I wanna que up and just mess around and have fun, not be badgered to play like my life depends on it and have every death turn my teamates into cannibals trying to devour my soul

Thats why URF was a dream come true. I could finally just mess around and pvp for fun and dying and playing like a pro didnt matter. Then they took it away from us along with the tribunal and things just spiraled completely out of control. Even in ARAM people are playing like their lives depend on it and file false reports against teamates to get them back for playing bad
One thing I really gotta tell you is to not worry about frivolous reports. There's a few things to keep in mind:

1. People who abuse reports, their reports become meaningless. So anyone who's abusing the report system is basically not abusing the report system. So you truly don't have to worry about abusers putting you in the tribunal, or up for restrictions. If this is your primary concern, do whatever you can to push that out of your mind. I've looked up my report history and had a bunch of bogus reports for things like "Didn't build a Trinity Force" and "Is impersonating a Rioter" and I have never ended up in the Tribunal, with Chat Restrictions, etc. And I know I lose my temper sometimes, so I have real reports in there, too.

2. If you're only playing League to kick back and have fun, why are you playing a ton of Ranked Games, then?

But again, all I can do is just keep restating point #1. Fake reports aren't going to get you.

I've been playing League for about a year now (technically played a little back around early 2011, but I left for a while since I was mostly into playing RuneScape). When I first started playing League I really enjoyed playing. Even when I lost games, I pretty much still had fun and was always eager to try playing champs until I got better. I especially played Ashe a lot pre-level 30. At the time though I didn't quite understand the meta (eg. adc/supp bottom lane, etc.) and I assumed I was good at playing ranged champions. As time went by, I realized I was actually awful at playing adc and pretty much moved on to being mostly a support/jungler since csing is generally not so good with me. I didn't start finishing my placements for my first games of ranked until around March 2014 and got placed in Silver 2. I was actually feeling good because I didn't end up in Bronze.

Well from there I stuck to doing jungling/supporting, but lately (maybe as of 5 months ago) I started not being happy with playing League. I go from being excited about what will happen every game to being worried about losing or teammates getting mad at me if I do awful. I see to be long alot of games recently. A recent example of this would be the top lane Cho'Gath game I tried to play. At the end of that game I had all of my teammates (except the Lucian) basically rage at me at the end game chat.

Now I know things like this aren't supposed to bother me, but it just gives me a sense of fear of playing PVP games when things like that happen.
At this point I feel like playing League is more of a chore than having fun. I don't know it's because I think about trying to win too much or the fear of teammates getting angry with me if I perform poorly, but there's just something that makes me feel miserable when playing League now. I've even reached the point where I play LOTS of Co-Op vs AI games just to avoid problems as much as possible (I believe I have around 2100+ bot games played). I try reading about champs on sites like Mobafire or Lolking and watch YouTube videos on mechanics, but noting has really improved for me significantly since I got into League about a year ago. I'm even starting to believe I'm not actually a Silver 2 and I'm probably somewhere much lower than that. Because of my mentality now I literally am scared of playing ranked games and I'm slowly losing LP due to inactivity there.

I'm overall not a negative person but as of recently I noticed I'm a bit more moody. Whenever I'm doing bad in a game, I have the "I wanna surrender at 20" mentality, which is something I never did in my earlier stages of playing League. I would even respond to people who had bad things to say to me with things like "stfu" or "f you", another thing I never really did earlier. I generally agree with your advice with taking a break, but I seem to be addicted to playing League and trying to get better at it to reach Gold. I feel like if I stopped playing for a little while, I'd only get worse than I already am in terms of performance. I'm basically stuck in a cycle of playing almost everyday, but not having fun/improving now, and I have no idea what to do at this point. :/
I'll admit I've not personally encountered that type of ladder anxiety before, the one brought on by potential teammate raging.

My advice to you would be to find some friends to play with and go for Ranked 5s. It seems to me you want a badge to show how hard you've worked, but it's hard to deal with the attitudes of random teammates sometimes. Play Normals with the intent being "Find guys who are chill who want to play Ranked 5s." Try to eliminate the part that's stressing you out while still getting to play the hardcore Ranked experience.

