: Personal research about inting people

So since it's impossible to get it up again I just thought it was a good time to just throw away the account. The reason i got restricted was because I "insulted" a player trolling and feeding (0.13.1 when we ff'd at 16m). So since the destiny of my account was signed I decided I'd follow the player on op.gg and see if he got punished too... but no. Since then I did the same exact thing he did to my game to every other game I played in. I've played more or less 40 games just to see if tilted people did get reported as well as the people tilting them for int/troll/feed. I received 5 tickets telling me my reports of toxic players worked. I've got no penalty whatsoever for my "bad" games. I think there is a big issue behind my experiment. Riot cares more about bad players getting insulted than they do players legit inting. YOu can go 0-10 and waste everyone's time... you just can't call out the person that does it. We wouldn't want to hurt anyone's Feelings

They force you to grind 500 games with completely unbalanced teams. The worst player still has more impact than the best. So many games are determined before they start. It is an insufferable waste of time just to get close to where rank reflects skill. Any game where 1 random animal has the power to hold me hostage for 50 minutes in a loss they caused = a bad game. Literally TEAMMATE DICEROLL Legends

I'm not even talking about ranked either, i'm talking about normal games and ARAM games. > > "GG this bot", "JG diff", "my carries don't do any damage", *pinging a summoner spell cd/ult cd then typing "?"* , "trash x", "hit a x", etc. And it's not like the people who are on the receiving end of this are doing extremely poorly, normally they just made one minor mistake and get blasted for it for the rest of the game. It makes the game not very enjoyable- I queue up for normal and aram games to have a good time with 9 other people, but people like this just make the game less enjoyable. This all stems from Riot's failure to accurately measure individual skill in games (even non competitive ones). This leads to bad players and good players getting stuck on the same team and that isn't fun for anyone. Even ARAM isn't fun if you can't win just because one person has no idea what they are doing. When the teams are even, and you can respect your teammates, that is when League is fun.

Yummi assists are like participation trophies... afk spamming shield doesn't really matter. The grading system is usually more focused on farm either way, and if I remember correctly it accounts for your champion's average performance compared to all other players (so anyone can get 500 assists on the afk cat, so you likely wont get an S unless you get 600 assists with the afk cat).

If top lane is 0-8 with no turrets at 15 minutes, no respect. Just as I would not expect to be respected if I get dumpstered in lane and lose a game. The way the matchmaking works, the game is determined by the worst player rather than the best... to be clear I don't flame (only if the inter refuses to FF). I guess my point is, the entire "respect everyone gg hf" only works in a game that has a functional matchmaking system. There is no "GL HF" when it is just teammate dice-rolling and a shitty grind system.

That aside this tells me that you've already made up your mind and are unwilling to see otherwise. Would I be correct in that assumption? > In reality, the player that does poorly, ints, throws the game, or is overly sensitive and tries to ban another play - they are the problem. If they are that sensitive they can use /muteall, or go play minecraft. This goes back to the "sticks and stones" saying... players today are too soft, its pathetic. If you mess up and someone flames you, get over it and don't mess up next game. Counter-point: if a player is sensitive enough that they have to flame others or otherwise intentionally ruin the game as soon as someone makes any sort of mistake then they shouldn't be playing multiplayer games since clearly they can't handle the fact that other people are going to mess up from time to time just like they do. This is especially true for those who have the mindset of "can dish it out but can't take it". > I can't stand players that think a few mean words from an anonymous internet stranger are somehow making them the victim, while at the same time, said "victim" tries to get someone else banned because they are butthurt. While the internet does make it easier to speak our minds thanks in part to anonymity, it doesn't change the fact that we're interacting with real people, so that shouldn't be a justification for someone to get away with poor behavior consequence free. > The way I see it, "toxicity" if accurately defined, is a well-deserved angry response to incompetence. This is further exaggerated by League's inefficient, ineffective method of determining individual skill. I see it more as people not wanting to play with someone who is quick to harass others or throw games at the drop of a hat rather than being offended or sensitive. Also, players who become known for having behavioral issues (i.e. Dennis Rodman, Dardoch, etc.) often end up having that overshadow their skill, thus making it that much harder for them to find teams to play for compared to players who don't have those issues. Sure, people shouldn't take offense so easily to insults (though I doubt many actually do), but at the same time the person flinging the insults shouldn't be so eager to say them in the first place, nor should they get off scott free with excuses like "it's just words" or "stop being so sensitive", as they can only go so far before they no longer work. Being passionate and/or competitive is one thing, being a bully or a jerk is another. > I would rather have the "toxic" player that does his job, over the "nice" liability that can't stomach a few mean sentences. And I and many others would much rather see people show some basic levels of respect and decency and not be willing to intentionally ruin the experience for others whenever they don't get their way. If you ask me those people are the actual sensitive ones since they also often can't handle being held accountable for their actions.
Respect is earned. People that don't do their job don't deserve respect in League. If they lose a game they dont get respect imo

