    Team, Player, & Organization News


    Europe:



      NA:


      • Riot has released a player spotlight video on Gamsu, Team Dignitas' top laner (and chef!)

      Riot:


      • Riot has issued a competitive ruling on Chris Badawi, the current part-owner of NA LCS team TDK and of the NACS team Renegades
      • Here's the TL;DR of the situation & consequences:
        "Chris Badawi, current part-owner of LCS team Team Dragon Knights (TDK) and CS team Renegades (RNG), solicited a player under contract with Team Liquid to join his team. After doing so he was notified by Team Liquid’s owner and LCS officials that soliciting LCS players under contract was a violation of league tampering rules and could disqualify him for consideration as an owner, coach, or player. Despite the warning, he again tampered with another Team Liquid player shortly thereafter. Due to this pattern of willful tampering, we are declining to certify Chris Badawi as an eligible LCS owner and issuing a one-year ban on him holding any officially recognized LCS team position (i.e. owner, coach, manager). In order for TDK and RNG to be eligible to play in the LCS next season, Chris will have to divest his ownership stake in both teams."
      • Following the competitive ruling, several relevant parties responded to the situation:
