Riot plans to introduce a system similar to the NA LCS Player’s Association for the 2019 EU LCS Partnership System

In an interview with The Shotcaller, the Head of European League of Legends Management Marc Schnell stated, that there currently are plans to introduce a system to the EU LCS that is similar to the NA LCS’ Player Association

“We currently have feedback rounds with Pro players, and that’s something we want to expand on. Once the Partnership System rolls around next year, we intend there to be a Committee System, in which the players will have a role in as well.”

Schnell also commented that the new system is still in the process of being built:

“We didn’t feel ready yet to announce it, because there still are some hurdles to overcome. From my point of view it’s also important that this happens organically. Ultimately it should be done by the players, only then can it be effective.”

The NA LCS Player’s Association has undergone criticism in the recent weeks, for not being taken seriously by the players. Schnell also hopes to improve on this for EU:

“We’re going to incentivise players towards voting, raising their voice, being involved, and those kinds of things. We’ll have to see where it goes from there.”
