Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the LCK initially reverted to broadcasting without a studio audience in February. This was followed by a complete suspension from 2nd March.

Both the LCS and LEC have also adopted an online format in light of the virus, after they similarly briefly postponed to figure out how they’ll adapt to the situation.

A number of other esports tournaments have been affected by the virus, including FGC events like the Tekken World Tour, the Rocket League World Championships and more.
