The "Referral System"

Since LoL is a F2P game it attracts alot of people that don't care and add nothing to the positive side of the community. Sure report is a great feature but riot cant sift through all the reports and 50% of them are complete garbage.

So what can we do to fix this? Someone suggested a referral system and this is a great idea.
When you are done playing a game you have to "refer" at least 1 player, and there should be check boxes, also you have the option to (but are not forced to like you are with referral and are only allowed to negative feedback 1 player for each team) negative feedback a player, this feedback option will have a check list, you can check the boxes of the following:
*Feeding
*intentional AFK
*Bad Sportsmanship
*and im sure a few others


These two systems will create a profile for you. The only way to move up in ranks or leagues would be to have a positive profile. You will accumulate points a according to referrals with negative feedback subtracted. You gain points in all the check box area's.

There are then 4 leagues, Beginner(this league is for anyone and everyone, mostly people who just started to play competitively, and people that have either de-ranked or not played in a LONG time)Bronze, Silver and Gold. You start in Bronze league, then through the referral program you can advance into higher leagues.

Also you can be demoted leagues, things such as being reported for harassment, distrustion, or AFKing reports can get u completely demoted to where u have to start over. Other things that can get u demoted are constant bad referrals.

Also- When you advance into a new league you should get a 5win IP boost or something of the sort so you are rewarded for your good behavior and performance.

Main Points:
-Its a system that will promote good sportsmanship and also team work and truly penalize those who are ruining the community.
-Will give players and the community the option to control whos advancing in leagues instead of a math formula that is forever flawed.
-Will take the pressure off of Riot having to referee games with reports and put it in the hands of the community.
-Will allow players with consistent good performance to be rewarded.


(Please up vote this if you agree with the system or have ideas to add or see possible abuses and flaws and i will update this post on a reg basis if allot of people agree with it until we get word from Riot)

People could lie and give negative feedback to a good player.

I'm confused. "Beginner League" implies lack of skill, not lack of a good reputation. You are talking about a separate way of grouping users other than skill, right? While I want a way to avoid mean teammates, I also trust matchmaking's skill-matching. There should be a way to have both.

Also, you seem to exclude Normal gamers. Normal gamers have problems with poor sportsmanship, too, and obviously just want to have fun.

I can see this becoming MORE of a problem, because a lot of people will just downvote a random person or someone they don't like. I see this system becoming a new tool for the trolls.

Well we need something because any system will be broken in some ways when the game isnt on a pure 1v1 status.

Yes there can be abuses in the system, but with the ability to only allow 1 negative feedback per team and thats optional (keep in mind people are lazy and prolly wont randomly negative someone unless they have a reason too) and positive feedback is mandatory so if your anything but terrible youll end up with more positve then negative and hence be moved up.

The current match making system is broken, im sure if they let us see the real statistics there is a HUGE pool at low elo and extreemly small just above ELO hell all the way to the top. This would spread it out alot more and give people a better chance to play at there level.

Of course there would still be hidden ELO system that would take into account your rank and league, but the other part (your profile) will be visable to all players and then people can also make better decisions when creating teams in the chat rooms.

This idea also prevents a TON of trolling, at least all the garbage that goes on in chat.
Honestly if it continues like this they should remove chat option and just have a drop down box like they do for internet checkers where u can choose what to say but only pre loaded sentences.
