You and others on this thread are correct that it's not ideal behavior. It's also not someone I would want booted from the community because they question why it warrants such harsh punishment.
Those are valid concerns, but one we obviously keep an eye on. We want the community to feel like they are shaping this community, and it's not simply Riot defining a bunch of rules. This is why our ruleset and definitions of what's OK or not OK is 100% dependent on the in-game tools and how players are responding to the behaviors.

The vast majority of players actually agree with these rulesets and definitions, and I realize that might be surprising to the forum population (which is heavily skewed and not representative).

A lot of players who rage in games say this point, but I can't find any validity to it. For example, a lot of players that are currently 14-day banned are raging in situations that don't warrant it. The player that went 0-1 and made a bad play? Suddenly abused for 5 minutes straight with obscenities by a toxic player. Toxic players will go all out on these plays, refer to it as "trolling" and spam the report buttons.

Is gameplay toxicity worth fixing? Of course. But right now, the majority of toxic players use intentional feeding reports as a weapon versus legitimate cases of intentional feeding. A bad play is not worth raging or abusing someone over. What a toxic player believes is a troll is usually just a bad play.

OP isn't guilty of these allegations.
What he is guilty of is getting flame baited by a troll in a system designed to **** over the victim.
If the community (and Riot) agrees that these behaviors are not OK, does it matter if you can mute them? Muting just stops the harassment from continuing. Players that exhibit these behaviors are a super small minority in the community--either they shape up, or they can spend their time elsewhere. It's your choice.

Don't remember saying that, there might be some misunderstanding.

The point is that when someone has to use the mute button, it means that damage has already been done. It means that someone had a miserable experience and wanted to stop a player from continued harassment.

The existence of the mute feature does not make it OK for toxic players to verbally abuse players match after match, then just justify it with "well mute me then f*ggot."

Why Are you guys punsihing me twice? I know for a fact after I recieved the chat restriction I haven't done anything to deserve a 16 day ban! I recal spending the few messages I had in the game talking to my teams about objectives.

lyte said the 14 day ban system was for "extreme cases with racism, homophobia, sexism, death threats, or that kind of thing"? I know I don't do these things at all. I might say "GG noob" to someone who was flaming at me or blaming me for stupid things, but other then that I don't do these things.

I would please like a reply and a reason as to why I was punished twice. I love this game and love to help people.
It looks like even after chat restrictions, you were being excessively abusive verbally in your recent matches. Looking at your last week of games, there are examples like this that escalated you to a 14-day ban:

[47:44] Jeyce: wtf ww???
[48:01] Jeyce: MF GOD DAMNIT
[48:03] Jeyce: THANKS

Must have forgotten that part eh.
Retaliation is never OK, and when you retaliate both of you are banned. Instead, you could have muted the player, reported them after the game and still been enjoying the game today while they are banned.

Really makes me feel like Riot cares.
It sucks to post "dirty laundry" so to speak, and I don't know any Rioter who enjoys doing it instead of just working on more positive things like new features. Generally, we handle about 90% of punishment cases privately; however, sometimes players are genuinely confused about their ban and are interested in comments from their peers. Sometimes, players try to persuade the community that they've been wronged and put on an act. In these more extreme, public cases, we'll have to post chat logs--not because the player demands it, but to re-assure the playerbase that the systems are accurate, and to show players what kind of behaviors are unacceptable in this community.

I'm one of the game designers working on League, so I mainly work with teams to develop new features. I pop on the forums once in awhile during breaks at work (i.e = lunch) to answer a few questions or review a few cases, or I do an hour or two when I get home after work.

Unfortunately not at my desk right now, but a 14-day ban could be due to Intentional Feeding, or excessive verbal abuse/racism/sexism/homophobia.

You should get an e-mail outlining exactly what the offense was, but the system might be delayed.

If we're going to measure an individual's skill with an individual ranking system, then the scale upon which that player's skill is based on has to be individual in order for it to remain accurate.

Dunkey made an interesting point in his escape from hell video... when somebody locks in something troll, or goes AFK, it doesn't make sense that those who are doing well or average need to suffer so much.

Players need to be rewarded for standout games that lead their team to victory, but shouldn't be penalized as much as the 0/10 guy for losing.

You could easily set up some kind of function that weighted each element of a person's performance and then subtract a flat amount for the loss of a game.

For example, if i happen to go 6/3/2 as fizz mid lane, but we surrender in 20 minutes, i should gain 8 LP for my individual performance BUT lose 10 LP for the loss. This way, the person's good performance is not immediately tossed or penalized as much as my janna who went 0/7.

