Before Dreamhack, Riot made it sound like the pause feature was unnecessary and could possibly even be abused. Aside from the obvious condition that you were horribly wrong then, why change that now? Why did you feel that way back then?
Basically, you said one thing at Dreamhack and got a team a loss for the trouble, but now you say "Oh, it's great for competitive play and makes the tournament more fair"
I'm all for the pause feature, but don't make it sound like you were always working toward the feature when you scoffed at it and criticized it in your biggest tournament to date. Some of us won't forget the "fantastic" management that that tournament had.
