If you see people who are WAY out of line in the way they speak and behave, please report them after the game.

Please do not call out players on the forums.

Does this sticky hold any relevance then??

Also I'd love to see what "toxic" reports I've done. You'll find no racism or blatant threats to report in my chat history. In all my two years playing LoL I've never said to anyone "I'm reporting you unless you ****" or "LOL REPORTED NOOB" , not even to a 100% troll.

Riot should have warned us about this new rule.

I've probably been reported in a good amount of games because of it. I don't think I've full out raged in any games but I'd like to know how many games I've been reported in and how the community thinks of the game and my responses.
We generally understand that players will have outbursts here and there; for example, a frustrating day at work compounded with a frustrating game in League combined with a player screaming at you all game. However, we take these into account in systems like the Tribunal.

From 1-100 (with 100 being players who would be banned today, or banned by Tribunal), you are currently a 1. I think players fail to realize how dramatically off the norm these banned players are.

OMG the people that got banned for no good reason in the past are reporting people without a good reason?

Yet another flaw in the Tribunal popping in to say, HI!.

Good riddance.

except most people call themselves out on the forums inviting lyte or pend to shut them down... its been proven over and over again to be really freakin stupid... and yet they still do it.

How is that provoking a player?! That is stating the TRUTH of what is happening! I have to mute players OFTEN!!!! If I don't mute them then you better believe there will be further argument!

So, one toxic behavior is PROVOKING a player, by telling them that they are muted... gotcha.

What would happen if you removed the tribuna?


Just curious. This is the first game I have seen people able to "threaten to report". To me, threatening to report almost sounds like "I'm telling!" coming from a toddler

Tell me how off the norm I am then. It's not my fault you guys nerfed Kat and Kat couldn't sustain my 1600. So I dropped to 1400 where the trolls live. Tell me how I'm supposed to just deal with that. It's not normal, I'm normally fine at 1600 where people can play the game and nobody rages all taht much.
