Three champions will be disabled from professional play beginning next week. As expected, Sett is being given some time for teams to practice and scrim around. Meanwhile, Lux and Syndra are packing some easily replicable and game breaking bugs.
Lux and Syndra will be disabled for #LEC Week 1 and until further notice as they are currently suffering from potentially game-altering bugs for competitive play.
Sett will also be disabled for Week 1 to ensure all #LEC teams have proper time to practice with & against him.

When new or reworked champions are released, they are always globally banned for half of a patch or more. Sett will be no exception. While the LEC and LCS begin next week, the ban should be lifted by the time the LCK and other regional leagues start up. The LPL has also already disabled Sett for their games from his release day onward.
As for Syndra and Lux, they could technically be re-enabled whenever Riot fixes their bugs. Riot does frequently release mid-patch updates and bug fixes. The question is how fast the solutions will come in. Lux hasn’t been present in the professional meta recently, but Syndra has been a strong pick that many teams have been prioritizing. If Riot says that she will remain disabled until next patch, teams will likely take a break from practicing with her.
The LEC and LCS Spring 2020 Splits begin on January 24th and 25th respectively.
