  • Abolish the mute system

    The communication report system is grade school tattle-telling at it's finest, get rid of it already.

    Recently I had a game where a couple of teammates were talking shit but weren't playing up to snuff. I said nothing derogatory, nothing vulgar. Simply, I calmly called them out on the premise that bad players talking shit is pretty typical. (Maybe it was slightly insulting) It was nothing that merits a communication ban.

    They clearly didn't like what I said, now I have to suffer a handicap because a couple of clowns didn't like my criticism.

    If you don't like what I have to say, don't listen. The game already provides a service that does just that.

    I know what it's like to play with players that truly are abusive, I don't report them because I have enough brain power to click the mute button. It is two simple clicks.
    The system is broken and easily abuse-able by just a couple of downers.
    Reports should be for reserved for disruptive team play, like feeding, not because you don't like what some other person said. (that is easily solvable through the in-game client)

    Unless you have employees literally listening in on the games, you probably shouldn't be handing out punishments.

    Quit festering to the League of Legends community, it's fucking annoying.
