: If blocking a player means that you no longer get matched with/against them it would be used to abuse that feature rather than for the legitimate purpose of avoiding because of behavior. Players would use "block" to avoid being matched with players that they felt were unskilled. It sucks, but I would recommend waiting longer between a match if there was someone you didn't want to play with/against. Personally, I feel like there could be a happy medium for a block mechanic to modify who you're matched with. Something like being able to block up to 3 players from appearing in your game in a 8 hour period. Just to avoid short-term re-encounters like you describe.

Something like being able to block up to 3 players from appearing in your game in a 8 hour period. Just to avoid short-term re-encounters like you describe. It would at least be nice to make it so that person can't appear in your next say 3 games. Limited to maybe the last person you blocked, and can only be used on each person once, per 30 games. Or something. I don't know. I'm not a game dev or a game balance manager but... It's really tilting when the matches that aren't dodged YOU have to dodge or they're remakes because Riot's new launcher yet again causes bugsplats in like 45% of games. :/
