Odoamne Demands More International League Tournaments
With Rogue losing to JD Gaming just after the group stage of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship, Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu’s participation was cut short. Odoamne voiced his opinions on international competitions and their frequency, still disgruntled after his Worlds performance.
Reminding the community that there are currently only two international tournaments—the Mid-Season Invitational and the League of Legends World Championship—Odoamne said “we really need more international tournaments” in a post on Twitter.
Odoamne also emphasized how Worlds season is always exciting for everyone, no matter if their team was stomped by the clear favorites.
“Even when we get goomba stomped the boys are having great time,” Odoamne said. “Enough of this one good tourney a year shit.”
Since League is easily one of the biggest esports in the world and has an enormous fanbase that regularly follows the tournament despite their regional teams dropping out of contention for the Summoner’s Cup, it’s sad to see the best teams clashing only once or twice per year. There are also Rift Rivals, but the event is, unfortunately, not taken seriously by viewers nor the players themselves since there was no real prize involved.
Thankfully, Riot Games hinted it will be restructuring Worlds next year, so there’s a chance we might see more international tournaments with meaningful rewards.
