===Sverige - Latvija semifinal controversy===
 
 
The semifinal match between Swedish and Latvian national teams raised rather intense conference discussions about it. The Swedish national team, trailing late in the game 1 - 2, got the lucky equaliser goal in the 90th minute and later went on to win in extra time. Almost immediately after the end of regular match time, many conference users started reporting that this match had been reported to them somewhat strangely - the other semifinal had already ended, while the Swedish - Latvian one still went on, and after about half a minute, a Swedish equalizer was announced, sending the match into extra time. This led to "conspiracy theories" about HT-Team manually altering the match and its outcome to prevent Sweden from being eliminated from tournament. However, the accusations of any unfair actions taken to affect the usual match simulation were immediately denied by HT officials, and next day, an announcement was made to clarify what exactly happened at the match (see [[#whenmatchends|When exactly does a match end?]] below).
