Good point, I actually forgot about this. I'll just have to ignore toxic behavior and play my best.
Basically what's happening is some teammates are belligerently trying to force me to play bottom (as AP Teemo). This is when we have bot laners much more capable than I such as Jax, Jayce, Ziggs, Karthus, Lux, Malzahar etc. For the most part these champions can clear and or 1v1 much better than I can against the typical bot lane champion. Teemo's short range makes it difficult to play against most other mages and his clear is sub optimal. Sauron's teir list I believe supports this view, that Teemo is better served top.
So what happens is some team members try to bully me into playing bot when I've been making great contributions top by defending with shrooms and assassinating squishy targets. And when I don't respond because I very well know I can make better contributions top, they bully me by asking the other team to report me. And of corse then whenever I happen to die, I'm a feeder regardless of having most kills and most assists and they ask for more reports. It's really unfortunate and fairly toxic. And it does not help the team win games.
Now If a Jax or another AD is rolling our bottom lane I will without hesitation swap if that's optimal for the team. But that's my point, I'm only looking to make plays which are optimal for the team and I've been winning a lot lately with AP Teemo (I would safely guess 30-10 with Teemo in my last 40 games). It seems my +wins have put me in a group with slightly more competitive and unfortunately opinionated players than I'm used to experiencing.
I only hope to play with positive team oriented players. Since this game mode really is a lot of fun when people are not being rude to one another.
