: Everytime I get a false report for behavior
Uh... what? There are no "false reports." Everything is automated, you can't break the system by mass reporting people.
: makes no sense. in my 8 years of playing i literally send in over 50 tickets alone FOR STRAIGHT UP INTING and i mean literally running it down mid doing nothing else. and not a single person ever got punished. but with how riot opperates i wouldnt be surprised if you get special supporters.
>makes no sense. in my 8 years of playing i literally send in over 50 tickets alone FOR STRAIGHT UP INTING and i mean literally running it down mid doing nothing else. 1 - I don't know how many times I have to explain this, _**there is a queue when filing a report for someone you claim is intentionally feeding. **_ I **seriously** doubt you filed a support ticket on someone and checked back every single day for over a year to verify that they weren't punished. And even if you did, **if you somehow managed to stay that hyperfocused on one person you reported,** errors can occur and you have no concrete way to verify that they were punished. I also feel the need to explain to you that support ticket punishments are manually placed, meaning they don't follow the standard punishment ladder. So while you're sitting there waiting for someone to get a 14-day ban (which again, I seriously doubt you sat there for any substantial period of time to verify this) they might have received as little as a 1 or 3 day ban which they already burned through. Educate yourself on the system before you try to point out it's flaws. 2 - What did I say earlier? _Your_ bad experience doesn't indicate the entire system as a failure. I got my wallet stolen in New York once, the cops never did anything about it. Does that mean all NY police are useless? >but with how riot opperates i wouldnt be surprised if you get special supporters. Everything I say is of my own volition, I'm not some sheep or blind follower. Don't try and insinuate things about people you know nothing about. End of discussion.
: you and your useless tickets lol. can you stop that shit alrdy.
_Your_ bad experience isn't indicative of the whole system being useless. Best option will always be to report them in game or through a ticket whether you like it or not. I've had great experiences with tickets, therefore I'm going to continue to suggest that method to others. Don't like it? Move to another board.

[** File a support ticket,**](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) don't post people's names here as it violates our [Name & Shame](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/community-moderation/ITFIpNUE) rule.
: Need help learning to play
Unfortunately there will always be rude people in League, same as any other game. It happens, don't let them get to you. Everyone has to start somewhere, even those players you watched on Twitch were in the same spot as you at one point. If you're genuinely trying to learn the game, one of the best things you can do is party up with more experienced or knowledgeable players and hop into some normals with them. First hand experience is usually the most effective. If you're looking for people to party up with, check out the [**League of Legends NA Discord server**](https://discordapp.com/invite/leagueoflegends) or make a post right here on the Boards in [**General Discussion **](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-discussion)or [**Player Recruitment,**](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/looking-for-player) although I think your best bet would be to use that Discord server. If you want really informative game discussion, check out the [**Summoner School Reddit,**](https://www.reddit.com/r/summonerschool/) there's a bunch of helpful information posted there daily. The official [**League of Legends subreddit**](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/) might be helpful too, although that's more geared towards news and content updates.
: Read the whole post before commenting or voting.
>It's evident in their responses. My last post was downvoted by people who like the idea of Singed. Though the post mentioned Singed and many others, it had absolutely nothing to do with him. The post was actually about Pyke. I downvoted that post because it doesn't offer any meaningful gameplay discussion, you're literally just ranting about Pyke.
: Black Cleaver
For starters, this was nerfed over 2 years ago. You're a little late to the party on this one. Second, they had to change the build path and armor shred amount because every fighter was building it in every scenario, regardless of if there were any tanks on the enemy team or not. Lee Sin, Irelia, Wukong, Darius, literally every toplaner and some midlaners were building it just for it's power.

: Thanks for showing your Yasuo bias to the boards guys.
doubt (x) Riot doesn't delete posts, the Boards Moderation Team does. What was it removed for and why? Share the notification you were given. Also, this post doesn't fit in Gameplay so it might get removed for that.
: Guys I gotta slightly offtopic question but still idk where else to ask
If you're looking for something AFK, your only options are things like podcasts, videos, movies, and e-books. Unfortunately, League is a time and attention consuming game, you're not going to be able to accomplish much while playing (atleast, not enough to progress in a meaningful way.) You could maybe get away with something like playing OSRS or a mobile game but that might affect your actual in-game performance and cause you to be semi-AFK . Edit: and I'm not really sure if you're playing bot games or regular Rift games, but in the latter case I definitely wouldn't attempt to play anything else.

