‘History in the making’: LoL community reacts to LCSPA walkout

The League of Legends community around the world woke up to an unprecedented decision on the morning of May 29.

The North American LCS Players Association (LCSPA) voted to stage a walkout in reaction to Riot Games’ decision to remove the obligation for determined organizations to field a roster North American Challengers League, thus leaving the start of the 2023 LCS Summer Split uncertain. This kind of collective action never happened before in the history of the LCS, but it comes at a time when the friction between Riot and the NALCSPA has reached an all-time high.
