Seventy-four percent of adults who play online multiplayer games in the US experience
some form of harassment while playing games online. Sixty-five percent of players
experience some form of severe harassment, which includes physical threats, stalking
and sustained harassment. Alarmingly, nearly a third of online multiplayer gamers have
been doxed (29%).2
The games in which the greatest proportion of players experience
harassment are Dota 2 (79% of players of the game), Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (75%),
Overwatch (75%), PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (75%) and League of Legends (75%)." ~ An ADL Servey
Alright now that you setted up a room mode, you should decide who/if are you going to invite into the game? Make sure your friend who is already in the lobby is OK with that. No reason to have a bunch of people in the same game that just hate each other. Also make sure you won't invite someone who has got a less priority ban, or you can potentially invite him/her but only If the rest of the crew is willing to wait 5-20 more minutes before the game starts.
In draft mode, make sure you all are happy with the primary and secondary role you chose. No reason to scream at each other because you just all want to go mid. If this situation happens, try to find the solution. Maybe you can split the crew into 2 separate rooms, or maybe you can try to convince your whole group to pick FILL role so everyone has a chance, or you can maybe do a little compromise... 'I mean I can play Yasuo on top lane too, it is gonna be a little harder then on mid lane but at least I will relieve tension in my group'
Now you can start a game, during the time you can start a basic conversation so the voice channel will not stay silent. Make sure you don't forget to tap Accept when the game is found so you will not make your friends wait.
Once the BAN phase begins NEVER EVER BAN A CHAMPION SOMEONE ELSE WANTS TO PLAY!! It is a horrible way to express your frustration and it is never a clever idea. If you do this you basically condemn your whole game. The jungler maybe will not gank you for the rest of the game, the support won't heal you, ADC will try to steal your kills on purpose, and eventually you will get heavily reported. Is this even worth to you? Is a such a pathetic attempt to hurt your allies worth a bad game and lower priority lobby? I don't think so. If you accidentaly BANed a champion someone else wants to play - well then you are in serious trouble. I recommend you to make a big apology, pick a bit more supportive champion and help that person for the rest of the game to excuse your mistake.
- GLHF everyone <3
- I wish you all a beautiful game!
- Good Luck everyone but mainly have fun!
- Nice skin Ashe, had to take a lot of effort to get...
- Somebody once told me the world is gonna rollin
but feel free to create your own, as long as the positive aspect remains. You can even add a bit more fun to it by saying something funny relative to champion you play, like:
- As Kayle against Morgana: Still copying my hairstyle, sister?
- As Yuumi against Vel'Koz: Make your shinylight glow, Vel'Koz! I wanna chase it!
As the game starts, make sure you help your jungler with buff. I know that you need to farm but so does he/she :/. On the other hand jungler s should always please and thank for help - The help is not the matter of course! As the game starts and you get to lane show some positive emote to empower the good mood of the game. If you are a support playing on bot lane, make sure you will not steal farm from your Marksman , it is really mean when you do that on purpose and you should always apologise for big minion steals.
As the game goes on, make sure you always treat good players in your team. Telling them lines like 'good job buddy', 'wow that was epic!', or simply 'gj Jinx' will make them feel a lot better. On the other hand make sure you inspire the worse players on your team. And I said inspire not flame. Telling them lines like 'Why Yasuo feed, WTF?!?', 'youre just useless uninstall lol', '**** Zed 0/2/1?!?!', 'report for feeding' will not make them better in any way. Make sure you do not act like that and you help other players that are attacked instead.
When someone kills you make sure you treat your opponents aswell, telling them 'nice outplay' or 'wp Jinx, nice Rocket' will definitely take better effect then saying 'Thresh hitbox broken' or 'WOW now kill me 1v1 coward'.
When your jungler slays the Dragon or Baron or gives you blue buff, thank him for additional stats he gave you or treat him for stealing those objectives from the enemy team.
When someone is attacked by other player, stand up for him/her. Ask them why they want to report him, he was a pretty strong opponent but he just got unlucky. Tell them there is no reason to be so rude and just help that poor unfortunate soul.
Do not give up too early, every game can suddenly turn around
When the game ends type 'ggwp <3' into chat NO MATTER HOW THE GAME HAS ENDED. Also do not say 'ez' it is really aggressive towards everyone else and it kind of destroys the good mood of the game.
As you could see, there are a lot of magic words in this guide. Use them in the game!
When the reporting time beggins take a close look at what you can report others for.
So Let's take a closer look at this:
Make sure you are always 100% sure that you will want to play more games with this person in the future.
I personally recommend adding into your friend list only people you really know.
You should learn the basics of gaming slang so you don't look like a fool to your friend when some deep converstation
Seriously guys. Do not do it. It is very rude and it will probably make your allies mute you soon and then when you will seriously need help, they will not hear you.
Complaining is very bad habit. And is it even worth? I mean, since no one actually cares, why should you even bother typing things like this on your keyboard? Ask yourself which one off the following dialogs has a higher chance of happening:
Master Yi: WTF I was in alpha?!?
Master Yi: Fiora balanced lol
Master Yi: 1v1 me noob, you nothin without your jg
Or this one:
Master Yi: WTF I was in alpha?!?
Soraka: poor Yi - *uses Redemption on Master Yi* here enjoy the Redemption as a compensation for your destroyed feelings :(
Orianna: Oh poor Master - you wanna help with blue?
Vayne: Yi, come bot, free kill for you
Master Yi: And Fiora is not balanced, her stun just instakill me
Soraka: I know there is no real way how she can stun you but she is just too lucky I guess, here. *shields Master Yi with Locket of the Iron Solari*
- Say thank you and please
- Inspire others, don't put them down
- Don't complain
- Don't report others for feeding or not being good at the game
- Keep the nice mood in the team
- Stand for other allies and enemies
- Pay attention Who do you add to your friend list
- Say GLHF at the start of the match and ggwp at the end
- Do not try to ruin the day of others around
- Do not flame nor be toxic - keep the frustration to yourself
- Treat your allies and enemies for playing well or being nice
- Make comromises
Have a ravishing day!
