The thread hit roughly 14 pages, and was in massive support as I was protruding evidence from Lolking, making it clearly obvious that her boyfriend boosted her account based on KDAS of his main account, his smurf account, and the champions KDAS on her account. The evidence I posted made it extremely obvious to me and many others that this person was boosted over 700 elo in the span of roughly a month and a half

I want to know the status of this account, and the status of her boyfriend's account and his smurf account. The person is an avid forum user, and has denied FULLY, that she was boosted when it is blatantly obvious. I will continue to bump this thread with this response until I can either talk to you, or Pendragon in game or on IRC or something, or I get a response from you here whether or not asking if I can tell you the names of the 3 users.

Thanks.
Bump.

You won't get banned unless you boost lol, they have a pretty foolproof system that just evaluates IP addresses and elo spikes... you don't have to worry about getting accidentally banned.

Why are the actual people who made it possible still able to get the rewards? That is not fair. They probably destroyed tons of opportunity to get rewards for other people and they still get their gold rewards and skin etcetc? They do not deserve it.

Good luck. I really like how forward you've all been with these situations lately. Glad to see things are being pushed forward.
