: Stop banning TOXIC behavior, here's why.
You don't have to be "offended" for someone's bad behavior to negatively impact your enjoyment of the match. Reporting negative behavior isn't a statement that "this behavior offends me", but that it's ruining the fun. You say that it is 6-8 y/o kids with a problem, but I feel it is the ones who can't behave themselves who have maturing to do.
: Is there a way to access my 2017 year in review page now?
Nope sorry, looks like they took the page down. https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/featured/year-in-review-2017#/

Players should mute everyone they want, if they feel like to, and they can keep playing their game without being influenced. Toxic players could get a chat restriction penalty and if their insults are way too much and targeted, 7-days ban should be applied MAX. > * Any kind of hate speech such as homophobia, sexism, racism, and ableism. -----> Same with above, but stricter control, reaching punishments such as Permanent ban in extreme repeated cases. We see this suggestion a lot, usually from players who have been punished themselves. There are a few problems with it. * Muting first requires that a player either mute ALL players (and thus not see communication), or be exposed to the initial toxicity. * Muting as a solution to the problem puts the responsibility on those not breaking the rules. * Increasing chat restrictions or repeated temporary bans have been shown, by Riot's experiments, to not actually sufficiently reduce toxicity or encourage reform. * The community in general has, by and large, indicated that they don't WANT toxic players in the game, whether they're muted or not. This is doubly true as every player who is restricted is someone you can't rely on to pass needed information or discuss strategy. In short, this sort of suggestion has many downsides, and the only upside is one for toxic players themselves -- more freedom to be toxic. I can't support a change that makes toxicity easier to recover from while also providing no benefit (and in fact several downsides) to non-toxic players. >Intentionally ruining the game for other players with in game actions such as griefing, feeding, or purposely playing in a way to make it harder for the rest of the team. ---- Should be taken very seriously. Then, a several days ban is applied and then the permanent suspension to be delivered. This is precisely how this works. Once identified and confirmed (as Riot does not wish to punish innocent players) they apply a 14-day ban on the first offense, and a permanent ban on any subsequent offenses. >Cheating/Boosted accounts ---- Cheaters can be detected by Riot after someone has reported them. As for boosted accounts, it is some times obvious when a player achieves really bad scores in a high elo in a row of ranked games, but some times it is not. In both cases, this should be treated equally with the 3rd point above, but this time the punishment should be applied instantly and be permanent. This is how the system works now. If the account is cheating, it is permanently banned when discovered. If the account is boosting by having someone else play on it, it is permanently banned when discovered. There is no penalty for playing with a friend who may be better than you, however, as that would go against *League's* idea that you CAN play with your friends. >I think is better to let off steam in a game after a tough day/week at work,school or life in general, than lashing out to people or situations in our everyday life. It's not better to vent at people virtually, no. Just because the results of your harassment and insults aren't as relevant to your actual life doesn't mean that your top laner deserves to be the target of your frustration any more than your boss does.
Boosting ban is actually 14 day and loss of all current/previous Ranked rewards for the first time, then Permaban the second time, rather than permaban on the first offense. https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201751834
: I honestly wish Mobi boots didn't exist, they're such a noob trap item
It's not a noob trap, you just can't buy *whatever you want* in every situation. They are meant for quick roaming, not battle stats. You get them on roaming assassins and supports, typically. Infinity Edge is a great item, but you don't want it on AP champions; that doesn't mean it's a noob trap item because you bought it on Azir (in any situation), for instance.
: What were some of the very first video games you ever played?
The first games I played were Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt and Tetris on the NES. I was young then and did not spend much time on it, but got into it a lot more with the N64. Goldeneye 007, Megaman 64, Starfox 64, Banjo Kazooie, Gauntlet Legends, Ocarina of Time; those were the kinds of games that really started me with gaming, and Blizzard's PC games moved me to the PC.
Içè (EUW)
: wtf is this riot justice?
By definition of your admitted actions, inting (described as "*intentional* feeding"), you were to blame. I get that you are upset and the other person's actions absolutely were not ok, but responding by ruining the game for everyone else can't be the answer. Please try to understand that there are other players in the game which your actions affect, and you'd hate it if someone else did the the same. Mute them, play the game as best you can with what you're given so that you aren't part of the problem, and report the player at the end. That's the best you can do, and it should be fairly easy to do if you are considerate of the other players.

