if riot could actually care about the integrity of their game or at least tell us why they cant catch people unless they're a pro, that would be somewhat informative at least.

i dont see why "toxic" people must be eradicated, but boosting is a ok

It's unlikely, but I feel like that can actually happen without a boosting situation.

So anyone who waited until end-of-season to get boosted probably got caught. its possible that person did get in trouble. they do not ban your account for first time offenders, they just strip all end of season rewards, including past seasons. its the 2nd offense you get perma banned for.

: It is a roll of the dice because Riot has been doing their damnedest to make sure full-solo carrying is nigh impossible to accomplish. At the least you will have to rely on at least 1 other person, and usually it's that 1 mistake you or he/she makes that loses the game, even though you played everything else perfectly, and the only reason you hadn't won earlier was because every other player on your team was screwing up every 3 seconds. That said I think there are too many people who have absolutely NO RESPECT FOR THEIR OPPONENTS AT ALL. For example: I was mid ez (AP) against lux. I had tear and chalice, lux had mejais. Among other things, their bot lane was winning, and I started following lux after a roam to bot. Nothing much happened so I started to suggest we all leave... Until the jungle riven comes flying in with his duo top TP to try get a 2v5 penta. Now I had no damage at this point and bot was already chunked, yet when they got fucked up by lux (she got a triple) it was my fault. And this is something I see too much. People just wander into the enemy team thinking they are bots or something idk. Then they get destroyed and wonder how.

QFT solo q is just miserable, because the skill differences between players low diamond and below are just too broad.

Well they can make the skin just a participation reward, play 10 games, get placed, get the skin. Maybe give another skin for diamond that is purchasable by everybody. Or give them an exclusive emote on the account that you can only use if you reached diamond. All having rewards at such a low elo level does is make it to where players get boosted constantly, and riot has shown they dont have the tools to punish these players.

: How to report elo boosting
truthfully i would say dont bother. i've submitted tickets on so many people that i even have first hand experience watching them get boosted(since i know them irl) and they still have their rank and will be getting rewards. so ya... dont bother.
: Sounds to me like you are running on the on-board mother board graphics, motherboards have integrated graphics in order to allow you to boot up your machine without a video card in order to install new ones etc, i can't see the pictures, but i'm assuming this could be the case if you do not see a visable video card, if there is a open slot for one, check if it is pci or pci express etc, and also check to see what your power supply is, and buy a video card, i have two computers, 1 is my main rig, and the other is my back up rig, my back up rig has a 80$ geforce gt 640, which is probably cheaper by now, and it runs league at 100+ fps with max settings, but it also has an i5 thats about 3.5ghz, SO that being said: Check to see if you have a video card, MAKE SURE, if you do not have one in the computer, you are running on the mother boards integrated on board graphics, and will need to purchase a video card to fit the slot(if there is one) i know a lot of older computers don't even have a slot for a vid card. ASSUMING you do have an open slot, because again i cannot see the photo, like i said, figure out what slot, and figure out what your power supply is and purchase a video card accordingly, it doesn't take a super card to run league, so you don't have to get all crazy with it, but be careful to buy the correct video card to fit that slot if there is one! pci express and plain old pci DO NOT FIT. If you could post a picture, that would help me out a lot, and then i could help you a lot better, if i could see the insides of the computer, then i can give you a much more accurate response, best regards! c:

Also the graphics card that looks like it will fit has 2 monitor outlets on it, that wouldnt do anything for this computer(they wouldnt be sticking out of the computer)

alright thank you. i hope this helps. i just get this disgusted feel when i watch this guy just get boosted right in front of me, and its really disgusting because this is a double account elo boosting job and its on like a 20+ win streak with champions the original owner never plays. and the scores are like 10-0-8 and multiple pre 20 minute stomps. its pretty disgusting, and if riot cant catch this account as a boosted account, then i just lose all faith. but it will take time, i just hope it doesnt take like a year or something ridiculous.
: If you want to be sure it's brought to Riot's attention, your best bet is to submit a support ticket. It'll take time for them to investigate the case, and Riot *won't* tell you what actions (if any) they eventually take. Still, if you're correct - and I'm not saying that you aren't, just that I have no way to know either way - they'll figure it out. The specialists who investigate these cases are *very* good at their jobs.

Ill tell you what i dont think though, I dont think that 1 minute a player could be in washington on league then the next second log off and back on in canada. also i dont believe somebody could be at work in washington and playing league of legends at the same time in canada. ya, I dont believe that is possible. correct me if i am wrong though.

: So riot doesnt care about elo boosting anymore?
Is there a time frame i should expect riot to deal with the account? and is there any proof i can provide for riot that will help them if they "miss" the account? I am kind of fueled by anger towards this person now, since he was supposedly a friend until last night where he showed his true colors. and what best way to get back at him than to ban his account that is being boosted? I know that sounds messed up, but it is what it is.
: How I see your post: * Your title is clickbait. Intentional or no. Non-existant conspiracy with no actual evidence. * As has been mentioned in the other comments you obviously have not taken time to think about your suggestion in detail, which in turn invalidates your opinion on Riot's performance. * anything else has been covered in Jublinaut's comment, please answer her/his post, I'll be on the lookout.

I am not account name dropping or anything, I am just uninformed of the whole catching elo booster process and curious as to if they actually still punish boosters. if it takes a long time to catch people, then fine, i was not aware. I am just personally in the dark and i cant stand people that boost and want to make sure they get what they deserve, as bad as that sounds.
: I have a quick question: How do you know that Riot isn't currently investigating this account? The punishments for elo-boosting are quite severe, so they have quite a burden of proof. As such, they take those investigations seriously, and don't apply sanctions until they're quite certain. Since your tone implies that you think they've completed an investigation and found the player innocent, I'd like to know why you think this.
