Esports pros from Riot Games and League of Legends are at odds over the fate of the North American league

Well, well, like the record player.

Following Riot Games’ announcement of reducing the North American Challenger’s League League of Legends Esports have dropped to just seven teams from last year’s 16. lol Pro players have put effective attacking tactics to the test.

The LCS Players Association first called out riot For his move in mid-May, he explained the company axed the league “without prior communication or discussion” with the actual players and participants. According to the LCS, the decision affects “up to 70 players, coaches and managers” in North America and conflicts with Riot’s previous commitments to the league. Over the weekend, League members voted “overwhelmingly” to resign and go on strike just before the start of the LCS season to pressure Riot to have “open and transparent discussions” about the future of esports organizations, which the group subsequently denounced with an ad involvement of scab.

Riot apparently met with pro gamer representatives after the strike began, but a letter was also drafted long blog post The postponement of the LCS season by up to two weeks and the suggestion that the cuts are necessary to maintain a “sustainable, economically viable” league has caused a stir as Riot Games is a billion-dollar company owned by the largest games company in the world. In any case, the LCS says negotiations are ongoing.
