MonteCristo and DoA Leave LCK
Christopher “MonteCristo” Mykles has announced on Twitter
While we’re still waiting on an official statement from the pair, this announcement comes after several months of public bad blood between the casters and Riot over pay disputes. This is also something of a theme for Riot lately, with teams also vocally criticizing the pay structure of their tournaments.
MonteCristo and DoA being absent from LCK marks the end of a decade-long era of casting for the event. He assures fans that they will both continue casting Overwatch on Korean cable television network OGN’s Apex.
2017’s LCK will instead be broadcast by Chris “PapaSmithy” Smith, and new OGN caster Seth “Achilios” King.
