I dont think blaming Nip for not refusing to play is fair since it's an important RMR match for the major and the players had to make the decision themselves. I don't think any team could have refused to play if they were in the same situation. Both teams wanted to postpone or fix the issue. It was both Flashpoints decision to let the game be played and Flashpoints decision for the rematch.
I don't see how this is anyones fault other than Flashpoint, the match should have been postponed. So now we have a shitfest where nothing is the right answer. All the hate should be directed towards flashpoint. This major shitstorm they created, they should never hold an RMR tournament ever again. Nip were ready to play lower bracket and its unfair to credit the players pushing for a rematch because they wented their anger on twitter after the game like anyone would have done.
Letting the result stand is unfair
Doing a rematch is unfair
People have a point about Nip getting a rematch makes it seem like they had a free chance and it's not fair but if pensioner snax and his team get to the major on a win against the favorited team lets be honest, that had a massive handicap beyond their control and in the TO's control then that wouldn't be fair either. So fans and keyboard warriors on both sides are more or less right.
Considering Nip almost won with a handicap I would consider that it might be the lesser evil of the two to have a rematch. The better team should win and it would be more fair than letting this go on imho. Then again it's true that Nip might not have had a good read on Anonymos playstyle before and now they do. So it's not ideal at all, but then again Trashpoint got us here and made all the decisions.
If Nip stomp Anonymo I think it's clear they would have won that first bo3 without the lags. However if it's a close game then I think it's clear that it was the wrong decision.
So maybe like Trashpoint could decide the 3rd map if possible and one that neither team have good winrates on and that wasn't played last match.
Or that Nip has to win 2-0 to prove they were the better team. So if they win 2-1 Anonymo still take the official win. That could have been an ok compromise to even out this second chance a bit.
Speculating if the same would have been done for Anonymo is pointless, it doesn't make this situation any better or worse. But I understand the heartbreak and bias of the Polish fans, I miss VP too. And I would have accepted the match not being replayed either. I think this could be interesting though, if we get to see them play again and Anonymo gets absolutely trashed 2-0 like they got in the first map then I think that is an ok conclusion to this shitstorm. But if Anonymo lose a close game then there will be further outrage and controversy. And then I think Nip really should request to play the lower bracket or Trashpoint make the result of the rematch invalid while apologizing to both teams and accepting responsibility. So it remains to be seen how this will play out.
