Following the Chinese LPL being indefinitely suspended in light of the coronavirus outbreak, the Korean League of Legends competitive scene could now suffer indirectly.

Members of the official English LPL broadcast team announced their safe departure from China, and that they were going to be checked by medical teams.

As relayed by officials on Twitter, the LCK start date is currently unchanged, but the event will not benefit from any live audience.

The decision taken to protect fans, staff and players has so far no communicated duration. Booking of tickets for the coming weeks has been postponed for the moment.
