RedBeard, just out of curiosity who is the president of eSports? You seem to be the common face we see.

It's extremely unfortunate for the EU crowd who are watching. They are such dedicated and loyal fans, and we get that 5pm PT is not great for the EU. This is actually the earliest we are able to get the matches up and running, as we don't have venue access yet to begin the setup, and we obviously need to ensure that there is a very high quality bar for the production, so this is the earliest possible time we are able to get the matches going.

thanks for the updates
We don't have a specific time that we will be making any further announcements on this topic. I can assure you we are taking this very seriously, and we will make an announcement as soon as we have final information here.

Hi RedBeard,

Thanks for this update; just one clarification please

the playoff on 10th Wednesday 5pm PDT will be the final CLG.EU vs W.E game? and then 2 semi-final matches? or will the semi-final matches be played on a different date?

1.Questions regarding the matches for Wednesday. Is the CLG.Eu vs WE match just going to be the final third game of their BO3 or is it a whole new BO3?
2. Is the match on Wednesday just CLG.Eu vs WE or is it the rest of the Day 3 matches as well?

Seperate question from the matches, do you happen to know if the replays for these games will be in 720p as the other matches are on youtube? There is a degradation in quality due to the transcoding downgrade in quality from 1080p to 720p.

Thanks in advance and thank you for everything your doing to make LoL E-sports awesome for all of us in the community.

Yeah, this fast answer proves u guys are really caring about us, the fans, but its just pitty for us the final is even planned much later, so at the end of the finals it would be 7am for us, hope i can stay awake :-)

Redbeard, I hope you guys don't DQ AzubuFrost

They played well and deserve where they are, whether they looked at the minimap or not.

i think that going forward, it'd be better to just make it so that looking is impossible for players. Its' just too late to do anything about it, since the games were already played and there was a winner and a loser. I'm kind of saying this, because I want to see Azubu play the winner of WE/CLG.Eu which will be good games.

Also want to see Azubu vs M5 in the finals.

Potentially 7 matches beginning at 5pm? Hmm if CLG.EU wins vs WE we could be looking at having the games go past midnight.

The games will be plenty of hype, we have 5 of the World's best teams ready to face off, the matches should provide plenty of hype and excitement. I know i personally can't wait.
Maybe since you won't have the audience to listen to, we can have the player audio instead?

I mean, I know CLG.EU can do a good rendition of Eye of the Tiger.