: I get the feeling I am getting banned from the board and the game by Hotarµ for being a troll and having nothing "helpful" to say. I completely understand the need to keep the board and the game as free of toxic behavior as possible. I also completely get a specialist deciding my pointless discussion on security just is not fun and that Hotarµ has to do what he/she has to do. However, just on the off chance someone at Riot does care and is listening, I would like to try one more time to restate my position. Please take a look at the videos for a product called SawStop. They can be found here: https://www.sawstop.com/why-sawstop/video-vault/ Or better yet here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCnW1poqAj4&t=302 Then ask if Riot's stance resulting in the banning of players for common mistakes that resulted in a compromise is similar to what happens when a common mistake is made with a classic table saw or similar to what happens with a SawStop? Is Riot putting the right tools into the hands of the players to help keep the common mistakes from escalating into bad results? Or do players just deserve to lose their fingers for making common mistakes? Full disclosure: SawStop is being used as metaphor. I do not work for them and do will not profit from the sale of their products. I'm not endorsing them and take no responsibility if their product doesn't work as advertised. They also didn't authorize me using their brand as a metaphor but hopefully it falls under fair-use.
Don't have the power to ban people, wouldn't ban someone for something as inconsequential as sarcastic remarks and going off-topic. I'm just not responding because I have no interest in the conversation and have nothing further to say. You're taking a simple post that says "Hey, touch up on your personal security where you can!" way too seriously. You're also trying to turn _my_ post into a platform for _your_ suggestions and concerns. You're also misunderstanding or misconstruing everything I say, like this: >And there it is. It "doesn't matter." SIGH I'm not saying it doesn't matter in the sense that it's _not important,_ I'm saying that it doesn't matter as **however good or bad Riot's system is, you should still take care of your personal data when you can because a faulty password is still a faulty password.** It's not that deep. So yeah, just not responding of my own volition.
: It's "converse," by the way.
Conversate is a word and it fits in this scenario. Google definition: >con·ver·sate /ˈkänvərˌsāt/ verb - INFORMAL •US **engage in conversation.** "sometimes it's nice to be able to sit and conversate" It's also [**defined by Mirriam-Webster.**](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/conversate)

: Why can't we productively conversate about champion sexuality without there being so much negativity
Uhh... did you even open the thread? The majority of comments are incredibly respectful. 4 Step Cadence in particular was very polite and understanding in their responses. There have only been 2-3 comments that could be considered "negative" and even then that's a bit of a stretch. Don't just pay attention to the votes. It happens, especially with a controversial title like that. Ignorant people are just going to downvote and move on, same as always.

Because much like the pathetic call of duty toddlers, this community is so coddled and wrapped up in themselves they throw the mother of all shitfits if they dont have "most kills" These kids will grind the entire game to a halt even on the verge of winning because someone ELSE got more kills than them, and then they cry about "you stole my kill!"

Have you ever played Call of Duty before? It's literally as far away from a "snowflake" community as you can get (if that were even a thing, which it's not.)

The game doesnt give a fuck about the sweet 37/2 kda you farmed up or the 5 "ez pentakill" you did to show how "better than thou" you are to your "trash team". When the enemy takes towers, dragons, Nexus. YOU LOSE! and yet people like me who point this out are told to "stfu and get carried kid" because "look at ur kills, ur trash". So yeah, as I said, Grinding up another account, and another, and another. I have nothing better to do. I have had a couple games where people realised "oh fuck, I got 18 kills and we are still losing" and they managed to wake up a bit and start focusing towers. But most of the games are ego kids who are only concerned about thier "big plays" and how many "more kills than u" they have. and Riot does absolutely fuck all to actually try and tell people that "you only win by taking nexus, you only get to nexus through towers" instead they just throw a skin at any problem. So yeah, Riot coddles an idiot sheep community. and wonders why it breeds "trolls" Have a lovely Defeat! > > Welcome to online gaming.
> Oh so informing them that they LOST because they IGNORED THE OBJECTIVES of an OBJECTIVE BASED GAME is flaming. Oh sorry for not giving them the proper asspats they wanted "way to go, we lost the entire match, but thats ok because look at those 20+ kills you managed to farm up" Again, no. You were punished because you didn't do it in a _civil_ way. You're allowed to say things like "Guys, push mid", "Take dragon", or "we need to group", etc. You don't have to suck up to anyone, you don't have to be their best friend, you just have to **not **flame them. > Yeah, I told them that they lost the match because they decided thier "double digit kills" are more important. > and every single time all I get back are "you need kills to win" > So they use that as an excuse to farm kills, never touch enemy towers becuase "you need kills for gold, and gold is how you win" > and I tell them "the game doesnt give a fuck how many kills you have. When the enemy takes our nexus, Its over. YOU LOSE. Kills actually _do_ matter. No kills = no agency in lane, no gold, no strong players in teamfights. No objectives = no map control, no objective control, low gold income. It's all about balance. You can't go around saying kills don't matter because they do, you just need to find the fine line between "team deathmatch" and "players who never leave lane and only CS/push towers." Anyways, again, you were punished for flaming your teammates. Say whatever you want about the state of the game or your teammates, everyone has bad teammates or ones they don't synergize with. It happens. Doesn't mean you can flame them.
: suspended for pointing out "you lose when you ignore towers"
>But I got suspended for pointing out that just having double digit kills means nothing. No you didn't, you got suspended for breaking the rules and flaming your teammates. There's no way you got punished for just saying "Double digit kills aren't important!" and I'll bet money on that. Share your unedited chat logs to prove me wrong. >And you fucking wonder why people int or afk? because unlike the pathetic call of duty snowflake community this game has coddled, Now, I understand the allure of throwing out the usual "snowflake/SJW/beta/liberal/etc" but "Call of Duty snowflake community"? ...what?

It's literally as far away from a "snowflake" community as you can get (if that were even a thing, which it's not.) >Because this community is too fucking stupid and self-centered to pay attention to anything other than "Look at ME and all MY kills. Look how amazing I am compared to you trash noobs" Every game has self-centered players who don't understand the concept of objectives. Welcome to online gaming.
: Explain me This
Where are you getting the idea that wintrading _isn't_ a bannable offense? It most definitely is. Also yeah, "calling someone out" (which tends to mean flaming someone or picking on them for no real reason) for what you suspect is wintrading _is_ toxic. Probably not enough to warrant a punishment on it's own and it would have to be in conjunction with other forms of negativity, but it's toxicity all the same.

