Seriously, there was evidence, permaban him. That's much worse than what most permabans are for.

I've got to assume the reason he isn't permabanned is that they aren't sure he actually did it. However, the timing seems PRETTY DAMN SUSPICIOUS.

as a manager of a team that plays professionally, he should know how damaging a DDOS attack is. That being said, a "warning" for issuing something illegal in his country of residence seems very lenient. I would have liked to see a much harsher response.

Why just a warning, Riot? You realize you are giving trolls and others with the ability to do this the idea they can at least get away with it ONCE with just a slap on the wrist. A warning? No time ban? No perma ban? Messing with your servers and disconnecting people is OKAY? But saying "gg noobs" is punishable verbal harassment? This is doesn't weight out correctly.

This is a juicy case with some interesting information in it, it is just disappointing you are letting them get away with it.

Lets not forget that you were also given the specific person who did this. Any other time, who the hell knows?

DDoSing a streamer is retarded anyway, he deserves any punishment for this if he is found guilty.

Are you for real ? Why not insta ban him ? You guys banned "IWDominate" for verbal abuse/harrassment and you guys give warning to a player who DDosed a pro league player ? Are you for real riot ? Please ban this player or take GGU out of LCS.

Youre giving him a warning? Thats it? This is illegal, both in game, and out of game, the maximum penalty being 10 years in prison. Yet hes getting away with just a warning? The least that should have come from this is not only a permenant ban from LoL, including an IP ban, but also a disqualification from present and future official LoL tournaments. Im not saying disqualify the GGU team, but certainly their GM.

Not only is it disgusting that hed partake in such misconduct, but its clear that this is not the first time. Hes supposed to be a GM, a roll model for an active LCS team. Its a disgrace that hes even allowed to retain his account, especially with no penalty.

Also, what does it say about his level of play. Clearly he doesnt deserve to be in challenger if he cannot play a game without DDoSing someone whos better than him, in order to win.

Way too soft on this ruling. Permaban him and Nintendude from the LCS.
