I recently destroyed a devs team by the name of Shurelia at the time "RiotReimu" and as i do in most games, taunted the majority of the game...esspecially after getting threats of a suspension! The game went on, we won...and that was that!

The dev Shurelia continued to promise she was going to ban my account on the following tuesday, i thought nothing of it as the game was friendly mockery with the worst thing being said "How does it feel to suck a game you developed...p.s remove soraka"

All in good fun.

The following day she had her "real" team come and skrim us in a match to decide who was better...needless to say playing some of the top ranked EOL players we got stomped...thats an understatement...DESTROYED! That should have been enough to quelch the issue, but no i log on today to find i cannot access my account and checked my email which read my account is banned until 2050....TWENTY FIFTY! Ha.

If my situation was soooooo terrrible, why not suspend the account for 72 hours, some kind of slap on the wrist...a perma ban for an active/donating/veteran player is ridiculous.


Please spare me the hassle of leveling up with ignorant level 1's its a tough world out there.


As far as Dev's go...no one can really know if you are really a GAME DESIGNER...and people impersonate all the time..."Reported this, reported that."

Please reconsider...im sure any veteran would agree that such a substatial BAN rather than suspension is completely over the top.

p.s we want a re-match scrub.




EDIT: On a side note, not that this applies to me...but there is also a profanity filter built into the system. Use it.

Perhaps in the future "MATURE" servers should be looked into.
From my understanding you dropped the C word at her.. You NEVER call a girl that. Along with over the top taunting and cursing at her. If that's not begging to be banned then I don't know what is.. I guess lesson learned?

I know this is one-sided, but still, there is an ignore feature for a reason.

What bothers me about the OP is that he neither expresses remorse for his behavior, nor does he say he'll adjust it in the future.

You (by your own admission) had several warnings to modify your behavior, and chose not to.

The "report a player" system is exactly why HoN will succeed competitively over LoL. No one wants to be babysat and have to give out warm fuzzies all the time. You don't get kicked out of any sport for trash talking unless you're in a church league.
Then why are you even here?

Personally, I am not interested in playing that kind of game (verbal harassment), and from the looks of your suspension, Riot agrees with me. (And from the looks of the other posts in this thread, other players agree with me too).

I'm all for free speech but there are some things that really are better left unsaid.

So you got threatened to be banned for being a jerk, continued to be a jerk, got banned, and now want unbanned? Am i getting this right? Am i in the twilight zone?

May i suggest reading THIS, admittedly flaming/taunting/antagonizing someone in game is not appropriate, and as just I'm sure Shurelia asked multiple times in game for you to stop which is where your comment

Quote:

Also, if someone has Riot in front of their name they are:

A) Riot staff

B) About to get banned.

May i suggest not being rude to anyone in game, openly joking you can say things like *joking* at the end of a comment, but it seems that it was quite a bit more extensive than that to get a permanent ban.
