Riot has been on a long journey to eliminate total jerkoffs from their servers, and their post about the new rules is both firm and fair: Related to Ranked Restrictions, we’ve determined that Ranked Rewards should reward positive sportsmanship just as much as they reward great play, so the most negative players who are Ranked Restricted at the end of the season will be ineligible to earn ranked end of season rewards such as the loading screen borders or Victorious Morgana champion skin.
While the majority of players will not be affected by this ruling, we wanted to message it well in advance so that players concerned about their behavior have more than enough time to adjust and reform before the end of the season.
Rolling out on servers in North America and Europe in the latest patch, this new service will monitor in-game chat, restricting “negative players,” and preventing them from joining ranked (read: Important) matches until they’ve played a set number of normal draft (read: Not Important) matches without behaving like a complete asshole.
While these “negative” players are hanging out in normal land, they’re also restricted from chat – but they can still be reported by others if they continue to be toxic butts.
