Actions have consequences in the real world, and Ocelote has found out that some of those are not tied to 8 weeks. They call for some self-improvement too.

This year has been nothing but one scandal after another in the eSports world of League of Legends , and very few of those were caused by Riot Games . Though, there have been misogyny lawsuits directed their way as well.

One of the big ones has seen Carlos "Ocelote" Rodriguez celebrating a G2 victory with Andrew Tate , one of the most notorious people on social media.

On September 18, 2022, G2 Esports announced that its Supervisory Board had mutually agreed with Carlos Rodríguez that he would take eight weeks of leave as CEO and suspend his earnings during that time. 

However, as Riot Games explained recently, one of the season 2022 LEC rules are that “Team Managers/Members may not give, make, issue, authorize or endorse any statement or action having, or designed to have, an effect prejudicial or detrimental to the best interest of the League, Riot Games or its affiliates, or League of Legends, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of the League.”

Unfortunately, that is exactly what Carlos "Ocelote" Rodriguez has done, and is now facing the consequences. Aside from step[ping down from his position and selling his G2 share due to pressure, he must also take part in sensitivity and executive training, provided by someone not affiliated wit G2, Carlos or Riot Games, before he is allowed to take part in any LoL eSports position again.

As it stands now, that doesn't seem to be on Carlos' agenda, and without it, we will never see him take another position again.
