Riot Games has thrown down the ban-hammer and it appears that 3 professional teams have been eliminated as a result. The following teams have forfeited their spot for the upcoming tournaments, Renegades, Team Impulse, and Team Dragon Knight.
There seems to be some misleading actions that occurred, some lack of concern for the welfare of players, some illegal trades, and more. There have been bans on owners of at least one team, and there seems to be 3 spots that have just hit the market as these teams can't use those spots any more.
Now I'm going to be totally honest the only Pro League I follow is SMITE so I'm not 100% sure what all this means in the long run for League of Legends, but as they are the number 1 MOBA with the deepest pockets something tells me that this is actually a huge deal and the waves caused by these are going to be felt for quite awhile.
There is of course the fact that as eSports gets more and more into the spotlight the leaders of the professional organizations really really don't want to lose any momentum that they are gaining by allowing for scandals to happen. So here's to cleaning up the system before it's truly out for all to see.
