LLA 2023: Leviathan will replace The Kings after their expulsion from the Latin American LoL league
In April 2023, the LLA announced that the Mexican team The Kings had been indefinitely banned from the Latin American league. League of Legendsnow we learn that Leviathan will take its place in the tournaments of Lol. We are going to know the details of this process and what will happen with the promo/relegation of 2023.
Why were The Kings expelled from the Latin American League (LLA) of League of Legends?
At the beginning of March, The Kings were in seventh position in the league, but it did not take long for strong rumors to emerge that the team was in a very bad financial situation and that it was not going to be able to stay on its feet for long. The situation got very heated when Jerry, CEO of Estral Esports, commented on a Twitch stream that The Kings had not yet paid him for the purchase of the Lyg player.
Due to this, Riot Games and the Latin American league began an investigation of the situation, but everything indicated that The Kings was already out.
In the LLA’s official statement, published on April 20, they said that “The Kings have not complied with the agreements signed within their Team Participation Contract and the Official Rules, making their participation untenable for the Closing stage. ». Although they did not specify which specific agreements they were referring to, they cited point 12 of the Official Regulation of the LLA. This one is quite ambiguous and simply says that they can make a decision “in the interest of the league.”
Out The Kings, Enter Leviathan
According to the statement, the place that remained after the expulsion of the team The Kings has been awarded to the Argentine esports organization Leviatán.
Leviatán will be part of the closing tournament of the LLA 2023.
What will happen to the 2023 Promo/Relegation tournament?
Riot Games and the Latin American League of League of Legends (LoL) or LLA announced that the 2023 Promo/Relegation tournament event has been suspended.
