Would you be angry is the police considered you number 1 suspect?

-He said he was going to DoS
-A player disconnects
-He says "Hit it"

Really, this deserves a ban, its a real world criminal offense.
The problem is that ddosing someone is kind of hard to prove. The very nature of the attack is one designed around not being caught.

I don't think anyone else here that knows how to do it is going to risk putting details up for people. There is a wiki about it though.

To be honest it's surprisingly easy to do for anyone with a little knowledge, or a spare few minutes to google. It's also not exactly hard to defend against either. In this case they mentioned it was a dos though, and not a ddos. That's much easier to prove, and is usually the mark of a complete noob/script kiddie.

If they haven't found proof yet then it's probably not true. I don't know who robertxlee is, but I'm assuming that he has logs at least. There are ways around that too, but from the sounds of it whoever did this isn't very good.

BUMP for awareness. He is probably of the worst NA players around. I wouldn't want to be near him ever.

So there is a way to not only find my IP address in league but to also dramatically effect my game. Only a temp ban? gg riot

He wasn't being malicious, he was being a joker. This is RIOT's way of saying "stop that".
you gotta be joking right?
if this wasn't the GM of GGU he would be permabanned. the fact the GM of a pro team did this should get him and his team removed from the tourney and his account permabanned i think its safe to say this wasn't his first incident. Nintendude said "Hit it" as if this was a every game thing. Meanwhile we still have people getting banned for playing unorthodox builds
