: Dev team assistance needed - Request access to large data for university dissertation
As others mentioned, you can look whether or not it's possible to do this by using Riots API (though as far as I know you would need to give Riot Games a website you're planning on programming for them to give you an API code). In any case, the Riot Support redirecting you for such a matter here sounds weird for me, since they usually only redirect people to the Boards if you have any ideas that could potentially change League of Legends or if they are not allowed to give you access to something, but if that could also change if the majority of the community wants access to it (though in that case it'd make more sense for them to just state so) or... things like that. I just don't believe you'll really get through to someone here on the boards properly. It could also be they just misread what you wrote in your ticket, but since I do not have access to your ticket, you can probably judge that best yourself. If you believe that is the case, try leaving another response to your ticket and they will take another look at your request. Now, if you think that neither you nor the Riot Support misread anything and for some reason, the boards really are the right place for this, I can at least give you the personal tip to post this on the NA Boards instead, since the Dev team resides there and if they are going to look somewhere, it's definitely going to be there (though your post may also drown quicker if it's ignored since there is a lot of activity on the NA Boards): https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/

: Suggestion for Riot's communication with the player base
All I can tell you is that they do address these issues as far as I am aware, but just not on the EU Boards, because the balancing team is in NA. In any case, I suggest you to keep a look at the Dev Corner over there, where for example Meddler posts his "Quick Gameplay Thoughts" every now and then, in which they also reply to comments and all that: https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner
: Nowhere does it say that they unlock "almost everything". There are rewards for the streamers and other content creators but that most certainly isn't one of the rewards.
While it doesn't state it clearly in there, there are tons of videos by content creators about it, and also posts about it on the boards and reddit, here are a few examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8o6QBI8RTB0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klwP4midzeg https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/6vsjtm/league_unlocked_suddenly_unlocked_every_champion/ https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-discussion/GMepR5sy-league-unlocked As the posts also say, this isn't just for content creators who are part of League of Legends' Partner Program, but also for events and internet cafés who've contacted Riot Games, though I think the internet café part goes only for North America right now (at least going by what someone working at the Riot Support told me like half a month ago).
: You weren't specific with your question though. You can get most skins and icons from past years but things like team icons and ward skins are something you can't get anymore after they leave the shop. Also, the ward skin you seem to ask about in your ticket is the ward skin for 2016, not 2015 like you claim in this post. Could be my mistake though, i don't understand the language. >how is this fair to give streamers every single skin but i cant have one you lied to me about. The streamers don't get accounts like that. Voyboy is a former professional player and professional players have fully unlocked accounts. Not streamers.
Actually, Riot Games has a Partner Program to promote Streamers and such since... not too long ago and if you're a part of it, they unlock almost everything (except some skins like human ryze or black alistar) on your account.

However, people do get punished for intentional feeding, at least that's what I know. > I don't mean to point fingers at anyone, neither do I know if these people actually intentionally fed or just had a bad game if they were claiming so: > https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behaviour-en/EFQaAb3x-one-bad-game-14-day-ban-seriously-riot > https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behaviour-en/u3FyE9Lk-i-got-rekted-totally-in-a-game-banned-for-intentional-feeding > https://boards.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behaviour-en/TIEr0seg-riot-please-wtf So You are volunteering, don't know what Riot is actually doing to improve our experience, uneducated on the matter, people asked multiple times to cut the "shit", yet You continued saying exactly the same things. How come You do not know how, when and why Riot bans any of the "trolls" or whatsoever, but are dogmatically standing behind it, with no clear evidence to support it? I think I understand why the community has a right to be mad. Especially now more than ever.
Ah, I do know that they ban intentional feeders, as I stated. Obviously, I don't know every case, I only know of those cases where people decide to tell everyone what they did. Obviously, I also know that not every intentional feeder gets banned, but I think I also explained why that is and why I can relate to it. It's not that I don't think that there are problems, it's just that I can't think of any realistic way of ever fixing the problem and just complaining won't help anyone, especially when Riot Games is obviously already aware that their system doesn't work 100% perfectly. It's just like the weather always being rainy and stormy, it's annoying, gets everything wet, you need to dress more and going out in that kind of weather is just a pain and all you can do is complain about it, but complaining about it will obviously not make the sun shine. You could think of better solutions to the problem, like changing weather or whatever, but most of us don't have the capabilities to seriously come up with such a solution, so we need to leave it to those who actually know how to come up with solutions to the problem. ######Btw lemme just say that it's kinda weird getting a reply on a 9 months old topic
: > but it really, really, annoys me when people just throw the concept of good sportsmanship out of the window, just to stroke their e-peen that little bit more. it's not unsportsmanlike to not end a game, wtf... they're having fun, it's the whole purpose of the game, not their fault they are hardstomping or your team won't surrender
I think OP meant such scenarios as the enemies standing in front of your nexus, spamming emotes, not hitting the nexus and instead killing you over and over again while writing things like "easy" or "surrender" in the chat, which doesn't really sound very sportsmanlike if you ask me. Stomping the enemy is one thing, it can happen without you even wanting it, but "flexing" on the enemy because you stomp them is just ruining the fun for others completely.

