Sorry, I do not have sympathy for someone who claims that they tried to adjust their behavior but failed. This isn't like when you accidentally blurt out an OH F*** in front of your sweet old great-grandmother. You're typing these things into the chat. You have to know that that is not accidental, involuntary, or somehow out of your control. Claiming that you can't not act that way when provoked removes any kind of credibility you would otherwise have.
When you say that the Tribunal isn't working, I think what you really mean is that the Tribunal is turning League into something you really don't want it to be. It is successfully weeding out people with your personality type, and it is becoming a better place for the rest of us to have fun.
"""Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm 22, deliver Chinese food while going to college, am in a VERY healthy 1+ year relationship, have played LoL for probably 2 years now as my first moba style game, have vast gaming experience, have never gotten into trouble with the police, have made 2 enemies in my lifetime, which were a set of best friends and the 1 guy didn't like me because his sister was crushing on me (so it is understandable in my personal opinion), and consider myself a very easy going, mellow, soft-spoken individual. People have told me on multiple occasions that I have a very peaceful and easy going demeanor. I have also been permanently banned from league of legends on 3 accounts and am well on my way to 2 more.""
who gives a ****t whether you sell chinese food or sell jewels.
I don't think this post is outrageous. I think the OP is just a young man with his own opinions and there's nothing wrong with having his own opinions and believing something. I think this post can encourage a healthy discussion. But I will take a slightly different viewpoint, not to be a contrarian, but because I think it needs to be highlighted.
I would however, like to focus my post on this:
Woo, good answer Billy.
In my world of pickup ball, people definitely dont' treat each other like in LoL. One can say Riot really just wants their game environment to be similar to your typical bball court.
In fact, I think that's how I am going to go into my cases from now on with. Would this stand on the bball court?
Its not a crime to get upset, its a crime to abuse people. I get upset all the time but I don't resort to cursing or slurs or anything of the sort. No one should be subjected to that for any reason. We've all had bad games and we've all been the subject of other people's ire before. It's when you take it too far is when you get banned. Learn to voice your frustration constructively and it won't be a problem.
That is a very intelligent and well written post. At any rate you are wrong, your mentality is wrong, and your analogy of lol to golf seems more like a straw man than an actual analogy. First of all this mentality of threatening to report as an act of vengence is absolutely toxic, so your argument that you are not a toxic player failed the moment you mentioned it. The idea that because there is a mute function , verbal abuse does not exist goes directly against the summoners code. The code addresses this exact argument.
I don't doubt that in the real world you are an intelligent, compassionate, and good man, but are you in the game as well? I've played this game since a couple months after release. I've played thousands of games, many ranked, many normal, many AI. I have never even been warned. Sure I've been threatened to be reported hundreds of times, no doubt been reported hundreds of time, but I simply ignore it. I am always respectful to the players, regardless of their performance. If last pick I try and fill the role, but also let my team know if it is my weakest. If I am having an awful game, like that 0/14 twitch game not to long ago, I apologize. They threaten to report and I don't spaz out, I just say ok, do what you have to, but I am doing my best. I am sorry, this Cait is just wrecking me, not sure what I can do.I don't view it as a sign of my weakness to apologize or admit when I am bested, I feel it is a strength and common courtesy for costing a team a win. I'm sorry man but the tribunal is fine, it's likely your behavior that needs to change. Treat people as you would in real life and you'll be fine.
