Riot Games, the company responsible for the game League of Legends (LoL) have made an interesting decision. The developer has banned a player for three days after he revealed spoilers of the movie “Avengers: Endgame” in the game chat. Laptop-Guy user created a thread on Reddit with the email sent by Riot confirming the punishment. In the message, the company recalled that it is normal for people to want to discuss the movie. But it is not cool to spoil those who have not watched it yet.
As soon as the Laptop-Guy user story turned on social networks, other players have also reported receiving bans in the League of Legends for the same reason. Riot Games has categorized the spoilers in the games as a type of toxic behavior, which justifies the three days of suspension.
In the Email sent to the player, Riot says they know that people want to discuss the latest Avengers movie with others, but giving spoilers to players who are yet to watch it is not cool. So they made the verdict to ban the player for three days.
It is worth noting that Laptop-Guy said he was annoyed with what happened, but at the same time agreed to the punishment. The discussion has reached the point where other users request the permanent banning of players who commit this type of activities. Yet there are still no cases in which Riot Games has applied a punishment of this level.
Opinions of users of the subreddit on the situation are divided. Many agreed with the developers and called the account ban fair, although there were those who considered the punishment too harsh. They suggested that the moderators should simply disable the chat of the guilty party.
Riot Games employees participated in the discussion of the punishment. They acknowledged that not all examples of bad behavior are indicated in the official rules, and this case will be studied by them in further detail.
Meanwhile, building up to the MSI 2019, an online platform has revealed the most picked heroes of Lee Faker Sun Hyuk. According to the analytics, in his luxurious career of League of Legends, the South Korean has mostly played on Orianna, Azir, and Ryze.
