: Jeez. Can you provide us some context. Despite in western part of world we slavs are not pc pussies and if you tell smb to die its not that toxic. Its considered as friendly taunting.
the context is double standards. typing a death wish in chat results in automatic 14 day ban if you have no previous punishment, and perma-ban if you already had a 14 day ban previously. players have been banned despite proving with chat-logs that the context was friendly and that no one got hurt, but despite that, riot has kept a firm stance on zero tolerance towards death jokes. this is not about players being pussies who can't take some friendly taunting. it's about riot punishing normal players so severely, but then giving other players special treatment.

sure, the skin is totally free... as long as you spend 100€ on rng loot-boxes.

: "loyalty skins" god that sounds like EA's "The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes." bullshit.
that just goes to show how delusional those people are. Like I said before, I've played this since season 3 and I spend more than 100€. so, all things considered, I'd say I'm a relatively loyal player. But now, because I refuse to pay for a skin that is locked behind a loot-box system, that means I'm no longer loyal?

: What to do when you get flamed alot
> Yes, go to EUW , less toxic what makes you think that EUW is less toxic? it's not. also, in regards to the player support, it just goes to show how this game has declined in the last couple of years. In season 3, I send a support ticket asking exactly the same question, but instead of accusing me of being toxic the support person told me this: > Positive outlook on things helps out a lot when you are in the team and choice of words while communicating can mean a lot in the outcome of any situation. Positive scripting and keeping the moral up is very important. Even if they do not react well to what you are doing, still maintain your mind set. this is honestly the most inspiring shit that I've ever come across in this game. be a positive player no matter what. even if they continue to troll, what matters is that you keep being yourself. don't become the thing you are trying to fight.
: Is this bann worthy?
don't announce that you're going to mute people. "an opponent worth threatening is an opponent worth cutting down." Don't unsheathe your blade if you don't intend to use it. if someone is being toxic to you, don't argue with them... mute them, report them and move on. actions speak louder than words. do what you must do and nothing else. this is a team game. sometimes you will be matched with inbred mongrels and learning to deal with them is part of the game. it's just like in real life, it's impossible to oppress conflict because that in itself creates more conflict. your only choice is to become strong enough to deal with it.

are you using auto-attack click on left mouse button? if yes, try to disable it. if the bug stop happening we'll know where it's coming from, at least. that specific key-bind option has always felt like spaghetti code to me because of how it messes with a key that can't otherwise be bound. maybe there was something in the patch that finally broke it. particularly, there was something in the patch notes that looks very similar: > Fixed an issue where chargeable abilities (ex. Varus' Q - Piercing Arrow could sometimes become unable to be cast, causing champions to sit through the entire charge window until the ability fizzled except now it's happening to auto-attacks.
Composure (EUNE)
: I'm not avenging anything with those bans. In fact if I ban janna jg then either ppl pick something useful or they will still gonna troll. Nothing will change about this, so there's really no vengeance here. Because if I ban something my position won't change. The position can only change for enemy if he decides to stop his bs. This vengeance part doesn't make sense. Especially in this dead game. " it doesn't reform the troll, you're just becoming part of the problem." That's how you fight the problem. If words does not work, then you have to make a decision. Like Kratos from GOW. Sometimes you have to make harsh decisions. Because actions speak louder than words. This community is just doomed. I don't see any reason why someone should even think like you at this point. Even the game developers does not really care about their game that much. They consider toxicity as just bad words. Yet true and worst experience for others is trolling, griefing, intentional feeding, etc. The thing is you can't resolve your issues only with words.
"Like Kratos from GOW" -> Kratos is motivated by vengeance. if you're comparing yourself to him that just proves that you're also vengeful even if you're not consciously aware of it. "Sometimes you have to make harsh decisions." -> I agree. I never said I was against making harsh decisions. what I'm trying to explain is that your way of dealing with the problem is not making things better. talking doesn't work, banning doesn't work, so maybe you should try something else... my point is that if the situation doesn't actually improve, then you can't call it justice. you can only call it justice if it actually fixes the problem, otherwise you're just satisfying your own personal impulses. "the game developers does not really care about their game that much." -> you actually convinced me with this line. because personally, I blame riots incompetence for most toxicity in game. so maybe if we all just make the game even more toxic, then riot will eventually be forced to fix the problem whether they want it or not.

