Is using video gaming as a form of catharsis a bad idea?

For the unfamiliar, catharsis is a form of psychotherapy that encourages or permits the discharge of pent-up, socially unacceptable affects. For instance, in this case, you'd be playing shooter games to let out your pent-up anger or frustration.

Is using League for such a thing considered illegal?

it definitely can't be considered illegal, it may however lead to you getting banned/more angry

I don't think match based games will work well for that criteria. As no matter what, one side will always end up as the looser.

People play video games because they are a form entertainment.

Nothing more.
