Why do you have to have koreans?
Some people may argue that they are better, even though it's true for a lot of them ( taking a look at Dreamhack, Code S obviously etc. ). On a side note though, have a look at the foreigners like ThorZain ( sorry if written wrong :x ), Fenix, HuK... they are going berserk at the moment just because their teams put trust into them instead of picking some koreans.
The thing is, obviously you want your teams to win and I fully understand and agree with you there, since it's a business.
On the one hand there's a logical reason behind this, having some new and upcoming stars in your A-Team later on.
On the other hand though, it's one of the worst moves possible. Besides the already very poorly dealt PR thing with fenix and sen, fnatic misses a HUGE chance to gain some bonus in the community by providing an academy for foreigners to see them grow and advance in their playstyle.
Of course you may ask why you should pick foreigners over koreans?
The possibility I and many others, see there is, that you can:
1. raise your reputation within the community, relating in more visitors on your site and maybe more customers for your shop
2. Every team is picking up koreans nowadays and it's really really nothing special even more and even more unspectacular if they are not even A-team worthy right now.
3. If you would have picked up rising foreigners , this would have been something outstanding. Something we haven't seen as often as korean picks. Also if you would provide a cup with the winner being transferred to your academy for 1 month to prac with your pros, it would have a huge impact on your daily visitors and would make fnatic look even more professionel ( comparing it to professional sports like football, soccer etc. )
Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on the decision but I'm clearly not seeing the point in it at all. To me it's just such a poor news compared to what it could have been.
