Where does the "role model" standard stop?
Seriously though like 50% of all the pro players that stream are ******bags and talk **** nonstop. That's the nature of a competitive game. Banning his account would have been punishment enough, having to level, re-buy champions/runes/etc would be AWFUL. To destroy someone's actual CAREER over stuff that they said in game is pretty harsh. If it's someone actively ruining games by intentionally feeding/etc ok, but not for "offensive" language.
What are you, stupid? "Seriously though like 50% of all the pro players that stream are ******bags and talk **** nonstop. That's the nature of a competitive game." NOT THIS GAME, SUCKER. Riot
make the rules of this game, the community doesn't get to say "nope, we aren't going to follow them, we insist on our right to be jerks to people for no good reason", he was warned again and again and again
and he didn't listen. He doesn't deserve an esports career because he wouldn't follow the rules.
No-one should have ANY sympathy for him.
The precendent Riot is setting here is that pro players are subject to the same rules as everyone else.
This should be a good warning to the other pros that they are NOT invulnerable. This is a good thing.
Any pro who gets permabanned now, after IWillDominate has been made an example of, could only be described as "too dumb to live." Stop acting like removing a grade-A jerkass from the game is somehow a bad thing.
