Yesterday I played a normal match with Corkin and I lost
But when I checked the match history section in my profile instead of Defeat next to the match with Corki I had Loss Forgiven!
At a previous lost match it still had Defeat but only for that specific one had this.
Can enyone explain me what this means?

Hi! This means that, during the time that game took place, we forgave all losses due to server issues that were negatively impacting players. This is something we recently started doing to improve the experience of our player base when "bad stuff happens," such as serious lag or whatnot.

You will not be informed in advance as to when we activate this mode, but will see such "forgiven losses" in your record. Hope this helps!


This is the answer we have. Apparently when the server gets all weird,they forgive losses that may have been influenced by their issues.

Afaik, that's what happens when Riot presses "The Button". This happens during server instability, so that players don't receive penalties for their technical issues if they disconnect and receive a leave etc.

Have you ever been in a game where everyone was disconnected every 5 seconds? If you haven't then be quiet. Lose forgiveness is a way of saying "the servers were horribly on the fritz and the game shouldn't have even taken place."

"No", ill take a second of my time to educate you.

Theory and logic are different, logically it doesnt affect people all the same, people who have a higher latency and are further away from the server will suffer more from these issues.


You gotta add logic to your theories lol, someone has to make theories or they don't exist. Logic, like math, exists without anyone having to think about it because its not something that someone formulates. Just because there is no one to perceive it doesn't mean it doesn't exist, thats why i compared logic to math even tou its debate-able, in case you respond saying that is bull****.

When the server is experiencing trouble some people lag others dont, that is why they made loss forgiven, and even if everyone lags it doesnt means everyone will lag at exactly the same moment, or that everyone is used to lag in the same way. Someone who is used to lag will take advantage of it, someone who isnt used to it will just rage and be easy prey.

Its a game, its supposed to go smoothly, so loss forgiven is a perfect way to fix the stains these issues cause to people who have a good record.

I played a game where it didn't matter how much better the other team was than me, because I was the only one out of all 10 of us who did not DC. I ended up finishing the game alone and unopposed by anybody. Do you mean to tell me that was fair and entirely their fault?
