TSM let them off the hook by failing to advance from Group D over the weekend, but the Inven user plans to follow through with the promise anyway.
In a post Saturday on the Inven’s League of Legends forum — the day TSM was eliminated from the tournament — the user wrote that they will be “cleaning the river anyways,” and further explained that they always planned to do the good deed regardless of TSM’s finish. The user also promised to provide visual evidence in the coming weeks to prove they actually went through with it.
At the time of the pledge, it appeared TSM had a good chance to get out of its group for the first time since 2014. But after a 2-1 opening week of the group stage, TSM lost two of its three matches in the second week and lost a tiebreaker match to Misfits, thwarting TSM’s playoff hopes for the third year in a row.
In true Inven fashion, there were a number of comedic responses to the user’s renewed pledge, the most popular of which was someone who asked the poster to “forget about the Han River and clean up TSM’s jungle,” to which the original user replied “not even I can make that happen.”
