Riot Lays Down Some Lifetime Bans
In the past few months we’ve seen Riot cracking down on toxic players in the professional scene. Harsh punishments have hit IWillDominate, Absolute Legends, Linak, and Envision. However, today, the hardest swing of Riot’s banhammer has come crashing down on Team Solo Mebdi.
Khaled “StunnedandSlayed” Abusagr and Nicolaj “Veigodx” Jensen have received lifetime bans and as of today are ineligible to compete in any Riot-affiliated events indefinitely. A third member of the team, Simon “Rayt3ch” Näslund, has received the standard one year ban from competitive play. Naturally this means Team Solo Mebdi will not be playing in the European LCS Qualifier.
StunnedandSlayed was reported in an absurd 18% of total matches and has had three other accounts permabanned in the past. One account is the infamous DarkwinJax, who has the highest harassment score ever recorded in the history of the EU West server. To add to the ridiculousness, he was reported over 1000 times during a 375-game period and threatened to physically assault a Riot employee. Jensen was completely unapologetic for his past actions and as seen above, has been caught engaging in DDoS attacks. He’s also been banned twice in the past under the names Wizikx and Wizikodex. While Rayt3ch was the least serious offender he’s still in the worst 0.01% of all European accounts.
Yes, that’s Lance Armstrong. Google it.
