Also, does this incident affect Paypal users? Since I know PP uses a separate login?
Thanks.
As long as your authentication went through on the initial sign up, you are good to go. That initial auth creates a relationship that doesn't require log in credentials (so PW updates aren't necessary).

Also Paypal users will not be affected by this.

Please read the post if you are going to reply to it. This was not done until several DAYS had past, and several hundred threads/players were banned, muted, moved, edited, ect. already.

Please read the post I quoted. That is the post I was replying to. Don't make blanket statements "Riot chooses not to say ANYTHING" when what you just stated here in the quotes is more accurate.

is "Xperiment" not banned yet? Is there a reason he wouldn't be banned? What happened to me can happen to anyone, apparently.

use logic. Red was hacked to say it was all a troll. What would have happened if red posted saying issue was brought to their attention?

1. that post could be hacked too
2. give hacker info that his time is limited so he better up his game
