A Korean League of Legends streamer spent three hours locked in a ranked match with stream snipers earlier than being handed a 14-day ban by Riot.
Kim “kkyuahri” So-Hyun was streaming her Summoner’s Rift recreation on AfreecaTV, a Korean streaming service just like Twitch, when two gamers from her personal staff and two gamers from the enemy staff determined to lock her right into a prolonged match. With gamers from her personal staff clearing minions and informing the opposite staff of her whereabouts, the match was artificially prolonged to over three hours.
Makes an attempt to desert the match failed because of the majority voting in opposition to it, and kkyuahri was killed a grand whole of 120 occasions earlier than it was lastly over. It even appears like she gave up midway by way of and began taking part in a recreation on FIFA on the aspect.
Kkyuahri had stayed within the match with the hopes of not receiving a ban or timeout for going AFK, however she was later slapped with a 14-day ban from Riot. Presumably, it is an automatic ban, one triggered by a excessive dying rely or mass stories by her snipers. Kkyuahri additionally submitted her personal assist ticket to Riot. Frustratingly, her match was so prolonged it did not seem on League stats website op.gg, making it troublesome to simply show at a look what went down.
Whereas the practically nine-hour VOD has now vanished from Afreeca, a condensed 10-minute model has been uploaded to kkyuahri’s YouTube channel. A thread on discussion board FMKorea (opens in new tab) additionally clipped a few griefing moments occurring within the stream, plus an extra abstract from a Reddit put up (opens in new tab). In the long run, it appears like she performed some extra FIFA and jumped into extra League video games on a brand new account.
I’ve contacted Riot relating to the ban and if it has been reverted but, however the writer provided no remark.
