It is highly likely that in the near future LoL will have another community tournament in China called “League of the Unemployed”.
In the last season, Doinb created a community tournament called LBL with the participation of many famous Chinese players and streamers. But a month ago, the LPL players were “banned” by Tencent from participating in the LBL, so the tournament was also suspended indefinitely.
According to many fans, Tencent’s ban is due to fear that the LBL will compete for views with the LPL, and at the same time make it more difficult for the region to manage players, create results betting sites, etc.
As a result, Doinb recently had very interesting shares on the livestream about a new tournament. The “LPL clown” said that he will create a new community tournament with “unemployed” players (no longer playing for the LPL), this way, even if Tencent wants to, it will not be able to ban it like this. LBL.
Doinb also revealed that he will use part of his donation as a prize for the “League of the Unemployed” tournament (named by the fans). However, he was also quick to add that “money comes later” as he now has to take care of his wife and raise children.
After hearing about this “unemployment” tournament, many Chinese gamers agree with Doinb, because this player is quite “free” because he is not playing in the LPL in the upcoming season. Not only that, the image of Chinese League of Legends players is not as professional as other regions, so Doinb’s “unemployment” tournament promises to bring many former players a lot of followers. From there can get more livestream contracts, ads or followers.
