This is bull****..... why shouldn't they talk about strategy during a pause? If both teams do it then how is it unfair in any way?

What the phuck? A top-tier championship series match gets paused, what exactly do you expect them to talk about? The weather? Dumb rule. Really dumb.

ULT!"). You get to sit there and say you go in like this, watch out for this, i'll swing this way while he does this and you force him to do this. When one team gets their **** together the other team has probably 4 of 5 people on the same page at best while the fifth is explaining the issue and working to get it fixed.
Decisions were meant to be made on the fly, challenging your decision making skills, your awareness in real time. In a pause not even the spectator's camera can move. The game wasn't ment to have a pause in it, the pause only exists on tournament games for the sake of competitive play. A pause allows you to gain additional time to assess the situation and formulate a plan, in and of itself is a flaw born out of the pause. An unavoidable one due to imperfect technology, human error, etc. By forbidding a team to strategize and coordinate during this time means that although an individual has gathered more information, their communication skills will still be put to the test.

It is a competitive scene. If no actions were to be taken after so many warnings then LoL would be looked down upon by other games, and serious people who believe fairness is serious business.

honestly though if it was me i'd probably hit their runes + masteries for whats left of the season, maybe even a bit into the next. Probably like only 25 avaliable mastery points or X ammount of runes or only tier 2 runes etc.

Both Teams should be allowed to talk during a pause. Who the Hell Cares. Regardless of teams chatting they both have looked and have changed decisions based on whats going on. They havent said it yet but as soon as the game starts they will call different shots than they would have. Don't like GGU but this is seriously a crybaby rule.

It's funny how in pro sports they can call infractions so simply, without any law-like jibber jabber, then you get into a much less lucrative and important esport and they talk like judge dredd bustin on dem slo-mo dealers

He'll to add to that, in pro sports teams talk during commercial breaks. They're even offered time outs. Why does everyone seem so butt hurt??

I think it would be worth it to break this rule in an intense match. Missing out on a ban doesn't mean much, especially when they only got this punishment one time for multiple offences. Riot might have to increase the punishment if teams decide to take advantage of how irrelevant it is right now.

IMO this rule is kinda dumb. I know pauses can be abused, but at least give us the context of the conversation. Its kinda hard to stop a conversation when you're in the middle of it.

at least the punishment was not overboard.( I am not a ggu fanboy either)

GO CURSE

They have limited time-outs, which are considered a part of the game. In LoL people could just unplug their mouse and pause any time they want a minute to discuss what they do next.
