You have just as much right (if not far more) to play League of Legends, as you do to join your local country club... and Riot has a similar right to kick you out, or ban you from ever coming back and keep your money, based on the legal contract you signed with them as the terms of letting you participate. This has nothing to do with "online" rights, lack of government protections, or any such BS.

The only way I've seen Riot "exploit" people, is by having a free to play game. They are exploiting low barriers to entry, and the fact that you have tons of people to play against at basically any skill level. freebie moochers of the game are being "exploited" to provide evolving and consistently challenging "human opponents" for more fun experience for the paying customers. This in turn, (according to Riots evil master game plan) means that the moochers get to enjoy the same experience and they too might become paying customers.

It's all about as Evil as a purring kitten.
There is no evil master plan. That's just how the real world works :O Companies exploit whatever they can to turn it into profit or an advantage. For example, if u ever get legitimately hacked and you lose everything u have; Riot can just tell you: nope, we aren't giving u **** back. And there is NOTHING u can do about it, regardless of how much money, time or effort u put into your account. This isn't my first MMO amor; I know how this rolls.

Yegg, I have done this and so have others(Not in terms of boosting).
Asking for help on Competitive forums is ban worthy? Cause I have asked but never offered to pay anyone
or have asked anyone to log on my account.

I main support mostly and really want Janna's skin, so I've asked for help. If this is punishable I'll stop today.

It's pretty cool that a guy who is friends with the President of Riot is not immune to punishment for breaking ToS.