Vision score is calculated by your wards placed _and_ wards cleared so using sweepers, control wards, duskblade, and vision plants are great ways to increase it.

Agreed, it is too rewarding. But the reset is too strong, as the rest of his kit IS too strong as it is. As it stands, Assassins in general are not high risk at all. The only risks come down to the greed of the person at the keyboard. Sure, Pyke may not be able to build HP, but that doesn't mean he can't get tanky with proper itemization. If Pyke players didn't follow Assassin Mentality, QWE alone would be enough to win most matchups. > > _Actually,_ I'm downvoting for three reasons. > > **_*~~1~~*_** - Because whenever people bring up popular or strong champions that they dislike (be it Pyke, Zoe, Yasuo, etc.) they _always_ exaggerate and are incapable of discussing balance without making sarcastic or overblown comments about the champion and it's players. > > - "Wow Pyke just 1v5ed the enemy team because they had less than 50% health. Woohoo. League of Snowball everyone. Now his team has twice the gold his opponents do, so fun and well designed, yay." > > - "I'm downvoting because I'm a Pyke main abusing Pyke's inherently strong kit in the 1% of games I get where he isn't banned." > That's exactly what he does though. And the fact that champions are known as "strong" points to a balance problem in itself. If a champion can always be classified as Strong or Weak, that means that there is an imbalance. Additionally, if a champion is popular, the win rate should be lower, due to the increase of less skilled players improperly utilizing said champion. A champion with a low play rate and high win rate may not be overtuned, but a champion with a high play rate and a 50% win rate is -probably- overtuned. > **_*~~2~~*_** - Because you keep bringing up counterplay but this change would make Pyke nigh-unplayable. > > How do you counter Pyke's current ult? Stay at med-high HP, keep a healing ability on hand, save your dashes and blinks for when he's chaining his ult, buy a Zhonya's, increase your MS above a certain point to juke it with ease. > > How would you counter your version of Pyke's ult? QSS, Zhonya's, Cleanse, heals. > > Congratulations, you've technically made counterplay more accessible but also made it _more_ unhealthy. Someone can spend 1,300 gold to completely invalidate Pyke for the rest of the game and if he does somehow land an ultimate in a teamfight, he can't do much afterwards because it doesn't reset. _**Pyke is not that strong of a champion when he does not have access to his ultimate.**_ I spent 1300 gold yesterday to completely invalidate a 27/0/8 Malzahar, came back and won the game. I agree that QSS and Zhonyas are bad items, but unfortunately, unless we see their actives moved to Summoner Spells on 180s cooldowns, it will never get fixed, and some champion will always be gated by someone picking up these items in the store. Additionally, Pyke has an AOE Dash Stun, invisibility, a hook, and a short range stab. I agree, this change could POTENTIALLY drop his power and bring him up to the buffing table, but overall, it would create more opportunities for balance with the champion. His QWE are strong abilities, and may need more or less power once this change goes through, but the resetting R is what will keep the rest of his kit gated and will keep him banned. > > **_*~~3~~*_** - Because as much as you say this change wouldn't gut Pyke, it would. You cannot take an aggressive support (who **cannot heal, shield, or consistently peel in any capacity**) and remove his most effective source of kill power _and_ it's reset mechanic without buffing other areas of his kit. > > **One** execute without a reset after a _10_ second delay that's counterable by Cleanse, Zhonya's, and QSS in addition to any healing ability in the game? How is that not a hard nerf? That would completely destroy the champion. A Blitzcrank and Leona can't heal or shield, but have around the same amount of CC (or less, in Blitz's case.), and what Pyke lacks in those departments he makes up in safety. If Leona E's or Blitz Q's an enemy away from their ADC on 25% HP, it's a one way trip, they are sacrificing themself for their adc. If Pyke Q's an enemy away from their ADC while on 25% HP, he can Dash+Invis Speed boost away and possibly save himself. As I said, pushing Pyke away from the Assassin mentality and more towards the "Protect my partner" mentality will create a healthier relationship between himself and his bot laner. It will also open up opportunities for number tuning on the rest of his kit.
> But the reset is too strong, as the rest of his kit IS too strong as it is. His base kit is not that good. His ultimate is the only thing that makes him viable in the first place. If you want to begin talking about removing his resets or fundamentally changing his ultimate, you need to first address the lack of power in his base kit that would arise as a result of losing 90% of his power. >Sure, Pyke may not be able to build HP, but that doesn't mean he can't get tanky with proper itemization. ...what? Pyke is literally hard locked to building Duskblade, Youmuu's, some form of boots, and a support item. So for starters, he only has 2 spots to buy defensive items as skipping out on the aforementioned ones will kneecap his power and utility immensely. That being said, _if_ he's going to build any defensive items, they're going to be _damage_ and defense oriented ones like Maw or Guardian Angel. Pyke will **never** get tankier than those items and Aftershock. > That's exactly what he does though. And the fact that champions are known as "strong" points to a balance problem in itself. If a champion can always be classified as Strong or Weak, that means that there is an imbalance. Additionally, if a champion is popular, the win rate should be lower, due to the increase of less skilled players improperly utilizing said champion. A champion with a low play rate and high win rate may not be overtuned, but a champion with a high play rate and a 50% win rate is -probably- overtuned. Please show me a clip of Pyke 1v5ing a competent team of players. Hell, show me a clip where Pyke does it to a team of gold or below players. _Pyke can not ever 1v5, he will not easily land 3-5 man ultimates, and he cannot instantly execute someone who just dipped below 50% HP._ Stop exaggerating. Also, obligatory mention, there is a colossal difference between something being _strong_ and something being _overtuned._ Pyke will probably always be strong so long as fast-paced games and kill-oriented teams are meta just like how Braum or Alistar will always be strong in slower paced metas or ones where ADCs are strong. That does not mean he is problematic. I do agree that he should be nerfed, but not in the way that you're suggesting, which again, **is** a heavy nerf. > I spent 1300 gold yesterday to completely invalidate a 27/0/8 Malzahar, came back and won the game. I agree that QSS and Zhonyas are bad items, but unfortunately, unless we see their actives moved to Summoner Spells on 180s cooldowns, it will never get fixed, and some champion will always be gated by someone picking up these items in the store. So why feed into that state of unhealthy counterplay by allowing your version of Pyke's ult to be completely invalidated with said methods? All you're doing is intentionally gutting the champion because you can't suggest any alternative methods. > Additionally, Pyke has an AOE Dash Stun, invisibility, a hook, and a short range stab. I agree, this change could POTENTIALLY drop his power and bring him up to the buffing table, but overall, it would create more opportunities for balance with the champion. His QWE are strong abilities, and may need more or less power once this change goes through, but the resetting R is what will keep the rest of his kit gated and will keep him banned. Please explain to me why you think Pyke's base kit is naturally stronger than Blitzcrank's, Thresh's, or Nautilus'. Someone who can't build tank, has delayed abilities, and can't heal or shield allies would be **useless** if he couldn't secure any kills. > A Blitzcrank and Leona can't heal or shield, but have around the same amount of CC (or less, in Blitz's case.), and what Pyke lacks in those departments he makes up in safety. If Leona E's or Blitz Q's an enemy away from their ADC on 25% HP, it's a one way trip, they are sacrificing themself for their adc. If Pyke Q's an enemy away from their ADC while on 25% HP, he can Dash+Invis Speed boost away and possibly save himself. Except: 1 - Blitzcrank and Leona can go tank. They have the ability to engage or disengage fights while tanking the brunt of the damage for their allies. Pyke does not have this luxury if the enemy knows how to focus. 2 - Blitzcrank and Leona's CC are _on-demand._ Blitzcrank's Q missile speed is much faster than Pykes and **has no wind-up**, his knockup is guaranteed when in melee range, and his ultimate silence is guaranteed when in range. Leona's Q is guaranteed when in melee range, her E is a semi-reliable skillshot (but still a skillshot all the same) and her ultimate is a devastating way to engage or disengage a fight. What does Pyke have? A Q that takes _THREE_ full seconds to reach the same range as Blitz/Thresh/Nautilus' Q, and a dash that requires him to put himself in the middle of a fight (which is again, also delayed.) 3 - Pyke's "safety" is only for himself. He can't consistently peel as well as other supports, meaning the second his ADC is pounced on, it's pretty much a done deal unless he can ult them first. > As I said, pushing Pyke away from the Assassin mentality and more towards the "Protect my partner" mentality will create a healthier relationship between himself and his bot laner. It will also open up opportunities for number tuning on the rest of his kit. Except that's not what Pyke's niche is. You're trying to make him into a champion that he isn't. He is a fast paced, aggressive support who seeks to snowball his team through kill power. He sacrifices utility and peel **for** that kill power, if you "push him away from the Assassin mentality" you're functionally removing Pyke.

