Through an investigation carried out by League Officials, evidence demonstrated that Krüger displayed consistent negative behaviour in ranked play over the course of the past months. He was initially issued a warning by League Officials on the 5th of January when he was evaluated as an LCS substitute, but has since continued to exhibit ongoing misconduct unbecoming of a professional player. Krüger’s continuous usage of discriminatory and denigrating language towards other players in the game is unacceptable. Given the frequency, quantity and severity of said misconduct we are suspending Krüger for an extended period of time from Riot-affiliated competitive play.
Krüger has violated rules 8.2.2 and 8.2.4 of the EU Rulebook. Based on the Player’s actions and the punishment prescribed in the Global Penalty Index, specifically the section “Ongoing Misconduct”, he will be suspended for the next 4 competitive months.
