League of Legends: Two LCS NiP Players Suspended For “Extremely Toxic Behaviour”

By   /   Jun 2, 2014

Two professional players, who until now, were a major part of NiP (Ninjas in Pajamas) have had their LCS careers suspended by Riot Games due to “extremely toxic behavior.”

Mithy (Alfonso Aguirre Rodriguez) and Nukeduck (Erlend Holm) were found to be toxic in over 30 percent of their games, where they were often reported for racist remarks and verbal abuse. Mithy for one was also reported to have had left games over 30 times, which puts him in the top 1 percent of toxic players found in EUW.

Riot has always held discipline over everything and specially when it comes to professional League of Legends players. In the post on the official website, the players were found guilty in accordance to section 9.2.9 of the CS ruleset:

“A Team Member may not engage in any activity which is deemed by the LCS to be immoral, disgraceful, or contrary to the conventional standards of proper ethical behavior.”

As a result the players are suspended from both the League Championship Series and the Challenger Series until the end of 2014. The Ninjas in Pajamas management has now let both of them go and will be looking to replace them as soon as possible.

This couldn’t have had happened at a worse time for Alex Ich. The former Gambit Gaming leader recently left the team to make his own, which was soon taken under the wings of NiP.

With two of its main players gone, we’ll have to see who the new replacements will be and if they will manage to connect with the remaining players.
