During the draft phase in the second game of the EU LCS’s Third Place series between Unicorns of Love vs H2K, the teams encounter a strange bug that resulted in random champions being locked in, rather than the team’s desired picks.
The bug was first noticed when Move appeared to lock in Azir as the Unicorns of Love’s second pick. Due to Azir’s weakness on the current patch the casters immediately assumed an error had occurred. The teams returned to the lobby to attempt picks and bans again, but the bug occurred two more times before it was decided that Riot’s Quality Control team would take a moment to investigate the problem.
Champs are auto-locking during select at #EULCS. We're investigating. Our QC team asked for 15 mins to investigate. Will update often.— Ariel Horn (@ArielHorn) August 27, 2016
After their investigation, and an almost 40 minute delay, champion select was finally completed correctly and the series was able to continue.
