Changes to the Interregional Movement Policy 

Riot are changing their Interregional Movement Policy. Here's the TL;DR:
"TL;DR: We’re making a few key changes to the Interregional Movement Policy (IMP) we established back in September 2014 in order to preserve opportunities for homegrown talent in their regions, facilitate a healthy balance of imported players and homegrown players, and maintain strong regional identities. Under the current system it’s likely that by the end of this year, 4 out of 5 starting players will be imported players on many teams in certain regions, which drove us to make these changes. The IMP will still require that teams field no more than 2 non-residents and at minimum 3 IMP residents on their starting rosters. The two key changes are: 
  • Increasing the time current non-residents need to reside in a region to be classified as an IMP resident from 2 to 4 years (calculated in splits).
  • Preventing future non-residents (for instance, imported players who first join a league in 2017) from earning IMP residency status through time spent residing in a country, and instead basing that status on other prerequisites like citizenship."


DUOS: Huni and Reignover

Here's a look at Riot's new series, Duos.

"DUOS is an LCS anthology series that follows a few of the NA LCS pros in their pursuit to become summer split champions. Our third duo is Immortals’ Huni and Reignover. 
In their short time together, Huni and Reignover have established themselves as one of the most dominant pairings in the LCS. Since leaving Korea to join Fnatic less than two years ago, they’ve raked in accolades including EU Outstanding Rookie, NA Most Valuable Player, back-to-back EU LCS titles and the first undefeated split in LCS history. Now living in America, Immortals’ top-jungle duo must lean on their friendship and brotherhood as they look to continue their legacy of success.
