Negative attitudes and how they ruin the game

When I first played League of Legends, it was of course a new experience. I didn't have a clue about how different champions worked, or counter items, or where to place wards, etc. Now I have learned a lot more about the game over the course of several weeks, and enjoy the game thoroughly. Its impact as what I would consider a blooming, or new, game genre is a fresh experience that I don't normally encounter. Since I have always enjoyed games that require a substantial amount of team effort to win, the game-play suited me perfectly. I've never really been the lone wolf type.

But despite all these wonderful aspects of League, the experience that would otherwise be enjoyable is often ruined by negative players on your team. If you are like me and can't always play a 5v5 premade, then you know what I'm talking about when you get in the queue and see two, sometimes three, players auto lock an AD carry. That right there is a self-centered act in regard to the team. It's essentially saying: I'm going to be the champion I want to play and do not care if it hinders the team. I understand there is a gravitation to those champions because they have the capability to dish out monstrous damage late game, but that's why certain players gravitate to them; they want to get all the kills. That is just self-centered, inconsiderate behavior that does not belong in a team based game.

However, they are just as important as any other role that needs to be filled. But, to auto lock it and refuse to communicate with the rest of the team is just selfish and inconsiderate of the team which you are a part of. You don't need three AD carries on a team. Games are not won single-handedly by an AD carry, unless the opposing team is outright garbage. It takes all the necessary roles in order to win.

The problem is, in random teammate games, too often people do not care or maybe even notice that the team is becoming unbalanced. By this I mean too much AD or too much AP along with an assortment of other problems, such as no tank or no support. It's like people want to win the match, but think they can do it by themselves. Or everyone can just pull their own lane and magically overcome the base at the end. This is not how games are won. I've seen where a team has lost all three lanes against a mostly AD team, but by end game when all the gold is adding up, they will make a huge comeback. All it takes sometimes is winning one 5v5 team fight in mid lane and you can push all the way to their inhibitor before they can even respawn.

Now, what really burns me is when players refuse to communicate and/or insist on blaming the entire team for their death or loss of the match, when the team composition was three AD carries and no AP. How can anyone expect to win against a team that is at least somewhat balanced when you have no CC? Unfortunately, I have not unlocked or learned any AP champions yet, and the only one I could afford is Ryze. I actually am considering getting him, just so I can hope to win when I get in the que and see two players auto lock an AD carry.

The negative attitude these players have is extremely distasteful and a blatant failure to uphold the Summoner's Code. These types of players should just learn to accept defeat, because you are not always the better team, and move on in hopes of winning the next match. Blaming defeat and the entire reason for losing on one single player, or the rest of the team, when you failed to check or didn't care if there were two AD carries already is preposterous. If you are losing, just gracefully lose and be sportsmanlike about it. There is no need to rage and tell the rest of the team they suck, as if you are the only skilled player on the team.

I have grown sick and tired of the negative attitude of some players in League and I never fail to report them. These people don't belong in the game. They need to be removed, and I'm going to do everything in my power to remove them. The Summoner's Code was established for a reason. Riot wanted to keep the game pure of rude and inconsiderate players, and they constituted The Tribunal for this purpose. It should be the duty of every Summoner to report negative players that ruin the experience for everyone else.

Thanks for reading.

Well if you report them, and I report them, and we both go do tribunal right now, then that's one less ******* in the game. Off to do my civic duty. ಠ_ಠ

The game is free it will attract alot of unsavory characters because there is little penalty and it's completely anonymous. I've played a wide variety of games but this game tops it when it comes to overall crappy in game community. Most of the time I just ignore people but I will listen to those who are trying to communicate team strategies or need help. I report these type of people very frequently, I wish the punishment was harsher like banning them and then limiting how much they can type in game until they improve their behavior or ultimately get banned again.

I completely agree but you must remember: Whatever your're doing, whether is be going to the mall, playing a game of pick-up basket ball, playing any online video game or even taking your dog for a walk, you'll always come across uncooperative, rude peoples. What makes you a good person is that you either ignore, help or politely work with them. They will never realize it, but to others, you'll be the better person and you'll earn respect in your community. In this game, the best thing to do would be either to mute them or kindly talk to them, and when the game is over simply report them.

It may seem like this game consists mainly of these negative players, but really, there are not many of them. They just stick out in the bunch of polite, well mannered people. If you take a look at the in-game chat, you'll notice these people take up a good 75%+ of the chat, and the text from the positive, cooperative people is hidden in their. The negative players have nothing better to do and gain pleasure off your disappointment. Ignore them, promote your team to do so, and let the poorly behaved players feel their isolation. Nothing worse than feeding the beast.

I think the penalty for these players need to be higher, and the rewards for the good players also need to be higher. Good job riot on the 450 bonus IP. Keep it up

I play this game for fun. I'll either play ad carry or ap carry.

I do not play support or tank.

When I'm playing I'm playing what I want to play, I will not waste 45 minutes playing champions I dont like. It would ruin the game for me.

I let my team decide on wether I pick graves/vayne/tf/malzahar. Thats it.

DEAL WITH IT.

Sometimes it's really hard to have a positive attitude in this game. Almost every single player I play with are a-holes, incessant name calling and smack talking are rampant in this game and no one really cares about the summoner's code. It's very rare, VERY rare to make a new friend in this game and find someone that is actually friendly and helpful.

Most commonly used phrase/greeting I see in this game? NOOOOB

Then play premades, I play premades 95% of the time and there is almost NO trash talking going on (at least on our part) and ALOT less trash talking on the enemy team mainly because the fact that you are playing a premade normal game, means that you are getting matched up against a premade.

Solo Queue is trash anyways, not only is it annoying to have that insta lock Tryndamere on your team, but it is also annoying when people trash talk and play their own game, instead of playing together.
