That's a valid point of view too, looking at it in terms of XP gained, rather than what would be an honest evaluation of what happened in the game. Respect.

: You have a thread on this on **Discuss the Boards**, which is a better place to discuss the matter. Ultimately, public opinion on GD does not solely determine whether or not a punishment is appropriate, and we much prefer that you not open multiple threads on the same topic, especially when the other has a fairly robust discussion going. That said, my own opinion is that the removal is justified, but that the punishment was unnecessary. I think that a request to express your complaints in a more respectful manner would have sufficed.

I think that a request to express your complaints in a more respectful manner would have sufficed. How would you describe "power mad" more respectfully? It's a straightforward term, referring to a specific type of behavior without any kind of prejudicial connotations. There was no deletion worthy disrespect in that message. If the op thought that whoever this person was abusing their power willy nilly, then this was a concise and direct way to express it. And while I agree that double posting is kind of problematic, I also understand the op's idea of trying to get this story to a larger audience's attention. After all, he got his post deleted and got banned for a day for nothing more than expressing a sincere opinion about a moderator's buddy. The fact that the most active moderators are lining up behind KnightsKemplar, defending this inexcusable action is clear indication that much like with American cops, you guys value loyalty to your in-groups more than having integrity and honestly carrying out the duties that come with the power. Which makes it seem like the problem the op brought up about whoever he was talking about isn't limited to that single person.

Well, first of all, legit, non-sarcastic congrats on managing to write two almost carbon copy answers to that, I assume independently of each other, at least we now know that the moderating team is operating on the same wavelength :D So that's good. The issue is not how many people like or dislike the rule, but whether how rational the rules are and how ready the people making them are to demonstrate their legitimacy by showing that they are more practical/reasonable than any alternatives. Who "likes" or "dislikes" those rules is an entirely irrelevant concern both in challenging and defending them.

Context, geez. Even as an idion, in general, the topic of rape is not something to be taken lightly or used as a joke. For example, the terminology of "I got raped" or something similar for referring to being beaten badly at a game is not terminology that is acceptable on the Boards even if some people do find it acceptable. The same applies to using the term "retarded" or "autistic" to insult another. Just because something is acceptable in context by some doesn't mean it is something that is welcome on the Boards. The reason these are generally not seen as acceptable is that they reference real life troubles, traumas, or horrific events. Someone that has been the victim of rape is generally not going to find it acceptable to use the term to describe something not nearly as terrible as what they experienced. On a side note, I personally do not find "eat the children" as appropriate either.

But sure, you can't be faulted for that. Here's a quick guide to the basics: - You start sentences with capital letters. One of these: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ - You end sentences with a punctuation mark, most commonly one of these 3: . ? ! The first one is called a period. You put it at the end of declarative sentences, most imperatives and somesuch. The second is the question mark, as the name suggests, you end questions with it. The third is an exclamation mark or exclamation point, as the name suggests it goes at the end of exclamations. - This is sort of overgeneralized, but you would use a comma (this thingy: ,) when there is a break within the sentence. - You also capitalize (start with capital letters) proper nouns like names, titles, the names of months and days, etc. Obviously this is a bare minimum, cursory look at punctuation, but if you just do these 4 things, you will produce intelligable text that doesn't melt people's brains if they try to process it.

: No, because the 14-day ban was for using a trigger word that is verboden. Even that card told me that "4 players have reported you in your last 20 games," which means that 4 out of 180 players reported me. That ban also had only 1 game in the reform card.

Yeah, people unilaterally changing strategy are the worst.
: Permanently Banned
You spent $1000 on an account and then went on toxic rants in games? I mean, I don't know about permanent chat restrictions, but you need to work on impulse control.
: No, rape is not an acceptable topic to discuss on the boards, even in jest, and certainly not within the context of talking about the game. You can certainly use many alternate phrases for either sentence that would be more palatable.

Some never learn. Well there you go, then. The op's idea is akin to saying, hey, I know this baker who got fired recently killed 8 babies, but he made really good bread, let's give him his job back. The quality of the bread isn't important at that point. If we tone it back down to the level of sexism vs champ design I would argue that the quality of work is relevant in terms of firing him in the first place, but if the reason for the firing was the sexism, it means they already decided that that's more relevant in not letting him work there.

Get {{item:3098}} when you are close to getting enough gold to complete quest. If you do that it won't be complete for the first half of the game, laning will most certainly be over. The point of rushing {{item:3098}} is that it doubles your gold income from poking and halves the remaining time needed to complete the quest.