Thanks for the heads up. Been looking forward to improved security for a long time, 2FA in particular!
: Does it also stop me from seeing them spal Ctrl + 1-3?
Ya it stops those ones, laugh/taunt/dance/whatever the other is. Neither the animation nor the sound will play.
: Can we do something about Laugh spamming?
Muting the player's chat will also stop their emotes.
: Forum Design Player behaviour
Standardization across as many regions as possible is being worked on! However, the PB board is not appropriate for this discussion so I will be locking this post. The right place for discussing the Boards platform itself would be [Discuss the Boards](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/community-moderation), so please feel free to repost your content over there to continue the discussion. You can also reach out to us on the [Moderation Discord](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/community-moderation/7rtKBZLi-boards-moderation-discord-verification) for inquiries about the Boards/Moderation.

: Got Fake Reports after games (Anti-Faker-report system is needed)
The "Instant Report Feedback" you got was indicating that one of *your* reports against *someone else* resulted in a punishment. You do not receive notifications that someone else reported you, but it's understandable to be confused about what the popup is; make sure to read new popups entirely! Also you don't have to worry about false reporting from multiple players; reports do not stack in any way. 9 players reporting you simply triggers a review of your behavior, the same as 1 report will do. The system does not judge you differently based on volume of reports in the match, only on the content of your chat logs and actions, then issues punishment (or not) based on the severity and frequency of offenses. If 4 trolls report you and you didn't do anything wrong you can't be punished, and your report against all of them will still result in each of them being reviewed (even if you did do something wrong and are punished, your reports are still effective against them).
: Why does this board exsist?
Most players just need a little bit of general information about the game and the punishment systems, they don't need to have a one-on-one with Player Support to get that; most players that need help aren't permabanned, they are wanting to voice suggestions or concerns about the player behavior systems or the behavior of other players, and there are many other players educated enough about it to talk to them or players that have the same questions and want to have a discussion about it. The board is not where you come to actually *contest* a punishment, it's just where you come to talk about these things with fellow players.

: Why don't they just add a requirement for email/phone/address for accounts so they dont have smurfs
Account security and smurf prevention is something they continue to work on, I think the smurf mitigation technique used in Clash (SMS authentication) is partially a test for improved security and account linking that they may utilize. However, they do realize this and you should keep this in mind, not everyone has access to a phone for 2FA through SMS and the other methods aren't perfect either (multiple phones, free email creation etc.).

Nah, all chat punishments were forgiven and reset. He may be referring to Honor restrictions preventing him from receiving rewards?
: The odds of getting some is high enough that getting all of them isn't totally unheard of. Look at it this way. The matchmaker already put you with people near your MMR. Then after a win or loss all of you get the same MMR increase or decrease. If all 5 players queue up instantly it'll probably put them all in the same game because out of the pool of players in the queue, those 4 other players are the closest in MMR to you.
: Getting the same ppl as the previous game happens pretty often. Have you never noticed?
Kags (NA)
: Random Nami Buff?
I think Aqua Prison is fine. It does take practice to do well with, and some champions are much harder to nail with it, but overall the size and speed are not bad. Keep practicing with it and try to anticipate where the enemy wants to go!
: In ranked solo, why the hell am I being put on a team with 4 people who played together last game
The chance of this happening is nearly zero usually because you can't queue as 4 (neither in flex or solo), but if everyone queues up again immediately after a match together then they A) have similar enough mmr to be matched together and B) are the same priority in matchmaking, so the chances some of them see each other again is much higher.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: May 25
I think shields should reward fast reaction and good anticipation of incoming damage; keep them strong but low duration. I don't think you need to differentiate between gifted and self-shielding for this.

