Perma-Suspended for use of Custom Skins?

**NOTE:** I posted in General Discussion, then it was suggested to me to also post here. Link to OP: http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/GD/0dFGwM3b-banned-for-use-of-custom-skins **Alrighty Summoners!** I'm here to discuss why I was banned, and why I feel it may have been a false positive. {{sticker:zombie-nunu-tears}} Last week I received an e-mail letting me know: _Your account: drock55555 was banned due to the use of malicious 3rd party programs or modifications to your League of Legends client. We believe that all players should play on equal footing in an effort to promote competitive sportsmanship. You should be aware that modifying your League of Legends client is against the Terms of Use: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/legal/termsofuse. We hope you can see that it is unsatisfying to play against other players who are using a tool to gain an advantage over others._ I followed up through the support ticket the last week and after discussing with Player Support, their final answer was: _I must reiterate that we cannot comment on programs that we do not officially support. However, our system did detect usage of exploits that seriously violated our Terms of Use. In the end, we will not be changing our decision regarding this case._ 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. http://i.imgur.com/cNayiT4.png http://i.imgur.com/1R862v6.png http://i.imgur.com/Im7bzDP.png 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. http://i.imgur.com/u9wU6t0.png (C:\Riot Games) http://i.imgur.com/GktWfGs.png (C:\Riot Games\League of Legends) http://i.imgur.com/4Su6aEj.png (C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Config) http://i.imgur.com/YfsXhvL.png (C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Config\Champions) http://i.imgur.com/KC6ff0U.png (C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Logs) http://i.imgur.com/CYvHDMD.png (C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS) http://i.imgur.com/P4xBYjj.png (C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\temp) **SO MANY LINKS IM SORRY** {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}} http://i.imgur.com/YWpiWmE.png (C:\Wooxy) http://i.imgur.com/qz5nM5z.png (C:\Wooxy\skins) http://i.imgur.com/dQRcTeS.gifv (C:\Wooxy\backup\l3cdn.riotgames.com\releases\live\lol_air_client\0.0.1.31\assets\images\champions) http://i.imgur.com/HrKOMs3.png (C:\Wooxy\images) http://i.imgur.com/UtZKNwz.png (C:\Wooxy\images\champions) 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! -Derrick/VG Drock55555
