When I get into a game and immediately without any words whatsoever have a hostile teammate cursing me out and banning my pick, where is my opportunity to respond? 1) respond to the except for dodging statement - if someone is being hostile, theres a 75% increase chance that you'll lose and thats because that hostility will demoralize the other players you're playing with 100% of the time. So dodge. 2) stop shadow picking, then they can't ban it out...
1. Ok. So how many games should I dodge when this is the case? One? Three? Five in a row? The only being penalized in this situation is the person that dodges because that's the option they have. 2. So I don't shadow pick and actually DO get the pick and then my support trolls anyway. Yeah I guess I would at least have the pick, but their derogatory conduct afterwards makes my numbers look like shit and there was nothing else I could have done about it but report them after the game. This isn't a solution, it's still part of the problem.

: It's not name calling to say you're acting like an ass. To clarify: theres a difference from being an ass and acting LIKE one. Thanks for ignoring my points though.
Yeah I really don't think they're even reading my post or responses, just reacting and not bringing anything to the table aside from "I'm right, you're wrong." and it's much too much beneath them to read what I've posted and actually respond in a conducive manner. They just want to end the conversation altogether.
: Yeah, you would be an asshole and if you are doing it purely out of malice to troll, then it really sucks. So in your OP example, 1 I may have an issue with; and the other I would need to wait and see if they actually trolled. The one where they ban her for believing she is a "shit champ" I would not. As that one it is their opinion that she isn't good and they cannot effectively play around her. I understand why it ruffles your jimmies, and it would be better if people explained or talked it out before banning. It isn't against the rules because there are valid reasons to ban a friendly intent.
Yeah in instances that the champ is just banned and that's the end of it, I can accept that. But in the instances where you pick before your support, and that support also wants the champ but you'll get it first, so they ban it to keep it from you. And then they pick Brand support and fully waveclear your minions to deny you farm or auto attack in the period of time where you would otherwise wait just a bit more to get the last hit, but they auto it right before another minion's attack lands causing you to miss it. Then holding skills until you die after a full skirmish with the enemy botlaners only to make sure to get the kills and then calling you garbage and spam pinging and talking all kinds of bullshit for absolutely no reason at all other than to ruin your experience... These are the types of things I'm dealing with. It's not just banning the pick, it's all the other crap I deal with after that point.
: A lot of people don't trust new releases and reworks. It's like that pretty much every time. After that, the champion gets patched and players who like the champion have a better idea what they're doing, and the champion loses the Shiny-New factor for everyone else. Once the champion cycles through their first free week, things usually settle down.
No one is questioning the way things are, veterans of the game all know exactly how things go when new champs come out. All I'm asking is why is it this way and is it possible that there is a better solution to make things less hostile and toxic for everyone in a game where you're forced to cooperate with random strangers if you want to win.

My post was only about the specific situations that are happening to me but indeed it still happens for other various reasons. Trolling someone at the get-go before the game even starts DOES create a negative environment for everyone involved and there's no way in-game to report someone for trolling so hard before the game even starts that someone dodges. In this event, what is happening at this point is someone else is being punished at least 6 minutes for dodging queue with someone that has already made it clear they are going to do everything in their power to cause the game to be a loss. This is ESPECIALLY true when someone mentions that they are in their promo series. People will pick the trollest of picks or flame all game simply because they want to see this person fail their promos so they can laugh at them. That is what the current system allows.

