: "get reformed or get out" settle down silver 4. lmfao. If you think this is going to help anything, it's just going to create vindictive players and more accounts. This literally won't change anything, and I can guarantee a lot of players will be making accounts to grief your ass more. You talk about how it's toxic to talk trash, but then look at you on the forums, you are one of the most hypocritical players I have ever seen. You are toxic to others you deem "toxic" rather than taking that almighty high road you pretend to drive on. The glory days of toxic behavior will be around forever. Your report will be worth less and less with the automated system, and you're just going to get more toxic players in your games and cry on the forums until rito does another ban wave. Your vindictive little posts filled with baby rage at the fact you're hardstuck is sad. **Get good, or get out.** Peace. Side note; constantly complaining won't help you climb. I climbed from b5 to p4 this season. Don't blame shit on smurfs, you're bad at the game, but feel like you're higher elo because you do well some games, the more you whine the less you climb.
That's all you can attack. my rank. nothing else. i maybe silver 4, i maybe hard stuck. but at least i'll do it with no punishments on my account.
: imagine being this sensitive
the fact you had reviewed my board history and make remarks like this. shows who the sensitive one really is. Have a good day.

: well.. I think if I play games with chat ban, I can't react with any offensive comments. So, that's gonna be a good chance to learn how to ignore toxic players and offensive comments. If I blamed them with no reasons, it's pretty fair to get 14 bans. But this time they started first, and they induced to swear them. Also, it's my first time, so I think just chat ban is pretty enough for me and that will be helpful to prevent next time happening.
You expected a chat ban, and got a 14 day instead. that speaks volumes. it says you weren't concerned with the chat ban.. because your behaviour wouldn't change and you could still cause damage with the chat ban active regardless. with a 14 day ban. you have time to think and reflect. you have no control over the situation and you are denied the privilege of interacting with others, its also riots way of saying. we've reviewed your entire history. you one of the worst of the toxic players. Last warning. Improve or we don't want your business.
: The unexpected results of having Draft Pick
While i haven't played it yet, about 80% of my friends are saying its fantastic. they wait a little bit longer but the quality is there and its worth the wait.
: New Player Here
OCE has some very nice players, it also has some very mean players. the 3 step rule to remember. 1. If they are are mean, rude, homophobic or otherwise toxic, Mute their char. 2. if they start spamming pings, mute those as well. 3. When the game ends, spend 15 seconds ticking the boxes of their behaviour IE: Negative attitude, intentional feeding etc.. write a brief description at the bottom and move on. Best of luck mate
: I have not once ever seen a chat restriction given
I dont think you realise just how many people have had chat restrictions. its an option that clearly wasn't working, RIOT OCE are just stepping up the level of severity so people will learn. and while some are too scared to agree openly. quietly they are cheering and loving it. OCE behaviour curve has always been very skewed, we've been the the spoiled brat wild child who got away with alot because we were new. The glory days of toxic behaviour are coming to an end. ** Get reformed or get out.**
: I Got Hacked (Perma Banned) Please HELP
all the excuses from the 14 day bans * The Sea cable makes me AFK and DC * Someone stole my account, it wasnt a boost or account sharing i swear * Riot didnt give me a chat restriction, they jumped over a fair punishment. * KYS is actually banter, lighten up i was just joking. * I was only abusive one game i swear it just never ends with the excuses.
Rlmgusea (OCE)
: This punishment is quite excessive for me, at least you should give me chat ban first ...
>his punishment is quite excessive for me, at least you should give me chat ban first ... Why tho? i personally like the fact 14 day bans are coming out. No body is afraid of chat bans. yet they certainly tuck their tail between their legs and come to the boards to complain when they get 14 day banned. Harsher punishments like this might actually change the way OCE behaves, and hopfully toxic players learn and improve from it.
: Right I don't know anything about you, but I do know that you are willing to call someone toxic for saying GGEZ multiple times in an online game, I merely pointed out the fact that it is ironic that a bad player would deem someone toxic over saying GGEZ multiple times, I bet you're also the same type of player to deem constructive criticism on how to play the game as toxic or just not even acknowledge it when someone tries to tell you how to play the game, despite being Bronze for 3 seasons in a row. WP SIR smh school holidays
Guess again, all assumption except >I don't know anything about you only thing in the entire paragraph that is truth. you dont know me, you have never played with me. so what if i've been bronze for 3 seasons in a row. i'm a bad player in your eyes.. so what? in my 3 bronze seasons, i have never been banned, suspended or chat restricted. i have the icons for most of the honours, and i occasionaly gift supports who play very well. **Don't need to be plat or diamond to know what toxic behaviour is.**
: You do realise, how dumb it is to receive a 14 day ban for typing ggez a few times, and talking shit in a video game, I mean what you quoted, there's literally zero offensive language and you would have to have the sensitivity of a baby to find that offensive, or toxic, people like YOU are what's wrong with the community, reporting over any little thing, GOD FORBID SOMEONE TALK SHIT ON AN ONLINE GAME, it's almost as if you can press a tiny microphone on the scoreboard to mute players on your team or on the other team :S
that's not all he got banned for, it was just a highlight. The inting sol **( going to assume its you )** its bad play in general, you can win a game and not behave like that. its easy to talk tuff on a board, in a game. but face to face is very different. you or the person who received the ban wouldn't treat people the way you do in person. why do it online?
: Fruitsalad, you are being more of a dick than what you quoted from his chatlog as being "toxic", oh right it's the hard stuck silver 3 that's been bronze for 3 seasons in a row, that can't take any constructive criticism and literally any language directed at him or another player should be deemed as toxic and constitute a ban
and you know me how exactly, oh that's right. you don't. you looked at my op.gg and that's it. wp sir. Smh

