    Deterministic Disaster Recovery Tool (aka Chronobreak) during NA LCS W4

    During the FlyQuest and Cloud 9 game in NA LCS Week W4, Riot utilized the Deterministic Disaster Recover Tool to successfully recreate the game and avoid the bug after FlyQuest was offered and accepted a remake.

    The game was remade then resumed at 10:20 game time before the buggy Miss Fortune ultimate was used.  This is the first time Riot has publicly referenced or used this tool.
