: Team fight tactics release live
Generally Riot doesn't give specific times/dates for this kind of stuff within the "release patch", but it usually is either upon completion of patch maintenance (about 8am AEST tomorrow morning for OCE, barring any unexpected issues, as per [Service Status page](https://status.leagueoflegends.com/?en_AU#oce) .) or within a few days of the patch going live if Riot wants to sync up the release across all the servers. If TFT isn't available upon completion of the patch maintenance, there *might* be information provided at that point that states a more specific time frame, but probably the best you'll get is "within a few days" (and that's not 100% either, but is usually accurate).
Vortuka (OCE)
: TFT Patch
As per the [Service Status page](https://status.leagueoflegends.com/?en_AU#oce), patch maintenance should start around 5am AEST tomorrow morning, and is expected to take about 3 hours, meaning the server should be back up about 8am AEST tomorrow morning (barring any unexpected issues). That said, I don't believe there's any indication anywhere of when during patch 9.13 TFT will actually become available. It might be available as soon as the server is back up, or Riot might intend to sync up the release time with other servers, in which case we'll have to wait longer, possibly a couple of days or so. Might be more information regarding it's release date/time once the patch goes live, if it's not already available at that point.

Yeh, it does seem a bit like that's what happened. 12 days to deal with something like this (which should normally take about 15 minutes) is a bit ridiculous, and somewhat undermines the act itself. Riot should have been quicker to act, and there are several events during this situation that could have played out differently if they did. Sometimes we just have to accept that the collective efforts of the community can be a great way to force Riot (or whatever dev/publisher the situation may be about) to take action when they rightfully should, and ultimately I'm glad to see this resolution.

Actually, NightBlue3 has since been banned (within the last few hours, it seems), with a 14-day suspension no less. It shouldn't have taken Riot the 12 days to issue a punishment (ideally, the IFS *should* have been able to act with the usual 15 minute span, at least with a chat restriction), but NB3 now has the consequences to those actions. https://twitter.com/Nightbloo/status/1141963162360545280

: Unequal access to PBE
So to be clear, you shouldn't be getting moved back in queue, however Riot did state that there is a *visual* issue with the "time estimate" and "position in queue" stats, which may make it *seem* like that's happening. Should still retain your position in queue, but it isn't displaying that properly. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/156853827079766016/591153981959569447/unknown.png
: > TLDR Nubrac got banned for griefing consistently and repeatedly. It would have happened sooner or later, NB3 just sped up the process by pursuing the issue with Riot, which any player can do. Yet they can't ban other who do the same? Which goes back to OPs original statement, only streamers can get others banned.

It's a bit more complicated than that. You'll likely find that all the OCE volunteers agree that the systems in place for gameplay offences just aren't as good as they should be, and that's something Riot needs to address (presumably they are, but there's no info on that as far as I know, and a lot of players feel it's just worse now than when the Tribunal was available). The systems that *are* in place either take too long to act, or just don't figure it out, and in that sense it's very important for players to follow up any gameplay issues through "higher escalations" methods (such as submitting a ticket to support) to help the process along. It's fundamentally because of a flaw in Riot's systems, but players shouldn't claim it doesn't work if they don't take the effort to help it work. Even in this case with Nubrac, the system in place *just didn't get it*. The situation was misread as nothing more than a case of a player going off-meta when the situation was more complex than that, and as a result we now have a high-profile situation that is just flooding the boards and Reddit and such with misinformation and half-truths, a situation that likely could have been avoided if Riot's systems and policies were up to scratch. It's not that "*only* streamers can get players banned", it's that the systems in place are fundamentally flawed, and it takes significantly more effort to get results because of that, effort which NB3 actually took, while many other players simply wouldn't consider it because of a belief that "it wont work".

I'd rather he not take that risk, early Yi ganks suck without a tonne of setup, and most the time you just lose xp and map pressure and no benefit is gained. If I have a nasus top, I don't want to see him trying to gank my midlaner and him losing a wave, I want him to keep farming and pushing and generating pressure. Why would stacking champions exist if not to... you know... the thing they're designed to do... afk farm and stack? He might not have communicated in the best way, but he maintained an approx 50% winrate over more than 400 games with support teemo in high elo. Which indicates that at some level, it worked, and he definitely tried to win, no matter how counter intuitive, I or, or any other player thinks his strategy is, you can't deny that statistically it was viable. Also team communication isn't essential, it helps most of the time, but also some of the best games I've played, nobody has needed to ping anything, people already knew what I wanted them to do, because after all these years, you cannot deny that anyone in any decent elo will have learnt the basics of this game. I, like many others in the community do not look kindly on favoritism, and I think a discussion highlighting this to riot is very valid. We all have ways to play and you shouldn't get special privilege for being a streamer that allows you to play say offmeta jungle maokai, but a regular player is punitively banned for trying the same. I don't think I'll change your mind but I at least want to state that Riot is at very minimum morally wrong for showing elective favoritism.

