@Red beard: Thanks for clarifying what happened that day.

I know what happened that day was bad, but as a network engineer I do understand that these things happen and all we can do is to take actions that will prevent such incidents in future.

BUT i have one more clarification in this regard..... what was the decision taken about the ping(done by azubu frost) by at the top tier 2 tower of TSM right at the start of the game? if they pinged river/enemy blue or red buffs i can understand. but a 100% correct ping under fog of war so deep in to TSM teritory must look a bit shady right?? (im not whining about TSM losing since I support CLG.eu at the finals coz i love their grinding style of play :P)

thank you to all at Riot for keeping this awesome game going from strength to strength.

Idk if you've already answered this, but are any of the TSM / CLG games being replayed? 2 Million Dollars is a lot of money for some teams to have lost part of because of cheating.

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).
Sadly, he's right. The second player to the left of AF looked up whenever the game had shown up on the big screen, and pinged a few seconds later to let everyone on AF know that they were heading up top lane.

I thought that's why it always takes a few minutes between picks/bans and the game start...
Wrong. the normal observer mode delay is 3 min.
For tournaments and on the tournament server, the delay can get changed down to a min of around 2-3 sec (game server != oberserver server so a small delay will exist cause of the architecture they decided to use for safety)

This info is super helpful. Will miss the live audience for the final matches, but I'm looking forward to the good commentary.

Phreak and Rivington duo op. Jat does real well but 2nd tier. Deman is okay.

The finals will be played with the audience.
Only the WE vs CLG.EU game and the semi-finals won't have any.

rofl after the endless amount of riot bashing, riot makes one post and gets 650 thumbs up and that seems to be the end of it. Riot knows how to control their sheep.