In terms of self-improvement, I find the best examples are the ones literally used by pros, rather than the guides written by strangers on the Internet: http://na.lolesports.com/eu-lcs/2014...-vs-alliance-0 for example.

Hey man, I don't pretend to know you as a person, but there is a small piece of advice I want to share:

If you are playing games to escape from some real-world pain, that's fine. A lot of people use games for an escape. I've done it plenty of times. So I feel you there.

However, try to be conscious of what kinds of games you're playing. If you're in a state where any time a teammate gives up first blood, you fly off the handle... that's just not good news for anyone. If you're in that kind of place, you should stay away from team-based multiplayer games until you calm down a bit. Why not play a shooter where you don't have to talk with your teammates or rely on them for your individual success? What about an MMO? Go kill some skeletons to relieve stress. The truth is, League of Legends is really heavily-based on teamwork and cooperation among strangers (or friends). If you're agitated, it might just not be the right game to play at that time.

If that was true, what is the point of going directly to long bans, especially for chat violations, against players who have never been warned or punished before? Should we expect long bans issued without any warning and without explanation to be regular aspect of how Riot manages the game from now?
This is a great question.

For the majority of players (74%), the first warning in the Tribunal was enough for them to improve their behaviors. In fact, with warnings + chat restrictions, that number goes up to 75-77% in many servers.

More % of players improve their behaviors after the next tier ban, but at the end of the day, we see about 1-3% of players refuse to reform regardless of the consequences. Systems like the one here try to identify those players, and immediately escalate their bans to the highest tiers. We've seen that players who tend to be consistently severe in their behaviors tend to never reform, which is why we built a machine learning approach to try to identify these patterns.

In general, we'll always focus on reform. It works for the vast majority of players that ever see a punishment system; however, by giving the worst 1-3% so many chances, we're actually letting them ruin a lot more games and players' experiences and that's something we want to try to reduce.

Third, It is pretty biased and one sided when you only post MY chat logs of course its going to make things turn out in your favor.

900 ranked games and never been banned and you come across with a 14 day ban over a stupid reason to "test out your system" like we are some sort of lab rats.
Retaliating in a toxic way is unacceptable in League. In fact, in many cases, both players end up being punished. Just because "someone started it" doesn't give you an excuse to ruin up to 8 other players' experiences.

When the features are complete, the Reform Cards will show the entire chat log and replace Summoner Names with Champion Names. For now, we only post the offending players' chat log to maintain the other players' privacy.

Actually, to clarify a few things: Tribunal wasn't broken. We had to take it down for some pretty immense upgrades, such as retooling the algorithms entirely to include machine learning, to add positive cases for review, and to make the system globally viable in every language around the world--that's a lot of work.

What we meant by diminishing returns was, the system was getting so accurate that continuing to work on accuracy was hitting diminishing returns. Instead, by using machine learning, we can also focus on improving how the Tribunal handles the 'severity' of cases and improving the speed of the system.

We'll be bringing the system back globally, which is a huge goal for us because for awhile only servers like NA/EU benefited from the system.

I saw the OP use the phrase in a few games, but it wasn't related to jungling. I understood it as "I'm not giving you any cr*p" when he clearly was. I might be wrong!

Hm, maybe a new policy is if players want to complain about their ban but it's justified, it automatically gets escalated 1 tier...

Sure I spam pings sometimes, and sure sometimes I get bad games where I do horribly and feed early game due to bad plays.

But, do you Rioters aka Lyte and Wookie, know that you get reported for anything and everything nowadays? For ex. I could be 2/8, we would lose the game, and then I would get reported by my whole team "OMG NOOB FEEDER GG report please". My team would also encourage the other team to report me because I was playing badly. This is the mindset of LoL players today, and I find it kind of disturbing that professional adults who work at Riot such as Lyte, thought it would be a great idea to post on his twitter that they are conducting a "test" or "experiment" sending out huge unfair ban waves to a multitude of players without prior warning? I believe I speak for a majority of the LoL player population, WE DO NOT CARE FOR YOUR POINTLESS TWITTER NOR CARE ABOUT YOUR TWITTER UPDATES. If you are going to be making an impacted update such as sending waves of 14 day bans, I believe it shouldn't be posted on Lyte's twitter feed but rather on the front page so that people who launch the LoL client will ACTUALLY see this.

