: i really wish this community was less toxic
the system doesn't separate feeders into their own quarantine so most people just assume the worst, don't blame frustrated players blame the matchmaker (riot). No one knows if you will be literally standing in front of the tower tanking damage cause ??. You could be a good one, but who knows? The doubt and suspicion is created by the game itself. If players that feed were isolated into their own pool based on stat-averages then the frequency would be lower, people would not suspect you so early, and toxicity would reduce.
: Griefing in URF
My issue with urf is it doesn't feel random, I get maokai so much its stupid.

: Riots MMing is archaic. It is BAD and is a huge part of the Toxicness of the game. If Riot made Ranked MMing actually good that game would improve. If they had done it 5 years ago the toxicness would be 50% less then it is now. Riot may have waited too long to address the issue. Players are fed up with this shit and are now just inting games because they are pissed.

Players are fed up with this shit and are now just inting games because they are pissed. They have the right idea, I played ranked for a bit and found it worse than blind pick. More trolls, more afk, more inting. No reason not to play casual modes anymore I think.

You can calculate their participation in a game, in fact, the game already does this. Someone who is inting will have very abnormal stats for the game, sounds like a red-flag to me. The worse case would be a false-positive, but if their pattern of behavior is so bad then they should be removed form ranked games anyways.
Gorethog (NA)
: LP loss prevention for afk on team
Won't happen, losing LP to rng like that is part of the system. Think of it as artificial difficulty. If you stand back and look at lol you'll see it has the mobile frustration mechanic, it keeps you seeking that reward feeling after losing for reasons beyond your control. It works, is time-tested, and ubiquitous these days. There's some good material out there on the psychology of such mechanics.
Pepe God (NA)
: Why is URF so bad?
So you take urf seriously when it's just a humorous game mode? Sounds like it isn't the game's problem {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: FF15 has a 100% loss rate. Games in which people try to make a comeback do not. If everyone is up for surrender, FF15 makes sense. Getting tilted because someone else isn't ready to give up only implies that you think your opinion matters 100% more than theirs does, and still guarantees a loss (your weak mental tilts them as well) - only you have to wait an extra 5-15 minutes for it. If you're going to be stuck in the game anyways, why not try to pull off an epic comeback?

: The Grading System is Stupid
Yeah it really does suck, I get S by taking junglers to bot or visa versa and then just farming the whole game, if you end up with a fed laner then it is instant S. I can go 10/1/10 and have presence in all fights but only get A but afk-farming gets you S. Pity really.

: I wish junglers realize how important it is to gank bot
Riot forces jungles to be even more selfish since the jungle is worthless so any gank needs a payout, "helping" isn't something we can afford anymore. Wave/kill/tower is basically the fee and its not worth returning if you are denied. Regarding bot, as another jungler said, so many times botlanes don't setup for the gank or afk-farm once the jungle gets there. If the jungle paid more then we could be generous, but riot demands we play basically 1v9. I do miss actually being able to help the team instead of just looking for lanes with a quick paycheck.

Guess thats the end of my RP buying, this is too suspicious. It appears that they are joining in a brigade based on zero evidence, I knew they were greedy but I didn't know they were malicious at Rito.
: Well, that was the whole point of the thread, for people to talk about the issue and whether or not they've been as heavily affected as I have. If others haven't been as heavily affected as I have, I would like my case to be looked into. And before you say "it's just an unlucky streak", that's not true either. This type of thing has been happening to me for years now. As soon as I start to make some progress in ranked, I get a whole bunch of games where people sabotage the games by afking or running it down.

This type of thing has been happening to me for years now. As soon as I start to make some progress in ranked, I get a whole bunch of games where people sabotage the games by afking or running it down. That is because this game isn't competitive all the time, it inserts breaks to slow your progress so you buy more (common with mobile games). Try 1v1/1:1 games, it is a world of difference. StarCraft RM and 2 are both 100% better than the AFK lottery you get with this, at the end of the day you are to blame 100% for losing in a 1v1 and you never feel cheated if you have good sportsmanship.

: LCK today, Ornn swapped to mid....
For those of us that like neeko on other lanes that would be a problem, on-hit is the most fun way to play her and the attack speed nerf killed the champion before they revised it. Tough thing to change for one lane without killing her for all others.

In strange cases such as that we may have to clear the enemy wave and take a shield plating with demolish, but only while botlane is back/out of range.
: LMFAOOO JUNGLE ACTUALLY RUINED
On the contrary, I'm going to have a lot of fun taxing the laners for the privilege of my gank time and I will not gank unless gold is guaranteed. 1 wave per gank minimum and no returning if stopped.

: Unpopular Opinion: Riot MIGHT have done the right thing with the jungle
What they did was drop the floor below any non-lv2 gankers. This means MORE Lee Sins, Yis, etc. They made it way riskier to have diverse choices in the jungle and made it so you will have to deal with jungles that actually need to camp you to stay competitive. Farming is no longer an option. It also means we will be taxing you big time, that part I can't wait for.{{item:3077}}