there is always a point to ranked, the idea is to improve. but no, you wont get ranked rewards. https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/115011781068-2017-Ranked-Rewards-Eligibility any punishments after 22/08/17 result in forfeit of borders, wards and skins. also you will not receive honour rewards either.
Zabuzà (OCE)
: The reason i was suggesting chat bans, is because i know multiple people who have had a history with flaming, saying nastier stuff then i have and only gotten chat bans after multiple of these instances. I just feel that after only one slip up, a 14 day ban is unjustified as i have had no warning or anything, plus straight to the 4 day ban, stripped of my honour, free rewards, and the end of year rewards i have also been working hard for this past season. Plus with this one slip up from last night, the person i raged at was provoking me throughout the whole game, even though i was trying my hardest and this really got to me on an emotional level. Tbh I'm completely shocked and don't know what else to say, So does this mean there's no point in my ranking as i will not be recieving anything from it? And when i return I guess I'll have to utilise /mute all Anyway, thanks for the help, Hope i will be able to continue in the next 14 days without responding to people provoking me and expressing my anger in other ways, Thanks
all im reading is bullshit. you got caught doing something wrong on your account. Accept it. its called accountability. Next time respect your account, the game and the people who play it.

>How do suppose I do that?

: _[Speaking purely for myself, as Riot and others have different views on the matter.]_ Ill start by saying that racism absolutely disgusts me, and ill be the first to deck someone causing another person real harm! But there is a big difference between 'racism' _(genuine **hate** for another person because of their skin colour)_, and juveniles dicking around on the internet. Lee Sin was probably like 12 years old, didn't even understand the connotations of what he was saying, he probably listens to rap where people say the N word over and over and over again, and watches crude teenage comedies that consist of poo humour and racial jokes. Im willing to bet he doesn't dress up in white and walk around the forrest at night with a burning cross! Sure it's not nice to listen to, and in a perfect world people shouldn't say things like that. But it only affects you if you let it offend you. If you just think _"Yea ok, its just some kid fucking around, who cares."_ then no one is hurt. But if you think "Oh you fucking swine! how dare you call people names!" and start hyperventilating, people do get hurt! but the only person actually being hurt, is you. Now seeming you have no control over other people's behaviour, you only have two options: 1. Take it personally. Ruin your game. 2. Don't take it personally. Enjoy your game. People who are easily offended seem to find a hell of a lot more 'racism' and 'sexism' in the world than people who aren't. Now I'm no mathematician, but I don't think that's a coincidence. In all my years of league, I have yet to see one person that I thought was **genuinely** racist or homophobic. I've seen plenty of less-than-appropriate jokes, and lots of people saying something nasty in a moment of frustration. But I've never had the impression that once the game has ended, a player has gone and started throwing darts at a picture of a black person's face on the wall. More likely they've gone and thrown their mouse across the room because they failed flash and died and you didn't, and they care a hell of a lot more about that than whatever colour skin your wife happens to have. ___________ Lee's behaviour is well within the limits of being defined as Toxic, and I'm sure he will inevitably relieve a punishment for it! but unless you think that he genuinely abhors the mere sight of a black person, I think