RIOT: "So, instead of a full Disqualification, as would be expected in any other sporting event, in academia, in the working world, and in every other sensible establishment in existence, we'll just let this one slide and make you earn only 80% of the money you would normally win (which you might not have won at all without the whole cheating thing). We still cool Asia?" --- http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/7388/spectrumf.jpg

Do you honestly think that's what won it for them, and not TSM playing like crap that did it? --- Burn the heretic. Kill the mutant. Purge the unclean. Lol IGN- ThatKillerBenoit

If you've ever played in any tournament for money cheating in any form results in a DQ period. You may even be banned for life based on the severity of your actions. --- I don't always lose, but when I do it's purple sideu!!!

Uuuuuuuuuggghhhhhh. And here I thought Riot doing something would make you whiners just. Shut. Up. I really wish this would just die--easily the most irritating and boring topic on this bored but also the most recurring. Sigh. --- Zomg, Otachi too? BEST. ORGY. EVER. - Boldrin I've had enough of your disingenuous assertions!

Many sporting events don't DQ for cheating. Decisions are made with discretion, and not set completely in stone.
For example, in the UFC a number of fighters have cheated (whether by grabbing the fence, using illegal moves etc) and have only gotten warnings, or marks deducted.
This can be found in any sport. Any time you accidently kick someones leg in Soccer, you are breaking a rule of the sport, as another example.
20% (200,000$) is a large amount of money to be lost just for looking over your shoulder for a couple of seconds.
Yet it is reasonable, and understandable. Riot dealt with this issue very well. --- PSN: Darkestmerc Xbox 360 GT: Darkermerc

Dyrus cheated too. He even admitted it on his twitter... so its not just asians.
I'll ask you with mini maps behind you and $2M on the line.
