    False Reports Need to be Punished

    Legitimate reasons to report are:
    1) Cheating/Hacking
    2) Harassment
    3) AFK/Intentional Feeding

    I've sat up all night playing ranked and all I've seen is "Report X Player" for no legitimate reason.

    Picking a Talent that isn't arbitrary decided to be Meta is not a reason to report.
    Picking a champion that you do not like is not a reason to report.

    If anything is toxic in this game it's this attitude and it needs to be addressed.

    Reporting for stupid shit like X player didn't play that well or picked a wrong talent or champion should be construed as False Reporting.

    I cannot tell you how many times I saw people turn on their teammates saying Report X player just because they lost.

    Nothing happens to these players so they keep on doing it. This does not foster a good community.

    I almost never report unless someone Intentionally went AFK or is basically Cheating.

    I had a player say I had "Squid Brain" all game long and after the match was over he messaged me telling me I had "Squid Brain" over and over. Honestly I should have reported him for Harassment but I'm the type to leave people alone in their salt. I don't care, say what you want to say but when the game ends leave it be.

    It's beyond petty to incite other players to report another player just because you lost and yet this practice is so damn common in Rank.

    I don't know what other people think about this or if they have the same issues.
    I play in NA so I don't know what EU is like.

    I understand that this issue is tough to address because the way reports work but I do think it is going to be critical at some point if this game actually wishes to have a flourishing Ranked scene.

    Even if you manage to "fix" Matchmaking this will be the next big problem for people.

    If we have 3 DPS, 1 Tank and the Last Pick picks DPS too thats a Report because i want to play Ranked and not let People turn Ranked into Casual, it's already bad enough.

    When the Enemy Team has only Atlas and our Damage buys Wrecker 3 even though we are telling him that Wrecker is useless, it's a Report.


    and so on..


    I'm not sure if you qualify it as "Picking the wrong Champion or playing not that well".



    In the End i would be a bit cooler in regards of Reporting but like i said, Players destroy Competitive and I feel like thats the only way to battle against it (a bit atleast)

    Well, I report tons of players every day. For harassment, afk and feeding (when someone is emoting instead of playing, I suppose it's feeding). But, yes, I suppose I am reported at least twice a game for... not picking healing-bot build.
    I think adding a disclaimer on the report form would help, something on the like of "you can't report someone for using a talent/loadout/champ you don't like. Abusers will be punished". Since now they're using an automatic ban system, there's nothing more you can do.
    You'd need to put someone manually checking reports for doing what you are suggesting. Not that it would be bad, but I don't think it's manageable at the moment.

    So, you can all pick whatever you want, but last one shall fill, even if he's bad at the role...
    Great strategy. What about ASKING before picking? I always say, first sentence, that I suck at playing tank. They all ignore me. Then, when I don't pick a tank, they insult me.
    Picking without asking the team is playing casual. But you all are doing it, not just last picker. He's not more guilty than you.
    I've finally found it!

    I highly agree with you here. This is a team based game. During the few moments before a match starts members of the team should be discussing what role they will be playing and game strategy. Unfoirtunately, most players choose not to communicate and some will do so at the end of the of the game by insulting other players who did not perform to their expectation. This happens in Casual and Ranked.

    It's not one person's fault that their team loses badly, oftentimes consistantly, but the team's inability to communicate, strategize and work together.

    The way I view it, is that there are other legitimate reasons save for the default 3 in the report section: That's why there is a report for 'other' reason. There have been multiple times that I've had people completely throw the draft (I only play ranked mind you), all because they didn't want to read the chat, or attempt to communicate, and essentially made a match unwinnable because of this. After all, this is a team based game, and failing to communicate your strongsuits and your weakpoints, especially in a game mode that's sorta, well, the more competitive mode, is basically throwing to some degree.

    I have to agree to disagree here. There are many times where I ask people if they want something for me to lock (and I usually only get people who want me to lock in some DPS that most likely won't get picked (such as a first pick Vivian), and after supports/tanks/dps are locked, someone will make their first comment: 'I can't play any other role besides x' which would, well, mean that it's more so on one person there, and not the team's fault.

    One person can make all the difference though. While communication is very important, every teammate is important. And sometimes one wrong move by 1 person can cost the win.
    Schools out.

    Fix maeves bugs

    I seem to have bad luck when it comes to getting put with good teams. None the less i get best flank 90% of the time. I would like to get put with better players so if you would like to play with me ps4. My ign is: Maeveinator

    yeah but just because someone makes a mistake is not a valid reason to report
