If you planned on watching the play-in stage of League of Legends‘ 2019 Mid-Season Invitational, you might need to adjust your schedule. There will no longer be any games played on Friday, April 3 and Saturday, April 4 due to two national days of mourning in Vietnam.
As a result of this change, there will reportedly be eight games played on the remaining days of the play-in stage, according to Vietnamese esports website LienMinh360. Games on Wednesday, May 1 will begin at 4am CT and the day will end with a final match at 11am CT.
The following day, the games will begin at the same time. Finally, on Sunday, April 5, eight more games will play out from 12am CT to 7am CT. There won’t be any changes to the order in which teams play out their matches.
The two days of national mourning are because of the recent passing of former Vietnamese president, Le Duc Anh, who died of a serious illness on Monday, April 22. This means that no events can be held on these two days.
These changes haven’t been confirmed by Riot Games yet, so this schedule may not be entirely accurate. Riot, however, will have to adjust its schedule due to the lost two days. Check the unofficial schedule changes and see if you might need to move around your viewing times, too.
