well i have posted this multiple times but here it goes again::

here's the original video from the start of the shot everyone is referring to - http://ko.twitch.tv/riotgames/b/33453*7601?t=5h32m41s

but watch from the exact same shot prior to the pause - http://ko.twitch.tv/riotgames/b/33453*7601?t=5h05m00s

you will notice in both video sequences that AF ping the same area. before pause AF is NOT looking towards the screen...

this is PROOF that he's NOT looking at the screen or cheating, it's just pure coincidence he tilted his body after the pause... but the 2 pings b4 / after pause is evidence of no wrong doing

So RedBeard, Azubu Frost did not cheat at all at the start of game one?

guys GUYS. Don't forget that this is not just RIOT's tourney, we're the audience too and we're a big part of it. They're having problems so instead of kicking them while they're down and pointing fingers let's bring it in and remember we're all here for the same reason. Everyone come together and e-hug for RIOT.

We know you at RIOT will work hard to do your best for us! *e-hug*

Thank you for informing us on what is going on. I know Riot will use this as a learning experience so that when we look back a year from now we can all make jokes about the infamous day 3 fail of the season 2 playoffs.

Hey just in response to the WE allegations.

Why would the player in question look to the screens, (and away from the crowd), if responding to loud noises and cheering?
Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't they facing the stage? In what way was the player responding to the crowd noises by facing the wrong way.

Some clear, honest feedback. Whether you agree with OP is up to you, but I'd say this's exactly the type of communication we wanted

So, If after the investigation you find that one of the teams was cheating, then how will you proceed since the TSM/Azubu match is already over?

@Redbeard - I have to say up until when the games went down I thought the back end programming stuff was exceptional. I'm no programmer, but the instant replays, seeing reactions of players during a major fight, etc. seem like it would be incredibly difficult to pull off in real time. You all put on a hell of a production for the first two days.

However, league seems to have a lot of problems more than other major games. As nice as the bells and whistles are on the broadcast (believe me they are nice), when will a restart feature be available and when will a LAN feature be available? It seems to me that whomever has it in for riot games will just keep doing this in all major events until those two features are deployed. It's a shame too because it hurts the fans, the players, and you all especially. But these are features that other games have for major events so when can we expect you to have these ready?

I can't be the only one tired of seeing this pointless, empty statement repeated after every time Riot f-cks up on something.
