Voyboy, Yassuo, Scarra, and even Chess.com weigh in on Hai’s probation from the League Partner Program

Content creators are calling out for change from Riot Games.
Voyboy, Yassuo, Scarra, and even Chess.com weigh in on Hai’s probation from the League Partner Program

One of North American League of Legends’ best-known names, Hai “Hai” Du Lam was recently punished by Riot Games for rather mildly telling a player off. Now, as a result, he’s on probation from the League Partner Program. 



The League Partner Program, an exclusive program only given to League of Legends content creators, comes with the benefits of free skins, access to unreleased content, invitations to Riot-sponsored League of Legends events, and the chance of official promotion by Riot. To many, the initial punishment of Hai is already unwarranted, and his probation is an unnecessary step too far.

Well-known streamer Joedat “Voyboy” Esfahani called for equality, asking for his own probation from the LPP and declared that he wouldn’t be participating at Twitch Rivals. Voyboy also expressed his concerns with Riot’s approach to toxicity in a video released not long ago.



Fellow streamer Hammoudi “Yassuo” Abdalrhman agreed with Voyboy, stating “WE WILL STAND FOR THIS INJUSTICE!” in his own tweet. Humorously, even Chess.com pitched in, agreeing with Voyboy despite not being involved with League of Legends in any way. 




Streamer William “Scarra” Li and one of Riot’s most popular play-by-play casters, Clayton “CaptainFlowers” Raines expressed confusion as well. 




Many others on Twitter called branded Riot's approach as a joke and derided the company for the contradictory approaches to Hai and Tyler “Tyler1” Steinkamp. Tyler1 is well known for his continued in-game toxicity, even after returning from an indefinite ban on all his League of Legends accounts. 

With a recent wave of criticism aimed at Riot and its inability to hold players and streamers accountable for their game-ruining actions, one wonders when -- if ever -- Riot will respond to these criticisms in a way that can satisfy the League of Legends community.