: > or everyone on your team honoring someone Why does that boost your honor progress?
I'm guessing because if everyone on your team honored someone, there's a very high chance that everyone on your team deserved to be honored to some extent as well.
person (EUW)
: Everyone on your team honored a teammate! You got a little extra Honor progress this game.
While getting honored, or everyone on your team honoring someone does boost your honor progress, you still get the *most* progress out of simply playing (without being toxic, if you're toxic and get reported, your honor progress will also be slowed down).

: Ehmmm, what? Your job is to win the game. I don't know why do people take this personally, if you're a weak player then you should be abused 24/7 on the lane. Even more funny, some people think it is against the rules or moral laws to get focused on.

: Ok, so I say asking for reports can get you banned. Than you correct me by explaining that it can get you banned? :D Also nice to know they removed the value on reports
Hmm, no. It won't get you punished, at least in most cases. Only if you're for example asking others to report someone for being an idiot or something like that.
: No, but asking for reports can get you banned. Reporting for no reason will only de-value your real reports
Asking for reports will not get anyone banned or anything. Only if it's used in a context that is insulting or harassing someone. If someone is running it down mid, like literally intentionally feeding, and you ask people to report him for that, that's okay (though it still doesn't serve any purpose, because reports all have the same value, if someone didn't break the rules, 9 people can report him and nothing will happen, but if someone broke the rules and only 1 person reports him, they'll be punished). If someone tower dived really badly and died in the process, and then you ask for them to be reported for intentional feeding and trolling, that's harassment because he wasn't actually intentionally feeding and you're basically just accusing someone of something they never did. Reports don't lose value anymore either. Report value was abolished some time ago, you don't need to worry anymore about who to report and all that, your reports will always have the same value, the system will check each and every report.

: Should I be careful with using VPN?
No, there should be no problem usually. Riot Games doesn't just ban people for logging in from different IPs, they look at more than just that. They know that some people use VPNs, go on vacations or move to different places. Even in the rare case that you should get a security ban or such because Riot Games is suspecting something, you'll just need to send a ticket to the Riot Support and explain the situation: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

He probably coded some stuff that makes everyone who uses the boards upvote that comment, probably to see if everyone's profiles and stuff are properly working or if there are some issues with things. Since he helps develop stuff for the boards, there may have been some reason for it like him changing some things and testing if everything still works. Anyways, as the post says, I wouldn't really mind it, doesn't seem to be anything to worry about.

Your whole story seems... really weird. How likely is it for you to buy a random account and for that account to actually be yours... but from 4 years ago? And also, why are you just now contacting Riot Games? Your account was "hacked" 4 years ago, so why didn't you... message them back then? Anyways, no matter if I believe you or not, we can't help you. If the Riot Support refuses to give you your account, they'll surely have their reasons for it and if I'm honest, your whole story just seems very weird and unlikely to have happened this way.

: why play this game?
I play it with my friends, for fun, but since my friends almost only have time during the weekend, I don't play it that often anymore. We're also playing other games than just League of Legends by now. So, while I may not be the best example since I only rarely play it, I still do play it and if I do, I don't really care if I win or lose and I don't really play ranked either, I just play for the fun of playing League of Legends.
: So basically if the owner of a club is permanently banned riot will transfer ownership to an officer as it says in the body of the article? This is what I wanna know for sure. edt: ty for replying and for correcting the link.
Well, yes, but as stated in the article, you'll need to contact the Riot Support for that: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