No, and that's a completely ridiculous way of interpreting my statement. One of the *fundamental* aspects of "AFK farming" is the concept of being "in essence" AFK, which is *heavily* implied by it's name. Something like taking a whole match to just farm neutral monsters, for example, *is* AFK farming and *is* against the rules, because it effectively creates a 4v5 situation. The examples you've listed are generally based around *shot-term* farming designed at bring about power spikes to better contribute to the team, and *don't* fall under the category of "AFK farming". > Also team communication isn't essential And at no point have I denied that. That said, the act of ***REFUSING*** to communicate *is* punishable. As I said in my previous comment, you are not obliged to communicate in every single game, but that doesn't mean that you can blatantly refuse to communicate and leave your team in the dark. In particular, situations where a player goes heavily off-meta is the *perfect* example of this going into practice, because not communicating in such a situation is actively working against the team. Communicating your strategy and being open to feedback about it is what you *should* do. For one thing, it will provide the team with a chance to adapt to the strategy from the start (even if they don't agree with it), rather than, for example, letting them think they'll have a support in a traditionally 2v2 lane just for you to leave them in a 1v2 situation that they can't handle with their champion and/or skill. > I, like many others in the community do not look kindly on favoritism, and *I think a discussion highlighting this to riot is very valid*. We agree on that point. No one is saying that these kinds of discussions aren't valid, or that the opinions of players aren't valid, but *fundamentally* that does not *change* the established rules. Those rules still exist as they have and likely will continue to regardless of personal opinion on them. You can discuss those opinions freely, you can advocate for change based on those opinions, but simply having those opinions doesn't change the established rules, or mean they don't apply. > We all have ways to play and you shouldn't get special privilege for being a streamer that allows you to play say offmeta jungle maokai, but a regular player is punitively banned for trying the same. Then you and I must have *very* different experiences with using off-meta strategies. Personally, I've never had an issue using off-meta strategies, though I have seen many players claim the opposite. That *might* have something to do with how different players address that kind of situation, however, and fundamentally what kind of mentality those players are taking into the match with how their ideas will be perceived. Something as simple as just communicating your ideas and intentions with the team, in a positive manner, and choosing a different strategy if they're not keen on it can make all the difference in how those players respond to those ideas (both shot and long term), as opposed to simply saying nothing and doing whatever you want every time regardless of how it affects your team mates. Communicating those ideas also gives those players a better idea of how such strategies work, which may make them more comfortable with having someone use such a strategy in that match, or another match in the future. Ultimately, it seems that the main issue in how players are *generally* addressing such issues is to ignore the rules and just do whatever they want, which is punishable because of how it negatively affects hundreds of other players. My point is, it's likely that many of these players are experiencing issues not because of the "off-meta strategy" in and of itself, but how they attempt to utilise those strategies and their attitudes and behaviours in doing so. Then they get banned for abusing another player, for example, and just *assume* it's because they were playing off-meta, when that isn't the point of contention in the situation. Riot does need to take actions in a way that is as unbiased as possible, that is something I think we can all agree on, but one thing I think players need to keep in mind is that they can't use things that *aren't* punishable (such as "off-meta") as a platform for things that *are* punishable (such as griefing) and expect to get away with it, whether that's what they've intended to do or not, and they need to stop misinterpreting and misrepresenting those situations. I think one aspect of that is that many players don't have a more definitive idea of what is against the rules, and I think Riot could try to be a bit more clear on that (I believe the "reporting a player" support page used to be a lot more clear on that than it is now, which is unfortunate). Ultimately, though, Riot can only go so far to make it all work, the players have to come the rest of the way.

It's not a bannable offence. 10 hours is still a short time for a ticket when it takes Riot 4 days to respond to my reports about people who run it down. Also, NB3 made the report while in-game.

Something such as "AFK farming" is *definitely* a punishable offence, because it is something that is actively working against your team.

That 10 hours is something that occurred *beyond* the ticket, when NB3 contacted Zephyr directly. The only reason NB3 did so is because the ticket itself had *NOT* shown results for two full days. Believe it or not, but *you* also have the ability to do the same, and contact Rioters directly should you be unsatisfied with Support. In fact, if you find that Support is consistently failing cases you bring to them, I would personally recommend you pursue those cases in other ways. In saying that, you should keep in mind that very few Rioters will put up with that if you bring them *every* player you have a minor disagreement with. Try and keep that kind of escalation to the stuff that *needs* to be escalated. > Also, NB3 made the report while in-game. He typed it while playing. You know, AFKing? Yes, and he should be punished for his behaviour in-game, that was never in dispute (you can find that I said basically the same thing in my original comment). It's also important to consider that he was in a situation where he honestly felt his time was better spent submitting that report than trying to play that game for several reasons, including the fact that 2 of his team mates were already AFK, and another was actively griefing. Fundamentally, that does not make NB3's behaviour any more acceptable, but I do *understand* why he chose to take that action at that point, and if I'm being completely honest, I might have done the same thing given the same circumstances (specifically regarding the "submitting a report while still in-game" thing, not his other behaviour).

