Tilbage i oktober kunne vi rapportere, at League of Legends-spilleren Li "Vasilii" Wei Jun blev suspendere af Riot Games efter en undersøgelse omkring vold i hjemmet. Nu kan udvikleren afsløre, at spilleren er blevet bandlyst frem til 2020.
"We have questioned both Vasilii and his girlfriend separately, both remotely and in person. Both of them denied that Vasilii physically assaulted her, and there is no conclusive evidence to the contrary. Although the investigation results don't show proof that Vasilii physically assaulted his girlfriend, he made credible threats of physical violence and death threats toward a defenseless person in a private home that were intimidating enough for her to call the police. This is unacceptable."
Riot Games siger i øvrigt, at hans opførsel er "beyond the worst kinds of extreme misconduct that we originally had in mind when we devised the Global Penalty Index," og selvom at den normale straf for at true en anden spiller er 10 måneder, så kræver dette tilfælde en hårdere straf.
