Competitive Ruling: Matúš “Neon” Jakubčík

Information from Riot Games.

TL;DR:

Matúš “Neon” Jakubčík, currently on the roster of Misfits Gaming’s ERL Team, Misfits Premier, in the LFL, has repeatedly exhibited unacceptable behaviour in his games. As a result he will be suspended for the first half of the Spring Split in 2020.

CONTEXT

Through an investigation carried out by League Officials, evidence demonstrated that Jakubčík displayed negative behaviour in League of Legends in multiple instances over the course of the past months. After his accounts were flagged for inappropriate behaviour during routine checks, he was initially issued a warning in a call on the 2nd of September where League Officials set clear expectations regarding Jakubčík’s behaviour. Unfortunately, he has again exhibited misconduct unbecoming of a professional player. Jakubčík’s usage of discriminatory language towards other players in the game is unacceptable and has no place in our competitive ecosystem.

RULING

Matúš “Neon” Jakubčík has violated rule 9.2.4 of the LEC Rulebook and article 11 of the LFL Rulebook and will be suspended from all Riot-affiliated competitions until the 21st of February 2020.
