History

Rich Gang qualified for the 2015 OPL Split 1 with a first-place finish in their qualification group. However, over the course of early 2015, three members of the team, Paws, Dayshifted, and Rich Homie Dre, were banned from competing in the OPL for varying reasons, mostly relating to behavioral issues. On March 20th, Riot Oceania announced that the entire team was to be removed from competitive play, due to having "shown a lack of institutional governance over their players represented by the three separate player suspensions."[1] At the time of their suspension, the team was in 6th place with a 3-7 record, ahead of Team 4Not OCE and behind Avant Garde.

Rich Gang had to forfeit the remainder of their games in the OPL, and their spot in the next split would be automatically filled by the best challenger team. Players who did not receive suspensions were allowed to join other teams and continue playing League of Legends professionally. The organization Rich Gang is no longer be allowed to own a competitive league of legends team, and the owner of the team Chennyboy is not allowed to own a professional League of Legends team ever again.

The day after the permanent ban of the team, Destiny released a vlog explaining what had happened with the team.[2]
