Tech Issues cause Massive Delays at the NA LCS Promotion Series

in the middle of the Team Coast vs The Walking Zed match, gameplay kept having to be paused due to FPS issues, with two PCs having to be swapped out.

The gameplay kept on without a hitch after that, but Riot has regardless delayed the tournament for a hour, and then after they came back from that break again an additional hour was added.

While this is unfortunate for the competitors, at least the announcers are being upfront and professional about the situation, unlike some other leagues that might just throw it to commercial and come back an unordinate amount of time later.

So props to Riot, and here's hoping that they can get this resolved soon.
