I think you should postpone all of GGU's matches until they find a new manager, or form under a new team. That is just unacceptable.

And they try to force the "hurr durr vidya gaem is a sport" mentality.
MOST OF LEAGUES INSTANTLY EXPEL PERMANENTLY ATHELETES CAUGHT DOPPING.
Why can't we have a PRO PLAYER that cheated and even further, he made a ****ing federal crime PERMABANNED?
RIOT PLS

He didn't DoS anyone, Riot haven't said he actually did DoS anyone. They are however taking a stance on his conduct, a part of which is if he makes further "threats" of DoS attacks they will take that very seriously, to the point they will punish without evidence.

The only injustice is people now think he DoSed in that game, when there is no solid evidence that he did.

The usual way to cheat is to hide at all costs that cheating is occurring, not announcing in all chat.

Riot's Mantra is reform over punish, what is gained by banning him?

This is sad... all you've presented is a vague inference that he might have DoSed someone. You haven't presented any proof whatsoever, and yet you're issuing him with a final warning. Better yet, GD sees Riot post + mention of the term DDoS and starts jumping on the bandwagon. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?


Not very innocent. He's a blatant idiot. Why would you even chat about it on the server. Self-incrimination. The easiest open/closed cases.

But Good Guys Riot lets him off with a warning instead of you know... Banning him from any and all things League related. He's still going to go to tournaments with the team etc. While the tribunal bans people for cursing.

Another blemish for the never forget wall.

Well, I think they should be fine under the GGU name as long as Hexo (and possibly Nintendude if they can fully prove he actively knew about the DoS) are no longer part of the team.

What is gained by allowing somebody so unprofessional to continue operating in the tournament realm?

A warning for this kind of infraction from an LCS team manager is quite frankly unacceptable. Riot, you are far too lenient with the public figureheads of your esport.

So Riot's only way of proving DoS is if the culprit is stupid enough to record himself doing it. Which means DoS is still possible?

So did he not even get a temp ban?

That doesn't matter, it really doesn't. Everything just adds up against the guy, I don't know why you're so hesitant to believe such blatant evidence.

Because the door swings both ways. If he's a toxic player there's probably a lot of people that don't like him and make things up.

Besides, typing into all-chat your DOS commands? Come on now. Why would a DOS program be something integrated with the client and not stand alone?
