Former CEO of G2 Esports Carlos "ocelote" Rodríguez is suspended from holding any managerial or operational position within a team or an organization in a Riot-sanctioned competition, or participation therein until November 13, 2022.

According to Riot Games' competitive ruling, in addition to the suspend, Carlos Rodríguez is required to complete sensitivity training and executive training. The training must be provided by an independent third-party that is unaffiliated with G2 Esports, the League or Carlos Rodríguez.

According to Riot Games and League of Legends, ocelote engaged in an activity detrimental to the best interest of the League and Riot Games in violation of the LEC Rules.

"By publicly associating on social media Andrew Tate, known for his misogynistic views, with himself, G2 Esports and the LEC, Carlos Rodríguez engaged in an activity which was detrimental to the best interest of the League and Riot Games. Consequently, Carlos Rodríguez breached Article 9.2.5 of the LEC Rules," Riot noted.

Due to Art. 9.2.5 of the LEC Rules, Team Managers/Members may not give, make, issue, authorise or endorse any statement or action having, or designed to have, an effect prejudicial or detrimental to the best interest of the League, Riot Games or its affiliates or League of Legends, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of the League.

The suspend was the result of the scandal with Tate's invitation to the G2 party and the ocelote's further behavior. In response to the claims of the community, he rudely objected that he would invite whoever he wanted to his parties and would not allow anyone to police his friendship.

However, later Rodríguez stepped down as G2’s CEO. Insiders claimed that the scandal had caused Riot Games to cancel G2’s invite to the Valorant franchise league.
