League of Legends logo

Finally one company has decided to punish cheaters, and not only by disqualifying them but also fining them $30,000. Riot Games, a company that created one of the most played PC games ever The League of Legends, has made a decision after thorough investigation of the Korean team, Azubu Frost (AzF). They have been found guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct. This announcement came straight from Riot VP of eSports Dustin Beck “Based on our investigation, the Azubu Frost incident is the only one where we determined there to be tangible impact; we believe other members of AzF modified their gameplay based upon the information gained. We don’t believe, however, that these actions decided the winner of the game.”
