Well currently Fusion University is too Korean heavy, but I really hope there won't be any Academy teams with 3 Koreans in future filling all 3 slots for non-region players. Of course this might be the case for 2019 Season 1 just, because some of them might still have contracts going.
When is 2019 Season 1 even meant to be starting? At same time with OWL? Just wondering, when we might hear news about new academy teams.
2/3 months after Contenders s3 I think
It's just with all this talk with Two-Way Players that has to mean that both Contenders seasons will be played while OWL? Most sense to my mind makes that if it's while Stage 1-2 and Stage 3-4, but who knows.
We'll have to see how the new rules affects FU, since I heard exceptions might be made for players who's contracts were signed before a certain date.
So I don't know what that means for the 5 non NA players, depending on who they would choose to keep, if they had to move them.
I really hope Academy teams will have the best possible rosters they can successfully build together, whether that's with or w/o 3 non region players is unimportant to me tbh.
NA is relatively weak when it comes to region exclusive talent so obviously there will be Academy teams with 3 KR/EU/AU/SA/PAC/CN players.
Is it likely that most, if not a majority, of those will be Korean? I think so. Do I think that's an issue? No, I actually don't. If NA players aren't skilled enough to take one of those 3 foreign-accessible spots then they shouldn't get them, imo.
I want the best that the region has to offer, because they're the ones that might get a shot at the league.