Which makes no sense. > > It is much easier for the sensitive fragile players to mute all, rather than try to police what the big boys say. (but bans and alt accounts give Riot a lot of $$$$ for people addicted to the game) There's a difference between trash talking and talking like trash, something allot of people don't seem to know the difference between. Even in pro sports it has its limitations, which can result in fines or even punishments if taken too far. Nothing in the OPs chat log constitutes trash talking-it's just them yelling and raging at others, and this would definitely not be considered trash talking in professional sports under any circumstances. The only thing that could possibly be considered trash talking is this: >Delightful Mango: nice hexderinker Delightful Mango: attackdmg and attackspeed boorts Delightful Mango: nice That said though, given their behavior in the rest of the log even that's a stretch. As for the sensitivity argument, From [Ulanopo’s Knowledge Base](http://(http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=4086541&page=1#post43465401)): >**People who report are simply being oversensitive. The mute button exists for a reason.”** >Let’s start with the Riot quote on this (link (http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=30696571#post30696571)): >**_Why is verbal abuse punishable if there is a mute button/language filter?_** _Players shouldn’t need to rely on features like the mute button or language filter to engage with other players in positive ways. When a player verbally abuses another player and forces him to use the mute button, they have already created a negative experience for that player._ >Simply put, Riot says no. You can scream and cry all you want, but it is their house and their rules. >With that out of the way, I think the topic deserves some further discussion. The theory is that, if people resolved to care less, then they would be happier. I often refer to this as ”Argument from Stoicism” and I think it is a fairly weak philosophy because it places the burden on the person being expected to endure the behavior rather than the person exhibiting the behavior. “You should be able to handle it” is just a flimsy excuse for being a bully or a jerk. I have to be the bigger man so that you can do whatever you want? That hardly seems fair. >There is also the issue of how I spend my limited free time. Like most people, I am constantly required to make value judgments between the different forms of entertainment that are available to me and, let's be honest, we live in an age of nearly limitless entertainment options. If I'm having a bad day in League, I can just fire up Steam and play a whole bunch of games that don't require me to put up with someone's BS. >This is not an issue of weakness or thin-skin; it's a question of choosing activities that don't leave me feeling frustrated and angry. Too many of those experiences and I'll just find something else to do. Riot knows this. Simply put, people need to stop using "it's just trash talk/banter and everyone else is just sensitive" as a catch-all excuse to try to justify poor behavior and just take responsibility for it instead. Also, accounts are free, and nothing relevant for any sort of competitive play requires real money spending of any kind. If one wants to spend real money on the game then that's their own choice not Riot's. That said, Riot doesn't want people to make new accounts (though they can't stop them from doing so) and would rather permabanned players (who have been written off as paying clients) find another game to play.

: Banter is also 100% impossible when strangers first meet. A prerequisite to banter is a friendly rapport. If they want a game that is structurally built like League, to be toxicity free, they should disable the chat system. Pings are more than enough to communicate for strategy ... the only time someone has time to type in a game is during a gray screen - and a gray screen is too random to be used as a place for strategy or tactics.

Not true. Banter is immediately established when you encounter a fellow transcendent being of swagger. I enter midlane spamming dancing and Penguin top hat emotes. My opponent follows suit. Insults and trash talk commence. Neither is offended. Neither report. Its called swagger. It is how the big d*cks swing. You can dish it and take it. If the opponent is a fragile sensitive beta, they will immediately say "blocked and reported" and then slip in a passive aggressive sentence in post game lobby. Most players fall into either category. One is fun to play against, the other is not.

