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 can personally confirm that you ****ed up. Time to man up and admit your mistake and make things right.

I don't understand.
Well then lets clear it up for you.
  • OP presents evidence of players looking at the minimaps during the games. -> gets upvotes

  • Riot replies that it didn't happen.
    People see that it happen so this seems wierd and inaccurate. -> gets downvotes

  • Riot later creates a thread about it and admits that players were watching the minimaps. So this riot reply was in fact inaccurate, just like people suspected. -> OP gets more upvotes, Riot post get more downvotes.
And here we are.

Referees are human, they can make mistakes. They did. It's alright though, the whole setup made it so easy to cheat that it's not really the referee's fault in the first place.

Everyone, PLEASE stop complaining. No will know if the World Elite player really cheated or not. The only person who would know is the accussed person himself. I will not take sides in this debate, just let Riot deal with this problem in their own way and just move on.

You can thumbs me down all you want, I don't care but PLEASE stop complaining. You've made your point, we get it. Now we can just move on and focus on how we can become better LOL players.

GJ RedBeard. I'm glad to see no cheating happened in those matches. So, apparently Woong has psychic powers because he managed to ping TSM just outside of their top lane when the game had restarted. Now that's what I call game sense, am I right?

Man, its too bad that Riot derives so little profit from League. If they just had an extra $100 on hand, they could have bought some plywood to build booths for the teams to play in and prevent any possibility of players seeing info that they shouldn't.

Strange, too, that the venue didn't have any kind of screen or curtain that Riot could have rented to fulfill the same purpose. Because, you know, that's usually an option.



Then again, in a much more likely scenario, maybe Riot just sucks out loud at planning.
