I mean with all the negative going on here the one plus I noticed as a player at the venue is that a lot of people just walking by were asking what it was and what the game was about etc, felt nice trying to explain what it was and what it was about. I for one would love to see more venues like this for future stuff.

Redbeard, don`t you think the cheating is unfair for the teams that lost to the cheating asians? Not just TSM, also CLG.eu, Najin Sword, iG, everyone who lost to people who cheat, were screwed out of a chance at the 1 million dollar prize pool. Not because they were bested, but because of YOUR failure to prevent cheating.


Doesn't that weigh on your conscience? Even a little bit? How do you sleep at night?

Peeking... peaking is reaching the highest point.

Can't trust you with spelling, can't trust you with the world championships.

I thought the headphones the players were wearing were soundproof? If they aren't then you should take into consideration the reason why the player's head would turn in response to a cheering crowd. When this happened, the crowd was cheering because a ward had died, the WE player didn't understand and probably though the other team was going for an early baron and looked over at the minimap.

I hope you take this into consideration as you continue your investigation.

I like how hard you guys are trying to remedy all of these situations.

With so much money on the line i find it a tad odd that no one thought this kind of stuff could occur. Whoever did your stage planning should definitely be looked at, as i would hope it wasn't simply thrown together to where things could shift out of gear so quickly

Those two things are ones all other tournaments, with less hype and smaller prize pools, prepare for. There have already been issues more than a year ago of power outages, and internet outages. Those tournaments, going forward, took measures against them. Why hadn't Riot?

Have back up video cards, headphones, microphones. This is basic redundancy. It sounds like you had nothing at all, for anyone. One set of everything. You were hoping it didn't rain, too.

too bad it doesn't work taht way. having a backup connection doesn't work, it would take some time for it to connect and take over. and thats if it could pick up where the disconnect happened. Backup generators take time to kick over as well. i'm sure they had spare computers. but again, would take time to set them all up.

Redbeard what do you have to say about that announcer telling all of us we don't matter.

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.
You're stretching way too much the meaning of RiotBeard's words. Basically the restart completely nullifies any accusation of cheating you have against AF, since all the times they "looked" at the mini-mat were during the pause, making it an actual blind ping. No further incidents means just that: nothing else worth mentioning.
They restarted just to be sure, as a precaution method, not due to the blatant cheating you guys believe there was.
