-- After a back-and-forth dialogue about maintaining the competitive ecosystem in League of Legends between Riot Games cofounder Marc Merrill and Team SoloMid owner Andy "Reginald" Dinh, things have taken a sharp turn.
Dinh announced on Twitlonger that he, along with several other team owners in the North American League Championship Series, have submitted a proposal to "solve these problems." He ended the note with #LCSForever.
Other teams and owners have tossed in their support for the hashtag.

Some have even speculated that this may be the beginning of collective bargaining in esports.
Did we all just publicly witness the beginning of LCS team owners uniting for collective bargaining with Riot Esports? - Kelby May (@KelbyMay) August 24, 2016
However, it is unclear if the European side of the League of Legends Championship Series was aware of the movement.