Composure (EUNE)
: What's my point I'm pretty sure it was already clear enough. Like I said to ban some champs that ppl intend to troll with. If I don't like someone going idk let's say Janna jungle I will ban that thing. If he's gonna troll idc at least this person will understand that I don't want to deal with his bs. This is dead game at this point, don't think about it too much. "just let people play what they want." No I can't let everyone to do whatever they want. In order to bring true justice sometimes u have to be a villain. "if someone wants to troll, they will troll regardless of their pick so banning their "troll-pick" won't make a difference, it will only encourage them to troll even more." That's true, but it doesn't mean my only option is to deal with this behaviour.
"In order to bring true justice sometimes u have to be a villain." that's a pathological ideology right there... the moment you stop looking at the means to achieve an end, that's when you become the thing you are trying to fight. vengeance is not justice. it's just a purely malicious comeback with no positive impact. it doesn't make your game better, it doesn't reform the troll, you're just becoming part of the problem.
: Low GPU usage and Low fps
don't use uncapped fps. it can cause severe stuttering. go to the ingame options and select a fixed fps cap. if this doesn't work, try the "disable all sound" option. if this fixes the problem, go to your computer options and make sure your sound is set to 48000 Hz. turn the sound back on and try again to see if the problem is solved. also, since you build your gaming pc yourself, are you sure that your power supply is strong enough? saving mode is irrelevant if your cable can't supply the required electricity in the first place.
: Tristana Jump
it's intentional. her jump used to be interruptible but riot changed it to make her only be affected by cc at the end of it. I'm not arguing whether or not that's a good or bad thing, you know... I'm just saying that the change you're suggesting is actually just reversing a previous change. on the flipside, you can interrupt nocturne's R dash.
: Why is smurfing not a reportable offence?
you kind of deserved it, tbh. asking your opponents if your bot is shit is the same as calling them shit yourself. if no one had mentioned it, you could have shrugged it off as simply having skilled opponents. but no, the fact that they are smurfs is somehow relevant to you. you can't report people for being more skilled than you, that's idiotic. being a smurf or not has nothing to do with it. you can however report them for saying "gg ez" because it's unsportsmanlike behaviour. the summoners code tells you to be humble in victory and show grace in defeat. making fun of your opponents for being less skilled than you is not acceptable. so you could have reported them for abusive chat and verbal harassment. but it goes both ways... calling your botlane shit just because you were loosing is not sportsmanlike either. all things said, though, a lot of people create smurf accounts simply because they enjoy stomping games to boost their own ego which is not very nice. strait up banning smurf accounts doesn't seem like a good solution though. maybe Riot could try to connect smurf accounts to the main account in order to identify toxic behaviour like this. it's just a wild idea though, I'm not sure if this would actually work.

: Feel The Climbing is based to highly on SMURFS or a Big MMR miss match?
> Climbing is based on a big MMR miss match you are not wrong. a player climbs in the ranked ladder because his mmr is below of his actual skill lvl which has the consequence of him winning more often and therefore climbing. once your mmr reaches a balance you will stop climbing.

: is it allowed to make a macro that presses q always when i hold the key down?
Riot has already made statements about macros. you are allowed to custom key-bind as much as you want as long as 1 button press= 1 action. the Lee Sin ward jump macro is banned, for example. in your case, what you are describing 1 button press that casts the same ability multiple times. what aggravates this case is that you could time the casting intervals with perfect precision to spam an ability the instant it comes of cooldown, which would otherwise require precise timing from the player. not only does your macro go against the 1 press = 1 action policy, but it also gives you an unfair advantage on champions like Cassiopeia or Karthus, for example. it's probably safe to assume that you'll be banned if you use that macro regardless of the method you use to bind it.

