"Take your complaits to WCG" is a total BS copout.

You guys really need to communicate with us, the community, better on these issues. Your head of eSports has disappeared after playing a significant part in all of this. Now it seems that you guys have realized you can't sweep this under the rug so you're trying to shift blame. Regardless, injustices occurred and it seems like nothing will be done to right them.


Well, to be fair he did make a Q&A thread, it just got hate spammed, downvoted to hell, and closed.

If Riot has no say in the tournament WHY did Marcou give Jatt the ability to play in USA finals after he played in the Canadian finals. The rules state... you can only compete in one or you are banned from the tournament until next year. Rules done, over, Jattt banned. GG

Oh wait...

Yes, I too believe this situation needs to be more transparent in order to diffuse the rage from some part of the community.

I dont understand why Riot Games or CDE have not filed a formal complaint to WCG in korea over
ESPORTSERVICES, LLC. for running a tournament whose validity can not be confirmed.

But that's the problem, even that statement entirely diffuses blame to them. Why didn't Riot exercise more control over a major tournament? Seeing as how the execution of the tournament reflects on Riot as a company, shouldn't it be someone's job to ensure these things run smoothly?


IEM, MLG, ESWC, WCG +WCG Grand Finals, ESWC, and so on, are all tournaments and series run by companies who assume responsibility for the running of the tournaments they stick their name on. Riot does have an eSports department, but from what I see, the job of the eSports department is to help these companies who run events such as WCG get acclimated to LoL, (maybe) sponsor their prize pool, organize tech support for the event as well as they can, and reach/getting LoL involved in these major competitions. The actual obligation to run the tournament smoothly rests with the company who organized it and plans on running it (in this particular case, WCG and affiliates).

There's absolutely no reason why it should reflect on Riot as a company considering they didn't write the rules and WCG, by simply hosting the tournament, took responsibility for the outcome. The only reason Riot is in the blame here is because they were the first to respond to the incident (see: Matt Marcou on SotL). I'm not saying Riot is entirely pure--they've had their hiccups such as the Season 1 Finals at Dreamhack in June. That's an event they took responsibility in running, and it arguably went rather poorly. But this time around... Nope.

It's almost similar to a scenario where someone blames Spalding for the NBA delay this year. They make the basketball, but the NBA runs the game.

If you guys want to see results, file a formal complain with the WCG tournament committee in Korea
