Riot is not ashamed to cater to the thin-skinned.

The only way to stop this is to become more active in the tribunal and vote innocent for people who we believe are innocent.

Right, as the quote I pasted sorta explains. "Get DUNKED LOLOLO" is fine. "Eat **** and die noob" generally isnt.

Im sorta on the fence about "Pooped in ya mouf!" but I rarely see that as only nunu's would do something of that nature

This.

Look, the tribunal was designed to give the power back to the players. You guys determine what is collectively 'ok'. The thread I think you're referring to is here:

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...84727#31084727

If you'll notice, I never said that saying "stop feeding" is a bannable offense.

I did imply that it was completely ineffective and that, specifically, it was "the petulant whining of someone who is so self-involved that he'd prefer to vent his rage at his teammates rather than endure his tribulations stoically, help his team overcome them, and then carry them to victory."


Because telling a teammate to simply 'stop feeding' isn't productive. It doesn't help you accomplish your goal- which I assume is to try and win the game. It actually makes that significantly harder because it turns the focus of the game from your team trying to win to you whining, throwing a tantrum, and putting your teammates further on tilt because you can't deal with the setback of someone who is having a rough game due to any number of factors- including him simply not being as skilled as you are or the chance that his random opponent happens to be significantly more skilled than either of you.

Is "get dunked" bannable? If I came across that case for review and that was the only thing the guy said, I think I'd vote to pardon that case. But that's just me. Tribunal was created with the goal of putting that power back into your hands.

If you look at how this thread is being received (similar to it's carbon copy), it appears (to me at least) that the community disagrees with you. That they don't play a game to get harassed. That if they're given a choice when they hop online to unwind and play a game, they'd rather not deal with people who can't handle frustrations like an adult. That's not me telling you that, that's their votes telling you that. Similarly, we ask that people treat each other with at least a base amount of respect. While it's easy for us to spot and expedite some extreme fringe cases, that 'base' is set by the community through the tribunals votes. That's not us making that choice, that's us trying to put the power back into the hands of the community.

Maybe the issue isn't really that Riot caters to 'carebears'...? Maybe- just maybe- the issue we're talking about here involves you hanging out with a mirror and having some quiet self-reflection.

Yes you are here Kades! I have been wanting to ask you a very important and revelant quest- 1v1 me scrub.