It would have happened sooner or later, NB3 just sped up the process by pursuing the issue with Riot, which any player can do. But his strat was viable and it worked. It got Irelia a lead. The guy is also highly ranked with a positive win ratio. This is proxy singed all over again. It's a stupid ban and only went through because streamers cried. Nightblue was AFK for 1 minute and 30 seconds typing his report in the fountain instead of playing. Where is his punishment? He single-handily lost that game. That was an instant ban, too. He didn't fill out a report, he contacted a staff member directly. You don't have to communicate with your team. You can legit mute everyone at the start of the game. Also, WookieeCookie has no idea of how the rules work. Anything that person posts is null and void because they are clueless. lol. No point playing nanything but meta these days, tbh. Disregard the fact that people rbeaking the meta has changed the game.
> But his strat was viable and it worked. You're missing the point. Nubrac's "strat" is not the main point of contention here, his *intention* is, and it's been made clear that his *intention* was to grief other players by using "off-meta" as a platform for such behaviour and a shield to protect himself from the consequences. It doesn't matter if the strat itself works, because it's not about the strat. > That was an instant ban, too. No, it wasn't. It took *three days* for the ban to be issued *after* the game in question. You can see the game itself [here on Nubrac's twitch channel (time-frame 4 hours 58 minutes)](https://www.twitch.tv/videos/436538419?t=04h58m15s) which occurred on the 8th of June (which you can see here on his match history: https://matchhistory.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/NA1/3062531855/41863402?tab=overview ), and you can see the moment he received the ban [here also on his twitch channel (time-frame 53 minutes)](https://www.twitch.tv/videos/438067393?t=00h53m13s) which occurred on the 12th of June. > He didn't fill out a report NightBlyue3 did, at the end of the match in question when he had 2 team mates AFK in base from all the bullshit, he used his time to submit a ticket to Support. You can see his perspective of the game on [his twitch channel here (time-frame 32 minutes)](https://www.twitch.tv/videos/436591028?t=00h32m07s). If you refer to the[ screenshot of the discord conversation between NB3 and Zephyr](https://imgur.com/a/dVw6HcF#YEwGir7) that is circulating, it becomes evident that that conversation occurred at 4am (their local time) the morning of June 12th and, as per Nubrac's twitch vids, you can see the ban wasn't applied for approximately 10 hours (around 2pm on June 12th, their local time), also evidence that it wasn't an "instant ban" as you and so many others claim. > You don't have to communicate with your team.

: ARAM selected Champion unowned and not in free-rotation
While Janna is not in *this* weeks free rotation, she is in the free rotation from 2 weeks ago, and since ARAM uses the 3 most recent free rotations (rather than *just* the current week's) it makes sense for Janna to be a possible pick.
: 9 Months and no word of Nexus Blitz
The most recent word on Nexus Blitz was from the most recent run of the mode (about 2-3 months ago), where Riot basically stated that they were no longer looking to add it to the permanent rotation (for the foreseeable future), and just bring it back occasionally during events (this is mainly due to the fact players weren't being engaged in Nexus Blitz without goals [missions] to achieve). You can read all about it here: https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-au/2019/04/dev-nexus-blitz-wrap-up/
: CAN I GET BANNED FOR TRASH TALKING MY IRL FRIEND AND SWEARING TO HIM?
It depends a lot more on the situation than anything else really. Using team/all chat does provide a bit of risk with this, though it usually depends on how far you take it and the players you are with (specifically, how inclined they are to report). You'll definitely want to avoid any zero tolerance behaviours (racism, sexism, homophobia, suicide encouragement etc.). So far as swearing goes, it's not an issue in and of itself (people can turn on the profanity filter if they don't want to see swearing), but it does become an issue when "directed" (for example "fuck you" or "fuck off" could be problematic). It probably wouldn't help if any punishments were to occur, but you could both try informing the other players in-game that you are friends and it's just being used as banter, which might make them less inclined to report (again, probably wont change the outcome of any reports). Honestly, in a situation like this, I think the best thing you could do is use some alternate method of communicating, such as private messages (which you can use in-game via "whispers"), or some kind of VoIP program. It means you can just say whatever and Riot either wont do anything (because it's a private convo) or they wont have jurisdiction (they can't police what happens in a private Discord/Teamspeak server, for example).

One of the requirements for receiving the Little Demon Tristana icon is that you had to participate in the vote for Tristana's next skin (the vote occurred about 3 months ago, I believe). If you believe you should have received the icon but didn't, you can feel free to submit a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) and see if they can help.

: Is it possible to get a permaban reverted?
The only way to get a punishment removed is if it was made in error (either a punishment shouldn't have occurred, or a lower tier punishment should have occurred). The standard appeal process is to submit a ticket to Support, which should trigger a manual review and get a response. There is an extremely low rate of false positives, however, so the chance of getting a punishment removed is negligible. If you want, you can provide details regarding the punishment on the boards (what category it fits into, any evidence provided by Riot such as chat logs or match history links, what's been said by support etc), which will allow boards users (volunteers in particular) to provide guidance on how to proceed (and the likelihood of actually getting the punishment removed). Without any of the details, however, you wont be able to get any assistance through the boards, which means your only option would be to handle the situation through Support. It's important to note that we can't actually change anything about the punishments players receive, all we can do is provide information and guidance, so your only real chance of getting the punishment removed is still Support.

