Let AF move on, and in the future ensure unfair play is no longer possible.
this is correct, we must give AF the benefit of the doubt and assume they did not cheat unless riot uncovers some new definitive evidence that objectively proves otherwise
suspicion and assumptions alone should not be grounds to DQ a team or drag a team that won back for a rematch. Just because we have a few screens and circumstantial evidence that "seem fishy" is not enough to assume a cheat since there are many explanations for what happened in those moments
it simply would not be fair, and it would be far worse to punish an innocent team for something that they did not do than to let a guilty team to move on, especially when it is not even clear what difference the peeking would have made even if
it actually occurred and even if
it was intentional. (both things that are incredibly unclear, even regi himself has put forward alternative explanations for what could have happened that this evidence does not disprove.)
a million dollars is on the line, there must be 100% definitive, objective, unbiased, and indisputable proof. AF does not have a history of shady acts, why are they not deserving of the benefit of the doubt from the NA community?
