In fact, former pro and popular streamer Voyboy called out Riot Games yesterday for its lack of action toward these issues, saying that the ranked scene is now in its worst state ever in terms of player base attitude.\r\n\r\nVoyboy pointed out that many players aren\u2019t scared to be toxic because Riot isn\u2019t vigilant about punishing players who intentionally feed, troll, or verbally abuse their teammates. Almost every person who\u2019s played\u00a0<em>League<\/em>\u00a0has more than one experience with toxicity and it\u2019s likely that the toxic person wasn\u2019t banned.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=KpTnmyECT4s&feature=emb_logo\r\n\r\n\u201cThere\u2019s no point in reporting people because Riot won\u2019t ban them,\u201d Voyboy said. \u201cNo one is scared of getting in trouble [and] no one is scared of being barred from solo queue. Riot has really made it clear\u2014through their lack of vocalization on the growing problems that the player base has been experiencing\u2014that they don\u2019t really care. If they did care, they would have done something by now.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe 25-year-old also mentioned that unless you type an offensive word that gets flagged by an automated filter, you likely won\u2019t get in trouble for your actions. This is tough for higher Elo players because they usually end up playing against the same people, which eventually means they\u2019ll get griefed again.\r\n\r\nEvery tier of\u00a0<em>League<\/em>\u00a0has experienced this type of toxicity for a long time, which has affected the game\u2019s reputation. Multiple pros and popular personalities also stepped up and agreed with Voyboy\u2019s statements, including <a href="https:\/\/twitter.com\/TSMDoublelift\/status\/1257469552717250560" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" aria-label=" (opens in a new tab)">superstar AD carry Doublelift<\/a>,\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/twitter.com\/Shiphtur\/status\/1257463333256658944" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" aria-label=" (opens in a new tab)">Danny \u201cShiphtur\u201d Le<\/a>, and CLG founder\u00a0<a href="https:\/\/www.reddit.com\/r\/leagueoflegends\/comments\/gdmys3\/voyboys_thoughts_on_na_solo_queue\/fpifp0q\/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" aria-label=" (opens in a new tab)">HotshotGG<\/a>.\r\n\r\n\u201cI pushed for changes through and through at Riot over the last eight years through many different channels,\u201d HotshotGG said. \u201cRiot hasn\u2019t made any effort because they don\u2019t want to or they\u2019re not capable. Competitive spirit is dying more and more every day and it feels monotonous grind is being promoted.\u201d\r\n\r\nIf this video reaches the necessary parties, it could make a difference.

Riot Games should look into fixing these issues before they get out of hand and force plays to quite the game.
