SaintVicious, HotshotGG, and Reginald banned again. It's not like I enjoy any of those guys, in fact I hate all 3. But they were almost undoubtably banned for their behavior on stream which is totally ridiculous. Riot needs to stop trying to be the internet police and treat these streamers as any other ordinary play and send them through the tribunal system as every other offender goes through.

what are your thoughts?
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

I would agree. Punishments should only be considered for what happens IN GAME like everybody else. I find it odd that Riot would spend so much time watching streams and stalking pro players to make sure they don't make them look bad. The pro players will bring the game more popularity by streaming even if they're being ****s, hey that's why some people like them.

I think it reflects poorly on Riot if they were banned for streaming behavior, though isn't is possible they went through the tribunal for something?
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

The whole thing about Saintvicious was that Riot had watched him intentionally troll a player and basically ruin the entire game for him. This wasn't just his actions on stream, but in-game as well. Hotshot and Reginald being banned I don't know anything about.


Thanks to The Nameless Bard and Vavena for the sigs!

Well, they banned him for his behavior in game, they don't consider what he is saying on his stream, unless it's "hey im raising the ELO of this guy's account for money." or something like that.

It is my understanding, that he was banned for a violation of the summoner's code, and he was banned instantly only because riot employee's were directly witnessing his actions because of his stream.

Edit: HotshotGG and Reginald weren't banned to my knowledge.

If they don't like being banned, then they shouldn't **** up on Stream in front of thousands. They know that plenty are watching them, there's no excuse.

What they say, or do, on stream that does not DIRECTLY INFLUENCE the other players' IN-GAME experience should not be banable. Who gives a rats *** if they trash talk the other players? Unless it's flaming in the IN-GAME CHAT, they have NO REASON to ban him/them.

If they do it with SV, Regi and HSGG they should go after every single freaking stream as well. It's everyone or no one.

Saintvicious torlled the jungler on his team, randomly picking a champ and steling xp and gold for 20 minutes because he didn't get the jungler.
Riot saw this and banned him.
Nothing wrong with that.

Reginald got banned because he trolled in the forums.

Nope.
Guys from riot randomly watched his stream, it's only fair if he gets banned with 100% evidence of trolling and making his team lose the game.
You can't really expect Riot to supervise every single stream to ban people.

And Reginald and HSGG didnt get banned ingame, only in the Forums.
