Entire League of Legends Team Disqualified from Championship Series
Riot continues to ban pro-gamers with negative attitudes from League of Legends, this time banning a team of players from competing in a Championship Series qualifying event in Poland due to “toxic behavior.”
Three players on Team Solo Mebdi, Khaled Abusagr, Nicolaj Jensen and Simon Näslund, were accused of verbal abuse and DDOS attacks against other competitors. According to Riot’s final ruling, Absugar “fully violated every part of the Summoner’s Code,” Jensen “violated the Summoner’s Code in a persistent and remorseless fashion” and Näslund “violated the Summoner’s Code in a persistent and unapologetic fashion.”
Team Solo Mebdi has now been disqualified from the event. Riot’s tribunal writes:
“As always, one of our top goals is to ensure that players seeking to compete in the LCS represent the principles of good sportsmanship and clean play.”
Näslund’s account is suspended for the next 12 months, while Absugar and Jensen are suspended indefinitely.