The extra AP will help with the heals. > From here, it is all situational. I usually grab a {{item:3116}} for some more kite/chase potential, and some extra survivability from the hps. If the game has gone on this long, you are almost guaranteed a win if you or your team doesn&amp;#039;t make a major mistake. By now you will have your {{item:3040}} and be almost unkillable, while pumping out damage like a true born mage. Cool. Aside from the 1 major problem with not upgrading {{item:3303}} first it looks like a good build.

: A hard situation
He's not gonna get banned for leaving, Leaver Buster will pick it up and if it happens a lot, then there will be queue time penalties (I think). If this happens, it will be absolutely, unquestionably well deserved for behaving this way enough to trigger the system. If this was a one time situation, then nothing will come of it. As for you cursing your teammates out for being rightfully angry for you guys not showing up in time and him leaving early, that's something that can eventually turn into a chat restriction and eventually to a ban if it keeps happening.
: Well, I got permanently banned.
This is sensible and boring. :( Read a bit of the other banned people's posts and you will find out that the proper message in a situation like this contains at least 3-4 of the following: - A plea to get unbanned - A thousand mile long chat log with horrible behavior you claim shows that the ban was not justified - A strong assertion that the ban was unjust - A poll that asks if it was unjust with about 99% of the votes going toward "no" - An angry rant about how it wasn't even really your fault you acted that way - A rant berating your teammates from the game the chatlog is from If you end up making a new account and getting that banned too, I hope you consider the entertainment value of the post you make about that and conform to the standards of posting about account bans. For now, take a begrudging upvote.

Was this the sexist asshole guy? If it was, then he wasn't fired for the quality of work he did, so how much you like his champs isn't really relevant in rehiring him.

You list Veigar, the antithesis of a support. 3 straight damage abilities, one of which is a freakin&#x27; _execute_ and balanced around the idea of a strong ap build complimented by farming(!) with his Q. Come on, man... > This is only proving my point. Some supports are viable that build damage. Most people would think this pick is fine. The cage has a lot of synergy with any AOE / hard engage teams. > Leona is at her optimum utility in lane if she can play aggressive. On the other hand her engage is so strong that she can zone by simply threatening it, so she can play by a relatively passive adc&#x27;s side too. > Your opinion, not mine. I think she's trash if you can't play aggressively. So it forces you to play one way. And, if your opponent just plays safe you have no win conditions. > Ez could potentially do well in lane poking and zoning, but he under no circumstances stays in any way relevant once it gets to the midgame and onwards. > > Let&#x27;s be honest. You&#x27;d play Ez instead of a support because you don&#x27;t like supporting, don&#x27;t give a shit about the collective, in this case the team, and just want to goof around. If you&#x27;d want to play a safe, poking support you&#x27;d go Lulu, or Nami, or Lux or any of the other valid options. > Ezreal as a support can have a great mid game You just have to build scaling items...so when you're not winning hard you try and scale or if the lane is very passive in general. When you are winning you can build more damage oriented. Either way, you're more than just a ward bot in more scenarios than what you see as "typical support champions". > Never. They don&#x27;t have to, Leona is a viable champion for the role. > > As in, if somebody picks a viable champion indicating that they intend to follow the established strategy they don&#x27;t have to ask if that&#x27;s okay? That&#x27;s not a double standard. You don&#x27;t have to ask either if you pick a champ like that. > It is a double standard. You are saying it's okay for the entire league of legends support field to pick Leona whenever they want despite what the ADC has to say. But, when I want to pick Ezreal support, you have said multiple times I won't get the same kind of treatment from you. > No. You can leave it at this or keep debating, but I&#x27;m passionate about this issue and won&#x27;t just walk away with detached apathy. Okay, but what issue isn't solved? > > Okay, I&#x27;mma stop you right there. I&#x27;m not the one banned for trolling, and I&#x27;m not the one supporting the person who got banned for trolling. Obviously the pick itself wasn&#x27;t the reason, but the dirpy, goofy, not caring manner of play that included it isn&#x27;t a strong indicator that the you have a strong case to make about understanding how supporting works. I understand why you think it works. I also understand why it doesn&#x27;t. And also why it&#x27;s morally repugnant to just arbitrarily pick this shit into a team of randos. > I enjoyed hearing a lot of different perspectives on Ezreal support, what happened with my suspension & figuring out my own course of action. > Duh. The reason it doesn&#x27;t work is not because of anybody&#x27;s understanding but because of the champions inherent inability to function well in the role. > It works. There's even a game cited in my suspension card that proves you can win essentially 4v5's that you couldn't win with other laners. > Ooh, impressive. That would put you... what? One, one and a half item behind cs-ing laners. But luckily Ez has the utility to make up for this differ... wait, no, he doesn&#x27;t. If the other support is not trolling they too have around the same amount of gold spent, only they do have the utility to still matter. It doesn't matter if a CS laner is ahead of you or by how many items. It's about doing relevant, supplemental damage in team fights. He does have utility in the form of a slow from Iceborn Gauntlet which contributes to his power spike in the mid game.

