-They aren't in the same ballpark. Such a huge gap in metagaming, team coordination, and outright skill shouldn't exist in the semi finals of a world tournament, but it did. They could have played another 10 matches, and AZF would have still come out on top. I'd have bet an assload of money on it. We're talking Dream Team at the 1992 Olympics here.
To say TSM were cheated out of anything beyond an honorable defeat is beyond asinine.
The thing is, TSM did not deliberately violate rules for the express purpose of gaining an advantage over their competition.
In fact, they indicated the reason for the test was to determine if it was possible to cheat in that way, and they waited for a referee to state that the game had concluded.
That is basically the definition of "good faith".
Frost on the other hand secretly violated the rules for the direct purpose of gaining an advantage to win a game, during the game.
" TSM Chaox said that he had witnessed a member of AzF looking at the venue screens during the game. Referees didn’t independently corroborate these allegations.
TSM Dyrus looked back and up at the venue screens."
After the restart
, Frost was caught with hard evidence looking at the enemy minimap.
Are people really saying they should disqualify TSM for both reporting cheating to the referees, and confirming the possibility of their reports at a time when the game wasn't even being played?
