and if you call out the toxic player base u get down votes too, riot created a new way of life "League of Victims". everyone is entitled to report you for absolutely nothing, god help you if ur on a team with a 4 man queue, they will all report u for nothing. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

: > **"if you want to take your rejection as a personal insult, so be it. You do you."** : this is toxic. right here. even if you do not understand it, you are part of the communities toxicity. you take words and twist them around to make them sound like what you want, and attack people for their opinions. Pardon, but when you make up your own meaning for things ("we banned too many players..."), make illogical statements to seem as though your being left out was arbitrary ("...while thousands of players who also got banned will rejoin the ranks."), and make passive-aggressive remarks to show your distaste ("On the plus side ill never spend another penny on this game, so thats cool."), it's very difficult to imagine you're taking this as anything but a slight. If you didn't want your messages to be construed as negative, don't use wording that errs so heavily on the negative side. > and yes, im sure easily thousands (4-5 digits) are participating, they need better player stats because their game has dropped greatly in player numbers. And statements like these don't help your case either. If they really needed more players, why would they reach out to the scant few that they banned? More than that, why would they run a test, which in no way is expected to change permaban policies, that sees the possibility of every player in the test getting banned as being wholly on the table, in order to get that number? If Riot was really desperate to get more players in, I really doubt they'd shoot for a small sample of a small percentage of their playerbase with the hypothetical possibility of them all failing. That's illogical, and in the simplest terms, it'd be scraping at the bottom of the barrel.

: Not allowed to join the NA unban reform because "the experiment is full"
The community is so toxic players are down voting players for being disappointed they cannot rejoin the game on their old account. Sounds like disrespectful words aren't the only thing riot should be looking for to discipline players. **And to you "Umbral Regent" :** Im disappointed that i found out about it but was not able to participate, you can twist my words to make them sound like whatever you want, but its plain as day, im disappointed i will not be given a chance to use my old account that i had until a few months ago, and played on since season 2. **"if you want to take your rejection as a personal insult, so be it. You do you." **: this is toxic. right here. even if you do not understand it, you are part of the communities toxicity. you take words and twist them around to make them sound like what you want, and attack people for their opinions. That is literally what people are being banned for. hard to see the forest through the trees, eh? and yes, im sure easily thousands (4-5 digits) are participating, they need better player stats because their game has dropped greatly in player numbers. they perma ban you in this game if u flame back, and lots of people have been taught **not to be a victim**, so they defend their selves. but sometimes it goes too far, can be hard to tell the difference between self defense and bullying in the heat of the moment. Im not saying its right, 2 wrongs never make a right, but sometimes u cant allow yourself to be considered weak or people walk all over you, thats just life.

: Not allowed to join the NA unban reform because "the experiment is full"
The Bad News : Hello Everyone, Heads up that I am sending this to a number of you at one time due to the high volume of tickets we received based off a recent reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/9356yc/why_are_people_in_na_having_their_permabanned/e3bbx8j/ Before I begin, if you’re receiving this message it’s because we’ve identified your ticket as being related to this issue, if you feel you received this message in error or it does not pertain to your issue please respond to it letting us know and we’re happy to treat the issue separately. Since our post on reddit we’ve received a lot of enthusiasm to participate in this experiment and it was really encouraging to see. We feel like it’s a great sign that so many of you are interested and excited for a chance to return to League of Legends with a new outlook on the game. **Unfortunately we currently have enough players to perform this experiment and monitor the results for success or failure. I mentioned it in the thread; but we want to be able to explore this project while keeping the risk of a terrible experience low for everyone else who loves League of Legends and is able to play penalty free.** I know that this is likely disappointing for a number of you who are ready to try anew in League of Legends if only you could get the chance. If you’re one of the many who are playing on a different account since your ban and staying out of trouble, even climbing the ranks of Honor to show how much you’ve changed then I have a direct message for you; KEEP IT UP! These actions are not going unnoticed. I can not make any promises that this experiment will result in direct changes to permabans in League of Legends but we are committed to doing what makes the most sense for our players and this effort is an example of us checking our assumptions about what makes good moderation in League of Legends. My team will be happy to respond to any follow-up questions or concerns you may reply with; but I would like to leave you with a few points that are positions we will not deviate from: Our current roster for the experiment is full. We will not be able to add any additional accounts; NO exceptions will be made. We will be unable to provide updates on this experiment’s success (or lack of success) or any updates on when we might have another experiment like it or when we might make changes in the future. We do not have any plans to unban or allow players to return to League on perma-banned accounts outside of this experiment. The fact that we’re running this limited experiment should not give hope that we will end up changing our policies at a later date. We are 100% committed to looking at the data we collect from this process in order to do what’s best for League and our players. We are very aware that we might find our current policies are working as intended and permabanned accounts will stay banned forever. You should be prepared for this possibility. I want to thank you again for taking the time to reach out to us about this experiment. I’ve been working with banned LoL players for almost 8 years now here at Riot and one thing that always impresses me are the players able to hold themselves accountable for their actions and overcome the negative thoughts and behaviors that plague us in the heat of competitive gaming. Since the reddit post earlier this week we’ve found it encouraging to see such a powerful drive to be better; especially from a group of players that are all too often written off as lost causes. Even if our permabanned account rules do not end up changing; my hope is that this will not stop any of you from trying to be the best possible version of yourself in League of Legends or any other gaming community you may end up calling home.

