[KitGuru] Pro lol player perma banned for abuse and harassment - Page 11

post #101 of 143
"It's just a game"

The rallying cry of douchebags and exploiters for the past 15 years. If it's not a big deal cause "it's just a game", then getting banned isn't a big deal cause "it's just a game".

Pretty much this.

It's the easiest justification for moral disengagement and could potentially be the bane of society. It can be likened to bullying.

i don't know why people feel the need to defend bad manner. if you're an adult it just looks immature and pathetic. if you're a kid, it looks like you were raised poorly.

i don't see why people need threats to act like adults

Good. I hate "Pro" players with an attitude.

Usually if i'm rather good at a particular game i try and stay modest about it till abuse is hurled my way. I usually handle it in one of three ways:

1. give it them back

2. ignore it

3. teach them techniques that i know that may help them stand a chance.


Often though, i'm banned/kicked before i'm able to do any of the above. BF3 is a prime example, as i've captured here in this video

Yup. I treat everyone online as if it's someone i know in real life. Because it can be a very real possibility. It's also nice to gain potential friendships from it. Either way there's no excuse for an attitude in these games just because it's online and "just a game".

Because of peoples atittudes on the net i find it difficult to immerse myself in online games, and in my experience MMO's have a tendancy to have bad communities. Give me single player games like Skyrim anyday.

Granted a games administrators can moderate their game chat however they deem necessary, but seriously if someone came up to you in real life or started shouting "you suck!" at Wal-Mart or w/e shop you decide to go to, do you call the police and say "that man hurt my feelings!". Nope, you'd go home and complain to your significant other or friends. Granted at some point someone will grow a pair of balls and probably kick that person shouting obscene things in the face, but there would be no repercussions from authorities(aka moderators)
Its a game.

If you are going to use a right that has been granted to you in order to defend the behavior of such disrespectfull people then know what you are talking about. Free Speech is NOT the freedom to say anyhting you see fit. Free Speech does not extend to privately owned property, the game belongs to Riot as does your account and they can remove you from the game for what ever reason they deem acceptable. Being sensitive to such vulgar comments by others is not being weak minded and to even think so is completely nieve.

The fact of the matter is that this player broke the rules, not that someone has been oversensitive. If you cannot follow the rules then do not play the game.

Your example of some random person in Walmart insulting me has no correlation to this scenario at hand. In that case I would tell the to stuff it and carry on. If they did continue to harass me and refused to leave me alone then yes I would not hesitate report it as harassment is against the law. They would not be arrested but a file would be put in their record and they would be escorted out by the police causing them embaressment. That is not me being weak minded or a "wimp", that is me standing up for my right to not be harassed and defending that. Oh and if you decide to "grow a pair" and hit the person insulting you, now you have broken the law and assaulted him which can result in jail time.

Nothing infuriates me more than an American that doesn't properly understand the rights that I am overseas fighting for them to have or them waiving them around as a shield so they can do what ever they want. If you are going to cite your rights to defend what you are saying then study and know them in detail.

So if I happen to tell them to get off the game and study for their kindergarten entrance exams so be it (that comment is becoming more and more true after playing COD for so long). And if you don't like what I have to say, then mute me, keep on playing *smartly*, and don't go whining to the rule nazi's of what ever game you are playing.
To me this argument is as stupid as the morons who say that a bad show on TV should be banned (if I recall correctly, there was one such attempt to cancel south park several years ago). The only people who wine and complain about public media, are the people who are too stupid to change the channel, mute a player, or simply turn off the game all together.
I guess what I am trying to say is, if you can't stand the heat, then stay FARRRRRRR away from the kitchen.
For all further questions, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFr6P2BtE3k

You are assuming he was just criticizing his teammates in a harsh but not unreasonable level. However Riot claims that his behavior was extreme, among the 0.7% worst players in terms of reported incidents. Riot also says that he has been warned before for his behavior but his harassment of other players has only got worse, rising by almost a third in the last three months.

Are you saying there is no point where your behavior can be so extreme that it warrants banning you from the game? If you are going to sit there and threaten violence against people, use racial epithets, threaten people with rape, at what point is it ok to ban a player?

Right now you can get away with way too much harassment. Why should my ability to feel safe playing a game be compromised by by people who sometimes seem to enjoy the harassment more than the game? I wouldn't accept someone threatening me and calling me racial epithets in real life, why should I accept it online? He was warned about his behavior, it got worse, he got kicked. Perfectly reasonable.

I wonder how many people here defending people's right to harass others like this are the ones doing the harassing. If anyone wants to speak up I would be interested in hearing why.

Not very "Professional".

I think when people act like this to others on the net, they usually deal with some form of harassment daily in life, or have dealt with it before. They're just continuing on the train, following those who made them this way.

There are also times when this match making system will put players that do not speak english on your team just because they queued on the US servers

This is not how match making works.

And with the chat wheel in dota2 you can speak to anyone of any language.
