This has honestly been proven incorrect by Games Such as Dota II In fact dota removed their entire Reporting system Because players were miss using it and reporting out of control. this was causing them to lose money and players because of the miss use of this system and so Dota just removed it. I mean as seen in many games and others can attest to this statement. Players are making troll accounts to purposely troll other players to get them to rage , or be toxic and to what ever purposely just to falsely report them for some thing they antagonized, and the person doing this doesn't care because they made a alt account that they don't care about to do this very thing.

I have to strongly disagree with this, Have you made a smurf account? Because I have and its not welcoming to newcomers. On this account, I've seen new players get raged at and bashed just for trying to learn to play the game. I've seen players get told to die and uninstall just for trying to learn to play in these low ranks by no means is it even friendly to new players. This is because. Riot has made this game toxic, and enable it. I mean as proven by MANY players. People now Make smurf accounts to troll lower ranks, to be toxic, infact to troll in general. This causes players to leave and quit the game both new and old. > Muting has been proven to be the best solution for a myriad of reasons. > > - For one, it removes any stress from the people who are being flamed in the first place.

In some cases and games I've gone through and Said " muting team and pings GL HF GG" and just left my stuff un muted but stayed quiet just to keep myself aware of game plans and pings in hopes to turn the game into a win. And in these games no muting doesn't help any of what you said. It doesn't stop bickering back and forth because as proven, The person who is being toxic will continue to rage, They will then rage in All chat about the player they are being toxic too.. Other team members will then join and in some points your entire tema will start talking in all chat " PLS report said player they are being toxic muted team for no reason" > I'm not really sure what "poor punishments" means.

want to place money on that cause I got the reform card for it.
: Toxicity Jail is real
Dunno, Honestly I just got a 14 day ban. honestly you can't talk in general in this game hell even saying " muting team and pings GL HF GG" is considered toxic and yes as seen gets you a 14 day ban.. which I just got thank you . Riot really needs a better definition of what is toxic and reportable and what is just frustration cause right now Basically using "CHAT" is considered toxic and reportable.
: Riot games is the source of all toxicity
Actually you're part of the reason why this game is so toxic. Smurfing, And causing a inflation of people being in ranks they shouldn't be due to their skill lvls or lack there of. That's what throws this entire ranking system into disarray I don't get why smurfs play in these elos then go on about how people are unskilled. and toxic its like you're the reason why the toxic lvls are so high.. you join a game start pointing out every ones flaws, well what you seem to forget are youre in a low elo and you're telling people how to play a game which in a spot makes you seem "high and mighty" and will make people say " well if youre good why are you in this elo" which then you'll say " cause i'm a smurf. and they will say " That's what every one says" thus rage goes on and on by both parties.
: Guide to Not Receiving Trolls
you forgot no. 6 Just uninstall and stay away from Internet games.
: League 101. If u truely believe u are a better player than ur elo, then y play a carry. U cannot go blitzcrank, claim to play like a gold and still lose, and pretend that means anything because it does not. Watch bunny fufus bronze thresh videos. U do not play utility champs in an elo that u cannot rely on followup. Only exception would be if u have a carry duo u know is compitent. Otherwise yes, u are just flipping a coin.
And that thinking is what causes the climb in ranked to be so bloody stupid.. "Watch Bunny Fufu's video" Seriously this is the stuff that causes most the losses in bronze is some one watching a video that some pro or streamer in high ranks posted.. and now through the power of vision They are now Plat players" yea I was blitz ok landing grabs and following up, me picking blitz has nothing to do with the fact multiple other lanes failed that game.. which no one seems to understand the issue with this thinking, " I know i'm not Diamond or plat and, I understand I can't carry every team. So I have to improve I have to get better which I get. But that is hard to do and frustrating when I get teams like that one that just fed their lanes" 1. I don't play a carry and go support because simply put.. Support is one of the most autofilled rolls aside from jungler and I would rather support myself then deal with some one who got autofilled and goes "lux support" and starts off trying to build {{item:3285}} as their first item and never builds a support item claiming.. a support item is for ADC's not support. 2. Another issue is, simply from your comment those who watch a video of some one playing a carry " that's what half these first time urgots, and Ezreals are. They are people who watch some LCS or Plat streamer Steam roll with one of these champions and because now they saw this video and know the runes they magically know how to play and carry with these champions they have never played..
Saezio (EUNE)
: How is that the problem? If I am in gold 3 but on average, I play like a plat 2 player (not stats, having plat stats on a gold game doesn't mean I am plat skill, having plat stats in a _plat_ game means plat skill) how many games does it take for me to get out of gold? If there is a chance that there are silver players in _my team_ there is a bigger chance they will be on the _enemy team_ . Now, there is an exception to this, if I am of higher skill level than my allies 9/10 times, I should know better than to play supportive/team oriented champions. To climb I should know I have to play the champions that the carry player I am should play. And when I reach a place where I am about the average player in the game (not the best not the worst) then I can start relying on my team.
Because that logic is completely flawed. how your logic works is simply applying that every player is at a base set of skills and you playing at a higher lvl raises the chances that you will win which isn't true.. Take my last game for instance when I was blitz. I played like a gold player in a silver match.. so using your logic I should have had a higher chance of winning cause I knew what to play to counter the enemy team .. well how does my game turn out? I got a 2nd time draven who fed. and took wrong runes, I got a top lane that afked and left cause he went 0-3 top vs renekton I had a mid veiger who lost his lane to a kayle after game I come to find out.. I was some how set up with 2 silvers.. a bronze 1 and a bronze 3.. Enemy team had 5 straight silvers. what you seem to forget is that Duo queue is not a solid. solo queing experience.. It's a broken system because riot allows duo queue which artificially boosts players and throws them into a higher ranking then they should which right has admitted this slight artificial boost to balance duo queueing.. also
Saezio (EUNE)
: > While it's true that if you're good you will climb, the climb speed in lower elos is much slower than in higher elos assuming the player who wants to climb is of equal or similar skill as the rank he wants to climb from. If someone is of equal or similar skill as the rank he/she wants to climb _from_ , they shouldn't be able to climb. they are in the correct rank if they are playing with people of similar skill level on average. If you can consistently win your lane (let's not say 9/10 times, let's say win lane hard 7/10 times) and are much more useful to their team than their lane opponent 7/10 times then they will definitely climb. They maybe won't have a 70% winratio cause you can't hard carry them all, but making the game essentially 4v5 does grant you a win chance way higher than 50%
See the problem with your thinking is " Similar skill as the rank" The reason its so hard to climb is because there are a lot of players in ranks that don't match their skills or abilities.
: The reason most people are stuck in silver/gold
Yea that's one reason, But not "THE REASON" SIlver and bronze are hard places to get out of because the skill Gap is so huge in this area of the ranked system that riot had to create iron and still the pool of skill is stupefying In Silver you got the follow. Trolls, Smurfs Smurf Trolls New players Ragers, Unskilled Those who want to climb Account boosters Twitch Streamers ( watch me climb from bronze to Plat) I could go on and on about why people don't climb but honestly to type up that much of a report only to have it down voted to oblivion isn't worth the effort
: see, you seem to have the notion that climbing higher = better teammates. while statistically speaking this is true (and remember, applies to the enemy team as well), feeding will happen regardless of elo.
no get your point, but there is a difference between, losing by skill. and losing cause a person has no idea what he's doing or trolling. you would just seem to think this wouldn't happen instantly 5 games in a row the moment you rank up so you almost magically default down a rank again with out even a given chance.

