Sixteen players banned in Oceanic region
Riot OCE revealed that 16 players will be banned from competitive play, for at least two weeks, for breaking Riot rules spanning multiple incidents.
Such investigations, undertaken by OCS officials, are a routine part of any competitive season, and any rulings should be made in advance of the season start. In this instance, due to the roster submission deadline being two days before the season start, the time taken to review each submission, fully investigate any violations and issue bans has taken longer.
We are working with the teams affected to ensure they can continue to compete in the OCS, and are reviewing our roster deadlines for future competitions."

- Dmitry “Bdoink” Botov (Team Noxide) - two week ban
