After further investigation however, there’s a bit more to the story. Apparently, one of his opponents first said “sb Korean” in-game, to which of course the logical response is “sb Chinese”. So case solved and yes, context always matters.

But it’s not the first time InSec chose to publicly display bit of unprofessionalism, as pointed out by websites like 163 and yxdown:

Now they’re asking readers if such behavior is befitting for a professional player. Since being posted yesterday, there are already over 900 comments on the thread, with Chinese opinion largely being split, with people holding that either:

1) As a professional player, InSec has no control. Playing on a Chinese team, on the Chinese servers, and still cursing out Chinese players? He’s simply asking for it.

2) Professional players are people too. They also get angry. Maybe it’s because his teammates from that match really sucked? Can you guarantee that Chinese players don’t do the same when they go to the Korean or US servers?

Here are a few of the top comments:

Those who play LOL are all like this.

If you play on the US servers, you’ll know that Koreans all like to trash talk.

Isn’t this normal? It’s not like we don’t trash talk the Koreans.

So this is what the Koreans are bringing to China.

A disgrace to Chinese eSports.

InSec is too impulsive. He should be cursing at the player, not the Chinese in general.

In any case, one thing is for sure: InSec has shown some amazing plays in the past two weeks with Star Horn Royal Club. Barring a few miscommunication issues, he’s definitely become an essential part of the team and it’s highly unlikely that the club’s management (or Tencent) will choose to take any action. Although if Chinese media continue to make a big fuss of it, we’ll have to see!

Star Horn Royal Club takes on WE Academy this Saturday at 4PM (China time) in the LPL Summer split. Check out all the action live and in English on our Twitch stream!

InSec to Star Horn may be one of the biggest transfers of the League of Legends offseason, but how is the Korean jungler adjusting to his new home and team?

    Most MOBA games a filled with childish folks who think that swearing at others will make them a better man. Unfortunately the real world doesn’t work that way. Pretty much turning themselves into sad individuals. Its no wonder this generation of gamers all lack internet etiquette or even respect for others.

    Nicholas – in Chinese (he wrote “sb”)

  • Eos

    This is not Insec….OMFG…Chinese LOL players love to fake any famous player’s name…

  • Andy

    i say that all the time
    is this another way of saying a professional player is more of a person than the rest of us? he is more worth that we are?
    he can say that as much as we can
    as long as it is not public,like the OGN,LCS or whatever.

    if that person is soooooo Butthurt from that “offense” ,then he should -delete his internet- and just go play with a ball or whatever.

    If you are trying to make the internet into some sort of a lubby dubby soap opera then please SHOOT ME NOW!
