            Team, Player, Event & Organization News

            Riot & LCS:

            "TL;DR: Over the course of the investigation into the allegations made by players of Tainted Minds, we have interviewed players, team ownership, current and former team staff and Rioters, as well as reviewed written correspondence between all involved. 
            In conjunction with Riot Oceania, we have found Tainted Minds to be in violation of certain contractual obligations when it came to their pro players, coach and manager—specifically not making payments in the timeframe required within League rules and not providing hardware as specified within contracts with the team’s manager and coach. 
            These contractual failings mean that Tainted Minds is subject to a fine of $7,000 AUD.
            Due to the fact that Tainted Minds made efforts in good faith to correct ongoing issues based upon player feedback and otherwise fulfilled obligations, we won’t be expelling them from the OPL. We expect the organization to make a concerted effort to improve in these areas. We will be placing the org on competitive probation for a period of 6 months, during which time any further rulings regarding any material contractual violations with players or other team staff will result in expulsion from the OPL. 
            As of April 4, 2017, none of the players in question or the former coach are listed in the Global Contract Database as a member of Tainted Minds."
            "TL;DR: As part of a Riot investigation, it was discovered that Origen’s management had not signed compliant employment contracts with their Head Coach and the players on their substitute roster. Additionally, Origen had failed to set up a remuneration structure which is compliant with the Team Participation Agreement for all of their team members. These issues have now been resolved by Origen. For their prior non-compliance with the contract terms of the Team Participation Agreement, Origen will be fined 10,000€."
