In TSM vs Azubu, that first ping was just ridiculously out of place and suspicious. If anything, they need to be disqualified. It doesn't even matter if TSM doesn't get through but Azubu pulling that stunt causes the whole tournament to lose all of its meaning.

What a joke. They need to fire whoever set up the stage to be like that.
Truly, that is a blatant error they let slide

The screen with the logo, isn't the one with the map on it.

We keep a constant watch on all the players on stage at all times. We have cameras as well as live people walking onto stage to keep tabs in everything. All players are told that they need to remain sitting, facing forward, and with headphones on at all times, including during pauses. I can personally confirm that no WE player looked at the minimap at any point during the match.

Players make eye contact on stage fairly regularly. Team WE in particular talked directly to each other a good amount. A single, limited camera view with a field of a few feet is not enough to determine where a someone is looking on a cross-stage scale. We directly monitor players to assure this is not the case, and maintained due diligence at all times over the course of the event.

Say what you like about WE's gameplay, but they did not jeopardize their chances of staying in the tournament by looking at the minimap (EDIT for clarity- because they didn't look at the minimap. If they had looked at the minimap, it would have jeopardized their standing in the tournament. I am not, in any way, condoning any player who gains an unfair advantage from any means).
I agree with this just alot of fanboys crying cause their team lost i wouldnt even bother responding to them. Thanks for ur response tho wasnt necessary.

step 1 : look at minimap
step 2: ping the spot
step 3: send 2 to stop theyre invade while u invade urself
step 4: hope that random kids on forums backs you up by making pointless comments (COUGH COUGH RIOT EMPLOYEE))

Go ARAM for a final, get disqualified. Cheat in a championship, progress to the next round.

Imo, Riot needs to take some time, look over all of the evidence provided, do their own investigation and then talk to the teams accused of cheating. When they show the proof they have compiled to the teams/managers and have confessions from the teams whether or not they cheated then Riot can come to a conclusion of to DQ or not DQ.

All in all this seems shady, but, a million dollars is on the line. Though, I thought the top twelve teams in the WORLD would have some respect for their fans. The people who SUPPORT them want them to play fair and WIN because they played better than the others.
