: Riot just trolled itself with yuumi rebalance....
She's another Ryze and Azir case. Sub 50% winrate in soloq, but a nightmare in pro-play. I hate that my favorite champion would be gutted like this, but it's understandable. They made a balance nightmare. Possibly one of the most team-reliant champions in the game. Of course she'll be powerful in coordinated environments. Now, I've played as, against, and with Yuumi many times - and yes, her borderline point and click Q can feel very bad to play against. I mean, it isn't even a skillshot. Her poke needed to be dealt with. But completely destroying her passive wasn't necessary, in my opinion. It was already the case before, but now jumping off to proc passive is almost entirely useless - most ADCs and even supports can destroy it in a single attack. There's absolutely no reason to not AFK on your adc all game now. It's just awful. They are turning Yuumi into the thing she is memed to be - an AFK champion. They took the wrong direction by taking away the mana on her passive and nerfing the mana cost on her Q. One or the other is fine. Now Yuumi will have almost no mana in lane, and will most likely be forced to buy three faerie charms on her first back to deal with these mana problems. If they were intending to truly turn Yuumi into an afk champion, they are going the right way about it.
: It’s a disaster and these forums show how bad of one it is. Having a handful of rude users berate people trying to discuss issues? Shame on riot for allowing this.
100%. The boards are a mess. Around 6 months ago I was literally witch hunted because of one questionable post I made, to the point that every post I made was downvoted and I was harassed, and my reports to the offenders did absolutely nothing just like they do in game. I ended up having to use a different account for the boards just so I wouldn't get harassed whenever I tried to make a post. What a disgrace this community is.
: I say they either remove chat entirely or stop policing chat toxicity so harshly because it becomes throwing darts at a wall of who gets perm banned for an argument.
Exactly. This is a highly competitive game. I can't name one other competitive game in which you get banned for literally bantering. I got a 14-day-ban on an account that had not gotten 1 punishment before, said no slurs, didn't swear, nothing. When I posted here about it, people responded saying my ban was justified because I was being annoying. Because being annoying is most certainly an offence. Riot needs context, and they need actual humans policing it. I'm done with this game. All I use it for is income right now.
: Uninstalling League
Agree with you 100%. I'm quitting this game until they A. stop treating their 2nd or 3rd biggest server like a fucking trashcan and B. actually fix their dumb ban system

: Bot lane is literally a bullet hell shooter
Nerfing these mages' mana costs would destroy their mid lane. Maybe you need to get better at dodging skillshots. I mean, Lux E is literally ridiculous I'll give you that, but there's plenty of time to react to Vel Q, Brand W, Xerath Q.
: Glad to see Riot are incapable of getting decent servers still.
It's honest to god a fucking DISGRACE. All of NA's issues were fixed within TWENTY FOUR FUCKING HOURS, and it's not like they couldn't even login to start a game. This has been happening for FOUR FUCKING DAYS, on one of THE BIGGEST SERVERS. IT'S RIDICULOUS. Are we going to get compensated for basically wasting our money on a pass that we couldn' even use for four days because Riot is a dogshit fucking company? OF COURSE NOT! And would you look at that! The first time in 5 years that there are no MSI rewards, it just so happens EUW IS THE WINNER! Of course, if this was happening in NA or KR this would be resolved within 2 hours and they'd all get 1500 rp to compensate. Absolutely fucking disgraceful company, if you can even call them that. They're literally completely and utterly fucking useless when it comes to ANYTHING that isn't taking advantage of their players for $$$.
: Sexual Harassment from Players
Not being rude but you might want a name change. I got tons of people asking to "e-date" among other disturbing things until I got fed up and made a new account. The community acts like they've never made contact with a female in their life (which, considering the high number of 13-year-olds, might not be too far off the truth.)

I don't do that in real life, never. And actually you have not seen my chat logs. I never "scream and rage" at people, just passive aggressive comments that over time lead to punishments. My LIFE doesn't need to change, my mentality does.

