"The games will be streaming live in free HD on both Twitch and Own3D, with the same production quality and broadcast features (player cams, replays, interviews, etc.) that you saw up until we ran into technical difficulties. A full list of foreign language streams is still to be determined."
"there will be no live audience for the rest of the playoffs unfortunately. But we will be producing the broadcast similar to our LA Live event, so will look great online for all the fans. We will be announcing an official schedule shortly."
Riot came with a compensation for the trouble at LA :
"We know the issues during the World Playoffs yesterday sucked. It was frustrating for everyone watching at home, and we feel that frustration. We’re taking everything we’ve learned from yesterday to make the conclusion of the Playoffs and the World Finals next Saturday as great as they can possibly be.
As a token of our thanks for your tremendous patience and dedication, we’re going to be giving out double IP for 48 hours, starting 11:59pm PDT on Friday, October 19.
We extended the duration of the boost and moved it out a week to ensure smooth log-in queues and more convenient play times.
Details on the conclusion of the playoffs are coming together and will be announced in the near future. Thanks for understanding!"
Cheating During Playoffs ?
here’s a quick overview of the two primary minimap incidents we’ve been reviewing:
-- Azubu Frost had a microphone issue that didn’t allow them to communicate during the opening of the game. As a result, the game was paused.
-- It was noticed that both teams had players that were shifting their bodies during the pause. Blanket warnings were issued to both Azubu Frost & TSM.
-- Referees decided to issue a restart, as a) Reginald & Chaox had concerns about screen looking and b) Azubu’s communications disadvantage could reasonably be
interpreted as requiring a restart under tournament rules.
-- No further incidents of screen-looking were witnessed during this match.
Team WE/CLG.eu game
-- A player from Team WE was not facing forward for a moment during the 3rd and final restarted game before we wrapped for the night.
-- We’ve reviewed the existing footage and firsthand accounts from our referees, and we believe the player’s head turn may have been in response to a loud vuvuzela and
crowd cheering. We haven’t found conclusive evidence either way and are continuing to investigate.
