: Aram players are sooo toxic...
I've found the opposite - for the most part, my ARAM games are full of chill people just wanting to relax and have fun. Summoners Rift, less so. Ranked, even less so. ---- All that said, nothing beats the relaxation of playing TFT. Friendliest people I've met yet.
: Why not HWID ban repeat offenders?
I think permabanning the account is more than fair. Maybe permabanning the account AND HWID ban? Do you like that thought?
: Stop being a victim man. You're better than that. Take control of yourself and your emotions and get over the past.
I feel the same way. So many people grew up during the 'free love' movement, having all the carnal relations they could muster. And then I come of age during the height of the HIV epidemic. How's that for being born under a bad sign?
: Why not? If people shouldnt have to use it then why is the mute button even there? That was the main question of this post yet no one wants to answear it.
People SHOULDN'T have to install home alarm systems, purchase car insurance, hire bodyguards, and drug test their teens either. Unfortunately, the realiy is many people NEED to do those things. Because other people are dishonest, careless, dangerous, and destructive to themselves and others.
: "Because the damage is already done - people who are spending time flaming are not spending time contributing to good communication in the game." You said that the flamer not spending time on communicating in a good way was the problem Also if you say that the problem with flamer attitude is that they only focus on themselves not dying and not the best for the team then why dont all people that play that way get banned for it?
Overall, flaming brings the team morale down. Why is that so hard to understand?
: boys this is 2019 so people cant even have fun in games anymore. Flaming is a part of the game and makes the game more fun, if anyone doesnt think flaming is fun then that person can just mute the person flaming and everything is good. You dont have to ban a person for flaming when you just can mute them, if you think flaming is bad you can just mute a person with one button press but if you are like me and like flaming and thinks it is fun reading other peoples toxic messages you can do so. Why is everyone so easily offended that they ruin the games for us other RANDOM BASTARDS?
Because League of Legends is a gentleman's game. That's why there are Gentleman skins (cho, gnar) Plus, there's a film called League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And that film has Sean Connery in it. And Sean Connery is "Most Excellent™" and "Most Extraordinary™". We should be like Sean Connery. Thus, we should all strive to be extraordinary to each other.
: If you are seeing that someone is starting to get mad or starting to say mean things then maybe mute earlier ? dont wait until you start crying to actually try to do something about it. also if you get offended by someone spam pinging you then just use the mute ping button. if the flamer on the other hand goes out of their way to start feeding in order to make their team mad then they should get banned but someone that just flames but keeps on playing the game shouldnt be banned.
I mute and report on the first offense. That way, there no 2nd offenses, and eventually (over multipe games usually) there won't even be 1st offenses anymore (due to chat bans, suspensions, and permanent bans). Yes, muting is effective. Muting and reporting is even MORE effective than muting alone. You want the system to be LESS effective?

: Yup we should never let prisoners out of prison. It's their fault, they're in there.
While true, a permanent ban is Riot's version of "Life without the possibility of parole". The chat restrictions and 14 day suspension are just regular sentencing. Sometimes a ban gets over turned. That's like getting exonerated due to DNA evidence. :D --- And making a new account? That's like reincarnation. Maybe you (not you personally, obviously) are serving life without parole - but hey, give it a shot in your next life/incarnation. Maybe you'll do better.

: Account hacked and banned while not in use.
I'm convinced it's family/friends testing out cheats on a buddy's account. Pretty low thing to do. I'm sure there are plenty of cheaters/scripters who are getting nabbed/banned, but I'd wager a few are just folks who didn't properly secure their account. Hopefully riot has a little mercy on th latter. 'Twould suck you lost your account due to oversight. I've never had an account hacked/stolen, but it would blow nonetheless.

: hate speech is not subject to anything, only a very braindead binary "zero tolerance" system You could say "blacks are not even human, and I despise them and don't want them near me because they stink and are obnoxiously loud" and get no punishment because the system is too stupid to recognize that as hate speech. However, if you say "guys report Nasus, he called me a %%%%%%." "Wow, he just called me %%%%%% again, I have to mute him, I can't deal with this" you will be instantly 14 day banned.

