This is why Kades is one of the amazing Rioters.

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 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 courtesy. 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.

The power shouldn't be in our hands... Too many people can't handle power...

Get Dunked is just a pretty humerous phrase. I would never in a hundred years punish that, or feel the urge to punish the person. Some people need to get just the smallest sense of humour.

Will always punish players who exhibit terrible sportsmanship and attitudes, like saying "get dunked" or something like that.

Anyone who doesn't think that riot caters to carebears is delusional, regardless of what this guy says.

Absorb and deflect any negative criticism as usual, riot.
I've never seen any of their staff admit to a system being less than perfect or not "working as intended." Yet things still get changed, but why change perfection?

Wish this company would practice what they preach and show a little humility instead of getting stand-offish at every imagined slight when someone tries to give constructive criticism.

Nailed it.


Players like florrie are the reason this game has such a poor community. Maybe the people that really need to act more like adults are the ones that can't handle any amount of celebration. Even football players celebrate. Celebration is a natural reaction to doing well. Ridiculous.

Maybe you guys should look into preventing all the internet add ons that auto punish every case. The tribunal has been getting worked around ever since the removal of the verification on every single case to where its completely automated at this point.

Ever since the Tribunal was introduced after Vayne patch it's been a huge controversy.
It will continue to be until people just stop playing your game, Riot.
