[KitGuru] Pro lol player perma banned for abuse and harassment - Page 4

post #31 of 143
I completely agree with the internet in general bringing out the worst in people. Some light hearted jabbing is one thing, but the amount of filth in practically all online games is just an indicator of the times we're in. There are a lot of teens and young adults with absolutely no self control and an overwhelming feeling of entitlement that they can say and do what they want without reproach... bs on every level.

Inter-player interactions should be monitored and regulated a bit in online communities. If someone isn't very good at a game, who are you to tell them to stop playing altogether just because they aren't as good as you'd like? Maybe they're new? Maybe it's a shared account with a bad friend playing? You don't think they're aware they aren't doing as good? Since you feel the need to dictate they stop playing a game based on your whims, do you have an alternative entertainment activity to offer them? People use the internet to say and do things with a sense of seperation from themselves that they'd never do in a personal interaction. I think it's worse in 'pro gamers' since they feel their skill in a particular game gives them the right to be a jerk in person at a competition. I'd be likely to back hand someone if they spoke to me in person like they do online.

The whole 'grow a thicker skin' argument is tired as well. Why should we have to put up with the filth online when we wouldn't in person? Hasn't anyone ever heard of bad sportsmanship? If that's above peoples heads... how about just being a d-bag? I don't say things online I wouldn't in person, and have followed that since I'd like to consider myself an honest and 'face value' person. If more people took the extra half second to think and keep their mouths shut, they may make more friends and have a better reputation. Like has also been said, these players on a team can't carry it by themselves. Perhaps not alienating teammates and people in general would help in the long run. That... or a good smack to show you what the real world feels like.

Not on the same level but pretty much every clan I've been a member off wouldn't tolerate members acting like that no matter how good they are :l

His team should of kicked him or spoke to him about it before it got this far imo.

This wasn't a one time deal that got him banned. Apparently the guy is a complete assbasket and gets as much pleasure from being that way as he does from playing the game. Good riddance.

Swearing and flaming is part of gaming. If you dont think so you are wrong. This is how males are, you are competing and you talk crap to each other. You are trying to KILL the other team. They are your ENEMIES. We are gonna design violent games that put you into an aggressive competitive state of mind, then we are gonna punish you if talk trash, yeh good idea. Why don't they go regulate everywhere people talk trash and take away one of few places we dont have to put up with forced PC nonsense. Sex and killing is ok, but if you swear you've crossed the line, and if you call someone certain words its because you hate gay people............. ugh I cant facepalm enough...........

Add mature filter
Dont allow death threats
Dont allow talk about drugs
Dont allow racism
Allow block option

DONE.

You don't need to interfere past that. Gaming is being completely warped so companies can make more money and this is just another one of these changes. Someone called me a name on the internet boo hoo, someone doesnt agree with me boo hoo. Who cares, I wonder if this is the result of all this antibullying fad thats going on right now..........


Are we gonna have to find a 3rd party software to not be limited? Like can we only flame on skype since games wont let us? We might have to rely on streaming sights to not get punished for acting how we are like how destiny does it. I hope this idiocy doesnt spread to others games and I hope it kills LOL cuz I hate LOL and I could use some choice words for people who play it if I were playing a game.


I also think OC.net should allow you to swear and flame in gaming threads, like not gaming hardware threads but actually game discussion threads because its sorely needed.

And I'm always honest. I never accuse people of being something they aren't, nor do criticize anything that is unrelated to how they are playing the game. I simply have little patience for people who cannot pull their weight or who repeatedly make stupid mistakes.
I'm worst to people who know exactly who I am. No one else has any reason to take me seriously.
Also, very few high level professional players are remotely anonymous.

Same. But it's never straight disrespectful or racist/bigoted/homophobic or anything like that. Usually along the same lines as you described: "Get off your #!@ and help us out here or quit the friggin server..." If I'm cussing in a game it's almost always at my own teammates trying to get their best efforts out of them. And I'm even quicker to praise a valiant effort on somebody's part.

That's just gaming. If you don't get "fired up" while gaming, you're doing it wrong.

Though I don't play LoL or any games like that, I've seen on the live streams how caustic some of the players can be. That I don't agree with.

Yes and no. Making a new account is free. The money spent on champion skins, champions and rune pages is lost. I don't have a clue if he actually spent any money at all, but most "Pro" players buy champion skins. He probably played so much that he had earned plenty of IP to buy the champions and rune pages. Still, thats a LOT of time to earn the IP for every champion.

Pretty much everything you said here is exactly the reason there's a negative stigma against electronic gamers.... You should feel ashamed, but apparently you're beyond that. Your understanding of actual gaming culture is sorely misrepresented as well... I'd have a wall of text if I responded to every stupid thing in your post, so I won't, but it's just plain wrong.

All that shows is a complete lack of maturity and self control, and a feeling of entitlement that 'raging' is a part of popular culture. I guess next you'll say you loved Jersey Shore and reality tv is the best thing since Technicolor rolleyes.gif
