Liquid’s CEO offers solutions to save NA’s tier-2 LoL scene as more teams ditch LCS Academy

Over the last few weeks, there has been plenty of discussion around the fate of North America’s tier-two League of Legends scene. The viability of such a system in the region’s current ecosystem has been put under a microscope, especially after Riot Games removed a mandate requiring LCS teams to field a Challengers League roster. Unsurprisingly, hope is dwindling for the region’s path-to-pro system.

Luckily for aspiring pros, one major organization will continue its support for tier-two competition: Team Liquid. The team’s CEO Steve Arhancet released a lengthy video in which he discussed the team’s ongoing support of NA’s tier-two scene, saying that Academy is a crucial component for the development of talent in the country.
