Boycott the NA LCS
This petition had 63 supporters
Since their debute in the NA LCS, Immortals has been one of the best performing organizations in the league, with multiple top 3 finishes and recently an appearance at the World Championship. It brought us some of the most memorable teams in the LCS featuring star players like Reignover, Huni, Flame, Pobelter and more.
Just now, we learned that Immortals request to participate in the 2018 LCS has been declined. From all the reasons I detaild above, this is truly shocking.
But to add insult to injury it has also been reported the EF request was accepted even though they are the exact opposite of what IMT is. They're a mediocre org which had consistently low standing and almost got relagated. How is this possible?
In a recent article be ESPN, the author Jacob Wolf gave this possible explanation:
"Immortals' declination comes in part as a result of that organization's significant financial commitment to create a live viewing experience for its Los Angeles-based Overwatch League team, one source close to Riot Games told ESPN"
But we also know that two teams who were reported to be in the 2018 LCS, C9 and Optic, both have OWL spots and are going to play in LA starting in December. What is the meaning of this?
If you're outraged as I am by this decision, if you cannot fathom a league without IMT but with EF, please consider supporting this petition to boycott the 2018 NA LCS in hopes of putting some deserved pressure on Riot Games and letting them know that we DO NOT approve of their decision and as a result will not watch this joke of a league.
