5 Rules You DIDN'T KNOW Existed In League of Legends Esports

Check out ProGuides: www.proguides.com/nicolai
Riot Games has been running League of Legends as one of the biggest Esports games in the world for years.
And as the years go by and the popularity increases Riot Games has created specific rules for the Esports platform. Some being simple rules and some being quite rare and unique.
By the way, for this video I read the full LCS rule set.

    Not having a gf may just be a big advice for players since it can impact their play, and with that impact whole team's stats. But many of them have someone and even Rekkles has someone, like he said in a recent video.

    I disagree about the last Rule. It depends on how you manage having a girlfriend and being a Pro Gamer and the same time. We all value our ranks in League of Legends specially me because I'm currently on Master's Rank but I value my girlfriend most. If I'm playing League and then she calls because she wants to hang out or date or watch movies I would gladly quit my game even if it's rank because League is just there it's just a game it is made for enjoyment some Gamers find this game a serious competition but for me I don't I enjoy playing it and getting good at it while having a girlfriend. I've been playing League since Season 2 and also before I play League I already have a Girl which I've met 2010 after I encounter League. BTW the girl I'm talking about during 2010 was still my girl during this day 2019. We are 9 years already and I'm not having any trouble dealing with her or League because if you truly love something go for it but do not just love something you need to know their value and what they can give you in exchange. Having a girlfriend is not an issue. I may not be as good as Faker and I can't say I'm good at this game. But I'm proud to say that I'm an Average Gamer.

    6:42 the tweet wasn't meant to be offensive. In Brazilian culture, jokes are taken less seriously and, because they don't have the purpose of offending people, but to create a more intimate relationship, they are just thrown around without thinking. Not saying Riot was wrong (since it took international proportion and ordinary people wouldn't be able to see the real intentions), but he wasn't racist at all. 8:30 The Brazilian ADC BrTT, who is currently the best of his role by a LARGE margin, has a fiance.

    i think the fact that you have to be at least d3 to play in LCS is bullshit, ik theres not a single pro player that isnt on chall level but that means that they legit dont have to play soloq meaning soloq quality in high elo is garbage

    So been a professional player doesn't give you time to have a girl friend. So that means, been an actor, a soldier, a businessman, a doctor, etc that are married, have kids and some of them can risk there life and manage to make it work... most of the time. you virgins are weak fucks. Plus what is the point of having a lot of money, carrer, been famous if you don't have a girlfriend. i mean to me all of this looks meaningless if I don't share with a significant other. I mean when later? when your ballsack will fall from jacking off all day and when all women are married? (ps: this is available to homosexual people aswell)

    You'll never be a good boyfriend if you practice 12 hours a day. You also have to sleep for 8 hours. That's 4 hours left. That's time you need to eat, do chores, take shits, and other stuff like hobbies, watching VNchannel for instance (like we are doing now). You can't become a pro and have a girlfriend. The pros themselves say it: "everyone with a girlfriend starts to play worse." Don't argue with them, they know more than you. And do you really want a gf if you can only spend time with her for 4 hours a day? At best? Stop dreaming kiddo's, you'll never become a pro. Enjoy your normal life. Spend time with your girlfriend. Take her out to places and have fun together. The Climb is not for you.

    The rule about not having girlfriends may not exactly be a rule that applies with most, but it's a rule that koreans must abide by. I recently went for a talk on eSports and the speaker was a professor from a korean university. Their culture for eSports is much stricter than just not being allowed to have girlfriends. When they enter tournaments and join in the professional scene, they are not allowed to have any free use of social media. It's all monitored by their universities. They aren't allowed to have social life either, by which I mean no hanging around outside with friends and such, no visiting birthday parties and such unless it is approved of by their universities and team coaches. They also aren't allowed to play games that aren't part of the eSports area. It's all hard focused purely into eSports. They're basically told by professors and such that all other games are a waste of time and are detrimental. MMORPGs are emphasized as being the most pointless and worthless. Singleplayer story games like witcher 3 and other games are also said to be addictive and harmful to them so all other games are banned. While i do understand that its a sacrifice for the sake of earning big and become famous, it just feels overly restrictive.
