Riot Games Korea is being fiercely criticized by the Western League of Legends community for the “unreasonable” penalty for a foreign streamer.
Riot Games Korea is being strongly criticized by the Western League of Legends community for the “unreasonable” penalty for a foreign streamer.
Over the years, the Korean League of Legends server has been a practice “mecca” for countless top players in the world. Because there are too many players crowded in this server, so Riot Games Korea is very strict in the issue of “purging” accounts that are “toxic, game breaking, plowing, …”
But recently, a Western streamer was very confused about the punishment that Riot Games gave himself. More details about this incident, Elite500 has been locked Riot Games account for 2 weeks for some reason, after contacting Riot Games, Elite500’s account has been permanently locked.
“I tried to contact Riot via LPP (Riot Games partner) but they refused to give me any information about the penalty other than that it was no mistake.
I’ve rewatched my old videos countless times to find out what could have caused me to get locked out of my account, I realized the only situation where I was “toxic” was when I responded to a Korean gamer who insulted my mother. me (I hope you fuck off).”
I talked to a few other content creators, heard stories with similar penalties at the Korean server. The only thing I noticed was that all of them (the people whose accounts were locked) were foreigners.
I just don’t understand who the victim here is, is Riot Korea protecting their players from me? Those who were so blatantly racist and insulted my mother were offended by my ***?” – male streamer complains to the League of Legends community.
After the post was widely shared on social networking platforms such as Reddit and Twitter, the Western League of Legends community “hurled hate” at Riot Games because they thought that foreign streamers were being “discriminated” in rank. Weld.
“Welcome to Korean League of Legends, you have been “Cowsepped” (referring to being locked out of your account like Cowsep); Cowsep’s account was locked because he criticized Korean Riot, Elite500 didn’t do that.”
“I watched Elite500’s stream a few days ago and never saw him toxic or trolling even when he was blamed and trolled. I was impressed that Elite500 often said “my fault for that mishandling” instead of blaming his teammates… It’s strange that he got permanently banned from his account.”
“This guy is the least toxic streamer in League of Legends, I hope he gets un-banned.”
“I guess Korean Riot is as discriminating as Korean soloq players.”
“Some random Korean gamer: I hope my mother dies. Elite500: Fuck off.* Get a permanent sentence without explanation.
I believe the Korean player won’t be penalized in this case.”