: Player support Bot
Generally, Blitzcrank Bot will only deal with clear-cut cases, the things that are simple and straightforward (requesting account data is a good example). In order to get a human support agent, you should only need to respond to the ticket (requesting a human agent certainly makes it clear what you want), and you should get a human support agent who is ready to address your case.
IIIIIIIII (OCE)
: BOT ACCOUNTS?
So it sounds like this might be a compromise, in which case there's a few things you'll want to do. You'll want to submit an Account Recovery ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (use the "Recover my account" option, you'll need to be logged out to do so) to make sure that the compromise is being looked at and the account remains secure. They'll ask you a series of questions about the account to verify you're the original account user, you don't have to answer all of them, just enough to verify who you are (any information that can't be accessed through the account, Riot services, or 3rd party services will help). They will also issue a "Security Ban" on the account to make sure no other actions can be taken until it's been properly secured. You'll want to change your password ASAP, and I'd recommend changing the password of the registered email address as well. You should also run a scan using any anti-virus software you have on any computers you use regularly, just to check for anything like keyloggers that may be the cause of the compromise (personally, I'd recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free version for running manual scans, as it tends to pick up more than other anti-virus programs in my experience, but up to you). If you do find anything from those scans, you'll want to go through and secure any accounts (particularly banks, emails etc) that have been used on that computer recently. I'd also recommend checking out https://haveibeenpwned.com/ as it is a great resource for finding accounts that have been compromised. It's got a large database to check against, and it can really help track down all the accounts you need to secure. If you need any additional assistance, feel free to ask.
: holy shit, you are 1 billion times more toxic in 1 game than my 2 accounts that JUST got perm banned. i dont understand this bullshit at all. mine also said it was from player review, less than 30 seconds AFTER THE LAST GAME PLAYED! like wtf? thats gotta be a lie right? its like they forget this is OCE and has AUSTRALIA here. swearing is the first thing kids are bloody taught!

