: Riot is ruining the Aesthetic of this game
Through their own negligence and incompetence, Riot has shown themselves incapable of keeping the game in a state anywhere close to balanced or competitive. In order to keep things "fresh," they wildly make changes to everything by turn, regardless of whether or not it actually improves the game or is even popular. You can see this design principle in both the way they treat the features of their game, as well as the way they balance champions and roles with a dartboard.

Wildly funny, brilliant non-linear storytelling, amazing cast (samuel l jackson, john travolta, uma thurman, bruce willis, christopher walken, and more), incredibly quotable, it's pretty much just got it all.

: Support Mains of the Boards: Why do you supp? ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ
To begin with, I play mostly DotA, but I tend to support in both games. I find last hitting to be extremely boring in lane, especially League where there's really no form of wave manipulation, so you're just statically last hitting constantly. It's the support who makes the plays in lane, it's the supports who set up objectives by laying down vision, and at least in DotA, I find it's the supports who have the most impactful ultimate abilities to turn fights. Mostly though, I find it a challenge to make the biggest impact with the least amount of farm, and that really appeals to me. Also happens to keep expectations lower :)

The game before this we won in like 19 minutes after trilaning their antimage back into the stone age. And our Lycan somehow crushed 1v2 in the top lane.

I'm sure he'd be gratified to know how deeply triggered you are by his words over the internet. Maybe consider not giving these people the attention and justification they desire, ignore them, and they're much more likely to stop than based on whatever punishment Riot gives them.

Pikachu aka "Gem" was a girl who got her boyfriend XJ9 to boost her, I believe she then pretended to be dead for a while, got XJ9 into some sort of suicidal state, then when she came back he sent death threats and got banned. Meanwhile she never received any sort of punishment despite the boosting and manipulation because of her friend RiotJay, and was in fact allowed to get a name change. Was some entertaining old GD drama since most threads and discussions criticizing her were suppressed and deleted by said Rioter. Keep in mind this was like 6 years ago.
: Why Do You Stay In This Game
The answer is: I don't really. Decided to come back and play a bit for shits and giggles. Turns out the game is worse than ever. No real reason to stop playing DotA. Boards are a kind of amusing community though. I like you guys.

Nobody can argue that the client is acceptable, or that the balance team has any idea what they're doing. Punishing players is pretty difficult in a free to play game. Obviously you don't want the punishment to be so severe that players would just rather make new accounts to get around the punishments, because then they have no reason to hold back whatsoever. But if there are no punishments you run the risk of lowering the integrity of the game. I guess my main question for DotA's system, is how does it define the term toxic? Someone who leaves half their games might be toxic, but so would someone who insults other players. They might both be toxic, but in different ways. Should the leaver really be forced to play with crude or racist players? The main thing I should point out about my post, is that I dislike Leaverbuster _specifically_ for ranked. Because if you leave games you _do_ get put in a separate matchmaking que, because you lose LP even if your team wins without you, and therefore drop in rank while your teammights will rise. This makes it so people who leave games too often and without reason will inevitably fall into low elo. If you don't leave the game and put very little effort into winning, you can still be carried by your team and gain LP, rising with your team and staying in their matchmaking que. With this said, leaverbuster might be fine for normals as there is pretty much zero incentive to stay in the game, but to be fair leaverbuster still might have the issue of keeping toxic players locked into games and creating a worse environment for everybody.

Someone who leaves half their games might be toxic, but so would someone who insults other players. They might both be toxic, but in different ways. Should the leaver really be forced to play with crude or racist players? I believe that both leavers and toxic behavior decreases your behavior score, although I believe it's weighed much more heavily towards leavers. So you need to shit talk a lot more in order to end up queued with the serial ragequitters. The idea is like you said, they don't feel the incentive to create a new (free) account because they can keep playing, but they also end up out of the same player pool as the non-toxic playerbase.
