We’ve been tracking the increasing leaver penalty on your PVP.net account brutalbryse with some concern. Riot Games wants to remind you that leaving matches or idling within the match environment is not condoned.
We take both leaving matches early and idling very seriously as it damages the gaming experience for nine of your fellow Summoners. We discourage this behavior by taking action against those who make it a habit.
As such, you will be unable to play for one (1) day. If you are experiencing any unexplained disconnections or crashes, please contact us at http://support.leagueoflegends.com/ and we will be happy to resolve any technical issues you may be experiencing.
Are you sure you know what you’re talking about? Like, really sure. Or are you a low elo player, likely not even level 30, bitching about your team and trying to say you did everything right (when it clearly wasn’t)? If you’re a new/inexperienced player, chances are you’re wrong. Don’t try to convince people who know better that you aren’t.
Have you considered the mistakes you made in the game? If you lost, there’s a good chance that you fucked up too. Even if you don’t write about your mistakes, if you don’t remember that you’re to blame as well (on some level), you’re going to come off as an arrogant asshole. Don’t pretend to be perfect.
Are you sure you want to deal with the backlash you might get? Never assume no one will respond negatively, because someone almost always will. Nothing’s more annoying than that person who bitches about everyone else then gets overwhelmingly upset over other people telling them they’re wrong.
Not really something to ‘consider’… but remember, crying about it is just going to make people hate you more. By all means, rant as much as you want as long as you don’t come off as mentally retarded. But don’t sit there like “I TRIED REALLY HARD GUYS Q_Q” when you’re obviously a good portion of the reason you lost.