Speaking as an Aussie who was taught swearing as a kid, there's a very distinct difference between fucking swearing and being toxic. If you're parents didn't teach you the difference, they sound like bad parents.
: Hacked Account
Seras covered the account recovery process, so I wont go into that (note, the account will receive a "security ban" until everything is sorted out with Support, just to make sure no additional changes are made while that's all happening). Just a couple notes, I'd recommend running an anti-virus scan on any personal/family/friend computers you have played LoL on recently (personally, I'd recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, as the free program does tend to pick up stuff that other anti-virus programs don't in my experience, but up to you). It's possible that this was the result of a keylogger or similar program getting onto your computer, so just a good move to check that, and secure any important stuff like emails, bank accounts etc. Secondly, you should check out https://haveibeenpwned.com/ as that will give you a pretty good idea if anything else has been compromised online. It doesn't have a complete database, but it's still a great resource for figuring out if your accounts have been compromised.
Voxin (OCE)
: RP purchase history
To get to the RP purchase history, you'll need to go to the "Account" options in the store (small circular icon on the top and far right next to "Gifting Centre" and "Purchase RP"), then select the "Purchase History" option on the left and the "RP Purchase History" should show up below that.
: Will I get punished for someone else's actions on my account?
If there's no history of account sharing on the account, and you're the original account user, you should be pretty much right, as whoever handles the case should be able to distinguish between games you've played and games that were played by someone else during a compromise, and subsequently any punishments that would have come from another persons actions would be removed. You'll still need to go through the Account Recovery process as normal, but generally whoever is the original account user is able to verify enough info with the Support staff to confirm they are the original account user. You might also want to run an anti virus scan on any computers you use regularly (personally, I'd recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for manual scans, as it tends to pick up more than other anti virus software in my experience, but up to you), check out https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if there's any indication of compromises on others services you use, and just generally check security on the really important stuff (like emails, bank accounts etc).
: > [{quoted}](name=HeartVine,realm=OCE,application-id=Ntey9fRZ,discussion-id=hzup1m2Q,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2019-05-18T06:48:05.163+0000) > > > > Firstly, it's my understanding that a single use of zero-tolerance language wont *necessarily* escalate to a ban, as it doesn't indicate any consistency for the behaviour. It can often escalate when grouped in with other behaviours, but generally "single use" cases are walking the line. fair enough but that does kinda contradict what has been stated here in the past and contradicts the term 'zero-tolerance'.
It's also important to consider that *everyone* can have a slight outburst from time to time, even the best behaved members of a community are prone to that, and I think that's why it makes sense for it to be like that. After all, if it's a *single* statement that is being looked at over a period of several months and/or several dozen games then it would be a bit harsh to escalate to a 14-day ban if the person in question had never been punished before. A chat restriction, sure, but a ban in that kind of scenario would be a bit of an overreaction, just because it could happen to *anyone* as a singular, abnormal act. Like I said though, that's my understanding of the system, and I'm not entirely sure if it does work *exactly* like that. You can feel free to ask via Support, but I'm not sure what they'll be inclined to tell you on that.
: So what happened to certain no tolerance language escalating to either 14day suspension or perm ban?
As far as I know, Riot's stance hasn't changed, nor has anything changed about how the systems in place deal with this kind of behaviour. A few things to consider, however. Firstly, it's my understanding that a single use of zero-tolerance language wont *necessarily* escalate to a ban, as it doesn't indicate any consistency for the behaviour. It can often escalate when grouped in with other behaviours, but generally "single use" cases are walking the line. Secondly, the system isn't perfect (no system is), so it's possible that it could miss things from time to time, and if you feel like the standard post-game report isn't sufficient, you can feel free to submit a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) directly. Lastly, while the IFS notifications are a great feature, there's a couple important details to keep in mind about them. For one thing, they were never designed to notify more than one person, only sending out a notification based on the *most recent* report that contributed to a punishment, and it even seems like the system fails to do that on more than a few occasions. Point being, a lack of the IFS notification doesn't indicate a lack of punishment. One final note; you shouldn't feel like you *have* to report a behaviour just because it's something Riot punishes. A large part of how "punishable behaviour" is determined comes down to how the community *reports* behaviours in-game (beyond their normal functions, reports are essentially used by Riot as feedback on what kinds of behaviours the community doesn't want to see). It's always good to help identify punishable behaviours, but if it's something you don't feel *needs* to be punished you should also consider that in how you choose to utilise the report system.
: 6 number digit thread
Is this specifically regarding using tokens to get BE directly? If so, then one thing to consider is that Riot used to support that a lot more than they do now. Between having options for using more tokens in one go (I believe you could exchange 50 at a time at one point), and having a higher exchange rate (I believe it peaked at 1 token to 10 BE), it certainly seems that Riot is moving *away* from supporting that. Personally, I don't like what Riot have done with that, but I also don't think there's going to be enough feedback from the community wanting this stuff back.
KriZx (OCE)
: Yuumi - Release date?
As per the patch notes, Yuumi will be released during patch 9.10 (which we are currently in). Generally, new champs become available a day or two after the patch goes live, though patch 9.10 has gone live a day earlier than normal so there *may* be other differences beyond the norm.
Lilc9 (OCE)
: Do You Guys Think My Permaban Was justify
So, based on the chat logs, it ultimately seems like a punishment was warranted. Just to go over the behaviours of issue here, there's a consistent passive-aggressive attitude, you've consistently provoked others, used direct insults on several occasions, as well as the more "direct" comments that the support agent mentioned specifically. It's also important to consider that it is *your* behaviour that is being considered, and whether someone else "initiated" the toxicity is ultimately irrelevant to *your* punishment (after all, you're still contributing to creating a negative experience by acting in such a manner). Based on the response from the support agent, it seems like you had previously received a 14-day ban, from which the standard progression is to a permanent ban (you would have been informed of that in the reform card of the 14-day ban). Really the only way to get a ban removed/reduced is if it was made in error, and if you believe that's the case the standard method of addressing that is to appeal by submitting a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (which you've already done). At this point, the only thing you *could* try is to respond to the ticket and ask for a second opinion (if you haven't done so already), though the chance of that changing anything is negligible. If you are genuinely sorry for your behaviour then that is ultimately a good thing, as it is the first step in addressing negative behaviours and reforming.
: is there a way to see the list of players that youve reported that have been banned
