erk155 (OCE)
: unreasonable ban
The ban bots are incompetent.
: Holy crap, who put the instant feedback system onto 'Hitler mode'?
The bans being handed out right now are a complete joke. The bigger joke is how riot are handling support tickets on unreasonable bans.
: First let's preface this by, these are all words on a screen, and if they are really doing gaming for those reasons, they should pick a different game, and get some professional help. But this is also OCE, and generally speaking, i would say a higher portion of the population have a higher tolerance level for shit like this. Sure i get it, some people would actually kill themselves, but that isn't on the person that tells them to do that, because in reality, they are just putting words into their computer, the person killing themselves should have gone and got professional help, and the people in their life should have also noticed that they needed said help. Is kys a bad thing to say? yes But if your at the point of reading what some dumbass on the internet says and taking it as something you should do... seriously, go get some professional help.

Me either.
: TL;DR: Games don't make people into violent sociopaths, just like telling someone to kys isn't the reason that they actually end up doing it, People just need to fix their perceptions and focus on why these people are having issues, and trying to help them before this shit occurs.

: My mistake then. The system can be very janky at times, although if I read some of the other board messages I'd have known by now. Unfortunate as it is, the chat system seems to be catered to the special snowflakes who get triggered at you breathing. The only thing you can do is avoid the system. That's going to be tough for some. I can only say good luck to them. A helpful quote for some to remember: If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all.

Riot agreed i wasn't being racist but suspension not lifted. Full disclosure i also said neck yourself in that game but when queried the reason given for suspension was racism. They just dont give a fuck right now.
: Your report's system is disgusting, Riot
It is just taking the piss. I am taking an extended break rn . If they made an option to disable chat and abandoned BE id come back in a flash.
: Wait what is Faker ACTUALLY giving up League ?
A lot of people are quitting league right now.
Dount (OCE)

BE is a business strategy to fleece the people most committed to the game. Oce is dying and they are doing what they can to remain profitable. Sadly they are killing the game in the process.

: What happens to an account if you quit?
I've done the same. The suspensions are just taking the piss and loot boxes to farm those most committed to the game are a turkey slap in the face. The game has gone to pizzle since q3 2017 (calendar year not financial year). Bummer that usernames expire. I assume the account is still recoverable though?

Dark Aria (OCE)
: Game is 50% bots? Nice one Riot .. *logs out*
League is dying. Aram is the canary in the coal mine. Tencent are killing it (both the game and in the rejigged irl $ farming)
: Why did I get banned and not the abusers?
The system is fucked. Riot: give me a mute all button or an option to disable chat.
: I don't believe that you can get banned for saying one bad thing in ONLY one game. If that were the case there would be more banned accounts than playing ones. In other words, you would have to be insulting others or saying bad things a lot, over many games. Those people running mid (maybe) only did it one game, therefore they don't get punished, or maybe not as severely. Be the change you want to see. Fight the toxicity, not your team mates. Fight the urge to fight on their playing field. Report them, continue on. The only people you should be fighting in a League of Legends game, is your enemy. Eventually, with this method, you will have helped to remove many others that do not care for other's experience. Either by ban, or by reform. Keep doing your best, you'll get there.

Then you hold an incorrect belief. I used to think like you until i said "neck yourself " and went straight to 14 day suspension with no escalation through tiers. The system is broken right now. You only have to look at the boards to know that the system is fucked.
: Bots ruin the aram games
League is dying. And riot's strategies are quickening the death.
: "Choke on a fat one" is pretty aggressive, I wouldn't call that basic shit talking, especially in the context of the rest of the chat. I highly doubt the OPs intention was banter when he told his team that he was angry at and had been toxic to all game to "choke on a fat one".

I highly doubt the OPs intention was banter when he told his team that he was angry at and had been toxic to all game to "choke on a fat one". Then i must have thicker skin than you. Choke on a fat one = no swearing, no low blows, no racism, no familial involvement, no rap e threats, no homophobia and no brags about sexual exploits with my female parent. Its a basic, standard insult in an online game.

I hate to use the word snowflake when conservatives seem to have hijacked the term as some sort of rally cry against people calling them morons, but its a bit snowflakey.

: What riot has done to their game, and the fact that it leads to lower sales.
The lower population base and the jacking up of loot box and pay to play mechanisms follows a model: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/7igijd/i_was_a_game_designer_at_a_freetoplay_game/ > I'd say that, on average, pay-to-win tendencies increase as a game's popularity goes down over time. When the game first starts out, balance and preserving the player ecosystem is everything. > As the game gets older, people start moving onto the next big thing, but a core sticks around. There's less of them, but they tend to spend more, on average. > As the game reaches it's final stage (sometimes called Farm Stage), a very small team is in charge of keeping the game on life support. They may love the game, but their development resources are tiny. The only thing they can do is fiddle with numbers. If you can't get your remaining players excited with new art, levels, or mechanics, what do you turn to?

: The sad thing is, the way to take a stand would to be just to stop paying for anything in league, but the fact of the matter is, that some whales will always be paying for the game no matter how shit it is becoming for the player. Past that best option is to stop playing and hope that the smaller player base ruins the game to the point where Riot admit they fucked up and try and fix the game and the systems in the game.

: Doesn't this stuff build up though? Like, yeah you are being pretty toxic either way... like telling someone to "choke on a fat one" is pretty toxic haha, and I can see that you lost numerous games in a row... did you flame people in those games? When I got my 14-day ban i was having an extremely tilting day and on my last thing i was barely toxic bar 2 possible things. I couldnt believe it. But then I thought about the previous 3 games where i was extremely toxic as well. Honestly, you're better off to mute everyone, even if you don't think muting everyone will help you climb in gold. Just my 2 cents.

