While firing seems harsh, you have to realize that the guy didn't just rage and abuse his power, but he also used racist slurs. That's a line that you simply can't cross and any respectable company would fire any employees doing that.

I hope you "gamers" are proud - having someone fired from their job irl just because you can't take the heat. good job buy more kleenex. I've actually had the privileage to game with him - not only was he nice, cool and a good sport he played a great game and was a good experience.

I think the raging part was actually possible to look past, as everyone can become irate during a competitive video game. Maybe a slap on the wrist for first time offense and a warning to stfu if you want to keep your job, ect.

The ban part they can't overlook, that's what makes it different than a high profile streamer. They have policies about how bans are handled and he breached their trust by doing it the way that he did.

Good job Riot. Maybe a bit extreme; I'd hope for a temporary dismissal more than a firing to end his career. But at least there was a response.

I'm... impressed.

I didn't hear about the racist slurs. Is there evidence of this?

what funny is that Riot still has Employees who use Racial slurs in there Forum & Online names they have done nothing to change the name "RiotJeffJew" or something like that.

I have ran into players who use the name "asian" in there online & forum names it still has not been changed.