Those people also suck to have to play with. Yeah it sucks when my picks are banned but I play something else anyway, I don't know why you just keep assuming that I don't and that I don't still try my best to win the game. These are ranked games we're talking about; trolling and flaming doesn't help anyone win games. The whole reason this is an issue to me is because I'm still being trolled in that game by various other people on my team after the fact, even when I'm not playing the banned champ. The constant flaming that lasts from champion select throughout the entire game is what you're saying is totally allowed simply because someone is free (by the system that exists) to ban my champion. What I would have liked, was a response from someone from Riot with an explanation as to how they arrived at this being the best system to implement but instead, I'm getting trolled by someone on the boards that doesn't even work for them but acts like their opinion is absolute authority and you hammer down on anyone else that has any opinion that isn't yours. You haven't provided anything to further this conversation, only trying to shut others down with the only argument to your opinion being "That's how it is, if you don't like it don't play the game." You tell me to play other champs, I do. I play quite a few more champs in ranked games than you did. It seems like you were a one-trick Maokai in Season 9 so maybe I can break it down in terms you can understand. Someone bans your Maokai pick on your own team in 70% of your games. When you ask why they would do that, they respond "Fuck you I don't want that shit on my team". They are the ADC and you are the support. But in lane, they roam around and get killed by the enemy constantly, they don't last hit so they have minuscule farm and they talk shit about you from the time you start the game, till you mute them 5-10 minutes in because all they're doing is trying to make the game as miserable for you as possible without even mentioning that there are 3 other people on the team who are also being defeated by one person's ill behavior. After 10+ games of the same thing over and over again, it really starts to get to you and so you take to the boards to find out why this instance of player behavior isn't being dealt with. Seriously, the only reason I can think of that you would just blatantly defend how things are now is because you act this way yourself. If you think that it's a pleasant experience to be trolled in good majority of your games then that's on you, but it's not fun for me. Also, the "I'm right, you're stupid" approach really isn't working. If you don't have the decency to read what I've taken my time to write, save yourself the time and stop responding, you're helping no one.
rujitra (NA)
: You're suggesting that you be allowed to, in essence, tell others to "fuck off you can't ban this" simply because you "shadow pick" it. You're dictating what other people can and cannot ban - what gives you the right to do that? If there's mutual respect, wouldn't you accept that they may very well want to ban a champion you want to play, and that is their right?
Listen. That's not what I'm trying to accomplish at all. There is a chat box where people can communicate and discuss strategies for picks before the actual Pick phase of champion select. I'm saying that I have never told anyone what to pick. Sometimes I make suggestions when asked or when I feel needed like a tanky pick or someone with more CC or an AP champ when everyone has AD champs selected. I'm saying that I will not outright ban someone else's pick intent without ever communicating why I feel the need that it be something different, but I still don't ban other people's picks. It's a team game and you have to play with these other 3 or 4 people in Solo/Duo queue and you don't have much say over that except for dodging. When I get into a game and immediately without any words whatsoever have a hostile teammate cursing me out and banning my pick, where is my opportunity to respond? I'm saying that if I wanted to, which I DO NOT, I'm fully allowed to ban any of my teams picks every single match and there's nothing they can do about it. What you are saying is that it is ok for anyone else to dictate what champs I get to play but I shouldn't have any say in the champs that I get to play when I'm the player that has to play a different champ. I have literally never said fuck off you can't ban my pick; if I even have a chance to explain my pick, I do so and they can try to steer me in a different direction. But I am getting ZERO chance to even defend my pick. You can play devil's advocate all you want but really, that doesn't get anyone anywhere. You haven't made any suggestions or comments that further this as a discussion, only putting me on blast because the current system functions this way and all I'm asking is why and why it's considered to be acceptable behavior by the community.
rujitra (NA)
: But you're literally telling them "f*ck you, you're not going to ban that shit because I say so". Like, this isn't "devil's advocate". This is me pointing out that whatever logic you try to apply to say that your desire should outweigh that of others - that same logic can also be applied to say that their desire to ban the champion **for whatever reason** outweighs your desire to play them.
You're right. Everyone is right and everyone is wrong and don't worry about the details. "But you're literally telling them "f*ck you, you're not going to ban that shit because I say so." Please go back and read what I said. I'm not the one saying this. I'm being told fuck you and fuck off and get the fuck out I don't want to play with that shit. It's all aimed at me, I don't dictate what someone else can and can't play, especially if I don't know how good or bad they are with that specific champ. I'm not saying that my desires of what champ to play is more important than others, I'm actually saying that if there's a mutual respect, you don't ban the champion that someone else says they're going to play. I'm actually saying that this is not a practice I have, myself, of banning other people's picks. I don't do that. What I'm asking is why it's ok that this is the way it is.
Kei143 (NA)
: It's a typical behavior when new champs come out.
