Slingshot Readers,

We NEED your support. More specifically, the author of this article needs your support. If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat. If just half our readers gave 1 DOLLAR a month, one measly dollar, we could fund all the work from StuChiu, DeKay, Emily, Andrew (and even Vince). If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support. After all, you're what makes all this happen. Learn more


Tainted minds get six months probation and a fine. What?

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

Apdo was given a 1,000 year ban for ELO boosting. XiaoWeiXiao was banned for ELO boosting and couldn’t play in the LCS. We found out later that was the only way he could make money. Renegades was tried for player abuse, but as far as I know, none of the evidence was ever shown. This eventually resulted in Riot forcing MonteCristo to sell his team. Players have been fined in the thousands for toxic behavior.

Tainted Minds did a number of terrible things with evidence provided. Poor training conditions, mold, unsafe living conditions and more. You can read the article here.

They were given a six month probation and $7 000 AUD ($5,300) fine.

What the hell is this? I think I’d get an aneurysm if I was paid to follow League full time.
