Keep up the good work Redbeard.
I dont think he's REALLY accusing him of that. I think he's just mad about it, and wants a better response about it.

Again as I've said before it's pretty sick that this type of thing did not have a very clear, explicit punishment policy. I feel like they're handling the cheating allegations on the backfoot which is not a good thing. They should have been prepared for it... when money is on the line, people will do a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g (not that screen looking is really that surprising anyway).

Again, we are still working on this. We hope to have a post later tonight, but if not it will be tomorrow that we outline this, and at the very least, the rulings will be issued prior to the Wednesday matches.

Thanks for your patience everyone, we have our hands full with the reviews, with the extra matches on Wednesday that we obviously weren't planning on, and then of course the World Finals setup.

We should have been prepared for it, you are right. We have solutions so this will not happen again.

We have some team audio when we do the replays, but we don't give access to the full team audio.

Keep up the good work Redbeard.

Also Are the full matches goin to be posted before the finals, as myself and many american fans will be working until after the conclusion of many games we would like to see. Even if i know the outcome i love to see how it happened :-).
Thanks

We are trying to keep up with all of the VODs and post them for everyone to watch

So Redbeard, if a different region made a ruckus about an NA or EU team possibly cheating, would Riot take their allegations seriously and do an investigation, or is that a privilege granted only to the NA teams/forums?

P.S. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. ASAP would be nice, with perhaps a post like "catch up on games you missed" followed by links etc? I'm honestly surprised you guys haven't done that already.


btw, what will be going on saturday before the game? I was going to have a 'super bowl' party but now I see the first game doesn't even start until pretty late here (EST) so it'll be...weird. I was hoping the semifinals would be on the same day and it'd be more of an afternoon thing, back when I planned it (before official schedule was released.)

In the future do you guys think you could plan it a bit better for such things? I can't be the only one having people over to watch.
