These hooks are getting ridiculous.

Team Dignitas vs. FlyQuest / NA LCS 2017 Spring - Week 5 / Post-Match DiscussionNA LCS 2017 SPRING
DIG STEALING BARON? DIG TAKING BARONS?? WHAT YEAR IS THIS ???
I'm the head of the League of Legends division at Penn State and would just like to thank CSL and Yahoo Esports for their time spent in writing articles for our situation. We as a club weren't consulted at all until news actually broke that the Big Ten League was happening and everyone in the club has been really disappointed. Unfortunate situation but I don't think there's much we can do now seeing as how the logistics and the scheduling have already been set in stone. Hopefully we can participate in the next season.
Remember SpectateFaker? Now SKT T1 is filing DMCAs on YouTube over IN-GAME REPLAY footage (NOT Twitch Streams highlights)
This is an edit proposed by /u/Goetheee. One of the mods offered to reapprove my post if I edited my original thread to his version so here it is!
Ever since SKT T1 has had it's League of Legends players stream on Twitch they have started to take down videos that include SKT T1 players (like Faker or Peanut). Which means if you're a content creator that happen to have one of the players playing in your video you have a high chance of getting a copyright strike, and if you get 3 of those your channels gets taken down.
HERE is clear evidence of what they are doing, claiming copyright of MONTHS OLD VIDEOS that they have NO right to do in the first place. One of the videos they copyright striked was from when Faker was in NA, which is over 3 MONTHS OLD.
How on earth were content creators supposed to know that SKT T1 were going to transfer to Twitch and then claim every single video where SKT T1 players are playing?
From what I've read and understood SKT T1 doesn't have the rights to DMCA a in-game replay footage because that's something Riot owns. However SKT staff that messaged me claims that Riot Games (and that's a quote):
officially stated that actions to gain profit by making video contents of any teams' players are prohibited.
Riot Games acknowledged that SKT T1 has the copyright over its players' spectate videos.
Is this true? Even in statement about SpectateFaker fiasco we can read that "DMCA issued by Azubu did not have a legal standing as we, not Azubu, own the gameplay content". There's also Riot's guideliness regarding use of their IP and they don't mention ANYTHING about using any players' or teams' in-game footage, names or photos. Did Riot Games hand over their copyright rights to SKT T1? If so, why didn't they say anything? I'm sure content creators would be fine with this but now they are at RISK of LOSING THEIR CHANNELS and INCOME for videos they created months ago.
HERE is a message a content creator received from the official worker for SKT. The person wrote:
Hello, this is *** who is in charge of SKT T1 Videos Copyrights. I am here to inform you about your illegal usages of SKT T1's copyrights.
Not only SKT T1's copyrights include its emblems and its players' photos, but also they include the players' highlight/montage videos, streams, and any other VODs related to SKT T1. Even the Riot Games, who has the control over fan-created League of Legends contents, officially stated that actions to gain profit by making video contents of any teams' players are prohibited. We already requested Riot Games copyright protection for all SKT T1's spectate videos. Also, Riot Games acknowledged that SKT T1 has the copyright over its players' spectate videos.
Moreover, your actions violate Republic of Korea's Right of Publicity and copyright laws. If you continue to create and upload more videos of SKT T1, we inform you that the law can take legal actions against your actions. Therefore, we ask you to delete the remaining videos of SKT T1's player. If you do not delete the video until this week, Riotgames will take action directly.
I have no problem with respecting SKT T1's request to not make any videos related to them even though such request alone is totally bullshit. (EDIT: And just because one of you guys called me out for this statement - it's the same situation as where you don't agree with ceratin law but you're still not gonna break it, right?) I just want to get clarification on this DMCA. Can some Rioter explain what's going on?
EDIT: I decided to respect SKT T1's request to keep their footage offline (as suggested by Riot) while still trying to fight the bullshit DMCA they filed. Thanks for your upvotes, advices and all the responses. After a night of reading, replying, dealing with the thread removal and all that stuff I'm tired and sort of over it. I'm done, and thank you!
This is pretty ridiculous. No way they own the data that is recorded during the game and can be played as a replay in the LoL client, as soon as one of their players is part of that game. That's really never ever happening. But I don't think you can do anything against it, because Riot have probably more important stuff to take care of.
Varus is not OP. It is lethality items that should be getting the nerfs.
Varus has remained relatively unchanged in the meta for quite some time. Everyone is crying how he is so OP and broken yet nothing has changed for him. Yeah, he got some buffs recently to his passive but that has no affect on his current state in the meta since no one is using him as an AA adc. Varus is meta now because lethality and its items are both OP. Especially after the buffs to the stat. Not only that, but the items all work pretty well with his kit taking away some of his obvious weaknesses like lack of mobility or squishiness, all with low active cooldowns.
