Other EU League of Legends tournaments would be 'a great idea' – Fnatic

Fnatic’s chief gaming officer and co-owner Patrik “cArn” Sättermon says League of Legends could benefit from a change to its competitive structure in Europe.
Speaking to Esports News UK at the Vainglory Spring Unified Championship at London’s O2 this weekend, cArn said: “I’m excited to see what’s around the horizon when it comes to EU and the LCS and League of Legends as a whole, because changes need to be made, I think.
“We cannot just accept a plateau, we need to find new ways of keeping excitement and we can probably cross-pollinate the respective regions a bit more than we do today.
“Spring Split, Summer Split, then you meet the global teams, but should it be more? Okay you have MSI for the winners, but I think we need to think more about how we make it exciting during the year.”
So maybe the scene would benefit from other European tournaments being introdiced in the future?
“There are wiser men than myself to determine that, but that would be a great idea I think,” cArn added.
 

“Changes need to be made, I think. We cannot just accept a plateau, we need to find new ways of keeping excitement and we can probably cross-pollinate the respective regions a bit more than we do today.”

 
We also asked him about Fnatic’s academy team and whether Fnatic is any closer to finding a buyer for it.
As Fnatic already have a main League of Legends roster in the EU LCS, they will both need to sell their academy team spot.
The Fnatic academy spot has been linked with Laser Kittenz and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
“It’s still work in process,” cArn said.
“We are close and we will announce as soon as we possibly can.”
On leaving behind the Fnatic academy players once the spot is sold, cArn said: “It’s a bittersweet thing.
“We’ve obviously worked closely with our guys and we’re proud to have them working with Fnatic, but there are obviously multi-team ownership restrictions which we need to relate to.
“But I’m sure things are going to turn out successfully.”