: Hovering in League is showing a champ and not being locked in with it yet. In blinds, it is called hover and in draft styles, pick intent. So these two terms: pick intent and hover are better known to probably a large chunk of the community, but whatever. Yeah, and depending on what rank you are, people are going to be skeptical on those mechanics. I don't know you, I don't know how your mechanics are. All I know is previous people on champ x have done poorly. So I ban. Don't get me wrong, I don't ban hovers. I'll trust them and either they work or don't. Think of the meme: Yasuo on my team: "lelelel my q makes a funny noise" *an ally has been slain* Yasuo on enemy team: "omae wa mou shindeiru" **Pentakill** Your topic has a focus of the new champ because it is fhe new champ. Yes, there are people who may ban an ally champ regardless. Whether it be for a legitimate reason or not. People will also first time champs in ranked, and it sucks when that happens. They don't usually mention that until after ban phase though. People can pick any champ in any role they want, but people can also ban any champ they want.
You're absolutely spot on with the Yasuo example. What I'm asking is why is this considered ok? Under this assumption that it's fine, I could make a smurf account and simply ban every single one of my mid's intents. In every game. I might lose a good portion of those games but since it's not my main account, what's the problem? Just because you're fully "allowed" to ban any champ, doesn't mean you should, it doesn't mean it's a good idea and it's basis for allowing toxic behavior. I'm saying it's not appropriate because it isn't. How do you defend me banning someone's pick on my team every single game I play? That would make me an asshole, right? I don't want to be an asshole so I don't do these things to other people with no reason at all or based on my own opinion or whims.
rujitra (NA)
: This can literally be turned around the other way - why are other players not allowed to ban the champs they choose to ban?
Thanks for playing devil's advocate but it's the intent of the ban I'm talking about and the trolling after. If someone said "The champ that I picked and play best doesn't work as well with X champ, can you pick someone else?" is completely different from "F*ck you you're not going to play that shit because I say so and for no other reason than that."
: Doesn't it make more sense to say hover than shadow pick? Shorter and more commonly used. Objectively, the scrutiny of a new champ has everything to do with the people who want to play it. Same with any champ that has a bad rep, like Yasuo. Do I really want to risk this person playing this champ? Many side no when it is a new champ because they don't believe the person is versed enough for them. Because guess what. We aren't going to op.gg everyone to check stats.
"Hover" means that your mouse would be "hovering" over a champion and that doesn't do anything in game. You have to actually select them for it to show up that that is your intent. Hovering is just another term leftover from another MOBA where hovering your mouse over a character would indeed show your intent for playing that character, but it doesn't work that way in League. But I don't care what you call it because I still understand what you mean when you say hovering. No one is forced to check someone's op.gg and I'm not even suggesting that it should be done. All I'm saying is that anyone's _opinion_ on a champion doesn't affect my actual, mechanical play of that champion. If you want to argue the fact that the champion is new, that's a moot point. People literally play champs that have existed for years for the first time in ranked without any previous experience with that champion also. "First time xxxxx" is a phrase heard all the time; in ranked as well as in any other game mode that exists. At what point is it acceptable to take a pick into ranked? When a summoner has Master 7 in that champion? Mastery 5? Most ranked games I'm in have at least 2-3 people in them that don't have Mastery 5 with that specific champion yet they play them in ranked anyway. The fact that the champion is new does not mean that I haven't put in game-time with that champ and understand them to the same degree I do any other champion.
: > The whole purpose of shadow-picking to begin with is to declare your intent to play that champion so that your teammates won't ban them and that you will get to play them. It's not called shadow-picking, it's called pick intent. It's what you would like to play barring other circumstances. Get to play them? No. There is no guarantee you will get to play them. The order in draft pick is Ban > Pick, not Pick > Ban > Pick. > There's over 100 champions in the game Exactly. Learn to play more of them. I'm not even reading your other 3 paragraphs because it's meaningless. This is not a player behavior problem. You need to work within the confines of the game mode you want to play or **don't play it**. You are guaranteed **nothing** and anyone can ban any champion for any reason.
