Actually I think "scaring off' is a accurate way to put it. I almost did not bother to start playing this game because I had heard how abusive it's people can be if you do not play exactly the way they expect you to. Even now when I talk to my friends about the game they have the same reaction I did, they do not want to play a game when they are flamed for not "power gaming," and where people were likely to either rage quit or intentionally lose if things were not going their way. I am glad we have the tribunal or else I would never play PvP.
Also, you more or less said what I did, Riot wants their players to have fun, and thus, stick around. The longer they are around the more RP they might buy. Yes it is business, they are a company trying to make money and trying to make sure their primary income does not go under from childish behavior. If you enjoy their game, then you should do your part to help purge it if bad gaming experiences.
Sorry, I am not trying to lecture at you or anything. I am sure you understand this already, I am simply trying to make sure I explained myself well enough.
