World Playoffs resume on Wednesday, October 10th

Riot's VP of eSports, Dustin Beck, just posted:
"I previously announced we'd be conducting a new best of 3 between Team WE and CLG.eu. However, given new feedback and considerations, as well as conversations with both teams, we've reversed that decision. WE and CLG will be concluding the one remaining game of their best of 3 match on Wednesday."
After a horrendous Saturday, Riot Games has set a date to play out the rest of the World Playoffs. Dustin 'RiotRedBeard' Beck posted on the forums last night that the conclusion of the playoffs will take place on Wednesday the 10th, starting at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. The tournament will be broadcasted from the same venue where the Grand Finals will take place, The Galen Center on the campus of the University of Southern California. Riot is taking cheating into account with the setup for the rest of the playoffs since Beck said, "Players will be separated with no visibility of the opposing team."
The rest of the playoffs will be:
- Last game between CLG EU and World Elite
- Taipei Assassins vs Moscow Five
- Azubu Frost vs Winner of CLG EU/World Elite
The three matches will make for a late night for Europe and all of North America. Beck acknowledged the less than convenient time for the playing of the Quarters and Semi-Finals in another post on the forums: "This is actually the earliest we are able to get the matches up and running, as we don't have venue access yet to begin the setup, and we obviously need to ensure that there is a very high quality bar for the production, so this is the earliest possible time we are able to get the matches going."
Hopefully, Riot has alleviated all of the issues that happened at LA Live on Saturday.
Tune in here to watch the rest of the Playoffs!
