[ HMMM ] Pregame Vote Kick - Necessary due to dodge penalties in Season 3 - POLL
Yegg has now told us something quite interesting...
Due to this high penalty of dodging.... I must make this an official poll now for all Leaguers who are serious about ranked, be it their main or an alt account.
PLEASE GIVE US VOTE KICK PREGAME, TO GET RID OF TROLLS ! ! !
This will allow us to not have to dodge, lower the dodge rate that you say are too high right now, and stop the senseless drama. Yes this will mean trolls will usually wait until in game to troll, but that it will still dramaticly decrease the amount of trolling and dodging that takes place right now.
Lets shoot for 250,000 total for a forced change :) In game poll would break 2 million Yes

KEY POSTS THUS FAR THAT EXPLAIN
Punishment is too severe without a method of defending from pregame trolls.
Even a cancel game vote would work.... vote kick would be best though to punish trolls and put them on the time wait instead of the legit players.
Riot removed the ELO penalty for season 2
Riot added a removal from series and loss of points/ranking and possible tier loss for season 3, along with the prexisting dodge timer penalty.
The harmful punishment is back and worse than ever, rewarding the trolls.
Thats how I look at it as well....
We are triple punished...
- Time wait
- Removed from our series to raise in Ranking Tier
- Loss of points
Trolls on the other hand...
- Trolled you into quitting
- Get instant requeue
- Troll more people into dodging and losing ranking
Vote Kick Change Possibility
10 times being kicked could send chat log to Tribunal or Riot for review of pregame chat logs... and when kicked you wait out 5 minutes allowing the legit players a head start in requeue to avoid you.
Players are currently being punished for avoiding trolls at a rate that has Riot for a loss of words.... so Riot raised the punishment for dodging instead of giving a defense against the problem ... the trolls
If kicked you have a 5 minute wait while the others get in a game..... after 10 times being kicked, pregame logs are sent to riot for review....this has many options of vote... not just punish / pardon... but maybe a bubble system to punish the real troll from chat which would then flag that tribunal report on the person bubbled and if they recieve 10 or so,, then that bubbled person's logs are sent to tribunal..
many options on the table
Is the current system acceptable?
You get trolled and are stuck with that person for 20-70 minutes or you are reported...
You dodge and have a time wait PLUS season 3 you are punished with lose of position in ranked series and loss of ranking points.
Why punish the innocent when the trolls are the problem and win? Something is better than nothing and less abuse will be done than is done currently
Or do you like trolls wasteing your 20-70 minutes at a time?
Very good idea as a second option ... kick when you want the person punished.... cancel when the team just isnt working out while limiting the chances daily to avoid abuse
This can be addressed in Test Server Testing...
The benefits of the ability are more than being trolled into dodging and being severly punished under the season 3 punishment standards.
Well.. It would give the players the option to kick trolls... making room for non trolls and thus speeding up the Q process.... This is becasue good players dodge trolls, and trolls continue to harass....if we kick and penalize the trolls then the good players remain.
My method speeds up the Q by removing the trolls.
While this would be nice, we should concentrate on one thing at a time.
The punishment for a dodge is:
- Getting too extreme
- Punishing those who are playing legit
- Rewarding trolling by letting the trolls continue to make people dodge and troll games.
And if they threaten to afk, feed or leave... I only ask my teamates to try...even when I dislike their choice in champs...
Being punished as severly as Riot plans to in Season 3 is unacceptable when a dodge to avoid such a player is necessary for progression in ranked.
Without it, we are forced to spend the next 20-70 minutes with that person or we get sent to tribunal ... it can be very painful and is senseless to force us to submit to it
This maybe true....
But due to the Red response on it, we need it now without question
One way to avoid this is to make the kicks not time punish the person kicked... they instead just requeue....
This lets players kick the trolls and continue on instead of having to dodge and being penalized like the current system...
This will lesson the punishment and dodging while allowing legits to play untrolled
Currently we are wrongfully punished for dodging a troll to save ELO... Current = wrongful and punishes the good while allowing the trolls to troll until they get in a game to troll more
Guess a time penalty must be in place then to prevent that, but at least the trolls are less likely to troll with a threat of being kicked.
Limits on the availability to vote will need to be set to once per person per queue, and only after all champs are locked in...this makes use of that extra time after the last champ is locked....maybe extend that time to 60 seconds.
Well that could work except that keeps the troll being rewarded...
What makes more sense is a minimum 5 minute waiting period after you are kicked so that the other 4 can get back in without you this time around.
That gives a minimal punishment while making the kick worth it.
Trolls have to learn that its wrong to troll....and legits need a chance to play without being trolled and losing ranking for dodging a troll
Possible, and yes people have pointed out some methods...
The benefits outweigh the possible abuses.
Riot raised the punishment in season 3 for dodging becasue they think that people are dodging to much by statistics....
Riot forgot that the dodging is due to trolls causing legit players to dodge for a time penalty rather than a loss of Ranking.
Something else that the Vote kick could be used for that friends just facebooked me on is that once you are kicked 10 times, your pregame chats all goto tribunal making a report..
Tribunal can then vote on your pregame behaivor as a troll...
Thanks mate..... we need a shield from trolls :)
Even a cancel team vote would be something with such a harsh punishment on the line
bump...this is definitely needed with the new system
(Please dont forget to state your thoughts on the poll and your reason for yes or no)
i made a very similar post AGES ago. About how if a toxic player is on your team prior to playing a match, for players to have the option to vote to kick that player an restart your que. Result that player would be given a 30 min timer for his vote kick. for this to work, 3/4 other players would have to vote to kick him, so in solo que there would be no real way to abuse this system. this would also work for randomizes and AFKers
Even not taking into account the numerous good reasons not to implement a "kick option", this would completely defeat the purpose of the exact point you quoted from Yegg... The whole point of the harsh dodge pentalty is because of the rampant dodging and TIME IT TAKES FOR PEOPLE TO GO THROUGH Qs. This idea would literally just exaggerate the problem with dodgers AND kicks...
I agree here. Especially because Yegg talked about how too many people are dodging now; but there's still nothing being done about blatant trolls in champion select. Naturally you could just play through, call the trolls on their bluffs and actually force them to play the losing game so they drop to where they belong, but why should they be able to take you with them? There are legitimate reasons for players to dodge, and it feels like this and many other things Riot doesn't do "because they could be exploited" are only looking at how bad players could abuse them instead of how much it would help genuine normal players deal with bad players.
I'm all for any system that will rid champ select of trolls without having to dodge.
This will be abused with lolking.net
And arguments over selection of champions.
Sweet, now I will be absolutely forced to give my best role(s) to other people in the games where it matters most. Fun times.