A good example of this would be when Riot upgraded the automated tribunal system to quickly hand out chat restrictions. Guess what? It was posted on the front page so that everyone knew about it and it was fair game. However, you LYTE posted this update on your social platform where half of us don't even care about the fact that you possess a twitter account. A more MATURE and APPROPRIATE action would be to post on the front page of the NA LoL website "Warning we are conducting a new system that will start handing out 14 day bans displaying extreme toxicity after (insert date)" and then GIVE US A CHANCE TO REFORM FOR OUR PAST ACTIONS. If people start displaying toxic behavior after the date, then 14 day bans would be fair and there would be less complaining threads on the forums.

I don't understand how Riot allows such unprofessional employees such as Lyte abuse his privileges like he is on some sort of a power trip. The customer always comes first, learn to give fair warnings and MAKE SURE THEY ARE PUBLICLY VISIBLE. Riot really needs to use their resources wisely and hire more mature and competent adults to monitor their game rather than Lyte.
Hey Wargod1212,

First, I apologize for posting information on social media and not doing a full announcement. We were just doing some tests of a new system and were planning a full announcement when the system went live. Clearly players wanted more visibility on that information and that's my mistake, and we'll learn. When the features are finished testing and there's a full system, we'll still do a full announcement. But in the future, we'll try to get the messaging up-front.

However, I'd like you to be more honest with your posts. It's very clear that you use chat, and I've pulled games from as recent as last week. Secondly, I don't think posting on the front-page or in-game excuses you from the behaviors you've already done. You created a ton of negative experiences for other players, and we never said that every player gets a clean slate when the tests began. Even if we did a warning on the front-page or in-game, we'd still give you a harsh penalty. In fact, the team was very close to giving you a permanent ban for your recent behaviors in the past week alone. Nearly every single game looks like the chat logs below:

I have a feeling you know what you do in games, so please try to make an effort to own up and be accountable for your own actions. Blaming others isn't going to get you anywhere here.

What I don't understand is why you guys aren't mentioning ANYTHING about the fact that the reason melee need to be overloaded is because you guys have taken out ANY drawbacks of being ranged in this game. They have no turnspeeds, no cast times, and there's no reduced MS on backpeddling in this game. They can freely kite all day without any issues.

Quote:
To clarify, I was saying ranged don't have those weaknesses right now today. They really don't have any weaknesses inherent to being a mage or ADC. It would be nice if there was some inherent property of ranged champions in the same way bruisers have the generic property of "you can't kill things at range" (with a few exceptions to keep things spicy of course).

So here's my question: Why hasn't there been more talks (publicly) about implementing a similar (hidden passive) for bruisers and fighters that's specificly advantegoues for fighting carries? Something like, "Any champions with a 'Bruiser' or 'Fighter' tag does X% bonus damage against any champion with a 'marksmen' tag.)
Something like that might work. The basic stats may be there that if ADCs had low armor and melee had high armor that you'd get the same effect. Your idea might not cause melee vs. melee fights to be slow. Does it feel too game-y, like a combat system that couldn't solve inherent problems and needed a band-aid slapped on?

Quote:
Am I just confused at what your job is? I am under the impression that you are the guy in charge of the balance team even if you delegate the patch to patch balance. Given that most of what people want is for you to go to the patch to patch subdivision of the balance team, tell them "Hey guys you said you would keep an eye on fighters so they don't suck. Yet they currently do suck. Fix it."
I have no problem if you hold me accountable for the balance of the game. I'm totally fine if you blame me for anything, and honestly most Rioters would feel the same way. When I say I'm not the guy working on something, what I'm saying is that if you have a problem, concern or question with a specific champion (or feature or whatever), you should address that to the Rioter working on that champion. He or she will know all the numbers backwards and forwards, has context on various ideas that have been tried, will have well established goals for what they are trying to bring about, and has just thought about it a lot more than I have. He or she is more qualified to have that discussion, and is able to do so. That is one of the things I love about Riot. They won't always answer. Maybe they're too busy. Maybe they had a bad experience on the forums lately. But they will see the feedback, I promise.

