Apperently, every player that competes at LCS 4 with a team has to sign a contract. That contract forbids them to stream some games like starcraft franchise, HoN, dota 2 etc. (but also some seemingly random chosen games). The contract also forbids drug and tobacco use on stream (but not alcohol).
Riot said that these professionals will shed a bad light at LoL when streaming other games because they have a huge audience and they need to do this step to protect LoL as a professional sport.
What do you think about that?
Imho it's a disgusting move from a buisiness company that has a monopol. Competing teams are dependent on LoL to earn money for their living. So Riot can do whatever they want and that is just a huge step that has nothing to do with protect LoL from sheding bad light at it but censoring private lifes and bury competition from other games. I've personally never heard of any professional sports commitee that forbids their professionals to stream other sports in their free time as it could harm their own sport.
