Riot Games has issued an official statement approving the suspension of Carlos Rodriguez, former CEO of the G2 Esports organization for violating the code of conduct. The violations attributed to the ocelote are set forth by the code of conduct section of the LEC rulebook. That being said, Rodriguez left his post back in September after accepting all allegations of inappropriate behavior. It is noteworthy that a little earlier in the network there was a rumor that Riot Games coba forced ocelote to sell its stake in the organization G2 Esports.
This LEC rulebook, specifically Article 9.2.5, states the following:
Managers/team members may not give, make, publish, authorize or approve any statement or action that may be detrimental to the interests of the League, Riot Games or its affiliates or League of Legends, as determined in their sole and absolute discretion.
Following an investigation, organizers concluded that by linking Andrew Tate, known for his misogynistic views, to himself, G2 Esports and LEC on social media, Carlos Rodriguez engaged in activities that were detrimental to the interests of the League and Riot Games.

In consideration of the foregoing, Carlos Rodriguez is suspended from any leadership or operational position with a team or organization at or participating in Riot Games-sanctioned competitions for a period of eight weeks retroactive to September 18, 2022, taking into account the time for which he has already been suspended. In addition, ocelote will also be required to undergo conduct training from an independent third party within 120 days of the decision.
Recall that in September, the European cybersports organization G2 Esports announced the departure of Carlos Rodriguez from the post of CEO of the club. At first, the club removed ocelote from the post after the scandal broke out, but a few days later accepted the petition of Rodriguez himself and said goodbye to him.
If rumors are to be believed, the scandal surrounding Rodriguez’s persona has significantly affected the G2 Esports VALORANT discipline team. After a video leaked to the network, in which ocelote rests with Andrew Tate, the developer decided not to include the organization among the partners of VCT 2023.
