This start of World Championship 2022 is being more than run over. The first day the Fnatic meeting was delayed as the team of the League of Legends European Championship (LEC) he had to go back to his hotel to play. And this second day of the phase of play ins Nor was he going to be without his moment of glory. On this occasion, the affected team was Evil Geniuses and the reason you could not imagine.
While waiting to see the match between the team from the League Championship Series (LCS) Y LOUDthe English commentators gave the reason why the match had been delayed: some crocs. The midlaner of the North American group, Joseph Joon Pyun «jojopyun» was wearing those shoes that, according to the Riot Games regulations, are inappropriate for an official match.

Jojopyun and his shoes are the cause of the delay of a game of Worlds 2022
As revealed by the Riot Games rulebook, players must wear closed shoes. Of course, this excludes any type of sandal or crocs that this time Jojopyun was wearing. It is the referees who decide if the players’ clothing is appropriate. And this time they rejected the shoes of the midlaner by Evil Geniuses. Hence the delay in the start of the match.
However, this rule is not always followed by heart. On occasion we have seen Evil Geniuses players wear these crocs and have never been harmed. After a wait that for some became eternal, finally started a match that would fall at the hands of the LCS boysthus adding his first victory within the phase of play ins. Not without suffering, since the members of LOUD put them on the ropes on more than one occasion.
Evil Geniuses wears an aggregate score of 2-1 in these Worlds 2022 and they will seek to move on to the next phase by all means.
