Because players are in an open market territory, there is no salary cap. Therefore they can always have biddings for them up until whatever. There is no cap. So we clubs are paying salaries in an open market.
I’m a big believer that whoever thinks that’s wrong, he knows within his variables that it is wrong. It’s either he’s missing variables to get better context of the whole situation, or we are plain wrong. But truthfully if you look at the numbers, and I try to be as pragmatic as I can with all this, I just see that it is clear that we are not in a balanced system in League of Legends.
We are limited by simple rules of the league. Second of all, we cannot have access to media rights that theoretically, because we are a part of the broadcast, we should have access to. You can argue more or less… that we do not own the IP. Obviously the "Soccer" is not owned by anyone, right? But IP here is owned by Riot. Truthfully, they should own some of the media rights. But because we appear, we are also entitled to part of the media rights. However because we do not have access to that, we are not able to generate the revenue in an open market. You see the imbalance?
