- Player Involved: Waldrom
- Region: Europe
- Subject: Smite Console League — Misconduct on Social Media
- Date of Ruling: 8/13/2018
Information: Our league operations staff recently discovered that SCL player Waldrom posted and shared inappropriate content on Twitter numerous times over the course of the season. After being warned several times by the Skillshot league operations team to refrain from sharing such content, the player continued to make inappropriate posts on his social channel.
Ruling: The Skillshot staff has concluded that administrative action is necessary, since previous warnings were disregarded. The player will be fined $500 and will be competitively banned from all official Hi-Rez tournaments for the remainder of the season.
