LA LLA RETURNS THIS JANUARY 30, FIND OUT EVERYTHING YOU NEED
The League of Legends Latin American League returns to our screens this January 30, 2021, with a weekend that promises to excite the fans from the beginning, because we will see the rematch between R7 and All Knights.
The 8 best teams in Latin America will face each other every weekend, all online, and with a new schedule: 5 PM MX, 6 PM CO / PE and 8 PM AR / CL. In case the pandemic allows it, we could see face-to-face playoffs but without an audience.

Thanks to Riot Games we had the opportunity to interview the PR Manager of Riot Games Latam Juan José Moreno about the news and what the community can expect for this LLA 2021.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE COMPETITIVE LEVEL OF LATAM THIS 2021?
We begin by talking about the competitive level of the region, something that always becomes the center of discussion when it comes to international competitions.
With the arrival of Kaos Latin Gamers and Estral Esports, the league becomes more robust at a competitive level, however, all fans would like to know what other measures are being taken in the LLA to raise the competitive level of our region?
Without a doubt adding Estral and KLG along with all the changes that the squads had will bring us games that cannot be lost. Last year we tested a new competitive format that we felt worked so that each game was key to the future of the teams in the competition, and this made following the league every weekend more exciting.
The Latin American League of League of Legends returns this 2021 with many news and epic clashes, find out everything you need.
We are proud that there are more and more Latin American players competing in other regions, this is a sign that the competitive level of the region is increasing and among our plans, in addition to strengthening the growth of the LLA, we are currently also working on boosting the level competitive from the national leagues.
THE CHALLENGES OF AGAIN ORGANIZING A 100% VIRTUAL LEAGUE
We also wonder, how is the LLA handling a new tournament in completely online mode? And how are the teams living it?
Each team is an autonomous organization that defines the security measures that are most appropriate for its organization, we at Riot have a certain line of care that we implement with all those who do ALL and we will maintain the home office.
Based on these guidelines, we made the decision that, given the context of the pandemic, the opening will be played online during the first weeks of competition and, under optimal conditions, we would love for the teams to play the stadium again in Artz, without an audience, for the playoffs.
DO NOT MISS NEW DYNAMICS AND COLLABORATIONS LIKE LLA X CRUNCHYROLL
Surely you have seen on social networks that there will be new dynamics of co-stream and collaborations with platforms with Crunchyroll, will this be limited to the online circuit or will we continue to enjoy rewards of this type if we return to the face-to-face form in the future?
Our commitment is always to offer the best experience to our players and this, in the context imposed by COVID-19, largely means that in 2021 we will look for a way to offer a great digital experience to our fans and this type of action is an example of it.
In 2020 we learned that we could find great ways to improve the experience of watching the league from home and if tournaments are live again, our goal will be to find different ways for all viewers – online and offline – to enjoy the competition no matter where they are. find.
THE FUTURE OF TFT AND WILD RIFT COMPETITIVE IN LATAM
Finally, the PR Manager at Riot Games told us a bit about the future of competitive TFT and the brand’s new addition to mobile, Wild Rift:
During the launch of the 2021 season the esports team announced that this year we will see more about how we envision the future of esports for LoL and also for new games from Riot Games, including TFT and Wild Rift.
In sum, the LLA continues with the fighting format that was implemented in 2020, taking all security measures with an entirely online competition, and always looking for the community to enjoy do it right.
