All players are told that they need to remain sitting, facing forward, and with headphones on at all times, including during pauses. I can personally confirm that no WE player looked at the minimap at any point during the match.

Players make eye contact on stage fairly regularly. Team WE in particular talked directly to each other a good amount. A single, limited camera view with a field of a few feet is not enough to determine where a someone is looking on a cross-stage scale. We directly monitor players to assure this is not the case, and maintained due diligence at all times over the course of the event.

Say what you like about WE's gameplay, but they did not jeopardize their chances of staying in the tournament by looking at the minimap (EDIT for clarity- because they didn't look at the minimap. If they had looked at the minimap, it would have jeopardized their standing in the tournament. I am not, in any way, condoning any player who gains an unfair advantage from any means).
just put blinders on them regardless if there is a chance they may cheat, better not to give anyone a chance to say that the winners may have cheated

There is some really blatant evidence out there that strongly suggests some of these teams were cheating off those overhead minimaps.

You guys really dropped the ball on this tournament.

In this video the member of WE looked to his left, this would in the direction AWAY from the big screen which shows the game.

All this can proved by the images you have here.
