: I don't work for Riot Games, I'm part of their Volunteer program. Also, while I do not want this to go off-topic, as well as that I don't want to discuss this stuff anyways, I'll just say that it's sometimes best to wait for what the court says in the end. The media will post about anything dramatic to get more readers, it doesn't necessarily make these charges true, though of course, it's possible that they're true, but we'll have to see what the court decides, since that's probably what's next to the truth.
This is not off-topic, this is very important for anyone who's thinking about working at riot games This is not the first time riot games has problems of this kind just 2 months ago there was the DANIEL Z KLEIN (who was fired) scandal also : "Riot Games Apologizes, Promises Change After Sexism Accusations" https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news/riot-games-sexism-changes-1202920611/ Riot Games as a whole is a company that i don't think anyone should aspire to work at: 1. Riot GAMES was founded in 2006 and since then i has released ONE GAME (a copy/paste of dota not even something original), just one copy/paste game in 13 years .. the conclusion i've drawn from this is that riot games is ONLY interested in making $$ not games, creative people that have any passion for video games should stay away from riot games because this is a place where Innovation and Creativity are DEAD in such a place only the $$ hungry, the worst that the gaming industry has to offer could gather in order to devise new ways to shove lootboxes/microtransactions down the customers throat. 2. Riot GAMES is STEALING and has stolen assets from other games/movies and will probably continue to do so until more people sue them. (example veigar is 100% vivi from final fantasy 9, some skins/lore elements are STOLEN from world of warcraft, arthas-jarvan .. ) "Edgar Davids wins lawsuit over League of Legends Lucian skin" https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-08-14-ex-footballer-edgar-davids-wins-lawsuit-against-league-of-legends-dev-riot-over-lucian-skin These are all facts and they paint a picture for anyone willing pay attention .. Riot games is a toxic environment and an awful "game developer/publisher"

: Those are for working at Telus though, which is not Riot Games. I mean, they are the Riot Support, but not... Riot Games.

: >Well .. they SHOULD this is multi billion $$$ company the LEAST they could do is check a few chat logs once in a while there are at least a few million matches in any minute lets say 10% of them have toxic flamers in them, that means 10000 chatlogs to read through in 1 min, you need at least 30k employee to read through chats 24/7 (or maybe even more) and why would they do that when they can use an ai that does the same but faster and objectively without bs? >EXAMPLE: i once opened a ticket and asked for help, i posted screenshots, asking the gms why they won't do anything about someone who said they're going to CUT OFF MY HEAD WHILE MY FAMILY WATCHES AND THEN DO THE SAME TO THEM, other screenshots of people calling me cancer or "a useless worthless piece of $#$@" i play online games for more than 15 years now and noone ever said anything similar to this to me out of the blue, are you sure you did nothing to them first? >the next gm told me if i keep insulting them they won't respond to my tickets anymore (he felt insulted cuz .. i said i did 90% of his WORK FOR HIM .. i'm speechless) this just further proves my point, you cant talk without insulting someone, so there is no surprise you get insulted back, im amazed that they didnt ban you first
You didn't read everything i wrote .. "there are at least a few million matches in any minute lets say 10% of them have toxic flamers in them, that means 10000 chatlogs to read through in 1 min, you need at least 30k employee to read through chats 24/7 (or maybe even more) and why would they do that when they can use an ai that does the same but faster and objectively without bs?" 1. "check a few chat logs once in a while" this is what i said NOT ALL OF THEM just "a few" and not at the time just "once in a while". This way they could do a clean-up let's say every 3 months ban x number of toxic players, eventually you would end up with fewer players but waaay waayy les in-game toxicity the problem is THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THE COMMUNITY THEY CARE ABOUT $$$ these people are potential buyers of skins/champions/rp they don't wanna lose $$$. -"there are at least a few million matches" rly ? are u sure ?! "a few million" "a few" would suggest more than 2 so at least 3 millions ?! 2. Riot games doesn't share the number of active accounts anymore because they started losing players some time ago, id be amazed if the number would be wayy way over something like ~5 mil ACTIVE ACCOUNTS (many streamers stopped playing league it's not getting as much attention as it used to) and the 15+ mil accounts that riot used to brag about long long ago were not all ACTIVE ACCOUNTS. let's say .. they have 10 mill active accounts and let's say no one has more than one account .. so one account=one person who's playing the game, now let's say EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM HAPPENS TO BE PLAYING AT THE SAME TIME, work, school, time zones be damned .. (servers in SOME regions would crash) that's 10 ppl/game out of 10 mil ppl .. how many games is that ?! is it MILLIONS ?! like u said ?! "i play online games for more than 15 years now and noone ever said anything similar to this to me out of the blue, are you sure you did nothing to them first?" Sure if someone insults me it's my fault .. makes sense .. this coming from the guy who thinks there are 3-10 MILLIONS of lol games going on at this very second. Are u actually pretending like you have never seen someone in this game rage for no reason ?! or maybe you're one of those players who think it's ok to insult/flame someone when they make a mistake. "this just further proves my point, you cant talk without insulting someone, so there is no surprise you get insulted back, im amazed that they didnt ban you first?" I provided them with screenshots of someone being toxic they refused to even look at the screenshots there's a button that allows you to upload screenshots specifically for this type of problem when you open a ticket, wouldn't you expect someone to at least look at the screenshots ?! Idk if you work for riot, you're a contrarian or maybe you're just trolling me but i do hope you read this and maybe you rethink some of the ideas expressed in your first comment.
Silent Note (EUNE)
: I would give a 9/10 to the game. Character design is really what makes this game so amazing. The community and the player base however would be a 3/10, that's my only issue with the game right now.
But most of the character's are stolen from other games/movies ?! veigar=vivi from final fantasy 9 it looks like it's almost the exact same character even the name starts with a V they even got sued once and lost ..

