League of Legends players banned for jerkiness
Riot has banned two more League of Legends pros for excessively adolescent behavior. Last December the company sent Christian “IWillDominate” Rivera packing, and now Illyas “enVision” Hartsema and Damien “Linak” Lorthios are joining him in exile.
Both players will be banned from both this weekend’s LCS Season 3 Qualifier and LCS play next year according to the ruling on Riot’s forums. enVision has been reported in a whopping 29% of his matches, which PC Gamer says is six times more than the average EU LoL player. He has also been punished 18 times, including two account bans, throughout his LoL history.
Linak boasts a 20% report rate and, like enVision, has a peak harassment score in the worst .06% of all EU accounts.
Grow a pair or mute the guy. Seriously annoying when people expect perfect conduct in a competitive context. That’s like expecting football players to not talk trash to the other team…it’s a part of the gameplay…a tactic. Also, everyone who plays league must be over the age of 13, so why should things be kept at a PG level? This reminds me of the idiots who required kids’ papers to be graded with blue ink instead of red. -.- Call me insensitive but I think these people are TOO sensitive. Don’t play a competitive game expecting hugs when you fail at it.
