League of Legends

We recently reported that League of Legends developer banned G2A from sponsoring teams including Counter Logic Gaming, Cloud-9, and H2K and also removed keyseller logo from the merchandise at the Worlds 2015.

Following this, G2A issued its response in a press release saying that behavior exhibited by League of Legends developer is heavy handed and potentially damaging towards the entire eSports community.

G2A writes that Riot Games launched an aggressive attack towards the entire eSports community and is a failed attempt at controlling the entire industry:

[League of Legends developer have] launched an aggressive attack directed towards the entire global e-sports community in a failed attempt to dominate and control the industry. [Riot Games e-mail] has the ability to impact negatively on e-sports, especially during this fabulous time when hopes are so high for great e-sports events.

G2A continued that the company tried multiple friendly ways to come to a resolution, but all their efforts were met with ‘more and more demands’.

The company also stated that it invested around $6 million in sponsoring eSports events and asked fans to comment on Riot’s decision across the social media.

This is Riot’s final word [for Worlds 2015] and it is so unfair for the e-sport community worldwide.