Rioter Comments
: i cant speak from riots ends, but i dont think employees are going to read through the game chat of every game with a report in. each report will more than likely act as a flag, and when enough cumulative flags on one person accumulate i assume - depending on the overall type of report - in-game trolling- toxic behaviour - offensive name etc... different actions are taken. for example if it is a name i assume after x amount of name reports there just an auto reset on the accounts name and they have to pick a new one, this will be handled by a simple algorithm i guess rather than a human. i assume there are more complicated variant of this dealing with the other types of report, hence adding complications when it has to determine "toxic" behaviour , id imagine something similar would be in place to scan the game chat for certain words and phrases that are by no means allowed. and id also guess that it only escalates to chat scans when that player again has accumulated a large amount of reports. id also think that the amount a player has to be reported is 1 large to begin with and 2 increases depending on what is being reported. i.e. id imagine toxic behaviour needs more reports than offensive name. because its easier to determine truthful reports in that sense than deceptive reports for toxic behaviour. a lot of reports can be misjudged and almost considered 'fake' or 'bm' reports. so to allow for such reports the counter would be higher id guess. so in your case the reports will definitely of contributed towards these players being flagged up. but honestly its only in very few cases where riot employees personally do this, i guess as it consumes a lot of cost and time and man power, so when they do do it its for things like indefinite bans and by players that are above and beyond the simple label of toxic. Also another problem in which id have no idea on how to tackle or how riot view it, is that the maturity level of the player base is absolutely mad, and the age range. if someone my age said something inappropriate and chat ban worthy id expect a consequence but if someone say 10 years old said something similar or the same it kinda feels harsh to ban a kid for something they just didnt understand. i know that last point might annoy a lot of people, but im sure despite what consensus says, riot want to keep their player base and they want to keep all parts of it. ultimately i might be completely off on how its handled but the principles and reasoning are probably something similar (i probably should of done some deep research first). unless riot literally has an army of gnomes to endlessly search through every chat log in every game then in which case i dont even know. :) here is another link that is almost definitely better written and hopefully make more sense. https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/player-behavior/reports-how-do-they-work also i know Riot Blaustoise was on an episode of beyond the rift and reports were bought up and he discussed some of it. also maybe honour rating is tied to reports from that account, id imagine a negative account with lots of reports and 0 locked honour level isnt taken too seriously compared to a player who has maybe 8 reports on them in an entire season and have 5 honour level. purely a guess tho
"i cant speak from riots ends, but i dont think employees are going to read through the game chat of every game with a report in" -Well .. they SHOULD this is multi billion $$$ company the LEAST they could do is check a few chat logs once in a while it's not like they don't have the money to hire people for this .. BUT THEY JUST DON'T CARE (a.i. .. algorithms can't detect every bad word spelled in a "creative" way) -riot games created a sexist/homophobic/racist environment for everyone working there, RITO=TOXIC https://www.businessinsider.com/riot-games-sexism-discrimination-lawsuit-2018-11 -They don't even care about what's happening in their own company with the people they HIRED .. you expect them to care about us ?! they don't .. EXAMPLE: i once opened a ticket and asked for help, i posted screenshots, asking the gms why they won't do anything about someone who said they're going to CUT OFF MY HEAD WHILE MY FAMILY WATCHES AND THEN DO THE SAME TO THEM, other screenshots of people calling me cancer or "a useless worthless piece of $#$@" the first few gm's said i should just mute them (ok but this is an online game you are supposed to interact with people, you can even get reported if you refuse to communicate), so i said that i did about 90% of the work for them (the screenshots) the least they co do is look at them and make a decision, the next gm told me if i keep insulting them they won't respond to my tickets anymore (he felt insulted cuz .. i said i did 90% of his WORK FOR HIM .. i'm speechless) eventually another gm responded and he thanked me for the screenshots, said he's gonna look into it .. idk if he did and idc i'm not playing this #$!@$ anymore..
