    导出博客文章Riot Games will hold a meeting tomorrow at 11 a.m. Pacific time with an open
    invite to coaches, analysts and professional League of Legends teams competing
    in the League Championship Series. The meeting is being called to discuss recent
    changes to the game that were announced on Wednesday, sources close to the teams
    and Riot Games tell ESPN. All the teams in the North American LCS have been
    invited.The meetings purpose is to obtain feedback concerning the game-play
    changes, which will launch in the coming weeks before the LCS playoffs and the
    World Championship. It comes after players, coaches and analysts expressed their
    unhappiness with the timing of the changes in a series of emails to Riot,
    sources say. In their invite to teams, Riot says it will not discuss the timing
    of the changes, simply the changes themselves.These changes will shift the early
    game as they make a common strategy, the lane swap, less impactful. Lane swaps
    essentially swap a teams top and bottom lane, putting the teams top laner in a
    one-versus-two situation, and the teams bottom lane in a two-versus-one. This
    gives several competitive advantages, including the ability to make a weaker
    bottom lane survive through the early part of the game.On social media, some
    professional players, coaches, and analysts have been outspoken about their
    distaste with the changes, while others have praised the changes.Riot Games

    Mark Cavendish secured the Olympic silver medal in the mens omnium but admitted
    he was culpable for a crash which threatened to extend his wait for a podium
    place.Cavendish finally got his hands on an Olympic medal -- after eight years
    of trying and at the third attempt -- when he finished behind Italys Elia
    Viviani, with defending champion Lasse Norman Hansen of Denmark picking up
    bronze.A mid-race crash appeared to be of Cavendishs own making, but there was
    no protest as South Koreas Park Sanghoon was taken out of the Rio Velodrome on a
    stretcher.The incident, which happened with 109 laps of the 140-lap points race
    remaining, was reviewed by officials at the time and Cavendish was absolved of
    blame, according to Press Association Sport. Had officials determined Cavendish
    was at fault, he would have been sanctioned there and then.It was my fault,
    Cavendish said. I shouldve looked where I was going a bit more. I hope hes all
    right. I apologised to Elia, who went down.The Great Britain rider is reported
    to have had several confrontations with the media in the mixed zone as he was
    questioned about the incident, with one journalist reporting he threatened to
    sue them for suggesting he did it deliberately.?Cavendish had a 16-point deficit
    entering the concluding points race. Twenty points were available for gaining a
    lap, but Cavendish was heavily marked and Vivianis advantage was too much to
    bridge.Instead Cavendish had to fend off attacks from riders vying to depose him
    from the podium, steadily accumulating points in the sprints which came every 10
    laps to take silver.I kept trying to go. It was difficult. It was a strange one,
    Cavendish added. Im always going to be a marked man.I had to get the sprints. I
    felt incredible. I could see people dying and I felt better and better. I knew
    at the halfway point it was going to be difficult tto get a lap and Id just have
    to pick off sprints one by one.ddddddddddddUltimately I couldnt have done any
    more. I have to be happy. Elia was better across the six disciplines. He
    deserved to win that Olympic gold. Its always disappointing not to win, but I
    did all I could, so yes, Im happy.Cavendishs silver ended a long wait for an
    Olympic medal and came a month after leaving the Tour de France early with four
    stage wins, taking his career tally to 30, which is second only to Eddy Merckx.I
    made every day count, Cavendish said. He was ninth in the Madison with Sir
    Bradley Wiggins at the 2008 Games in Beijing, suffering the ignominy of being
    the only member of the track team not to win a medal.Cavendish felt he could
    have ridden one of the three team pursuit rounds, earning a medal. And he had a
    wry smile when asked if he made his point with his performance in the individual
    pursuit, the second omnium discipline.He clocked four minutes 16.878 seconds,
    within two seconds of Wiggins Olympic record from Beijing 2008, which Hansen
    went on to surpass.Cavendish said: I had to slow down. I wouldve gone for Brads
    [Olympic] record, but you guys would start click-baiting that I did it because I
    didnt want to be friends with him.He has achieved two of his 2016 goals -- the
    Tours yellow jersey and an Olympic medal -- and now will turn his attentions to
    the third, a second road race world title in Qatar in October.He celebrated with
    his family, wife Peta, four-year-old daughter Delilah Grace and son Frey, who is
    one on Wednesday. Finnbar, Petas son from a previous relationship, was also
    present.Cavendish, who flies home Tuesday, added: Im racing on Sunday [at
    Vattenfall Cyclassics in Germany]. Its back to the day job. ' ' '
