How did it happen that the Riot medal broke a few days after it was handed over to the player?
Three days ago, on April 11, the grand finals of the LEC 2021 Spring Split took place. Probably everyone already knows that it was MAD Lions who won with Rogue, taking first place.
It turns out, however, that the rewards they received are not as durable as could be expected. One of the players has already broken the medal.
A durable medal
Pros who won regional League of Legends tournaments received medals especially designed by the luxurious English brand Thomas Lyte, specializing mainly in gold and silver.
They have the shape of a decagon, weigh as much as 500 grams, and are engraved with the names of 10 competing teams. Additionally, they come with a custom-made ribbon, which turned out to be defective this time.
The shooter Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság found out about it by simply breaking the medal found. Fans learned about it when he unveiled it during his live stream:
Players laugh that this reflects the current state of League of Legends, where the client has been broken for several years and the game is full of bugs that Riot can’t deal with very often.
However, it’s not that bad and a person who knows how to sew would certainly be able to fix it. It is known that the prize for such a prestigious tournament should be created more carefully and be of better quality. On the other hand, we don’t know what the player was doing with it.
