However that will all change. RedBeard & bitingpig posted on the forums earlier that "IWillDominate is ineligible to play in the League of Legends Championship Series for a period of one year. This suspension shall commence immediately." One can only assume this will mean he is removed from the active roster of Dignitas as well, due to the fact that the Season 3 Championship Series will be a large part of the tournament scene this upcoming year. Riot has stated this decision was not an easy one to make, but they have said Dominate has ignored numerous warnings and continued his toxic behaviour.
The pro-player mindset of being 'immune' to bans has been shattered. Riot has shown they are willing to stand by their word, even if the community is not pleased with the decision. I for one think this shows incredible integrity on Riot's behalf. We wish Dominate all the best on whatever path he takes, but today it seems that path will not include League of Legends.
I'm the ACM for LoL.NA. I think one of the best things about E-Sports is the connections and communities that are built around the game. My hope is that we can get E-Sports on the same level of traditional sports in the broader world's minds.
