Riot didn’t try to negotiate with Dash at all before cutting his role

The League of Legends esports community was shocked by yesterday’s revelation of James “Dash” Patterson leaving the LCS broadcast this year. Following the news, the desk host shared some details behind the decision.

On Dash’s stream, which began shortly after the news was released, he admitted that it wasn’t his decision, but Riot Games, which came to the conclusion that they don’t need a desk host in 2023. He also revealed that the team behind the LCS didn’t even speak to him or negotiate before the cut, but simply told him he will no longer be needed in 2023.
