LoL: The All-Star-Event 2019 flopps

In the League of Legends, the All-Star-Event 2019 took place. But the audience numbers were weak.

Others criticize Riot Games for the event: “That would have had too many twitch streamers, too few professionals and too many Teamfight-tactics.”

What is All-Stars-Event? The event took place from December 6th to 8th in Vegas. Here Riot Games celebrates itself at the end of the year.

The fans from all regions can choose 2 professional players who will be sent there. Riot Games invites additional pros and “celebrities” from all over the world to play against each other in some not very serious LoL formats.

There are:

-1vs1 Games
-URF competitions
-a tandem mode
-5vs5 matches like NA against EU or China against Korea.

It’s supposed to be a gigantic party.

2019 much less spectators than usual

That’s why the All-Star Event 2019 is considered a flop – The audience numbers at the All-Star Event 2019 were much lower than in 2018.

It was the least seen event of its kind since 2016:

-In 2018, 6,490,876 hours were watched – with 565,909 spectators at the peak.
-In 2019 it was only 4,126,052 hours – with only 293,351 spectators at the peak.

This is already a significant decline, as can be seen from Esports-Charts figures.

This can hardly be due to LoL itself, as a semi-final at the LoL-Worlds 2019 was the most-watched eSports event of all time.

This shows that LoL 2019 has lost nothing of its relevance, but the “All-Stars” event has.

This says Amazing – The German LoL-Pro, Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider, has become “Strategic Coach” for Misfits Gaming.

He twittered:

“To be honest, I’m glad that the All-Stars are a bit flopped this year. This should be an event to celebrate the dedication and diligence of our best players and not our most popular streamers.”

Too many twitch streamers – too few LoL professionals

What’s he talking about? This year only 2 professional players per region were directly elected by the fans.

From North America, about 3 professionals were invited (Bang, CoreJJ, Sneaky) but 8 celebrities. These are twitch streamers like Tyler1 or Yassu.

Also, other content creators like Disguised Toast or Hafu were invited to the event, although they have little to do with LoL, come from the Teamfight-Tactics corner.

There were 4 professionals from Europe and 11 celebrities: Of the 4 professionals, 3 came from G2 Esports (Jankos, Caps and Mikyx).

These many twitch streamers water down the All-Star event, as many believe. Especially since LoL streamers with “Twitch Rivals” actually have their format to see them there.

Also, the two most popular players from North America, DoubleLift and Bjergsen, were elected to the event but did not participate.

They were replaced by Bang and CoreJJ, Koreans who play in North America, but not for very long.

What else is criticized? On Reddit, the All-Star event is critically discussed. Here it is said that at the All-Star-Event 2019 the Lol-side mode “Teamfight Tactics” got too much attention. It is “fun to play, but boring to watch”.

The formats weren’t that exciting this year either. Many fans would prefer it if they just let the top pros of each region vote for them. You want to see a team of stars like Rookie, Tian, TheShy and Uzi – you could keep the streamers for the “fun modes”.

Other viewers, however, would like to point out that especially the “strongest LoL players” have so many games in their bones in December after 2 regular splits, the MSI and the Worlds that they should not be burdened with such an event.
