Pretty sure you had to accept the EULA when you installed the game, they can ban you for whatever they feel like banning you for. Have fun with your near infantile ability to process basic logic.

I do hope the OP likes bans and name changes, because I get the feeling he's going to be enjoying both sometime soon.

They can't ban you because you didn't agree to follow the rules, and they recognize that you disagreed to follow them. Thus there is no actual disagreement. And you can not be held responsible.

Prove me wrong.


The Summoner's Code is not the default code of conduct for the game. It's a guideline to help you understand what behaviors are favored. There is still a set of rules about what is a bannable offense that exists separate from the Code.

If you're wondering, then, why the Code even has to exist when there's already a policy in place to handle negative behavior, well...that's an excellent thing to be wondering.

I don't agree with the laws, so they don't apply to me?

Hmmmmmm


It's a legitimate strategy called civil disobedience (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_disobedience) employed to deal with unjust laws. Not that the summoner's code is a set of unjust laws, just sayin'.

Since this forum isn't under any sort of federal law protecting freedom of speech (it being privately owned and operated...think walking into someone's home and trash talking them) Riot can ban you for whatever they want.

The summoners code is simply a gimmick to get people to act like civilized human beings.

It was a privately owned restaurant, as all are, that read "No coloreds allowed." I took up my belongings and had a seat. I ordered my meal. An officer was promptly called and I was forcibly escorted off the premises. It was a privately owned restaurant: "White's only."
