The League of Legends pro Qingtian has been fined a month’s salary after fellow pro Faker voiced complaints about the actions of a solo queue player on stream, which turned out to be Qingtian.
Faker had been streaming some solo queue for his fans when he ran into an Aatrox user who wasn’t playing to the best of their abilities. Faker claimed the player was constantly throwing matches and had a bad mentality.
Top Esports released a statement on the organization’s official Weibo, claiming that the team detected Qingtian’s negative behavior, reprimanded him for his conduct, and deducted a month of his salary as punishment. The team will also be increasing its training and supervision over its players.
Qingtian also apologized in the same statement, saying that, “as a pro player, [he] should have been more conscious in safeguarding the environment of the game.” He said he’ll be taking each game more seriously moving forward.
