Despite complaints regarding delays in the distribution of this information in 2018, ticketing and scheduling information has been released even later this year than before. With League of Legends playing host to an international community, it is worrying for many to see the apparent lack of foresight coming from Riot’s booking team. Many would-be attendees missed the 2018 World Championship due to the delay in information around attendance being made clear, and this could again be the case in 2019.
