: You are quite lucky - never witnessed any game at all where verbal abuse was fatal? People get caught up with each other - insults here, insults there, damn the whole motivation and focus get yeeted into oblivion - ADC suddenly ignores whole waves and is typing half a novel to the toplaner and so on. Stuff like that ruins the game aswell.
I've witnessed games go down the toilet because everyone is typing instead of playing. That does happen. But for every game where that happens, I see about 20 where people afk, grief, int, or troll
: You are not competing with your own team. **Anything** that derails the game is punishable, and that includes verbal abuse. There is absolutely no reason to call a stranger a r%%%%% in a video game.
"Verbal abuse" doesn't derail the game. You can mute people and move on. What derails the game are griefers and trolls. People who afk and feed their lane 10 kills before 10 minutes.
: > I don't understand why Riot bans who they do... Because their trying to cater to the sensitive people of the community
Reading the replies to my comment, I'm going to have to 100% agree with you. They almost all seem like self righteous people who act as if they have never insulted someone before. It's like they lack any self awareness. if these people are serious, they are like some buddhist monks or innocent little charubs. I'd like to be a fly on the wall when they are in an argument....

Obviously I don't just call random people that for NO REASON. If someone says something to me, or does something stupid around me that negatively effects.... then yes, I will and have called people that. Hell, there is a rather recent example of that. This dude was walking his dog without a leash. His dog jumped up on me and was growling at me. I told him to get a f-ing leash. He talked back to me, I called him a r e t a r d. This is a true story. Right, but here's the other side of that. You did nothing helpful in that situation. Had you said, calmly, "hey, your dog is trouble, can you put him on a leash?" By calling him a re, all you did was add "don't listen to anything else I say" to it. Insulting someone is the least effective way to change their behavior.
The dude was already demonstrating he didn't care. his attitude was rather shitty and the fact he didn't have his German Sheppard leashed to begin with made me angry, so I didn't handle the situation perfectly, obviously, but I was also literally frightened I was going to get mauled. So....
: Yes, it's how we used to communicate. Like how we used to call people f** all the time. Then we realized "this isn't unacceptable, time to change". Calling someone r%%%%%ed adds to the stigma around the word r%%%%%ed and the people with disabilities. Yes, times are a changing, this is your warning.
I don't determine how I communicate based on arbitrary norms declared by overly sensitive people who think calling someone r e t a r d e d is somehow negatively insulting mentally challenged people. If you go out of your way to call an actual mentally challenged person r e t a r d e d, you're probably a bad person. However, those people use to be called morons too btw, but we don't treat moron as the same as r e t a r d... R e t a r d is an actual word that means something isn't fully functioning or that is stunted. I'd say that calling someone a moron is probably more insulting honestly. Either way, I'm fine with both being used. It's an insult, it's not suppose to be nice.
: i call bs, you dont walk down the street calling strangers r****** with no backlash, complete bs
Why would I randomly call a person who did nothing or said nothing a "r e t a r d"? Obviously I don't just call random people that for NO REASON.

: > Which is probably toxic but honestly, It's how people communicate. Will you honestly tell me with a straight face that you frequently called STRANGERS in real life, people that can physically look you in the eyes and your soon-to-be swollen mouth, "r%%%%%s"? You do this often enough in real life to strangers you met for the first time do you? Is this not how you communicate? Or is this how you communicate ONLY when you don't have to physically look people in the eyes when you call them that? Because there's a word for people like that....
Yes, all the time.... maybe it's a generational thing but it's pretty common where I come from. It's like calling someone a moron or something
