Yu “XiaoWeiXiao” Xian, a pro League of Legends player, has been suspended after allegations that he was paid to boost another user’s account.
According to the dailydot, Xian’s team manager Alex Gu may have been involved, as the Paypal email address was linked to a Skype username used by Gu.
Hunter Leigh, esports manager at Riot Games, told the dailydot “We have spoken with XiaoWeiXiao regarding ELO boosting allegations. He has confirmed misconduct and is suspended pending investigation.”
Xian is the only one to have admitted to being in breach of the rules. Alex Gu will update the community with a statement at a later time.
