What does "unskilled player" report really do?

Seriously, does that really do something? Is there any official note about what does this feature do?

Riot hasn't commented about it that I've seen, except to clarify that it was NOT included in the ban wave for report abuse last month.

Personally I think it's a placebo button. Does the same thing as the crosswalk button at a big city intersection or the door close button on an elevator. At most, Riot collects data from it to gauge how well the matchmaking is working.

It's an obvious placebo button to cut down on rage reporting. If you want to push someone into the Tribunal faster where they might be punished for calling someone a noob in some other game then choose "Intentionally Feeding."

There was an official statement regarding this several months ago. Can't find it and don't remember the exact wording, but it functions as a way to never be queued with that player again.

That is its only function and the reported player won't ever turn up in the Tribunal for this selection either.

That's not true. Lyte has said as recently as yesterday that they've carefully avoided ways for players to avoid who they get queued with in the future (particularly for ranked purposes).

Ah, my apologies then, I haven't been on the forums in months. But I'm sure a Rioter has mentioned in the past that it's used to avoid future queues. It definitely wasn't Lyte nor Pendragon... can't remember. But if Lyte has mentioned it that recently, then yeah, not true anymore

*edit: also it was just for Normal games, he/she didn't mention Ranked queues.*

Doesn't it lower the player's ELO?

I actually heard that was the way it worked. If a player accumulates enough of them, it will lower their normal (not-ranked) ELO slightly. Not sure if that's accurate or not though.

^ That's what I've heard too.
