"Question to you: getting an extra red buff at the beginning is enough to win a game? How much advantage does it give? Is it more than, lets say making a hard foul against the best player of the other team and hurting him? Because, you know, the latter does not disqualify a team in any sport I know..."
Actually, normal fouls are built into basketball, with limits and even bonuses depending on their nature. But if one were to "make a hard foul against the best player of the other team and hurt(ing) him" one would recieve a penalty much worse than a simple foul. Usually disqualification from the game on grounds of a violent action. Hence Shaq not consistently collecting teeth from the bulls in the 90s.
From the NBA "Even if provoked, NBA players are expected to act as professionals on the court and contain their anger. Players who participate in violent behavior of any kind face ejection from the game"
Screen peeking isnt a "foul", it is outline as full cheating in the guidelines. And while at most levels a first blood and red buff doesnt guaranteeing a game, at this level of play, as shown in AF's next set against CLG.eu does have a pretty decent snowball effect. Like toplane first blood turning into top lane 3/0 in about 2 minutes.
I honestly think TSM is a **** team, and didnt even close to deserve to win, but I also think AZF should have been removed for their actions. Sadly, riot doesnt value their game enough to actually punish the things that cheapen it. Whether AZF needed it or not, cheating guaranteed them way more money than they were fined JUST FROM ADVANCING TO THE NEXT ROUND, not to mention the further chance at 250k to a million. So put on the big boy pants, learn some rules, then talk.
