News just came across about Team Dignitas' jungle player IWillDominate getting the axe for repeated verbal harassment and other summoner's code infraction resulting in his account getting permanently banned from League of Legends. Furthermore Riot will extend this ban to the League of Legends Championship Series for a period of one year. This suspension shall commence immediately. Dignitas will have to search for a new jungle for the Riot salaried league, and it would only make sense that this would become a permanent replacement.
@dignitasODEE has confirmed on twitter that with IWillDominate banned, he will be replaced from the team. No other changes for S3.

League of Legends Competition Ruling
Player: Christian Rivera / IWillDominate
Date of Ruling: 12.03.12
Subject: Suspension; Violations of Summoner’s Code
Recently, IWillDominate was brought before the Tribunal for consideration of a permanent ban. The majority of players voted to punish and today the Riot player behavior team has approved the ban after review of the case.
IWillDominate has been in Tribunal nine times and punished eight times, including the most recent permanent ban. He has a persistent record of in-game harassment, verbal abuse, offensive language and negative attitude.
Despite the punishments and official warnings, his harassment score has risen more than 30% from early August to the present date, placing him at the top of the list of North American pro players and among the worst 0.7% of all North American players.
There also have been repeated incidents of similar behavior outside the game.
The Summoner's Code establishes the standards of behavior for all League of Legends players.
IWillDominate has consistently engaged in behavior which violates the letter and spirit of the Summoner’s Code.
His persistent tendency to engage in verbal abuse and insults, his lack of cordial demeanor, and his treatment of less-skilled players is unacceptable for any player, especially a high-profile professional player who has a regular opportunity to lead the community by example.
IWillDominate has violated the letter and spirit of the Summoner’s Code in a systematic fashion.
IWillDominate is ineligible to play in the League of Legends Championship Series for a period of one year. This suspension shall commence immediately.
In addition, all other existing known accounts used by IWillDominate are permanently banned.
What do you think of the ruling RoG'ers?