I honestly think your multiple posts have helped most sane individuals understand exactly the point youre trying to make
Awesome. It was all worth it then. To clarify, I'm not pitching a particular solution but framing the problem so that we can get relevant feedback from you guys (and it doesn't all have to be today in this one thread of course).

Quote:
Ghostcrawler, whats your opinion about meele hypercarrys
The notion of melee hypercarries is cool. We agree that they currently don't give up enough to fill that role (which in turn probably keeps them from being as great as they could be late game). If say Yi needed more babysitting early (because he was building to carry and suffered in early or mid game survivability) then he'd be justified in exploding late like a marks hypercarry. Overall, it's a good idea that is not quite there.

Quote:
I think that, if you DO want all champions to be diverse, then at the end of the day some specific matchups between champions will always boil down to being slap fights.
That may be the case, but we think we can do better (and you deserve better). There are too many melee, most designed around the 2011 and 2012 era, that don't have enough abilities that really make you play them differently or react to them differently as the other team. Many of you have brought up specific cases of champions whose mechanics you do love, and that feedback is useful. Just be sure to distinguish between loving the mechanics or loving the champion despite the mechanics.

Quote:
I don't have the bandwidth to post.
I don't have the bandwidth to address every point that gets made or give my analysis of the health of every champion currently in the game. I've made an extra effort to try to frame the melee conversation because there seemed to be some confusion about what I was saying. I do love talking to players, but I don't always have as much time as they deserve.

Quote:
I think what we're trying to get at is that while it may not be fun to "watch", most melee fights are fun to play.
Fun is super subjective, so it's not always easy to talk about. I can take all the wind out of your sails by saying "Well, I find it fun," and you can do the same. Suffice to say in this case we have heard enough feedback from players saying that melee vs. melee duels could be more exciting to play that we decided to take a look at it. This is something we've been talking about for some time -- I hope it's not new information.

Quote:
First off, you don't want a game where the interaction between melee and ranged isn't REAL. You don't want a game where the only REAL interaction is to burst the marksmen instantly or be killed one at a time. You don't want all your hopes in having a "fair fight" where the marksmen's weakness is an actual weakness revolves around killing him before he can contribute to the fight.
Right. This is a form of counterplay, but not a very deep one. If I reach you, you die. If I fail to reach you, I die. Ideally, there would be more counterplay than that, where I have some solutions if you kite me and you have some solutions if I manage to close with you. I described this relationship as binary in another post, but I don't think I described it well, because it caused some confusion (amplified by a bunch of accidental or willful misquotes). I didn't respond to many of the other points you made, but I thought they were good ones.

Has there ever been any consideration that perhaps there is nothing wrong inherently with ranged or melee champs but merely the item choices that make them the way they are
Totally. TBH, we think itemization is a big part of it.

Quote:
A rioter posted a while back that Bruisers are a completely flawed and regrettable design, and I couldnt agree more. I think it was Ghostcrawler tbh, but that isn't what matters.
That doesn't sound like me, and I don't think they are regrettable. I think they suffer from a little bit of an identity crisis. Players (and devs!) should be able to state fairly clearly (with room for exceptions to keep it interesting): What is a bruiser good at or bad at? How does a bruiser differ from a tank? Is a melee carry different from a fighter? We focused a lot on creating interesting champions, but didn't put enough design into what it meant to belong to a particular role.

