Glad to know that you guys are looking into the AZF/TSM cheating case.

I doubt riot is just lying to us when they say they are looking into this, many players are concerned and it is a matter of much controversy. This event means alot to riot and there is nothing to suggest that they will sit on any opportunity to exercise the most diligence possible. Its not fair to say riot is not being serious about this. Keep in mind that riot once gave their approval to a decision to DQ both finalists for an event rendering the entire thing without a winner. You don't think that was an unpopular, inconvenient decision that made the event look bad?
I was under the impression that the crs/dig DQ had a lot to do with MLG and not entirely up to Riot. Besides, Reginald has already stated there will be no rematch but gave us no further information, which leads me to believe that Riot has already come to some decision but has not told us due to damage control. They want to do it right before the matches so people don't have as much time to stew over the decision and want to let people think they are working on this a lot more than they actually are so people feel they are very invested in our concerns(you can see the positive effect this is having on community attitudes towards Riot here and elsewhere). Both benefit them greatly, which is why I think it would make sense for them to do so.

Now that the upcoming "Game 5" is back tomorrow, I've dedicated a compilation of Ward Kills of CLGeu-WE series.

What about the ping at level 1 when Azubu pinged TSM early? Was that an accident or something?

Hi RedBeard.

Off topic, but I wrote a message yesterday which you responded to and I believe you took it the wrong way. I made a joke at the end of my post about you posting all day, and I believe it came across as me having a go at you. Just wanted to clarify that I was more impressed at a VP putting in the effort than anything. Can't have you thinking we don't appreciate the effort your putting in

I also believe that reginald was likely told that riot has determined that there will not be a rematch. That statement did not seem like mere speculation on what he thought would likely happen.

like i said in your quote i think that riot has essentially made their decision but they are refusing to truly put their foot down until there is absolutely no more time to wait for evidence. It can be argued reasonably as you are doing that this is a PR move but I think it has more to do with riot's comitment to take this event as seriously as possible. It is not unreasonable for them to assume that nothing will come up to change their mind but why be hasty and not allow the possibility of this to happen? This is what I think they are doing. In the meantime however riot has got to proceed with the tournament. This is why they let reginald know "as of now there will be no rematch" I feel as though riot is able to do this while at the same time continue to seek out and wait for more evidence that might change everything

tl;dr: riot is very sure that there is not a basis for a rematch or a DQ, but they are holding off on making this final and are continuing to investigate just in case something comes up.

Keep up the awesome work RedBeard we look forward to watching the semifinals tomorrow!
This was my initial impression.