: Honor System... is it Me or Does it Not Work
Your post is a little confusing, and I hope you can clarify what you're talking about; Honor 0 is the lowest and 5 the highest, idk why you'd be looking to get Honor 1. You default to level 2 each season and only drop if punished with a chat restriction or ban. What do you mean you "went from Honor 5 to nothing because I dodged"? They did reset last season's Honor to the default level 2 (+1 checkpoint per level you had), but this season it's harder to get because it's tuned for the entire season (it was introduced with like 1/4th of the season left so was easier to climb then). You mention you've "seen about 5 players with level 2". Maybe you're only looking at players who were punished or just don't play the game much; anyone that plays regularly is probably around level 4. The rewards aren't that great really, but it's something. The flair is pretty neat, you get a Ward skin at the end of the season, you get key fragments and a little BE each checkpoint, and you can earn the old RAF rewards Medieval Twitch and Grey Warwick. You don't really have to be a beacon of positivity and a hard carry to climb, you just have to play the game and be sportsmanlike.
: Must be nice to never be wrong.
It's worded to be vague and broad so that it's difficult to impossible for players to be huge problems and avoid punishment because it's "technically not against the rules". They don't seek ways to punish you for no reason; if they have to invoke vague and broad rules, which they will almost never do, it's for a very good reason.
: How does one become a Chat Moderator?
We do keep an eye out for members of the community that prove to be helpful and knowledgeable with a record of good behavior on the Boards, but usually we recruit moderators in groups when we need more, and at that time we'll put out a recruitment post pinned on the Home page. Your best path to become a mod is just to make a good name for yourself and think about how you can positively contribute to the community, and apply when we start recruiting! I don't think we need to do an open recruitment soon, though. You *do* mean a mod for the Boards, right?
: Is the account named Soraka banned?
They actually lock out champion names :( You Sorakan't choose it.
: Welp..just going to say it: I've lost interest in League
: You know damn well what I mean, Riot needs to get off their lazy asses and fix hitboxes already by making their bullshit size match the animation.
They can't really just do that as easily as you think. A skillshot with a wide hitbox for balance purposes could be HUGE, or inversely the hitbox be shrunk down to the size of the object and be significantly more difficult to use; visually and balance-wise, they are like this for a good reason.
: There is nothing more tilting than seeing that one frame where hook abilities split into 2
It doesn't split or change direction, the edges of the hitboxes met and it centers the animation (so it's not hooked onto just a pixel or seemingly nothing).

If you still can't submit a ticket you can tweet [@riotsupport](https://twitter.com/RiotSupport) and they can help you there in a DM when they are open.

: What if u have 2 phone numbers for clash verification?
It's not a perfect solution, but it absolutely will mitigate a lot of smurfing. Unfortunately there is no way to 100% prevent smurfing for people that are intent to get around it.

The Boards are not an appropriate place to discuss politics, as they too often go awry and devolve into flaming each other and baseless insults or accusations.

: I know this is a year old but I don't understand step 3 at all. I'm not a computer scientist, I don't know how to navigate to any deploys of anything.
When you go to the subfolders noted in your League of Legends folder, the deepest one will be a string of numbers similar to the one mentioned in the comment. This changes as the game is patched so will be different, just find the highest number; that is the most recent "deploy" of the game. Keep in mind you can't play an old rofl through a newer patch (though if you're ambitious, you can save the entire game file elsewhere before the next patch and use this process to direct rofl's from that patch to it).

A lot of people from the boards. Check ARAM only account threads, a lot of people actually claim that they aren't real.

I think you're mistaking that some people say they aren't a problem, not that they don't exist. I think they are a problem too, but to a lesser degree than most. I'd also like it if Riot made some changes to ARAM to alleviate the "not-quite-random" and balance issues, but we both already know that's not a high priority.

: Mind Control approach was something I was really excited about on paper. Once in game though it just ended up feeling like mini Banner of Command all the time. Optimal play was still just grab cannons and push, just with a bigger swing since you'd also gained a minion. When strong also lead to Mind Control versus Mind Control lanes (was its own counter) that got bogged down with not very interesting minion combat. We're looking at other approaches to Minion Dematerializer as a result. Generally like the 'kill a minion' part, waveclear part hasn't worked out as hoped (were looking for a safety valve/fallback, has ended up being too much an unsatisfying but optimal and should be default for some champs).
If wave control is a goal, how about a consumable that causes the minion wave to increase their movespeed (let's say for simplicity you just globally target an allied or enemy inhibitor), causing that team's lane to push faster temporarily? If you want the enemy to push more so you can farm closer to your turret, you force their wave to move faster. If you want to push a lane similarly to Banner of Command, such as bot when you're setting up for Baron, use it on yours (difference from Banner is that an AP champ can stop it).
: Well my top 2 played are Soraka and Alistair. So I think I count.
There are 5 tiers of Honor (you start at 2 each season) and they each have 3 checkpoints; as you accumulate Honor and play honorably, you'll climb up each checkpoint and receive rewards at each checkpoint.
