Also, AZUBU FROST FTW!
Like I said, I don't care for any team. Not a huge fan of watching other people play video games. Stop assuming that just because someone doesn't care to watch people from another part of the world, with a different language, different culture, and different characteristic make me a TSM fanboy.
As for the end of your post, it seems clear from DoTA, Starcraft 2 and many other online games that Asian teams take competing to a whole new level. Many would argue they are "better" than the NA teams for this. If NA/EU continue to lose on a regular basis to Asian teams, they will stop being popular,stop being watched on streams, stop getting paid to play, stop getting sponsorship deals and one would assume, stop playing. This in turn makes LoL as a competitive e sport less popular in NA/EU. One could go as far to argue that it makes it just another game that only Asians play competitively and therefore joins a long list of games that didn't turn E Sport more mainstream.
