A few weeks ago, I made the post:
Sure enough, three weeks later:
4 of those 5 games were games where I played lulu in a role other than support. The fifth game I random picked Sejuani (purposefully although there is no evidence on the report card) and used her in top lane.
In all of my games, I was reported by my own teammates, 12 total. The excpetion being my last game as sejuani where one of my opponents reported me as well
Here are some of the things people wrote about me:
"repeatedly would run in 1v5 then complain to the team. horrible, why are these people still allowed to play, why are they this rank??"
"jungle lulu OP"
"jungles a support low dmg champ, complains when we ask why they pick lulu and telling us will report for harrassing..."
"Forced our master yi to go bottom lane after picking lulu and saying nothing in champion select. Proceeded to complain all game because she wasn't getting the ganks she wanted and was just an annoyance to play with."
"picked random because he was sad....0-7 feeder"
In every game, I am scrutinized for the champion that I picked, and the lane that I chose to play them in. Before I have even said anything in chat:
Game 1: Rumble [00:01:53] wtf is lulu doing
Game 2:Akali [00:00:52] so lulu
Akali [00:00:58] why you gotta do us like this man
Game 3:Vayne [All] [00:00:15] report lulu
Lulu [All] [00:00:20] why?
Lee Sin [00:00:21] go double mid
Game 4: Actually was pleasant
Game 5: Garen [00:11:06] wtf did you pick sej for?
Now I will say that I play a lot of league of legends--Lulu is one of my favorite champions. I play her in all roles with a lot of success and have received honor in many of those games. In the games presented here, I did not do so hot--everyone has games like these. What I have noticed is that because of the champion I chose, not only do people say i'm 'feeding' when really I'm just having a bad game, they attribute it to the fact that I picked an out-of-meta champion and call me 'a troll'. I do not troll and never plan to.
In the many games that I have played, I have developed a safegaurd message that I use to people that start the game off nasty: "please stop harrassing me" in one way or another so that they understand that what they are doing is causing the game to go into a toxic direction.
What I have gathered from this time ban is that Riot has created an abusive system that rewards harrassment and discourages creativity and positive communication. In every game where I did poorly, I justify in chat why its going poorly and ask for help from my teammates.

Dear Riot, can you please fix your system so that it does not punish people that are actually trying to enjoy the game. Your system should not punish people for defending themselves while others attack them all game.
If you read the full extent of those games, you will see that my team was just outright nasty to me. Never would I ever have thought after those games that I would receive a time ban for it. This system is just abusive.
Let me know what you think