Ok, yes let's mince words and make sure we're using the appropriate terminology so you don't get confused as to what I'm talking about. That's why I explained what shadow-picking is so there would be no confusion. Shadow-picking is a leftover term from my Heroes of Newerth days and we also used it in DOTA. Please excuse me using other terminology. I'm fully aware that there is no guarantee that I'll play any champion. I know that the other team can ban them and that's absolutely fine, I even said it's fine and that I accept that. The problem is when it happens consistently to the point that it affects my enjoyment of the game. If someone bans your picks every 2 or 3 games, you're not going to enjoy that either. What it feels like to me is that since it isn't a problem for you, it isn't a problem for anyone. Since you "can" doesn't mean you "should". I know how to play many other champions and I do so with decent success. For you to imply that I don't, just proves that you're trying to sound like you're the authority here and that I should give you some credence when you don't even read my whole post. What you're doing to my post is flaming within the confines of what's acceptable under the ToS. You have a condescending way of talking to people and if you want people to really wanted people to understand or believe you, you wouldn't be so openly hostile with the content of your replies to other people's posts. People that are trying to help others don't speak like you do. Whose authority do you operate under that allows you to tell me I shouldn't play this game? I don't see how you don't consider it a Player Behavior issue when the flood of flaming and trolling and griefing, etc that comes AFTER the ban of my pick is so apparent. If there were no words talking down to me for wanting to play a certain champion OR if there were no actions from my supports or other players on my team for my picks, you would be right; that would not be a Player Behavior issue. But it's LITERALLY how these _players_ are _behaving_ during these games after the ban that is the issue here.
: Anyone, including yourself, can ban any champion for any reason. This is not a "behavior" that's being allowed. This is how draft pick works, this is how draft pick is always going to work or else it's not draft pick. 17 times a week we see threads about this. You are not always going to get the champion you want. Get used to it or play blind pick.
Are you trying to say that in blind pick I will always get to play the champion I want and that no one else can pick them first? The whole purpose of shadow-picking to begin with is to declare your intent to play that champion so that your teammates won't ban them and that you will get to play them. There's over 100 champions in the game so it feels pretty pointed when someone bans the exact champion that you have selected to play. I would not be here with this post if it happened very seldom, but the problem is that it happens every single day, multiple times a day. It's not that I'm not getting to play because the other team bans her, that's acceptable. The problem is that anyone can ban anything they want as a response to shut down their own teammates. It's all about attitudes towards how they feel about the champion as opposed to how that champion actually functions. The problems here are two-fold. Riot has created a champion that the community is clearly divided over. That division is interfering with my ability to play the game in a way that everyone else is free to, yet I am not allowed because my pick(s) are being banned by my own teammates. I say picks because sometimes this happens when I play Swain support also, yet statistically, Swain is my highest win-rate support with over 50%. in fact, I have an 83% win-rate with Swain support, yet still sometimes my own teammates will ban him when I shadow-pick him as support. The other problem is that trolling and griefing are as normalized in this game as chocolate in Sweden. No one thinks twice about their behavior in so many of the games that I play in that I end up having at the very least one person who is constantly flaming one or more players on their team when they make terrible mistakes, bad calls, 1v5s, etc. and don't think that that doesn't affect the whole team. At it's core, League of Legends is a team game and I understand that these types of behaviors exist in situations where anonymity is allowed. But I'm getting blocked and flamed at champ select simply for my intent to play a certain champion. Certainly you can see how this is a problem?
: Question: What is shadow pick? Do you mean pick without hovering intent? Cause if the champ you want is banned, and you weren't hovering it, I don't have sympathy for anyone. Senna is new, new champs always get a lot of scrutiny for like the first month. Part of this is due to the fact people will first time them in ranked in every position.
By shadow-pick I mean the pick is grayed out meaning I have intent on playing it, the very first step in the champion selection process. I literally said that I had picked the champ with shadow-pick meaning my team knew I was going to pick her and that's why they banned her. Not because they didn't want the other team to play her, because they don't want me specifically to play her. I don't care about the scrutiny, objectively it has nothing to do with me considering my amount of success with the champ specifically. What I'm saying is that people do not give me the same due diligence that I do with them and that's what is not ok.
: You werent here for Yuumi release were you?
Yes but I didn't play her. I didn't support the attitudes then either. I didn't like her kit or how passive she could be played, but I didn't outright ban her when people opted to play her either.

: Compromise at least a small amount of money for the players riot.
