The MSI has to be cancelled, but League of Legends will still be played during the summer break. Riot seems to be betting on an Asian duel.
South Korea and China have chosen their new champions. However, there is no place at the MidSeason Invitational this year, as it has to be cancelled due to the Corona Pandemic.
But there are already plans for a replacement event. Joe Marsh, CEO of LPL Champion T1, has already written to the LCK teams on Twitter and asked if they have time in May.
Riot Korea took the upswing with them and contacted the teams directly – there was probably positive feedback here as well. Invenglobal quoted the Riot officials as saying: “Due to the cancellation of the MSI, the off-season will last about two months. We are planning a temporary event. Not much is certain yet, but details are coming in.”
The European LEC will start again on June 12th, the LCK will not go into the summer split until June 17th.
