Riot Games is on a changing spree and these modifications have altered many important upcoming League of Legends events in 2017 and even more are scheduled for 2018 but some competitions have been scrapped. A shining example is the EU Challenger Series which will no longer be part of the National League of Legends Championships.
Players need not worry because this tournament will be replaced by one of similar magnitude and perhaps even more exciting. That’s because the video game developer is ready to introduce a brand-new European tournament involving teams from several countries. Details are yet to surface regarding the manner in which the teams will be invited as well as the structure of the competition.
No More EU Challenger Series
Many promising players have used the EU Challenger Series as a springboard to stardom and are unhappy to see them go away. For English and Irish teams in particular, this competition will be dearly missed, but they are worth the replacements coming right over. The final stage of the ESL UK & Ireland Premiership is about to start and either Excel Esports or Team Singularity will win the tournament.
Residents from other countries are wondering whether their nations will be included in the new tournament and Riot Games is expected to set some light on this matter. It is very likely that the winners of the previous EU Challenger Series Qualifiers will be included, so teams from the Scandinavian countries as well as Germany, Spain, Poland and France will be invited.
