Yeah, has got to be live. Except for Europeans, ofcourse. I do understand why you don't really have the ability to pick any time you want on such short notice. However, the same cannot be said for Grand Finals. As far as your schedule is concerned, the grand finals actually start at a time even later than the matches from other days ended. It's from about 4 to 9am, and knowing Riot, anyone who stays up for it will probably have to wait till 5 before any game starts, and with breaks and such if it goes to game 5 they'll be watching till 11am.

If you really tried to accomodate Europeans, you would not have scheduled the grand finals on the very worst time possible for them.

I guess sh*t happens with all these different timezones, but Europeans having to miss part of the quarter finals, and the entire semifinals and finals? I'd really like to be wined and dined before I'm f*cked.

P.S. Least you could do to accomodate Europeans (well, anyone, really) is fix your VODs so we can actually watch the games we couldn't watch live because of unfortunate broadcasting time / timezone.

But ohhh you didn't see anything? I guess it's to hard to cover up right now so you will pretend like you never said anything and now everything is good.

Throwing a dice and pray that the tournament will workout is not professional and I'm afraid that I don't think you will ever be :/
Thanks for the vote of confidence my man! Working hard to prove you wrong

not quite fair of an accusation here, living in US meant i had to watch iem kiev on a really odd time. same thing for dreamhack 2011 which took place in switz i believe?

out of curiosity, how much of a factor is the time limit on these remakes? would you be more open to a complete do-over starting from the quarter-finals onward just based on the circumstantial evidence of what happened? or is it a case of needing a certain level of solid proof before u would even think about remaking all those games?

Just a suggestion to you RedBeard for all the EU fans out here that cant see the Live stream.
Cant you guys created a channel/page that takes you directly to the replays without giving away the results?
Its really hard to find replays in the forum without noticing or on youtube when you see "xxx vs xxx game 1of2" then you already after game 1 know who wins :/

RedBeard can you confirm Reginalds statement to there not being a remake or anything because of schedule purposes?
here is Reginalds answer to " Will there be a remake question"
A:No, unfortunately not. I'm not happy with the situation but since riot is behind schedule already, the matches must go on"
Have they already been informed about this?
Or are you guys still deliberating on this.

clg eu and WE will be starting over at game 1

there will not be anything done (announced yet) to AZF due to time constraints.
(this was said by regi in a AMA - Riot said that theres not enough time nad hte finals must be met on that date ready to go.

Reginald is always a whinger dude... During major tournaments, he's to arrogant to admit that his team can be knocked out by another team thats not as prestigious in fanbase.

Regi also released a vlog of what 'could' have happened, but his outrageous remarks of cheating seem to be overlooking his own team mates - he also implied all Koreans are cheats.... For that statement alone, Regi can go **** himself.

I don't think AZF should have to rematch.. I honestly believe that Riot should just not allow further matches to have potential cheating of this nature.

The alternative I've heard, is that Epik gaming is going to jump in AZF's place... Where Dyrus plays top..... If this is to go ahead, I'd be very angry at Riot.
