I posted in General Discussion, then it was suggested to me to also post here.

I'm here to discuss why I was banned, and why I feel it may have been a false positive.
Last week I received an e-mail letting me know:
I followed up through the support ticket the last week and after discussing with Player Support, their final answer was:
The confusion I had with my ban, as many others have within the past week. The only modifications I have made were the rebinding of my Champion Mastery Emote to my spells (Q,W,E,R,D,F), and I installed custom skins via a program called Wooxy. The programs only function is to add purely cosmetic changes such as custom skins for champions and maps as I screenshot below. While using the program I had three skins which were Demon Illoai, Dark Side Yi, and Surprise Party Rengar.
I did some poking around viewing my files to reassure myself of any modifications that I was not aware of, and my findings validated my suspicion. The only files affected/modified were the config file to rebind my Champion Mastery Emote, as well as some champion models due to the skins I had. For those that are interested, screenshots below with a short description of where the file path is.

**SO MANY LINKS IM SORRY**
With all that being said, I want to know opinions and hear from others affected, because to what I see and know about the usage of custom skins, they are more of a warning instead of an instant perma-ban by Riot.
Thank you for your time, and I hope you all Stay Victorious!
