This is why Riot will succeed as a E Sport. They investigate these types of issues and actually lay down fair punishments. Love it.

The game would pause, and they would get info from a person spectating over skype. Remember, these are online, not onsite tournaments, so the setting is completely different.

Awesome, now next time a "All girls competitive team" thread pops up, I can be like "I remember the last time I read about a female involved at the competitive scene..."

There is but that's what the pause was for...

So lets say live game is @ 20:00 mins... and a pause happens...

The spectator is now @ 17:00 and since shes on skype she knows the game paused @ 20:00 and is still on pause.

The pause doesn't stop the game.. so if the game is on pause for 3 mins... the game is now @ 23:00 and the spectator mode is @ 20 mins.. which is where the pause happened... so now the game is at a stand still on both screens(live @ 23:00 and spectator @ 20:00) and the players are at the same spots on both screen...

She then tells them where everything is.. and they unpause the game.


Edit: to be clear... I know the "game" timer does not move while the game is paused. However the logistics of how the 3 mins delay works is that it shows you what the live game has exactly 3 mins previous... which includes the pause time. So in my scenario above... @ the 23 min mark the live game has been on pause for 3 mins... the live screen will show "Pause time remaining: 27:00" and the 3 min delay spectator mode will just be getting to "Pause time: 30:00" and since no one has moved during that pause period... both screen will show the players in the same exact spots.. the only difference is live will show "Pause time remaining: 27:00" and the 3 min delay will show "Pause time remaining: 30:00" and there is your "3 min delay" that is supposed to stop ghosting.

Someone mentioned this on Reddit, and I'm now really curious if Riot will implement it, in light of this:

Is it possible to have the spectator client pause as soon as the actual game is paused? As in, the spectator pause is 3 minutes behind, and doesn't start until the game is unpaused (and passes over the paused section like it didn't exist).

No ban for blatent cheating yet tribunal churns out bans for telling bad players their bad etc.

God that is just so backwards...
