(personal opinions from me, i did not design this feature)
You are matched together with the intend that you play together.
Dodging itself impacts 9 players that now have been thrown out and have to wait for the next match. Thats likely one of the reasons why there is punishment to discourage this. Yes you might have valid reasons to dodge, then you will have to accept the punishment and weigh it up.
If not then you might just dodge every game just because not all four in your team won all of their last 10 games and clearly you can not be expected to carry them.
When it comes to trolling as soon as a player dodges you could interpret it as the troll being successful.
In regards of vote kick systems there are some interesting an more in depth discussions on this board than this thread.
Quote:Dodge once, 3 lp loss.
Dodge twice 10 lp loss.
Really? What if i get 2 trolls in a row? You gonna punish the honest player?
They don't want to play with Clairvoyance Revive Karma either.
When we removed the rating penalty from dodges, the amount of Champion Select trolls skyrocketed, because they knew that with such a mild penalty, they could easily make people dodge for them.
By re-introducing a meaninful penalty, players are less likely to put up with their **** because "No, I don't want to lose my LP because of you" and trolls quickly realize their efforts are only hurting themselves.
Quote:YEA! Don't dodge and let the troll have another chance at getting mid, lets instead have him make 9 people have a miserable experience for the next 20 minutes! I mean clearly he's not winning in that scenario or anything.
I thought you Riot guys were better than this :/ you cant honestly believe that about trolls can you?
That guy is out for himself. And only himself. Right now, he's getting pretty good feedback that he can yell, "MID OR FEED!!!!!!!111" and instalock AP Teemo and make people dodge until he gets it.
See how fast he changes his ways when people don't put up with his **** and he has a few miserable games in a row.
Now, he's definitely hurting the other players in the game. I can't deny that. But he's going to get his account removed really, really quickly when he gets reported by everyone for being a jerk.
It's just a culture thing. If we all, as responsible LoL players, say, "No, we're going to call your bluff, BRB getting you Tribunaled" the trolls all go away. These trolls exist because they're able to get you to dodge for them instead of standing up to them.
Quote:Yeah, how dare you make 9 people wait 8 seconds. Lets destroy 20-40 minutes of your work for not wanting to destroy 20-40 minutes of your work with a troll.
Dodging itself can be a form of trolling and be disruptive.
Quote:Anyone that played s1 early on knows the answer to this. There originally wasn't queue dodge very early on, they added it for a reason.<snip>
If they just wanted to play AP mid Teemo, they'd play Blind Pick Normal games and instalock Teemo and call "mid."
They're playing Draft Mode Ranked because they actually want to gain rating and get that next badge. They're being a dick and saying "AP Teemo mid or feed" because they don't know how to play any other champions and lack basic social skills.
And even if the above paragraph weren't true, he still wouldn't want to share that middle lane with the legitimate Morgana you already grabbed. That guy isn't going to have fun.
Quote:I don't think you guys get it, trolls are not out to win, they are out to have fun in their own sick and twisted way. You know how they do it? By making people miserable, it makes them happy and they laugh when people get angry. Riot obviously does not understand the nature of the troll.
