Thinking globally with new name!

Do you normally pay attention to what is going on in leagues other than the ones that are in your own backyard? Maybe not. But with all leagues under one roof, it’s now easier to look at League of Legends as one organic whole. Not only that, but there is also a new logo for League of Legends.

A possible way to explain the rebranding is to look at viewership habits during COVID-19. The world continues to be in some form of lockdown. As a result, people needs things to do.

One of the things they are doing is watching LoL. Riot says that viewership in the regions of China, South Korea, North America, and Europe have jumped almost 130 percent. Stats show that LoL fans continue to watch competition taking place abroad.

For example, that means Korean fans watch matches in Europe.
