@Redbeard, Are you planning to make ruling on your investigations before Wednesday the 10th? It seems a bit important to finalize the ruling before competition continues.

its very classy that riot has allowed all of the teams to stay for the duration of the tournament

they all have worked very hard to get here and it'd be a shame if the early eliminations were forced to pack it up and go home, they should enjoy themselves, they've earned it!

So what happens if AF did cheat?? Do they get DQed or rematch?

I've been following competitive league since it started taking off a long time ago. MOST of the important tournaments have been set at a time easy to manage for europe and quite unfortunate for us. and by most, i mean the vast majority of tournaments that actually mattered. FINALLY a tournament on my time, haha.

if i remember correctly, the season one championship days STARTED at 1am for me.

Good guy Riot keeping it's top athletes happy.
BTW, we really didn't need compensation for the difficulties with the tourney. But thanks anyway!

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.
Give Phreak lots of energy drinks, he'll be the hype.
Remember to tell him to cheer when wards are killed. ;p

Bring TSM back for a rematch against Frost.
Will increase hype tenfolds. Doesn't affect the progression of brackets.
So why rematch rather than DQing Frost? Because honestly, I think they're more skilled than TSM (fanboy here). But TSM deserves to at least lose fairly, 1 million dollar was on the line for them.

If you conclude Frost cheated that is.