When accessing the page, I get a "404 The page you were looking for doesn't exist" so I'm guessing that no, it's no longer valid. On the other hand, if you're looking for information to clubs, this article is still valid: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/207994746-Guide-to-Clubs

As far as I know, Riot Games only sponsors tournaments, if you're planning on holding a tournament at your LAN-party, you can read through this: https://events.euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/content/faq As stated there, they don't provide physical goods though, they only provide RP prizes, xp boosts and the triumphant ryze skin, but I don't really know these things all that good, so it's possible they also provide physical goods by now or in some exceptions. Anyways, you can also read through this and see if it fits anything you're planning on doing: https://events.euw.leagueoflegends.com/events/new Other than that, I can't really help you. If you have any other questions, it's better if you send them to the Riot Support: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
: you blocked my account
Sorry, but no one here can really tell you what exactly the ban was for. You'll need to send a ticket to the Riot Support: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new >u dont have the right to block my account without an evidences Actually, they do. The Terms of Use you accept when playing LoL state the following: "Three different people/entities can suspend or terminate your account: 2.1.1. You. You may terminate or suspend your account at any time by contacting us at support@riotgames.com. 2.1.2. Us.We may terminate or suspend your account if we determine, in our sole discretion, that: (a) you have violated any part of this Agreement; (b) we have stopped offering the Riot Services in your region; or (c) doing so would be in the best interests of our community, the Riot Services, or the rights of a third party. We may make such determinations, among other ways, by using automated systems and machine learning tools." What this means, especially regarding 2.1.2. (c), is that if Riot Games deems it to be in their interest, they can ban you whenever they want. Of course, they won't just do that, there'd probably be a big uproar if they just randomly banned people for fun, it wouldn't get them anything. They'd only lose money by doing that. However, if it's needed, they could ban whoever they want. >even if i did something wrong u must warn me first not block me like that As the above also states regarding bans, they do not need to warn you or anything. They can straight up permanently ban anyone. In cases of 3rd party programs or such (people using for example scripts) this is also what they usually do.

I don't think they'll really answer you and I don't think it's really necessary either. It's more of a thing where you just need to judge the risks yourself, but in this specific case, I'm like 99% sure the software is fine and all, but I can't guarantee anything. As far as I know, Skinspotlights also works together with Riot Games to some extent.
Lari (EUNE)
: How can someone do this?
As far as I know, this is what they usually use: https://www.skinspotlights.com/p/creator-suite.html This should also, to my knowledge, be pretty save to use, though you should still inform yourself a bit about 3rd party softwares and such before using it: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/225266848 It's made by the same person who runs this youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/SkinSpotlights

