So Yegg, this is a bit off-topic, but I know that Riot does awesome things for the community, like giving 1 RP when folks need it for a sassy skin or such. Is there any chance I could get 1 ELO in my 5's solo/duo bracket? I'm at 1849, and i've been rubber banding around this ELO for what seems like forever.

Riot pls?

He boosted a different account every day, he was probably the biggest offender of all.

Good show!

Would like someone to explain how elo boosting is against the rules with the explanation of "affects many innocent players who find themselves battling a player whose true Elo is 1000 or more points above theirs.", but smurfing is A OK in riots books. It affects way more than the few who elo boost, the same exact way.

I am good friends with yang and i know for a fact that he had no bad intentions. Also he had just told me that he was stopping these services... i dont know why you would ban him. if you had watched his stream in the past week since coming back from worlds you would see that he has only been playing on his real account. i find this a bit unreasonable because he did not mean to be breaking any of the terms of service purposely.
