Here is the first sentence of a complaint which generally features a legitimate inconvenience which troubles many people. The following sentence is an insult that is almost always directed at: Riot, Pendragon, a popular player, or champion (y). What comes next is an explanation of why the author is upset at a mechanic/champion/bug (x) and what s/he may do if 'x' is not fixed or changed; the option is always one of the following: quit, play HoN, or play DotA 2 when released. However, the author is most likely in queue for another game while posting their grievances.


The next section includes an example of x happening, occasionally a picture is included.

^ example of a picture ^


A brief and incoherent explanation of the picture will follow, generally leaving out key details, usually a human error (the original poster's error) as to how the poster got into this situation. Immediately they will add in another example via text that did not happen in the game in order to strengthen their argument. This section normally concludes with a double edged question at 'y' and has one or more insults in it.

The last section is concise, usually just one sentence that attempts to pander towards the community in order to get them to agree with the authors complaints of 'x' and/or 'y'. Several down-votes always proceed after the thread is posted on the forums and the first post is most likely to be "QQ noob".

To do this correctly you need a photo of a game result screen, saved at a resolution where we cant make out any text, then a big vague complaint about 'bad teammates' and matchmaking. Just a pro tip from your uncle Zileas...
