League of Legends YouTuber Narrates His Story of Being Unfairly Banned by Riot Games

Riot Games has come under fire by a League of Legends Youtuber for unfair ruling against him. Professor Akali took to his official YouTube channel to shed light on incidents and events that led to his permanent ban. Generally, Moba players maintain an alternate account just to enjoy the game or experiment with new builds. This serves as a great way to not lose the precious matching-making rating on the main account, while still enjoying the game.

League of Legends YouTuber gets falsely banned

Recently, content creator Professor Akali shared his story of being unfairly banned. He also shed light on the previous Riot Games system, which makes use of the community. In his 9- minute long video, the creator gave a complete rundown.

It is common knowledge that three major strikes against an account usually result in a permanent ban. In the video he gave the fans a rundown of other incidents that caused him unfairly serve a bannable strike.

It feels quite unjustified to get banned from the game for inadequate reasons. In one particular game, he came across a 4-stack of toxic players, who caused his account to be served with a temporary ban.

In Moba titles, picking a lane to play, and a particular role is one of the most important steps. Players usually call out the particular role they wish to play during the picking phase. The YouTuber had to fight with these players to pick his role, and they also reported him within the game to exact revenge. As a result, Riot Games banned him for the second time

He suggested that the previous system ‘The Tribunal’ unfairly banned people by asking the community to vote for bans or not. Citing toxic community members as a grave issue, Professor Akali deemed the Tribunal system very unreliable.

He admitted that he indeed made a few mistakes here and there, but none were ban-worthy. He recalled another instance, where he used the basketball terminology ‘Dunked’ with the opposing team. However, he insisted that he never said anything over the top, which could warrant a ban.

The latest incident with the word ‘Dunk’ served as the last nail in the coffin for his main account. However, he claims he has done nothing major in the past several years, which is quite puzzling to him. The YouTuber also recalled one of his teammates using a curse word, but it did not produce the same result.
