Quintin “Quin69” shared on Twitter today that he was permanently banned from League of Legends after buying a new account to bypass the 14-day suspension he received yesterday.
The suspension he received yesterday was due to him “int-ing,” a phrase the League community uses which means intentionally losing or dying in-game. The reason for him purposefully losing was because he was constantly suffering from enemies and friendly players “stream sniping” him, meaning they would watch his stream while playing against him.
This gave them insight on whatever Quin and his team were doing. While stream sniping is a banable offense in League, the automated ban system can’t do anything about it unless players report the snipers, which certainly wasn’t going to happen since he was in a game filled with them.
Int-ing, on the other hand, is something that many players will immediately report, as it ruins the game for everyone involved.
Quin69 permabanned on LoL after bypassing suspension
That’s exactly what happened after Quin69 went AFK (away from keyboard) many times in multiple matches, being handed a 14-day suspension from the automated system. While he was upset that he was banned, he quickly purchased a new account to bypass the ban, which is a very serious offense against League’s terms of service.
While purchasing an account may not seem like a banable offense, the fact that he bought the account to bypass his existing ban definitely violates Leagues rules and that too, when he was streaming himself playing the game earlier in the day.
He announced the news on Twitter by sharing a cropped screenshot of the ban notification, claiming that this was due to him being harassed by players exploiting the ban system.
In most other situations, his fans would try and defend him and try to get League to unban him, but considering his actions leading up to this permaban, they were quick to criticize his framing of the situation.
Many went on to reply to the tweet to leave their comments of disappointment, with some saying that if the suspension was unjust, he could have simply talked to the support team to get it removed instead of illegally purchasing a new account.
While the status of Quin69’s main account is unknown as of now, it wouldn’t be surprising if it was also given a permaban in the near future.
