: Adding an "Apologize" Feature
I notice many comments saying that the apology feature would be used insincerely or as a means to avoid being reported. There will be people who use it that way, and there is nothing to be done about that. At the same time, there are people who feel that what they did is genuinely wrong and want to apologize for and admit to their poor behavior. That would be the true intention behind this feature. People are free to report someone even if they apologize. They have every right to do so. However, this feature is not necessarily for the people who receive the apology; it is for the people who give it. It is to provide people a chance to make up for something wrong they've done through a very small gesture, regardless of whether the person on the receiving end accepts it or not.

: Adding an "Apologize" Feature
What is the best way to reach out to Riot staff? I would like to see if implementing this feature would be a feasible endeavor.
: Oh in that case it might not be necessary to have this feature. Players have the option to talk with each other in chat already while in the post-game lobby. I have seen on several occasions instances where players did exchange apologies in post-game chat over things that were said in-game. If this feature were to be implemented I would be more interested in seeing it as a right-click option from your recently played list. You could go to recently played and simply click the option to send them an apology and a popup would let the player know you had apologized. if it's just available in post-game lobby I don't see players using it very much since they already have a chat box to communicate through. No offense and not bashing your idea, just trying to give some plain feedback. I actually like your idea a lot but I think it would be more effective if done after the post-game lobby.
Your idea is worth implementing. I just thought that in the post game lobby a player could send a private message as opposed to writing in the general chat box, which all can see. The icon for the apology message would be similar to the icon for reporting players in that it is small and next to the player's name. And once you click on that icon and send the apology message, then you can no longer click on it, similar to how the icon for reporting players works.

I would like to add that this feature would be available only while in the matchmade lobby after the game, and can only be used once to send each individual player in that particular game, either on your team or the opposing team, an apology message. Once you exit the lobby, you can no longer send that player an apology message. These requirements would prevent players from abusing this feature to only further harass other players. The icon for sending the apology message could appear next to the same icons used to report players, add friends, etc. I believe a customizable message would allow for the player to have an opportunity to be more sincere, as apposed to using the auto-generated message that would be available.