However, getting permanently banned because you used a zero tolerance phrase and then getting permanently banned for something that ordinarily wouldn't have even triggered a chat restriction is unreasonable. I could _maybe_ get behind the idea of there being an additional punishment tier after using ZT language (ex. 14 day suspension > 50 game chat restriction or something > permanent suspension) but having separate ladders isn't a good idea for the reasons listed above. In my experience people use ZT language deliberately and the majority of cases are not accidental, having a separate ladder just affords them the chance to have a free pass without serious consequence.

>The resetting, instant, AOE execute is far, far too strong of an ability, and does not fall in line with the role of "Support". _There are no set guidelines when playing Support._ His ultimate is fine when balanced properly (which currently it isn't IMO as it's too rewarding) and one of his most defining features.

Clear double standard.)** - "I'm downvoting because I'm a Pyke main abusing Pyke's inherently strong kit in the 1% of games I get where he isn't banned." **_*~~2~~*_** - Because you keep bringing up counterplay but this change would make Pyke nigh-unplayable. How do you counter Pyke's current ult? Stay at med-high HP, keep a healing ability on hand, save your dashes and blinks for when he's chaining his ult, buy a Zhonya's, increase your MS above a certain point to juke it with ease. How would you counter your version of Pyke's ult? QSS, Zhonya's, Cleanse, heals. Congratulations, you've technically made counterplay more accessible but also made it _more_ unhealthy. Someone can spend 1,300 gold to completely invalidate Pyke for the rest of the game and if he does somehow land an ultimate in a teamfight, he can't do much afterwards because it doesn't reset. _**Pyke is not that strong of a champion when he does not have access to his ultimate.**_ **_*~~3~~*_** - Because as much as you say this change wouldn't gut Pyke, it would. You cannot take an aggressive support (who **cannot heal, shield, or consistently peel in any capacity**) and remove his most effective source of kill power _and_ it's reset mechanic without buffing other areas of his kit. **One** execute without a reset after a _10_ second delay that's counterable by Cleanse, Zhonya's, and QSS in addition to any healing ability in the game? How is that not a hard nerf? That would completely destroy the champion.

