Summoners,

It has been brought to our attention that there have been allegations of play that violates the LCS rules surrounding competitive integrity. The rule in question is Section 10.1.1.1.5:

Collusion includes, but is not limited to, acts such as….deliberately failing to play at one’s best in a game, in any manner inconsistent with the principles of good sportsmanship, honesty, or fair play.

In the judgment of the LCS, this rule was not violated during the final day of the regular season. Given the evolution of the “meta” within League of Legends, and the constant balancing changes made to champions, the LCS cannot deem an intentionally chosen lineup “unviable” before a team takes the field, which means that competitive integrity cannot be sacrificed based on picks and bans alone.

Decisions must then center on whether teams can be judged to have been competing fully in the match. LCS officials are present in each team’s competition room for every match, and are listening to each team’s audio at all times. If an official determined that a team referenced a strategy designed around losing, suggested unnecessarily and inexplicably conservative play, or performed any action that was deemed “uncompetitive,” the game would not be allowed to continue. After conferring with multiple LCS officials, including all on-site referees, no violations of competitive integrity were deemed to have occurred, and no rulings need to be made.

We encourage all Summoners to tune into the LCS Spring Split Playoffs, starting next Friday at 3pm PST.
