The League of Legends community is agitated by the news that Riot Games has directly removed the names of two AS Esports and Genius Esports teams from VCS Spring 2023.
Recently, the Vietnamese League of Legends community is talking about the names that will participate in the VCS Spring 2023 tournament. Notable among them are ASE (AS Esports) and GE (Genius Esports) respectively. The top 7-8 last season was said to have been directly eliminated by Riot Games from the VCS tournament, not being allowed to participate in the Promotion Round.
Looking back at the past of ASE and GE, it is known that both teams have been repeatedly called out in dramas that owe their salaries and deceive their own players. In which ASE at the end of the VCS Summer 2022 Group Stage, this team has been entangled in rumors that they owe the salaries of players and coaches for many months. In addition, ASE leaders were also suspected of cheating on players, because they did not increase the salaries of ASE players when they were promoted from VCSB to VCS.
Even when there was a rumor, ASE did not make any move to correct it, the players of this team also went on social networks to “hide” about being “repressed” like Easylove.
That’s why VCS fans believe that it’s true that ASE owes salaries and broke promises to players. Not long after that, the team’s fanpage suddenly changed color for unknown reasons. This is also the time when the community speculated that this player had dissolved, and quietly offered to sell his place at VCS.
And GE is not better when this team since its appearance in the Vietnamese LoL village has been associated with the drama “plowing for hire”. Not only that, at the VCSB Summer 2022, GE was also involved in a series of noises related to the special right to attend the VCSB Summer 2022 Playoffs instead of DNS Gaming.
Besides, GE was also involved in the “night walk” question with the VCSB referee and many other serious problems. The culmination of the drama is the “crossing the bridge” with the dismissal of LL player as soon as this team has tickets to VCS Summer 2022.
During the time playing at VCS, this team was also suspected of selling due to extremely unusual performances. Team GE is also plagued with player salary debt no less than ASE. That’s why fans speculate that because of the past, Riot Games has directly eliminated 2 teams from VCS Spring 2023. However, this is just a rumor, reality still has to wait for an official announcement from Riot Games side.