No I understand where he's coming from. I don't know what the solution is but I can tell you what the inherent problems are. #1 is queue dodging. Waiting 10-15 minutes to get into a game just because someone dodges because they don't get to play the new champ is pretty annoying. #2 "That champion sucks!" or "You can't play that champion in that role!" So when you shadow pick them, one of your own teammates bans them. This has happened to me just as much as someone has queue dodged. In fact, it just happened to me 2 games in a row and then the teammate that banned my pick says chill out it's no big deal. #3 Everyone on your team wants to play them and you're at the bottom of the pick order. #4 "If you play that champion, I'm going to feed/troll/int/etc." (and even then sometimes they take the champ instead) Some people actually use RP to buy champs they never get to play. It's pathetic. The toxicity in this game is THE WORST of any online multiplayer game I have ever played and there's no consequences for people ruining games. If there were, this behavior wouldn't persist. Someone on my team literally gets trolled every single game. I don't understand why people would rather troll and grief their own teammates and lose the game because of than just play the game and win. It blows my mind how disgusting some people can be in this game.

: League Breaks My Computer After Logging In
Actually, it is just League, not other games. ~~It's not just League, it's any game. I uninstalled/reinstalled, no luck. I rolled back my video driver to the previous driver and the one before it, no luck. I don't really know what to check now... there are no errors in Event Viewer. Opened steam and Binding of Isaac and also Dungeon of the Endless, messes up the computer. I feel like it is anything that uses the graphics card. I have a Titan Z. I was using my computer an hour prior to OP and had zero problems. Nothing in my system has changed since then. The only thing that fixes it, is restarting. When I open Chrome or Firefox, there's no change, PC still works fine. I can watch videos on YouTube and no problem. But the second I open a game, instant mega glitchy lag.~~

: Player Behavior Design Values: Punishment
Now I'm not one to be petty, but what you're saying what you have literally done is conflicting. I literally JUST posted a lengthy discussion of the chat topic less than a week ago and the post was DELETED before it received 2 views. I'm all about having some healthy discussion, but they way you deleted my post when suggesting possible solutions to a serious problem in League of Legends is not conducive to your seemingly hypocritical proposition of not muting players indefinitely when indeed all you did was silence me by wiping my post from the boards.
: Screen flashes constantly from champ loading and into game
I found out what the problem is and thought I would share here just in case anyone else is having the same issue. The screen only flickers when I have my TV plugged into my video card. It doesn't matter whether I have the source (my monitor) cloned or extended, the flickering still happens whenever I have my secondary display enabled. My monitor runs at a refresh rate of 144Hz while my TV only operates at a rate of 60Hz. I can only assume that this is actually what is causing the problem because in the nVidia Control Panel, I can't change the refresh rate of my monitor from 144Hz to 60Hz. Each time I apply it and accept the changes to 60Hz, it automatically returns to 144Hz on its own and I can't find a workaround for it on the nVidia forums.
: It started happening about 20 hours after everything was fine and nothing has changed since then. The only difference is that I just now switched everything to default, but "Application Controlled" was already set that way and nothing was being overridden. I also do not have LoL Replay or Curse Voice installed or any other add-ons for that matter.
Nevermind, its got to be my graphics card. I have a Titan Z. The screen is now flashing for all games in Fullscreen mode... Now I'm extremely depressed. Thanks for trying to help me out Elduris...

: Did it start after you updated your drivers or before? Check to make sure there aren't any other programs that could be interfering. Close LoL Replay and Curse Voice if you have them installed, as they are known to cause a couple of issues. Go into your graphics control panel and make sure that the manufacturer application doesn't have control over your graphics settings in-game: > ATI(AMD) and nVidia control panel settings may be overriding your graphics. Try making sure all 3d settings in those programs are set to "Application Controlled" and turn off any V-Sync settings.

: Hey AlmightyMeatwad! Thanks for bringing your issue to the Help & Support board! ^_^ It sounds like your issue may be caused by your graphics card. Make sure your connections are secure (there aren't any loose cables) and that your drivers are up to date. You can check drivers easily by visiting the manufacturer's website and using their driver detector software.
Checked to make sure that everything is seated and fine. My drivers have been up to date since 4 days ago. However, that being said, I played LoL earlier today and had no problems at all. I've also reset all my graphics setting to factory default and still have the same issue.
