    Over the past couple days there has been a lot of banning and unbanning and I want to give everyone the information on top of what the action center said.

    What initially started with a ban for a demigod glitch, Cubs, led to two managers of Toronto, Coach and Tom, being banned as well because with the evidence that was at our hands at the time, it appeared that they withheld the information and used it in a malicious manner to blackmail Cubs.

    Upon appeal, it became evident, through more evidence, that more people knew about the glitching and it was further assumed that more people should be banned thus resulting in two more players being banned and a reducing of bans for Tom and Denham. All bans were then 1 season.

    Then even more evidence came forth showing that one of the players that had been banned had sent the information to staff, to which by poor word choice from that staff member, resulted in an assumption that someone was going to file an action center, when nobody actually did. With all this knowledge now then it was determined that no one besides the glitcher deserved to be banned since everyone involved tried to do the right thing and get the information to staff hands. Denham’s ban was then changed to a conduct unbecoming ban for how he went about bringing up this information in managers chat on top of other reports of non-responsible behavior as a manager. That Ban is for one season and comes with a No Management List until it is removed. Cubs has a 2 season ban and No Management List as well. These are the only two people punished in the entire situation.

    Overall the situation was very poorly handled by staff and I. There was a lot of quick to act decisions which in the moment were right but overall need to be slowed down in order to make the right judgment the first time and not have this happen where unnecessary people get banned for mistakes staff makes. I own up to that and will do a better job of conducting myself and staff going forward to ensure we minimize these mistakes.

    After reviewing this case with upper LG management it has been determined that the CoC against Staff will be dismissed because Lag Shots did not report it at the time which falls under the "Searching back thru the Chat Box Archive and looking for possible violations will not be accepted, a screenshot of the actual comment in the chat box itself is required" section of the CoC and under the 2 week statute of limitations because these violations aren't considered "serious."

    That being said, it has also been determined through these filings/past transgressions of the accuser/ and through open admission from lag shots to another user that Lag shots is both breaching the CoC himself (Harassment), and breaching Article 4 Section 1.3 Conduct unbecoming (Breaching Code of Conduct, Blackmail, Confessing to Breaking Rules, and Circumventing the intent of a rule.)

    Lag shots openly admitted to another user that he would lie to Tris about his age in an effort to get Staff banned, and subsequently said that if this action didn't go his way he was going to go after other BoGs then after Nekski to get them removed.

    Due to these transgressions + past history is it is the determination of the LG staff that Lag shots should no longer be a part of the LG community and will be receiving a capital offense.

    It came to staff attention that players were missing stats and it was originally believed that the OCR was not properly reading the screenshots. Upon further review, it was determined that @YungTickle had actually went back over the past couple weeks and updating their stats for the better at the expense of his teammatess and other teams. The following is a list of edits that Tickle did over the entire season totally in 13 games:

    5/20 9PM v WSH: Tickle's entire statline was switched with another player
    5/20 11PM v NYK: The assists were incorrectly edited by Tickle
    5/27 10PM v UTA: Points, Assists, Steals, Fouls, Field Goals, 3 Pointers Made, Team Total Points, Team Field Goal Made, Team Field Goals, Team Field Goals Attempted were all incorrectly edited by Tickle
    5/27 11PM v PHX: Steals were incorrectly edited by Tickle
    6/3 9PM v MIN: Team Field Goal Attempted, Team 3 Pointers Made, Team Total Steals, Team 3 Pointers Attempted, Team Turnovers, Steals, Assists, Field Goals Attempted were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/3 10PM v MEM: Points, Field Goals, Field Goals Attempted, Team Field Goals Attempted were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/4 11PM v NYK: Field Goals Attempted, Team Field Goals Attempted were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/11 9PM v CHI: Assists were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/11 10PM v UTA: Assists, Field Goals, 3 Pointers Made, Points were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/11 11PM v TOR: Assists, Field Goals, Steals, 3 Pointers Attempted were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/17 9PM v OKC: Field Goals Attempted, 3 Pointers Attempted were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/17 10PM v NO: Points, Assists, Steals, Turnovers, Field Goals, Field Goals attempted, 3 Pointers Made, 3 Pointers Attempted were incorrectly edited by Tickle.
    6/17 11PM v LA: Points, Assists, Steals were incorrectly edited by Tickle.

    All these is easily viewable in the public logs attached to each of these games in question.

    After finding all this out it was determined that Tickle will receive a capital punishment for stat padding and conduct unbecoming. His stats will be removed from every game he was apart of. His teammates and opponents will have their stats restored to their original status. He will be placed on NML for the effective future.

    Regarding the bans of Raynor and Skizzostone:


    Sexual harassment is defined as behavior characterized by the making of unwelcome and inappropriate sexual remarks or physical advances in a professional or social situation. Any cases of sexual harassment will automatically result in a capital offense for the first violation and, if management, being put on the No-Management List indefinitely. A second violation will result in a site ban.



    Harassment of a member is deemed unacceptable and should stop immediately upon the request of the user who is reporting the harassment. An exchange between two parties will NOT be deemed harassment. The league defines harassment as: "A form of discrimination. It includes any unwanted physical or verbal behavior that offends or humiliates you that may or may not be repetitive in nature. Harassment is also considered unwanted communication after a user has been asked to leave the other party alone. Harassment also includes the situation whereby a user circumvents the other party's ability to block/ignore communication with the user who is currently harassing him or her." This includes but is not limited to: Repeatedly contacting a member after they asked you to stop. Continuously attacking or berating another member. Spreading true or untrue rumors or information about a member to other members of the community. Acting in an aggressive or intimidating manner towards another member. Generally, harassment is a behavior that persists over time, however, serious one-time incidents may also be considered harassment. In most general harassment situations the League requires a history of complaints filed on the user being accused of harassment to show a pattern of unwanted behavior.

    1st Violation: 1 Month Chat Mute Buyout Option 2 Season League Ban OR Removal from the Sanctioned Event / Tournament