Quote:
Be it itemization changes/champion changes (it is likely going to be a combination of both) - it is possible to make the MvR interaction viable without making it OP - given that all factors are considered!
Yes. And I appreciate the rest of your analysis. That is the kind of thing we need and plan to undertake, with sufficient feedback from players of course.
Quote:
Are you saying this as something you want to do as a designer or the same way that I say "It would be nice if I had a billion dollars"?
No, we really want to do it. It might be too hard. It might be too disruptive. But we want to try. We don't think League is a fundamentally flawed game -- far from it. But we do think we need to do some amount of "systems housekeeping" to keep the game mechanics from breaking down like an overworked washing machine as we fill it with more and more varied champions and items. I appreciate the rest of your post too.

Actually, we're still focused on reform first. But, that doesn't mean harsher penalties are off the table. For the majority of offenders, they get warnings first, chat restrictions first, and then escalate to a harsher penalty like a permanent ban--that's multiple chances to reform.

For some offenders, some offenses are so severe such as real life death threats that they could immediately be escalated to a permanent ban. For some offenders, we don't believe they have a chance at reform, so escalating their punishment is the best solution to avoid the offender creating negative experiences for thousands of players.

Any evidence of toxicity gathered prior to this policy should be null due to Ex Post Facto law.
14 day bans were also handed out before for the exact same offenses.

But it didn't give any insight into the game whatsoever. The patch series you pioled however, is also fun but this time I'm learning alot about the mission and goals of riot and there responses to players ( snoop in that first one ).

I was so happy to see it was longer then 5 min or so. For informative information like this I would not mind 20min but i'm sure there is not always that much to even say.

Overall I would love to see more riot produced spotlight's ( even on items ). Clearly everyone LOVES the cg movies you guys make and we want more but we are all aware of the difficulty of creating that level of excellence so take your time on those ... just not to long :P
Thanks Opi!

We want more too!!

I dunno, but is it a hard work to update most champions' quote bank to be similar to, say, at the very least the current Ashe (but it'll be better if it's like Braum atm)? It'll be great for 'dynamic storytelling', something like Gangplank-Miss Fortune having taunts to each other, or maybe Pantheon having a special joke when facing Leona. And then there's some whose voice banks are just severely limited and needs a lot of updates, yet not exactly needing visual/gameplay update. The aforementioned Gangplank, Singed, Fiddlesticks, Tryndamere (except if he goes Demonblade) are such examples.

Well, Riot? At the very least, you can tell me if even such updates take A LOT of work...
Hey there!

Great question. We agree that there a ton of older Champs that need love in the voice-over department. The plan is to continue on with increasing the amount of Champion voice-over when a Champ gets a full relaunch.

There are several reasons for holding off until a proper relaunch, some of them aesthetic/quality-focused, while some of them are technical.

Trust us, we want to see ALL of the oldies-but-goodies getting a lot more to say, and it will come with time; the Relaunch team isn't going away anytime soon.

Have a great weekend! =)

It's an interesting question, as we obviously can't determine the race behind the accounts.

However, the key is that racist slurs create a pretty negative experience for the other players in the game, so that's why it's been penalized so severely. We even penalize retaliatory racism/homophobia etc because when 2 players start going at it, it just makes the game even more miserable for the 8 other players.

The fact of the matter is that this is Ex Post Facto in effect. The claim that changing the punishment to fit the same crime is directly infringing on the rights of the player. Now, again, if he has shown toxicity consistently within the allotted time of the policy, then the ban is acceptable. But, if that is not the case, then Riot may need to readjust the system to better align with the rights of the community.
I should have clarified: players have always received permanent bans for excessive racism, homophobia, leaving/AFKs, death threats, etc. Before, Player Support used to hand these out in waves, and Tribunal used to hand them out after closed cases.

Now, multiple systems can hand these penalties out and at much faster cadences.

The point here is that the bruiser role, as it currently stands, is too narrowly constructed. There are lots of things that bruisers could do in teamfights, but the only one we care about is them succeeding or failing at diving the ADC. This is largely a question of kits -- relatively few bruisers have a kit that can succeed at doing anything else in teamfights.
Yes.

Quote:
For the lane to be fun, we need bruisers with more gameplay than "Q them on cooldown" (GP) or "I run up and E all over their face" (Garen).
Agreed.

