Sitting at 1498 rating I entered for one final match. Things were looking good. All 3 lanes won, their jungler outplayed, their mid lane pushed to inhib. Feeling pretty confident about the victory, I began think what a long season it's been and how much work I've put into the game to become a better player. It had all boiled down to this game, I could almost feel what it was like to be at a championship filled with suspense and anticipation. Right when things were looking like a sure win, our AD Carry decided it was time to check out ratings on lolking.net. Before starting, he stated he would AFK if I was only game away from hitting 1500. Moments after, he came back and laughed at how he was now going to AFK so that I will be 1400 and not awarded gold. He sat at the base and laughed at how I did not deserve the win for talking too much. (I did not swear at anyone or get nasty. I only told people when to get out for over-extending). To him, I was apparently "talking too much." So within a few minutes, the enemy team had racked up enough farm to start building some final items. And not too long after, I lost my game. The last game of the season that would've gave me 1500 and gold. I think it's pretty lame that people like this exist in this world but they do. After the game ended, he announced to the other team that I was harassing him as he was "trying his best to win" mocking my loss. I doubt anything will be done about this but it's a real shame.
I understand this is a game and does not matter at the end of the day. But I worked hard for something and it was taken away by another player for his amusement.