If a person is getting stomped and losing games, then they lose a rapid amount of LP.

If a person is stomping AND winning, they should climb quickly.

You can't gauge an individual's skill with a system that does not look at the individual's performance. To compare to school, people work for their individual grades. What stands at the end of the year is their grade point average. That is a measure of their work/effort/etc. It does not reflect what their classmates did.
I see what you're saying, but it really doesn't work like that. Look at jungle Nunu vs Kha. Kha is going to rack up a bunch of CS and kills. Nunu is going to function more as a support in the late game. Both are contributing, but they play differently. That is what makes League of Legends such a great game. You build a team, and you take that team into battle. If other carries on your team don't have as many kills as you, it is in your interest to get them kills. You should not be incentivized for your individual greed. Your example is GPA. Well in that example, everyone has the same objective and is compared along the same lines. That might work in ARAM if every player was given the same champion.

I know AFKs and trolls are annoying, but they do not happen as frequently as you would believe. Odds are, that player is going to be on the other team because there are 5 wildcards on the other team, and only 1 on your team.

I have played in every division up until mid Platinum. That is where I just don't have the skill to move up. It would be easy for me to claim that my team was holding me back because I had great scores. However, I know that wasn't the problem. The problem was me. I finished 2 games in a row with over 20 kills, and less than 5 deaths. I had a Challenger friend go over my replays. His comments were as expected, I should have been able to win the game for my team, but I didn't play well enough to. Under Platinum, I have no problem moving up the ladder.

Thanks for bringing this up Houkai.

It does look like our e-mail messaging system derped and quite a few players who were hit with the MMR Boosting ban were ALSO hit with an e-mail about feeding.

However, I've double checked, and can confirm that your account (and others who received double e-mails) were hit only with MMR Boosting suspensions. So to clarify, no action was taken in this instance about intentional feeding on the account.

The MMR Boosting suspension is the same listed in the e-mail. Two week suspension, removal of current Ranked rewards, and in-eligibility of current seasons' rewards.

I understand you have some questions about how we found your account, but I have to say that we do not release the exact details. A lot of players would like to know so they can try to hide their tracks better next time.

With all that said, later tonight, I'm going to look up your support ticket in our site and I'll get back to you there to address concerns you have.

How'd you know D:

Well, now that I've been discovered, might as well give up my escape plans and return to Riot.

Okay, sorry for the bad joke. But seriously, I'm still around! Haven't been posting lately, but I've read a lot of the recent responses. General consensus: Upcoming buffs seem insufficient.

I'm on board here, they were a little bit on the conservative side, primarily because we are unsure of how much the E bugfix will affect her strength. But please know that I'll be continuing work on Cassiopeia until we get her into a competitive place. If these changes don't do that, then we'll add in some more next patch! I understand a lot of the same concerns from earlier are still in place (Q/W damage, mana costs, range, etc), and that these changes do not fully address them, but I do think they'll help.

I'll likely be starting a new post in Boards soon about all this, but I'll be sure to post here when I do that. Thanks for continuing the discussion here, even though I haven't been too visible and playing Cassiopeia has been a bit tough-- it means a lot to me. And, lastly, sorry she's been so weak, we clearly missed the mark here :/

Yup that was the plan the whole time. We started with Twisted Treeline, and shortly after that the SR textures update occured, then we did Howling Abyss. The idea was that we would develop the skills and tech necessary to make a full visual update to Summoner's Rift. The texture update was something the team did in a month to make the map decent until we could fully overhaul it. It was a long process, but it was worth it in the end!

Edit: Okay you have done some things. But can it scale with large threads? That is one of the most important problems I have yet to see addressed.
You should actually check it out before giving feedback dude. We want actionable feedback to make this better for you guys. Help us?

Today we’re launching a new General Discussion-inspired board designed with the classic forums in mind. As we’ve worked on the boards over the last several months, we’ve received a ton of feedback on what you’re looking for in a community platform. We’re excited to share that chronological view, classic Red Tracker within threads, quoting, comment voting and more have already been added to the new GD board.

While we’ve added the most requested components, we need your ongoing feedback because our goal is to work alongside the community to create a platform that can be home for all League of Legends players, whether they prefer classic style or the new Boards sorting options.