If "nothing needs to change," why are you asking for help to change? You're a gentle individual, except when you're raging and screaming at people so frequently that you've gotten almost three _dozen_ banned accounts in just two years on a game that forms virtually all of your social interaction, as you're apparently ostracized IRL? This is not a League issue, and it's more than a bunch of strangers on Boards are qualified to handle. It's about your ability to learn, grow, and successfully interact with other people. _Talk to your parents about this._

Do group projects in a group, try to talk to your classmates outside of class, maybe join a youth group or something... your parents are the best source of ideas for this stuff. Just explain to them the same thing you've explained to us (you've been permabanned dozens of times from a game you enjoy because you scream at everyone nonstop the instant they bother you and you'd like to change this), and I'm sure they'll be happy to help you learn and grow.
my life has been the way it was for the last 4 years, long before i started playing league. nothing needs to change, in real life i am a gentle individual who is prone to snappping at people who provoke me. same thing in league and it's the reason i have been banned so much.
: To be perfectly honest with you, this is something you should be discussing with your parents. "Just mute everyone," "recall more often," etc. isn't going to be useful advice when you're in a group project for school and someone in your group never does any work (there's always someone like that). You don't need League-specific advice; you need skills and strategies to help you cope with other people who may or may not meet your expectations, because everyone needs to deal with that throughout their life, at least occasionally.
Well, i'm not like this in real life.

yes i have been trying my best and trying to be positive instead of negative. my last game my jungler abandoned me to die in a 1v2,i started typing a paragraph to him, before deleting it and typing "mb" instead, encouraging our botlane throughout the game too, and i think it's what let us win...our jungler kept saying the game was over every time he died and im sure me flaming on him wouldve made him afk

: 31 perma bans wtf do u get permad every time u queue up for a game
my first ever perma ban was in august 2017 i think, 2 months after i first started playing the game, and it has gone downhill since then
: I noticed that your account is on the EUW servers. According to studies (and please correct me if I'm wrong) there seems to be a stigma in that area against males looking for counseling OR there's a lack of trained counselors in the area. The fact that you're prone to fits of rage could be related to puberty and hormonal imbalance. It could also be a sign of anger management issues. There's also the issue of EUW and the US having different cultures. Riot Games is a US based company and so the TOS and mindset for this game is primarily designed with US culture in mind I think (once again someone correct me if I'm wrong. I don't want to give false information). With that in mind it's possible that the "grow balls and fight back" mentality is just a part of your culture. If you want to change your behavior then the best advice that I can give you is... Try to understand this. Regardless of what lane you're in - your opponent is the person that gets assigned to the same lane as you. Your job is to perform better than your opponent. How you choose to do that is up to you. The same goes for Jungler. Now the question is - what does "perform better" mean? To put it in simplest terms you need to be earning more gold and XP than your opponent. How your team chooses to manage those two currencies is the only difference between winning and losing. ------------------------------------ Let's put this into a scenario. You did not specify your lane. So I'm going to assume that you're a mid laner. In mid lane your opponent is behind. You've traded really well and now your opponent has less HP than you. They're forced to sit at the back of the minion wave and can't farm gold. This player is duoing with jungle. They ask their jungle friend to come assist them. Because they're duoing the jungle friend feels an obligation to assist the mid lane player. Jungle takes his blue buff and comes mid. What should you do? -------------------------------------- - At this point you should retreat. - ping for assistance if you THINK you can take the two champions together. - wait for confirmation that assistance is coming - wait for the jungle to initiate the engagement - follow up from a safe distance - back for items if you have the gold - return to lane - play from your side of the lane because jungler might be camping your lane - place a control ward nearby your lane that wont get destroyed to defend against the enemy junglers pathing if your jungle decides that it's better for him to clear the jungle then try to understand that that is a valid tactic. If the jungler hasn't bought enough items or has already used his blue buff/red buff and doesn't have it going into the fight then it might be better for that jungle to continue to focus earning XP and gold in their side of the jungle. If your team knows where the enemy jungler is then your jungler knows which camps to take. Beyond that there are some champions like shyvanna and ivern that have to focus the jungle and they do it extremely well. In these instances it's very likely that the enemy jungler is losing his camps and is being forced into a lane. It's your job as the laner to continue to entice that jungler to come to your lane. If you can do that without dying then he will fall behind and be unable to contest epic monsters. By reading into your complaint I have envisioned a scenario where you're playing as... {{champion:136}} and you're against a {{champion:45}} +{{champion:19}} i imagine that your jungler is someone like... {{champion:77}} at the beginning of the game even if your jungler chooses to ignore the 2v1 scenario that was created on the enemies team it's still your job as the mid laner to not die. If you're scared of getting dived then buy zhonyas, gargoyle stoneplate, warmogs, rylias, rod of ages, banshees veil, archangel staff, proto belt or glp-800, locket of the iron solari, zz rot, randuins omen, redemption, reverie, steraks gage, sunfire cape, thornmail etc. if you're fearful that you wont be able to run away then just buy something that will help you not die. builds need to be flexible. One thing about Sol is that he's immobile. He doesn't have a dash, a flash, a blink, etc. So you need to build with that in mind. If an enemy can get on top of you then you're dead. And it's not the jungler's job to keep you alive.
In this match, I was {{champion:136}}. My jungler was {{champion:82}}. The enemy mid and jungle were {{champion:164}} and {{champion:61}} . Camille had ganked me twice before my jungelr had even finished his second camp, and there was little I could do since I had to get so close to the wave in order to farm. Felt like there was nothing I could've done and my adc constant flaming and pinging only tilted me more.

