Not more than 2 months after Riot Games had actually liquified the (OPL), it has been revealed the Oceanic League Of Legends will return in 2021. Back in October, the company announced they had closed their workplaces in Sydney and dissolved the OPL after stating” the OPL has actually not fulfilled our goals for the league, and we do not think that the marketplace is currently able to support the league in its existing kind.” This was probably a hard choice for the company to make as COVID-19 hindered expansion in the market. Now it appears the ESL and Guinevere Capital will push forward with a brand-new league created in cooperation with the 8 existing organizations in the Oceania region. Riot Games will be offering a three-year license to ESL and Guinevere Capital to run the competitors with an extension choice for a further 3 years. This is good news for Australia and New Zealand, who generally had groups with nowhere to go and no one else to play, and no space in the APAC areas. What the new league will be called is anyone’s guess, but don’t expect the old OPL to return. Here’s a few quotes from the announcement.
