Why are some people in League of Legends so toxic?

Hello fellow summoners, i am currently writing a research paper about the League of Legends community. One of the questions i would like to answer (or at least try to answer partly) is why some individuals of the League of Legends community are so toxic. I would love to hear your thoughts on this! Is it because of certain game features that support toxic behavior? Is it because of the age group of League of Legends? Is it because of its competitiveness? What do you think contributes to the toxic behavior we can see almost every day in League of Legends? Please share your thoughts with me!

We're testing a new feature that gives the option to view discussion comments in chronological order. Some testers have pointed out situations in which they feel a linear view could be helpful, so we'd like see how you guys make use of it.
