  • Trolls in Ranked

    Alright first off no matter what I do I can't seem to consistently win in ranked due to the following facts:

    - Language barrier so South Americans playing in North American servers destroy my mmr
    - Trolls purposefully throwing games because they didn't get what they wanted or because to them it's funny.
    - Troll supporters pick support and try to play carry

    This guy Feex match ID: 605272200 literally purposefully threw the game because he didn't get to play hard carry or support. He would RP the air as soon as RP was up. 30min in or so he started feeding. The game was ours all game but since it was 4v5 we ended up losing. I don't have enough reports to even report this guy!! Valve you need to do something about this or you're going to lose a valuable customer.

    My personal input
    - Make accounts bound to only one region (example my account bound to NORTH AMERICA)
    - Make matchmaking have a mandatory role option (mine would be offlane or carry)
    - Permanently ban accounts; muting and low priority is NOT ENOUGH

    Please make some changes or the playerbase will only shrink.

    I hope i'll never see those things happen...

    And you, stop thinking about yourself. Those are the natural consequences of playing online. We are a whole community and you should see from that point of view, of the entire community, not you!

    If someone wants to troll, its ok: he will lose MMR and 89% chance he will go to low pool and thats all. If you are really good then you will increase your MMR in other games without trolls. You can also play with your friends to avoid trolls.

    In the End, i want to tell you that, by natural laws, its impossible to consistently win in this game. With that said, I was still able to go from 3300 mmr to 4100 in EU west.
