All LoL players are hardcore straight up cop-killers, all death threats made should be taken very seriously and punished severely.

Read the quote, the title made me think the same thing. I figured he was refer to people threatening to kill themselves. No, he is actually talking about someone wish that the OP was dead.

If you feel genuinely threatened you should contact law enforcement, and we will always cooperate with them.

Thats good and all, but most people dont feel threatened, but its still unpleasant and there should be a way to deal with harsher toxic players. I have a suggestion if you'd care to hear it.

If you don't feel threatened, just report them or even send a support ticket and it gets dealt with. What about this deserves more attention if you know it's not a serious threat? I mean, people who actually do this are probably the biggest ragers in the game so I don't think it would be a stretch to say they will get banned very soon.

Police: "911, how can we help you?"

Summoner: "um yah, someone just threatened me in LoL"

Police: "Sir, 911 isn't meant for jokes, and no I don't find threats funny"

Summoner: "No, a person playing a video game called lol threatened me noob! JFC L2listen"

Police: "Sir, do you know where this person lives or do they know where you live?"

Summoner: "... what? No but that's besides the point! Fkn noobs do your job!"
