Why are the seedings changed, what evidence would cause you to completely throw out your seeding? Ruins the entire thing.

Dreamhack qualifiers represent those that are at the pinnacle of skill in their region. Seeding is a matter of perception and regardless of seed a team must prove they are a top three team to attend the finals; this includes who they play in the first round.

We stand by our seeding but acknowledge your concern, again this decision has nothing to do with TSM or CLG, integrity in eSports is a paramount concern.
Why would anyone want to support an eSport game that changes brackets to avoid a potential throw. This is so dumb, how do you know that they will actually throw the game? Im sure the players of EG would die to go to dreamhack so why would they throw the game.. this is stupid stupid stupid stupid.

Riot certainly isnt doing themselves any favors with a quick knee-jerk decision. Nor are they doing any favors for to the eSports community. You dont change how a tournament works because you heard a rumor. If there is a question/concern with a member of the team, why not remove said player instead of changing the seeding order of a tournment? And Hotshot has another point, this doesnt solve anything...they could still face off in the finals and again this situation could come up when $100,000 is on the line and Riot is in the lime light. You dont want that happening if you want League of Legends to be taken seriously as competitive game world wide.

Just my $.02 on situation.