: I don't know what sports you follow, but even professional matches get heated. Sometimes even amongst players of the same team. Generally speaking, unless it boils over into a physical altercation or is aimed at an official, it occurs without consequence because it's handlers understand that emotions run high in a competitive context. On the other hand, you'll never see players intentionally troll or throw even pickup games because the consequences are immediate. You'd be pushed off your team and barred from playing.

: guilt by association is not a thing... and Riot refuses to disclose any mention of how they determine if she was an accomplice in these crimes If someone steals a diamond from a jewelry store and gives it to their girlfriend, there's usually a profiling involved and unless the person involved was a girl with the same characteristics as the girl who had the diamond, there would be no way to prove that she was an accomplice without some physical record of plans or a witness that could not be discredited

: Some people are overly sensitive though
I entirely agree. I think that's what the difference of valid vs invalid reports covers. An overly sensitive person might report something that isn't legitimately report worthy. That's okay though, that report wouldn't do any thing. However, that same overly sensitively person might report valid behavior, and by encouraging them to report whatever makes them feel uncomfortable, Rito gets a larger number of reports through which they can sift and identify legit behavioral concerns. The more data the better, I'd think. YMMV
: Someone told me they loved me and I'm weird about intimacy so, yeah...reported. Good tip Rito
GreenKnight (EUNE)
: Yeah, that's why we still have a report system. If you think that their behavior is in any way detrimental, you should report them and move on.
That's kind of my thought. Honestly, I'm not as report-happy as I was when i first started in season 3. I used to report for all sorts of things. Then I mellowed out and now I try to save the reports for the stuff that bothers 'me' (feeding, griefing, ragequit/afks, etc). I use to get really offended by chat insults and would report them all the time. Now that being said I still do if they're... 'persona' (i.e. get cancer and die). But if it's just someone spouting off "get good", "pwned" (saw that the other day, are we still in the 90's? lol) then I just figure they're blowing off steam and I don't let it bother me. Granted I play for fun - not a lot of ranked, probably too many ARAMs. If I was more serious about playing (i.e. ranked) I might have a different outlook. Higher stress environment, there might be some things I'd let slide and other things I'd consider even worse (like a ragequit). But I think the system as designed (to encourage what bothers 'you') works well as a catch-all without needing different reporting systems for different modes. Just my take. Don't know why this subject interested me - first time I've seen that tip but I thought it actually made a lot of sense.

Not just any kind of discomfort should be reportable. I mean since Riot promotes and coddles that kind of mentality of being offended by anything, they're not going to reword this "tip"
My thought is it is kind of a catch-all. "Report that which you think needs to be reported." Maybe it's over-reach like during the McCarthy era or how homeland security encourages you to keep an eye on your neighbors (or is that just my hometown), but aren't valid reports just tossed to the side anyway? If I'm wrong I'd like to know.
: The problem is the word uncomfortable is incredibly relative and easily abused. Not just any kind of discomfort should be reportable.
While I agree in principle, I make the distinction between 'valid' reports and non-valid reports. I look at non-valid reports kinda like this: I used to to work 911 dispatch (police/medical/fire). We would get crank calls from time to time, and even well meaning calls of 'suspicious activity' (usually from the elderly). 99% of the time that suspicious activity was just someone getting home from work late at night. Sure, the police resources could have been put to better use I suppose, but in those 1% of cases where something came of it (arrested a burgler, or found a storage unit full of stolen goods, or stopped a domestic violence episode) it was a good thing. I like to the 'valid' reports make the invalid reports worth the effort.
Xidphel (NA)
: I'd love to but the report button is at the result screen. I settle with mute (just mute. Muteall is overkill) until I reach that point if the issue is chat-related.
That makes sense. While I can see the benefit of having a report option in-game, i could also see it used as knee-jerk response when someone does something you don't like. Having the report feature after the game gives you time to cool off and decide if: A) you really want to report / if the report is warranted, and B) if you think it's truly a valid report.
Rioter Comments
: yeah you are right, Im putting things in perspective and how it is received on this end. Is this discussion about putting blame or trying to improve. If you wanna make it about blame. Its on us. Nothing to say. Is it getting better ? Hell no it isnt Now can we do something about ? This was my suggestion. Do you have something constructive to say now ?
I think the system works fine as it stands. As intended. The fact it makes you upset is... unfortunate.
