This is a clear defeat. Don't the rules say that if it's clear it will not be remaded? How can you justify this?

So as far as the CLG.EU vs WE matchup, what exactly is the plan?

Is there going to be a remake of the entire bo3? Is it just going to be the last game from the bo3?

Azubu still cheated imho.
TSM's core strategy is getting that early jungle invasion and snowballing, but Azubu Frost decided to look and MIRACULOUSLY SOMEHOW KNOW THAT ALL OF TSM WAS GOING TOP AND INVADING RED.
No rematch? I'm disappointed.

Really the placement of the screen was a stupid idea to start with.

One way this could of been completely prevented was to put big screens on the side where they could see the spectate screen.

Ether way, this was a bad design to start with.
Think I mentioned this earlier, but we will be putting up overhangs so the possibility of peaking is removed.

Wait, so screen looking was a valid enough reason that it was a factor in deciding to restart?

And the fact that you said "no FURTHER incidents of screen looking where witnessed" means there was in fact an incident noted, but you still did nothing about the visibility of the minimaps? Even though it was already shown during the pauses that the small minimaps above the teams could be blacked out? All I gotta say is lol 700 elo decision making.

Riot is likely not going to say any more on the AF or WE situations. Those are basically done for now. They are letting floor rulings stand.

Redbeard is there a time or way to contact you about a league for a school district?

Poor Riot. The play was so, so ridiculously good at times, better than any tournament I've personally seen. I'm really disappointed in the delay especially, I was really into all of the games, the play was smarter, crisper, and better than the tournaments I've seen, by a lot. They punished every bad dragon, every bad baron. And I don't even understand the team comp ideas that a lot of the teams were bringing out.

I'm just really disappointed in the tournament, because the production and technical issues really overshadowed the quality of play, which was insane, IMO.

Hey RedBeard! My question to you is, if these team accused of cheating, where actually cheating what will be the punishment for them?
