Understanding Getting Permabanned

When you are permabanned from League of Legends, you are no longer allowed to play League of Legends using this account.

At this point, you have:

  • Been given your chat logs that resulted in the ban
  • Been banned previously for poor behaviour
  • Are aware that by continuing this behaviour, you were at risk of being permabanned

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.

Please keep in mind, even if you did not receive several warnings, it is possible to bypass the Two Week or Permanent suspensions based on the severity of your behavior in the game. Excessive negative behavior can result in a permanent ban at any time without any prior warning or restriction.

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.

The other reality is that the behavior displayed was so negative or disruptive that it breached the Summoner's Code or Terms of Use. Such behavior can be severe enough to bypass all other warnings and result in the immediate banning of your account.

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 the end of a game and mute them when in-game. Regardless of how others act, there is no excuse for raging back or responding to people trying tilt you. You are the only one responsible for your actions and your words.

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. Again, this is either not the first time you have been told your actions were inappropriate, or your actions were severe enough to warrant an immediate ban. 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.
