Team: Good Game University
Date of Ruling: April 18, 2013 (NA LCS Week 10, Day 2)
Subject: Good Game University - Rule Infraction (4/18/13)

Relevant Rule:
9.3.5 Player Communication During Stoppage of Play

"Players are not allowed to discuss gameplay or game strategy with their teammates (or any topic that could provide a strategic advantage in the match) during a game pause."

The official LCS rules are available here.

Facts:
GGU has been given multiple previous warnings for infractions of rule 9.3.5, with a final warning given during Week 8. During their game today against Vulcun, GGU violated rule 9.3.5 again during the pause at 0:44 game time. As such, they are subject to penalties set forth in Section 10.5 of the LCS rules.

Penalties:
Given GGU's previous infractions, the LCS has issued a one-ban deduction on GGU's next game (NA LCS Week 10, Day 3, TSM vs. GGU) They lose one of their bans, leaving them with two total. Both teams were notified at the time of the decision. Further infractions will result in increased penalties, evaluated on a case-by-case basis, as set forth in Section 10.5.

One ban?
As in they only get to ban 1 champ?
Or they get banned from playing

Even RIOT wants TSM to be rank 1.

But seriously, what is GGU doing? Seems half these rules infractions are targeted at them...
