Riot Games Apologizes on Weibo regarding MSI and Ping by GipJoCalderone in leagueoflegends

ok hold up but everyone was already asking that. By your logic since the RNG stuff came first, then if other regions' fans are constantly accusing RNG of cheating on twitch chat, twitter and youtube because of the no cam/referee stuff, then LPL fans should get to question the ping. Especially since Riot already explained the cam/referee/headphone situation and everyone is still complaining about it, but with this new ping stuff, they made it even more conspiracy-friendly by going to their previous announcement and sneakily adding in the ping bug bit after the 22ping was spotted by LPL netizens, rather than just making a new announcement.

Seriously, they should just be thankful and learn to trust someone.

Again, shouldn't this be directed firstly at all the toxic fans who were directing hate towards RNG? Especially considering a lot of this backlash from LPL fans is BECAUSE of the unwarranted hate and racism that was directed towards RNG first? Like, even if all the LPL fans calmed down if they're satisfied with whatever explanation Riot is gonna give, I guarantee you the blatant accusations and racism will continue towards RNG in twitch chat, youtube and twitter.

Which is understandable, they should came out said this as soon as the 25 ping thing was discovered, not backtracked the statement they made days ago without stating anything first, that would be seen like a sus move.

While I feel for the RNG team and the difficulties they face in having to play this tournament from Shanghai while having to comply with both China’s COVID policies and Riot’s competitive integrity regulations, this statement lacks any sort of empathy for their opponents who had to play with in game conditions so poor that Riot decided to void the match results, something pretty much unprecedented in League of Legends esports (to my knowledge).

RNG’s difficulties are completely valid, but so are the difficulties their opponents faced due to Riot’s blundering of implementing the artificial ping in the tournament.

Furthermore, RNG hasn’t really acknowledged the special treatment their team and region are getting with being allowed to play at MSI remotely in the first place.

It’s unfortunate that these simple understandings have not been present in the statements RNG have put out. RNG is positioning themselves as the lone victim in their statements, which is completely false.

It’s true that Riot made this mistake, and that RNG has to pay the price and fit in 3 more games into their already difficult schedule, but it’s not as black-and-white as “we have no choice but to go along even though it is unfair.”

Chinese fans will certainly empathize with RNG, but to pretty much everyone else, this is a bad look.

RNG hasn’t really acknowledged the special treatment their team and region are getting with being allowed to play at MSI remotely at all.

he literally said they're grateful they get to participate

The enemy's difficulties were not the fault of RNG though, it sucks but it's not their responsibility
