Toxic Environment for Newbies
 
Like the title says, this game is not newbie friendly. Recently, I got one of my close friends to start playing, so I decided to play with him. First game I played with him was pvp, because I obviously wasn't thinking. I'm pretty sure 4 out of 5 of the enemy team were smurfs, and a similar number on our team as well. They were not friendly smurfs. They expected everyone at a low level to be a smurf, and were pretty much *******s to everyone who wasn't doing good.

I decided pvp just wasn't a good idea, so I brought my friend to bots. However, the other players were also very harsh towards his gameplay. These people were extremely competitive. I thought that bots was for practicing and learning, but these guys took it just as seriously as ranked games!

I think that we need some way to actually seperate newbies and smurfs. My friend's first two games were terrible because of other players. I feel bad for every other person who also tries to pick up League. Our community seems terrible.

everyone who is smurfing have had their main accounts banned or they simply suck to play on equal terms

My friend who brought me to this game played a bunch of customs with me with just him and I alone. Until I understood the game enough, I didn't play with anyone else.

I swear, every time someone says "toxic" I cringe.