it's not rude to tell someone that they crossed the line. if you're not comfortable with your relationships, cut the ties and move on. depending on the context, talking things over could be a great solution... sometimes the problem is just a misunderstanding. also, I'm not saying this is the case, but don't be a leech who takes advantage of people when it's convenient and then ignores them during the rest of the time. again, I'm not accusing you of anything, but some people do this and it's not very nice.

they announced more prestige skins and yet no alternative ways of obtaining prestige points like they said they would. 100€ for a fancy chroma is ridiculous. heck, prestige skins would be a great idea for mastery points. for example, trade 100.000 mastery points on a champion for the prestige skin on that specific champion.

what the hell? do you guys even read the patch notes? the experience SCALING got nerfed! the experience at lvl 1 is exactly the same, but the experience after lvl 2 is reduced. patch notes: > Jungle Camp Experience > > Camp experience scaling decreased. Rift Scuttler gold scaling also decreased. > > Our preseason changes to camp experience didn't result in the jungler power and influence reduction we intended, so we're following up. > > Small Camps > > Experience scales every second level instead of every level; scaling reduced from +50% to +25%.

XP SCALING Every level from 1-7 ⇒ Levels 1/3/5/7 RED BRAMBLEBACK 115-180 ⇒ 115-143.75 BLUE SENTINEL 115-180 ⇒ 115-143.75 Rift Scuttler > > Gold and experience scaling reduced from +100% to +80%. GOLD 70-140 ⇒ 70-126 EXPERIENCE 115-230 ⇒ 115-207 soooo..... now that we got this cleared out we can start to analyse: lvl 1 is exactly the same. lvls 2/4/6 do NOT scale! this means that lvl 2 received a massive nerf in experience. instead of receiving proportional experience at all levels, you have to farm during lvls 1/3/5/7, because levels 2/4/6 do not scale. you are LOOSING experience by farming during levels 2/4/6, and the total scaling was nerfed as well, which means, even if you do farm at levels 1/3/5/7, you are still getting less experience compared to before. what is the optimal path? easy: farm at lvls 1/3/5/7, and gank during lvls 2/4/6. how does this affect junglers: -> ganking junglers are still going to gank because they BENEFIT from ganking at lvls 2/4/6 -> farming junglers are screwed because they will barely gain any experience during lvls 2/4/6 look... it's not that hard to understand... if you nerf farming, the players will look for xp somewhere else. what are the alternatives? that's right, GANKING! junglers who snowball the early game are completely unaffected by this change while farming junglers got massively nerfed. how does this affect the meta? junglers are even more oppressive because now they HAVE to gank whether they want it or not. farming is not a viable option. tl;dr: the balance team is not just hypocritical... they are insane and completely detached from reality and logic.

: Is saying "no u" bannable?
I don't think that "no u" should be punishable ever... replying "no u" is not the same as replying with the same insult. p1 -> [insult] p2 -> [same insult] player 2 is taking the insult from player 1 and then player 2 makes the conscious decision of replying with the same insult. player 2 made a choice of using the same insult but he could have used any other insult as well. the fact is that player 2 used an insult. p1 -> [insult] p2 -> "no u" player 2 is not using the same insult, but instead deflecting it. player 2 is not responsible for what player 1 says. player 1 is the sole responsible for whatever insult bounced back at him. "no u" has absolutely no negative connotation whatsoever and is even used as a joke in most cases. replying to an insult with "no u" is most likely an attempt to prevent a toxic environment. replying with "no u" can be interpreted as "hey, you just insulted me but I'm going to take it as a joke and I will reply with another joke because I have a sense of humour." also, you can only consider something an insult, if it has an objective and defined meaning. "no u" has no such meaning. I could ask you "what is the definition of "no u" that you are so offended about?" and you would have no answer because "no u" is not an insult or offensive in any context. a real insult has a meaning that makes it offensive. in the particular case that the OP has exemplified, it is an insult related to death and there is a group of people who is particularly vulnerable to it (people with depression). replying with the same insult is not okay, but I don't believe that even a single person would be legitimately offended at a "no u" reply. some people would probably pretend to feel offended about this but if anyone truly feels offended that person should probably go to a psychiatrist.
Shamose (EUW)
: I don't think so. Unless people start mass reporting for saying "no u", maybe then the system will think it a insult or something.
the system doesn't automatically classify stuff as insults. if the system picks something up as a potential insult, it will show it to someone at riot who will then have to decide if it really is an insult or not. p 1 -> "take the blue buff" p 2-> "no u" [p 2 gets banned] yeah... not happening... saying "no u" is fine. the system could never detect this as an insult without being completely unreasonable about it.
: My worst game so far.
my worst game was during season 3 when I got matched into a 4-man premade. I had been playing league for only about a month or two. even though I was the only one wining my lane, all 4 of them spend the entire game raging and flaming me, blaming me for everything that was wrong with the team and being toxic on a level I had never experienced before (and never experienced again after that). it destroyed me mentally and I wasn't able to touch the game again for a whole week after that happened.

