Riot Games Sanction League of Legends Pro Players for Cheating

Riot Games announced on the League of Legends forums that it has sanctioned several professional League of Legends players for engaging in what it calls "Elo-Boosting." Elo-Boosting is when one player stands in and plays on another player's client to artificially improve that person's Elo rating. Elo is a system that calculates a player's relative skill level. Mucking about with that system is apparently a pretty serious offense.

Riot Games says that those players (who it does not name in the post) have earned a 14-day suspension from playing and have forfeited all of their Season two rewards.

"Any further infractions will result in a permanent account ban and corresponding penalties, as deemed appropriate by LCS," a senior League of Legends eSports manager wrote on the message board.

The moral of the story: mind your own business.
