@Riot how come immediate action towards digi/crs not towards these teams?

I can personally confirm that no WE player looked at the minimap at any point during the match.
Players make eye contact on stage fairly regularly. Team WE in particular talked directly to each other a good amount. A single, limited camera view with a field of a few feet is not enough to determine where a someone is looking on a cross-stage scale. We directly monitor players to assure this is not the case, and maintained due diligence at all times over the course of the event.
Say what you like about WE's gameplay, but they did not jeopardize their chances of staying in the tournament by looking at the minimap (EDIT for clarity- because they didn't look at the minimap. If they had looked at the minimap, it would have jeopardized their standing in the tournament. I am not, in any way, condoning any player who gains an unfair advantage from any means).
Digi and Crs had no actual proof of what you and MLG got butthurt over. You never came out with any evidence, and there was no evidence from fans coming out to back up that they "colluded™" for the money. Only that the players themselves said they agreed to a ARAM match only.
Riot good to know you will bend over backwards and break your spines towards China, Korea, and the like. It's showing in everything you are doing, like creating special icons for them, not creating champions that would insult them, but hey who cares if it would insult us right? Right?
I'm not racist, but come on those pictures are pretty crystal clear evidence. Not once did they open their mouth to talk to their team-mates, or even to listen to a team-mate, cause no one was talking to them at that time of looking up. Riot you are so full of ****, and trying to bow-down to them for business. Starcraft wouldn't let this **** happen, and would have taken action, lol even better, would have made it so that this shouldn't have happen. I didn't know that it took a genius to build a booth to cover up everything.
Don't tell me you were hurting on money at this, so you cut corners. That's full of **** if you try to give that excuse. So to close my point, I love how you immediately branded Digi, and Crs as liars, cheaters, and took immediate action towards them with no ****ing proof at all. Oh and please tell and show us the exact proof of this quality fans have shown about the other teams this event. I'd love to see your comprehensive research into this matter like you are supposedly doing now (that was sarcasm cause you aren't).
