    Besides the fact that Riot should have a working save/LAN for tournaments at least.

    1.Yeah, her Q is flat delayed. You can drop a seed after the Q and still get the plant.

    2.There's a reason I said 'lesser extent' for Gragas/Orianna, but since they both still have "select target area, do damage on arrival" in their skill sets, I figured it technically counted.

    Urgot's grenade thing is distance delayed. It doesn't take as long to land if you aim it right next to you.

    No soundproof booths with restricted vision, and no LAN server to keep the bloody client running properly...Riot, that was just embarrassing.

    Also, I just tilted away like 200 Elo. Plat is a distant dream now.

    And now we have a whole controversy (fueled by TSM fanboyism) saying that Azubu cheated by looking at the mini-map. There are even pictures showing members of Azubu looking at it.

    They normally do bring LAN servers to events, but this time they were like "we are right next door to Riot HQ, let's use those LAN servers."

    How is it TSM fanboyism when not only do the screen-caps look pretty suspicious but when people are saying the same thing about WE vs CLG.EU?

    What's with people and the phrase "x fanboyism," anyways? Seriously, it's lame and sounds stupid. People could do better.

    Then what phase would you recommend? Favoritism? Nepotism? Fanboyism is the closest phase to my meaning that we have. If you don't like it then suggest an alternative.

    How is it favoritism whatsoever? Why does it matter what teams were involved? It's a pointless and bitter thing to bring up in the first place. The fact of the matter is that there are images that suggest that teams might have been abusing the spectator minimap, and that's nothing to disregard because you have some immature beef with TSM. These are the championship playoffs, and they deserved to be taken more seriously by the organizers than they have been.

    I'm gonna be honest, Riot's at fault for not having a way to stop them from tilting their head. I mean look at it, all you need to do is tilt your head a little and bam, mini-map. That's as bad as leaving the answers to an important test on the blackboard and being confused when people look up and see it.

    As people are scouring the VODs, more and more instances of teams looking at the minimap are cropping up, to the point that there's very little doubt that at least -some- teams looked. It's pretty unfortunate.

    My impression is that TSM fans, people upset about the "Asian invasion" (so called on the forums), and people upset about how day 3 was handled for other reasons all contributed to the furor, which is why WE vs. CLG.EU got dragged into things.

    Let me just point out that a large number of the images people cite are not actually drawn from the relevant time frames. People screencap anytime an Asian turns his head and claim he must be screenwatching. Moreover, I gather that the minimap screens were blacked out during the lvl 1 pause in TSM vs. Frost.

    However, the evidence from Frost vs. TSM is pretty blatant.

    The minimaps were blacked out, but there's footage of Azubu Woong fairly obviously looking at the minimap after the remake and the unpause. The fact that's possible at all just frustrates me because it reflects badly on the scene.

    I'm pretty sure if there had been penalties for Frost short of a DC, they would've still rolled TSM, so whatever. It's just a bit incompetent of Riot's eSports division that they let something as big as this be hurt by these series of events. If you're not willing/able to keep an eye on this and penalize pplayers for the things they've been seen doing (it's not even restricted to frost and we), you should just make it impossible for them to do those things at all, even if the crowd responds positively to the players being outside of booths.

    Edit: Oh, didn't notice you edited it.

    It ended with a restart as CLG.eu were going in for the kill. Then the internet of their section of LA crashed a bunch.

    The problem is that he -pinged- within 20 seconds, if the shot is to be believed.


    Also, I'm slightly depressed by NA's showing. They all got knocked out before the semi finals. What'll that do to the current meta?
