Riot suspends two LCS players for "extremely toxic behaviour"

League of Legends Player Mithy

Riot have suspended two League of Legends players until the end of the year following an investigation of “extremely toxic behaviour”. Both players, Nukeduck and Mithy, are former players of popular team, Ninjas in Pyjamas, who will now need to replace them to continue playing in the Challenger Series.

Mithy (Alfonso Aguirre Rodriguez) and Nukeduck (Erlend Holm) have both been reported in over 30% of the games they’ve played, with the majority being for offensive language and verbal abuse. Mithy was also caught leaving the game early over 30 times, putting his harassment score in the top 1% in all of the EUW.

Both players have repeated history of bad behaviour, resulting in fines and in-game chat restriction. Riot commented on how both players have “shown no improvement” even with these previous infractions.

It’s no surprise that Milty and Nukeduck were again found guilty, according to section 9.2.9 of the CS ruleset:

“A Team Member may not engage in any activity which is deemed by the LCS to be immoral, disgraceful, or contrary to the conventional standards of proper ethical behavior.”

Their penalties are suspension from both the League Championship Series and the Challenger Series until the end of 2014. This will leave their team, Ninjas in Pyjamas, with two players to replace if they want to continue their matches.

"I must agree I didn't have the best behaviour so the the ban is deserved."

I'm assuming there's an ongoing competition among Riot's employees to see who can squeeze the word "toxic" into the most public statements.

And I'm sure Riot definitely won't unban later, not like they've ever done that before...

Sorry to be picky, but it does say suspension until the end of 2014 rather than ban. Unless Riot have reneged on suspensions before too, in which case it's no wonder they aren't taking any notice.

Yeah I know, it just eats away at Riot trying to enforce stuff if they've changed their minds later on previously.

I'm actually not sure whether Riot have ended suspensions early, if they've done it for bans it wouldn't surprise me though.
