League of Legends community has been worried about the direction LCS is headed and Riot is trying to put some fires out.

In a recent interview, Travis Gafford talk with the top of the esports in Riot Games - Naz Aletaha and John Needham.

The duo had a lot to reveal in the video, including some of the future plans in League of Legends esports but one thing that should make North American fans happy stood out - LCS broadcast times will be moved up.

Namely, the problem arose when Riot decided to move LCS broadcasts into weekday time slots that are not ideal for many LCS viewers as Valorant esports seem to have taken favour in the region.

Thankfully, Riot Games made the decision to move the broadcast by a few hours on Thursdays and Fridays, which will now start at 2:00 PM PT / 5:00 PM ET.

While still not the evening hours, it will be more feasible for North American fans while European viewers will be able to catch a few LCS matches as well.

That said, the hours will be a bit late for Europe still so the biggest match of each evening, usually being the last during the show, will likely happen in the early morning hours for EU.

Nevertheless, the concern for LCS should remain as the league is still falling off in popularity and the situation looks grim without potential success at international tournaments anywhere on the horizon.
