Contrary to the community’s reaction, Fnatic’s coach said that Riot will “ignore” the bug in the GAM – TES match.
In the past few days, the League of Legends community has been extremely excited when “Holy Bug” Vandiril announced a serious error that appeared in the GAM Esports – TOP Esports match. Unlike the bug that happened in the previous GAM Esports – Rogue match, this time the bug was more serious when Vandiril thought that this was one of the reasons why TES failed.
Accordingly, JackeyLove’s Mace of Thorns Malmortius did not provide magic resistance as specified, causing Lucian’s health to decrease even more after being hit by Karthus’s Soul Orb in Levi’s hand. The international community argued fiercely while many LPL fans announced that they would boycott Worlds 2023 if Riot did not speak up about this bug.
However, according to Fnatic coach YamatoCannon, Riot will not take action regarding the bug this time: “Riot will not say anything about the bug because there is an implicit rule. Specifically, if the player does not detect the bug and report it, the bug is considered non-existent. I remember games where I saw bugs from behind the scenes and I couldn’t even ask to stop the game or use the chronobreak rule.”
It is true that until now, Vandiril’s post about the bug in the GAM – TES match has been getting more and more interactions, but Riot’s side is still silent. If what the FNC coach said is true, then perhaps this time, Riot will lose a lot of points in the eyes of the community, especially when this error is said to have indirectly caused a team to return home only after the Group Stage of the tournament. Worlds 2022.
