2020 LEC Spring Split is returning on March 20, 2020, and all the matches are to be played online.
Regarding the situation, LEC stated that “Due to the ongoing developments of the coronavirus pandemic we have decided to play the remainder of the 2020 LEC Spring Split 100% remotely online, with matches resuming Friday, March 20th.”
Matches will be resuming and played online from Friday and will be played throughout the weekends. And the 2020 LEC Spring Split Finals will take place on April 18th and 19th.
LPL is the first tournament that is being played online and now LEC is planning to go online as well. Hosting a large tournament like LEC is not an easy task to do. And regarding that Riot Games stated that,
One of the main challenges of online play is how to preserve competitive integrity. To help with this, all teams will be competing from their facilities in Berlin, with the exception of Origen who will play from their training center in Copenhagen. Latency to our LEC tournament servers will be reasonably low and roughly equal between teams, offering a level playing field for the League.
In order to ensure fairness of the tournament Riot games will be implementing additional cameras to monitor the rooms the players will compete in, fully monitoring voice communications, screen recording, and remote control ability. Unlike LPL there will be no referees due to health risks.
Online or not this is still great news for LEC fans around the globe to enjoy their beloved tournament once again.
