◎ MSI China Team Pushing Controversy
-The controversy over whether RNG has given RNG, which could not come to Busan for MSI for the Shanghai blockade policy. Before the tournament, Riot Games announced that it fixed all teams’ reaction speeds to 35ms for RNG. Since then, the fans are noticed by the fact that RNG does not wear a headset during the game, no referees in the RNG practice room, and the faces of players during the game are not revealed, and negative public opinion accelerated.
Riot Games wanted to calm public opinion with the guidance of Naz Alettaha LOL e -Sports Global General Manager. The main contents are this. There is no number of people who can enter the RNG facility due to the blockade of Shanghai, and the delivery of goods is also impossible. However, he did what he could do as much as possible, such as referees and headsets, and added that he would continue to monitor continuously to maintain competitive integrity.
However, negative public opinion was even more rapid as the announcement that the RNG practice room and Busan site did not match. This caused not only fans but also RNG complaints. According to RNG, even though the guidelines of Riot Games were faithfully fulfilled, they were dissatisfied with the decision to re -exam. In many ways, the MSI is unlikely to be free from negative public opinion.
