Not completely true. SK Gaming in WCG were payed too. CLG won then however. Though the SK gaming site isn't nearly as big as MSI.

...WHAT?
Alright, this is clearly a group of friends, or at LEAST gamerfriends, who were just good enough to be picked up by a sponsor >.> that does not mean this was a victory for big corporations, or anything of that sort. It means that a group of "people who worked hard from their homes" did well enough to get a sponsorship AND win.

Wow what a rippoff all season riot's been saying it was a $100000 tournament. Now frantic only gets 10000 a man having to share with the losers? What a sham. The commentators even said stuff like 100k at stake when it never was. Can't wait for dota 2 tourneys doubt LoL will have bigger prize next year

Bah, Shame eh?

Guess its up to us to train even harder and win next year! (now, Riot, are we REALLY going to have to wait tell DoTA2 before we get new maps?!)

It was pretty sad the teams I go for lost (EG and PCFC), but Fnatic fought really hard, they deserved it. Looking forward to season 2 and other good competitions like this. GG ;D
