I am not a TSM fan but I am extremely disappointed by the decision riot made on this.
Basically this.

Except all cheating teams. Set a standard. Zero tolerance.

So much this. If AZF wins, this season will forever be overshadowed by the fact that they cheated AND got to win. There is no honor in it.

The rules clearly stated that looking at the screens was illegal. All teams agreed to the rules prior to competing. All teams that violated the agreement should be removed from the competition. This is not a simple case of bad sportsmanship, this is a violation of rules.

My support for TSM just dropped.... (is a fan of CLG and TSM). And here I was rootin em on cause I thought they had good sportsmanship. Now I turn my attention 100% to CLG even if they didn't win.

So you can cheat as long as it only helps you a little bit? It is a dishonor to everyone at the tournament that Frost is still there. Beyond disappointed in riot, as usual.

I know this may have already been said, but maybe to prevent such incidents from happening, maybe the audience viewing screen could be in front of the players, so there is no temptation to see the screen and cheat. That or the teams can be put in "booths" or something similar, so their back regions are blocked, making it more difficult to look discreetly. Ive seen this work in a ESL game of Starcraft 2, where the players were placed in soundproof "boxes" so to speak, so maybe something similar to that for the team would work too? Its just a suggestion....

Oi, you ppl retarded or something? If you dont want them looking at the screens then dont put then where they can see em. Why make it more difficult then it should be?

I'm sorry but I have to comment here. These rule violation things are about the stupidest thing I've ever seen / heard of. Now personally I was not watching the streams but dude, wow... really, all of that seems extremely ****ing retarded. Sorry for my harsh language but really. I have a GREAT IDEA, why not, instead of putting the players of the game and communistic-ally forcing them to hold their heads forward looking at their monitor (what if they have to stretch?).

Why don't you spend 100$ more and build sight blocking walls between the players and the monitor's which show the game to the crowd.

This way.

1. Players can NOT see each others screens.
2. Crowd can still watch the guys gaming.
3. You're not anally raping their winning purse for moving their head left or right in a match. What if they just were turning their head to communicate with their buddy sitting next to them. So ****ing retarded.
