Seems like with players this skilled and closely matched, an imbalance like this could really affect the outcome, and the competitive nature of the tournament.
They claim this will be fixed in the next patch, which I hope would be out before the finals. Otherwise if I was either team, I would protest it and delay the match.

League of Legends has the 2nd highest prize purse at the US final after Counter-Strike, which is $5000 for first and $2500 for 2nd. That's if you don't count the hardware prizing from Samsung ($3000 total)

I understand that that may not be a lot of money for those of you who are gainfully employed, but it's completely in line with competitive gaming prizes and this event.

I find your comment to be both ignorant and disrespectful of Samsung & WCG, who are both excited to start a partnership with League of Legends.

Samsung graciously helped out with the US event since there was a live final. Please don't turn this into a "why didn't x get x."

We are working hard to gather support for events in all countries, but there are always good reasons as to why x gets x and y gets y.
