Dear Riot, Tell WCG to get it together or pull your game.

Riot has no control over a third party tournament, this has been stated. Maybe you should. If an organization as large and well known as WCG can't handle running a tournament of your game in a manner befitting your product, then make it your business. I understand that WCG represents a large business opportunity, but the manner in which this issue has been handled is anything but professional. I only suggest that in future dealings, Riot make it a point to review rules of the major tournaments in which their game will be played and possibly require some sort of influence in decisions and ruling made concerning LOL. WCG and other organizers may not like it, but LOL is popular enough that they won't have a choice. I hope all parties involved learn from this and can move forward to better this game that we all love.

With Matt Marcou at the head, do you really want Riot to have more influence in tournament decisions?

I agree, the buck stops with Riot, they should ensure that their game is not in the hands of incompetent organizations.

Sadly, name brand tournaments tend to have most of the power in these relationships.

Remember that HoN was bucking to get on WCG's list as well.

The difference between HoN and LoL is that LoL is much more popular and has far surpassed HoN on the Esports scene. Riot has much more leverage with LoL than HoN does. The fact that WCG chose LoL over HoN shows this.