: Just curious, was it deserved?
: I feel like it depends more on the type of champion that gets fed. If I'm a marksman going even or winning lane, I'm still gonna get dove and shit on by anyone that's ahead on the enemy team because the rest of my team may not be able to actually peel or even be strong enough to fight that person even if I am. So then If I position well and even get off good damage and stay alive, it's still not enough to do anything without a strong front line or peel because I can't save them from the damage they take. Watching Jax players jump out of everyone else on the team's auto attack range into a 1 v 5 then flame the team does leave me scratching my head sometimes. Or when people don't look at the map or see that some team mates are not nearby or in a position to help but they make the choice to go in anyway and then flame the team for not being there is also a head scratcher. Those things aside... Champion counters matter. Team comp matters. Win conditions matter. The problem is, in lower elo, where no one likes to play the stupid op busted champs cause they all wanna be Master Yi jungle heroes or Nasus-Im-Just-Gonna-Stay-Top-and-Farmbois or Teemo supports cause they got autofilled, or the oh great we have a Yasuo on our team with no hard cc or knockups to actually make him useful (Sure pros are playing him atm but that's only when they can also lock in Gragas Jungle). So then when my support dives in 1 v 3 cause he didnt have the river warded and Talon just jumped over a wall and one shot him, there's not much to do as a marksman. People wonder why they lose, it isn't as much of, oh this person is better skill or not, a lot of times it's because they lack the knowledge to actually know how to counter or lack actually caring about trying to counter, or just don't care about the champions on their team and just wanna play that one trick because some streamer somewhere told them to one trick and you'll be good. The game doesn't work like that anymore. Especially if you lack the knowledge to play your one trick into a losing matchup, then if you have multiple people one tricking into losing matchups, chances are eventually you will lose that game the longer it progresses because like I said counters matter. If you aren't winning games as a one trick by 25 minutes, you need a new trick. The problem with this game is people just make poor in game life choices and when they do that consistently and repetitively it can be bad. you just got killed by your laner and now they have a gold/item/level advantage? Don't try to do what you just did that got you killed again because it will not go differently this time. And being good doesn't mean you'll always win. Being smart is better. Knowing when to leave lane, when to stay, etc. Believe it or not when Tyler1 didn't drop a single game until he got to diamond during his run from bronze, he actually took his lead around the map, roamed and made plays. Most lower elo players just stay in their lane, then when another lane asks why they didn't come help or follow their laner they just reply "I pinged". The biggest problem with this game is the attitude a lot of people have. They think they are better than everyone and they are selfish. They want to believe they can carry but don't actually know how. Nor do they know enough about the other roles to understand what those roles need from them. Concerning matchmaking, the system will always try to balance the strength of the teams. So if you popped off a few games in a row, chances are you will start to get lower ranked teammates as your higher mmr will make up for theirs being lower when the system is trying to make a balance. Sometimes you are that weak link and you lose because you're matched against smarter/higher mmr players. Just... play smarter peeps.
Well said. My only issue is that when the auto-loss games happen, you are held hostage in the game and can't move on to the next. I'm not a fan of wasting time while playing video games (which in some ways is a waste of time already).
: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD FIX THE MATCHMAKING
And the best part is, if you quit to find a fair game you will get punished for it. Then sanctimoniously lectured to by the people too incompetent to make a fair system. "BUT GUYS, QUEUE TIMES! Sure you got autofilled on a role you dont want in an unfair game you dont want, but look how fast it was!"

Dark humor is still humor. I'll never understand players who actually get offended by joke insults made by internet strangers.
: If someone left before the game started, its a remake If someone left later and you don't think there is a chance to win, you ff at 15 It would be nice to make punishments for leaving more harsh, but there is no way to detect if it was intentional or caused by connection/server/client issues.

The system should be designed around those people. The clueless players that don't FF a loss game can have fun wasting their time alone while the others should be free

: Before you declare something a failure you have to first define what the parameters of success are. If the goal is to create a perfectly balanced champion, that doesn't need any nerfs or buffs, then yes, it was a failure. But I would suspect that was never the goal.

Well with unbalanceable mechanics like "true stealth" Riot made Akali pretty much either broken or useless.... Im thinking it was just to sell KDA skins

You're halfway there, mid priority is also when mid is strong and have priority over rotations, meaning they can go to the river first to help the jungler in a skirmish, it's not just pushing the lane, it's also having the upper hand in order to roam without losing cs.

It's not a hard concept And guess what makes mid strong with priority? A Gank. I guess that is too hard of a concept for you to grasp... but be sure to keep that unmerited condescending tone and have fun in Gold!
: i just wish the game would create two cameras. I get that bottom lane as it's called has 2 bushes a drakes and such, but the dynamics of the lane are not as important as the sightline of the camers. I would much rather have a reversed and inverted camera than to have the current isometic top down for both sides. though doing that without a game engine pre-set to handle such configuration would be mountainous amounts of micro adjustments.

Camping a lane as support is low IQ. Roaming is fine, but you dont need to stay Except that now you have priority in mid lane which means rotations to help the jungler at all times, adc can be extremely safe and get exp from under tower/gold since nearly all champions played bot can't kill anyone under tower before 1 item. Jungle can even help clear pressure bot lane, etc. Mid priority is in some cases more useful than hoping your adc is good enough to carry.

: Sona, Janna, Lulu have had more nerfs, so based on your logic, rework when? Unless of course you’re going retroactively to attach some arbitrary period of time so you can always be “right” Also you must be real fucking new if you think a) old Akali was healthy and b) old Akali wasn’t bitched about/constantly called a ball of stats.