How? How does Veigar, a champ you listed as a potential support being shown to be completely useless in that role prove your point? > Some supports are viable that build damage. Building damage on a support is fine. But it will be behind damage dealer's and to stay relevant the champ's kit has to have a significant amount of utility for the champion to be viable as a support. If you pick a champ like Veigar who has barely any of that, you are putting your team behind on purpose. > Most people would think this pick is fine. Even if that was the case, that would just make most people wrong. > The cage has a lot of synergy with any AOE / hard engage teams. What cage? Do you mean Event Horizon? Yeah, it's great cc. Also, the only bit of utility on Veigar. It's good, it's just not _enough_. That's literally the only thing Veigar instead of a support does. And you will never explain away the execute ult. > Your opinion, not mine. I know. It's a coherent argument and unless you have some sort of special power designating you always right, just stating you disagree won't make the point any less valid. > I think she&#x27;s trash if you can&#x27;t play aggressively. I've played with plenty of Leos who did well beside me and I'm about as passive a laner as you can get. If you zone by threatening engages, and engage when it's safe, she's fine in a passive lane. You must be confusing "passive" with "tourist", but you won't find a champion that can play tourist and contribute properly to laning. > So it forces you to play one way. And, if your opponent just plays safe you have no win conditions. If your opponent plays safely and doesn't give windows for you Leo to engage, you win by outcs-ing them. > Ezreal as a support can have a great mid game You just have to build scaling items...so when you&#x27;re not winning hard you try and scale or if the lane is very passive in general. When you are winning you can build more damage oriented. Either way, you&#x27;re more than just a ward bot in more scenarios than what you see as &quot;typical support champions&quot;. There is no such thing as a ward bot support. Take any support from my list and you'll get a decent selection from cc, zoning, peel, shielding, healing, team mobility, supplemented by a bit of subpar damage or tanking. With a 0 utility support _all_ you get is the latter. > It is a double standard. You are saying it&#x27;s okay for the entire league of legends support field to pick Leona whenever they want despite what the ADC has to say. But, when I want to pick Ezreal support, you have said multiple times I won&#x27;t get the same kind of treatment from you. You know, if I hire a painter to paint my room, I won't start telling him what tools to use, as long as I see him using things like brushes, roller painters and that sort of crap. When I see the guy grab a fishingrod out of his bag and start dipping it in the paint I'll stop him and get sy else. It's not a double standard against painters who use fishing rods, it's requiring the same standard from all painters. > Okay, but what issue isn&#x27;t solved? Issue? Solved? What are you talking about? We are discussing your nonsensical claim that Ezreal, of all champs, can be played instead of a support any time, anywhere and people should all be happy about it. There's no solving issues here. > I enjoyed hearing a lot of different perspectives on Ezreal support, what happened with my suspension &amp; figuring out my own course of action. In what way does this address the quote to which you are responding with it? > It works. Yeah, you said that. You even gave a flimsy argument as to why you think that is (which is to your credit, because most people who ad nauseam repeat their original point fail to even do that.) But your arguments are addressed at this point, so let's do this thing where instead of trying to reset the discussion to it's beginning you respond to what's new. > There&#x27;s even a game cited in my suspension card that proves you can win essentially 4v5&#x27;s that you couldn&#x27;t win with other laners. No, there isn't. Name one situation in which a single game proves any more general statement on its own. Even the notion is ridiculous. > It doesn&#x27;t matter if a CS laner is ahead of you or by how many items. It&#x27;s about doing relevant, supplemental damage in team fights. No, it's about how you could do much better on champs that don't rely on itemization. Any support that doesn't go for a full support or tanky build can deal "supplemental" damage. They also have a variety of very useful tools in their kit to impact the fight more than just by administering some weenie damage. > He does have utility in the form of a slow from Iceborn Gauntlet which contributes to his power spike in the mid game. 1) A slow is way, way subpar utility when you compare to what actual support champs are working with. 2) Unless I missed a patch and Ez has a new passive and now starts with an Iceborn Gauntlet, that's not utility in his kit. That's utility anybody can build. Wtf? 3) You keep repeating this mid game power spike shit. Let's assume for argument's sake that it's a thing and more significant than a powerspike from just simply finishing an item. By mid game everybody compared to him is way more powerful. If your "power spike" takes you from being able to do a third of the damage damage dealers to half, you still remain irrelevant as a damage dealer.
