Philippines’ Wild Rift team Amihan Esports has officially been banned by Riot Games for a whole year from participating in all esports events.The Filipino organization illegally included Karl “AMI Karlll” Ken Bautista in their Wild Rift squad by forging documents to qualify him for the Wild Rift SEA Icon Series. The tournament has a strict set of rules and regulations, where 17 years is the minimum age restriction cap.Damn….Amihan had one of the best teams in SEA. This will serve as a lesson for everyone out there who tries to forged documents or break Riot Rules in general. They don’t joke while taking actions.
