I don't know what it is about this game that attracts every ******bag on the internet, but the in-game community is literally the most appalling I've ever seen in a video game. It seems like everyone's objective in the game is just to make everyone (including their teammates) as angry as possible. Normally I can put up with it, but it has been exceptionally bad lately and I can only take so much ******baggery before it makes me act like a ****** as well. My only solution to this is to just ignore everyone in the game immediately.

Yes kids, I am talking to you who cry because someone makes one mistake. Yes I am talking to you who troll your team because someone who picks before you took the roll you want to play and call them "****ing noob". Yes I am talking to you who do nothing but cry and yell at someone for losing their lane while not bothering to help them in any way.

If you're someone that does things like this, please do everyone a favor: uninstall the game and stop ruining it for everyone else. Thanks.

Someone is being a hypocrite, your ranting/crying/whining about this on the forum? There is something you can do to prevent them sending messages to you, it's called mute ... Works 100 percent when my team or enemy team trash talks or complain/whines/ and cursing =] I don't see any of their annoying messages, it's very effective! No Super effective!

Stupid comment is stupid ^
As for the community OP, yes, it is ****house. Can't stand it. I insta-mute everyone in the game now and try to just play 5's with friends whenever I can.

You're better off participating in the tribunal if you want to cut back on the toxic community. Posts on a forum like this one are very unlikely to lead to the results you desire.

As much as I can hate the toxicity of some of the community - Even in FPS like Counterstrike it was as bad if not worse. The difference here tends to be the fact that in a game like this, you're far more dependent on team performance.

Unfortunately, the community comes with any game that is competitive.
Also, parts of the community tend to be a little delusional, and think they are better then they actually are. This makes it so they fly off the handle when people aren't playing up to their expectations.

I don't agree with this. I played LoL for about a year when it launched, and I remember things being a lot worse then. It wasn't unusual for there to be a couple trolls, or groups of trolls, on every team. Players would make troll accounts and start games as groups of two or three just to ruin the experience of new players.

I am just coming back to LoL after a year of not playing at all, and I can easily see an improvement in the in-game community. People are much less likely to insult one another, and helpful comments are far more common. I'm sure the honour system, which gamifies good behavior, and the tribunal, which crowdsources and speeds up penalties for bad behavior,is responsible for this shift.

Of course, you still meet some toxic players. I find the best way to deal with them is by not rising to their bait. If they are rude, you make a point of being polite by including "please" and "thank you" in your messages. Even if the toxic player doesn't change their behavior, I find that being polite helps keep your other three teammates focused on the game and playing to win. However, if they do change their behavior, reward them for it with compliments like "good gank," or whatever. Positive reinforcement is a far superior teaching strategy than negative reinforcement.

ignorance is bliss huh???? just cuz u mute them it doesnt keep u from ever seeing them again. I see people ive muted multiple times ON MY TEAM no less.... muteing will get them to stop talking not stop trolling. ineffective post downvoted.

on another note the original post was so true this community is starting to suck. most of you who play this are evil people.
