Here at Reign of Gaming, we’re dedicated to bringing you the best content that League of Legends has to offer, while also building a friendly and engaged community of intelligent players. In doing so, we encourage the community to freely post their theories and opinions regarding everything that the game encompasses, including champions, item builds, rune choices, and masteries. As such, there will always be conflicting opinions.
We are counting on the community to not only be open and constructive with their posts, but also to flag down those who aim to degenerate the Reign of Gaming experience by actively seeking mischief or employing extreme profanity. Actions that we simply will not allow. By helping us to enforce these expectations by clicking the “Report” button at the bottom of posts, we can see those who would deteriorate the quality of this community appropriately punished.
We thank you for doing your part to keep Reign of Gaming an open and positive source of learning and communicating, that we may better bring you the strategies and content that keep you at the top.

Infractions and You - The Penalty System of Reign of Gaming + thresholds for forum titles
Reign of Gaming runs on an infraction based ban system. If you break the rules, infraction points will be added to your account and when you reach certain thresholds, your account will be banned for a predetermined amount of time. Points are typically valid for 3 months, after which they will no longer apply to your account. Moderators are still able to see your expired infractions and may decide to apply harsher penalties to your account at their discretion.
First, I'll show you the possible infractions~ We can also make custom infractions and set the title, points and duration if we think it's necessary to use one.
You usually receive a message to inform you that you've been infracted. They look like this
In case one of the thresholds have been reached, the account will be banned. It's a Read Only ban so they're still able to visit the forums and see the posts but they aren't able to reply.
Since points stay for 90 days, bans add up quickly when there are several infractions in a short amount of time.
Since I didn't want to make a new thread for it, I'll also include the post thresholds for the forum titles~ Once you've reached 1500 posts, you can set a custom title with a maximum of 20 characters.
