League of Legends denies Season 5 rewards to banned or restricted players

    
64
If you’ve been a bad boy or girl this year and still expect to reap rewards from League of Legends’ Season 5, then you are in for a world of disappointment.

Riot Games Lead Game Designer of Social Systems Jeffrey Lin indicated that players who have received certain types of disciplinary measures this year will not get their ranked rewards: “We are still working on the details for the 2015 Season, but the current plan is that players who have been Chat Restricted, Ranked Restricted or Game Banned during the 2015 Season will not receive Season Rewards in Ranked.”

To put it mildly, this announcement has not gone over well with the League of Legends community. On Reddit, there is a thread with over 3,500 upvotes as of the time of this writing with players saying that this is too heavy-handed, is being announced midway through the season, is a punishment on top of a punishment, and doesn’t take into account the automated disciplinary system that LoL boasts.

Update: Lin clarified his earlier statement by saying that some punished players will still get rewards: “Players that have reformed and DO NOT HAVE Chat or Ranked Restrictions by Season end will still get Ranked Rewards. However,players that have been game banned for 7-14 days for excessive toxicity at any point during the 2015 Season will not get rewards.”

Riot is Nazi discriminating people with anger issues. Be careful who knows what they will do next. Don’t trust them

Well look at that… finally, a real dis-incentive to poor behaviour – and the people with terrible behaviours completely lose it because now there are actual meaningful consequences. Crying shame right there.
More punishment like this and less public shaming rubbish / release of personal information please.

ThanasisKazakas wjowski Estranged This is gonna seem strange to you, based on the way you feel Player 1 isn’t at fault for anything in your example.

First, asking for help by saying Player 2-5 aren’t competent enough to help the 1v2 is what caused the backlash in your scenario. “You don’t give half a fuck” Is a great way to request help from players who most likely triaged that lane to focus on their mid-late game to carry Player 1. 

A request for help in a 1v2 should have happened a little sooner than 4 deaths, and the player should have definitely played passive, practicing their last hitting skills vs a tower or freezing the lane just shy of tower range.

I’m not excusing players 2, 3 and 4 for the way they reacted in your example, but Player 1 opened the dialogue in an aggressive manner, and should have expected aggression in return.

When asking for help, you need to be humble, or you will be met with opposition. Demanding help will get you no where, and will cause the situation you illustrated.

wjowski ThanasisKazakas Estranged no no, you must compare equal things!
Lets see… what is like league: two teams fighting each other violently in order to destroy the other team’s property
Nope! there’s nothing like this in real life except vandals vs cops which isn’t a “game” but its the closest relation to league , and swearing is free there
Jokes aside, you get punished for swearing by getting chat-banned, the ranked rewards are rewarded based on skill and not on attitude
Ohhhh and, may i ask? what do you mean by “a shithead’s a shithead” so people who get chat-banned are shitheads? i assure you sire this isn’t the case, those who report them are shitheads
example of how the system works
player 1: “team help me! i’m 1v2 here the whole time and you don’t give half fuck about me”
player 2: “stfu feeder 0-4”
player 3: [all] “report player 1 feeding noob”
player 1: “are you serious? i’m feeding because i’m 1v2, yea seems legit”
player 4: “omg this bronze noob player 1”
player 1 gets chat banned because the rest 3 report him for the first available reason “offensive language” (if this happens in about 3/10 games)
player 1 cannot report the rest 3 because he’s punished and his report power is weak

A shithead’s a shithead.  It shouldn’t matter whether or not he’s showboating on a football field or spitting racial slurs into a chatbox.

wjowski ThanasisKazakas Estranged don’t mess different things, if you find a “real-world athletic event” that resembles league of legends or a similar game…or an online game at all, then we may compare the rules and how things work
