LoL: A team forced to apologize for leaking scrims

LoL: A team forced to apologize for leaking scrims

Competition in League of Legends is also a race for innovation and information warfare. The structures try to find new strategies and to prepare as well as possible before the matches. However, a team leaked data... they had to apologize as a result!

League of Legends fans diligently watch two types of games about their favorite players: official matches that take place on stage and soloQ matches streamed by players during stream sessions. There is, however, another aspect that goes completely under the radar of the community... training and scrim games! Scrims refer to "friendly matches" planned between two teams to prepare, work on certain aspects of their game and why not test new strategies.

By nature, the scrims are kept secret and no one can have access to them, except the teams concerned. But in South Korea, a player made a little mistake... He leaked information on his personal stream and his team was forced to apologize !

The culprit is Ruler

The culprit is far from an unknown given that it is Ruler , the ADC of Gen.G. World champion with Samsung Galaxy (2017), he demonstrated that mistakes happen even to the best! During a personal stream session, he let the results of a scrim against DWG KIA appear on the screen. There is obviously no death of man and for some, it was only a small detail. But we could still see the champions played by the opponents (Canyon was training on the new character Bel'Veth), while seeing their statistics. A team could therefore use this information to potentially counter DWG's plans while evaluating the various dangers. Besides for the record, Canyon has indeed played Bel'Veth in his last match, lost against DRX.

Gen.G quickly took the floor to apologize to DWG KIA. The team promised that this kind of mishap would not happen again in the future. This opportunity will serve as an apprenticeship to educate technical staff as players. So there is more fear than harm and we could not really question the clumsiness of the Korean ADC. It's not like he leaked information on purpose to harm his sparring partners.

It's not the first time and it certainly won't be the last.

Scrims are often a very sensitive subject. At the beginning of the year, there was a controversy in the ERL concerning an analysis tool possessed by the academic LEC teams but inaccessible to others. This would make it possible to make elaborate statistics from data collected during the training games.

In 2016, we also had the right to an entire leaked part from TSM , with the bonus of player audio. This leak had caused a lot of talk, because it took place during Worlds and it was against SKT . For once, the North American team had done rather well. The endgame hadn't leaked, but it was neck and neck in the 35th minute. Unfortunately, on stage the results were much less convincing with an elimination from the group stages.

Minecraft pays homage to Technoblade and releases pre-release 3

Since the Wild Update on June 7, Minecraft has taken advantage of several pre-releases to refine certain aspects, with mainly the in-game chat lately. Nevertheless, this week is a bit special since the developers have decided to pay tribute to Technoblade.
