LCS: A majority of players wanted the cancellation of the Spring Split

Travis Gafford, well-known journalist from the League of Legends scene, revealed via his YouTube channel that 2/3 of the LCS pros players had voted for an outright cancellation of Spring Split following a vote led by The Players Association.

LCS: A majority of players wanted the cancellation of the Spring Split

A few days before the resumption of the split, Riot Games asked The Players Association (association which brings together the players of the main and academic teams) to conduct a vote within the different teams to know if the players wanted to continue the spring segment online or simply cancel it.

While the League of Legends Championship Series resumed online last weekend for the eighth week of the regular season, we learned today by Travis Gafford, that the majority of players wasn't favorable to a resumption of the championship and that 2/3 of them simply wanted the Spring Split to be canceled.

There are several obvious reasons for this choice. The Spring Split, with its new format, no longer has any impact in the qualification race for the World Championship, which can largely explain the players' overall lack of interest. In addition, if the spring segment continues, the break with the summer segment will be short-lived (the calendar having been reorganized following the breaks in the different leagues), giving players little time to rest — barely a month.

On the international competition side, the MSI is currently on stand-by — and, in view of the evolution of this unprecedented health crisis, the holding of such an event seems more than compromised. It's probably hard for some players to see any interest, especially for those whose teams are guaranteed not to access the Playoffs. Then comes the obvious health reasons and the remoteness of some players but also staff members who would like to return to their country with their families.

The ninth and final week of the LCS regular season is set to begin this Saturday, March 28.

Doublelift hit the 1500 kill mark

Last night, despite a defeat, the ADC of Team Liquid passed the bar of 1500 kills on the competitive circuit. Doublelift is the first LCS player to reach this symbolic number followed by Wildturtle (1478 eliminations) and Bjergsen (1339 eliminations).
