Thank you. My battle here is done. Good day sir!

it seems pretty obvious the AZF most likely cheated
that said, when Thierry Henry cheated to get France into the WC finals over Ireland it still counted.
When Maradona did the hand of god move it counted as well. These things happen in professional events whether they are sports or e-sports
Occasionally teams get shafted. It sucks but you just need to move on.

As for the 1 game versus 3 games, knowing Riot there is a good chance they consulted with the two teams in question to make that decision.
There really is no point in trying to dump on them. Glitches and mistakes happen, move on.

That said I think that a double IP day was a super weak response. They could have done better than that. Assuming someone wasted the 8 hours tuning into those matches, conning them into spamming games all day to make up for time lost really does not do much.

Really Riot?? Your'e just letting AZF get away with cheating vs TSM??? No penaltly at all for cheating at the World Finals Championship with a $2MILLION prize pool?!??!!? LAME.


So basically, if my team is losing game 2, all I have to do is look at the minimap and cheat, so it restarts and my team can win next game. I call complete Bull ****.

That's just great. Not only did I waste an entire saturday last weekend trying to watch the CLG vs WE match but now I don't even get to see the remainder of the playoffs at all because it's during the week.. you know.. the week.. when people have to work.. sigh.

Both teams were informed and on board with this decision, and they are preparing accordingly.
what happened to this redbeard? I thought it was going to be a new best of 3. you said it yourself

Riot, on EUW the equivalent topic is getting downvoted to hell, since once again you've listed an American timezone ("pacific time") over there without listing what that is in European timezones.
Please, please make it a standard practice for each "announcements" post that includes a date and time to also include a link like:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldcloc...1010T17&p1=137
so people can easily look up start times in their timezone.

edit: argh! that stupid "outgoing link" forum bug! replace each "&" in the resulting URL by an "&".
