That said, the screen looking with Azubu Frost was not covered in your first post. Yes, what you said happened, but that was not the allegation by the community. The mini-map checking very much happened in the REMADE game, not only the first game before the remake. That game mattered, that game finished.

Here is, very clearly, the evidence: http://imgur.com/La0uB
That's it.

Mistakes happen and it is bad for the community, bu we can live with it.
The map viewing was explained and i didn't think that AF, TSM and WE looked there to cheat in the explained situations.

But AF was warned and did it a second time. The whole forum talked about it yesterday and still today and Riot seems to ignore it (there was no further incident reported?).

They ignore it because that pic was taken pre-game and used to troll people all night last night.

Cheating allegations, power outages, internet failures... Why can't they just remake the whole tournament!

dont forget this is where the real issue is:

for those of you who need a visual reference of what to look for:

what happens is AF looks at mini map, then blind-pings EXACTLY where TSM is 13 seconds later

i think quite a few of us are still o.O at the "Looking up" followed by a ping pointing out enemy position with TSM vs Frost.

I mean i take your guys words over any screencaps on internet of course.
It just looked really bad.

So when people ping a fogged out area of a map 20 seconds into the match, we'll just assume Korean players are just so good they have psychic powers now as is documented by the Twitch vods?

You'll ban and suspend regular players for swearing or trolling you in champion select because your e-feelings were hurt but when people's livelihoods are on the line and $2 million is at stake, you'll look the other way in the face of evidence.

Maybe you'll even tell us how much you learned about dogs again.

The post you're quoting is 15 minutes off from where the actual screen cap happened.

If you read through that post you will find my answer to this:

get to 5:32:45. That is the actual place the pic and the video shows all the time.
The OP of that thread is the real troll.

(start at 5:32:30 end at 5:33:00)

When the camera goes up behind the crowed you can see AF and how one of them (Woong, second from left) looks up there. Some sec later he pings it on the map.

Sorry, but you fell for a troll.
Investigate for yourself and don't believe everything.

AF should get punished for that. Maybe ban them from one tournament (the next Riot tournament they could attempt to).

Nothing but damage control bs lying nonsense. Red posts covering their a55 and saying no cheating occurred, but that "they'll investigate".

No internal investigation: from police departments to accounting firms, has ever produced honest results.

Public relations garbage.

Wait, I'm confused. Aren't tournament games shoutcasted on a delay? So wouldn't they be looking at a map that's 3 minutes out of date? If that was such a big deal for normal spectator mode, why on earth is that not the case for tournament play? I thought that's why it always takes a few minutes between picks/bans and the game start...