I appreciate the lengthy response - I made mistakes too that game, but it doesn't help that my adc wants to add fuel to the fire by pointing out everyone's amount of deaths and spam pinging her support's frostfang for some reason - despite the fact that I camped her lane.. If I interpret your post correctly, you tend to see (or think to see) a lot of mistakes being made by others and it annoys you. When somebody flames you for every little thing, try to imagine that they think just like you and how ridiculous it all is in the end. Maybe you can even laugh about it after a while.
Yes, this is true in real life too, I tend to see the worst and the mistakes in people rather than the opposite. But I am trying to change that.
: Remember that it's impossible for someone to play their best every time. 50% of games you play will be below average for you, and that's true of *everyone* else. This means that, at any given time, 2-3 players on your team are likely playing worse than they normally do. Additionally, your own perception of what is going on in the game is limited by your viewpoint and the things you see. There's often games where I think someone made a stupid move, downloaded the replay, and saw that they noticed something I didn't that would have gotten us both killed, or that I messed up a play a minute earlier that put me in that vulnerable position. If you're ganked 7 times in 10 minutes, for example, that's a lane that, as a jungler, I'd ignore -- you're *very* far behind, and it's my job to try to help the team as a whole. I could spend my time on a losing lane to stem the bleeding, or I could try to get myself/others ahead through focusing on other lanes and objective control so we have a stronger team to deal with 1-2 fed champions. In many cases that's the RIGHT call, much as it sucks for the laner who is getting camped. 7 ganks in 10 minutes, however, likely means you also could probably have warded more and played safer. It's for this reason that my recommendation is always this: **worry about your own gameplay, not the gameplay of others**. Sometimes, sure, someone else misses something -- but sometimes you (or I, or anyone) misses stuff as well. We can't MAKE other players pay attention to us, but we CAN work on how we can prevent getting ganked, or dying again in lane, or how well we farm under tower, or how well we learn to play while behind. Focus on that stuff and keep your chat limited to planning / encouraging your team, and the game gets a lot less frustrating. You can't win them all, and that needs to be something you both understand and are okay with. If it's not, *League* just won't be fun for you.
I understand this, it's just very hard to work into my mentality. I appreciate the lengthy response - I made mistakes too that game, but it doesn't help that my adc wants to add fuel to the fire by pointing out everyone's amount of deaths and spam pinging her support's frostfang for some reason - despite the fact that I camped her lane..
Kei143 (NA)
: You get good at the game and know when they are going to tower dive and back of. Good ward timings can help. As a support main, I don't understand why by bot laner partner would scream for wards when the enemy jg and mid laner are all visible at the opposite side of the map. Me warding at that point would just have wasted at least 45 seconds of the ward. Also learning how to wave manage, CSing under tower, and wave clear patterns are very strong points to learn.
There isn't much I can do when I get ganked 2 minutes into the game, it fails, I farm for another 30 seconds and back, and get towerdived and die while my jungler is still farming his second camp. Is that my mistake, or am i just unlucky?
Rioter Comments
: I'd just leave this hell hole, League of Legends used to be a fun and entertaining game but it's just too toxic and run so poorly now. Riot bans with their detection system, meaning there is rarely a case where an employee bans you. Riot also has complete faith that their dumb as a cardboard box full of cat piss system is perfect and will only ban those who deserve it, meaning you 100% will never get that account back. If I were you I'd play a game like Warframe, the community is amazing and almost everyone is willing to help you instead of flaming you and mocking you.
i didnt get a perma ban but it feels just as bad
Rioter Comments
: Yeah if thats not the case why do you think he blocked you on everything? clearly you don't understand people, you're sick.
Um, he blocked me on everything because he was salty. "Everything" being Discord and league. He was mad for literally a day and a half before re-adding me and we started playing again...mostly because he needed a support but still...I understand him well enough to know that his life wasn't ruined by getting banned in a video game. It's not his first time getting banned either.

