: Possible ban mistake, and issue with ban ticket
Infractions from old accounts do not factor into the equation, but the formula of toxicity/time that determines when to issue punishments and what punishments to issue really hits hard against low level accounts. There is also speculation that smurf accounts are held to a higher standard than actual new players. Given that, I can understand why they would give an escalated penalty for this chat log to an account of your level. But, I think that it would normally only have been escalated to a 25 game mute or a 14 day ban. Going all the way to permanent is a little out of the ordinary. So, I would make a support ticket to ask if the escalation was intended or a malfunction. https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
: does it take same time if i donf type never. or if i type gg or i like to play metal gear solid etc". I am in control.""Vengeance is only a step behind you."
None of that is punishable, unless you spam it or use a quote you use is unacceptable (like directly saying that you're going to kill someone). Remember, Solid Snake is a fictional character with dialogue that is suited for his role in that world and it's aimed towards other fictional characters. You are a human that is typing to other people. >Unfortunately, killing is one of those things that gets easier the more you do it. This is a good quote, use it when you're really fed. >It’s only when I’m cheating death on the battlefield. The only time I feel truly alive. Good after an escape. >Vengeance is only a step behind you. Good after you _didn't_ escape.
: a honor level
If you don't hit honor 2 in two months, you should reevaluate your chat. Taking longer than that indicates that you're being validly reported enough to be really close to your next punishment.
Banning them during the game would not really be a great choice. First, because that would mean the IFS was working without a report filed. That would hurt 5 man groups that are having fun together. Second, because playing 4v5 isn't fun. So, for the period from when they start flaming till the end of the game, every potential punishment functions exactly the same. Permaban, ID ban, finding their houses and burning their computers; that'd all be functionally the same during the game. Punishments will happen after the game. With that as a basis, we have to decide how to act during that time. I've decided to mute them in my games. There's no reason to listen to them. In effect, you hold the key to stopping their flame instantly. Press TAB to bring up the scoreboard, and there are 3 mute buttons by each portrait. Mute Chat, Mute Pings, and Mute Emotes. Click em. Insulting others is against the rules. Report them after the game.

: it don't work like that; it's 50/50 since you aren't including the fact that you might be the afk (disconnects, crashes). That does happen, and you will lose lp. So it has to be taken into consideration if you're trying to figure out how much afk's affect lp.

: why does everyone get punished for one afk?
AFKing is a problem. No doubt. The lost LP isn't a problem though. In every game where you don't go AFK there are 9 other players who all have an equal chance of going AFK. 5 of them are on the opposing team and only 4 are on your team. Over a large enough sample size, you will always gain more LP from games with AFK players than you lose (unless you cause people to AFK >25% more than average).
: Why is riot like this
When you 'abuse' a troll, you're not hurting them in the least. You're encouraging them. They want a reaction. That is their only goal. ------------------------------ Don't feed the trolls.
: For example there's a Teemo top vs a Poppy. Teemo has the advantage. Poppy has a Heimdinger mid lane, who will have a much easier time sitting behind his turrets and zoning out Teemo. But People would rather Poppy get clapped in lane then flame/report Poppy for losing to an extremely hard counter. But screw it. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
Your team had a Diana mid. Diana, also being melee, can have a rough time against a Teemo. The opponent mid was a Heimerdinger. Heimer is also difficult to lane against as melee.

