If your mouse is dying in the middle of a game, you are ruining other players experiences. My advice would be to take measures to prevent such things from happening. It's not too much to ask. It's not just your time, but also the time of four other people on your team.

I don't like people being jerks in game, but I certainly don't like people standing around and feeding either.

Yeah, I guess you should stop playing. After all, what is there to this games than the interaction with other players right? In all seriousness, people are jerks because deep down most people are jerks. It's quite human, the merits of society ban out most of that kind of behavior but on the webz those inhibitions don't excist.

Your problem stems from caring too much in the wrong way. Ignore and move on is the only way to deal with jerks, however, being a girl I understand that's not easy for you. Women just have that corrective behavior that stems from being mothers.

Normally i would agree with you - but a dishonor system could be abused by trolls and haters
therefore u should think about another solution ^^

I am glad that Riot introduced the honor system. It seemed to me a way to encourage people to behave more civilized toward other players; however, I feel like a dishonor system should have be implemented right alongside that.

So many players are just plain mean. It seems like it gets worse all the time. Heaven forbid that you have a bad match, or that your mouse battery dies and you end up getting killed. People will curse you out, wish you dead, and generally piss on your head.

I try to be diplomatic, but with the attitudes of these people, that is nearly impossible. I usually get responses like "I don't need to be nice to you because you're worthless and fat." I understand that this type of internet trolling exists, but I didn't think it ran so rampant. It's not even rage, it's just plain meanness (I'm not sure if that's an actual word, but you know what I mean).

These poor personalities in players have very negatively affected my gameplay. It's bad for morale, not only for the individual, but for the team.

It's hard sometimes to just let such insulting words go, and perhaps I am too sensitive (yes, I am a female, after all - and no, I won't gb2k, or make you a sandwich). I try to be friendly to everybody, and I've helped many new players. I don't rage at people for making mistakes, and I don't tell them I hope they get cancer (yes, I have actually seen someone say that before).

Maybe I should just stop playing.

Of course, this wouldn't be the internet if this post doesn't end up getting replies telling me to go kill myself or some other such trolling, nasty response - I do expect a few, but I am a hoping that I will get some genuine responses as well.

What is the point of all that negativity? It definitely makes the game less enjoyable.

What do you guys think?
You are obviously a very intelligent, sensitive girl and I think that you really hit it on the head.

I want to note I knew you were a girl - not because of anything other than the fact that you seemed to understand something about the quality of players in this game on a deeper level than most males can.

I think you're totally right about the prevalence of meanness on the Internet and in particular this game, and I really think it would be good if everyone checked themselves periodically to make sure they wouldn't say anything over the Internet that they wouldn't in person.

Agreed. It sounds good on paper, but falls apart in reality.

Nothing you can do, really, but ignore. I've tried pleasing with people like this to consider someone else's feelings, but it's a waste of time.

It's good to know that some girls play this game lol.

Just ignore those jerks and report them after. Once they get permanent banned it's their own fault . And if it gets to the point of pointless raging then mute. Don't try to rage at him since it's pointless to argue with a troll
