Quote from popcorn on the 9th of December 2009:
i think your all missing landaxes point. the mental state going into the second round is obviously going to change no matter what the rules say about playing on.
Even though it only killed one person and made no difference apart from one ticket directly, qmX will then have the mindset as if they have been cheated by it.
In the middle of a game it's hard to grasp the multitude of what the arty breach has done and therefore you would not play the same from then on.
tbh fray may have or have not won without the arty breach but imo it's a shit decision by admins when there is no way to clearly say it had no real impact on the outcome
We were under the mindset we had instantly lost after Dawson started qq'ing over global when the arty happened. But we were told we had to see the match out to the end, so we decided to give the second round our best effort.
You might say we had the worse sided mindset, as Qmx knew they had won, and we knew we had lost, but we pushed on, and then after rules were read in finer detail, we emerged victorious.
