RedBeard -In the future, instead of having djWHEAT come out and be the "bad guy" and announce that the games were canceled for the day. You or another Riot employee should of of manned up and took the stage to make the announcement. It looks better that way since it shows you are not hiding from your "mistakes". Granted the "mistake" was not really in your hands.

For the love of god redo the set for CLG and WE please. Coming from an ex professional who has attended WCG 7 times for his country, you MUST do this.

Do you not feel that some of the actions taken by Azu warrant a replaying of their match now that teams could have time to plan?

The strategy prepared and practiced by TSM clearly hinged on an ambush which either through a blunder by riot or a dishonest action by Azu seemed to have completely revealed to the enemy team what TSM's plan was.
This directly led to a large early game advantage, which statistically has shown to win a very large percentage of highly competitive games. In fact a gold lead of as little as 10% is the deciding factor in the vast majority of tournament games.

Thanks.
Hopefully General Discussion will return to the way it was and certain TSM fans will disperse.

I am still calling BS on this, but its good to hear from one of the Staff's about this matter.
Really the placement of the screen was a stupid idea to start with.

One way this could of been completely prevented was to put big screens on the side where they could see the spectate screen.

Ether way, this was a bad design to start with.

  • Referees decided to issue a restart, as a) Reginald & Chaox had concerns about screen looking and b) Azubu’s communications disadvantage could reasonably be interpreted as requiring a restart under tournament rules.
  • No further incidents of screen-looking were witnessed during this match.

What was Riots reason for not putting the teams in booths where they could not see the screen? This problem doesn't seem that hard to have planned ahead for.
