Riot will host Masters 2 at Copenhagen, Denmark which will be a LAN event. It is scheduled to take place between 10-24 July 2022.
Riot has organised a lot of Valorant and LoL events, but without a live audience. It seems like Copenhagen could change that. So, all the fans, be ready for a LAN soon!
Recently, Riot has added a new map – Pearl. It is a beautiful map with an oceanic theme. It is not a part of esports right now. But, it will be very interesting to watch how teams play on it when it comes to esports.