So basically there's no "list" you can see of what players have been punished off your reports. Ultimately, Riot wants the punishment systems to focus on *reform*, rather than persecution (for lack of a better word). Having such a "feature" would be counter-intuitive to that goal and, as a result (and among other reasons), Riot don't share information regarding players (whether it's related to punishments or not) with just anyone. There are certain exceptions (such as the anonymity of the IFS notifications), but for the most part such "feedback" is counter-intuitive to Riot's intentions and a non-toxic environment. Lord Sessh explored this aspect quite well in their response. So far as the IFS notifications are concerned, you should certainly not be basing "confirmation of punishment" on whether they show up. One major point of the IFS notifications is that they were originally designed to show only the *most recent* reporting player when action was taken, so that can still (potentially) leave dozens of other players in the dark about whether an action was actually taken. While it's my understanding that Riot intended to expand the notifications, it also seems like the system is worse off than when it was introduced, often failing to inform *anyone* when action is taken as a result of their report. Point being, a lack of the IFS notification is not an indication of a lack of punishment.
: Can you get permabanned for leaving?
One thing to consider with leaving and/or disconnecting from matches is that the Leaverbuster system does provide a small amount of leniency, as Riot understands that everyone has internet issues from time to time. Having a sufficiently low frequency/consistency to your leaving/disconnecting will mean you *shouldn't* see any punishment, however when it gets to a certain point action will be taken. Generally, Leaverbuster will stick to the standard Low Priority Queue escalation (5 minutes, then 10 minutes, then 20 minutes, in sets of 5 games). So far as bans go, it's my understanding that the Leaverbuster system isn't set up to issue bans, and that they would only be issued in the most extreme of cases for leaving/disconnecting offences. Really, if the games you do leave/disconnect from are far and few, you should be untouched by the Leaverbuster system. You can find more information on how Leaverbuster works by visiting the [Leaverbuster FAQ](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752714) on the Support site.
: Inactive for 6 Months, Gets Permanently Banned.
So your best bet at getting this sorted is probably to submit a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) using the standard Account Recovery process (ensure you're logged out, then use the "Recover my account" option). Explain your situation to them, and they'll do their best to help. One of the things they'll do is ask you a series of questions about the account that can't be answered using 3rd party services (op.gg, for example) to confirm you're the original owner of the account (you don't have to answer all of them, just enough to prove beyond reasonable doubt), and after that they will probably be able to identify any users that aren't you, and ideally reverse any bans resulting from the actions of those users. One thing to note is that any history of account sharing is likely to result in the Support agents being unable to do anything, as it is an explicit breach of the [ToU](https://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/legal/termsofuse) and comes down to a responsibility of the user. A couple things I'd recommend in this situation is, firstly, ensuring the security of any computers you use regularly. This is basically using whatever anti-virus software you have to run scans (the more thorough, the better) and check for anything out of the ordinary. For that I'd (personally) recommend downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and using the free version to run a scan, as that tends to pick up things that other programs might miss, in my experience (totally up to you, though). The other thing you can do is to check all your email addresses against the database on https://haveibeenpwned.com/ as that site will generally be able to tell you when any of your accounts have been compromised (it's not perfect, but it is a great resource for situations like this).
: Would you say that this is a good reason to perma ban someone?
So it seems like the main issue here is constant passive-aggressive chat use. If this is the kind of behaviour you regularly exhibited at the time, that would probably explain why the punishment system triggered. So far as the severity of the punishment, you should only have received a permanent ban if you'd previously received a 14-day ban. If you hadn't received a 14-day ban prior, or you are unsure whether you had, you can attempt to appeal the punishment via Support. It's also important to note that you are judged on your own behaviour, and not the behaviour of others. What they did is irrelevant to you, and vice versa. In order to appeal, you'll need to submit a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (use the "Discuss a personal suspension or restriction" option) and go through the process with them. They'll review the case, and make a determination based on the situation. It's important to note that if you have appealed previously, the decision from that instance will stand. At the very least, you'll be able to get more context from Support regarding the circumstances of the punishment, possibly additional chat logs that contributed to the punishment. Honestly, the best advice I think I could give is to avoid saying anything if it isn't constructive and relevant to the game. Anything that doesn't have direct relevance on the match (and subsequently winning) should be avoided, and anything that attacks or degrades others should also be avoided. When you do use chat to communicate with your team, try to put things is as positive a light as you can. Saying something like "[item] might work well against [champion]" is a lot better than something like "Why the fuck don't you have [item] against [champion]?"
cuhz (OCE)
: Appeal Permanent Suspension
So, looking through the chat logs it seems the main issues here are some directed insults (things like calling people "braindead", "noobs", "garbage" etc), and some passive-aggressive chat (things like statements that aren't explicitly directed at anyone, but still degrade others in some manner [for example, "cuhz: its weird how jg works", in the given context, implies the jungler is bad, without explicitly stating it]). If this is the kind of behaviour you exhibit with any consistency, then that's likely what has caused the punishment system to trigger. A few things to note; firstly, punishments trigger as a result of *your* behaviour, and what others have done isn't considered in that (just as your behaviour isn't considered in what others have done). You are being judged on what *you* have done, and you should reflect on what *you* have done, and how *you* can change. Secondly, it's often a bad idea to engage in more extreme forms of "banter" with a friend in a "public" space like team/all chat, as you are still subject to the same rules in those spaces as any other time (even if it is all in "good fun"). If you want to have that kiknd of banter with your friends, I'd recommend using some kind of private chat (like whispers), or a VoIP (such as the in-game voice chat, or something like Discord/Teamspeak) as you wont risk any repercussions. Ultimately, the best advice I could give to you would be is to learn not to say anything if it isn't productive. The way you seem to engage with your team in champion select (based on these chat logs) is the kind of thing you *should* be using chat for, to communicate and work as a team. If you're about to say something that *isn't* going to give you team necessary info on the current match, or advice that you honestly think will benefit them, then you're best just not saying anything, and if you are going to say something, try to do so in a positive manner (for example, "[item] might be a better options against [champion]" is a lot better than "why the fuck don't you have [item] against [champion]?"). So far as appealing this punishments goes, I'd say you *might* (and I really want to emphasise that "might") have a case for a reduction if you're correct in saying your last punishment was 3-4 years ago, depending on how your behaviour has been over that time. In order to appeal, you'll need to submit a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (use the "Discuss a personal suspension or restriction" option) and go through the process with them. They'll review the case, and be able to give you more context on the punishment (including any games/logs that weren't explicitly shown in the reform card), and *possibly* be able to reduce the punishment, if they think the perma-ban is unnecessary.
: Can anybody see my match history through forums please?
So I've spent about 5 minutes testing this, and it seems to be returning a 404 error for some player's match history (but not others) when attempting to access the full match history through their boards profile. From what I can tell, you should be able to access the full match history through the client by viewing their profile, clicking on the "Match History" tab then clicking on "Full Match History" in the top right (above "Recently Played Champions").