: This has very little to do with Riot. First of all moderation is not done by Riot so they are not involved in this at all, and secondly, this moderation practice is based on youth protection laws. The fact that those do not necessarily make sense is not Riots fault either. The pictures Riot creates do not violate youth protection laws. Mature content does. If you want to know the difference, check the laws. Doesn't mean that those laws make a lot of sense, but they exist and need to be respected nevertheless.
you misunderstood the argument. I did not post mature content. I posted a name that leads to mature content if you search for it by your own means (since I did not provide any links or methods either). if someone sees the name of a female champion on the boards and decides to search for it, he will find mature pictures. so by that logic, mentioning the name of female champions should be punishable as well.
DerPunkt (EUW)
: Thanks for using up some of your time with that in depth answer. >On that, I disagree. I don't like the guideline that "What isn't explicitly in the rules can't be punished", I think this is something very dangerous, it leads to confusion among those with power and those who have to live under this arbitrary power. I am with you on the whole "keep it broad" side of argument. There a good reasons why the rules are not stated as restrictive laws what you cannot do but as guidelines what you should avoid and how you should behave. They further have a balance between negative bans of actions and positive reinforcements of wished behaviour. The problem I am aiming at is not failing to intervene when something not explicitly stated arises, the problem is how this intervention is done recently. Punishing somebody for something he was not sure about is a misconduct on the relationship between those with and those without power. I usually dislike the comparison to real life law and institutionalized power, but it makes it easier to bring a point across. There are several points at which there should we use more leeway. Breaking the rules without intend is something like this. There is this quite principle in law in germany, you sure know it, and it sure is used in many more countries, which states ignorance does not protect from punishment. And this is an important principle in law. But we use it with a lot of leeway. When you indicator is not working and police notices it, they could fine you. After all it is your obligation to check your vehicle is working properly BEFORE you drive it. But there is always the possibility of it failing while driving and you not noticing it... Rather unlikely, but you get the point. The cops will not fine you, most of the time they will merely inform you. If they notice you again with the same issue, they will fine you though. At the same time, not knowing you broke a law might be counted on as attenuating circumstances towards you. This directly addresses your mod guidelines >b) not punish when in doubt, even if that means someone who was kind of a jerk gets away with nothing. Depending on the severity of the crime of course. A oil firm cannot really count on that when they spill oil in a nature reservate and claim they didn't know it was one, after all it is all they are doing... so they have to know in this case you would actually have another point against them since it would count as negligence if they actually failed to inform them about the dangers of a digging or transport route. But you get the point. So what I meant with Dialogue, was not the Mods talking to each other about what they should do. But informing the accused that they their action, be it not directly stated, can be considered a break of board rules and thus the post has been deleted (or part of it) and they wish you to further refrain from such actions. Of course this only counts for stuff in the gray area. Like what OP did, OP can argue that it nowhere says he cannot mention it and he can argue that he did not advertise the games. But mods can argue, like you did, that it conflicts with their interpretation of youth protection laws and how to apply them to the board. So this would have been a perfect case. If you wish, use a flag system, afaik mods can flag accounts which will lead to more severe or less severe punishment depending on the accounts history. So if somebody repeatedly enters the gray area, he might need a punish to show him that he is on thin ice with what he is doing there. And to your last question >but do you have any specific examples (except this thread) that lead you to this conclusion? It is more of a hunch, and this specific example alone should suffice for me to argue against the current practice, at least concerning OP ban, which by now should be over anyway