League of Legends fans in Southeast Asia would have to wait a little longer for the next round of esports action, as the next edition of the Pacific Championship Series (PCS 2021) has been postponed until 19 February.
This delay is due to the escalation of COVID-19 across SEA, and Riot Games SEA wants to ensure the well-being of players and staff before they proceed with the regional LoL competitive circuit. Fortunately, the postponement is a short one, as PCS 2021 Spring Split Season 2 was slated to begin on 5 February.

The first season of PCS last year also saw a delay due to COVID-19. PCS 2020 Spring was supposed to begin on 8 February before being pushed back to 29 February. PSG Talon (formerly Talon Esports) won the PCS 2020 Spring before Machi Esports took on the championship title in the Summer Split; the pair’s last major appearance was in Worlds 2020, where they placed 10th and 13th, respectively.
In other related news, Berjaya Dragons will be representing Malaysia in PCS 2021 Spring Split Season 2 for the third time in this league. They placed sixth in both PCS 2020 Spring and Summer.