: > His kit requires him to be in the middle of the fight, He really doesnt, he can precharge his Q gust on minions/monsters and throw it from range safety for instant engage. To the point he can easily zone out ranged midlaners while laning because he has either a long range or midrange point and click knockup that crits. > and the only defensive items in his usual build is GA and sometimes Bloodthirster. His kit is full of survivability. His itemization is full of strong items with side survivability. He has ways to instantly engage at range, and his kit is pretty much Zed 2.0 when it comes to laning safety and reliability on midlane. > He has a hard time running away from enemies without flash due to the fact that his E requires an enemy minion, jungle monster or enemy champ to use. Unless he is outnumbered he doesnt need to run out, not in midlane where he dominates most match-ups, even against those he is supposedly weak against (like vs Malz). > Due to him being a melee champ, most ranged champs (and some melee champs) have an easy time fighting and poking him during lane. False, Yasuo was designed to go toe to toe with **ADCs and supports**, midlane mages cant do much when their very own minions pose a threat to their safety, all the while Yasuo either free farms and perma-charges his Q for easy zoning (specially since his Q can be a point and click AoE knock-up that crits). Also Yasuo doesnt even have real counterpicks anymore, bulky anti-dive midlaners like Malz have been purposefully nerfworked. Any disadvantage that Yasuo might have are basically negated by the absurd amount of advantages has on midlane, he is just Zed 2.0: Infinity Blade Boogaloo in that respect.
It sounds like you should main Yasuo, and climb until you encounter people who know how to counter him.
: Just to show how inefficient Riot's system is at punishing trolls.
Why did you say that you were going to report him? Just report them after the game. Trolls want people to respond to them. That's their entire goal. That's like being upset about beggars, but handing out a hundred euros to every one you meet.

Letting other people play on your account will also result in a permanent ban.
: What is classified as friendly banter?
If you want to learn about banter, the first step would be looking up the definition. >ban·ter >/ˈban(t)ər/ >noun >noun: banter > > the playful and friendly exchange of teasing remarks. > "there was much singing and good-natured banter" >verb >verb: banter; 3rd person present: banters; past tense: bantered; past participle: bantered; gerund or present participle: bantering > > talk or exchange remarks in a good-humored teasing way. > "the men bantered with the waitresses" If you want to practice banter, I suggest going to a restaurant or other semi-public place, and trying to have an enjoyable conversation. Don't try to make friends. Don't try to get in anyone's pants. Just be friendly and have fun. Just talking about the weather will give you a very strained, forced, boring conversation. Liven it up, tell jokes, tell stories, ask questions. Have fun. There is zero danger of anyone viewing your comments as offensive.

: Reporting
Would you share your chat logs or whatever is displayed on your reform card?
: Friends account banned, need advice
You are allowed to name accounts as long as you aren't shaming them (for example: trying to get them punished). But, in this case it wouldn't be much help. The forums can't do anything for them, only Support can. You can have your friend check their match history, at op.gg or another site, and look for games that they didn't play. If their account was compromised when the action was detected, it's possible for them to get the account back. But, if they loaned their account out to a 'friend', reused an old password, or purchased a boosting service, then they're shit outta luck.

That's a good question. Nope.

There is no difference between 1 report and 9 reports. Was any of your chat in /all? Did any of your group report you? If they 'joke' reported you, then, this is a time to learn that jokes have consequences. If the answer is no for both, you can try making a support ticket and have all the people you were grouped with also create support tickets mentioning your ticket number telling Riot that they were not bothered by your chat. Then, it's possible that they'll reduce your punishment. Not guaranteed.

MMR is Match Maker Rating, it's a number that is used to match you with players who contribute approximately the same towards victory. https://na.whatismymmr.com/derpyfush It goes up or down depending on wins and losses. Everyone starts towards the middle.

The person who destroyed your account is responsible for replacing it.

On another note, LeaveBuster also doesn't required you to report anyone in order to flag an afk. Then why does the report option exist?
The report for AFK is for players that stop playing the game but continue to be connected. They could be sitting in fountain, wandering around the jg, or AFK pushing side lanes while refusing to group, defend objectives, or push objectives. (That last one is not to be confused with having an alternate view on what course of action will win the game, it is for those who are actively not participating.) When reported and detected, the punishment for those forms of AFKing is a 14 day or permanent ban.

: Trolling? You kidding right? 4 vs 5 and the system doesn't allow us to ff. Meanwhile a 3 vs 1 vote for an early ff would have passed. Opening mid is a way to finish the game quicker so we can move on. In what sense this is considered like trolling? Even the Riot employee didn't mention this was the action that lead to a chat-restriction.
Would you prefer that opening mid be completely acceptable? Let's duo. I'll play mid. Remember. You said it's not trolling.

