LoL World Champion Fined 'Hundreds Of Thousands' For Leaking Information

LoL World Champion Fined 'Hundreds Of Thousands' For Leaking Information
Riot Games

Former League of Legends World Champion Kim "Doinb" Tae-Sang is quite notorious for having a slippery tongue on stream when he's not annihilating opponents in the mid-lane, and it appears that his leaky lips have gotten him in trouble with Riot Games once again.

The 25-year-old South Korean superstar won the 2019 World Championship with FunPlus Phoenix, beating the infamous G2 Esports roster with a crushing 3-0 sweep. 

But just like many other professional players, Doinb gets the low-down on upcoming information that is protected by disclosure agreements. Not that he cares.

Doinb Fined Again For Leaking LPL Information

In a recent stream, Doinb revealed that he was fined by Riot Games after leaking the start date of the LPL Summer Split 2022 whilst live on a broadcast. According to a translation by HUPU Esports, the mid-laner revealed that he was fined 50,000 RMB, which is the equivalent of just below $7,500.

It's not the first time this year either, as he continued to say that Riot also fined him 60,000 RMB last month (approximately $9,000), for leaking more information.

The 25-year-old didn't say what the other fine was for, however, he did continue to detail just how much of an avid leaker he is, claiming that he's been fined "hundreds of thousands".

 

Doinb Admits To Huge Fines From Riot Games 

Continuing on stream, the LPL star said, "Since 2019, I have been fined hundreds of thousands of RMB in total". Doinb has often been known to leak roster moves to his stream too, which likely would have added to his fine total coming from the Chinese organisations.

However, this doesn't seem to be stopping Doinb letting details slip, with the fines being minimal to his overall winnings and earnings. Since his first appearance, the Korean mid-laner has earned over $400,000 in prize money - including large sums from the LPL Summer 2019 and the World Championship - on top of a yearly salary expected to exceed $1,000,000. 

Riot will probably continue to have Doinb-shaped headaches when it comes to leaks and keeping announcement under wraps, and it doesn't seem like his reputation is slowing down any time soon.
