LoL: LCS to be played without fan meets and post-games handshakes

LoL: LCS to be played without fan meets and post-games handshakes

Riot Games are taking these measures as a precaution to prevent as much as possible the spread of the coronavirus.

LoL: LCS to be played without fan meets and post-games handshakes

Once again, the Covid-19 is affecting the League of Legends esports scene. After having decided to move the LEC 2020 Spring Split Playoffs from Budapest to the LEC Studio, Riot Games also chose to take some measures to surround the LCS. Until further notice, fan meets, victory high-fives and post-games handshakes are suspended. Riot Games are offering a refund for people that might be disappointed by these precautions.

It remains to be seen if the LCS Playoffs will be affected or not. While we hardly imagine that they could be relocated anywhere, the eventuality of making them happen without a live crowd is sadly a real possibility.

In any case, the LCS returns this afternoon with Cloud9 vs Team SoloMid!

Cloud9 proved they were the best LCS team, defeating FlyQuest in a clean sweep. It also meant they ended Playoffs with just two losses on their record.
