This behavior included, but was not limited to, in game harassment, verbal abuse, and general in game toxicity. Tzortziou was given multiple warnings by LCS officials, and despite acknowledging his behavior, he has made no subsequent steps to improve. He has received consistently more reports than any other LCS professional player, and also has the one of the highest harassment scores in the history of the LCS.</p><p><strong>Relevant Rules</strong></p><p>Section 10.2.7 of the LCS Ruleset states:</p><p><em>If LCS or Riot determines that a Team Member has violated the Summoner's Code, the LoL Terms of Service, or other rules of LoL, LCS officials may assign penalties at their sole discretion.</em></p><p>Section 10.2.9 of the LCS Ruleset states:</p><p><em>A Team Member may not engage in any activity which is deemed by the LCS to be immoral, disgraceful, or contrary to the conventional standards of proper ethical behavior.</em></p><p><strong>Analysis</strong></p><p>Tzortziou has continued to consistently engage in behavior which violates the letter and spirit of the Summoner's Code. His tendency to engage in verbal abuse, insults and offensive behavior is unacceptable for any player (even if provoked). This behavior is especially harmful in&nbsp;a high-profile eSports competitor who should lead the community by example.</p><p><strong>Ruling</strong></p><p>Tzortziou has violated the Summoner's Code in a persistent fashion, and has therefore violated rules 10.2.7 and 10.2.9, and will be subject to penalties.</p><p><strong>Competition Penalties</strong></p><p>Tzortziou is:</p><ul><li>Fined $1000 USD</li></ul> <style type="text/css"> .article-body .region-na, .article-body .region-br, .article-body .region-eune, .article-body .region-euw, .article-body .region-tr { display:none; } </style> </div> </div>

Well than, the fine seems kind of... numbing to the mind.

I'd really prefer to see game-time being taken away.


But hey, this is a step in the right direction I guess.

A time ban speaks louder imo. Its like fining an NFL player $25,000.

It's chump change to them.
