Dustin Beck, the vice president of eSport, has talked about the investigations that Riot Games has been conducting into allegations of cheating during the League of Legends Season Two Playoffs.
He stated on the company’s official forums that, “We are re-examining photos, videos and renders of the stage layout to definitively understand sight lines between the players on-stage and the minimaps overhead. We’re taking it a step further moving forward to completely ensure the screens aren’t visible to players.”
He added, “Forward-facing camera angles can be misleading and we want to make sure everyone has the full picture before drawing any conclusions. This is something that we believe requires a comprehensive investigation but we absolutely understand why it’s cause for alarm.”
The MOBA-based competition is one of the most important eSport events in the gaming world, with the winner of the finals set to get a prize of 1 million dollars (770,000 Euros).
