League of Legends is a very popular Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game. It is so popular that developer Riot Games is holding a tournament with a $2 million cash pool. The quarterfinals had been going swimmingly, when the players started experiencing network issues. It eventually became so bad that the matches were postponed to later this week. This was done to ensure that everything can be moved to a secure location to ensure more stability with their network.
Riot Games posted an official statement:
After a series of connectivity issues at our LA Live venue, we've had to reschedule the final games of the Season 2 World Playoffs. We'll be completing the last game of the CLG EU and Team WE quarterfinal match and finishing out the Semifinal Matches in the near future from a new location with a secure Internet connection. The matches will be broadcast live, so stay tuned for scheduling information.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and want to thank all of you for your patience. It wasn't our intention to disrupt your viewing schedules, but the situation is unavoidable, and -- in the interest of doing what's best for your favorite teams -- we want to ensure we're not subjecting them to frequent disconnects.
Thanks for sticking with us, summoners. We hope to see you all online for the Semifinal matches. Stay tuned for more information.
