League of Legends is meant to be a team game, but it feels like you are constantly writing /muteall on chat before the game starts in order to avoid your teammates. This doesn’t improve communication, which is essential for the game. 

What is it about this that makes it so special? League of Legends is so toxic Are they so difficult to play? Why are people so mad, angry and pissed at each other during games? Let’s look at the root causes of our problems with League of Legends as well as the community. 


What Are Some Signs That You Have Toxic Behavior?

The Game Environment

The whole point of solo queue is to rank up and climb the ladder to get the highest rank possible. Even the most hardened Silver plebs believe they will one day be able achieve their dreams. meeting Faker This is not what will happen in Challenger. What does this have do with the game environment itself? Because the ladder is so stressful, every game becomes a high-stakes match up. 

It’s easy for people to get upset and nag at others when they make mistakes. Harping on a player can result in them replying which could then lead to nothing more than keyboard warriors fighting to be right. It is stressful, we all know it. 


What about normal games? This is where insecurities can play. You know you are bad. But you don’t want anyone to admit that you are.? ???? Autofilled Jungle Who died to Krugs during their first clear. This makes you feel so much better. No? No? Now it’s everyone else’s fault However, you can make it your own. 

The In-Game Match-Ups

Not to be forgotten, certain match-ups are just as aggressive as others. Once you have a glimpse of a Teemo has been selected for the top lane You can tell you’re in for a rough time. You might find yourself in the ever-pleasant Seraphine/Lux lane and are left hearing the constant bullshit from the champions’ mouths. 

Naturally, blood pressure will increase in such an environment! It’s impossible not to talk big in /all chat.To intimidate the other teams, I did this. But, jokes on me, they don’t have /all chat enabled. 


League of Legends has a lot of problems with smurfs. Silver I is hard to get out of and then comes Diamond II, who has a new level 30 account and is ready to take down everything and anyone you love. It’ll only make your team more angry if you are up against a smurf. Why you are feeding the enemy

A smurf on your staff can also make it very toxicYou make mistakes and one player carries it hard. The other player then starts flaming you. Welcome to Silver, my friend. 

Riot isn’t doing much to combat toxicity

Riot was the right man. Brilliant idea to ban/all chatHowever, 90% of toxic behavior comes from your team, not the enemy. You will only see people talking and cracking jokes in /all chat. League doesn’t have this problem. 

Riot doesn’t do enough to discourage people from being dicks.. You can’t make an Honor Level 5 recall a reason to want to be a good person in League of Legends. All reason is gone from their minds as soon as they enter League of Legends. Yasuo is your lock

You can report a player for being toxic or going AFK, but does that do anything? Nope. Not at all. Riot doesn’t have the option of reporting others. Had To add to the game, they don’t actually view reports. What’s the point? 

This is why League of Legends has become a toxic game and the community has grown because of it. It’s sad, but it’s true.