: Its ok to afk/int feed/troll but its not okay to wanna win?
The bans are out of control at the moment. I think the trouble is that trolls rely on people reporting whereas swear words get insta reported by an automated system. So yeah, swearing is more heavily policed than trolling.

: I have noticed the change recently too, I believe it's too crackdown on homophobic speech/racism, but it seems as though the net has been cast too wide in a few cases. But it shouldn't change much about my explanation. The OP himself agrees that when he was banned before he thought_"yeah that's reasonable i was pretty toxic there"_. So it seems it was a fair ruling in that case. BTW, do you know what the incorrect trigger was by any chance, or what the mistake was? It might come in handy if something similar happens again, I can let them know that the system is not working properly with that phrase/term.

It might come in handy if something similar happens again, I can let them know that the system is not working properly with that phrase/term. I wanted to clarify whether what an opponent had said was deliberate racism or an accidental mistype. They said "g o o k work" and I said "did you mean g o o k or good". Was the only use of the word from me in that game. For full disclosure I said neck yourself once, I believe it might have been the same game. But the racist term is what riot brought up in my support ticket so I am assuming that is what triggered the suspension.

: I'll do my best to explain why you were banned, there's a lot to cover though, so you might want to read it in parts :D ___* The question isn't _"was my behaviour in just this specific game deserving of a permanent ban?"_ as you seem to imply it is. You may disagree but that's not how permabans are issued. Instead the question is more like;_ "am I frequently insulting others in chat and not changing my behaviour?"_, if so then you get permabanned. The escalation path is: > **First Offense**: 10 Game Chat Restriction > **Second Offense**: 25 Game Chat Restriction > **Third Offense**: Two Week Suspension > **Fourth Offense**: Permanent Suspension You said that you have been _"banned before"_, which according to the escalation path tells me you're received at least 3 warnings before this permaban and failed to reform after every warning. **This is why you received a permaban for this game.** The system gave you multiple chances and you failed to reform. ___* You also said that this game wasn't even worthy of a chat restriction, but I definitely disagree and I think others will too. Most of the chat is passive aggressive and you insult your team on multiple occasions. * You harass your team for being in silver multiple times with _"poor kid cant get out of silver"_, _"i love how ur in silver and you talk so much shit"_ * You insult your entire team by saying _"xd bad team"_ and then insult another team mate by saying they have _"done literally nothing all game"_ * You then on multiple occasions you say Xin is _"crying"_, spending _"all game blaming others"_, and spending _"more time flaming than helping"_. Whether this is true or not, you're clearly just saying this to escalate the situation and insult him. Did you tell other players to kill themselves? No, but the bar is a bit higher than that in League. And to continuously display this kind of behaviour is unacceptable. ___* You also seem to imply that because Xin and Leona were breaking the rules, that makes you breaking the rules ok. This is not how it works. People insulting others does not give you the right to insult other people as well. You are judged for your actions only, and in this case your actions were not acceptable.   I hope that explains things. As with 90% of cases I see on the boards, all of this could have been completely avoided if you had muted and just focused on winning the game. If you do choose to come back to League I **strongly** recommend you take this advice. And remember we'll always be on here to help if you want some tips on reforming :)

I used to think it did but I copped a 14 day suspension with no escalation for a reason which riot agreed was an incorrect trigger. Sorry dude but the suspension / banning system is rotten at the moment, and riot are being kinda dicks about legitimate concerns.

Not saying that this is necessarily the case with 4523, but it is definitely something which is going on generally - NA boards are also full of this sort of query.
: Riot: Please turn down match found sound.
https://az616578.vo.msecnd.net/files/2016/11/18/6361504272431267551118779524_see.jpeg FALSE The loud match found sound means you can step away from the PC while waiting for the game to be found but still hear it in time to return to the room and press accept.

: If i could just understand where the ban came from.. was me asking for them to be reported for saying "g o o k" it ?

System triggered for me when I queried whether a person on the other team meant to say g o o k or whether it was a mistype (they said "g o o k work"). Told riot. They agreed that I wasn't using the word to offend. Suspension upheld. The system is super sensitive these days and player support dont really care about context.

Like you can leave them on all day and they can play all day. Have a look at their match history to confim this. It's not just one game at a time, its a 48 hr session or longer. Well thats sad, go to work or school and run the bot program....sad people in this world.

I had mates who used WoW bots for the same reason - had 3 bots running concurrently just farming 24/7 then he'd launder the money in game. It was ridiculous but he used to give us some OP items because he had so much gold. And with the increased grind riot want in lieu of $, I believe this will encourage bots.

This will likely impact the number of new sign ups. If new sign ups are < people leaving then the population will diminish and bots will increase. Bots are there to rank up accounts the cheap way to sell them, not sure what that has to do with player decline. Although on the other side of the coin players are getting annoyed at so many bots so they are not playing as much.

If the server population declines to say 70,000 people, then the chance of getting a bot is 4.1%. I should have really said the relative chance of getting a bot in your game will increase. Apologies. Hope I have clarified sufficiently.

: I've made as many posts on this topic as most (but not as much as some, Jason looking your way ;) ). I could try and add to the discussion, but I'd only be repeating myself. Vote with your wallet, if you are unhappy with the current state of LoL, don't buy or spend any RP. If they see a loss rather than profit from the changes, they will re-evaluate the system.