I talked with rioter about this. Trust me they actually preffer if people don't speak at all and just write basic info. U can gain less exp for your honor just because someone reported u. and u know how ppl like to report players who are 0/4 even if they're trying to win the game.
Yeah, writing basic info is usually better since it means you focus more on the game and also won't distract your teammates too much. If you want to win games, it's perfect. However, simply getting reported won't mean your honor levels up slower. Only if the report was found to be valid by Riots Instant Feedback System will your honor level advance slower. If the system checked the report and found it to be invalid, nothing at all will happen. Unless Riots system checked the report, nothing at all will happen either and usually, it takes 10 to 15 minutes for Riot Games to check a report.
Shädäm (EUNE)
: I know Emissaries believe everything Riot says, but I've played this game long enough, and encountered way more trolls than I should. And from all those afks, intentional feeders and flamers, I only know a few that actually got banned after they trolled my games. Riots system lacks human insight when it comes to punishing trolls. All they look at is stats, build and chat log, and if all of them are in the "bad game" zone, they just let it be. Im not even gonna argue on the systems effectiveness, because this system already proved me everything. I've seen too much players getting away with mildly tremendous stats, just because they didnt do those obvious troll actions, and according to Riot, running into enemy base or under enemy turret defines trolling and amything different is either not trolling or a "bad game" And lets not talk about toxicity. If we were given a tool to ignore and defend against flaming, then why is flaming punished most agressively? Meanwhile we are exposed to 30-40 minute long stressful games which we cannot surrender because of one player who is determined to make our game hell. And after this they get away woth it, and Riot still dares to send Emissaries to tell us they all got what they deserve. The only thing I hate more than the trash of the community, is Riot lying to us every second.
>And lets not talk about toxicity. If we were given a tool to ignore and defend against flaming, then why is flaming punished most agressively? It's not punished "most agressively". In fact, if Riot *detects* an intentional feeder for example, they give them an immediate 14 day ban and a permanent ban upon continuing. Flaming first goes through: - a 10 Game Chat Restriction - a 25 Game Chat Restriction - a 14 day ban with a message clearly stating a permanent ban will come upon further flaming and only then will they actually issue a permanent ban. It's different for racism, death threats and hate speech in general, these types of behaviors skip to the 14 day ban stage immediately. The reason for this is that the community reports these kinds of behaviors the most, indicating they do not wish to see it, at all, in their games. However, 75% of the people who get a chat restriction already improve their behavior afterwards and don't even have to go through a 14 day ban or similar. You'll also have to beware that it's not like Riot only punishes flamers because they think it'd be nice to do, if there existed no one to report the flamers in the first place, they wouldn't get punished. However, since Riot Games sees that the majority of the community reports toxic behavior like flaming, it's obvious that players wish for this kind of behavior to vanish and as such, Riot Games somehow needs to get these flamers to stop flaming or remove them. The way they're currently doing it has proven to be the most effective so far, that's why they're using it. >Meanwhile we are exposed to 30-40 minute long stressful games which we cannot surrender because of one player who is determined to make our game hell. I'm 100% sure you can surrender with 4 people voting yes, since that's the majority of the people in one team. You only need 5 players if you want to do an early surrender. >And after this they get away woth it, and Riot still dares to send Emissaries to tell us they all got what they deserve. Just to clear up possible misconceptions, I was not sent by Riot Games and I do not work for them in any way. I'm part of Riot Games' Volunteer program, but due to the nature of a volunteer program, I do not get paid or anything and we do not work for Riot Games either, we're independent of them. Riot Games could tell us that we should tell people to buy their merch and we could still ignore them and just... not do that. --- Also, yes, I'm not going to argue about their effectiveness of punishing intentional feeders on purpose. It's a given that their current system is definitely not the best and lacks a lot of improvement. However, if I were to simply complain about their system, I couldn't really achieve a whole lot, it wouldn't fix anything. On the other hand, I also can't think of any other better solutions than their current system. Hiring people to watch millions of games being played every day 24/7? I very much doubt Riot Games has *that* much money for this to not end up in them losing a lot of money without being able to somehow get it back. A better automatic system than the current one? Well, I can't program, but I can imagine that coding a program analyzing playstyles and determining what is intentional feeding and what is not to be pretty hard, because the main difference between intentional feeding and simply feeding is the intention behind it. To 100% accurately detect someones intention, you'd need to analyze the processes in their brain and their thoughts. This means if done inaccurately, Riot Games would ban a lot of innocent players, and because the first punishment intentional feeders receive is a 14 day ban, that'd be really harsh on the innocent players. I think that the amount of players complaining about getting unfairly punished could very well be higher than the current amount of people complaining about "no one getting punished at all". That means Riot Games needs to find similar patterns between intentional feeders. Now, if running under a tower is intentional feeding, what about bronze players who end up dying in a stupid tower dive? If running to the enemy base as soon as the game starts is intentional feeding, what about someone trying a proxy tactic? And there are probably many more problems than just those I could think of right out of my head while writing this.
Shädäm (EUNE)
: League community
Let's view it from a different point of view: What exactly would be the difference between you and your Shaco support or the enemy who flamed you if you were to just flame back? There would be no difference, you'd just join their cycle and others would only perceive you as another toxic teammate, just like your Shaco support or the flaming enemy. That's also why you'd end up getting punished, just like the Shaco support who went afk will get a leaverbuster, or the toxic enemy team would end up getting first a 10 games chat restriction and if they continued a 25 games chat restriction, a 14 day ban and in the end, if they are still toxic, a permanent ban. You aren't expected to "respect your haters and bullies", but to handle it professionally and instead of seeking personal revenge, staying calm and reporting them to the proper authorities, in this case, Riot Games. You don't have to respect them, you only need to stay quiet and keep calm.
: My acc locked due to suspicious activities...
The only thing you can do is wait for the Riot Support to send a reply to your ticket. This can take a few days and seeing as it's Sunday right now and not a whole lot of people are probably working, you'll most likely have to wait till tomorrow for an answer. No one else except them can do anything here.

