Riot Games has announced that the developer has completed its investigation into reports of cheating at the League of Legends World Playoffs and will be fining one team, Azubu Frost, $30,000, which is 1/5 of the team's tourney winnings to date.


The fine will be donated to a Korean charity.

However, the team's cheating did not directly affect the tournament standings, so the results will be allowed to stand.

Riot also found three other teams guilty of “unsportsmanlike” behaviour, but Riot has chosen to issue warnings instead.

Cheating at tournaments... don't these people ever learn.

1. It is not professional to do something like this, they should be ashamed to even call themselves good players.
2. How did these guys think they would get away with not being caught? I mean if players get caught online, doesn't it make any sense that a tournament would have even more intense security or awareness.
