  • UMass Amherst had a player not on their Active Roster share the account of one of their players in an official College Season match against McMaster University on 2/19.
  • As a result, the school, the rostered players, and the team’s manager are disqualified from the 2022 College Season and suspended for the rest of the season.


It was determined that a Andrew “Deathwalker222” Wong, a UMass student, competed under Fabian “EU Red” Suri-Payer’s account during their Round 5 loss against McMaster. When presented with evidence, the involved players and team managers confessed to the incident.

Ringing is a serious offense. It misleads opponents who have prepared for the match, it circumvents roster rules meant to create a fair playing field, and it breaks trust with fans, players, and the league itself.


2022 College LoL Season Rules Ringing. Playing under another player’s account or soliciting, inducing, encouraging or directing someone else to play under another player’s account.
