So these people get to walk away with their money and accounts fully intact? Only suffering a 2 week ban?..

It honestly seems like a slap on the wrists in my eyes, but I guess it's better than nothing.

Justice has been served! I actually ended up going against robertxlee and zekent doing elo jobs and they completely destroyed our team. It was not fair at all.

Yes you wouldn't want to ban innocent people in person... that's what the tribunal is for.

The thread hit roughly 14 pages, and was in massive support as I was protruding evidence from Lolking, making it clearly obvious that her boyfriend boosted her account based on KDAS of his main account, his smurf account, and the champions KDAS on her account. The evidence I posted made it extremely obvious to me and many others that this person was boosted over 700 elo in the span of roughly a month and a half

I want to know the status of this account, and the status of her boyfriend's account and his smurf account. The person is an avid forum user, and has denied FULLY, that she was boosted when it is blatantly obvious. I will continue to bump this thread with this response until I can either talk to you, or Pendragon in game or on IRC or something, or I get a response from you here whether or not asking if I can tell you the names of the 3 users.

Thanks.
Bump

here's something that'll blow your mind: get better at the game and you won't have to worry about boosters beating you in 800 elo all the time
