Omg, I’m so glad that League’s esports have resumed! Finally, something to watch during quarantime Watching the LPL semis right now – IG vs TES (and TES is punishing IG rn )
Ahahahahahaha – best line of the day:
IG’s Leyan on Qiyana whiffs with her ult (Supreme Display of Talent) by hitting a turret base instead of a wall, stunning literally no one during a teamfight …
Caster: “That was a supreme display of disappointment from Leyan!”
ICYMI, MSI is cancelled for 2020:
Tl;dr: the Riot esports team is now focusing solely on Worlds, especially the finals in Shanghai.
Also, they’ve announced some changes to the regions receiving slots for Worlds (due to the absence of MSI this year and the merger of two regional leagues):
The 2020 World Championship will see the following regional seed distribution:
- LPL (China), LEC (Europe): 4 Teams each
- LCK (Korea), LCS (North America): 3 Teams each
- PCS (Southeast Asia), VCS (Vietnam): 2 Teams each
- CBLOL (Brazil), TCL (Turkey), LJL (Japan), LLA (Latin America), OPL (Oceania), LCL (Commonwealth of Independent States) : 1 Team each
EDIT: >20K viewers for the English language stream, and the match hasn’t even started yet!
Some technical issues with the stream out of China this AM, so they’ve apparently decided to broadcast in 8 bit pixel art for now
So I’ve been watching VODs from the regular season this week (trying to complete the “watch LOL esports” missions) – some really great games in the spring split! But wtf is wrong with Team Liquid???
