· In the middle of May, Riot Games announced the requirement to the decreasing the number of participating teams at the Challengers League (NACL). The LCSPA states that the organization urged players, coaches, streamers, and fans to stand up in unison and demand that Riot reverse this decision to protect the future of the LCS. This decision influenced almost 70 jobs over the night.

· The ten LCS teams left the league: Cloud9, Immortals, TSM, Dignitas, Golden Guardians, NRG, and 100 Thieves all, while Team Liquid, FlyQuest, and Evil Geniuses remained for now.

· The LCSPA (League of Legends Championship Series Player Association) revealed the statement with the lists of requirements, and the LCSPA will ask LCS players to vote on a walkout.

· But Riot Games has announced the new format for the NACL for the Summer Split, with ten teams, down from 16, and a $100,000 prize pool. The LCSPA has a meeting with Riot later on Tuesday, Executive Director Phillip Aram told the Sports Business Journal.
