Well anyway, cheating is against rules. They should've been kicked from the tournament, not fined. They've only been fined 20% of their winnings, so they still have $120,000 to be shared around, plus the fact they are in the next round.

Whether it had an impact on the final result, cheating is cheating.

As if it's not Riot's (or whoever designed the stage) shear stupidity that put the screen where players could see it in the first place. It really boggles my mind that something so large, both literally and metaphorically, could be missed in a professional tournament. Not one person said, "Hey... maybe this isn't a good idea... And here's why..."

To be fair, an outdoor venue is pleasant and really the only thing they needed was that overhang.

They knew it was possible Supernova1332, so they told the contestants they must be facing forward at all times, but that was rather stupid, and thankfully they realize that. I don't know how the final stage will be set up, was still in construction when it was in the background of the semifinals, but it shouldn't be set up in such a way again.

Grimdark bluexy is referring to thread merging, locking, etc.

Even the pros get desperate by the sounds of things. I remember when me and 3 friends were playing together, 2 on each team, and the twins were playing next to eachother on opposite teams, one screen cheated and saw I was in the bush about to jump them. So they fired a lux ez ult at me and I died ...

Not gonna stop them. They've still got 80% winnings. The only way they can truly stop cheating is by kicking them out of the tournament.

Well, I don't know how much these people make a year outside tourney prize winnings, but $30000/5 is a good chunk of money if their only income is from these tourneys.

Alot of income comes from streaming, though I don't know how much they stream or earn from it.

Not sure why they'd issue a fine and not a re-match, God knows how important level one is, and they got their advantage from that.
