Riot Games banned three Oceanic League of Legends players Thursday for consistent negative behavior.
One day after fining Team Regicide of the Oceanic Pro League for failing to field a roster by the summer split deadline, Riot levied another competitive ruling, this one against Jimmy “Prowler” Wu, Daniel “Decoy” Ealam and Bradley “Chelby” Williams for showing consistent negative behavior, with multiple reports from other users.
Decoy and Chelby will be suspended from all Riot-affiliated League of Legends competitions for the first two matches of Split 2 of the Oceanic Pro League, while Prowler is is ineligible for all Riot-affiliated League of Legends competition until Split 1 of the 2018 OPL season.
Riot found through an internal investigation that the three players were reported more than average, which demonstrated the extent of their negative behavior in-game. Overly negative behavior that goes against the Summoner’s Code is subject to penalty, and in the case of Prowler, due to his prior attitude coming under fire in another competitive ruling, his penalty was harsher than the others.
Thursday’s competitive ruling was the eighth competitive ruling this year from the Oceanic region.