Darlkin (OCE)
: player support non-answers
The "Leaverbuster" stuff has been pretty well covered over the course of your interactions with the Support staff, so no need to go into further detail there. So far as the whole "getting matched with players you've reported/blocked" thing, I feel like you have some misconceptions about how matchmaking works. The bottom line is that there is no system used in LoL to *guarantee* you wont get matched with specific players. When you report a player, that simply flags their account (primarily that match) for Riot's systems (automatic, manual or both) to review and implement punishment where necessary. When you block a player, that simply prevents them from communicating with you (such as through private messages). *Neither* of those features affects matchmaking in any way, shape or form. If you encounter a specific player (or players) in a match that you *don't* want to get matched with again, you can significantly reduce the likelihood of being matched with them in the next match by taking a short break (5-15 minutes will work quite well, and give you time to cool down, get a drink/snack, go to the toilet etc), playing in an alternate queue or simply finding something else to do for a while (all of these should work reasonably well in any game).
: New Epic skins: Cats VS Dogs
Can I just say: > Fucking Furries ######Come on, we're all thinking it.
: URF, when is it ending?
Admittedly, Riot has been a bit inconsistent with this iteration of URF, though (from what I understand) the current version is a kind of "test" of a new style for the mode, with some very significant changes from previous versions, so they may just have decided to extend it in this instance to provide them with more data on how it's doing and how people like it (and, perhaps, to test their initial assumptions about a longer duration detracting from the experience). Not to mention, people are always asking for URF (even permanently) and Riot just wants to give it to them (occasionally) without it being as "repetitive" and "stagnant" as the original. In the [most recent announcement regarding URF](https://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/gameplay/arurf-extended-4-more-weeks), Riot announced that the mode would be around until the end of patch 9.6 (current patch), and modes/events typically end a day or two *before* the next patch goes live, so you should expect URF to end on the 1st or 2nd of April (Monday/Tuesday next week).
: which word(s) get me suspended then? Please quote it out, then I will never mention any words related to that.
To be clear, there isn't just a "list of words" that Riot uses to punish players with. In the vast majority of cases, the context is more important that the words themselves. A good example of this from your chat logs are the comments "you are just Australian - Stupid dogs of American". While the words "Australian" and "dogs" are nothing bad *on their own*, when they're combined (and particularly with a word such as "stupid") it becomes something that is just not acceptable in this community. The comments you made are, quite simply, racist, not because of the specific words you used, but the way in which you used them.
: Tear of goddess bug
There was a change to how Tear and Tear upgrade items work with the patch 9.6 notes, as follows: > If you own Manamune(/Muramana) or Archangel's Staff(/Seraph's Embrace), you're unable to purchase the other (or another Tear of the Goddess) > > Link for reference: https://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/patch/patch-96-notes#patch-items Basically, it's no longer possible to buy multiple tears/tear-items.
: Crafted Dissapeared
It's important to note that all permanents acquired through the crafting system are automatically redeemed, and wont show up as loot on the "Loot" page. Instead, it will all be made available to you straight away and applied in your Collection (though some things may take several hours to actually appear). There are certain exceptions, such as receiving a skin shard for a champion you don't own. Wasn't sure if you were aware of this, wanted to mention it just in case. For something like this, probably the best thing you can do is submit a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (I'd recommend the "Account management, data requests, or deletion" option, as it seems most appropriate) and see if they can help figure out what's happening, and find a way to fix it. There are no guarantees that Support will be able to help (or it might be a while before something *can* be done), but there's nothing anyone on the boards could do anyway, so it's still your best option. Good luck, hope this works out for you.
DKRises (NA)
: It's still here... do you have an updated time? Because I was debating buying the URF Booster thing in the store but didn't want it to be a waste... however I said that a month ago and URF is still here.
ARURF was extended for another four weeks, and should end on the 1st or 2nd of April from memory. I'll go find the news announcement for it and drop the link here. As far as the URF club/booster purchase, I'm fairly sure that was removed from the store at some point and is no longer purchasable, in which case you're too late for that. The information should be available in the post regarding the extension (if not, I'll find it). EDIT: I've found the news announcement for it, which you'll find at [this link](https://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/gameplay/arurf-extended-4-more-weeks). It doesn't state a date, but it does state that ARURF will only remain until the end of patch 9.6, and generally modes/events end a day or two *before* the new patch goes live, so April 1st or 2nd should be when it will end. So far as the Golden Spatula Club, it's stated on that same page (and *should* be stated in all the original information) that that was only available until the 15th of February, so unfortunately you wont be able to get that now.
: Tribunal system is an absolute joke. suits the company it belongs to.
> Why don't people get punished for Griefing? Quite simply, they do. The thing to keep in mind is that there's a lot of factors about the situation that may make it *seem* like they don't, and even so I doubt you'll find someone who wouldn't say that the punishment system just isn't as efficient as it should be regarding gameplay offences. One thing to keep in mind is that gameplay offences are a lot harder to verify compared to other types offences. For example, it's a lot easier to see that someone is being blatantly racist to another player than it is to distinguish between a genuinely bad player and someone who is *intentionally* playing badly. With that said, there's a couple things I just want to note about this situation. Firstly, the Tribunal was removed on *all* servers years ago (OCE never actually had a Tribunal) because it was vastly inefficient. For example, the community often voted for unnecessary punishment/over-punishment, meaning almost every case had to be manually reviewed, whereas the current system can manage being largely automated. It took several weeks, if not months, for basic punishments to be implemented, the kinds of punishments that the current system can manage in under 15 minutes etc. Secondly, and I know it wasn't mentioned but I just want to make sure everyone is aware, while the Instant Feedback Notifications are a *great* way to know when someone you reported has been punished, they shouldn't be relied upon for complete communication. They're often unreliable, not showing up when they're supposed to, and often only showing up for the *most recent* reporting player. You should never assume a player *hasn't* been punished just because you didn't receive the notification.
