LoL, RIOT cannot remove LoLking.

It provides them with plenty of income I assure you.

The issue is being able to look people up and show their record in a negative manner.

I made an example in my above post of a good way LoLking can be used (in reference to hashing out team comp, positions, and champ selection).

Generally though it's not used like that.

I agree with everything in the original post. Lolking is toxic in team selection in it current form. There should be reports for lobby trolls as these players rarely see the endgame report as their motivation is just to entice other players to dodge.

Yes, but now people want to remove it like Dota2 just did to their "lolking".

See here

Votes are coming in, and it's about an even split.

But I do have to say that LOLking is a great and useful tool that could do good and has done well for me in the past (people have let me take a position because they saw my record with a champ).

In it's current form, yes it's toxic, but there is such a simple fix that jumping to "oh we need to flat out remove LoLking" is quite a jump from "Hide summoner names in the pre-game lobby".

I'll agree with hiding summoner names in lobby.

Clearly the vast majority of people who voted would like to see some changes.

What is everyone else thinking??

I would love to see some more suggestions or discussion regarding potential changes.

Hurry and let your thoughts be known.

Cmon, plenty of votes with no thoughts or comments.

RIOT doesn't care about votes people they care about imput.

I for one am sick of this after 2+ years. Something needs to change and the only way that will happen is if we work together and express ourselves.

Even if you vote that the system works fine, please explain why you think so!

Umm.. nothing?

They make money off RP, selling skins and champions.. not improving pregame.

So they are making new skins and new champions instead.

i made a thread about replacing names in lobby with Summoner X, the thread didn't go really far, though i fully support this idea
