For the first time in the playoffs of the LoL World Championship was a team Edward Gaming
Worlds 2021 LoL has been taking place in Reykjavik since October 5. For the first time in the history of these competitions in this discipline team Edward Gaming reached the finals. In the semifinals, its members managed to beat their opponents from Gen.G with a score of 3:2.
November 6 will be a playoff championship. During it, the Chinese club will face DWG KIA, who defeated T1 2:3 the day before.
Gen.G took 3rd and 4th place and left the tournament with a reward of $178,000. Now the participants of the championship, as well as hundreds of thousands of fans, are looking forward to the denouement, because it's one of the biggest events in the world of e-sports.

Disabling general chat in patch 11.21 is another attempt to combat "toxic" players
The developer of the game League of Legends began to pay more attention not only to the organization of tournaments and updates, but also to combat the toxicity of players. This is due to the fact that recently the number of insults between players in chat rooms has increased. As an attempt made by Riot Games was a statement about the blocking of general chat. At the same patch 11.21 was not disabled in the team chats, because they are strategically important for the game.
One of the first changes felt the gamers from Russia. Despite the fact that the domestic server has undergone changes, the set of tools has remained the same. Perhaps, after the completion of cycle 11.21, analysts will change their decision, if there is a positive trend in chats.
