People sometimes ask us what regulations govern the League of Legends community. While we do have a discrete list of rules, there's a lot more to being a positive force in the community than adhering to the legal ease set down in our Terms of Service. We believe that there are things that separate a great player from one who is mostly concerned with not violating the TOS. And you may be surprised to find out that we believe what makes a player great doesn't have anything to do with your summoner level, win/loss ratio, or Elo rating. What makes a great player is the willingness to take responsibility for ensuring that he and his fellow players have a good time.

And so, in response to this request for leadership, we here at Riot Games have set down a few guidelines for becoming one of these great players. May I present, The Summoner's Code! Henceforth, these nine patterns of behavior shall be the creed that governs all League of Legends players as you continue to fight the good fight out there on the Field of Justice:


So, while you're out vying for supremacy with your fellow Runeterrans, remember to always keep to the Code!

I just wanted to say Byronic(There's no way YOU didn't write this! It screams your name all over the page), this is really awesome.

There are many of these rules I realize that I might say I follow, while I actually don't and just rage/yell at people. I'm going to try applying this code in every of my games. Last game I congratulated my enemies when they won a teamfight or killed me, that made the entire experience less frustrating and I could just look back at it and laugh.

Thanks Byro

If only rage didn't blind me from some of these things sometimes, haha.

Is this a peer enforced code or will there be covert Riot monitoring?

Are there any non-RP PVP realms?
