: Riot did say that they in Europe, they will host in cities where Esports is taken serious. Seeing how big Spain is in Esports, its not a surprise. And France is internationally friendly for air travel. As for casting, trust me its the last thing you really listen to when in a live match. I am spanish and I never pay attention to the casters. And in last years Summer Finals, the EU casters were very active.
Plus c'mon if casting language is so irrelevant you as Spanish speaker would not mind English casting or Chinese or Korean for that matter. Because as soon as match starts everyone goes wild. And yet we need to have this discussion.
: From Berlin you have more than enough time to make it into a mini vacation, buy an [interrail pass](https://www.interrail.eu/), that allows you to travel for a number of days through a part of europe, and you could visit Poland, Czech republic, Slowakia, as well as travel to the next stage. I agree that it's a huge letdown that there's only 3 locations, but there's enough time between the stages to still make a nice vacation out of it.
Vacation that takes month is not mini :-)

Seeing how many polish players are in lol (both amatour and pro) and having madrid not warsaw as location, it's not about serious esport scene. Politics? I can believe that. Joke is that in Poland it would be english hands down. And lastly, trust me, first esport i watched on arena was starcraft, it's cool you have events in local languages it's better if greater community can understand what is going on and that part of knowing what's happening is crucial in sport that is more than tossing a ball all over the place (again first matches i watched was starcraft) For me it's a finger to east europe and England + Ireland (should I mention Scandinavia and other smaller entities)

Well to be honest, 3 locations for all the Europe is a huge letdown. Especially if you take into account that 2 locations are not going to be hosted in English. Meh. No Worlds for me then.

: Wait, if its from 13 leagues shouldn´t it be 26 teams? IF some regions get more teams its kinda bullshit if you ask me.
Not sure if you have watched last couple of worlds, usually non-core leagues are getting stomped pretty early. What is more sometimes NA or EU got stomped pretty early. It makes sense to actually have more of stronger leagues than equal number of everyone as it's guaranteeing two problems: a) obvious winner before group stage begins and b) uninteresting matches.
