I will keep re-posting this until I get a Riot response.

I am in no way a model player. This game has a tendency of pissing me off to no end. That said, I have been trying to improve my behavior and I think I've been doing a good job. It's just this account is to the point where one or two games I have an outburst in will get me in trouble. As evident by my last Tribunal ban where only two games were shown out of literally only a handful played. I've disabled All chat to help and have been trying my hardest to not say anything back to other toxic players.

Anyways, the day of my last ban more than a month ago I had purchased a timed XP boost of 7 days. Later that day my account was disabled and banned for a week. It appears when an account is locked out Riot doesn't disable/stop timed stuff like they do when they have maintenance. So when I got back into the game a week later my timed boost had run out which to me is completely absurd.

Now, I understand that my actions were less than desirable and I was more than willing to do my time. However, I paid for a specific service that had a timer on it and I expect to be able to make use of that. Basically, Riot has stolen my money and I don't appreciate that. So then, when I submit a support ticket they give me completely irrelevant information that tells me I'm SOL. They don't offer refunds on money but I just wanted the time reset to where it was when the ban happened. I paid hard earned money that right now I don't have a lot of to not get use of a service? That just doesn't make sense...

Anyways, I'm trying to get more than a computerized response from Riot about this issue and hope to get it resolved. I'm not here to start a flame war and I'm not here claiming I'm an angel. I haven't been the best player and I admit to that. I just want the right thing done when it concerns my money.

So, let me understand.

You go to the grocery store and spend $20 on food.

Then you get home, and the police are waiting to arrest you for shooting the guy down the street.

While you're in prison, the food spoils. You never got to eat it.

So now the grocery store or food manufacturer is supposed to refund it?

You got punished. Live with the consequences.

That's absurd and this isn't real life. I paid for a digital service and I expected to be able to use it.

People actually buy XP boosts?

You paid for a time frame based digital service. During that time frame, you were punished in a way that prevented you from playing the game in which the digital service would be rendered unto you.

I see no problem here.

You spent money. You got removed from the venue in which you would use the product you spent money on.

I can keep going with examples:

Bought tickets > got thrown out of the carnival/zoo/Sea World/Disneyland/movie theater/Broadway/NASCAR race/PGA Tournament/Cowboys game (you seem like a Dallas fan, honestly)/Nashville Predators game/etc. and so on and so forth forever using any example in which you pay to do something and then get yourself thrown out

Have fun with that.

I would rather you keep making this thread so I can continue to laugh at you.

Sorry, this is just dumb. This is the only game in which I've been banned and I've played too many other online games to count. I don't get kicked out of physical places and I don't get banned from other games. I paid for a service and I expect to be able to use it. Also, I'm a 49'ers fan.
