Oceania, the most toxic server

Trolls exsist everywhere, not just oce. I remember when oce opened there was a thread on the NA forums, that was quickly locked, about transfering accounts just to troll on the new server.

Also I do believe most of the feeders/afkers are NOT due to server issues. It is because some sad little people think it's fun to ruin the game for everyone else.

Hey OP, I know the feels. Things came to a head recently and I found myself writing down thoughts that I had been lingering on for some time. It ended up being a feedback support ticket, which I feel would be relevant to share here.

Quote:


To whom it may concern,

I am writing this to give some feedback on the completely toxic environment within the OCE LoL community and I am hoping to receive an immediate and serious response as to what workable solutions you will be bringing forward in the near future.

I could start by introducing myself as a player of many years who has both enjoyed and spent many hundreds of dollars on the game. However, I feel that is completely irrelevant and trying to elevate me above other members of the community. Yet a similar egocentric attitude is adopted by countless trolls, griefers, harassing and flaming summoners who continue to do so with apparent impunity, completely mocking the code of conduct you have provided and whatever resources you are using to combat such players. No player should feel that this is acceptable, nor be above anyone else when it comes to punishment and consequences.

I understand you do take such matters seriously - or so you say - and punish players through the report system, but it is NOT working. Now I - like many others of the OCE community - have been patient and understanding towards your resources, but the server isn't fresh anymore, the honeymoon period is well and truly over. It's time to take serious steps towards improving the playing environment for every player who takes the codes of the game and basic human morals seriously.

How long would you hold an interest in playing a game where the most disgusting abuse is not only common place, but also recurrent from game to game? Losing is demoralising enough without, for example, having to deal with talk of someone raping your sister. It is also hard to avoid being sucked into the toxic decay of conduct and I have seen many who have remained patient for 10-20-30 mins until finally losing their cool and their heads, which I am guilty of as much as the next person.

I want to see an end to this toxic environment and I feel the first step is the implementation of a workable tribunal system for OCE. Although forum posts on this matter reassure everyone that the Riot team is working hard and take this seriously, I'd like you to reflect on the adage "actions speak louder than words" and that now's the time to do just that.

Since we - the community - cannot take matters into our own hands, aren't privy to your deadlines and continue to suffer the current state of immoral conduct within the OCE community then all the suffering is on us, no matter how hard you're working. I have a right to feel safe and protected within an online game and able to enjoy it to it's potential. Right now I cannot stress how far that feeling is from my acceptable boundaries.

The focus for the Riot team should be on improving every players experience in the game and at this critical moment that means removing horrible players and eradicating this horrible playing environment. Do you have the resources to do this and take the issue seriously? If not then consider this my job application to get on board to the best of my capacity, because if yours is stretched you'll need all the help you can get.

Looking forward to your response.

Regards,
Tim



I held out little hope for anything but a stock standard PR response and what came was exactly that:

Quote:
Hello Summoner,

Reporting players in the post-game lobby is still the best way to highlight a player's negative behavior. We use these reports to perform behavior audits. In these audits, we punish players who have been reported frequently. Thank you for your patience, and for taking time out of your day to send us this report!

For more information on our behavior audit, check out WookieeCookie's explanation on the forums:

In guiding me towards the behaviour audit section the Rioter completely failed when considering that:

1. The latest bi-weekly update on the behaviour audit was from January this year (almost 6 months ago)

2. I was reporting on the extreme toxcity of the server in a support ticket I penned 6 days ago

To rebuff my serious and heartfelt concerns, posted June 15th 2014, by directing me to a behaviour audit that began in November last year and hasn't been heard of since January this year is ludicrously insulting. It shows a serious missed opportunity for a Riot team member to take notice of current feedback on the playing environment and the impact it is having and thus reflect on the success of their behaviour audit and related efforts.

I didn't expect someone to read what I'd written with the capacity to think "why am I hearing this concern for the toxic environment when we've been reporting the great success we've had in rooting out the biggest trouble makers with our behavioural initiatives?". No what I expected, and got, was a PR template response. For Riot, dealing with issues in such a way makes sense as long as the profits are still there. Riot is a company, so more than likely its care factor is determined by its profitability.

The real irony is that I went and bought a couple of the latest skins because they look cool, the catch 22 is having (more) pretty skins and an ugly game to play them in. Unfortunately, for Riot to really learn to read and have an increased care factor a significant number of players would need to be disenchanted enough to stop supporting their content and/or quit.

Until disgruntled players like myself stop supporting their content, Riot's incentive to spend money and resources on complicated matters such as player behaviour and game experience is greatly reduced. Even though I am losing patience, but still inexplicably giving Riot money, the only real loser is me.

The tribunal is coming.
Also since OCE is small the ammount of toxic players just seems to be more.
Percenagewise yes, actual numbers no.
Back in NA it's different, the actual numbers are high, but the percenage is low due to a high server population.

Just keep reporting, they can't be banned if they don't get reported.


Surely you see how higher percentage of toxic players is worse? and therefore (relatively) lower numbers of toxic players SHOULD make it easier on a system to remove said players? pretty sure the whole 'tribunal is coming' excuse has been extremely overused (The cake is a lie). these past few weeks I've seen whole teams go afk one by one, and its almost always a domino effect caused by one troll.

Riot, this got out of hand a while ago, and OCE has become unplayable. Well done.

Well we are fed up with this problem. My friends have stopped spending money on rp and they created tons of accounts and selling them for $10 each. Most of the accounts are S1+. They make a good money tho. I guess thats one of the reason why there are so many noobs and trolls in rank games nowadays.Kids buy accounts or boosters.

As a jungle main, I'm sick of being called: d*ckhead, c*nt, r*tard or downy as soon as another team member cannot win their lane or doesn't receive a gank while overextending. The Oceania server is so toxic it is an embarrassment.

IKR we jungle and support mains get it the worst. Someone has to do the job or you will get flamed for not doing it.
The few skilled Nid supports , who actually support, get flamed because there is the slight risk of a ks nidalee evolving.
While someone being forced to jungle, a role that most people will choose support over if they really had to, end up being abused, because they have no clue how to play a position they dread. then, if you truly are sh*t at a position, no one will care as they will assume your trolling.
Just freaking imagine. A LOL SERVER WHERE PLAYERS TRUST EACH OTHER TO HELP THEM OUT. It would be magical

OCE is basically Australia in server form. Designed to put all the toxic players into one server!

I completely support this idea.
