Riot Games has been forced to add three more professional players to its suspended list after banning a team from competing in a Championship Series qualifying event.
The three players, Khaled Abusagr, Nicolaj Jensen, and Simon Näslund, were disqualified from entering the tournament due to toxic behavior, including verbal abuse and DDOS attacks against other players. Absugar “fully violated every part of the Summoner’s Code,” Jensen “violated the Summoner’s Code in a persistent and remorseless fashion,” and Näslund “violated the Summoner’s Code in a persistent and unapologetic fashion.”
All three players were part of Team Solo Mebdi, which is now banned from the event.
“Of course, nobody wants to take actions like these so close to a tournament event,” Riot Games wrote, “but it takes time to carefully investigate, review and uncover all of the relevant historical facts of players (especially when they’ve operated under multiple banned accounts), and we never make decisions like these lightly.”
“As always, one of our top goals is to ensure that players seeking to compete in the LCS represent the principles of good sportsmanship and clean play.”
