Ahead of the League of Legends offseason in November, MAD Lions has alleged tampering by G2 Esports and pushed for a vote in recent owners’ meetings asking Riot Games’ LEC office to lobby Riot’s global esports department to revise the global tampering and poaching rules, sources who participated in said meetings told Dot Esports.
Those meetings occurred on Sept. 2 and 3 and the vote passed 8-2, with G2 Esports voting “no,” according to sources. Vitality also voted “no,” arguing the current ruleset is not being properly enforced and amendments or changes to those rules should only come after proper enforcement of the existing poaching and tampering rules, sources said. MAD Lions and Vitality declined to comment. G2 Esports did not respond to a request for comment.
