Which ones had the 50% winrate, the bronze or the gold? :o
: 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. It's like finding Jesus... or something. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

It'd be pretty funny to see a society where no one makes amends for aggression bc they think it makes them look stronger. Anyhow, I think the strongest thing is calm, self-control. It'll get you further in life than being impulsive will.
You can see just such a society in the DPRK.

: 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.

Yeah, hadn't really thought about that aspect of it. Maybe it should put the replacement player at the average exp/level of all players in the game? Or maybe enhanced xp gains for the first few minutes (maybe for an equivalent time that the role was afk)? So for a 7 minute afk, the replacement player gets 7 minutes of enhanced experience, to give them a greater chance to catch up? I'm sure there are a thousand holes in this idea, LOL. But it's good brain exercise to speculate.
