Up to now, if you ignore the exciting matches and unexpected results that took place at the World Finals (World Championship) 2022, it cannot be said that Riot Games has organized the tournament too well. First, there is the problem of the playing machine. Right on the opening day of the Play-In Round, both the audience and the players had to wait a long time for the matches to start. For the Asian audience, the time zone difference has made them even more tired when the matches were delayed for too long.
In addition, recently, some players have complained about the lighting system at the stage of Worlds 2022. According to Jaxon, some players have admitted in the interview that the lighting system here is working. excessive glare.
Kiaya – GAM Esports (GAM) Top laner admitted: “During GAM’s past matches, there were some minor issues affecting us, which is the light. The light hit our eyes directly. . That really created some obstacles and we were a bit annoyed by that.”
Not only Kiaya, Gen.G Esports Support Lehends also shared the same complaint about the lighting: “The lighting on the stage is really bright. Even in the game, sometimes I can’t see the screen. mine”.
This is not the first time Riot has faced complaints about lighting problems at tournaments it organizes. Remember in 2021, Perkz – then still wearing Cloud9, also said that excessive light affected his health. Perkz had to deal with it himself by wearing a hat during the competition.
These problems, similar to the games being postponed or the errors appearing in the matches, are not really that big. However, their effect on the players can completely be more serious if continued for a long time. Riot needs to take action soon to solve it if it doesn’t want to be condemned by the community for the issue of unprofessional tournament organization.
