This doesn't make any sense. Is there a dedicated team of trolls out there that plague ranked 24/7 or what? Sad lives of some.
Because people who like to troll can do more damage to other players in ranked games by trying to drop people's ELO. They aren't really causing any damage in regs because it's not laddered and there's no visible ELO. In ranked, people are playing it for the purpose of tryharding and ladder climbing. Trolls know they can ruin that and attempt to do so.
Just had a guy lock in Akali as last pick and admit he was troll picking and was going to feed because our teammate selected Leblanc to go against Brand. His comment was "the LoL forums all say LB is trash and I'm not dodging so **** you guys I'm just going to feed. Enjoy the loss LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL" And the game before that was a Xin'zhao who randomed his pick and followed me around killing my jungle creeps. And the game before that was a team that decided to run away from teamfights after I would engage (Olaf) because they thought it was funny to watch me get killed 1v5.
Point being, *******s see ranked as a way to actually grief players since they can hurt you far more than trolling regs which no one cares about. If they get banned, they just make a new account and grief new players. it's worse at the end of the season like today. There's no point in trying to play ranked (6 game losing streak now) because of people abusing the ELO reset tomorrow and trolling the hell out of games.
