Understanding Different Ban Types FAQs

Getting banned in League of Legends can be tough but it is a way to help you understand why improving your behavior is important to playing.

 

PERMABANS

 

CAN MY PERMABAN BE REMOVED?

Permabans are almost never removed. Usually by the time you have reached being permabanned, you have already been banned before. You were aware that your behavior was unacceptable according to the Terms of Use and the Summoner’s Code. Bans coming from the Instant Feedback System are generally not lifted or adjusted. Correctly placed penalties will not be removed.

 

I WASN'T PLAYING DURING THAT GAME! CAN'T YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?

Remember that you are fully responsible for all activity made on your account, and if suspensions or bans are incurred we will not be able to modify them. If you feel that your account may have been compromised, please see the following Knowledge Base article for more information and instructions to help recover your account: Account Recovery Guide.

 

WHY DID I GET PERMABANNED?

You got permabanned because you continued your disruptive behavior. Usually by the time you have reached being permabanned, you have already been banned before. During each of these bans, you have been given your chat logs or other kinds of evidence that have led to the bans to help you learn and improve your own actions.

 

I DON’T DESERVE THE BAN! ANOTHER PLAYER DESERVES IT.

We can not discuss other players’ actions with you but you can always report them at end of game and mute them when in game. There is no excuse for raging back or responding to people trying to get you to tilt. You are the only one responsible for your actions and your words which is what we are trying to address with these bans.

 

WHAT I SAID IN GAME DIDN’T DESERVE A BAN.

We work with the overall community and within our own company guidelines to identify what disruptive behavior is and what the consequences for those behaviors should be. We understand that it can be difficult to know where the line is, which is why we provide chat logs and we have a few tiers in the ban process in order to allow for you to learn and grow.

 

Other Account Bans

 

WHY DID I GET A BAN?

You received a ban because the way you acted in game was deemed inappropriate. When you log into the client, you should have received your chat logs that exemplifies the behavior that lead to your ban. Use these chat logs to improve your communication with your teammates and opponents to avoid a future ban. You can always mute and report others at end of game so there is no value in arguing with them while in game.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET BANNED AGAIN?

Depending on what ban you just received, you might get another time locked ban or your account is at extreme risk of getting permabanned. Use your ban length to reflect on how to improve your behavior while playing in League of Legends.
