Shit League Players Say

I like browsing the Tribunal on League of Legends. Sometimes the things people say are amusing. Most of the time, you get nonsense like this that shouldn't be said or repeated.

That's what this is. It's shit League of Legends players actually say (and most likely shouldn't); it's what people complain about, especially when they say it makes the game uncomfortable.

Toxic players and people are bad everywhere. This isn't to pick on League of Legends; it's because that's where I see it. There may occasionally be screens from other games, but it's predominantly from League of Legends.

Visit Tribunal Transcripts for even more cringe-worthy behaviour.

Exactly how is it acceptable to use racist epithets in an argument? Oh, wait, it’s not.

Let’s remember a few things:

  1. The Summoner’s Code¬†states that you should fill the niche that’s left, which sort of indicates that pick order comes before calling. Sometimes people might be nice enough to let you have it, but it’s not always going to be the case.
  2. Remember that if you call something, someone else might not have seen it. We all know the chat system in pre-game is obnoxiously buggy. If PVP.net throws a hissy fit (as it’s known to do) while you’re in champion select, someone else may’ve missed your message.
  3. Some people may intentionally ignore you calling a role and opt to utilise their placement in pick order over your call. There’s a reason why people generally add ‘please’ to their call, which isn’t just to be nice; it’s a request, not a command. As much as it may suck to be stuck with something you don’t know very well, learn to deal with it. That’s life.
  4. In the end, this is a game. Yes, I know you want to ‘do what you want,’ but that doesn’t always yield the best results. Even if you get stuck playing a role you’re not familiar with, look at it as a learning opportunity.
  5. For people who flame those who ‘fill the niche’ their team requires, consider the fact that they may not be as familiar with that role. Be helpful, not toxic.
  6. For all people, learn to take and give constructive feedback. This will benefit more of your games and provide you with different opportunities as you progress.