blowing it up into a 'racism' charge is over the top. There is a lot of toxic behaviour in the world, and it is impossible to change every single person on the planet's behaviour to align with your morals. You can weed a lot of it out with systems like the one Riot has in place, but there will ALWAYS be some negative behaviour that seeps though. And you can either choose to be offended by that or not. Your wife hasn't changed, she's still the same person she was before some 12 year old called her names on an online game. So why is it a problem? Offence isn't given, it's taken. And your best defence against it in life is a thick skin. ___________ I know all this sound a bit harsh, and I don't mean to be insensitive. But me saying: _"Oh no thats terrible, I hope they get banned!"_ doesn't actually help anyone here. It doesn't help them get banned, and it doesn't help you enjoy the game next time someone says the N word. Because the real problem here isn't the fact that they didn't get banned for saying the N word, the problem is, you're not enjoying the game when people do. And that is more important to me than if some random kid gets banned. So I'm offering my solution to try and make your games more enjoyable. Sometimes a slap in the face is more helpful than a pat on the back, even if it's not what you want at the time. So this is my slap. :P Im not saying racism isn't a problem when it happens! Im saying that a lot of the time, it isn't actually 'racism'. Anyway, this is just my personal view on the subject, and views are always subjective. :P Whatever the case may be, I hope you enjoy future games more than this one. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

: RANKED DEMOTION PROCESS SHOULD BE LOOKED @@
your negitive winrate overall for the season 47% and 44% winrate in the last 20 ranked games you've played. the system is placing you where you need to be. if you have a positive winrate at 0LP you tend to get 1-2 matches at 0LP to give you a chance to recover. I think the ranked system is okay in this regard. if i may offer a solid piece of advice? Dont focus on your LP or where you are at present. it just creates a sense of urgency when you are playing lets say you are on 0/LP and you've noted this.. then you don't get your role. instead you are placed in a role you are not that strong in, the negative seed is placed. and when something goes wrong in the game. that's what will tilt you. focus on improving, and keep a positive mindset. i started this season exactly where you are, i'm now s3 and hoping to get to gold "fingers crossed" (if i dont get i'm still happy how i went this season) **I wish you the best of luck** {{sticker:vayne-pose}}
: If your friend, of higher skill level offered to duo w/ you would you say no? As someone who likes to spend time with my friends, league of legends is that gateway to do so - In the past i've duo'd with my friends of lower skill level, not to boost them, not to make them happy, but just to have fun and climbing is inevitable over the course of 20+ games. Reverse the situation too, if you're a higher skill level and you have a friend of lower tier but really enjoy spending time with him/her are you going to limit yourself to normal games? (which myself and many others find boring/pointless af) It is the end of season, yes & there will be a lot of boosters etc. But you had all season to climb? Last season i was mid plat, being diamond the previous season I knew I could climb there but was too lazy & played off role for the majority of the season. The last week of the season I sat down, played as many games as I could, went back to playing my main role (Marksman) and climbed all the way to plat 1 promos, 2 wins. I missed out on diamond by 1 win for the season. - Point is boosters aren't an issue end of season because it feels 50/50 whether they're on your team or not. Learn from it and not leave climbing till the end of season. ^^

