Drug Detox Center For Internet Addicts Gives Rise To Small Business Start-up?

Remember that ole Amy Winehouse refrain: "they tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no!"?

So I've got some good news and I've got some bad news. The good news is that WCG Iran plans to host a League of Legends tournament this September, meaning the long ban the country's had on the game is finally being lifted. The bad news? They're banning pretty much every female champion in the game.