Everything’s designed to be flexible, so it’s much easier to create new features and options during this beta period. And, unlike the classic forums, we’re developing the Boards in-house. So when player feedback from surveys and posts makes it clear moderation is paramount, we can immediately build new tools and amp up our moderation efforts. That means getting notifications when content is deleted, more transparency around moderation actions, and an even bigger team dedicated to keeping the boards an engaging, safe and entertaining experience for anyone who stops by.

Moderation is only one example of where we can adjust and iterate on the fly, so please, check out the new GD, tell us where we’re dialed in, and where we might still be missing the mark.

Seriously though. I've ref'd LCS games and heard the players say things like, "I can't pick X, because I've never practiced that matchup."

Never solo Baron. Only take Baron or Dragon when you are certain your team can secure the objective, or come out ahead in the trade. (With the exception of a desperate play if you're about to lose.) It's far too easy to jump a wall, smite, and get a kill.

Establish your role as the leader from the beginning. Each new game you will have to earn the trust of your team. If they see you making good calls all game, they will be more likely to trust you with a critical decision. If you wait until things are bleak to speak up, you are less likely to have an influence. The flip side is also true .. you need to trust your teammates as well. When someone makes a mistake, don't attack them. They feel the mistake they just made. Treat them like you would anyone in real life, "Oh well, that's just one kill, we will be fine, we just need to play careful around that guy now so he doesn't get rolling".

One thing I was told by a Diamond player when I first started working here stuck with me. He said something along the lines of, "Sometimes you will be in a position to carry the game. And that's great. But there will also be many times where you will not be in a position to carry the game. Maybe you got behind, or got ganked, or things just aren't working out. In those situations, you have to stop trying to carry the game. Do your best to try to set up the other members of your team so that they can carry for you".

I'm not a great player either by any means, but its just important to remember that you won't be "the guy" every single game. And sometimes, games will just be unwinnable. That's fine, focus on doing your best within the microcosm of that game.

Then I challenge you to bring your team into the fold on this. If you have an entire team unified around a goal, you will be much more successful. I'm yet to see a solo Udyr secure an objective from 5 enemies. Your focus seems to be on you versus your own team. You mention that your team feeds, you mention that you do things around ... you are essentially fighting 9 players.

Which is usually met with "fuk u n00b u dont tel me how 2 play!111!1|one!1"
Your points are mostly focused around team fights. What I am suggesting is better objective control through the game.

"Ok guys, next time we see them top, we're going to get dragon."
"Good kills, we have time to get the mid turret, then lets back and buy so they can't counter Baron."
"They are baiting Baron, rush down mid to pull them away from the objective."
"Lets all roam together to get ward control deep in their jungle."

Entire games can be won without a single team fight. Look at the kill count in most pro level games, it is very low.

1.) Stop blaming other people for losses. Sure, there are games when other players on your team do poorly, but there are also games where you play poorly.
2.) Focus on what you can do to improve your own play.
3.) Pick 2-3 champions, and focus on those. A person can only truly master a few champions. Even pro players have relatively small competitive champion pools.
4.) Work on communication. This is a team game, that is focused on objective control. It doesn't matter if you go 25-0 if you can't rally your team around objectives. If you think you are better than everyone, take the lead and become the captain of your team.
5.) Don't be greedy with kills. If you are fed, don't pad your stats further. Try and distribute kills around your team to create a balanced threat.

I'm not the greatest player, in fact my max skill is around mid plat. I have multiple accounts, and can increase the ELO of my neglected accounts at will. See an example of my Riot account. I recently decided that I wanted to get it to Platinum, so I sat down for 2 days and hit the ELO grind.

Know when you reach your true skill level, and take a step back at that point to improve your skills. There are points when I find myself with 20+ kills, few deaths, and lose the game. It was my fault that we lost the game, no one elses. When I lose games like this I always go back to the replay and look for what I did wrong strategically.

(heres where yall senior members comment like **** heads)

why exactly is the players who can move up and get outa the hell of bronze and silver gets reported banned, chat restriction etc.and not those who cause it...
If the majority of players actually believed that we should let ragers rage and "gamers game," you wouldn't have been banned. It might be surprising, but you're in the minority if you think stuff like excessive verbal abuse is OK.


So why am i banned????? Lyte

we have cleaned up a lot of areas so that the walls come up to the navmesh now. Things should make more sense so it should be easier to tell what you can and can't jump/flash over now.

Thanks for the game. And yeah, that Noc was vicious, power farmed and then slaughtered us until we caught up enough that his glass cannon build couldn't function anymore.
