Hello Summoners!

Over the weekend we were informed of an unfortunate incident where a Riot Games employee acted inappropriately during a game he was streaming. Riot employees are held to a high standard and after thorough review of the incident we have determined that the employee’s actions were both inappropriate and outside the confines of Riot Games internal policy. We hold our employees to higher standards of discretion and professionalism, and take matters that impact our community extremely seriously. We have since unbanned the account that was negatively impacted by this regrettable turn of events.

As a result of this unfortunate situation the employee in question is no longer with Riot Games. Additionally, we will be reviewing internal policy and training procedures to take steps to prevent such incidents from happening in the future.

Thanks,
Steve "Pendragon" Mescon

Thanks for hearing out the community and that no one goes unfavored to unjustly behavior. Although I hope the decision wasn't made too quick and rash, it's possible he could have been coached into providing better behavior and a more positive atmosphere to the community as an employee. After all, we all have our dark days, we all make mistakes and we are all Human.

Thanks Pendragon for the update, and to Riot games for making such a great game that many of us are still enjoying a year later.