: Why is Zero Tolerance so Intolerant?
>However, the way these two penalties are combined does not make sense. Using a zero tolerance word or phrase also bumps the penalty tier all the way to the 3rd step, skipping the first two, which means that a single use of a zero tolerance word or phrase followed by even a slight bout of toxicity results in a permanent ban. While, toxicity should always be avoided, this does not afford the player the opportunity to reform. He or she may understand that zero tolerance words and phrases are just that, but has not been warned that other parts of his or her chatter are also unacceptable. It does give the person the ability to reform, though. Players are warned on their reform cards that "Any continued negativity will result in a permanent suspension" and it's obvious they're on thin ice after receiving such a huge punishment. It's a serious consequence for serious language, I think the system is fine on this front. >I propose a modification to the penalty system, wherein use of a zero tolerance word or phrase results in a 14 day ban but only ticks the penalty tier up one, such that the next penalty on a previously clean account is the 25 day chat restriction, followed by a 14 day ban, and then the permanent ban. However, a subsequent use of a zero tolerance word or phrase should still result in a permanent ban, regardless of the penalty tier. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of this idea as it essentially permits the use of a zero-tolerance word once every few months. Yeah, a 14-day ban is a serious punishment but if the only way to receive a permanent ban is by using that language **twice**, I could just use it once and never worry about getting permabanned. There would be nothing to stop me from saying a disgustingly heinous, racist, and homophobic sentence and then waiting a few months to do it again. Maybe if that zero-tolerance punishment ladder didn't decay (so you would get a permanent ban regardless of how long it was since your 14-day suspension) but even then I still don't like the idea that much. Racist and homophobic language needs to be shut down instantly and have serious consequences to make it clear that the behavior is unacceptable.

Couldn't possibly be a data breach at Riot! > "and check your match history every now and then." Don't stop there, always keep an eye on how many Riot Points are on your account. If they go down, go to "Store" -> "Account" -> "Gift History" to find out who benefited from your account compromise. Riot won't restore the RP so you are completely screwed in that regard but at least you get to see where it went! It might be a good idea to just do a full 10 minute review of your entire LoL account every day. Riot could do several things to improve security but won't because they don't care and take their lack of caring "very seriously." > "something that looks suspicious, be proactive and file a support ticket to explain the situation in detail." You can then get a "helpful" response from "support" like: "There isn't much I can do for your case as a Player Support, I'm really sorry" The level of "seriousness" taken in the lack of escalation to Riot's apparent non-existent security team is breath taking! Every detail clearly of so much great importance to Riot support to ignore! Could you still get banned for account sharing after pointing out to support your account was compromised? Support won't spoil that surprise by telling you! It seems the answer maybe YES! Or maybe no? Who is to say? Such fun! :) > "jot down some information about your account (such as your account creation date, skins owned, or other confidential information that only you would know)" Yes, we should ignore that websites like Mobalytics might help determine publicly the date of the first match and help make a determination when the account creation date might be. Also someone that has compromised an account to the extent they can play matches on it couldn't possibly know what skins are owned by the account. Out of curiosity, what does clicking on "Collection" -> "Skins" show again? > "Stay safe out there." Yeah. Right. It should also be stated that if you want to get the full details on what IP address someone logged into the account from, what they said in chat and other details, you can do so by submitting a ticket. An automated reply will be provided by Blitzcrank bot (I'm not make a joke, this is how "seriously" Riot takes this) and you will be told to *NOT* change your password for 30 days or your request for the information will be void. Again, I am not making a joke no matter how much it may sound like I am. If you are trying to get details about an account compromise, Riot's taking things "very seriously" solution is to *discourage* changing your password for 30 days even if it seems like your account might have gotten compromised again during those 30 days! Things you should *NOT* expect Riot to do: (1) Riot will not require a 2FA verification code if you use the League of Legends game client. 2FA verification may help prevent someone be able to play matches from an untrusted device but the game client is *always* trusted from *all* devices. Riot believes 2FA is only a web browser security method. (2) Riot will not provide a method to review recent login IP addresses immediately without waiting 30 days. That would just be too damn helpful and Riot want you to talk to "Blitzcrank Bot" instead. (3) Riot will not require 2FA verification on the website *BEFORE* confirming the password is correct. An attacker can use the web site to brute force the password and then ignore the 2FA step. Since the League of Legends game client doesn't require 2FA, they are golden. (4) Riot will not use a cell phone app based authenticator system similar to Google Authenticator. If you wanted the security provided by something like Blizzard Authenticator then you would be playing Heroes of the Storm instead. Or if you wanted security provided by something like Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator you would be playing Dota 2 instead. If you are playing LoL then you want the frustration of not having that. There is a League Friend mobile app but you should never expect a smart phone security app from Riot. But remember, keep anti-virus up to date because that way Riot doesn't have to acknowledge there should be anything they should change on their side! Also run Windows Update since that also will change nothing about Riot's attitude towards 2FA or easy access to last login information! Happy mass account compromise month!

