: Would appear that the US is going for a total economic sanction against a number of countries - Iran and Syria included - and that will prevent any US company doing any business or trade. Some people are wondering why a new server could not just be added, but it would make no difference as although the servers are located in different areas, they are all still tied to the company ultimately. I'm presuming that the US elected to proceed with stricter sanctions as opposed to their alternative initial approach which was military retaliation. We live in a mad world.

As an Iranian player I don't blame Riot, but the US government. But if what you're saying is true and the new strict sanctions are for the sole reason of denying any business trades, Iranian players never had a chance on that to begin with! Riot has never had a business with Iranian players through any possible means - since Iranian banks are not supported by Riot(or any other country - so fair!) and other middle companies never allowed Iranians to use their services either! So what exactly is it they are restricting? Our FUN? I mean I'm a real guy and I know people in this world are more obsessed with NightBlue3 drama than supporting and standing up for justice and I can't make this a political discussion but the US government represents the people of The United States and it has never done any good to my people. I'm so done with this but I believe justice will find US one day and I hope it doesn't affect the lives of innocent American people the way it did mine.

: why am I not allowed to play the game?
As a fellow Iranian player I totally feel you. I mean it's such an unfair decision I don't even get what it has to do with video games! Having to play with a 200 ms latency for years just to find yourself denied your daily little dose of fun, probably because some country wants to invade you and you're not ok with it. it's just such a huge mess and believe me the world is gonna have more people who care about a #FreeTyler1 campaign more than an entire nation! So while we're at it, try logging in to the game with a vpn and disconnecting afterwards to bypass the authentication restriction and see if it works(Haven't tried it yet myself).
: > investigate the situation for 5 minutes What exactly would that investigation look like? Would you provide an army of workers always on call to judge these cases as soon as they happen? > if he's wrong, ban him for a week! How do you decide if he's wrong? What if he think he's right, but you think he's wrong? Won't you just have more "I was banned for no reason" complaints?

I reported a guy in support tickets twice in like a month for trolling in ARAM and he got no punishment! He buys no items at all and walks around the base the entire game! No matter how you define trolling, this guy is doing it... And he's still active and he still plays most of his ARAM games with no items and no engagements! I have no idea how I'm supposed to let you guys know that this guy is TROLLING! the answer I got both times is that you can't let me know of the result because of privacy concerns but I watched streamers report someone and get informed of the detailed punishment in 5 minutes! It leads me to believe that this is not a matter of privacy; it's just that Riot doesn't have time to get to my problem! The same way it doesn't have time to care about the simple 5 minutes I have to waste for some troll behavior -if only it happened once a day! Riot doesn't care because that's easier! Yet I see streamers complain about losing LP on their main role, while dodging a game where they're assigned another role, and BOOOM the positional ranks are gone because they're challengers and I'm some ordinary guy trying to have some fun! And as of the matter of deciding if someone is trolling; I don't see it as a diplomatic affair! Junglar doesn't gank your lane because you have heal on top lane? TROLLING! the case in this topic? DEFINITELY TROLLING! I play Ranked and the top laner bans my pick(ADC) and says fck you all? TROLLING! Someone in lobby says he doesn't like the random champ he got in ARAM and will sit around and watch the others play? doesn't dodge? gets reported twice? you say you investigate? you see he hasn't bought items in most of his ARAM games? TROLLING DUDE! HE'S TROLLING! How am I supposed to define something obvious? I lose my game because of that guy! the post owner has to wait like 10 more minutes because of someone else? OK it wouldn't kill him... I agree! at least not as long as it happens like once a week! But when he takes his time to submit a ticket, make a topic, come up with suggestions JUST TO HELP YOU CREATE A HEALTHIER GAME ENVIRONMENT, you can't just tell him to DEAL WITH IT! that's more toxic than the trolling players! It's your job to come up with ideas to fix the game that is making money for you, yet players are helping and you just don't care!
: Greetings. Obviously this behavior was not cool. Dodging that game is definitely understandable. It's really debateable to what extend you were "punished"... Cause waiting 5 Minutes probably won't kill you. I can understand that you feel like you came out short here, of course it sucks. ---- But I'd like you to actually think about this problem! **How would you avoid such a situation if you were in charge of the game?** Would you allow dodging under any circumstances? Would you allow dodging only if people troll? Then how exactly do you define trolling? And how do you build a system to differenciate?

And how do you build a system to differenciate? Ask that player why he's dodging and then investigate the situation for 5 minutes which probably won't kill you either and then if he's wrong, ban him for a week! but if he's right, punish the guilty! It's not a matter of those 5 minutes! It's a matter of the guilty and toxic trolls getting by, while you have to suffer for it! And believe me a 10 minutes punishment(considering Queue time and champ select and stuff) is a lot of time for someone trying to have an hour of fun a day! And I define trolling as acting in a way that doesn't fit the situation... Declaring ill intentions to get to people and vent your frustrations... getting assigned top laner and wandering between your mid and outer turret early game! going Dark Harvest Blitz support and last hitting your ADC's solo kills! most of MOBA mobile games already have an option to report trolls, guess what? LOL doesn't even have a definition of that after like 9 years; though the game is filled with them!

: Why i personally dont want to play this game anymore... after almost 9 years
I agree with every single word you said dude. I only started playing this game last year and I instantly realized the only fun thing in this game is anything besides Ranked! I play normal SR games, just fine, sometimes 15 W 5 L out of 20. Then I go ranked, my support is Blitzcrank Dark Harvest! Top goes trolling cause I'm an auto-filled Junglar who hasn't ganked his lane in 5 minutes... 4 out of 10 supports are Lux with Dark Harvest and Death Cap first item... it's just a joke... And recently even ARAM isn't fun anymore... I play ARAM and some troll is in my team, few of the teammates know him and start asking him to leave or don't troll... He says he doesn't like this random champ and will sit aside and watch us play... buys no items and just wanders around base the entire game, I submit a ticket to report him, they say they take care of it, I check his match history in a week, he still doing it in like 70% of his games, I report him again, they say they can't inform me of the result because of privacy concerns, he's still doing that! I'm done reporting that guy... but then I'm watching a stream and suddenly a streamer reports someone, in 5 minutes he gets a message from Riot telling him they have banned the guy for 2 weeks... no privacy concerns? No mate he making money for Rito! I can complain for hours and hours... don't even get me started on champion shards and stuff since I live in Iran and have no legal way to buy RP and I just rely on free stuff which is 150 Orange Essence out of a weekly chest for me! Seriously dude they don't care... everything they tell you is just excuses... you're not supposed to have fun if you neither spend nor help them make more money... IT IS COMPETITIVE OF COURSE FOR YOU TO ADJUST TO THAT AND DEAL WITH IT!