so there is no use for that, but it is to raise so it might be useful to have had this talk. On the side of other examples, well I have my case that I quoted above. Where 7-Day ban got turned into no ban (which meant 1 hour since it was not possible to revert the decision but to change the punishment) This is a pretty big %%%%-up I'd say. This would have been a good idea to talk to the creator of a questionable post and just delete the offending pieces (after all I could have textualized it, even though it shows what I am talking about much better as pics... Picture... thousand words etc... While arguing for my case I met another guy with a pretty unreasonable ban of 24 hours he explained to me what happend it was some weird insider thing about a power hungry mod who got removed from the NA boards as a mod and he mentioned this in a meme-ish form... it was all very weird. From my perspective taking offense with his post was OK but punishing him was not. It seemed like a classic case of "sweeping it under the carpet". Ofc I do not know all about this case but it struck me as odd anyways. Additionally to that, I see many complaints about the moderator staff. I also received a warning (basically the system I am arguing for) for another threat where I quoted some insults to and used these in to show somebody that there is a difference between criticism and flaming. I basically insulted OP in quotes and went on to explain OP how the way I criticized his low effort post was not OK and that's why "only critized" is something that has to be taken with a grain of salt. This post got removed 7 Days after I posted it. This shows me that the moderation (on the NA boards at least) is out of whack. For 7 days nobody took offense on that post. And suddenly it was not OK. I even had some followups so I doubt the person who I argued with reported me. So I guess a mod stumbled across and just moderated it after the discussion had long ended. In the end I find his approach OK, it is actually what I am arguing for but the long delay struck me as "Something is not right with moderation atm" >Personally I don't think so (mostly because I was always the most "strict" moderator and I do not moderate actively anymore), but do you have any specific examples (except this thread) that lead you to this conclusion? I absolutely agree with you. You maybe remember me I am on and off these boards for 7 years now. And I never was upset with moderation. I am not even upset with mods now. I just thought it would be good to raise awareness. I also know my examples come from the NA boards and the mods there come from another culture, in some detailed use another approach and the mods are other people than in the EU boards. I just recently started to see more complains about mods and I am afraid with new mods stepping in that the great culture we had is skewing a little to system in which power is not abused, but used to frequently.
> Ofc I do not know all about this case but it struck me as odd anyways. Additionally to that, I see many complaints about the moderator staff. there is nothing else to know about... what I said is literally all that happened. someone was asking for video-game suggestions that he could run on his computer because his gpu fried. I suggested a couple of games and in the end I said "if all else fails, you could try [game 1] and [game 2]". and then 30 minutes later I got banned. after contacting support, they simply told me that they would keep the suspension because I deserved it and they gave me no further explanation.
: Riot support behavior and an apology
that story is freakin hilarious though. "oh, people keep telling me K*S and I thought they liked me. but today I found out that K*S does NOT mean Kiss" as for the player support... it only proves how bad the system really is. "hey guys, let's build a team of unsupervised mods... what could go wrong?"

: this is a great feature. like yall complaining, but some ppl might go teemo jg and feed.
what's your point? people can also go Lucian bot and feed anyway. just let people play what they want. if someone wants to troll, they will troll regardless of their pick so banning their "troll-pick" won't make a difference, it will only encourage them to troll even more.
: Will be Revive spell back in game?
Revive was removed from the game because according to riot it was a summoner spell that was counterproductive. their argument was: you are not supposed to die in the game. a summoner spell that requires you to die before you can use it is pretty dumb. aside from the Karthus niche, only trolls would pick revive in order to feed even more. good players should try to avoid death and therefore a revive spell has no place in the game. so... revive will probably never come back.
