and no. i NEVER feed early. theres a difference between dying to a dorans guy and dying against the guy that got fed off your solo top 4/0.
i know that most tribunal users are just casuals that fluctuate between 100 and 300 wins. so ill just disregard your ignorant post and move on.
oh i also know someone will post saying how big of an ******* i am, and that judging by my post i deserve to be banned. well no **** sherlock, i get annoyed when someone like the poster above runs his mouth without knowing anything. especially when they are just people that joined maybe a week ago.
but dont care, i dont give much of a ****... i havent been banned just yet but 2 days ago, this time i wont try to write anything to the CS cuz its pointless, and this time i wont try to convince anyone cuz it is also pointless.
Intentional grief is on the same level as verbal abuse, either way it is ruining someone's game experience even further than it already has to be
When you are stuck in a 5v5 game, you are partnered with four other people. You don't need to have a masters degree in math to know that you have a decent chance of getting a player who may either be a poor player or just someone who's having a bad day. These are the risks you run in playing a team based game such as this.
Try being the better man. They are feeding, try giving them advice, helping them, lane switch or something. Just because one player is playing poorly does not mean the game is lost already because this is, again, a TEAM game. One does not win by abusing their teammates, they win by working with them
. Compliment them on whatever moves you see them make that ARE good, try to bolster their self confidence because if they are already playing poorly they probably already feel poorly. Get them out of that mindset.
Once you start verbally harassing them though, you are only furthering your team's demise and have, as I mentioned earlier, ruined their experience even further than it needs to be.
Some people just don't accept advice or help and will continue to sink the game. Nothing you can do there. Continue to try offering constructive criticism wherever you can, and simply wait until post game and report them for "unskilled player". If you harass them you only make yourself look bad.
I'm sure you are a talented player, but notice what I have done in this post. I have offered positive, constructive
criticism rather than call you a "dumb newbie" or "ignorant". You are only hurting yourself by being negative.

Put together the segments in bold and you'll find yourself a nice tl;dr version.
Correct, Internet =/= RL. The problem is though this is a game that once initiated, you are locked into and forced to play to finish unless you want to add a leaver mark to your record and push your account towards a possible ban if you continue. For someone who has paid money in the game, it would be especially frustrating to be banned for any reason, as you have clearly mentioned. So clearly LoL game =/= your definition of "internet" in this case.
So, as you have said, "Gaming itself =/= serious business". By that logic, there should not be such a thing as verbal abuse to feeders, because there's no reason to get mad over losing? Right?
