I am just wondering if it's legal (according to the terms of use) to sell ranked teams.
I've read through the terms of use, and these points might ban selling ranked teams.


Quoted:
3 D. Account Sales. The Account supplied to you is personal to you, and Riot Games does not recognize and expressly forbids the transfer of user Accounts. You shall not purchase, sell, gift or trade any Account, or make any such offer, and any attempt shall be null and void. Any distribution by you of your Account and/or your Login Credentials (except as expressly provided herein or otherwise explicitly approved of by Riot Games) may result in suspension or termination of your Account.


Quoted:
4 B. […] The sale or transfer of Virtual Items or Riot Points between users may only be conducted via services approved of and provided by Riot Games, if any, and Riot Games may terminate any Account that acts in contravention of this prohibition. […]


Quoted:
5 I. Participating in any action which, in the sole and exclusive judgment of Riot Games, defrauds any other user of the Game, including, but not limited to, by "scamming" or "social engineering;”
Thanks to Keondre!

How exactly would you sell a ranked team? Get it to diamond, then invite some other people and have your whole team leave?

I'm pretty sure that would fall under the same category as boosting and account sales. I don't really get why anyone would buy a ranked team though.
Thanks to Hoppermh for the sig!

People buy spots on Diamond 5vs5 teams for 75 euros 50 for 3vs3 teams.

I think it is frowned upon.

From my knowledge, it's merely frowned upon.

If you are seen doing it expect the Ranked Team to be deleted. :P

Cuz pride and honour mean nothing and rating means everything.