: #Think of me as an idiot but I can relate with your friend or maybe its just me. There's a reason people like him or rather, *us*, be the way we are, we suffer a lot & then end up subconsciously taking it out on people whom we love & also love us back due to them understanding us the best so we may subconsciously believe that they can handle our suppressed heat that has gathered within us due to facing struggles for long periods of times patiently, just my two cents.
he did mention being lonely and not being able to talk to people well in real life.. only really being able to talk with people when playing a game so there's something to talk about...but he rarely mentions these things to me. we made up since this thread but he is only really happy playing league with me when i play supports that he likes.. I am just having a feeling that he only values me as a league buddy since he rarely speaks his mind to me.

The reason girls are rarely seen in high levels of play is because they make up less than 10% of the playerbase, and high elo makes up less than 1% of the playerbase as it is. How is it sexist to say I don't like playing video games with women and I don't like women in the industry? It's extremely underhanded and a PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHY I DON'T LIKE WOMEN IN GAMING. Because holding any opinion or any position that is counter to the position or opinions of women is automatically sexist. If I say that women have, objectively, ruined both the AAA and indie development industries, you'll call me sexist no matter what evidence I offer (this isn't the thread for that but I could go on for hours) and that's what has ruined gaming in my opinion. You women can screech "sexism, sexism, sexism" and shut down anyone who says anything you don't like, even when it's just an opinion like mine. I never said women shouldn't or couldn't play video games, all I said was I prefer not to play games with women and that makes me a sexist somehow. THIS IS WHY I HATE WOMEN IN GAMING!!! STOP RUINING MY FUCKING HOBBIES!!! https://imgur.com/a/RKDpSRQ Pic F'ing related.
Look the reason I said you're being "mindlessly sexist" is because you assume I'm getting carried in my games, and the fact that you ban all girls from your club or whatever without giving them a single chance. Can't tell if troll or not

he was being extremely toxic and negative all game. that's why i reported him. and yes, we were friends.

not buying items, trying to use abilities to damage towers, oh and when i finally learned how to buy items, i just bought full items. no components xD
: >my ping was higher than usual, about 80 ms I play with 130 ms, you ruined a game and now you're shilling 50 flames means nothing in a game, just mute and play, win and block the toxic that's all, that's all, but no, you're an e-girl so Riot will always hear your voice, now he's banned and you ruined the game for other 3 people, bravo, good job, League of Legends is a better place for you!
i am sorry but how did i ruin the game? i played to win and got botlane some kills...our toplaner was 0/6 he was ruining the game more than i was.. and no, i am not an e-girl.i am simply a girl that plays league of legends. my champion pool is diverse: along with ahri, neeko, nami, sona and yuumi, "egirl champs", i also enjoy playing velkoz, anivia, malzahar, irelia, warwick, and aurelion sol. i have never asked anyone for a skin in my life. all of the skins i've had gifted are my friends who happened to have spare rp and decided to do so out of the kindness of their hearts. and as for your first point, i didn't say that my ping is bad or unplayable, i just said it is HIGHER THAN USUAL. my ping usually is 35-40 ms, so it spiking to 80-90 ms can impair how i land and dodge skillshots at time. since it's a 40 ms difference from what i usually play on. i have played on 800-2000 ping before.
: >did I do the right thing No. No you did not. Friends can be forever. This game will eventually die and people will move on to another game. Dude... You're not that bright. League is temporary, friendship is eternal. Ein Folk, Ein Friendship, Ein... something not racist. If you genuinely believed that what you did was the right thing to do, or if you had any confidence in your decision you wouldn't be here asking for a hug box to tell you everything will be alright and you're a good girl for what you did. I don't think you did the right thing and I don't think you suffered any "abuse" from this person, you should hear how guys talk to each other and banter over vidya. UwU Ur no git GF lulzor. Pfffffffffft.
everything happened over league. we met over league, bonded over league, got banned over league and eventually, parted ways ovevr league. i know what banter is, but it's not banter when this guy uses the same, upsetting insults every single time.

