A controversial decision that has aroused the anger of fans around the world and puts on suspicion a region on which there were already many doubts in the past.

A scandal for League of Legends competitive

In addition to carrying out an unfortunate sanctioning process with a notification of the sanction at 00:12 (local time) of the party day, the reasons for the sanction were not justified or respond to the classic “beyond any reasonable doubt.” As local media reports thanks to the emails leaked by the owner of the victim, the formal accusation to the team was that several players had shared accounts and referred to the following reasons.

DNS Cry (MID) used Tristana and Twisted Fate in the middle during the tournament after not having chosen them in the last three months according to the account registration.
DNS 111 (TOP), DNS Cry (MID), DNS NAH (ADC) and DNS ROM1 (Support) They did not verify their accounts

The decision of the organizer of the tournament was so strange that The rest of the teams that followed in the competition even raised the possibility of abandoning in case it did not rectify. However, the possibility did not intimidate those responsible for the League of Legends tournaments in Southeast Asia and Vietnam, who decided to move forward among the accusations of systematically favoring Genius Esports, a team that benefited from the decision. Although by sports merit they should have been eliminated in groups, they reached the final and will fight to be in the next summer VCS.

Riot Games reached an agreement with Garena so that this telecommunications giant would carry out the distribution and management of League of Legends in Southeast Asia and lost control of her game in this area of the world. The treatment was beneficial for developers when the title had just launched, but is an open secret that the company could not regret it anymore . In addition to this scandal, Garena has been accused of abusing her domain position by introducing predatory monetization techniques and acting against the community.
