Tainted Minds fined $7K AUD by Riot Games Oceania

Riot Games responds to Tainted Minds LoL situation

Riot Games has issued a competitive ruling and fined the Tainted Minds organisation $7,000 AUD after investigations found administration violated certain contractual obligations when it came to their pro players, coach and manager.

“In conjunction with Riot Oceania, we have found Tainted Minds to be in violation of certain contractual obligations when it came to their pro players, coach and manager—specifically not making payments in the timeframe required within League rules and not providing hardware as specified within contracts with the team’s manager and coach. These contractual failings mean that Tainted Minds is subject to a fine of $7,000 AUD.”

The competitive ruling has also mentioned that Riot Games Oceania won’t be expelling Tainted Minds from the OPL as the organisation has “made efforts in good faith to correct ongoing issues based upon player feedback and otherwise fulfilled obligations” mentioned in the release.

Riot Games has also mentioned “it’s clear that there were a number of failings on Riot’s part in the handling of the matter that we can learn from on their behalf.”

As this present moment, none of the players in question or the former coach are listed in the Global Contract Database as a member of Tainted Minds.
