Just a question, but how can you congratulate someone on going to Korea one day. Then challenge them for more games later without looking questionable. Not to say that it isn't WCG's fault, but why even bring up the issue if you have already accepted defeat.

Obviously, Dignitas did not want to accept defeat, which leads to some questionable actions and why some people view them as "scumbags"


If you found out that it was supposed to be something other than it was would you challenge it? It's just as easy to believe that someone brought it up to Dig and they questioned it(after the original game), as it is that Dig complained their way into another set. It was confusing, bottom line, and that lies on WCG shoulders. This whole thing is depressing because it's all accusations on assumptions, and no one knows the 100% truth.

Edit: When it comes to something like this, don't just blindly downvote. Please participate in the discussion or reserve your up/down votes

Hi I'm participating in this discussion. Everyone involved in this reeks of filth. If Dignitas didn't instigate this nothing would have happened. But it's not just their fault. It's Marcou's fault and Rosenblatt's fault for being unable to interpret rules correctly.

I downvoted you.

No you absolutely challenge it. But the fact of the matter is this. The game never should have been played. That or Jatt shouldn't have played. That is the one single indisputable fact. All evidence points to a VERY favorable ruling towards Jatt being an eligible player after their own rules state is ineligible. Their explanation is laughable at best. One favorable ruling is a coincidence, two favorable rulings (in the same tournament) is a pattern. It is absolutely as much on Dignitas as it is on WCG. Both are at fault. Dignitas for playing an ineligible player and WCG for just being general screw heads.

I agree with you on the level that when it comes to your livelihood you make sure that the rules are what they are. I don't fault them for that. I fault them for blatantly breaking the rules, and WCG for blatantly allowing it. The simple fact of the matter is this, if this tournament was in any big name sport, American Football, Football, Rugby, whatever. It would be the biggest story out there right now. Also, this tournament would essentially be blacklisted.

TL;DR
Yes, WCG deserves the lion's share of the blame, you can't fault Dig for questioning rules, but they still deserve blame. The rules were present, Jatt broke them, WCG facilitated that. Everything after that deserves to be questioned, and we have as much right to question it as Dig did to question for another set.

I said in my original post that Jatt shouldn't have played and I agree with that. I guess in my mind you can't say something like "You can't fault Dig for questioning the rules" and then say they deserve blame. It seems like a contridition.

He's not faulting them for questioning rules, he's faulting them for playing Jatt.
