Seems like you all @Riot have alot on your hands. Hope you all make a swift fair & honorable decision.
You guys have an AMAZING thing going, and there will be bumps on this path to great success. Times like this will define your character and integrity.

Goodluck with your decision Riot.

so once again, Matt avoided answering any questions or shoulder any of the blame for a bad decision.

Add in that all the games with Dignitas should be NULL and VOID because of Jatt's participation and you sir have failed as an E-Sports relations/manager whatever it is you think you do.
this. What the hell is your job when you don't even pay enough attention to the tournament to see that no team has been played best of three, and how can it possibly be misconstrued that Jatt should not be allowed TWO CHANCES in a tournament because he happens to have dual citizenship. This is the most clear-cut case of scumbaggery, and it has gone unanswered. This is inexcusable. there is no possible logical reason why jatt should get this kind of second chance just because of citizenship, and is blatantly wrong. How the hell can you justify this?

Jatt should get DQ from this WCG and CDE should not have to replay their matches. Matt Marcou should step down from his position because he is not handling this the way it should be handled. I love Riot and love LOL competitive play, but Riot has dropped the ball twice and should publicly make an apology to CDE and the entire LOL community.

why wasnt Canada's qualifiers done in the same way?

WCG is a load of bull****, I hope that you do not EVER let them use your game in a tournament again Riot because after this defamation of your name and your game, well, you know, its your company.

If they meant to be consistent with the best of 3 sets format, then why didn't they redo the Canada Finals? They only continued the USA Finals.

Frustration over this event can be attributed entirely to poor communication of the tournament rules:

As many of you have observed, the rules posted on the official WCG website were inconsistent with the way the WCG was running the qualifiers. The consistent ruleset for online WCG tournaments is a double elimination, best of three sets format, and the entire event was run in this fashion. The officially posted rules on the WCGs website incorrectly stated the rules for this event as best of three games. This was the primary reason for the confusion.

Riot works with a variety of eSports organizations, but we do not administer or have oversight of third party tournaments. When players raised this situation to our attention, we consulted with the WCG in an attempt to understand and clarify the situation.

We are still investigating the situation as you know, this is fairly complex and there are a lot of moving parts, and we want to make sure we have the full story before commenting further. We have requested the WCG clarify the situation and their rules further, and well continue to keep you posted.

We know this hasnt been a great experience for fans of competitive League of Legends. Were not happy about it either, and were sorry its taken us a while to communicate to you on this subject.
Why are you creating more backlash with these vague presidential type responses? Step up and take charge of the situation for gods sake. You can start by disqualifying jatt, who you are clearly quite good friends with, for being in clear violation of the rules.
