Rissa senza dubbio EMENES sancisce la decisione dopo i commenti xenofobi della stella di C9 LoL
Cloud9's EMENES reprimanded by Riot Games for xenophobic remarks
Cloud9's mid laner, Jang "EMENES" Min-soo, has faced disciplinary action by Riot Games following xenophobic and derogatory remarks made during a ranked match in mid-September. Despite this, he has been allowed to participate in the upcoming World Championships.
Punishment and Training
On October 3rd, Riot Games fined EMENES $15,000 USD for his behavior. Additionally, the League of Legends publishers mandated that EMENES must undergo an "educational training course on professionalism" before the start of the 2024 LCS season.
Breach of Conduct
Riot Games determined that EMENES had violated Section 14.3.3 on behavior and conduct. The investigation found that his offensive and derogatory comments towards European League streamer Spear_shot were unprovoked. The streamer had not engaged in any behavior that would warrant such remarks during the match.
The investigation also revealed other instances of "behavioral misconduct" on EMENES' account, as well as concerning posts on social media.
Response and Warning
During the disciplinary proceedings, EMENES submitted a statement and publicly apologized for his conduct. Riot Games took these factors into account when deciding the appropriate course of action.
Although this is EMENES' first official offense according to Riot Games, he has a history of problematic behavior spanning multiple seasons and regions. Riot Games has warned him that any further violations may result in more severe penalties.
EMENES became frustrated during a League of Legends ranked match on September 15th, where he referred to Spear_shot as a "disgusting EU streamer" and told him to "go back to your country." EMENES later apologized on Twitter but continued to express his frustrations towards Spear_shot and streamers who, in his opinion, ruined the game for others by choosing different champions.
Precedents and Consequences
Historically, several players have faced suspensions for making racist remarks. Svenskeren received a three-match ban prior to Worlds 2014 for using a derogatory name as his Summoner name. Similarly, OnFleek was banned for three matches in 2020 for making a xenophobic statement during a solo queue match.
Upcoming World Championships
EMENES and Cloud9 have been in South Korea for a month in preparation for the World Championships. The Play-Ins stage will begin on October 10th, with Cloud9 participating in the Swiss stage starting on October 19th.