Have some consideration for others who are trying to reach their goals in the game.** PS I've sent you a friend request to provide players name. i cannot post other peoples names on the board.
: Show the match history of this player & i'll believe your story, but on the topic of your opinion. There's often a good chance you'll have a smurf on your team if you're solo queuing & you don't complain when you get carried so why complain when you lose games to smurfs. I myself have 3 accounts, D5 P3~ and G4~ the ~ is around that elo i dont keep track bc i play for fun on those, not to brag or to say i'm one of those smurfs/boosters. Just want to bring to your attention there are few mechanically talented players in silver/gold who aren't smurfs. Just genuinely silver. I lose many games on my Gold account because of it, I wouldn't accuse them of boosting or smurfing - I blame myself for losing lane and in most cases I can pinpoint where i've made my mistake & what I should or should not have done. - In saying this my point is the same to you, focus on becoming better, focus on what YOU are doing wrong and what these alleged smurfs/boosters are doing right. All you can do is learn. Be happy it isn't a game like CS:GO where you get insanely punished by a smurf to the point you can't do anything or learn anything because it's just reaction speeds/aiming moreso than game sense.. As you said you're silver - I have a **bold** assumption majority of smurfs are infact platinum elo. If you think you have a chance of getting gold before the season end then why are you complaining about smurfs? low plat-gold-silver are much the same just as D5-mid plat is the same. Focus on how the game works & what you can do to shutdown a smurf or outcarry them. :)
cannot show his/her name.. that's naming and shaming and is against board rules. I do agree with everything you say here, i try very hard to focus on what i'm doing wrong and how i can improve on that. i strongly believe its half the reason i have climbed so well over the season. in the ADC position no less. i'm always happy to take the loss on the chin, this isn't an issue. the issue i feel atm is right now the system feels very skewed. Why is that a bad thing? its end of season, people are getting help because they are either not good enough to climb, too lazy or feel entitled to rewards they don't deserve, if i don't make gold i'll be sad but it wont be the end of the world, i'll just try again next season and if anything, i'll know i can achieve it. My concern is why is account sharing, duo boosting and paid boosting the accepted norm? I don't believe the ladder is this bad all the time, but at the moment being the end of season i feel this call is justified.

: S1 stuggles
you have a negative win-rate for the season. you just had a 4 win streak and still have more loses than wins. when you reverse this you'll lose less LP when you lose, and gain more when you win. right now the system believes you belong in S1 for a while, based on your current stats.
: Thanks a bunch Fruitsalad, I'm sure I can speak for everyone involved in saying we appreciate the positive vibes, it was a pleasure to be able to help in the making of such a piece _(MVP goes to Highland Cow, the brain behind the Video)_. Shoutcasting is such a new and rarely explored beast that always looks super simple on the surface, right? Talk over a video game and just see what happens, go along on the journey and try and keep pace. There's always so much more to things like this that meets the eye! Just like players can be challenger in LoL, the champion doesn't change, the items don't change but how the players prepare and use it does! We're always around to be asked questions if you or anyone else have any and thanks again for the kind words.

: Supports
Supports can carry games. Every time i get a good one i will generally kiss their feet with praise. its the most underrated role in OCE and the people who master it are 9/10 the nicest people you will meet. i think there is quite abit of variety atm in the botlane support side. One could say its going the way of melee. it tends to cycle play styles quite alot.
: Perma Banned. Unfair? Or Reasonable?
> First Account: I was genuinely toxic > 2nd Account: this was a friends account stopped reading at this point. Your a fine example of whats wrong with OCE. in both instances you show lack of respect for the content you are using. Level a new account yourself. dont speak with anyone unless its game related. if they are neg. just mute. Goodluck and stop using accounts that dont belong to you.