Quote:
ADC balance was absolutely dreadful 4 months ago when Xypherous started looking at the systems problems. BT was the only first item, for everyone, even Ashe who hates BT. That meant that only castery ADCs were viable, which meant that ADCs didn't have very good scaling, which meant that tanks seemed incredibly tanky. Also, it meant that we had a really, really narrow meta in the bot lane.

They may have overshot the mark on ADC strength. It's a possible outcome. My thesis is a bit different. I think the problem right now is that early game sustain is too weak for bruisers after the DBlade and DShield nerfs. That DBlade nerf was gigantic and I don't think Xypherous spent enough time studying what it would do to top lane. Now bruisers are really struggling in lane, and that's coloring our impression of everything that comes after.
Also a good analysis. I wish I had jumped into this discussion a few months ago, because today the discussion is being dominated too much by bruiser - ADC balance, when really what I'm talking about is bruiser - ADC design, if that makes sense.

Quote:
I think what makes melee such an exciting class is how it interacts with the ranged class. Positioning, use of item actives, and management of cooldowns or dodging what a ranged player can throw at you before you attempt to gap close is really fun to watch and it's what makes melees exciting for me to play and play against. As a ranged player you're always managing your spacing against a melee, as a melee you're trying to outsmart the ranged player and catch them.
I think that is true as well. I'm not saying ranged vs. melee is fair or balanced, but I do think it's interesting in that it's inherently asymmetrical.

Quote:
can you give us your reasoning as to why you don't think those should be the burden of ranged?
To clarify, I was saying ranged don't have those weaknesses right now today. They really don't have any weaknesses inherent to being a mage or ADC. It would be nice if there was some inherent property of ranged champions in the same way bruisers have the generic property of "you can't kill things at range" (with a few exceptions to keep things spicy of course).

No systems are perfect so obviously there will be false positives. In fact, even when every single case is reviewed by a human being, there are still errors sometimes. As people get tired they might miss something, or they might click the wrong buttons in the interface. However, every time we see a request on social media, we'll commit to being transparent.

If he was actually intentionally feeding and not just having a bad game, he'll get a penalty too. It doesn't make it OK for you to sh*t on him.

Like others mentioned, we can easily see in your match history all the games people thought you were feeding too. There's a 0-10-1 Nidalee game where everyone else on your team did pretty well. Should you get a ban for that game, or was it a bad game?

This player seemed genuine and was already trying to change--there's no need to go into chat logs here.

We post chat logs when players complain about unfair bans, or try to lie about their bans. We do this so that players have full transparency that the systems are working.

While I do agree with the idea of the 14 day ban, I believe this case may be infringing on the rights of a player and thus might need to be looked at again.
Actually, that's only if crimes were not considered crimes before a certain date.

Extreme racism, homophobia, sexism, etc were always considered offenses that violate the Summoner's Code. The only difference is that players are getting a different punishment (and at a different cadence) than before.

Now to fix the REAL problem which is what caused this player to rage i the first part? That takes work, energy, and money and riot has ZERO interest in fixing that part, they just want to punish the people who get frustrated and retaliate via chat, now it gives the illusion they are trying to fix "all that toxicity".
Actually, a lot of work is being done to fix the underlying issues that create frustration. For example, we'll be talking soon about a new system that aggressively addresses Leavers and AFKs. Secondly, matchmaking is being continuously improved, which is why you recently might have noticed that Blue/Purple win rates are back down to about ~50%.

Every player has a bad game. If I looked at your match history, I can easily find games where you had a bad game. How do you "fix" a player just having a bad game? Even professionals in the NBA, NFL, NHL and Olympics have bad days--that's why the world's "best" doesn't necessarily win every Olympic event and sometimes you have underdogs win it all. Should players throw racial slurs at you or sh*t on you repeatedly during that game? Should we, as a community, say that if you're having a bad game you deserve racism, homophobia, sexism and more?

Long story short. Been toxic in the past, saw 14 day ban tweet from RiotLyte, improved my behavior, got banned, no reason given. Filled out a ticket to support yesterday and was told someone from Player Behavior will contact me which hasn't happened as of yet.