yup, still honor 0 after 2 months, i get 1-3 honors a game on average. riot wont ban players who publicly say "enjoy the L i wont let this graves win" when hes on ur team, and proceed to int and run down top lane pushing the whole game, but u go off on someone in one such game for trolling/inting/being toxic and you are the bad guy and lose all ur honor. Joke ban system, joke match making system.

its a coin flip, the gold players are almost as toxic as plat. but at least the plat players (usually) have better mechanics/strats, and if ur that low in mmr you prolly dont want to int because u might drop back into gold.

i was making a joke about how high silvers play against low plats a lot of times. but i completely understand and agree with you, the system is rough, and it creates toxicity (the thing it pretends its doing something about by banning anyone who says something they dont like) and dismay for fellow teammates because you have different views on how to play. lots of champ selects someone on my team is already trying to troll or already GAVE UP just because they didnt get their champ, or their role, or the other team "looks better". Theres lots of ways to play and get around these things, its just harder in low elo, but it doesnt get any easier in plat. the skill levels actually increase and game knowledge with it (sometimes >.>) hoping to get diamond this season since ive been brick walled at around plat 4 the last 2 seasons, so i have lots to work on, including ignoring teammates who are toxic instead of talking back, knowing what my strats are and how to impliment them with my team, and if my team refuses to do such strat, on to plan b. good luck out there, the game is against you, you have to tame it and make it yours. {{sticker:sg-syndra}}

(just dodge everytime someone on ur team is already trying to lose even though its only champ select, u win more often that way.) {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: Reaching plat is impossible
Grind is rough this season. but its possible. halfway there this season. the hard one for us bad players is diamond. https://imgur.com/7whquKP last season i got to plat playing teemo support... so its very possible if u know a champ, its mechanics (if any) and know how to deny your enemies farm.

It tests your ability to play better than your silver team while beating the enemy plat team. (low elo match making)

: Lets compare the 2 items so you can see how what you say it make no sense +120 ability power +10% cooldown reduction Active UNIQUE: Deals 15% of target champion's maximum health in magic damage and applies the debuff, Doom. Doom amplifies all magic damage that champion takes by 20% for 4 seconds. 90 second cooldown (750 range). 120 ability power one of the stronger amount of AP you can get behind Rabadons death cap.. 10%CDR a much needed thing for mages Damage 15% OF THE TARGET MAXIMUM health as magic damage and can be used from 750 RANGE! And it was making any damage you deal to that target 20% stronger Meaning that you can deal 300 magic damage from 750 range on an ADC with 2000k hp (fruther increase with more hp they were having) and increase your damage to deal to them by 20% So overall you could deal over 1000 extra damage with that item from 750 range... Now lets see duskblade 55 AD medium amount of AD weaker than DFG 10%cdr same as DFG Range=125 (If we talk about assasins) FLAT damage 30-200 cant go more than that that it...that duskblade.. so you compare 200 damage vs 1000+++ from dfg..pls gtfo... And if we go even in more deep lets add tabi that cuts 24 damage just from the 12% passive block Yeah i guess they have the same power huh? That why i love math cause it prove how dumb thing some people say

it used to be 10 min shrooms T.T teto is just rough to play against, but not unstoppable. i get what ur saying, couldnt hurt to make it 2 aa maybe. but its his ult man, let him have it 3 aa for ranged players cause they have no risk of running into it while aa'ing, the real pain is somehow triggering the shroom when ur melee and aa'ing it... {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}

: Teemo shrooms should be easier to kill
2 hits for melee champs, and that is teemos ult... he needs the vision/dmg. also if im playing against teemo i carry 2-3 red wards just to clear shrooms or look for the rat himself. if u dont want to fight on shrooms, fight where u know he hasnt been, or dont chase him.

Pretty sure that Zed didn't get banned, toxicity, racism, and death threats, Pretty sure that is against the "summoner code" But they are probably too busy trying to ruin 2019 ranked play to manually ban him.
