He was banned from Riot's LCS/Sponsored tournaments, not from other sponsors tournaments.

The guy (Hexo) been trash talking Riot all day on his Twitter and elsewhere. Claiming they have no proof and if they did they should just ban him or whatever.

As well as having been caught selling elo boosting on various forums by some dude on reddit. He edited all the forum posts by now I'm sure though.

**** this Hexo guy. Seriously, seems like a major ******canoe anyway.

I did and the attack happened against someone playing lol, not against riot themselves.
They can look at the chat log and see that everything points to the threat of doing a ddos and it being carried out. But the attack happened against the player. All riot knows is that he dc'd they do not know why and can only assume by what is in chat and the events that happened.
The person that was attacked has to pick up from there.
Riot knows what happened but they do not monitor ip traffic to your location. They also have no proof or even a dog in this fight.

A guy playing lol was ddos'd riot cant do anything that other than what they did.

Think of it like this. You go to a convenience store. Go inside to buy a icee and someone steals your car.
Is it the stores fault?
Does the store call the cops, your insurance company, get you a rental car. Give you your icee for free?

No they tell you sorry.
And give up video if they want to but not obligated to.

Same thing here.
Someone playing lol got attacked. Riot knows nothing more than what was said in chat logs and that some person had a dc from their game at that time. They can put 2+2 together and issue a warning but the attack did not happen to them.

And im sure the person that got attacked didn't know what happened either. Unless you are running software to monitor traffic to your ip. Or calling your isp at the time its happening. Then nothing can be done.

So, how exactly are you imagining that Riot should prove a DoS attack on someone else?

Subpoena the ISP for logs.

Riot's got no standing to do so. The user who got dosed could, and assuming the person who launched the DoS sucked pretty bad, the ISP logs might even help. Possibly. Assuming the ISP still has them.
Don't get me wrong, they should ban the ****er on suspicion, or for the other shady **** he's been doing (see Reddit), but no court on Earth would give Riot access to a third party's ISP logs without loads more reason.