Oh, sorry to hear that. Small town? At least you have a girlfriend.... or is that just online too?
i live in the country and the trip to school i 40 minutes. and to get to the nearest town is 20 minutes. so apart from school i rarely leave the house...and yea my gf is online too but even then shes treated me better than any kid irl has..
: > I have seeked (suck? sook?) Haha, the word you're looking for is "sought"! Someone that makes you feel bad about yourself aren't a friend. They're an acquaintance you're forcing yourself to stay with because of the time commitment you've already invested in them. You're only in contact because you know them, not because you actually need them. Sounds like an abusive relationship if i've ever heard of one. A friend is one that either ALWAYS takes your side or stays neutral, no matter how wrong you are. A friend never goes against you like that and i'm glad he is out of your life as you'll soon realize how much better off you are without him. I hope you do not end up adding him back. It's best for your own mental health and your depression that you keep him out and forget him. You say yourself that he wasn't banned because of your report - you didn't receive an instant feedback report. You can receive these even several days after you make your report, so the fact you didn't makes me think your report didn't actually contribute to his ban - but that's just an assumption. Regardless of what caused his ban, try to calm down as you seem very emotional about this - think logically. This person is CONSTANTLY, INCESSANTLY toxic to everyone in every single game he plays. He has already gone through AT LEAST three chat restrictions and one TWO WEEK suspension already - and this is assuming that's his first account, which sounds likely with his extreme reaction to his ban. Do you REALLY think this guy was ever going to "stay clean"? With his track record, he was going to get banned no matter what - regardless of your influence. The only way for you to stay friends would be for the two of you to never play with each other as he'd then have no reason to be toxic towards you. But then you wouldn't actually have anything tying you together, would you? Which leads us back to whether or not it's worth keeping this person in your life. Most toxic players are toxic due to feeling extremely competitive and frustrated in-game. These people leave their frustrations in the game. Your "friend" kept insulting you outside the game, taking his anger with him into your personal lives despite no longer playing. Need i say more? I know how sad it is when you lose someone you have history with - but try to think of his anger episodes. Don't focus on your good memories together - think about how he makes you feel when he's angry. Is going through that constantly worth the few good memories you have in your past? Is it worth suffering like this, questioning yourself constantly and even seeking help online just to keep him around? I've been toxic myself, and i've lost friends because of it. Some people simply aren't compatible. I regret what i have done, but at the same time i realize we were never really compatible in the first place - my friend and i were very different types of people, and without the game we didn't actually find it worth it to stay in contact. My anger just made them uncomfortable and ruined the experience for everyone involved. Unlike your friend, i realize this - and i've changed. Considering your friend not only takes his anger with him outside the game, but also insults you on a personal level (i were never toxic towards friends - my anger was ALWAYS directed towards my opponents, with the exception of the very first time i was toxic.) I really don't think he is ever going to change - this is who he is deep inside, not just who he becomes due to frustration. When someone has deeply personal insults in store for you, those are things they have probably been thinking for a long time. One angry asshole's opinions shouldn't have more value than those of everyone that loves and cares about you. And having one bad match in a game that is not only literally all about winning and losing, but also a game where people typically plays hundreds of matches in a year, should not define a person. League of Legends is a war game, and if you never lost the game wouldn't be any fun in the first place. It's all about learning and fighting together - NOT fighting each other. EVERYONE has bad games. Just search ANY pro player's name on Youtube and you'll see hundreds of videos of the best players in the world making terrible mistakes and getting screwed over for them. EVERYONE makes mistakes, EVERYONE has bad games, EVERYONE loses from time to time - and you weren't even playing your main role, being placed mid instead of support. Regardless of context, defeat's just par for the course in competitive video games and after 1-3 matches you won't even remember it happened in the first place. I wish you luck with your exams (or dealing with the aftermath) and i hope you will take our advice of keeping this person out of your life. I know it might not feel like it, but it does get better without him - if you feel lonely there are better people out there you might not have met yet, and if you don't actually need more friends then don't forget your girlfriend is with you for a reason. What you care about is the time you've spent with this person - NOT who they've become today. Make up a mental scale of reasons to keep them and reasons to remove them, and you'll realize that scale is horribly skewed and likely has been for some time already. Since you play on EU West, i would love to play some normal games from time to time. I like playing Yuumi a lot, but if you prefer playing support i'd be happy to give that up. I can only promise one thing: I won't flame you or be toxic. No guarantees as for my performance!
Thank you so much for the long reply. His track record is much worse than what it seems - on his first account, he received 12 chat restrictions and 3 14 day bans before getting permabanned in May 2019. so it doesnt seem like he ever learned even though i always told him to calm down in game chat. and yes, my exams have finished so I am feeling better than i was at the time of writing that post. I made a new account since i can't win in ranked with Yuumi or support in general right now, but i'd be glad to add you and play some normals :)
: Wait so yall werent like, real friends? You just played online games together and have never actually met? If so, fuck him. Hes just some guy, you werent real friends.
well i dont have friends in real life...that sound sad but no one really want to talk with me cuz i don't talk. and i dont live near to anyone. so i have no one. but i dont mind it. my friends come from the internet always and he was the longest lasting one...it reminds me of a time when i was 9 year old and my internet "best friend" hacked my webcam to insult my weight..

