LS explains why the LCS is healthier than its ever been

Even although Riot Games is making an attempt to revive the LCS with new concepts, the area nonetheless will get slammed for nearly each hiccup by League of Legends followers. To tackle this problem, LS joined Travis Gafford’s podcast on Feb. 13 and talked about how he feels the area is having its finest yr but.

As a critic and ‘negative LCS persona’ labeled by League followers, LS thinks the area is approach higher than it’s ever been this yr. From the stage to the brand new segments, LS praised Riot’s initiatives to make the North American league extra immersive and engaging to observe.

“I think the stage looks really nice. It helps get immersive in watching,” LS mentioned. “The segments that they did, like I was a really big fan of the QTCinderella segment.” 

According to him, integrating gamers with full segments on them throughout breaks is one thing Riot and LCS have by no means completed earlier than. “I think the direction of going that route in a lot of ways is good. Full-blown segments on the actual players are all really good,” he mentioned.

As a co-streamer, LS feels these steps are like an uptick which makes the printed extra noticeable and a reduction to observe. Due to those participating segments, there was much more engagement amongst viewers even throughout breaks.  

The competitors this yr can be participating to observe. With no assured top-four groups on the LCS leaderboard (besides perhaps FlyQuest), LS thinks LCS has an excellent stream proper now. 

“There are enough fun storylines even with like some of the bottom teams that have like big names,” he mentioned. “Like Dignitas completely floundering about, Team Liquid trying to figure out what’s going on, and everything going on with CLG, I mean LCS is interesting in that regard.”

As a consequence, LS feels horrible seeing the pointless LCS drama unfolding on social media platforms over the previous few weeks. “I feel like analytically [it] doesn’t actually translate into anything. It’s just like people have to take mental blows and it’s almost for naught. It just feels really brutal,” LS mentioned.

LS was pointing to the TSM and Doublelift phase through the Feb. 4 broadcast which gained huge backlash from the League neighborhood. Fans felt the way in which LeTigress dealt with the subject was far too nonchalant because it concerned the alleged abuse of TSM gamers and workers members. But LS felt it was odd everybody tried to go after just one particular person, whereas Riot saved its silence on the phase earlier than addressing it far too late.

The 2023 LCS Spring Split returns tomorrow, Feb. 15, with Evil Geniuses dealing with off in opposition to 100 Thieves at 4pm CT.
