"Lee Chen ‏@MLGLee
*To be clear here folks, the Collusion had nothing to do with the ARAM. CRS/DIG conspired to split prize money."

What happened in the Finals was, Curse asked Dignitas to let them win so they (Curse) get a better seeding at the regionals. In return, Curse would split the prize money with Dignitas. Also the reason why they played ARAM in the finals, the result didn't matter.


****ing ******** if you ask me, okay the ARAM was fun and laughs, maybe a bit borderline but okay. It was a Bo5 anyway. BUT just plotting on the outcome of the tourney beforehand is incredibly disrespectful and SO uncompetitive, I can't really believe that either team agreed to that. That's simply outrageous.
One thing for sure, I couldn't care less about either teams now. Way to **** up.

I think that it's an ok thing to do, it's their game. On the other hand I do think that one has to have rules to avoid blackmailing and other stuff. This is e.g. done well by the Magic the Gathering competitions. The rules state that you can split the money, but not for a result (bribing).

so in this case they could play aram, as long as they don't ask "let us win".They could very easily ask for a split in money though.
I'm back!

I have to agree with you. Play the game because you love it, not for the money...

To clarify: The ARAM was within the rules.

Dignitas let Curse win. Intentionally. That was, obviously, against the rules and a very cheap move.

Only I find this absolutely legit? I know I might be idiot in eyes of few of you guys, but I think it's absolutely fine, happens in NASCAR, happens in almost every sport. If both teams agree, what's the problem? Should they just lose it on SR in normal game and pretend that nothing happened? It's just their thing, I don't get why organizers get butthurt over it.