Pretty much..

not really a vote bot just how honest low elo players feel. people get sick and tired of these advertisements. because its the very reason why low rank sucks and what causes artificial boosting

: Smurfing really isn't cool. This type of series has been done to death. All you're doing is ruining games for bronze/silver/gold players.
Gotta agree. This is the very thing that ruins the lower ranks and has been done to death. And all you've done is prove the point people make that, Streamers do this just to "BOOST" their twitch views while they kick kittens in lower ranking. really wish riot would do something about this but smurf accounts boost their numbers. it just sucks.
KTFresh (NA)
: Account penalties should be handled by humans, not a bot
Honestly , I agree with the OP, but I would also say riot needs to have a Better Definition of what is TOXIC and what is Frustration. I'm a firm believer that this is a competitive game, and in these types of games, people can get frustrated and upset when losing. This is a Esport game, players want to play competitive and like any sport when you start to lose you get frustrated not only with yourself but your team members as well. And Riot needs to stop Bullshitting themselves and realize that this game is pretty trolly and frustrating and their ranking system is FAR from perfect on giving 50/50 Game chances between smurfs, and trolls and trolling smurfs, and so on . So yes people will say stuff like DUDE you suck or UGH I hate this player all he's doing is feeding. and so on because yes its frustrating and people need to vent, and how do you not expect people to vent in a game when most the communication is via Typing in ALL chat or Chat. But with that said. Riot needs to understand and have a more unified definition of what TOXIC behavior is because frustration venting is WAAAAAY different then some one Being toxic and telling some one to Kill themselves, or Insert Racist remark here. or dropping off Swear words at some one or hoping they die or some thing.

