The setup is just unacceptable the players should be coming first. They need to be in booths, it's completely obvious that multiple teams are looking at the mini map and also the noise they can hear the crowd at points which hints at baron or a team creeping on another team. Unfair to the players.

TSM doesn't care about you, they are the MOST profitable team right now, and Reginald will do anything to keep it that way. It is all about the $$$ even if it means LYING to your FANS.


---------------
After Reginald calls out Frost for cheating Dyrus stupidly tweeted: http://imgur.com/Sp0ub "I just wanted to make this clear I did look at the minimap after being told they looked which means we'll restart anyways since lv1 is fked."

Anyone with basic comprehension can tell exactly what he was trying to say here: "I cheated after I heard they cheated. Game is restarting anyways."

Realizing his mistake, and probably after Reginald tore Dyrus a new one for the tweet, DYRUS DELETED THE TWEET.

THEN in order to save face, they LIE TO THE FANS saying it was a BLANK SCREEN.

PROOF THAT WAS A LIE:
The screen was not blacked out when TSM looked at it, as you can see here: http://bambuser.com/v/3036077 around 16:53:50
You can see Chaox(I think) and Dyrus looking at the minimap.

This was before the remake. However, both teams started exactly the same as before the pause except for reginald, who went to the left lane instead of the middle.

IN ADDITION TO THIS: http://i.imgur.com/GrYmr.png While without video/photo evidence, Reginald is CAUGHT WITHOUT HIS HEADSET and tries to quickly put back on.


Not only did TSM perform very POORLY, they also DESTROYED their reputation by blatantly LYING to their fans.

Will TSM continue to be the most profitable LoL team? That's up to you if you keep supporting them after lying to your face.

This is not about defending TSM.

Is about a team, any team, cheating and the company (Riot) not making a call about it.

The recognition of the mistake is always a good thing. I upvoted RedBeard

Important question for RedBeard:

Is Riot going to have Clg.Eu and WE replay the entire best of three?

The constant restarts was no doubt tolling on the players and it seems kind of unfair to have them just "accept" that the two complete games that were played will count towards the playoffs.

@RedBeard to be honest i still feel like there should be verifications made or something for the past game, especially as a lot of viewers have noticed some other cases, it's sad because in some way, the tournament lost a bit of it's credibility... still keep up the good work, can't wait for to see what is gonna come out of all this

I still find it hard to believe that riot won't do anything about the cheating that AF did, after the remake pinging them going up the lane because they had seen them doing it in the last game and then having jayce shoot them all with a q just to say FU we know ur there it completely ruined a strat TSM had been preparing for and were counting on.

RedBeard, Will CLG and WE play just the one game or will they play another best of 3?

Regarding stage setup - having the players in booths would make them less accessible to the crowd, which would make it less fun I assume. Personally I think the stage was set up pretty well apart from the fact that players could look up and see the opposite side's minimap.

I appreciate that the screens need to be high up so the crowd can see them, so re-positioning them lower may not be feasible. Perhaps move the player tables forward more in future? That way it should be REALLY obvious if they're trying to sneak a look, since players will have to look way up *and* turn their head way over their shoulder. No more 'turn to look at teammate, furtive glance at minimap'.

The only thing that worries me is that by having them on Wednesday, I won't be able to watch because I'll be in class. Still, these things happen and the open communication by Riot is really appreciated.

Dear Riot & General Discussion,

It's spelled "peeking."

Love,
