Vi har allerede bragt en lang række historier, der handler om Riot Games der svarer igen på kontroversielle udtalelser fra professionelle League of Legends-spillere, og nu er de nødsaget til at gøre det igen. Dot Esports kan nemlig rapportere, at Kirill "Likkrit" Malofeyev er blevet bandlyst i hele seks måneder efter at have udtalt sig om Riot Games på et livestream.
"According to Riot Games, there is every reason to recognise the conduct of Cyril Malofeev as unprofessional in accordance with the provisions of 10.2 of the Regulations and the imposition of punishment on the basis of the provision 10.2.8."
"Taking into account the severity of the consequences caused by the statements of Kirill Malofeev for the reputation of Riot Games, League of Legends and the Continental League, as well as the re-application of disciplinary sanctions ( suspension from participation in competitions in May 2017), Riot Games decides on the player's disqualification from participation in the competition for the League of Legends for six months, starting from December 18, 2017."
Disse kommentarer var blandt andet "discrediting the business reputation of the company Riot Games, and posing a threat to the image of League of Legends and the Continental League".