Dawnlight (OCE)
: (OCE) Perma Ban Appeal: Dawnlight
Hey Dawnlight, It's great that you're making efforts to deal with your outbursts and give yourself better self-control over your actions, you're already doing more than most players in your situation. Always good to see someone taking responsibility, and trying to improve themselves. Unfortunately, Riot has a pretty strict policy regarding punishments. The *only* time they will remove a ban is if the punishment was issued in error, such as when a punishment *shouldn't* have been issued, or when a less severe punishment was warranted. Looking through the chat logs, it becomes fairly obvious why your behaviour warranted a punishment (and I'm sure you already know which parts are problematic, but if you'd like someone to go through it in detail with you just feel free to ask). Perhaps the only way you *might* (and I *really* want to stress that "might") get a reduced sentence is if you didn't follow the "standard" punishment progression, which is usually chat restrictions (10-game into 25-game) then bans (14-day into permanent). It's important to note that certain "no tolerance" behaviours (such as suicide encouragement, homophobia and racism) can result in escalations past chat restrictions, so it's entirely possible you would have only received the bans if the provided logs are anything to go by. You can definitely feel free to submit a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (use the "Account suspensions or restrictions" option) and discuss the situation with them, but I honestly doubt they'll be able to do anything in this case. If you have any more questions, or need any more assistance, feel free to ask.
WiseKai (OCE)
: RP adjustment again?
One thing to note is that the *current* changes are affecting most servers (including NA), and are primarily due to taxation of online goods and services. For the most part, costs of RP will remain more or less the same, relatively speaking, when compared to other servers. All Riot is doing is changing the prices a bit to compensate for tax, which *literally everyone* who provides goods/services does. So far as the changes from 4 years ago, that was intended to bring various regions in-line with each other (providing a relatively equal $ to RP ratio, considering exchange rates), and just about every other region (and even NZ) that experienced those changes got hit *harder* than Aus/OCE. Even *after* that change, we were still getting better $ to RP ratios than NA (considering exchange rates).
: ok sure, but will they do the reverse?
When they announced the changes 4 years ago, they did state that they would be very much inclined to do the reverse *if* (*big* emphasis on that "if") the exchange rates showed a long-term trend in the reverse, which unfortunately hasn't happened (which means those changes are still in effect). So far as *this* instance, it's largely reliant on the legislation regarding taxation of online goods and services in specific countries/regions, since that's the primary reason for these changes. Quite frankly, you shouldn't expect any kind of significant reverse on those taxes.
Ornn (OCE)
: riot skipped my 25 chat ban for me simply complaining that every game my team and not the enemy is dogshit and asking to ff no harassment or abuse or flaming anyone. riots punishment system is a flawed joke thats why trolls/greafers wont EVER get banned but if you use a bad word or tell someone off you get instafucked
I definitely understand people feel this way about the systems in place, and (to en extent) why they feel this way. So far as gameplay offences go, you wont get any arguments that it *should* be much more efficient than it is, though it's also important to consider that it's a lot harder to figure out the distinction of someone having a bad game and intentionally screwing over their team than it is to figure out that someone is being a complete ass in chat, which is why the chat punishments might *seem* to take precedence (they don't, they're just a hell of a lot easier to deal with, and can primarily be done with the automated systems). As for your specific case, I'd recommend you appeal by submitting a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (use the "Account suspensions or restrictions" option) if you haven't done so already, and you can feel free to start a thread regarding your case, post your chat logs in it and get some feedback from the community and volunteers (you're definitely not obliged to do so, but if you genuinely shouldn't have received that punishment and Support doesn't help it would likely be the *only* way to get help).
: So, how did I get banned?
So looking through the logs, I can only assume that the instances of "%%%" (which seems to have been automatically censored by the boards) are the term "f-a-g", in which case that would explain the 14-day ban. Ultimately, behaviours like homophobia, racism, suicide encouragement etc. are taken *very* seriously, and can definitely result in an immediate escalation to a 14-day ban. There's nothing stopping you from engaging in such behaviour in private (such as whispers/private messages), but you definitely shouldn't be doing it in team/all chat, that's just not acceptable. I'd recommend that you refrain from saying anything unless it's actually constructive/useful, as that will help you keep from crossing any lines. Though I doubt there would be any possibility that it would change anything in this case, you do have the option of appealing the punishment by submitting a ticket to [Support](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new) (use the "Account suspensions or restrictions" option) and seeing what they have to say about it.
Kakoda (OCE)
: Yeah a perma ban won't stop them in my opinion, though at least if they bought any skins or anything they will lose it all. Plus have to level another account or something. It's not much but it's something. I have asked roit for the chat logs so I can take it to the police, they probably won't do much. Hopefully though the police will follow up the matter with riot and maybe find the person and do something. Probably a long shot but worth a go.
Presumably, the police should chase that up, and perhaps even get a warrant, if you tell them you want to press charges, as is your legal right. It's important to keep in mind, however, that it will be hard to maintain anonymity with the individual who's done this should you choose to pursue such action. I'd recommend you take some time and think about how far you do want to take this, as you do certainly have the option of taking it to court.
