: Here are my thoughts on your reasons why you disagree with your penalty: > 1) There is a language filter so why get muted over curse words? Because RIOT wants to get rid of cursing / toxic behavior as a whole. It's their game, and they want to achieve a "clean" environment in their game. It's just a decision they made, and there's no way to change that. Fun fact: Almost all other online games punish cursing too, it's really standard and mostly expected from customers/consumers. > 2) Standing up for yourself shouldn't be punished. You weren't standing up or defending yourself, you were shooting back - and that's not a way to deal with flaming people, since it will only make it worse. Asking them to stop would be defending - if they don't listen it's better to mute them and don't answer them at all. Talking back will only drag your and the other persons attention from the game. > 3) In 3 out of 5 games people start flaming if they are not winning, so why isn't the mute system working? Just because you encounter people flaming doesn't mean that the punishment system isn't working. You experienced it yourself, you can't write anymore, so you can't flame. In addition, the next time you'll get punished it's going to be a 25 game restriction, and after this comes a 14 day suspension, followed by a permanent suspension if you don't change your behavior. > 4) Inb4 "too much chatting", why not remove it completely and add an improved pinging system? I don't see the option to turn off the chat That's what RIOT did last (?) year. They gave us the option to completely disable the chat, while giving us improved pinging, for example the "enemies have vision here" ping. So we've got "enemy is missing", "I need help", "I'm going there", "danger", "standard ping" and "enemies have vision here". What else would you like, if I may ask? > 5) Leaving verbal abuse aside, restricting a player's communications capabilities only hurts the team. Pings are limited, chat is limited too. League doesn't reward passive play, in my knowledge. In my experience, it doesn't. I've seen like 5 people using the chat to communicate regarding the game in like the last 3 months. It can work, it is intended to be used like that, but it's up to the people to use it like that. And sadly, I don't see it being used like that that often. It's mainly used for some "general" communication, like banter, shittalking, saying stuff like gg, wp, gj, lol, ????, and all that kind of stuff. And for me, that's totally fine. I've made some nice friends through the chat. Keep in mind, that's all from my experience :)
Thank you very much for your reply, I really appreciate your points.

: You can turn off the chat in the options.
Would you mind guiding me where that option is? I only have Enable Language filter, Warn Me When I Click A Link In Chat , Display "More Unread" Bar or Show Me New Friend Request Toasts.

: In all Honesty..... I have no idea why you got a chat ban. I've had people flame me so much harder than this, i'm talking hate speech, hard hate speech, curses, full capslock polish cursing, you name it. They got away with it, but you... I don't know why you got a chat ban. You weren't even flaming anyone. You were just responding to flame. Heck, i've flamed a couple of times much harder than you and i didn't get a chat ban... Contact support have them review this manually.
I was thinking about that, but it's too much of a hassle, really. I'll just stop using chat altogether.
: Fake reports don't matter. Even if your whole team reported you, you won't get punished if you didn't do anything. Here's your mistakes : * You were spamming the chat (sending tons of messages) * You flamed. Example : "no support" * You threatened of reporting them and asking others to report them All those 3 things are punishable. If someone is trash to you, you mute him and report him at the end of the game. Doesn't matter who started first or who is more wrong, if you break the rules, you get punished.
I understand, thank you for your time.
