Doublelift slams the new LCS production as a “clown show”

Doublelift weighting into the fans’ complaints regarding the downfall of LCS production by stating it as a “clown show”.

Due to the ongoing epidemic, the 2020 LCS Summer Split is running online with the return of the Friday Night League. For the Summer Split, Riot introduced a bunch of new things to their broadcast production including a new in-game overlay.

However, ever since Week 1, fans seem to not like the new LCS production at all. A lot of players started to complain about how LCS’s production downgraded so much compare to LEC production.

Fans have been criticizing the new in-game overlay nonstop. In a couple of matches, the new overlay even showed the wrong score, items, or even wrong runes. At one point when the overlay showed CLG vs Golden Guardians as an academy match, popular League of Legends streamer IWillDominate said “Come on guys the teams are bad but they aren’t Academy level…”

And yesterday, superstar AD carry Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng also showed his frustration towards the new LCS production on Twitter.

“it’s actually impressive how it was possible for someone to make every wrong decision and make LCS worse to watch” he said.

He pointed out the constant overlay mistakes, broadcasting the wrong builds and reply. With so many things going wrong, the veteran AD carry feels the current state of the LCS production as a “clown show”.

“Ovilee has 10x better understanding of what’s funny/entertaining than the boomer running LCS which is prob why she’s not on broadcast this split,” he added.

He explained that instead of showing cringe “freestyle” rap and SushiDragon’s ending, Riot should change the ending with some niche content that fans might actually enjoy.

After all these backslashes, Riot did make a statement saying they are currently working hard to make the broadcast better.
