You had each teams' mini map screens angled towards the opposing team. What were you thinking?

That's like playing Battleship sideways.

I have no idea how that stage set up was given a green light, especially with 2 million dollars on the line.

I'm quessing someone at Riot didn't get the memo about LoL WC being a "serious competitive e-sports event".The stage seemed to be designed for a fun event,rather than a competitive one.

Other basic things they messed up on

Players were not in sound proof rooms
Sunset was shining directly at the players faces

I honestly have no idea why some of the teams didn't boycott because of that. I understand that money is a huge factor, but if you're going to be at a huge disadvantage from the get go, you need to make a statement that this isn't acceptable. All it would take is two or three threatening it for them to postpone it and fix these problems

We've been over this. We know. Riot knows.

PVC frame and some canvas would solve the wondering eyes for the rest of this tournament. Not sure how much sound is an issue since they're sitting a good 20 feet from each other with noise cancelling headphones on along with crowd noise.

Yeah, it worked. But... you overshot. It's now Friday, but in 201 BC. And your computer came with you; the Doctor dropped by and fixed the internet so it would work.

Yeah, I'm a little late, but it's just so mind-bogglingly ridiculous that I thought someone could shed some light on how this set up could've happened. My nerdy high-school Starcraft LAN 'parties' were more secure and private than that stage.
