It's the rules to not call people out by names. Riot is just enforcing their rules. They are literally the only reason that these forums haven't fallen apart.

Ok, I realize it was probably counterproductive, but stopping and taking the time to respond to about 30 trolls at once was hilarious. GJ Red.

At the risk of being downvoted into hell, I have to ask why the punishment of a complete stranger over a crime that affects hardly anyone is the buisness of the entire lol community.

I'm curious to see if she's punished too. But it hardly seems fair to demonize someone and submit them to incredible amounts of rage. People are punished for elo boosting on a regular basis. She shouldn't receive the rage of the lol community just because the person who may or may not have elo boosted her is popular.

I'm taken aback by the Riot responses in this thread. The first one was iffy, the second one is downright hostile.

Wow. This is significantly affecting my perception of this company. I can't believe an official representative of Riot is handling this discussion in this manner.

Uhh, have you LOOKED at the forums recently? Silver/Bronze queue players complain day after day about how awful ranked is (I cannot confirm/deny the truth. I'm Silver and I win on a decent basis), and she has less than a 30% win rate in Diamond V.

It's sickening how people overlook this fact. Her MMR is equal or less to that of a Gold or even a Silver player.

We've already commented on the matter a little over a month ago. We have nothing more to say and no amount of gnashing of teeth and fake internet outrage will adjust our stance on the matter.





Of course an investigation has started. And of course we're not going to comment on it publicly. This isn't mob justice.




Agreed. Which is why those who do this end up punished. Complaining about it on GD won't help speed up the process.




Jeez. And you wonder why people don't comment on issue like this.





They ALWAYS say they "know the CEO of the company". Come on dudes, don't be so gullible. The amount of silly conspiracy theories lately is just ridiculous.




I see this complaint a lot. You're assuming those players are not punished as well. Let's be real. Our forums are HUGE. There are quite a few things that get people banned on a daily basis including: "spam, porn, and generally hateful topics". Most likely they will continue to be posted and we will do our best to clean it up, but sometimes it will slip through. Regardless that doesn't excuse starting witch hunts, that's why It's ALL against the rules.




If you believe any of that then you should check any of the fillings you got recently. I heard the government is using them to track your every word and movement.

Unfortunately the Reptillians go straight to the top.




It's funny how much misogyny there has been over this issue.




I take that back. The misogyny is really sad and pathetic.





Sorry we're not handling the situation to General Discussion's specifications.




I'm afraid we've already commented on the matter. There isn't anything else to say and our stance, especially on Naming and Shaming remains the same.

I'd like to challenge you on this. Where did we say that "everything is fine go home?" all of our comments on the matter were that we were looking into it. Which we were, and we followed up with specific actions.

Also we have moderated threads dealing with Pro-Players when they cross the line. I have plenty of tickets waiting me complaining about this fact.




Without knowing your specific account I can't say specifically what happened. If you have an issue with a moderation decision then you can write us a ticket. I DO know however, that most of the complaints I get on our support site are from Level 5 Alt accounts from the same set of players who KNOW what they're doing but are always shocked with feigned outrage when they end up getting banned. There is no amount of posting that would satisfy these players.




No one has received special treatment. All I can say is mob justice does not guide our hand. And if we were to even take action we wouldn't even comment on it.




Thank you. We can't be everywhere at once.





I'm not afraid of the downvotes.



Please take a Civics 101 class.
I like how you completely avoided my post about IWillDominate.

Checkmate.

If you read some of the posts that Wookie's responded to, some of them themselves are hostile and questions which Wookie have already answered so I see why he would be a little miffed.

lolno. Banning gem, while completely necessary, does nothing to protect your information.
Huehuehue I use Riot cards rather than a credit card.

Regardless the accusation is play here is that Gem & Friend have an acquaintance at riot who compromised account security to assist his friend in retaliation against people claiming GEM deserved punishment, normally this could be easily dismissed but considering Riotjay's prior involvement with GEM, this is much more threatening an accusation than it normally would be.

If something went wrong, just send a support ticket, I highly doubt a ticket about being hacked will be ignore.
Some of the players was literally in hot water in the chat because they kept making fun of GEM/Pikachu, it's their fault.
They pretty much asked for it, and as for the other hacked account, sucks for them, but Riot can get it back/deal with it.
They're not as corrupt as players think. :P
Try not to follow the bandwagon!

I'm on your side here wookiee, but this situation seems to have gotten to you, this is an abnormally aggressive post, are you okay?
