I think someone tested positive for covid, so they had to pause the tournament.

Don't forget hissy fits by coaches when they have to resort to the backup plan that was agreed to before starting the tournament.

The coach of Rise threw a hissy fit because of the positive tests changing the way the game would be played. The whole tournament was online not on LAN even though they were in the same place specifically in case this happened. Rise didn't have a problem until their match was effected. The coach apparently threatened to pack up and leave if he didnt get his way. Absolutely pathetic. Guaranteed if Rise were the team being able to play from the hotel and FaZe being stuck playing in the venue they would have ZERO issue. Riot did their best to make it work and to have a backup plan for the event of things going awry. Make no mistake, there was a way the match could have proceeded, and Rise got in the way of that. Next time, read the rules of the event you're participating in so you don't throw a wrench in the whole thing right in the middle of it.

Whether or not you agree or disagree with Rise deciding not to play the game you have to acknowledge that this was not Riot's fault. They did everything they could to give the teams and fans an in person event. Sounds like it will be played online sometime before Champions.
