: Hmm strange I can't find rito's database online, so that should be safe at least. Only thing I find is a Fok forum profile with the same name. That might be you, in which case you are (propably) Dutch. (I don't have a Fok forum profile, are e-mail adresses visible there?)
im not dutch, nor do i know what a fok forum is :) thanks for your time though

If someone exploited that, it would be really dangerous for them, due to it being illegal and it would be even more dangerous to just use this information to creep some people. Someone who exploited such a leak wouldn't take that risk. Micha is common Russian name. Cyrillic version is Миша so most likely it had nothing to do with you. If he was reffering to your real name he would have written Mich.

so how it started was he flashed super aggressive on me and died. I typed "lol" in all chat and then he proceeded to trash talk me and tell me how much better he was and say lol every time i died and i was like "whatever floats your boat". But we were just talking english. I think he might have been from the UK, I am not. I almost don't have any friends on this account I have read stories similar to mine on the boards but those people always used their username on other apps/programs.
: Of course it's possible, it's just very very unlikely. Well, with a name as common as Michael probably not THAT unlikely.
So this dude got extremely lucky and succeeded to creep me out, even though the odds of guessing my name weren't in his favor at all?
: name is michael, mailadress is michaelus..@.. and he called me micha instead of just saying michael. I know my name is pretty common but still
nope, havent used this username anywhere else before, it is an old latin saying so it might be used by other people
GLurch (EUW)
: Probably a coincidence. Is your name Lucas/Lukas (apparently it's one of the most common names in Europe)? Or do you have a name that is very common for your country or in another country?
name is michael, mailadress is michaelus..@.. and he called me micha instead of just saying michael. I know my name is pretty common but still
: Or a pure coincidence.
I don't believe it's possible to just guess someones name
: lol honestly it's probably someone your friend knows, trust me. it has happened to me and usually the truth is less sinister :P or it was a lucky guess. don't worry about it :P
well i was playing solo, and it didnt seem at all like a lucky guess. I think it was meant to threaten me, like "I know who you are"

: No, he's not right. If he's actually trolling, he'll risk a punishment. Usually people like that will just say that Riot doesn't care to deter you from reporting them. Quite often, they've also already been punished in the past for their behaviour, but they just don't want to admit that.
Okay thanks a lot for your time, im gonna remember what you said for future games. And I hope I never turn out to be the varus that people are frustrated about
Hansiman (EUNE)
: Greetings. It's the right thing to do to report people like that, but you should use the report category that best fits the crime. Reporting him for racism isn't going to get him punished faster, unless he was actually being racist. There's several security filters in place to prevent false reports from punishing someone. The worst thing that happens is that the system will lower the value of your future reports, as it believes you're falsely reporting people.
Thanks for the answer! i wasn't fully aware of how the reporting system works. now I know you can't just falsely report people. But does that mean that our varus was right? that riot won't care? that he can just troll how much he wants and he wont ever get punished?
