Suspended since March 2, the LCK could make its return with a 100% online format, like the LPL which resumed last Monday.
For the past two weeks, nothing has filtered through from the league officials regarding a potential return to the league. Yesterday, we learned via invenglobal that Riot Korea would consider all possibilities regarding the resumption of the championship.
"Although resuming LCK was not decided, we are checking out every possibility including online matches with considering how many matches left and how many days we might have."
Following suspicions of a member of the LEC staff being exposed to the COVID-19 virus, Riot Games have taken the decision to suspend the league until further notice as a precaution.
Spring Split of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) resumed via an online format last Monday for the second week of competition. Matches are taking place at a faster pace with three Bo3s per day to make up for the days lost due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Players compete against each other from their team offices and each team has a referee on-site to help with any technical problems.
As the deferral period for the KLA has been extended, the method adopted for the LPL appears to be the most viable option for a potential resumption of the championship. No resumption date has yet been communicated.
