It's become somewhat of a running joke for players to bring up the concern without making any effort to investigate the issue.
So people are getting made fun of for not realizing there is a delay. I find it hard to understand how people could not realize there is a 3 minute delay, so I can understand why this would be funny.
Should I make a thread making fun of people who think a 3 minute delay is sufficent to prevent any form of cheating? I find it hard to understand how people could not realize that knowing exactly when the enemies buffs are going to be respawning without having to ward or use clairvoyance, and knowing when all of their wards have expired is an advantage.
EDIT: And if you want to argue that no one will bother doing this, you realize that go4lol and other prized tournaments are held on the regular client, where there is no way to restrict spectating?
