The hillbilly redneck comment aside, he does put up a valid point. It IS harder for ALL players if three are language barriers. Honestly we do need a Latin server. The counter argument may be decrease of NA community but it WILL help overall.

The world's dominant languages are English, Chinese (mandarin and centonese), German, Spanish and Russian. As such I believe that, based on the region, there need to be different servers. Beside the fact that upon release of a new champ there ALLWAYS are server issues and improvements need to be made.

2 sides to say here (btw im from the south in the US, so I see a TON of racism). First the main reason I see a ton of racism is immature kids, trolls, etc etc. The other side I see is also when in champ select everyone speaks english, get in game, one person starts speaking in some other language, and when asked to speak english ignores them and just keeps going on. ends up making communicating hard. I think both of those really contribute to the majority of the racism we see as after a few matches these ppl just get worse.

This game isnt nearly as bad as sc: broodwar.

There used to be games with h title "3 v 3 No N******"

Also if you've ever looked at comments on YouTube there are racists comments everywhere.

That's the Internet, report them and know that none of these kids would actually say that to someone's face and if they did they'd get their asses kicked.

They're a lot of immature people on league of legends, what i usually do is just simply hit the tab button and the mute button. problem solved for days and days and days.

1. Mexican, Brazilian and Argentinian are NOT races. They are nationalities. So this would be nationalist or something I guess? But not racist.
2. Why not play on the BR server?
3. It's not just LOL players... have you seen the REST of the internet yet?

Those being said, yes it's a problem. Chatblock, Report, Playhard, move on.

This is very annoying, because these days I was banned until June 26 for the reason might have answered the insults. I can not just hold it all quiet. Because I did not give any reason for them to do so, and when I said that they would be reported for a negative attitude, they replied with other offenses, "Fck you, give me some tacos!", "I'm American, I will not be banned.", "Report him for huehue" and things like that.

Seriously, why these guys think are better than us, Brazilians, just for us to be BRAZILIAN? I have two eyes, two hands and have a head to think, then i am like everyone else. Racism should be a hard reason to be banned, not answer the criticisms of the time and be reported by trolls only for be Brazilian, like i did.

Well, I'm already tired of it and I apologize for my English.

Lets back up to the beginning...

FIRST.... You typed something that they did not understand as they did not Speak your language but at the same time It seems to me that your on the North American Servers who's Language is English for the majority of players. This Unknown comment, however harmless was taken as Extremely OFFENSIVE by them.

SECOND.... League already has Harassment issues, that is why It put the honor system in place because of things like what you received.

THIRD..... They replied as you should have EXPECTED them to. Like Idiots.

Fourth.... Racism is alive and well AROUND THE WORLD... Not just the sole dominion of America. Sorry but America dose not have sole ownership of Idiocy around the world.

Last.... YOUR English is just fine... stop apologizing for it and go have fun. There are Idots in every corner of this world and you will never be able to escape them, shut them up, nor be rid of them.... learn to recognize and ignore....

Though I admit it is easier said then done.

I'm sorry if this is coming out late... BUT WE'RE ALL RACIST IN THIS GAME.

That sounds bad, I'll clarify, I get called a stupid american alot, and i'm not afraid to shoot offenses right back at that player. I will translate what you say in your language and will fire back an appropriate response. People are racist on this game, NOT JUST AMERICANS. You shouldn't go crying about it, but show your better than them by BEING the bigger person. Just you posting here about the problems says your better than them, just report them and play the game, you can ignore those players, show them up and show them that just cause you are Brazilian or any other NATIONALITY, that you are still a good player and a well-tempered one at that.

Could you please stop?" You also have the option to simply ignore them, and/or report them for their actions.

Debating whether or not this falls under one -ism umbrella or another could be an interesting discussion- as long as it stays polite and constructive. As far as the OP's concern, however, abuse is abuse, and that's what we have the Tribunal for.

Does this mean that I can go to the BR server with 900 ping, speak english, and become offended when people on my team are upset that they have no way of communicating with me?
