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.

there biggest mistake for this and all lan events in not having a lan version of the server so they aren't reliant on the internets

The only proof to this matter would be if someone takes a pic in the players perspective as to whether they can ABSOLUTELY see the mini map clearly. Because if you take into consideration the mini maps were not angled in such a way that the players can see it clearly just by tilting their heads slightly towards one side for example this pic:http://imgur.com/BKAWK this pic doesn't show that the mini-maps are tilted at an angle that the teams can visibly see within the so called 2 seconds they look at it. Also a normal person's range of view (regardless how far) can't truly see the details on that kind of mini-map clearly and be able to make decisions off of what they see in those 2 seconds or so.

On a personal note I was rooting for NaJin Sword, but alas they lost. But that's neither here nor there.
