Not the same thing. In UFC guys only tap out when 1 sec more of fight means that you go unconscious or break your leg/arm. They never tap in 3rd/5th round because they lost all the rounds(like CLG ans SK did). It's called being a pro. CLG and SK are just kids playing games

All inhibitors up, all inhibitor turrets up, still calls surrender.

...why?

And winners let their opponents choke them to death? In all seriousness there is no shame in knowing when its time to give up.

All constantly fighting does knowing full well you can't just shows your either stubborn or scared to admit defeat.

Try claiming that when you are participating in the martial arts, or even more so Judo scene. I'm sure you would rather break that arm or leg rather then tap out and continue training to become even better. Also consider team morale in such situations, and this one.

This bothered me too. I've won games where I had all three inhibitors down for half an hour and just turtled for the win. It doesn't happen much, but it can happen.

Why are people comparing martial arts to LoL in this way? If you don't tap-out in MMA you either blackout (scary as hell if not particularly deadly) or you risk serious injury to a joint or limb.

The only thing that can get hurt in a LoL match is feelings/pride.

There is absolutely no correlation in E-sports and Physical sports when it comes to surrendering.

If a team feels it has been defeated in E-sports it is perfectly acceptable to issue a surrender. It is done in Starcraft and other DotA's across the board because dragging these games out proves wasteful for all parties involved. Imagine if in Starcraft they waited until every single building in their base was destroyed and every probe\scv\drone is tracked down to stop making buildings. It would take forever! Imagine if every team in League\DotA\HoN dragged out a game all the way until the nexus was destroyed by merely delaying defeat by turtling in base. This results in a significant amount of time wasted for no reason. Not only does it help tournament organizers to stay on their schedule with surrendering but it helps the players from having to exert themselves needlessly in a game that they've already admitted defeat in their hearts. If the team feels they have lost, they have the right to surrender the game to the rightful winner. There IS a difference between having a couple of deaths and calling "gg". But when you've been outplayed back to your nexus, the other team has more XP, more items, more map control, and more gold in their pocket you can honestly admit defeat to the other team because they have outplayed you in every aspect of the game you're playing.