: ? 80ms is "bad"? hahahah.... I guess I play every match with shitty af ping. If your "friends" aren't a positive influence on your life.. well. I wouldn't sweat over what's been done.
no 80 ms is not bad, i played with over 2000 ping before... but it is 40 ms higher than what i usually play with, it is not severely affecting my gameplay it just makes it alot harder to land and dodge skillshots
: > my question is, Was i in the right here? I was very upset by what he said in game. Both from the standpoint of the rules and from a personal standpoint; yes. If he was being toxic and upsetting you through flame, underhanded remarks, etc., you were well within the right to report him. Him getting a permanent suspension just showed that he hadn't learned from his 14-day ban, and just got what was ultimately coming to him. > I kind of ruined this friendship that lasted so long. Frankly, I think your friendship with him ended when he decided to call you "e-girl trash" amongst other things; he ain't much of a friend if he's ready to insult you and flame you like he did, both in and out of game. > can anyone at least reassure me that i did the right thing? You did do the right thing, and I agree with your other good friend. If that guy was and still is toxic, then it's best to just cut him off; you're worth more than insults, and definitely don't need a "friend" like him to make you feel bad for no good reason.
i agree that he deserved it...he already got his main that was level 207 permabanned less than a month ago...and he seems to think that im entirely to blame for it all. but rly we talked every day for a little over 2 years..rly i dont want to stop talking even though its the best. idk
: Yeah, toxic relationships are very bad. I've had a toxic relationship one after another over the years. I'm starting to learn how to run away from toxic people like your friend who BTW is abusing you psychologically. I'm not a toxic person but I can't control some of my emotions very well and I don't hide it when I'm upset which created many of my toxic relationships. My advice is, look for good friends who bond with you and don't make you upset.
I never thought of it this way before, but it does make some sense. that he decided to ditch me because he lost his account in a video game. his justification for insulting me is that it's just a joke. now i hail from scotland so of course a nice friendly insult is like a good morning greeting...but it starts to hurt when he does it so consistantly all the time. and i had to brush it off all these times but idk who rly gave him the right to think that it's ok to talk to anyone in that way.. his perspective was that i was somehow tilting him even though i was trying my best all game even though i lose my lane. and I was doing well with my roams so idk how i was tilting him. apparantly me mentioning lag was tilting...

