ROX Tigers mid laner Lee "Sylph" Jae-ha has been banned from competitive play, according to an official statement from Riot released Thursday.
According to Riot, Sylph was caught using an automated bot program in Co-op versus AI games to level an account to 30, which is against Riot regulations. Sylph will be banned from competitive play from Feb. 26, 2016 until Feb. 26, 2017.
The statement goes on to say that other sanctions could include up to a $5,000 fine and 250 hours of community service, although neither of these have been applied to Sylph as of yet.
Sylph, a substitute mid laner, had yet to play this year for the first-place ROX Tigers. The team has relied on starting mid laner Lee "KurO" Seo-haeng for all of their matches in their undefeated series run through the first round-robin of LCK Spring 2016.