It's not really a whole different for other sections at Riot Games, like E-Sports. A lot of E-Sports is handled by Riot Games in Berlin, where they stay most of the time, even if the actual HQ for Riot Games (EU) is in Dublin. Only for really important stuff that... they may need to do in Dublin do they travel there. I don't think it's a big problem in this day and age, seeing as they probably can use chat tools or such to communicate about the most. Meetings don't necessarily need to be face-to-face either these days, they can use software for that as well.
Lari (EUNE)
: Are you serious? So using the in game chat at all is report-able? I don't understand this are not we supposed to say anything anymore? Provoking the enemy is ban-able? I really don't get you guys, why don't you disable chat if we are not allowed to say anything? Do you like restricting and punish people? Do you feel powerful doing so?
reportable =/= punishable You can report for whatever you want. If you believe someone is using the chat in a wrong way, sure, report them. If you believe provoking isn't allowed, sure, report them. However, if you feel like provoking should be allowed, don't report for it. It's as easy as that. However, reporting for something doesn't automatically mean Riot Games will punish for it. If others agree with you, Riot won't punish for it, after all, they *need* reports in order to punish people. If the whole community were to suddenly say harassment is okay and *no one* would ever report anyone for harassment again, Riot wouldn't punish for it anymore, at least not the way the system is currently. Maybe they'd reshape the system, maybe they'd just close their servers, but most likely, they'd just accept the changes in the community and would try to appeal to the new interests of the community to keep running as a company. If *everyone* were to report people for posting question marks in the chat, Riot would most likely start punishing for it. If they wouldn't, they'd also face the same problem of their community going away, ranting and all that, in large masses, because they don't agree with Riots' policies. They'd *need* to punish for it in order to keep running as a company. Whether or not these scenarios are realistic is up for you to decide. I'm just stating the possibilities and what is most likely to happen, and what has already happened in fact. You see, "gg ez" wasn't punished for back when Riot developed the Instant Feedback System. Back then, this term didn't even exist. Only later did it come into existence. However, a majority of the community believed that "gg ez" was unsportsmanlike and they reported people for it. In the end, Riot decided to start punishing people for writing "gg ez" in the chat. Their system is designed to automatically pick up on these trends and then send it to Riot for review.
: if question marking is punishable, why emote, mastery , laugh, taunt, dance bm's are not? it's the same thing. You might aswell remove chat and any possible BM from the game.
reportable =/= punishable I mentioned that you can and *should* report people for it if you think they should stop that kind of behavior for whatever reason. If the majority of the community ends up reporting people for posting "?" to trigger the enemy or such, they'll punish for it and if the majority doesn't report people for posting "?" to trigger the enemy, then they won't punish for it. Basically, I felt like the OP wanted to search for a potential rule that was broken or something like this to justify their report, when really, you don't need to break any rules or something to justify a report. We should shape the rules, not the rules us. I didn't express my opinion on the matter, if it should be punished or things like that. I don't feel like the OP intended for the discussion to be about whether or not *you* would report for it, but rather if the *OP* **can** report for it.

