I can assure you that the cheating that happened and was pretty obvious to everyone watching on stream and to people at the venue and was easily avoided by simply putting the teams in booths like EVERY OTHER E-SPORT, didn't happen, because that would make the company I work for look really bad and I don't want that to happen. Just trust me. Please.
I am appalled by Riot's inability to think this through and have a good set up for THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS. You make MILLIONS you noobs. L2BOOTH. Even if cheating didn't happen (which I think it did), but even if it didn't, people THINK that it did and your integrity and the integrity of the event is called into question because of it.
You try to compare yourself to the NFL in all your videos and stuff when talking about LoL as an e-sport. Well take a page from their book if you want to be taken seriously. They used replacement referees for 3 weeks of the regular season this year. It turned off the fans because it called into question the integrity of the competition between the teams. The same thing is happening here. You didn't use booths. It now seems that teams had the ability to cheat and they probably did in the eyes of the fans. It DOESN'T MATTER if YOU tell US they didn't. It just seems you are covering your own ***.
Take a page from the NFL book. Admit you were wrong for not utilitizing booths for all the teams at the world championships and for not having a secure LAN to play the event on and move on. Change. Be better in the future because of this travesty. Because whether or not cheating happened, (which many people believe it did) it appeared to your viewers that it did take place and you DID NOTHING to protect the competition from the accusation that cheating occurred. (i.e. using soundproof/enclosed booths) Having YOUR employee say "please trust me, no cheating happened, I pinky swear" means nothing. Seriously, RIOT PLS.
