I was in a game, playing as Draven. Our annie decided she didn't want to mid once the game started, so I offered to take it for her. Draven ended up being surprisingly good in mid, but it wasn't a high elo game or anything..
Anyways, I'm 5-0 by killing their mid three times and their top twice, and bot (Garen and Annie) are doing okay as well, Garen being 5-1.
We start doing well in team fights, and I end up getting 10-0. Suddenly, Annie and Garen both (they were both on vent) start complaining that I'm KSing. So I tell them, "Well, I'm the AD carry.. So it's good that the kills are coming my way." They tell me that I'm useless, a noob, and don't do any damage. That I just get the "last hit." (for the record this was not the case. Recall I was 5-0 before I even started fighting with garen and annie). So they nerd rage hard at me and call me all sorts of naughty things, and then they talk about going AFK and letting us lose.. I tell them I will report them if they do, and Annie says some naughty things again, and says it doesn't matter she's been a b---- for 2 years now in every game and still hasn't been banned (Which kind of infuriated me)...
I try to plead to their ego and tell them I'm a nub and need them, and they instead just throw the game by never joining in on the team fights the rest of the game, just sitting in the forest and killing creeps, or staying as far away from the conflict as possible... I aced the other team and got the final two towers down to their nexus, and they did nothing but attack their wraiths together...
We ended up losing. I was 16-3 or something.
TL;DR: So can I report someone for refusing to cooperate with the team and go after team objectives?
There are very few things that can get you banned from a single incident. They include:
- Trying to hack the servers
- Trying to hack the game
- Credit card fraud and/or stuff that looks like it may very well be so
- Criminal threats against other players
- Various other acts that look like they might be criminal
- Extreme bad behavior that catches the notice of player support (Spamming chat with racial abuse, etc)
- A few other obvious 'no brainer' bans
You will notice that none of these match what you or your teammates did.
However, you CAN get banned for a pattern of behavior. And this is where it gets subjective. This is really a three step process, that ultimately depends upon players thinking it was shady. What you are describing sounds pretty shady. I'd vote guilty if I saw the facts in tribunal, and it lined up with that. Anyway, the process is:
Step 1: Get into the tribunal
This happens when your fellow players tend to report you a lot more than the average gamer over a significant amount of games. Eventually, the system decides you are 'suspicious enough' and has real humans take a look. Most players never get to this point.
Step 2: Get reviewed by your fellow players in the tribunal
At this point, if what went on looks not terribly abusive or bad and you aren't a jerk in chat, you are very unlikely to get a ban. On other hand, if you call people newbs a lot, sell your items and buy boots, and talk about the amazing time you had with your teammate's mother's the night before (unless of course, you are their father), players might be inclined to punish you. Oh yeah, or just threaten to go AFK and feed in chat -- that's pretty clear cut too.
This cycle of step 1 and step 2 must repeat several times before anyone would be up for a PERMANENT ban.
Step 3: Get a permanent ban
Once you are here, a player support rep will look at your case. Once in a great while, they will decide to pardon you beacuse it doesn't look legit to them. However, most of the time, by the time you are here, you would be REALLY guilty.
What your teammates did won't get them a ban on it's own. But if their average game involves angering their teammates, chances are, they'll eventually get banned.