: This is actually pretty interesting to know. I was never really sure whether it's a learning AI, or if it's just a number check (you have X, you get punished for it) - if this makes sense. The thing is (also the problem) that it's not just a "?" in chat, but the whole behaviour in the game (maybe he was spamming the chat, asking us to ff as well, mastery spamming, and other micro stuff that makes sense in the context of the game, but might not be for a programme, or without watching a replay). Also, if that "?" happened due to something genunely weird ({{champion:412}} {{item:3690}} still going off after {{champion:69}} ulti - which technically had to be cast first, but it's not often you see this interaction). If you report that person, but for something else, maybe the learning process won't be exact...? (I guess this "evens out" the more data you have, but I'm just _pretending_ that I understand how this works. Still find it interesting, though.) By the way, does typing anything into the commentary have any effect at all? There were a bunch of times I explained what happened in-game, and provided screenshots and/or translations of what someone was saying (e.g. he was swearing/flaming in my language, not English), while other times I just checked the boxes as I really couldn't be bothered to deal with them more. > Even if something does not end up getting punished for, sending reports isn't only a way of punishing those that Riot wants to punish, but to also present your opinion on what should be punished. I'm sure you'll never release this data, but it'd be so interesting to see it (the general ideas, by regions/servers, elo, game type, demographic,what's really high on the list from all the misbehaviours). I'm sure there are concepts that are both wanted to be punished and not (or should be based on context somehow), e.g. starting a surrender vote. I know I started a bunch as I couldn't see as doing any damage, and getting back from a 10-20-30 kills deficit, just like I refused to surrender games where I thought we had a fighting chance, and I knew I had the damage. I also think about reporting someone for a lost game - if we couldn't do anything, it sucks, but there's nothing to do about it. But when someone ragequits, or tried really hard not to help win, or goes afk in a way that they won't get an afk warning, and the system doesn't acknowledge them as afk (e.g. someone waiting to take the chickens even though they are not up and the enemy just by the way casually walks into our base and we're 4v5, because he went into a rage mode). My personal pet peeve is when someone's not hitting the Nexus. I've lost close games before with high death timers, because we were ending, but my team mates decided to suicide into the enemy fountain, or not hit it and just dancing there. The enemy came back up, killed them as they were still dancing and ended the game. They might've thought it was funny, or it was a sure win, so who cares, but in my mind, they were intentionally throwing the game. There's also this weird idea some players have (I've seen it happen), that regardless of you inting, swearing, or flaming, "it's just ARAM, you cannot report me". I can. I did. You can have fun, and be (semi-) competitive, _and_ not flame either teams. I know, it's crazy talk. Who would believe such a thing? I miss the days when I didn't have to report someone in almost every game (I might've 2,5-3k games this season, and I'm quite sure more than half of it ended with a report), and I could honor my team mate, and an enemy, because it was a good game. Also, I'd like to see data on whether and how much of someone being a flamer affects their team and the chances of winning (that game and overall). But I'm not sure it exists besides my personal experiences. (Not to mention - and I'm taking the negative side here -, that some forms of trolling have been legitimized by Riot themselves, so you "can" do it, but that doesn't mean your team mates will like it (regardless of who's right), or even that you'll win. You wanna play inting {{champion:14}}, {{item:3091}} {{item:3091}} {{item:3091}} {{item:3091}} {{item:3091}} {{item:3091}} {{champion:131}}, you can do it. You don't even have to do any research as to how or why. The line between "meta", "off-meta", not the strongest picks, situational ones, and trolling are getting blurrier in my opinion, and that could lead down to a rabbit hole.)
You seem to have a slightly wrong idea, I'm not a Rioter, I'm part of Riot Games' Volunteer Program. I can only give you information Riot Games has officially released, not just because I need to keep it hidden or something, but mainly because I don't have access to it either. If you want to know more about the Volunteer program, you can check out our website (though, as a disclaimer, it's outdated in some areas): https://en.volu-eu.org/ ---- Regarding the learning system and context, the official stance is of course that it takes context into account and I can't really tell you to which extent it does this. It's entirely possible it'll misinterpret certain things or not interpret certain things at all. For further reference, here's a comment by former Rioter Lyte on it (back when he still was a Rioter and worked on the system): https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/36ow3s/new_player_reform_system_heads_into_testing/crh580c/ ---- About the comments you send with reports, they do matter, mostly because Riot Games will always hand-pick cases to go through, to sort of check if there were any mistakes. In these cases, they also read through what is written in the comment, which may help them when deciding certain things. For further reference, here's the source: https://en.volu-eu.org/viewer.php page 124, first question >Hi! Regarding post-game reports, does adding a comment make any real difference? Will it increase the chance of consequenses? Knut Erlingson Rehaug >Adding comments to end of game reports are extremely helpful. Player Support members are constantly reviewing cases by hand and use those comments to help isolate behaviors and review specific parts of cases. --- I can't really... give you data on the rest, because as I said, I'm not a Rioter. However, Riot used to have a message in their loading screen, among the tips, that stated "Players that break the Summoner's Code lose 23% more games." so toxicity probably does have an impact on winning/losing games. Or winning/losing games has an impact on toxicity, we don't know. --- >(Not to mention - and I'm taking the negative side here -, that some forms of trolling have been legitimized by Riot themselves, so you "can" do it, but that doesn't mean your team mates will like it (regardless of who's right), or even that you'll win.

The line between "meta", "off-meta", not the strongest picks, situational ones, and trolling are getting blurrier in my opinion, and that could lead down to a rabbit hole.) Riot Maple made a post about the Inting Sion strategy specifically: https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/9lmg47/inting_sion_is_doing_more_harm_than_good/e790zkq Basically, this means as long as people are genuinely doing their best to win, there's nothing wrong with it. I don't think "the line" is "getting blurrier", it's always been blurry, because to detect with a 100% accuracy if someone is intentionally feeding or just playing off-meta, you'd need to look inside of someones brain and see their thoughts.

