Would it be possible to sell a limited number of tickets at the door? A portion of seats are held by scalpers who have little interest in actually attending the event. Additionally, those who are willing to pay scalpers the extra buck (not me) are not guaranteed that the tickets are genuine, which could make things very complicated for them. I bought a Day 2 Playoffs ticket at the door and thoroughly enjoyed the day; halfway through the event I was informed that the event oversold, but it still seemed like everyone had a great time anyways despite crowded paths and Rioters trying to free up as many chairs as possible. Making a conservative estimate of the amount of empty seats and selling them would make me (and other ticketseekers) very happy!

This WILL NOT be a problem at our World Finals. We are going to extreme lengths to ensure there will not be a rescheduling.

Hey RedBeard,

I've got a couple of questions/suggestions.

1) Why not have a private intranet setup for LAN events such as this? Wouldn't it be much more secure if each of the clients were just looking for a local server as opposed to going over the internet?

2) What about a DR server? Has Riot thought about putting best high-availability DRP practices in place? Things like redundant NICs, dual-live servers, etc.

I'm eagerly anticipating Wednesday and Saturday's games! All the power to you guys and my thoughts are with you!

RedBeard.

1) I know you've heard about an LAN, but is there any future for it?

2) Will TSM issue be resolved, and what is the most likely resolution? Or will AZF be DQ'ed?

Thanks.

Im tired of tsm fanboys crying 'they cheated! DQ them!'.
The scene is noy that simple. If riot DQ azf, what must be the regulation they violated?
that is 'facing towards during match including paused'
If riot dq azf they need to investgate whether every team has violated that rule.
And tsm violated that rule obviously. Well some kids are saying thats because to check if minimap really can be seen bla bla but so what?
For Whatever bull**** reason dyrus and chaox saw minimap and they must got information in minimap! WTF?
There can be other excuses like that for every single violating.
You cannot turning into your head to your friends during test just because to check whether your friends is cheating.
Dq azf for breaking rule? Ok i agree. But Then tsm should be DQed as well including any other teams turning their head during the match.

The AZF issue is a tough one. I honestly cannot see them being DQ'd but I can see something like an infraction wherein their opponents get to choose which side they want OR if they want first/last pick.

This surprised me to be honest. It shouldn't be hard to pack up and deploy a single server across a network of 10-20 computers to run the game via LAN.

It's probably been suggested a million times, why not just replay the best of three between TSM and AF ? It would clear up any discrepancies between teams. My bet is that'l result in aloooooot of legal issues....being a two million prize pool and all.

Good job Mr redbeard. I appreciate all the updates. To be quite honest all the accusations and evidence is quite exciting. You probably don't feel the same.

Cheers anyway, GLHF

a reduction or elimination of their prize money would be more likely than an awkward handicap if riot decides that there was an infraction, and it calls for a penalty rather than a DQ

personally i do not think there is enough for even that, but riot has much better tools to investigate this matter than we do, we will see what they decide
