LAN Version of League of Legends Comes to Tournaments

By   /   Oct 13, 2012


A friend of mine recently declared on his Facebook wall that he was only going to play games offline from then on. When I asked why, he responded simply and solemnly, “the lag.” He was the eSports type, and these guys are serious about their games, just like competitors of League of Legends, which Riot surprised nicely with the announcement of a LAN mode for the tournament version of the game.

While the recent network outages surely had something to do with this decision, it can’t be left unsaid that several people have insisted on an offline mode for sometime. The lag and potential outages associated with online gaming can make for an iffy tournament, and no one wants to feel cheated out of a win or as if they didn’t deserve their win.

We can only hope more developers, such as Blizzard, take up this practice of lag-proofing its games.