: Is typing '?' in all chat when enemy misplays reportable?
For sure, yes, you can report it. I can't tell you if it'll result in a punishment, but generally, there are no downsides to reporting it, so you should do it. On the other hand, even if it's not punished yet, Riots instant feedback system learns from reports. If it sees a lot of players report a certain type of behavior, it'll go and send the analyzed data for a Rioter to review and then, it may be added and the analyzed behavior may be punished for in the future. Even if something does not end up getting punished for, sending reports isn't only a way of punishing those that Riot wants to punish, but to also present your opinion on what should be punished.
: I wouldn't report that. The more reports you post, the less value they have so I wouldn't waste them on that. Better just to report the toxic flamers instead.
This is no longer the case. You can report people as much as you want, they won't lose value, at most, it'll only take more time for the system to analyze reports due to their amount increasing. As a reference, here's a comment by Riot Tantram about it: https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/player-behavior-moderation/9VrUtrJo-being-solo-and-having-a-team-report?comment=00000000000200000000000000000000000000000000 ######(yes, there are posts, also by the Riot Support, stating the opposite, I asked around for that, but my most plausible explanation is that they're just outdated, wouldn't be the first time either)

There is that feature now? You learn something new every day oof

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.

: Unfair Behavior System
Sorry, but I fear there's nothing you can do for your friend. However, your friend can contact the Riot Support and they'll look at his case again: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new If they don't remove it and he wants his punishment explained a bit more in detail, he's free to come to the boards himself and share his chat logs with us. Also, instant permanent bans are very rare. Are you sure your friend didn't get a 14 day ban for similar behavior in the past?
: Try here https://www.telusinternational.com/careers/?INTCMP=Main_Nav_Careers. At the right side you can find the countries where you can work at. I did the interview for Bulgaria https://telusinternational.avature.net/careers/SearchJobsBulgaria League of Legends Player Support because back then they were looking for Bulgarian/English speaking staff. They never called me back though.
Those are for working at Telus though, which is not Riot Games. I mean, they are the Riot Support, but not... Riot Games.
: So when i say robin williams commited suicide, i wished him death? lol
No, but if you talk to Robbie Williams and tell him "Commit suicide please", you are. "Commit suicide" is an imperative.

: Swear words, flame and language filter
Language filters aren't omnipotent. In a global game like League of Legends, where people who speak hundreds of different languages meet each other, having a language filter that'll really work good is next to impossible. The language filter not only doesn't censor some words, it may censor some words that are completly normal in some languages, and may be an insult in another. Beyond that, you don't need the filter disabled to tell when someone is insulting you necessarily. For example, someone could write the following: "%%%% yo mom" "you %%%%%%% %%%%%%" You may not necessarily know what these words are, but you *will* know they're insults, most likely targeted at you in some way. There are also certain phrases, like "commit suicide" that may not be censored because "commit" is a normal word and "suicide" also is a normal word. Only when you combine them do they become death wishes.

Nothing's wrong with it, but I'll never do it :^)

: Time doesn't really matter in this system, to drop punishment tier you need to actively play and behave well while yo do that. I checked your match history and it doesn't look like this account was abandoned, so maybe you didn't show any sign of improvement throughout those years. Or you showed some extreme toxicity in those last few games, something that warranted complete skip of all lesser punishments .You should share your chatlogs

: How many games must you play on average to reach lvl 30?
> If you're a typical player who gets FWotD every four games, it'll take 152 games to reach level 30, which is much faster. If you get FWotD every six games, it'll take 166 games. If you're a rare, super-hardcore player who gets a FWotD once every eight games, it'll take you 174 games to level up from 1–30. ######(FWotD = First Win of the Day) https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/hAaYMrEs-leveling-and-rewards-early-impressions-and-adjustments

: oh so its even worse LOL. They see your support ticket but just simply copy paste a pre-written message because its easier and they don't want some extra work to look into your case
Yes, basically. The time they'd spend on writing you a special message, that they in 90% of the cases wouldn't even need to because the pre-written message already answers the concerns, could instead be spent on sending messages to like 5 other people.
