Tbh though, it doesn't really surprise me; League has never really been a competitive game in the way it's designed or developed. Long-term, I expect it's competitors to be more sustainable in the esports industry. Only shot League has overall is to adopt a rolling format, like trading card games adopted a long time ago.
If it insists on this silly exclusion policy, they're basically pitting themselves against the entire rest of the esports industry. No way they're gonna outcompete for long when new competitors basically have to choose between being a "professional gamer" or a "professional Lol gamer"..
The thing is, yes, Riot is in a unique situation in that it has a for more direct hand in its esport scene compared to other game companies and legally has every right to put whatever it wants in its contracts, but this is made necessary expressly because it's premise needs to be closely maintained by the devs in order to sustain it as an esport. It's just one more reason proving that League of Legends is designed with an inherently flawed premise in the context of esports.
I apologize in advance for being boring, I'm not really a talker, so I'm trying my best to think out loud. I'll try and give my thoughts after the video ends too.