Opening mid, being a form of trolling, should earn a 14 day ban. Using chat to encourage others to break the rules is also against the rules and punishable.

There are two things they are doing. First, they directly punish those actions. Second, because the people doing those actions are doing it for attention, Riot also punishes those who feed the trolls. >feeders This didn't fit with the other group. To deal with feeders, Riot has implemented an MMR system. People who feed will tend to contribute less towards any given team's chances of winning. That will lead to them losing games, and losing MMR. Then the matchmaking system will put them in games with other players who are at approximately the same skill level. >Why do you punish people who point out trolling, negative gameplay? Because Riot does not like trolls. Removing their motivation decreases incidences of trolling. >feeding Riot punishes pointing out feeding because chat is a tool for helping your team to win the game. Misusing that tool to be a tool annoys their customers. >What will you do to protect players who don't troll or feed from losing LP so they can rank up? Riot has masterfully designed the game so that there are only 4 teammates on your team and there are 5 enemies on the other, so any negative trait that you don't exhibit will effect your opponents 25% more than your team. ------------------------------------------ Goodness, I am snarky today. But, the information is sound. If you have any questions, I'll try to answer them directly, with a minimum of snark.
: One game lost is a ton of negative time for the remainder of the people in your game. You are responsible for managing you time. if you got a lengthier punishment I'm guessing this isnt the first time that this has happened. Just manage your time better. if you only have time for one game safely, then just play one game. its not great but again, it's on you to take responsibility and make the correct decision. If you enter a game and leave 10 minutes in, even if your team surrenders at 15 minutes, thats still 5 minutes for each player at 5v4 which is not a fun experience for your team at the very least, and all nine players at the most. This means that there are is up to 45 minutes of uneven gameplay total because of your poor time management. That doesn't count other consequences (LP loss, etc) that may come of it.
The full 15 minutes are wasted, not just the 5 where the OP was AFK. Then there's also Queue Time, Ban, Pick, and Loading. 20 minute LPQ x 5 games is 100 minutes. Just the 15 minutes x9 is already 135 minutes. That's if the team surrenders asap, and if you ignore all the other invested time. 20x5 is an injustice. It's like stealing 200 dollars and being fined 100 for it.
: New player (about to be former player)
Don't let yourself be berated. Don't let it go on and on. Mute them after the first unhelpful line.
: How Leaving One game Destroyed my week
No matter how aggressively LPQ is given, because it is capped at 20 minutes for 5 games, you will always have wasted more time for other people than you waste for yourself. When you look at how few games you can play, and see that 20 minutes is an imposition, know that you did that exact thing to 9 people. When you get upset about how your time was wasted, know that you wasted more time. Also, this is all because of your actions. Don't 'thank riot'. Blame yourself. This is your fault.

: Ya I did, I was just really perplexed to see it. Garen v Darius must have been s4 or s5 since that was last time i played. I'm not even using it to abuse low level games and "smurf" (not that a gold player could/should consider themselves a smurf, but still, I'm not about that life). Didn't smack talk anyone... didn't share acct, or give acct. But ya, we'll see. I made a ticket.
According to Krissi2197, GvD happened while honor was active, so it's possible that you were punished then. Your honor would still be at 0 in that case. If the punishment had been a chat restriction, you would have games left on it, but chat restrictions only reduce your honor to 1 (if you are above honor 1). Because you're at 0 honor, that means that the account was 14 day banned. When a ban expires, the reform card is no longer shown upon login.

New accounts start at level 2 right?
New accounts do start at level 2. I don't remember the timeline of Garen V Darius, but if it was before honor 2.0 was released, then even a punishment back then wouldn't have dropped your current honor. I suggest creating a [Support Ticket](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new).

But, other people breaking the contract they signed with Riot does not invalidate the contract that YOU signed.
: There is no way I got chat restricted for calling someone a dog, only from 1 game ...
It is likely, given your chat here, that other games also contributed to this punishment. It seems unlikely that you would not have been validly reported before this. But, punishments are escalated for smurf accounts, so even if this was your first outburst, it's not unusual that it would have earned a punishment.
