LoL imposes $1000 fine on G2 Esports for playing a Pro WoW Classic

The developers of the League of Legends, Riot Games, have pronounced a penalty against the organization G2 Esports. Because their top laner, Martin “Wonder” Hansen, was shown how he played World of Warcraft Classic. The LoL team thanks Riot.

What was the penalty? Through a tracker, you can see that Riot Games imposed a penalty of over $1000 against G2 Esports. That was on Friday, 13th September 2019 (via LEC Penalty Tracker).

Officially Riot Games says nothing about it, and the information is only that the punishment was for “Commercial Violation”.

From this information, one could not conclude what it is actually about. But from the reaction of the team, it becomes clear: Riot Games must have caught Top Laner Wunder playing WoW Classic in an official twitch stream, not privately.

Many thanks for the punishment!

This is how the team reacts: G2 eSports made a Twitter statement.

“Dear Riot Games, we’d like to thank you so much for punishing us after we showed that Wunder WoW Classic is playing. Now we finally have a good reason to uninstall the game from his PC.

Greetings, G2 eSport.”

When should have played miracles? That’s not clear. According to the Dotesports page, one suspects miracles could have looked into WoW Classic while a LEC broadcast was running.

That would have happened during an official riot stream. Understandably, the LoL developers don’t think it’s so cool.

WoW Classic is like Gamer-Kryptonite

That’s what’s behind it: G2 Esports and 23 other LoL teams are currently preparing for the LoL Worlds. That’s why the teams want to make sure that all players concentrate on LoL and do their best there.

LoL is time-consuming at this level, and the teams train many hours a day – playing against other top teams in “Scrimmages”. Some professionals from Asia know that they continue to play LoL even in their spare time, are somewhere in the solo cue and do nonsense there.

WoW Classic with its high addiction factor is something you can not only play for a few hours but is a real distraction: That’s gamer kryptonite.

Wunder had already said on his Twitter account that he gambles WoW Classic.

G2 eSports belongs to the 3 favourites of the LoL Worlds

What are the chances for G2 Esports at the Worlds? G2 Esports is currently considered to be the best team in Europe and one of the favourites for the Worlds. A betting office currently sees the teams’ chances of winning this way (via nicerodds):

-The favourite for victory is SK Telecom T1
-2nd place goes to Funplus Phoenix, the strongest team from China – they could dominate the league there 13-2
-And G2 Esports from Europe is already in 3rd place.

At the important LoL tournament “MSI” in May 2019, G2 Esports surprisingly prevailed against the Koreans of SKT1 in the semi-finals and won the tournament against the top team of the USA, Team Liquid.

Korean player Faker has already said he is looking forward to taking revenge on G2 Esports at Worlds 2019.

So G2 Esports have a good chance of going far at the Worlds, and if Wunder now stays away from WoW Classic, the chances are even better.
