: Hey Sickmind, Your account was locked temporarily because we saw suspicious activity on it after a long period of inactivity. Often we see less scrupulous people attempt to gain access to very old accounts which they then sell on the "black market" or use for botting purposes. Since your account was level 6 it seems to me like they intended to turn it into a "bot" and mindlessly play games till 30 before they'll sell it to someone else. Support will be able to recover the account for you once they reach your ticket.

I'm going to be applying to animation programs and SCAD was one of the schools I was looking into. I thought it was an amazing experience as grueling as it was. Many sleepless nights and about a bajillion sketches later I am actually pretty decent. I specialized in 3D but you are exposed all aspects from figure drawing, 2D animation, rigging, production, you touch on just about everything. The instructors are top notch professionals culled from the industry, I had teachers from Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar etc. As far as the job market goes it can be very competitive, since graduation I have been earning a living doing editing and motion graphics for the Ad and Film Industry, both things I picked up in school and I still use the principals of animation all the time. In hindsight because of how much advertising and film uses Motion Graphics I would have changed my major to that as opposed to just Animation personally, there is tons of money to be made in ads. EDIT: I thoght the MOME (Motion Media) kids were way cooler to hang with then the Animation nerds lol. I'm a huge nerd... but woah it gets scary haha.
: This is absolutely not why your post was removed. He has a tendency to bash Riot for imagined wrongdoings. Please refer to my post.
I understand, I was only going to mention it if they asked me if I played LoL. (I'd say "Well I did..." haha) It's no biggie, but if I did indeed eff up and get myself compromised shame on me, I am really careful about that.
: > there has been waves of accidental bans People can't keep their own login information safe and get banned for other people doing things on their account, or they are cheating and lying about far more often than the ban was an accident. If you simply have not been playing and got banned, it's probably because your information got out (likely a phishing site or poor name/password choices) and your account was compromised. > What I have gathered is that support is lacking The Help & Support board is for technical issues. If you need help with an account inquiry (such as this) you need to submit a ticket, which you have, and be patient with getting a reply because it can take a few days depending on the backlog. Moderation is physically incapable of moving posts; the boards simply do not currently support that. The reason they wanted you to post in PB&M is because this is where you get insight into why you were banned (though just a ticket is the better course).

Nah i'm old school and I know how to keep my accounts and passwords more than safe. Regarding the inability to move posts that's just shoddy in this day and age.

: its because if you put it in help and support a rioter actually has to respond to you. if they make you put it in pb&m they can continue to stonewall you
That's crazy... the funny thing is I am a recent animation grad from SCAD and RIOT is actually recruiting us here... I'm definitely going to mention this.
: Banned for using 3rd party programs but i didn't used them,didn't even got a warning
I was banned today and I haven't played in years, and when I did I certainly did not do anything....
