No, but sound acoustics are more complex than that.

Outside? No. He wasn't distracted by some noise.

Jesus Christ.

He had been casting for 8 hours when he said that, he was tired. I'm sure you have never said anything stupid before when tired. It's not like he meant it to be offensive.

Yes, outside. Surrounded by metal, thousands of people, air pressure, wind, and much more. Just because it is outside does not mean their is no effect on the sound.

Just wanted to show my support for Riot, the teams who participated, the casters, as well as the live audience who had to endure that!

It ain't at all nice or easy to get past such a thing like this, with all these accusations that are flying about, but I think you've already proved that you guys will learn from this and try not to let this happen in the future.

You still have a fan

why did you decide to leave them visible, instruct players not to look, then do nothing when they did?

TSM/Azubu game

  • Azubu Frost had a microphone issue that didn’t allow them to communicate during the opening of the game. As a result, the game was paused.
  • It was noticed that both teams had players that were shifting their bodies during the pause. Blanket warnings were issued to both Azubu Frost & TSM.
  • Referees decided to issue a restart, as a) Reginald & Chaox had concerns about screen looking and b) Azubu’s communications disadvantage could reasonably be interpreted as requiring a restart under tournament rules.
  • No further incidents of screen-looking were witnessed during this match.

Team WE/CLG.eu game

  • A player from Team WE was not facing forward for a moment during the 3rd and final restarted game before we wrapped for the night.
  • We’ve reviewed the existing footage and firsthand accounts from our referees, and we believe the player’s head turn may have been in response to a loud vuvuzela and crowd cheering. We haven’t found conclusive evidence either way and are continuing to investigate.

Those are the primary incidents that have been reported, but we are also investigating other alleged instances. More importantly, we are taking steps to completely ensure the screens are not visible to players at the conclusion of the Playoffs and Finals.

...

Thanks,

So TSM and Azubu watched the minimap. TSM mentions this to the staff to probably gain a restart. So there is everything all right till the restart.
But then Riot says there were no further incidents, while there is the incident right at the start of the remade game with AF looking at the screen again.

It seems that Riot completely ignored the main incident here, saying there were no further incidents reported.

You know what would be cool and probably smooth this over with the community? Free Champion+Skin like you guys did with Alistar and Tristana, except this time it should be that sweet new Riven skin you guys were making for the people at the tournament.
