Regarding Thoorin's video (and other fake news lol)
The whole point of the TSM discord messages to our fans was to show that we DID try for these big roster moves. We did not approach the players directly, 100% went through management. The buyout that we offered was to Clutch and Shalke, not to the players themselves. And I felt ok talking about these incidents since they are really far in the past (Clutch is no longer even in the LCS anymore.) At any point if there were any issues teams would have reported TSM to Riot. In both incidents, the past ones and the most recent trade, we worked with the teams and Riot to make sure everything is above board.
