So, as best as I understand, Riot is trying to make LoL like actual sports. All star weekends, arenas, prizes worth fighting for. Perhaps a change in how tournaments are conducted is in order? In real sports teams have a day to think about their losses, recover, formulate strategies, etc. Thus my recommendation is to have at the very least the season championship be over a month or so. 1 game of each best of ___ per day. Instead of the 5 games in 1 day. Honestly as a viewer, even watching 5 games between the same teams who are sometimes using very similar teams every time, it gets a little stale and puts me in somewhat of an impatient mood (even if the matches are exciting and quickly dispel that). This is just a suggestion. I think it gives the tournament a more "sport" feel instead of a computer game tournament.

I think this probably has more to do with costs than anything else. I pretty sure renting out an arena for a whole month would be pretty expensive. Not to mention travel, lodging, & food costs for the teams. These guys make money but its not on the scale of an NFL team.

The only series that is best of 5 at Worlds is the championship match, and it is the only one played that day. All the others are best of 3 and played over several days.
