They never accept that they were simply outplayed by a better team. They always think their own team is the worst of all.
In addition, toxic behaviour is also abundant in high elo, where "good players" are. How come? If playing good would reduce toxicity, very high elo games should be nearly void of it. But that's far, far from the case.
Toxic behaviour is a complex matter. Most rage/verbal abuse/offensive language problems are due to "caring too much" - people who don't care as much about the outcome of the game are much, MUCH less likely to rage or insult their teammates. Intentional feeding usually happens because these people simply are ******bags or are out for revenge. So called "trollpicking" usually happens because people hate certain roles their team wants them to play or out of revenge.
If you want to fight toxicity effectively, you need to address the roots of the respective toxic behaviour. And that's kinda hard for certain kinds of toxic behaviour. In fact, I'd deem it borderline impossible.
But first and foremost, I deem a "global training" inefficient against literally any kind of toxic behaviour.
Global training? When did I say anything about Global training? You didn't read all my posts.
This Toxic community is the worst here in the US. Asia does not have the same problems that it does here.
Countries like South Korea actually take pride in their mannerisms of sportsmanship. They have a totally different perspective on how to act and how to improve, not saying GG at the end of a match of SC2 is considered bad manners and depending on what is said or done can lead to fines.
In Japan the general focus is on family instead of the individual thus playing a team based game they will naturally be more inclined to play as a team instead of being the star.
Riot needs to change the foundation of the American player base attitude to curb toxic players, and teaching people simple basics of the game is a start.
