League of Legends streamer Ashkan “TF Blade” has explained the reason behind Riot Games’ decision to remove him from the League Partner Program.

Initially, TF Blade was put on a probationary period in March 2020 due to his behavior, later it was extended to June. It was no confirmed to TF Blade that he has been removed from the LPP.

The League Partner Program is a project where popular community members obtain special rewards for promoting League of Legends such as giveaways, special promotions, and more.

On July 29, TF Blades shared live on stream an email he received from Riot Games confirming that he was removed from the program, and explaining the reason behind the decision.

“After taking time to review, we’ve determined that there hasn’t been the necessary improvements expected from our League Partners,” they said in regards to his probationary period. “Therefore, effective immediately, you have been removed from the League Partner Program.”

The email also adds that “additionally, you will be prohibited as a guest on channels that are co-streaming the LCS or Academy until the end of the 2020 season.”

TF Blade was frustrated by Riot Games’ decision saying that they had “no proof” that he hasn’t made improvements to his behavior, he also said “they can’t just come accusing me of being this guy that hasn’t improved his attitude and he’s toxic,” he also added that they haven’t explained why he was banned and that he “just doesn’t like to be accused.”

The email adds that in June 2021 they will enable a review for his behavior and content to assess if reinstatement of privileges is possible. 

This means TF Blade will be out of the LPP for almost a year, and there are no guarantees that he will be added back to it.