Meddler has mentioned they are looking to nerf Varus and Edge of Night in 7.5 but why are you gonna nerf the champion and his items when Egde of Night is clearly one of the worst offenders in OP items right now. The way I see, Varus is gonna get nerfed to take him out of the meta. Then his core items will be nerfed to make him useless and unplayable. Then he will be forgotten and stay out of the meta until he gets reworked.
Sound familiar? That is exactly what happened to Sejuani with Cinderhulk. She has been out of the meta for long time and getting reworked this summer. I don't want Varus reworked. I don't want Varus to be the new Sejuani. His kit is fine and he is balanced. A good majority of the games I watch with him, he doesn't even do that great. He can't even solo carry like most of the broken champs can right now.
If anything, Riot should just hold out on nerfing Varus until they actually balance the lethality items and see how he does then. As a Varus main that has been playing him since season 4 with over half a million mastery points on him, I know that he is not the actual problem. I just want Riot to see that insead of getting all trigger happy on killing him.
TL;DR Varus was and still is balanced. It is lethality items that are making him seem OP. That is the real problem.
The Riot special
im so sorry
The most lucky Karthus, and an unlucky Cho'gath...
This ended my lane before it even started. He was aiming for me.
EDIT: Youtube Mirror thanks to /u/UncleCarry :
Ahhh the good ol' Karthus vs Chogath toplane, a classic matchup.
SKT Bang paying homage to his daddy C9 Sneaky
So when SKT said they are gonna have their players learn English, their plan was just to have them watch Sneaky all day to pick up all of his phrases; that's genius.
Gosu scripting Debunked!
So, I think most of us have seen the clip of Gosu "scripting" what i want to say is there is no mini map shown and I want everyone to go look at the video Gosu-8 where the clip was taken from. Look at the mini map it redirects him as soon as the trap is placed because it's viewed as terrain, you can see the line go red(Which is from him A-Clicking on Cait). What i'm saying is that Cait traps are indeed bugged and the traps were considered terrain for at least .25 seconds. I'm not saying i'm 100% correct but i'm 95% sure this is the case. Also to add on to this point he still is going to the spot he clicked on in the first place but was quickly redirected when the cait trap was placed for a small moment. If he had scripts on, an input would be needed and there was no input at all, he was still going in the same direction as he was previously till he clicked away.
For those who might wonder the play starts @ 0:38 the trap is placed around 0:45-0:46. make sure to watch it closely and even zoom into the mini map around that time.
Actually a new source was just posted on the main page, IT'S VERY LIKELY THAT BOTH the zyra seed and cait trap are counted as terrain right when they are placed even if it's for a small second.
https://youtu.be/smZLquvsI8E is the source proving that it DOES count as terrain. credit goes to~ /u/Leethere
THE BOY WONDER THE KID has sorta debunked this proving that it's more than possible that they counted as terrain
Edit: I agree that everyone has their side but this is what we have. You can make a case for both sides but in the case of law i believe there is more then enough shown that Gosu is not scripting. Is there a chance he is? Yes there is there is always a chance that someone is scripting but these clips have explained a lot. I think it's time we stop ragging on Gosu till Rito gives as answers on Gosu. I think it's okay to talk about but attacking Gosu when none of us are really 100% on this is not the right thing to do. My only problem is where is Gosu during all of this?
something we can keep track of is his LOLKING which is linked to the ID of the account.
it still seems to be up and running!
Edit2: If Gosu is scripting the Zyra clip is from December, It's In mid Feb now. He would've 100% been hit by a ban wave if he was scripting at that time frame. Just some food for thought.
Edit3: Doublelift saying sorry <3 er well kinda?
Edit4: From the main page that I'd like everyone to consider.
These types of posts always concern me because they are often wrong and usually have bad evidence but severely damage the players credibility regardless.
Edit5: Here is another video showing the small movement just randomly just like in the Zyra clip https://gfycat.com/SlightTinyCow

Edit6: This is my last edit since the damage is done, while watching other big streams it's pretty much scripting memes and talking about Gosu scripting... This is definitely gonna impact him in one way or another even if he didn't script he will now be meme'd into the ground as someone who has depression I hope all turns out well for him. This is just another note that we need to learn what we are doing, instead of straight out saying he scripted it could've been handled as a maybe instead of making it sound like it's 100%.
To be honest, the original thread felt more like an attack on gosu than a discussion. It's witchhunts likes this that ruins their day or career. Reading the comments, I can only imagine if I was Gosu and what I'd feel reading that shit. Way too many people jump to conclusions before further evidence and testing. On top of all this, fans that have followed Gosu for a long time know about the rough times he's gone through.
EDIT: PS Gosu if u read this, I love you, you're the reason I suck dick on Vayne
I like the direction this video went
