2 LPL teams apparently provide fines to players for inappropriate remarks on stream|Dot Esports
LPL teams Invictus Video gaming and Vici Video gaming penalized their support and jungler, respectively, today for unsuitable remarks made during recent livestreams.
The League of Legends groups provided declarations on Weibo earlier today detailing the punishments.
IG said in its Weibo post that support Su “Southwind” Zhilin used “uncivilized language expressions and inappropriate remarks” during his livestream on July 11 that “caused negative effects.” He was fined 50,000 yuan (roughly $7,147), according to Korizon Esports translator Kevin Kim.
Vici stated in its Weibo post that jungler Lu “Leyan” Rong utilized “unsuitable expressions and expressions of uncivilized language” during a recent livestream. The team likewise said, “As an expert gamer and public figure, Leyan should lead by example.” He was fined a month’s salary, according to Kevin Kim.
Fines are nothing brand-new to gamers in China’s LPL, however. A month back, eStar’s jungler forgot to take Smite and was fined a month’s income after the group could not remake the video game and lost the series.
IG and Vici are both battling for playoff spots in the 2020 LPL Summer season Split, sitting at 7-3 and 5-3, respectively. You can tune in to the LPL broadcast tomorrow to see Vici vs. JD Video gaming at 8am CT
