Thai League of Legends: Wild Rift pro player of INVATE Esports, Nattawut “Lenxx” Senarit, received a six-month ban from all official Riot Games esports events. The pro player is found guilty of “Ringing,” a violation of rule 8.1.1.6 of the Wild Rift SEA Icon Series Thailand Fall Season rulebook. The rule states that using someone else’s account or impersonating another account is forbidden. Lenxx is a jungler for INVATE Esports and was participating in the ESL Mobile Open 2021 Fall: Thailand, the Thailand esports circuit for the SEA Icon Series. INVATE Esports has now replaced Lenxx with a new jungler, Pongsatorn “Coldenfeet” Kornrat.

Thai pro player Lenxx banned for six months in official Wild Rift Esports for “Ringing”

ESL Thailand posted on 26th Aug 2021, that INVATE Esports’ jungler Lenxx is banned from all official Riot Games esports events for six months. The pro player is found guilty of 'Ringing' - boosting ranks and sharing player accounts. This is a violation of rule 8.1.1.6 of the Wild Rift SEA Icon Series Thailand Fall Season rulebook.

The rule specifically stated that “Playing under another player’s account or soliciting, inducing, encouraging, or directing someone else to play under another player’s account” is not allowed and is subject to punishment.

INVATE Esports is still allowed to compete in the tournament but will have to remove Lenxx from its roster. Coldenfeet will be playing on behalf of Lenxx for the duration of the ESL Mobile Open 2021 Fall: Thailand.

Here is the current roster of INVATE Esports;

  • Tanpong "CatType" Tungchoksongchai

  • Pasit "Bellbee" Keattichaidumrong

  • Pongsatorn "Coldenfeet" Kornrat

  • Weeravat "KazeTARuler" Baolorphet

  • Soragit "Whatthejes" Buranathanasin

INVATE Esports finished third place in the group stage of the ESL Mobile Open 2021 Fall: Thailand. The team will now crawl their way to the playoffs for a chance to participate in the upcoming Wild Rift SEA Championship 2021.

It will be interesting to see if INVATE Esports will be able to keep their momentum despite their abrupt roster change.
