Jankos unwisely brags about ducking fine for forgetting equipment
"Well, yesterday I forgot my stage mousepad and instead of admitting it and getting fined by my team, I didn't tell anyone and borrowed one from Player Management," he revealed.
The sneaky jungler noted that this 200 IQ strat helped him get away with it and save himself a bit of cash.
G2 Esports seemed amused by the entire situation, tweeting back that Jankos' public announcement was "pure alpha behavior," but not everyone was as entertained by the situation. Jankos' coach Fabian "GrabbZ" Lohmann jokingly called Jankos "not the sharpest tool in the shed" for tweeting about the situation.
"You will find the fine in the Code of Conduct," he said. "Hope the likes were worth it."
Jankos shot back: "I'm not paying a fine when my coaching staff clearly can't do their job, okay? It's after the fact."
G2 Esports was apparently in agreement with their player, informing GrabbZ that Jankos can't be fined after 12 hours.
LEC code of conduct and player warnings
Jankos wasn't the only player to avoid a fine for breaking the rules of either his team or the LEC. On January 23, the entire G2 Esports organization received a warning for violating the LEC's content policy, leading to a warning. Many other players saw a warning for "conduct unbecoming of an LEC team member," including Paul "sOAZ" Boyer and Konstantinos-Napoleon "FORG1VEN" Tzortziou.
The only player to currently have any real consequences for their actions in the 2020 season is Misfits Gaming's Matús "Neon" Jakubčík. He is currently suspended until February 21 for in-game toxicity.
In a statement, Riot Games said Neon's "usage of discriminatory language towards other players in the game is unacceptable and has no place in our competitive ecosystem.”
This is a violation of rule 9.2.4 of the LEC Rulebook, which states that no members of a team are allowed to offend anyone’s integrity through discriminatory or denigrating words and actions.
