good to hear RedBeard & btw good handling with the players on saturday with all the DC issues - u did a gr8 job!

im sure Riot is doing this, but i want to make sure the footage prior to the pause is also looked at. i noticed there's a ping in the same area in that sequence, so my belief that it's just coincidence they ping a 2nd time in the same area after the pause and when Woong supposedly looks at the mini map... this is conclusive evidence to me and should be considered...

Just to clarify, it's game 3 of CLG EU vs. WE on Wednesday, right?

What kind of actions are on the table? Rematch, TSM gets an additional spot, each member of TSM gets an additional consolation prize, the whole world knows Azubu F used an underhanded maneuver? Not sure what Riot can do for justice if it comes down to it.

Is there any chance AF getting DQ'ed if it is concluded they looked at minimap and pinged? How would that impact World finals schedule?

As you can see on different images and videos, the team fight involved Irelia activating GA's passive, Ryze having 1/4th hp same as Nocturne, Janna with 3/4ths hp and corki with full hp (all that from WE), while Cho gath, malphite and orianna were full hp, sona had 3/4ths and ezreal had 1/3rd (and still had GA). To sum it all up, almost everyone would think that the fight was about to be won by CLGEU, something that would've ended the game as well. However something bad happened and the game went off. Many people think that's unfair, including myself based on the facts presented.

So the thing right now is that a match is yet to be played, and the only thing that comes into my mind is: what would happen if CLG.EU loses? I would personally find it very unfair, and I as well think that in case it happens, something would be needed to be done.

What are Riot's plans regarding this? I would like to hear a specific answer, and not just a "we would look forward to prevent that from happening on Season 3", because this is an issue that is happening now, not in a year from now.

Greetings.

P.S. Dont take this as a hate post, I just want to get a clear answer, and don't think I'm rising any pitchfork or anything :P.

I got the info from there btw.
I'm quoting myself, now that I've seen RedBeard is around again. Would really appreciate an answer.

Cheers.

They will have to book hotels and flights for earlier that expected. I appreciate you answering all these questions and informing us what is going on.
We actually planned on keeping all of the pro teams (players, managers, etc.) here past the World Finals as they have been part of the World Championship, so we extended them the invite for the whole ~2 weeks. We already took care of their flights, hotels, and food so there is not much disruption here. I think some of them are actually at Universal Studios today.

Thank you! I was just wondering how this was affecting them.