>Must be players having out of date anti-virus and poor passwords! Couldn't possibly be a data breach at Riot! You realize multiple things can contribute to leaked data, right? Keyloggers, viruses, and other malware exists to seize your login information. Poor passwords can be brute forced. I also doubt Riot Games had any sort of data breach since [**I'm pretty sure companies are legally required to inform affected users of such an event.**](https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/data-breach-response-guide-business) Of course, I'm not a business expert and I could be wrong on this front, but I seriously doubt there was a data breach and _nobody_ is talking about it. >It might be a good idea to just do a full 10 minute review of your entire LoL account every day. Riot could do several things to improve security but won't because they don't care and take their lack of caring "very seriously." If you want to talk about account security and what Riot can do better, that's fine. I'm just trying to spread some awareness and keep people from getting their accounts jacked. If you don't have anything constructive to offer and are just going to respond to everything with exaggerated scenarios (such as daily 10 minute account scans which are completely unnecessary), I'm not interested in responding further. >Yes, we should ignore that websites like Mobalytics might help determine publicly the date of the first match and help make a determination when the account creation date might be. That's why Riot support asks _multiple_ questions when responding to account recovery tickets. They don't just ask for information like account creation date which people _might_ be able to figure out if they put in enough effort. >Also someone that has compromised an account to the extent they can play matches on it couldn't possibly know what skins are owned by the account. Out of curiosity, what does clicking on "Collection" -> "Skins" show again? Except that information is only available to the person who is already in the account? And who's going to be filing the recovery ticket? That's right, the person who's locked **out** of the account. If your account was compromised, _you're_ the one who's going to be filing the recovery ticket, not the hacker. When that recovery ticket is filed, there are multiple steps to the process such as e-mail verification or by sharing confidential information only the account owner could know. Again, more sarcastic comments, not interested in continuing this conversation because you're incapable of being civil. >But remember, keep anti-virus up to date because that way Riot doesn't have to acknowledge there should be anything they should change on their side!

Oh, please. Spare me the theatrics and stop acting like Riot is the only person who could be at fault in this scenario. Yes, there are a lot of things they could do better regarding account security, _however_, acting like you shouldn't be doing **your** part is just foolish. Keyloggers and other malware _can_ result in your information being leaked. Having a poor password _can_ result in it being guessed or brute forced. Not updating your recovery information _can_ result in losing your account entirely due to a hacker or manual account lock. Doesn't matter how good or bad Riot's security system is, those are **universal** mistakes people make across every game and they should be aware of it. I'm just trying to help some people out. If you aren't going to be helpful, move on.
: (Screenshot inside) Went from zero bans/restricted chat to 14 days ban for a single normal game
The only way to receive a 14-day suspension on a first chat offense is by using hate speech (racism, homophobia, "kys", etc.) Not sure if Imgur is glitching or what, but that photo is super blurry for me and doesn't show the entire chat log. If you could just copy and paste the chat logs into your post or into a separate comment, it'll be much easier to discuss the suspension. An easy way to verify if the suspension was due to hate speech is by scanning for words that are censored with % symbols. So if you see something like "Shut up %%%", that is classified as hate speech by the system.
: It used to be Your Cut for every ally involved. Then it was Your Cut for one ally. Now it's Your Cut for one ally **plus pyke himself**. So now he can suicide under tower and as long as he gets the ult it's worth. "A kill for a kill and I come out on top" is not a mechanic a support champion should have.
> It used to be Your Cut for every ally involved. No, it was never like that lol Maybe on the PBE before he was added or in the concept phase, but in the live game he's _never_ been able to give more than 2 Cuts per ult.
: Can we have a way to hide amount of mastery points
It does not matter if Riot hides your mastery points or leaves them visible to other players. No matter what they do, there's nothing to stop me from going to [**www.ChampionMasteryLookup.com**](https://championmasterylookup.derpthemeus.com/) (actual site) and typing in your name. People will flame you for _any_ information they get their hands on. If they hid your mastery points, people would just go back to flaming you for your champion choice, skin choice, KDA, ward score, CS, objective control, items built... _literally anything._ Hell, in Season 5 we got flamed for just having the mastery banner-flag-thing hanging above our portraits in the loading screen. "Lol trash Graves mastery 5 still dies to Kha'Zix" or something along those lines.

That's literally not possible, when Pyke ults he can give out a maximum of 2 Your Cuts. One for himself, one for his most recent assisting ally. If you and your brother **both **got them that means: - One of you didn't use the Your Cut you received from a previous kill, you held onto it in your inventory and forgot about it - Pyke landed multiple ults. You got your piece of Your Cut from one kill, your brother got his from the other kill. **_*~~From League's official website:~~*_** >Pyke blinks to and executes low health enemies, allowing him to cast this spell again and granting additional gold to _**an**_ ally who assists. **_*~~From the League Wiki:~~*_** >Each execution grants one 'Your Cut' to _**both Pyke and the last assisting ally,**_ instead of its natural assist gold. In addition, each enemy champion killed inside the X by an ally grants Pyke two stacks of 'Your Cut'.

