Many of those punished by the Tribunal come here and try to excuse themselves by saying things like: "they started first", "he was insulting me so I insulted him" and so on, basically arguing that there's no other option than to fight insults with insults, rage with rage, fire with fire. But what if you fight fire with water?
In a recent ranked game I was Taric laning with MF, Malzahar mid, Teemo top and Jax in the jungle. Less than 10 minutes into the game Jax was already raging like maniac, I'm talking all caps spaming insults into the chat. He was being very abusive of Malz, calling him a "ret***" several times, but he didn't really answer back. Jax came bot a couple of times but it didn't go so well so he started raging at MF calling her a "cun*" several times but he/she was actually very nice and didn't insulted him back.
At this point the match was going very bad in all lanes, we were like 10-22 and the match seemed all but lost. Jax's rage was at it's highest point and seemed like he was about to punch the screen.
But then something interesting happened, there was a small teamfight that I wasn't part of and that we kinda lost, but Teemo said "gj Jax" and then Malz and MF did the same. And it was like magic... like Jax had been disarmed and didn't knew how to react to his teammates still being nice to him. He mostly stopped raging and we all could focuse on the game again. Despite being horribly outpowered by our feed enemies and losing almost every team fight, due to better team coordination, Teemo's mushrooms and my wards we were able to catch single enemies several times and split push until we took down two of their inhbitors. We won that game. The game that was 10-22 with a jungle raging and insulting his team.
I felt like a teenager who had just witnessed three mature adults perfectly deal with a child throwing a tantrum!... he was an a-hole to them, he insulted them many times but they didn't fought fire with the fire, instead they used water to put off the fire and focus on winning the game.
So instead of coming here and try to excuse yourself by blaming others, why don't you just follow the example of these three awesome players who won us that game, not by the skill of their plays, but by the maturity they showed?, don't do it because you're nice and hippie, just do it because you want to win the game and because raging is like putting a debuff on your whole team, one that doesn't reduce your armor, AD or AP but that lowes your teammate's morale and distracts them.
