: Unfairly banned
Well guys, I now have no idea at all why my account is banned: http://postimg.org/image/z8pxxkxw7/ To me it looks like I have been banned for no reason at all. This sucks :/

: Maybe the skin changer thing is not authorized by riot. There has been at least 3 people that I know this week who had the same problem. Please do contact riot about this via support ticket if you have any questions. I believe they won't unban your account however. Sorry about that =(. Next time if you ever get a new account please DO NOT use any 3rd party program and take the risk.
Yeah man, I would not risk it again, just didn't think using custom skins would ever get me banned tbh as it is only cosmetic and not altering the way the game is played out :(

: Maybe re-title your post as, fairly banned don't download third party programs as they can get you banned for exploitation. Me posting on forums twice about this ban that was completely fair, did not change the outcome at all. -also I am sorry if you did get banned just for a skin changer but I mean, like IAkeno said, you took the risk and paid the price
I get that using one is at my own risk, but they are telling me that I was benefiting from the use of an exploit. To me, that wording means that I have been caught using something that has given me an advantage over over players.

: Got this reply from them today: https://gyazo.com/00c63f5550c0e9d7840996f5a21450f6 I think it is pathetic how they are unable to enlighten me, and even worse that I am only worth a copy paste message.
This is my second response: http://s31.postimg.org/vpeackq2z/Screenshot_2016_04_23_08_14_27.png They are saying I have been using an exploit, however I know for a fact that I haven't been. What can I do guys?

: Let me say it again It's Rito, if Rito is losing money to even the smallest things, they can get angry and ban you for not paying to play their free to play game. About 40% of 3rd party bans are from skin changers, 60% of those skin changers are mk lol
I don't understand why you keep mentioning MK
Talon12 (OCE)
: "I don't think a program used to change my skin affects the game play at all?" A skin changer is a 3rd party mod, therefore it is bannable. Rito wants their money, and no free skin modding system is gonna take that from them, hence ban.
I understand that, however the thread that the other guy linked me states that skin changers aren't strictly bannable hence a permanent ban over that without any prior warnings seems a bit harsh tbh. It's not as if I haven't spent money on the game, I have had this account since January 2012 and have spent more than my fair share on the game.

: Why would you use MK LoL Its a 3rd party mod, and you got banned for it, take a think, its your fault
Can you atleast pretend you read the thread before posting something silly

: Hello, Yes the exact same thing happened to me. a rioter got on to me not being very helpful at all. Could we please have our accounts back we did nothing wrong. Shazu
I got a response this morning that was a copy paste basically saying that I am banned but they can't tell me why.
Erøse (OCE)
: Maybe naming the program can help so that I can do some research on it. Some harmless 3rd party program can trigger the system which then alerts rito and automatically ban you because of the system misinterpreting the harmless 3rd program as a cheating program. Please do tell me the name of the program so I can give you further details about the program you are using
LolPro Skins or something along those lines.
Ninox (OCE)
: As I said I don't know all the details, if you name the program maybe I can tell you if something has changed with it, otherwise following through with support is your best bet for getting an answer,
Yeah I am currently waiting for a response from support. I don't think they are situated in Australia, as I usually get a response around 1am.
Ninox (OCE)
: It does modify client files though, which is very much a "use at your own risk" scenario. Riot don't normally ban just for skin changers, but if something disallowed was added to the program that could trigger it. I don't have all the details here I'm afraid, all I cay say is that the 3rd party bans are generally speaking the most accurate, so intentional or not, it's unlikely it's a false positive. Support is his best bet, but no guarantees on them being able to give any info other than a yes it was legitimate or no it wasn't.
As I have stated previously, this program has no other features anywhere other than for skin purposes.
MeiBei (OCE)
: Atm, Skin changing applications are being monitored. MK recently has been removed for it is now a 3rd party program because even though it changes your skin, it also has jungle timers etc. At the moment, I do not know what program you are using but if you did get banned, I assume its not allowed. Anyways, Goodluck on getting your account back!
Yeah I have heard about the problems with that program, however I can assure you that this program is solely used just for the skins and does not offer any additional features - if it did I would not have been using it. No point risking 4 years of progress for something that stupid imo.

: Have you used *anything* that affects the game files? Let me just be clear and say that when I say "anything" I do actually mean "anything and everything", not just things that would give you an advantage over other players. When you get right down to it, it can be quite difficult for the Rioters and the automated systems to differentiate between what gives an advantage and what is simply aestetic. Riot has even stated that skin/VO "mods" (and the like) are a "use at your own risk" situation, if I remember correctly, *because* they can't always tell if something that interacts with the game files is giving an unfair advantage to a particular player.
I have not used anything like that, it is just a program which lets you look at and choose a skin, nothing more than that.
Erøse (OCE)
: Skin changer? Hmmm.. you're right, it does not affect the gameplay whatsoever. Please do send a support ticket to riot concerning this problem and do send only ONE. Sending multiple tickets can cause longer response time. Goodluck in retrieving your account back :D
I already have sent one, was just posting to see if this has happened to anyone else.
Erøse (OCE)
: You sure about this? Maybe you used a program that you thought does not affect the gameplay but actually does.
I don't think a program used to change my skin affects the game play at all?
Noumea25 (OCE)
: Probably got busted cheating. Probably starting a thread thinking you will get a warning or something. One of two things has happened. 1. You've cheated - you deserve your ban and it wont be lifted 2. Someone has cheated on your account - you are responsible for your account and actions performed on it so your ban wont be lifed. #getrekt Wow you lose a lot and only got gold 4 with cheats. well done.... haha.

: Just got banned for no reason?
I had a look at that list prior to posting this thread. I have in fact used a program that lets me use skins but that is all - in that thread it says these such programs are allowed.