: Just mucked around on vegas, end result :)
Storyline, Player smurfs using a very low bronze account and posts his incredible outplays. /sarcasm By all means, continue to create content. but not that shit. play at your real level. or follow your favourite OPL player and review, record his replays. Don't ruin the ladder.
: Assuming you have no rank, no skins, no champions, no wards, no icons, no exclusive content, no friends list, no mastery points, no hextech loot. Then you don't lose anything by making a new account. But for example: When you've spent $1000 on skins, have all the Project loading borders and the original Championship Riven and Pax TF, youre gold, have all the champions, lvl 7 on all your mains, and have almost enough gemstones for Hextech annie. Then making a new account isn't so appealing.
Who cares if they have spent money, if you are destructive to the community you can suffer the consequences of your actions. That's called accountability. Let's say it for what it is. The toxic player is also a customer. and this is a business. Why ban someone who is a paying customer.. cause we might lose them. It's sad truth. You only have to watch and talk to people in OCE content creators videos and social circles to see people are getting sick of OCE.

: ranked solo q
I've played 100% solo The issues I have are: Higher tier issues affecting my games. even tho I'm in bronze..... Higher ranked players either A. Account sharing or B. straight up boosting by using the account directly or DUO boosting. the other reason I feel players who are higher come to bronze is simply to have a "relaxing game" What does bronze offer higher players? basically a draft pick with no repercussions if they win or lose. stress-free due to our atmosphere, No toxic yelling or whatever. you aren't called out on your shit. EGO issues. also To me, it feels like the ladder gets compressed sometimes... challenger goes into diamond. so diamond goes into plat, plat goes into gold.. etc. etc... this could be due to server size but if it is, I question the amount of boosting further.. is most of the high end of the ladder just show pony accounts rarely played? Why isn't this looked into..? To those saying but but.. smurfs don't harm anything. or playing a high ranked player is fine... No, it isn't. it's like asking a 5yr old white belt in karate to vs a fully grown black-belt in his/her prime... it's not going to end well and we get beaten so badly we shut down and don't analyse what we did wrong. it's very destructive to positive development

: Hi there Mr/Mrs Salad! It's not appropriate to discuss the specifics of an investigation (current or closed) so I won't go into that, however I'd like to share some of our philosophies which might help you understand why we've made the decisions we have. One of our long term strategies is to support our teams in their journey towards becoming powerhouses. I believe a strong league needs strong teams and vice versa. It's critical for the success of esports in Oceania that our teams continue to evolve; become businesses, grow fan bases, etc. Look at your favourite NRL/AFL team - they create content, they field professional teams, they have fans, they give back to the community and they operate a business. That's where we want our esports teams to get to. There is a ways to go, but we're making progress. There will be growing pains, but this is part of growth. We believe to achieve this we need to focus on three pillars: 1. Financial support 2. Mentorship + non financial support 3. Standards of operations The financial support we are offering teams this year is around double what it was last year. All 8 teams are now in gaming houses in Sydney, players earn more than last year and they compete in our studio. Studio games allow teams to create content which is appealing to brand partners who also are injecting revenues, plus it's obviously great for fans. We've also introduced a number of investor opportunities to teams, some of which have now been realised. We are also assisting teams in growth where possible as requested. We share data they can use to pitch to sponsors, provide feedback on materials they send to sponsors and give tours of our facilities to prospective partners. The third is standard of operations. As esports evolves, it requires everyone to evolve with it. Contracts, official communications and deadlines are all important. If we want to provide teams with the framework to grow, we need to expect and enforce certain operational standards. Hopefully this gives you an idea of what we've made the decision we have in this case. You're clearly passionate about the OPL which is awesome, so please, continue to support your OPL team. Cheers Riot Stupendous aka Daniel Ringland
think you should read this its pretty concerning from an outside POI http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1spn2ta Edit: It feels like what you have written here was for the very thing posted on reddit a few hours ago. Not my original post. EDIT2: touching back on the chiefs fine topic This is exactly why i think the fine is unjustified. Most orgs give or get nothing. Here we have an example of an org doing nothing for the players and giving no money. chiefs being the best org in the OPL would still find the financial burden concerning. You need to look into both the chiefs fine, and the TM Issue.

: I have fun. Perhaps the issue is not with the game, but with you?
You know what, you could be right 100% maybe I'm not meant for this game.
