Pretty sure the answer to that is no. The actual finals should still be on the 14th. I believe Riot intends to have an audience for the finals, and they've stated there won't be an audience for the semi+ CLG vs. WE.

Them replaying the entire tournament isn't really a possible situation, it would cost thousands if not millions of dollars to replay the entire tournament, and the amount of potential cheating in question didn't directly cause a change in the result of the game. The winners would have most likely won anyways, and the losers would have most likely lost. However cheating shouldn't go unpunished and I think that all teams that are caught cheating should be immediately disqualified from the tournament.

The Finals are the 13th not the 14th

Does he mean the conclusion of day 3's schedule, or the entire playoffs including the finals? It sounds like the latter to me, but I could be wrong.

Can you please not play dubstep between games?

Destroying an early game lead because you know to prevent it does DIRECTLY change the result of the game. In fact, any form of cheating DIRECTLY changes the results of any game.

The conclusion of the playoffs will take place on Wednesday the 10th, starting at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. We’re going to be broadcasting from the same venue our World Finals are taking place, the Galen Center, and the players will be competing in a backstage area while we set up the main stage for Saturday. Players will be separated with no visibility of the opposing team. Due to the quick turnaround, we unfortunately won’t be hosting a live audience.

We'll once again be streaming in free HD on both Twitch and Own3D, with the same broadcast production features (player cams, replays, etc.). Casters will remain the same for English, and we’re determining what other languages we’ll be providing.
Redbeard why would you guys ever pick a day and a time like this? Last weekend started at a kind of reasonable time, even though we had to pull all nighters to watch it completely.

5PM PST is 2AM in Europe, not to mention Asia, where it will be really early in the morning/going into a working day.

With this decision you made it impossible for any people outside of the American continent to watch these games. It's either starting in the middle of the night, or when people are at work. I understand it will always be inconvenient for either US, EUrope or Asia, but at least the times from last weekend were kind of reasonable (starting at 9pm in Europe). I know Riot isn't against Europe and what not, but you guys are making it pretty hard for us to not feel this way.

Why not opt for the same as last weekend? Why not start on Friday? And why not start at the same time as last weekend? You can easily do quarterfinal and 2 semis on Friday and the final on Saturday.

And what about the match between CLG EU and WE? It's 1-1 right now,m but don't you guys think it should be better to replay this match entirely (aka best of 3 again). Tis will be a conflip now. No more chance to get back when you're behind. This is a new day, new possibilities and I think this match should start from scratch.
