After ordering an all-you-can-drink plan and a set of snacks available only for public viewing, we were ready to watch the game!
The match is about to begin!
Sengoku Gaming was able to get the first blood, but they were able to keep the difference by focusing on the object.
The first match lasted 40 minutes!
The fans at the venue were engrossed in the screen as the battle was heated and closely contested.
There are several monitors set up in the venue, and a mini-map is enlarged next to the big screen, making it very easy to see.
But! As you all know the result, DetonatioN FocusMe won the championship by winning three games in a row!
Sengoku Gaming had some close games, but could not win a single game, and ended up as the runner-up in LJL 2022 Summer...!
There were devices at the venue that recreated the environment in which Once played.
Once uses a Logitech G mouse, keyboard, headset, and mousepad, and an AGON PRO AG275QXL monitor, which was jointly developed by AOC and Raiatto Games.
In the store area, original goods from Sengoku Gaming and LoL are for sale!
Some Sengoku Gaming goods are also available at PayPay Mall!
We got a Sengoku Gaming tote bag, stickers, and a mini clear file with LoL's Caitlin on it as souvenirs!

Public viewing that brings the venue together

LJL, which has teamed up with Yoshimoto Kogyo to offer offline viewing at Yoshimoto Eternal Hall, is now forced to hold its games online due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus.
However, now that the new coronavirus outbreak has forced LJL to be held online, it is easier to cheer on LJL fans from home since all games are distributed free of charge, but there is something about watching offline that only those who have participated can understand: the excitement and sense of unity.
We hope that the number of places where fans can get together and experience offline games will increase, even if only a little, so that more people can learn about the appeal of e-sports.
