I'm serious, I'm genuinely scared to write anything for fear of it coming off as negative and getting punished for it. Some of the chat logs I've seen recently of players who got punished have been about as mild as I can think of, that it makes me wonder what you can say that won't result in punishment.
I don't think I'm the only one either. In most of the matches I play, the chat stays completely empty aside from pings. Is this what Riot has intended to happen? For nobody to speak to one-another for fear of being punished by a system that never takes context into account?