I'm not the normal person who comes on here claiming innocence. If I'm banned because I was toxic in some manner can I at least know what I did for it to happen? Did it happen since the ban announcement? Was it something before that?
Hey, you were banned because of verbal abuse in games since 7/14/2014.

Quote:
The crazy thing is, since the 14 day penalty was announced (4 days ago) and I pretty much clammed up with people being rude to me in game, I went from Silver 5 0 lp to Silver 4 45 lp and I'd been stuck at Silver 5 for a long time because my MMR apparently was trash. Hence my toxicity from the past.

Literally in the last 4 days, I've played 22 ranked games and won 16 of them. I honestly believe it's because I just muted people or just stayed quiet where normally I'd go on a tirade. Trust me, I noticed the difference my win percentage immediately so I see the benefits of a nicer attitude in game.

Anyway, more or less I'm just venting and I'm told that maybe a Riot employee can catch wind of this and who knows, maybe I was a jerk to someone and deserve the ban. If that's the case, then I'll eat my punishment. If my chat log is posted in here, that's fine. Everyone can laugh at it and I won't mind.
We shouldn't post chat logs here, as I think you're aware of the stuff you said in the past; however, the current tests do process some older chat logs as well which is why your account received a ban.

Quote:
I do have a couple of questions though.

1. How does chat restriction work exactly? I've been notified in the client of people reporting me for negative attitude two or three times in the past couple weeks but other than that, I've had no warnings. So, I never got put on chat restriction and just got hammered with 14 day ban. Just seems odd is all.
It looks like your account was on your way to your first chat restriction, and the first few notifications in the client telling you about people reporting you are similar to warnings. However, the current tests is able to 'escalate' players to the front of the queue if the behaviors are severe enough.

Quote:
2. When I'm notifed via e-mail of the ban, I'm just told I violated the terms of use. Why can't Riot be more specific so I know the exact course of action to take to correct my failure to uphold those terms without having to contact support to find out?

Thank you for your time!
In the future when the system is complete, you'll get a "Reform Card" that outlines the behaviors that led to your ban. During the test, Reform Cards are offline.

This is because it's a test. If it was a full completed feature, a lot of these issues are solved in Reform Cards which are sent to players that outline specific chat logs that led to the ban. In this test, most players actually are well-aware of the reasons they received the ban, so they don't post on the forums.

I'd challenge that there's a lot of damage to the playerbase; so far, the vast majority of players that got a ban deserved it and they were providing so many negative experiences to other players in their matches that we don't want them to play League.

I'm going to post a few of your chat logs here, but as a reminder to those who haven't seen my other posts, we cannot post the Summoner Names of every person in the chat log due to privacy issues, so we'll just be posting your specific chat. Secondly, in the future when Reform Cards are back online, chat logs sent to players will have the chatlog from the entire game, but with Summoner Names replaced with Champion Names except for the player receiving the punishment. Finally, just because a player is toxic to you doesn't mean you can respond with verbal abuse or racial slurs--all this does is create an even more negative experience for the up to 8 other players in the match. If someone is toxic, simply mute them and move on or both players will end up being punished.

One final note. Google Me Dude, we all make mistakes. I don't care if you're Challenger or in the LCS, every player in the game makes mistakes, and every player plays poorly once in awhile. None of that gives you the right to sh*t on players constantly in matches. If you want to win more matches, you need to become a better teammate and leader; for example, if you actually want to lead your teams, you probably don't want to call them a ******.

Hey SEAN BOY,

Try to stay neutral or positive in your matches. I double checked the systems and at the rate you're going, you're going to receive a permanent ban.

We're working on the permanent features that will go live after these tests. The features (like the new Tribunal) has Reform Cards, where they send the banned players the exact chat logs that got them banned to begin with; so, I don't expect we'll need to be manually transparent after the features are finished in development.

You were banned for excessive verbal abuse in matches. If you have a Player Support ticket already, they'll address it with you privately. However, hopefully you understand why you got banned and are aware of the things you say in games.
