I don't understand how "Muslim" can be offensive/inappropriate, maybe if you hate Muslims or something, riot confirmed discrimination, they hate Muslims and assassins (i joke).
If the sole purpose was to prevent the toxicity from other players, then I don't believe those other players are mature enough to handle an online multi-player game, so they would be toxic and I would report them, resulting in less toxicity.
If we go by the logic that religion has no place in LoL, then everyone's name that has to do with religion (and gets a warning) should go through what happened to me, but that won't happen so I have no other choice but to believe there might have been slight discrimination involved within my case
Welp, I have a free summoner name change I guess, I just really liked this name, especially during Ramadan/My birthday(totally relevant). This might not seem like a big deal to you all but it is from my standpoint. Out of all the Muslims that play LoL, I got the actual IGN that defines us all into one category and I love(d) representing it.
EDIT: Before anyone jumps on the Riot-hate wagon, I do want to believe that this ban was justified and I want to share with you all that I am allowed to appeal my account (and presumably get the ban lifted) if I go through with a summoner-name change, my point is that I shouldn't have to :\.
EDIT#2: Notice how in the email it says no reason as to why I was banned, a little fishy. I had to submit a support query for them to actually give the reason as to why I was banned. Maybe I was just perma-banned for toxicity, but why warn me and then permaban me the next day? I didn't play any games post-warning so that's a little fishy as well. I just want an explanation at this point.
EDIT#3: I'm not trying to put Riot in a bad light, and neither should you. It's probably our fault anyways (the communities') that we can't handle these types of IGN's.
EDIT#4: I just found out that the code "2103" is specifically for name violation bans (shown in the second picture), so I wasn't permabanned for my in-game behavior. This clears up some
things that I was confused about.
EDIT#6: Also, here's some proof that I actually am Muslim.
Here is my reddit post, 1 month ago, asking for people in /r/Islam to play league of legends. http://www.reddit.com/r/islam/commen...ue_of_legends/
Feel free to message that reddit account if you're having doubts and I'll respond, thanks.
EDIT#7: Strange thing about this is, is that I logged in a while ago and came to a summoner name-change screen, and I just posted to forums asking why my username was offensive and they removed the summoner-name change prompt. I was hoping something similar would happen this time. Here is my GD post about it. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=3376959