: Generally the afk is due to a argument between that laner and the jungler
Naw I've seen mid laners talk trash in champion select about how Zoe counters Zed hard core, Then zoe goes 0-4 demanding when the hell Zed got a buff and how riot needs to nerf him. All the while you remember yourself saying " Pls Ban Zed, if no one is going to pick him" and the Zoe replies, " Let them, I'm a one trick pony Diamond smurf with Zoe, trust me this lanes going to be easy as fuck" end game Zoe is 2-12-1 and raging at their jungle for not ganking and helping her with zed and that we are all Bronze and silver scrubs and they are going back to their Diamond account cause players are to brain dead to win vs a Zed.
Leon4167 (NA)
: Sounds like top laners. Honestly as a Top main I've simply accepted I'll never receive help and most the time don't bother pushing into tower unless I can see enemy jungler on the map. Unless you're talking about a laner who just simply can't stop feeding cause they want to go 20/0/0 and Darius just laughs in their face as he rips them up some more.
Oh I've seen those players, Were you that Darius!? Cause that's usually a common thing I get. Enemy picks Darius my team gets Nasus then dies 5 times in 5 min and rages that he hasn't gotten a gank yet. Then 2 minutes in when he dies the 6th time he says " I give up, our jungle sucks and deserves this loss i'm int feeding now" and enemy team asks " umm Haven't you been doing that already?" hahaha yup I had to take a break from jungling and go back to supporting cause this shit was just to toxic for me.

Whether you should or shouldn't be able to do it is another argument entirely, but as it stands right now everyone is on an even playing field when it comes to these applications.
The fact its a overlay that you don't have to look people up it literally pulls the information up in your hud. with out any effort is whats ridiculous. for the amount of information you receive aka, STATs, who they use,, Who they main, win ratio who to ban. based off their strongest champs. that's a crap tone information .. YOu say " oh its not hard to google a person info and name but you seem to forget that. " you don't know the person name till AFTER champion select and in the loading screen.. Now During champion select / able to dodge.. screen.
Kai Guy (NA)
: Its on paper 50/50, Look into MMR and Elo's Systems and you learn the actual expectations that it will need to adjust over time to correctly place players by the consistency of their play. The joke is how many folks assume MMR magical knows a players skill with no data to support it. I see so many Tilt threads and folks hammer on and on about their theory's but don't even know something as basic as K factor and its relation to Adjustment formulas. So many can be TLDR I don't know how it works but riots system needs to FAVOR ME SPECEFICALLY!
I would agree, I simply play for fun now, but for this i'm just not understanding the allowing of third party apps that literally give you a break down of your team the enemy team and also a break down of their favorite champs who they like to use and who to ban. its like wow how is this not a huge advantage for people who use this?
: Done trying in Ranked, Now just playing for fun
So its been a few days since I said screw it i'm done trying in ranked. And honestly i'm having a lot more fun, Yes I still play ranked, and my ranked has Taken a Hard nose dive just to crappy teams / trolls / Feeders/ and so on.. but you know what,? I just don't care and i'm still having fun. I've just accepted this ranking system sucks, and honestly Ranked games are basically normal games now so why am I going to get stressed over a normal game match?

: A warning should be given to players every time the Instant Feedback System confirms a report.
Riot had it happen in the past that when you got reported it said " hey .. Get your shit together and calm the fuck down" wonder why they took that away
: So if Third party Cheating is a punishable offense and bannable
Because you shouldn't be able to do that in ranked.. Matches as riot points out are designed to be 50/50 (granted that is a joke) but still gives a huge unfair advantage for those who don't use it and those who do.

: This shit is so stupid. Literally if every single person playing in diamond+ right now stopped playing and hopped on a smurf there still wouldn't be enough smurfs to have one per game. The amount of actual smurfs in low ELO is tiny. The amount of people complaining that anyone who does well is a smurf is through the roof. The amount of people who play hundreds of games then find one with a smurf and use it as some bullshit excuse to ignore the other hundreds of games is through the roof.
Not saying every one Is a smurf but there are a lot of people who do smurf. Low elo is bad enough dealing with People who purposely troll games or dealing with artificially boosted duo queues, but then you have to also deal with Smurfs who are purposely throwing games or some that are steam rolling kittens to raise their views on twitter with their "Bronze to what ever rank" I mean shit.. hard enough to win when I' in bronze silver 4 and get demoted back to bronze one cause I get a lovely pair of duo queue Iron 1-2 people who Think Zoe is a S tier support.

