Kim "Clid" Tae-min: No more LOL, what's next?

Due to indecent behavior, the 255000-Dollar-Jungler has to sit out for 12 months.

🎮Clid seeking new gaming horizons

Some say e-sport careers can come to a quick end, especially if you act like a rookie unfamiliar with the internet’s unwritten rules. For Kim “Clid” Tae-min, it’s time to check out other games, ’cause LOL is off the table for him for a year.

From champ to benchwarmer

Clid had been killing it for the past five years. With Team T1 and Gen G., he reached the world championship semi-finals twice. But seems like the spotlight got to his head. His current team, Hanwha Life Esports, had already benched the former star-jungler. Reason? A rather loose lip and some inappropriate DMs to ladies, one of whom was even underage.

Riot Games says: “12 months off, buddy!”

Yep, the gaming world has little tolerance for such antics. Especially not when the main culprit is one of the scene’s top jugglers. Riot Games, the brains behind League of Legends, decided to ban Clid for a year from all competitions. And in South Korea, he’s facing an even longer 18-month ban for “ongoing sexual harassment, unprofessional behavior, and criminal offenses.”

But, worry not! Clid has the option to appeal against the ruling and attend courses to avoid such embarrassing conduct in the future. A teachable moment, huh? Only, his team doesn’t seem to miss him much. Without Clid, they barely missed out on the world championship.

When the real drama isn’t in-game but outside of it… Well, some folks just never grow up.
