In a recent incident Riot Games sided with a hacker against another user, banning the user rather than the hacker simply because the hacker and a couple of his friends reported him for calling him out. Then Riot has tried to cover it up. Here's the story:

From the forums:

3. Attacks or Accusations are not acceptable
Attacking another player is unacceptable, the circumstances are irrelevant, just don’t do it. This includes calling out another player for leaving, cheating, poor gameplay, etc.


You can report them on the tribunal or send an email instead of telling other people "Hey, report this guy".
They had the right to ban you.
As for the hacker or whatever he was, I don't know if he was banned, and i'm not really sure if you know it either.
Before writing an article about them supporting hacking, did you try to contact them via email/twitter/et cetera, and explain the situation?

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

Could just be that animations are corrupted on the user's computer.

This isn't really news worthy...

Quoted:
This is somewhat disappointing.

Xander756 wasn't banned for accusing someone of hacking. He was banned for being reported in 26% of his games and having 5 Tribunal cases in 2 months. He's acquired hundreds of reports in just a few months. His in-game, pre-game and post-game chat are all horrible. He was banned for extremely vulgar language that ranged from sexual to racial slurs. For example, he talks about "punishing [a woman] with violent an*l after a fight" and "destroying that ***." He calls out Mexicans and tells them to get off the NA server. He uses "gay" in a derogatory manner against other players. He uses "raping" to describe when he owns a player. One of his insults is "Go back to your hiding place, al-Qaeda." This is all in addition to the regular dictionary of a toxic player such as using "noobs" over and over in games or calling players "stupid noobs" in so many games I've lost count. I actually won't post other examples because it got disturbing.

Since I know the Tribunal sent Reform Cards for many of these examples, I'm disappointed that the takeaway message was "Riot supports hackers." The takeaway is, Riot doesn't like jerks.

Well none of that was on the reform card so it really makes no sense for Lyte to bring up. It didn't factor into the Tribunal's decision whatsoever and really is an excuse for their poor decision making and damage control.

As this is not direct news related to LoL or MOBAFire, I feel that this should have been posted in General Discussion where it would have more exposure and thus more thoughts, opinions, and discussion.

I don't believe that at all. Clearly a toxic player and good riddance regardless

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.