What? There are no laws against collecting phone numbers. Both Dota and CSGO do it. Source on your 40% number?
Gotta agree there is no law against registering your accounts. Riot just doesn't do it because that is how they make their numbers up. Example riot can actively say they are a number 1 game because they have some billion active accounts. Where here is a bit of information for you. ALL accounts are active that are created even if you don't play it even if its a smurf account its a active account and stays active till riot bans the account and locks it down. Riot Knows that their new player intake has taken a huge hit. That's why they finally after 9 fricken seasons tried to make a stance against artificial boosting ( a rather weak one ) But is also the VERY reason why riot Still won't remove duo queue from solo queue. Because do you have any idea how huge that would be on messing up their smurfing numbers? If you can't smurf and boost a account, then people will go back to selling accounts. which is hard against their rules and their numbers will tumble. cause they will have to enforce it.. But riot doesn't have any rules vs. " Getting boosted as you duo with a "Friend""
: Can't tell if complaining about smurfs which riot has said time and time again are ok, or you are just plugging CSGO :P
Riot has said its OK to have smurfs. But that doesn't mean that smurfs aren't ruining the lower rankings which they are. I mean hell make a new account and see how many people get blasted for playing bad. A new player can't even start the game with out getting raged at by a smurf trying to lvl another account. Heck my little brothers tried to get into this game and both quit because they were told to kill themselves while they were lvl 14 trying to learn how to play champions by a smurf playing a new account.

: Why do people hate playing support?
Issue with support is , you’re the first to be blamed for anything going wrong You’re usually the only one warding period (depends on rank) If you accidentally auto on minion or, you accidentally kill some one. You have to be mentally prepared for the verbal on slaughter after

: Going to be a hypocrite here I despise duos, but I didn't want to have to deal with the grind this season, I was gold last season, so I had a s8 master friend to help me during my promos to get to gold. Boosting exist.
Least you admit it But this is the issue that happens people get artificially boosted granted you said a friend but their are others who hire people on discord for boostings
: The majority of the accounts you call to be smurf are probably players of your similar elo on good games.
Naw there are some that are really easy to tell example the riven I had a few games ago. Constantly has 20/5 and what ever game in the past 20 games but obviously throws games as seen in the replays. To keep his mmr below promotion

: LF duo for ranked climb to gold prefer a jng main !
I'd offer to duo with you, I jungle main, but after so many years of being stuck in silver and bronze cause I Refuse to duo queue i'm realizing that really the only way to climb now is by Duo queing.
: LP Losses and Gains
yea I just hate losing cause you get trolled by int feeders or people just being toxic. I lose more games ranked because of int feeders or people artificially boosted due to duo queue or just the simple I get the team that doesn't have a smurf streaming his might kitten kicking feats from iron to plat
: When the toxic community is taking it's tole on you
Issue is honestly the community and the fact that they punish every one with out consideration example. The dev's have made it horribly and easily simple to troll non stop with smurf accounts. You can troll to your hearts delight because you can do it with smurf account and not have your main account punished.. What also does it is that Smurfing is out of control now. and riot does nothing to it because that boosts their numbers by all the smurf accounts made. This just leads to Trolls smurfing account just to let off steam and troll lower ranks or the constant influx of smurf youtubers that have those " Watch me kick kittens in iron all the way up to plat" WOOOO Riot doesn't get that .. losing matches that bad.. is draining and leads to a lot of rage from people because its one thing to be beaten cause you had a bad game.. and lost a fair match.. its another to lose a match because some Plat player decided to beat a baby seal, in bronze and the entire time act like a dick saying GG noobs and what not all game long.. or Another game with some jerk int feeding or picking a troll champ and saying" I don't care.. its a smurf account"
: Using chat = being toxic 2K19
Pretty much.. Most people don't get the venting of frustration and being hateful and toxic. honestly I just now announce at the start " I am muting team and pings at the start of the game" and do so.. i'm not losing my account to typing hi in chat
: God I have enought of favoritism toward popular champion to remain OP
A lot of those champs I wouldn't even consider OP except {{champion:517}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:75}} - is just because his broken slow and the fact his stacks don't drop on his death like other champions with the same mechanic. {{champion:238}} - is just broken with how much damage he can out put. his mobility is a joke, and lets not forget his ridiculous synergy with items {{champion:122}} - That bleed is just a joke, really no way to off set how much damage and how long that bleed lasts. {{champion:157}} - Is just his mobility , the fact he can build up his Personal shield soo often now and don't get me started on "God Wall" {{champion:517}} - Just needs to be nerfed, to oblivion then riot builds him back up, because right now his sustain is broken, the fact all he has to do is land his grab and bam just finger roll his abilities on you to oblivion. And if you get him low oh one ability and bam half his hp is back.. and he gets a lovely shield with another yeaaaaa