: >Then after the game proceeded to add me to a lobby and made some rather sexist comments. The general consensus is that because you added the player you're aware of what language they may use in PMs and as such the player shouldn't be held accountable for it. If someone is negative in game, _don't_ add them. Not saying that I agree with it, but Riot tends to not be super strict about PMs. > I blocked her of course, but it baffles me that people like this don't get any punishment. PM related punishments are a gray area at best. Toxicity, intentionally feeding, and more are all punishable. Just because one person you interacted with didn't get punished doesn't mean the community is allowed to run rampant. It's an automated system, errors can occur, punishments can take time to be doled out or require manual review, and sometimes require "cases" to be built up first. One person not being punished isn't indicative of Riot justifying negativity.

: >had a player that intentionally banned jungle's champ Generally not punishable, only in very rare scenarios where it is found to be done consistently and with malicious intent. Even then, I'm just going off of what I remember reading one time in a Rioter comment that I haven't been able to find since. I could be wrong. >inted lane (Running into 4 people alone) Making a bad choice =/= inting. If it's a clear cut case of them running into the team without moving or making an effort to survive, yes, that is intentionally feeding and you can get punished for that. Players have been punished for that before. >HOW is this behavior not punished, yet you can lose your account for upsetting oversensitive crybabies? It's outstanding. That type of behavior is punished. [Here's an example of it happening. ](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/NEA5kY3V-i-got-banned-and-will-reply-here-every-time-i-move-up-a-checkpoint) The reason why toxicity is punished more frequently than feeding/griefing/AFKing is because toxicity is much more easily identifiable than the latter. It's much easier to look at a game's chat logs and flag someone who used a racial slur than it is to look at a 0/6/3 Ashe who made one questionable play. At what point is the line drawn? How do you determine who's inting and who's just playing poorly? How do you do it consistently, accurately, and through an automated system? There are too many factors at play, _that's_ why feeding tends to be punished less than toxicity. Also, obligatory note: Toxicity can lose you a game just as easily as intentionally feeding can. Someone who is raging and not putting their focus into the game is just as much a liability as the person AFK farming top. _Also_, it takes multiple offenses for someone to lose their account over it whereas gameplay punishments are much more strict and at most offer 2 chances.
They also flamed everyone else the whole game, blaming people who were doing well for losing lane and dying to ganks despite us pinging the enemy jungler. At one point she died because she ran into the enemy team while typing. Insulting our jungle and toplaner who were winning. Then after the game proceeded to add me to a lobby and made some rather sexist comments. I blocked her of course, but it baffles me that people like this don't get any punishment.

: zed:
Indeed. I had a Zed flash e auto me at level 4 when I was 75% hp. I died. I do not understand why this champion is allowed to be an ad assassin who does the same thing a mage does. He needs to be reworked asap

: sadly i was trying to get prestige evelynn that why i even posted this :))) well this should be a lesson right? i shouldnt put more money in this game and i should try and be less toxic ;/
Yeah work on reformig yourself. You can play champions with nice quotes like Ivern, Braum or Nunu. Impossible to be toxic while playing those guys. Or you can get a script to make it so you can't type at all. Either way, gl with your reform. :)
: From 10 game chat restriction straight to permaban?
Your chat logs are INCREDIBLY tame for the usual bs I see on these boards. you probably wanna file a ticket. Also, if you were chat banned while at honor 2, you should've gone to honor 1. That is very strange.

: Griefing Master Yi and trolling autofill and i still get perma banned for being tilted
All these chat logs are incredily toxic. Even if yi was trolling, you shouldnt have kept typing. Take a break if you need to, step away from the computer, pet your cat, have a nice cuppa. Who cares if youre still in game? It was lost anyway. I have 30+ permabanned accounts, but even I very rarely type as much as you. (I get banned for typing a little bit with no bad words over multiple games, and it adds up ._.) But back to your punishment. If this was a 2 week ban, work on trying to ignore trolls and de-tilt, clearly you need some work on your mental. If it's permanent, rest in peace my guy.
: The new arcade skins are cool but Xerath hasn't had a skin since 2015
And alas, Vel'Koz, Kindred, and Kassadin, all of whom would've been perfect fits for either the Arcade or Dark Star themes, are still seeing neglect. I'd kill for Battle Boss Vel'Koz.