: An idea to nerf pyke
...what? It might help if you learned what Pyke's abilities did before discussing nerfs. **He does not** give a piece of Your Cut to everyone who assists on the kill, _**only**_ the most recent assisting ally.
: Because you get to decide what's exempt and whats not from what ive heard rules on the boards are to be followed 100% of the time no exceptions no exemptions. Past moderation isnt a get out of jail free card to give you the go ahead to exempt what you want. I wont be responding again just wanted to make that point clear to you since you felt like you could blur the line when its in your favor.
Where are you getting the idea that I'm making the rules? I don't decide what's exempt and what's not, that reasoning has been explained multiple times by Moderators and Heralds. If you're going to accuse me of warping the rules to fit my own agenda, you should probably do some more research because you're horribly misinformed. A more troubling question: Why am I still responding?
: Please refrain from using names since it goes agains the name and shame rule. You specified that yourself.
Rather than trying to ask me to follow the rules, I suggest you learn more about them and how notable personalities such as content creators (AKA Nubrac+NB3) are **exempt **from that rule as they're actively broadcasting and sharing their actions on YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and even the Boards. You also could have just googled "**League of Legends Boards "Nubrac"**" and seen the mountain of posts that weren't removed for the aforementioned reason. Again, last time I'm responding to this post. Just felt the need to correct you on that front.
: I wasn't saying you did, but some coward did, and they should try using their words like a big kid.
Right. Anyways, doesn't seem like there's anything to discuss further. The Name & Shame place is in rule for a reason, and that reason is not for protection. Agree with it or not, it's your decision, but that doesn't make you exempt from the rule. Have a nice day.
: So was this post name calling or shaming anyone? I didnt see it, which means you brought the negativity from a prior post that he may be alluding to, but this stand alone post has none of the rule breaking your making it out to have. Just an opinion of a player of the system. And if this post is a direct extension of the previous one can you show me where the link on this post is to the previous one because the one link i can find is your post that specifically calls on his last post.
Think what you want. I continued our conversation from a previous post onto this one that OP made which is _alluding directly to that conversation and to me._ Not responding to you again.
: Yea but you're bringing the negativity from that post onto this one. When this post is a separate thread from the last one.
Definitely not being negative in any way. Just because I'm being blunt and explaining the factual reason as to why things are the way they does not mean I'm being negative. Also, _again,_ this post is a direct extension of the previous one, which you have not read or interacted with in any way.
: Oh so if there's a queue with hundreds if not thousands if not _tens of thousands_ of cases, and all of the ones that are there should come first, why is it that when someone in the LPP "contacts their Riot friend" they get to jump the queue? Doesn't seem right to me, they should have to wait in line like everyone else.
Not sure why you're bringing up the Nubrac situation all of a sudden, but... alright. That's not a widespread issue, large content creators had direct access to Riot contacts and in NB3's case he used that contact channel to tell them what Nubrac was doing. If you actually followed the situation instead of paying attention to that one part, you'd know: - That Nubrac was incredibly disliked amongst the high ELO community for his failure to communicate and perform consistently well with his strategy. - As a result of the above point, he was reported by _multiple_ individuals, not just NB3. You can even have a direct quote from Riot on the matter right [**here. **](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/c0m449/nightblue3_gets_his_teammate_banned_for_playing/er61hxj/?context=3) - Riot was contemplating banning Nubrac for a while, ultimately NB3's report was just the straw that broke the camel's back. Anyways, if you want more information on that situation you can look at any of the thousands of posts/videos made on the topic since I'm done with it. As I said before it is not a widespread issue, if it's even still an issue at all. Edit: And before you jump the gun again like you did with your last comment, I'm not downvoting you. Note how I have multiple upvotes on some of my comments, that means _multiple people_ with their own individual opinions are reading this conversation as well.
: >There is a queue for these things, after all. How long does it take to watch 10 seconds of a video, type the players name into the system and click the "ban" button, really? There is nothing ambiguous about this situation, the player deserves an instant permaban. Boom, case closed. One less in the queue.
Because one, as much as you would like to believe it's that simple, there's more to each case. Sure, _maybe_ this particular one could be solved that easily but on average it's not as simple as seeing 5-10 seconds of in-game footage and then putting someone one step away from a permanent ban. And two, regardless of how long you think it would take to deal with the case, that doesn't change the fact that there is a queue with hundreds if not thousands if not _tens of thousands_ of cases ahead of it.
: Okay but he didnt do it on this post did he? Or am i assuming something incorrectly?
Not in the original post but like I said, this particular one that we're commenting on right now is due in large part to the Name & Shame rule as a whole and my responses on that original post.
: I responded, asking them to just confirm that some action was taken against the player, don't care what, haven't heard back yet.

That's pretty much standard operating procedure when it comes to contacting support about specific players. They don't want you to harp on the situation or go out of your way to exacerbate it. I also kind of doubt that they got back to you in _less_ than three minutes, but even if they did, you still brought it to their attention and they'll deal with it eventually. There _is_ a queue for these things, after all.
: Are you okay? Why are you going after the guy when he didnt start a witch hunt or bring up anyone's name?
OP just posted a 3 minute long video exposing someone who was griefing in their game. The post was removed and (at least the majority of this post) is in response to me citing our "No Name & Shame" rule, which they disagree with.
: An anecdote.
If you choose to view it as protection, that's your opinion and you're entitled to it. However, the Name & Shame rule is in place for two reasons and neither of them are for the purposes of protecting someone. The users on the Boards are just like you and I, regular people. No Rioters peruse the Boards looking for people to ban, _nobody here has the ability to alter or administer punishments in any way, **so posting here with the intent to report or call someone out is functionally useless.**_ Many of us also consider it spam for that reason. In addition to that, starting a witch hunt and labeling people as griefers or problematic users (accurate or not) is not helpful as other players will view that as a chance to enact revenge rather than turn the other cheek. The best way to "call people out" and get them punished is through the in-client report option or [**by filing a support ticket where you can attach the evidence,**](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) **not by posting here. **

