Lol, what a joke. They've ALREADY MADE 150,000 dollars, and you're fining them 30,000? Oh darn, now they only receive 120,000 dollars to go on to the finals, which could have been lost to them if TSM's state of mind hadn't been destroyed by the cheating.
If you don't think level 1 battles set the tone, look at the latest TPA vs M5 game. First blood with Taric flash stun, and Vayne DESTROYED the rest of the game as a result. If level 1 fights didn't determine games, then every single pro team wouldn't constantly be devising new ways to win them, now would they?
Like I predicted in the initial thread with Redbeard, a simple slap on the wrist. Pathetic. In this one ruling I have lost half of my respect, if not all of it, for Riot as a company.
