League of Legends: VCS Winter 2021 tournament will be held for Vietnam from 16th November to 31st December. If you are a Vietnam fan, you will be deeply saddened as none of the teams has represented this region since the past three League of Legends World Championships. This year, the two Vietnamese representatives, GAM Esports and Saigon Buffalo failed to acquire visas for Europe when the hosting venue was changed to Reykjavik, Iceland. Thus they had to forfeit their spots for the Worlds 2021. Earlier this year, the Vietnam Championship Series (VCS) also got canceled and the fans were left heartbroken.
We hear that there is some important match today, but let’s talk about something even more interesting 😂