>One game a malphite on my team, said n word with hard r like 10 times, no feedback report. Another game, ezreal tells me to hang myself, no feedback report Make sure you're reporting them with the proper category (Hate Speech.) Even then, the IFS message _is not_ guaranteed. You will never consistently get it, you could report 9 people in one game and even if they all get permanent bans, you still might not get it. >but then I get a 14 day suspension for telling someone to "lick my hairy nutsack" No you didn't, and if you did, that means you've been punished multiple times in the past and ignored the multiple warnings you were given. If you've never been punished before, it was an error.
: Question about Support Mastery
In a 34 minute game, 19 ward score really isn't that high. Not saying it's not good (because you did do **really **well that game) I'm just saying that it's not enough. Adding some CS in also helps a lot, even though supports never CS while their ADC is in lane you should ideally be last hitting when they're not there. If your ADC backs or dies and you have to hold tower, drop a few Qs and autos to freeze the wave, don't let those minions go to waste. That's something all supports should be doing whether you're going for an S or just playing regularly. >With that said, what am I missing? Has Riot ever come out and given us the rubric by which they grade us? Champion mastery ranks are scored by your performance in comparison to other players on that champion in that role. AFAIK there is no set rubric or guideline to follow for S ranks. So if you're playing Soraka support, you're being compared to other Soraka supports. Naturally, Soraka players don't get many kills but you should have high kill participation (which you do have, but more always helps), a _lot_ of vision score (AKA more than 19, be as liberal as possible with your wards/sweeper), and a bit of CS. Not a lot, mind you, but in a 34 minute game you should have last hit about 25-40+_ish_ minions. Overall, I do think you were really close. If it helps, play with a premade/duo and ask them if you can last hit some kills. Excelling in areas where other Soraka's _don't_ (AKA kills and CS) is a great way to net an easy S. Edit: Something I also didn't mention: I don't think kill participation _as a percentage_ is what matters, it's the actual number of kills/deaths/assists you have. Your team only made 18 kills in total which again isn't a lot for a 34-35 minute game. I could be wrong on this front but it's most likely based on the actual numbers and not percentages.

It's sad that you're actually trying to use that as evidence for him being broken. Three things. **_*~~1~~*_** - 0.7% playrate. So _even_ if that winrate was accurate (which it's not, I'll explain in point 2/3) it's ultimately irrelevant as it's such a laughably low rate. By that logic, [**Kled is broken because he's got a 59.76% winrate in the Support role, right?**](https://champion.gg/statistics/#?sortBy=general.winPercent&order=descend) If that's the way we're doing things now? **_*~~2~~*_** - Look at your sample size before citing things as evidence. "4,943 matches (Last 2 days)" is way too low to make any assumptions, and again I refer you to that Kled comment. _**Low playrate + high winrate is not enough information to go off of in terms of buffing or nerfing.**_ **_*~~3~~*_** - As someone who actually plays Pyke and interacts with Pyke mains frequently, Pyke mid is more reliant on his laner misplaying than anything else. Any competent laner knows how to shut him down, zone him out of CS, and stop him from roaming. Pyke mid, Pyke top, and Pyke jungle are not consistently good anymore.
: For all the little stuff mods remove. They seem to give Nubrac a pass
General Discussion is a dump board, anything and everything goes there. >Yet for some reason, they always stay and are never removed and he is never punished for this offense. Yet the mods seem perfectly content with removing small posts or jabs at other players. Because one offense is actually an offense while the other is not? Plenty of people post in both GD and Streams & Videos and the mods have never punished them, it would actually be a legit double standard if they _did_ start removing his posts since everyone else is allowed to do it. Also not sure why you're bringing up "small posts or jabs at other players" since that's not what Nubrac is doing. > Are you guys afraid to remove any of his posts like what's the big deal? Pretty sure he's had posts removed in the past, just like other players.
: How do you distinguish someone having a good game and someone smurfing?
Through consistency. Sometimes, even when someone is doing amazingly on all fronts (CS, ward score, K/D/A, objective control, etc.) it's only for that one game. It happens. If someone does it consistently and frequently topscores/is MVP in _every_ game, they're most likely smurfing.

: Evolution in the permaban idea
>I was wondering what you guys thought about permaban in League of Legends. Do you think Rio should give players another chance? Personally, I'm not a big fan of the idea and I say this as someone who's had an account that was permabanned. We're already given 3-4+ chances and there has to be some severe consequences when breaking the rules, they can't just keep giving temporary chat restrictions and gameplay suspensions. > I know plenty of other players that are in the same situation. It's just frustrating that we have to build an entirely new account from scratch for offenses that happened a long time ago. That's the whole point of the system. It's supposed to be frustrating when your account is permanently banned, it's a punishment. They want to deter you from breaking the rules. That being said, in the past when players were unbanned it didn't go so well. Riot did two unban experiments, resulting in a high failure rate (80-90%+) and undisclosed results, respectively.
