Main reason I bumped it with the link to Reignofgaming's interview.

The thing of his describing a deal being cut with Riot to be able to participate in the S3 LCS is what made me curious. On the surface it looks like a "behind the curtains" hypocritical move by Riot to go back on what they were so proud to tell the community.

Honestly? For myself? Whole thing doesn't affect my life one way or another. It's just an amusing development.

Did the people complaining about him going back to the competitive scene even read the OP?

Ouch. They REALLY smashed him with the banhammer. Can we do this for all permabans?

First of all, he is FAR from one of the worst toxic players riot has dealt with. Riot only said that to cover their ass because they were kicking him out of the LCS. Also, his punishment has been and will always be MORE severe than 99.999% of other players. Everyone else who gets banned can make a new account and play in the LCS given that they train hard enough. He is one of like 4 people who was got all of his accounts banned and was NOT allowed in the LCS. There is no rule bending reguardless of whether or not he is allowed in the LCS because his old accounts will stay banned just like every other player who have been banned before.

Bitingpig's post on the first page. One year seems to be coming early is all.

Banning the accounts seems like punishment enough.
The tournament ban seems spiteful.

Good to see a level of fairness here. I'm completely in favor of Tribunal and banning toxic players, as long as its done fairly, and this definitely seems to be a step in the right direction.

Bravo Riot

Everything you said was spot on, but this is the part that's the heart of the matter.

The situation is one of - A player is a complete tool to others while playing in the competitive scene. Riot finally drops the hammer on him and perma bans his known accounts. So, what's to stop him from making a new account? Nothing. What's to stop him from using that new account to compete again?

Now that's the big thing. See, a player like this wouldn't have to "train hard enough" with that new account to be considered by a team. They'd pick him up off of his previous skill and tournament play alone. How many champs and skins or ELO win rate on his new account would be pointless. Money would be spent and he's back in business.

So the point of the One Year ban from LCS was to show that there was no easy way out for a pro that's broken the rules. It would have set a really bad example if they hadn't made that move. Without it, the whole punishment announcement would have been pointless.
