After waking up this morning, I decided to play a ranked game. Once I joined a game, I get second pick. I say I want to play adc, and the first and third pick choose mid and top, respectively. Soon after, the last pick on our team says, "mid top or adc". After the first three picks on our team get our roles, he starts complaining in chat and spamming "gg" over and over again.
Once its his turn to pick, he picks heimer with revive smite and says "top heimer", obviously trolling. As the countdown reaches zero, I decide to just leave the queue. Now, I have to wait 30 more minutes to join a game, simply because someone else on my team decided to troll because he didnt get what he wanted.
I was faced with a decision to play a game that is a sure loss and lose elo for this player on my team, or I can leave the queue before the games starts. Not only do I have to wait 30 minutes to play another game, but this player that decided to troll gets away scot-free.
I feel that its not fair to the innocent players that have to receive negative consequences for others' toxic actions. One possible solution could be giving the team a "vote kick" option in the lobby. I feel that this would punish these toxic players for trolling.
Or, at the very least, give us the ability to report players before the game begins. Now that I had already left the game, there is no way for me to report this player for what he has done.
