in their finals brave man At the press conference following the 2022 Match of Champions, XSET coach Don “Siiko” Muir stated that XSET did not request a last round replay against FunPlus Phoenix in the lower bracket match.
In today’s lower bracket match, the EU FPX and NA XSET ran into a bug where the Killjoy tower was facing the wrong direction, causing the XSET player to face the wrong direction.
Riot decided that the glitch was bad enough to force a replay of the final round.
In the post-match press conference, Siiko clarified that the choice to take Killjoy’s mistake into account and replay the final round of the match was not his decision. Dot Esports reached out to Riot for comment, and Riot confirmed that their decision was to replay the round.
“At no time, at any time, under any circumstances do we request to repeat this tour. This was 100 percent Riot’s decision, I hope they release a statement clarifying that,” Siiko said.
“I don’t think it’s fair for players to get hate from Twitter or this other team. It’s not even remotely what we asked for, so we’re glad Riot clearly noted the mistake and allowed us to replay the round and make the match fair, but like I said, I don’t want anyone to think it was a grape bitter. . And what we ask for. “
After the match, the players were preparing for their post-match conferences when Riot pulled the players back, telling them they would play the last round again. When the teams sat down to play again, XSET won the replay, taking the match to overtime, but ultimately lost in 30 rounds. The time between the end of the match and Riot’s announcement to replay the round was just over an hour.
FPX’s Kyrylo “ANGE1” Karasov Said He Didn’t Believe It brave man The round had to be repeated because it ruined the competitive integrity.
“I think it’s a very bad situation, so I’m very angry about it. I don’t think I should [have been] Repeated only due to a turret defect. It’s not our fault. We should not get involved in this,” said ANGE1.
“I think it’s obvious to anyone watching that this mistake is no big deal and, in my opinion, it ruined competitive integrity.”
Because FPX won in overtime, the match score remains the same, but with a few extra rounds. They will continue the tournament again and then play DRX, while the XSET tournament ends.
