League of Legends pro banned for “persistent toxic behaviour”

The rules are simple – don’t be a douchebag.

In news that’s (tragically) unusual enough to actually make headlines, Riot Games has banned a League of Legends pro player for being a constant menace.

Acknowledging that “the decision to impact someone’s career is not one we make lightly”, a disciplinary hearing decided that the community had simply had enough of Dignitas teamster Christian “IWillDominate” Rivera’s serial misbehaviour.

“IWillDominate has been in Tribunal nine times and punished eight times, including the most recent permanent ban. He has a persistent record of in-game harassment, verbal abuse, offensive language and negative attitude,” the ruling found.

“Despite the punishments and official warnings, his harassment score has risen more than 30% from early August to the present date, placing him at the top of the list of North American pro players and among the worst 0.7% of all North American players.”

Rivera’s existing League of Legends accounts have been permanently suspended, and he is ineligible to participate in any official League of Legends Championship Series for one year.

The League of Legends player base has something of a, uh, reputation for bad manners – back in October, Riot Games introduced a new Honor system to promote playing nice with others. If you don’t, this is what happens. Also, everybody will totally know you’re a nasty poohead and you won’t get any dates.
