Riot Games, publisher of the multiplayer online battle video game League of Legends, banned two players from the game in 2013. Nicolaj Jensen and Khaled Abusagr were banned due to “persistent toxic behavior and participation in DDoS attacks against other players.” Two years later, the ban is being lifted against Jensen. “Since his last review, Jensen has continued to demonstrate behavior in game that is well above the normal standards of good behavior across all of his accounts since at least January 2014,” reports Riot Games.
Abusagr, however, “continues to display unacceptably negative behavior without any significant progress toward reform. His most active account has been reported in 47 percent of his games in the last 90 days and 50 percent in the last 60. He’s received a total of 1830 reports in 590 games. 70 percent of which were for offensive language, verbal abuse or negative attitude. An audit of chat logs from games he has been reported in reveals consistently offensive, hostile, and homophobic rhetoric,” Riot wrote.
