Hello, League of Legends players! Given that spring has arrived and everything is waking up, we hope that your motivation is at a high level. This means that you will continue to practice your League of Legends skill and thus climb the rankings of the best League of Legends players.
League of Legends never ceases to surprise us with its events and new updates, so we look forward to seeing what it has in store for us in these upcoming spring days. Today we will offer you another how-to guide – we will talk about toxic players that make every League of Legends game frustrating and tiring.
However, Riot made it possible for toxic players to easily report and then Riot decides their fate. Or about the fate of their account, at least.
League of Legends is one of the currently most popular games globally. And it has held its high rank for years. In League of Legends, your task is to try to defeat the opposing team together with the other 4 members of your team by crashing their Nexus before they crash yours. Of course, this is just an introduction. There are many more rules and tips, but we’ll assume you know how League of Legends looks like.
What we are going to talk about today is a very important topic, not only in League of Legends but also in all multiplayer games. Hence, a problem that affects the entire online community.
It’s called harassment and it’s horribly toxic, ugly and unnecessary behavior that creates negative energy and affects the performance of the players who have to attend to it.
Toxic players are everywhere – these are the ones who deliberately choose the champion for trolling, these are the ones who from the beginning of the game start pressuring their teammates to improve their game, these are the ones who after a teammate loses their life start shouting at their teammate to uninstall League of Legends and start playing Solitaire.
There are a million more examples of toxic players and we’re sure you know at least a few too.
Luckily, Riot really has a quality reporting system and players who harass other players are penalized. Depending on the reason they are reported, their account may be temporarily or permanently banned from accessing the League of Legends client and the game.

Report Feature in League of Legends
In League of Legends, there is a special Reporting Feature system that allows players to report players for a variety of reasons. This can be verbal abuse, helping the enemy team, leaving the game for no reason, intentional feeding, cheating, hate speech, offensive or innapropriate name, negative attitude, griefing or refusing to play.
As you can see, there are many reasons why players can be penalized, so if you don’t want your teammates to report you you have to play safe and follow the rules of the game. You can read the rules of the game at any time on Riot’s official website, to remind yourself what you can and can’t do.
When a player is reported by other players, Riot will apply an appropriate penalty 15 minutes after the game is over. The type of penalty depends on the offense for which the player was reported.
The punishment system works as follows:
- First Offense: 3-Day Chat Restriction.
- Second Offense: 7-Day Chat Restriction.
- Third Offense: 14-Day Ban.
- Fourth Offense: Permanent Ban.
Chat restrictions reduce the number of messages a reported player can send to chat while a match is in progress. However, this still allows reported players to communicate with the team using emotes, voice chat, private messages or pings. Players who have a Two Week or Permanent suspension may have their sentences shortened for good behavior.
Some players can choose an innapropriate name to sign up for the League of Legends. In that case, their name may be inappropriate for other players and the player will be penalized and will have to change his summoner’s name for free.
The name may be offensive on racial, ethnic or national grounds, and may be vulgar or have sexual connotations that are inappropriate. If a player continues to choose such names, the penalty will be applied to his account or his honor level.

How To Report A Player In The League Of Legends?
In order to report an individual player you have to play a match with him. Either on the team or as his opponent. You can report players within the League of Legends client, even at the beginning of the game while the Champion Select is running.
It often happens that players start harassment before the start of the game. Just hover with the mouse cursor over their name and click on the red exclamation button (!).
Another option to report players is after the game is over and the post-game lobby opens. All stats and player contributions will be shown there. There, all you have to do is fill out the Player Report form that will appear next to all the players who played this match with you.
Can I Report Players In The League Of Legends Even Out Of The Game?
Fortunately, Riot has allowed its players to have the option to report players even after the game is over. Fortunately, Riot has allowed its players to have the option to report players even after the game is over. You may have simply forgotten to do it the moment the stats of the match show up, but you can very easily do it later.
Click on the following link https://support-leagueoflegends.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/360034625773-Report-a-Player-After-a-Game and fill out the form on this page.
To make your report more effective, write a detailed reason why report this player in the box. For example, if a player uses an innapropriate name you can write in the box “This player has a name that is offensive because it means … (here you can describe why that name is offensive). In this way, Riot will be able to more easily and quickly consider your reason for the report and thus file disciplinary action.
Remember that reporting is anonymous and that the reported player will not know who reported it. Unless you write to him yourself that you report him, which can cause a counter-effect because maybe he will report you out of revenge.
Wondering How Long It Takes Riot To Punish A Reported Player?
Well, it depends on several factors. There is no exact number of reports for a player to be penalized, but surely a player who constantly receives reports will be penalized much sooner than someone who has been reported several times at longer intervals.
Keep in mind that Riot really checks all the reports and that players who play unfairly, and at the same time are rude to other players, are punished. Riot encourages all players to report toxic players and thus contribute to the harmony of the League of Legends community.
So, don’t be shy, if a player verbally abuses you or in any way negatively affects your gameplay and your team’s progress, don’t hesitate to report him at the end of the game or via the form above.
When it comes to toxic players and ugly behavior, we all know that it greatly affects our game. From the very beginning, such players bring a negative mood that permeates the entire team.
They can write insults in the chat, they can have an inappropriate name that causes discomfort to other players, they can have the attitude from the start of the match that they do not want to win and they can cooperate with enemy players.
Because of all of this, Riot has a reporting system that allows players to report every player they’ve played with, and that his behavior has been offensive in some ways. In this article, we explained how the reporting system in the League of Legends works and in what ways you can report someone in or out of the game.
Use that option whenever you feel someone is not contributing to the whole team and thus help clean the League of Legends gaming community of bad players. Good luck and have fun!
