Even professionals can behave insolently. On Sunday, game developer Riot Games released a list of professional players who were fined for their behaviour when playing the League of Legends. Three players and one coach at the League of Legends World Championship in South Korea were fined various amounts for negative solo queue behaviour, and 12 other players have received warnings for similar behaviour, Riot Games announced Sunday.

Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao, the Royal Never Give Up AD carry who is widely considered the best player in the world entering the tournament, was fined $2,000 for griefing his teammates and intentionally feeding on an account that did not belong to him, the latter of which is strictly prohibited under the LoL terms of service, according to Riot Games.

Gambit Esports jungler Danil “Diamondprox” Reshetnikov and Invictus Gaming top laner Kang “TheShy” Seung-lok were both fined $1,000 following in-game reports filed against them, according to a statement from Riot. In Diamondprox’s case, his prior disciplinary history was cited. TheShy was fined for intentionally feeding and toxic language.

Afreeca Freecs coach Choi “iloveoov” Yeon-sung was fined $1,500 as well. He was reported in more than 70 percent of his solo queue games for negative behaviour. This, combined with a prior disciplinary action in League Champions Korea, led to the fine. In addition, a dozen preliminary warnings were issued to a list of players from various teams without fines as well.
