15.8.2021 | Riot moves their in-person 'League of Legends' championship due to resurgence of COVID-19
According to the Verge, Riot Games has moved the last two matches of League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) from Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center to the LCS Arena in Los Angeles.
The spread of the new coronavirus’ Delta variant has made it impractical to hold the large in-person event “in good conscience” even with vaccines in use, the LCS Arena is a “safer” location that will protect the health of Worlds representatives before they go to China, Riot said.
The developer promised events at Prudential Center in the future, and said it would offer full refunds. More details would be coming soon, Riot added.
