League of Legends Developer Shows How Raging Loses Games

This latest video from Riot Games breaks down the numbers, and shows how good sports make a difference.

Teamwork OP, League of Legends developer Riot Games claims, and it has a video to prove it. Sportsmanlike players win 1.7 more games than the rest, says Riot, and if you happen to be one of those that leaps on the slightest hint of poor play with venom and Mom jokes, then you're not just pounding that player, you're pounding your team's chance of winning. Teamwork is what'll win the match, and that isn't helped, says Riot, by screaming in chat.

This video is the latest in Riot's toxic player charm offensive. Not that long ago Riot hit the news with its Tribunal experimentation, trying to adjust player behavior in game by disciplining offenders. "There was another player, we showed him his logs," said Riot's Jeffrey Lin at the time, "and this player said 'I'm really disgusted by my own behavior. Can you guys give me a little guidance?'" But when discipline doesn't work, harsher methods are called for. This is the same game that banned several pro players for poor conduct, keeping top players out of the professional circuit for a short time, or - in IWillDominate's case - permanently.

Riot has reason to be concerned. The League of Legends player base has a rowdy reputation, but the game's eSports success story is growing by the minute. Last year's competition saw the largest cash prize pool in eSports history - $3 million - and this year, even after moving to a much larger 15,000 seat stadium, the LA competition sold out about an hour after tickets went on sale. With something like that on the line, the last thing Riot needs is for poor sportsmanship to be the League of Legends story.

Should try playing the Oceania server, normally Australians are very good at online games but in LoL its not stop rage and some people actually call for surrender votes. Also the standard of play is much worse than NA, which probably explains the constant rage.

The comments section in the Youtube video alternates between raging and people agreeing every time I hit refresh...

OT: It's actually really good that Riot constantly pushes players to behave, not just with ban-hammers, but with positive reinforcement aswell. A lot of people say it's all bullshit and stuff, but the multiplayer scene (atleast unranked) is getting steadily better, even if it's at a slow rate.

I wonder what other games could benefit form this kind of thing?

Only in League of Legends would something this obvious need to be spelled out in a two-minute video.

More power to them. Although I don't play LoL, it's nice that game companies are realizing the importance of community in online games and are actively trying to improve it.

And only in LoL would the message of something so obvious be swung at and missed by such a large % of the community.

Yeah right. Its the same in ALL Multiplayer games.
World of Tanks, TF2, BF3, DOTA, LoL, Call of Duty, Wolfenstein (though much less due to only veteran players being left), WoW... etc. Its only a question of more or less, but there are always people that seem to not understand neither sportmanship nor teamwork.

I want such a video for World of Tanks... very often do I see people go neo-nazi all-knowing general on eachother... or start just killing eachother... and the team loses :(

I find games always go better when people keep there cool. It's just more stressful when someone starts screaming about FEEEEEEDERRRR!!!!! 3 minutes into a game. I wish if Riot wants to go this route, they could give some more concrete data than, "trust us, ragers lose more."

Well said. Every online team game in existence could use something like this, statistical proof that raging does not help.

Do you really need a comparison to understand how toxic the MOBA community is?

Edit: apparently there's a tutorial mode or some shit now. So this isn't as relevant.

It's pretty much: "Here's a bunch of shit you need to know but won't be told. Instead, you'll have to learn it organically through playing the game. Except instead of being able to do that, your inability to do these things will lead us to report the shit out of you instead. Enjoy your ban."

This has been researched and disproved many a times. Its not the ARTS(see what I did there?) community, its the internet at large. The difference is that there are actually very few games out there where you're forced to communicate and cooperate with such a large amount of people a day, and where teamwork, like stated in the video, is directly linked to success or failure. Sure you can have a bad experience in Call of Duty, battlefield or css if you have bad teammates there as well, but it wont make your aim worse. Where in ARTS styles games the opponents gets directly stronger, and you comparatively worse the worse your teammates are doing. Thats why it may seem like these people are the worst of the worst the world has to offer, but in reality its just a cross section of the internet as a whole ;)

That's why there are two separate tutorials, a co-op mode with varying difficulty levels and numerous online references.

And they don't even let you play legit PvP until you're level 3 anymore. So clearly you haven't played the game anytime recently.

Isn't this kind of preaching to the converted? I doubt someone who doesn't realise the things mentioned in the video (or simply doesn't care) would go "Ooh, so this is a team game? I was wondering why I've been playing with four other people all this time. And who would have thought that people don't like being insulted? I better stop doing it this instant!"

Hazy:

From my experience there's nothing particularly toxic about ARTS players, that's just a myth, along with the genre's supposed difficulty. There're just as many unfriendly people playing ARTS games as any other multiplayer genre - unfriendly people are an inherent part of the society, after all. They may be just easier to notice in ARTS games since your failure directly aids the enemy team.

shadowmagus:

I have some screencaps from Bad Company 2 text chat that suggest that this is not the case.
This also holds true there: if you have at least a team of 3 helping each other out, you can stay on top of the charts even if you're not a very good player.
We need a video like this for the Battlefield series. We also need to get every player to watch it.

Actually, a game where this holds even more truth is Guns of Icarus. I've had team mates in that game that were worse than AI. I've also played with some players capable of following orders (mostly as an engineer, being someone that follows orders), and I've witnessed how you can absolutely trash an opponent then. VoIP plays a big role here, because if it wasn't for that, coordinating would be much more difficult. I see that when playing BFBC2: we have a team, of which about half tries to coordinate, but can't. Just because VoIP is broken.

I agree with the sentiment and I feel I perform better in a positive team than a negative one. That said, correlation does not equal causation though. I would like the actual data and reports behind this instead of a pretty youtube video that's done in that stupid "moving text" style that Ford got hold of and ran into the ground with their shitty truck commercials.

Could it just be that people lose 35% more games and are thus simply more bitter about it?

Don't get me wrong, I WANT to see everyone be nice in LoL but I'm interested in how they came to these conclusions.

Yeah, spot on, because I decided to get out while I still could. Maybe it's just me, but when I get kicked in the balls, I don't typically stick around to see if it hurts any less the second time around.

Actually, having bad teamates in CS does affect your effectiveness just as much as it does in DoTA-like games. Your example of a player's death negatively affecting their team while simultaneously being beneficial to their oposers stands. Everytime a teamate of yours gets killed in CS, the enemy team gets money for weapons and equipment. Your team is also way less likely to win that round, further expanding the money gap between teams. After a while, your team will be deploying considerably worse equiped than your adversaries, and, therefore, objectively less likely to win.

Almost every other online multiplayer game I've played. League of Legends, because of it's design, is always going to be a very hostile environment. It's a 'Free to play' MOBA/DOTA that uses in game gold and micro-transactions. Since you are competing for something with a perceived value (gold) the competitive matches have a perceived high stakes for some players.

The game puts you under constant pressure to get more gold and therefore if matches start to go bad it makes some people feel like they are losing actual money. That's why the game is such a pressure cooker. It's taken so seriously it's almost impossible to have fun, it's like high end raiding in Wow used to be at it's worst.

The barrier to entry for newer players to prevent this is also a bad thing in my view. It makes the game seem more 'skill' based than it actually is for veteran players. Many regular MOBA players really do take themselves to be like the online gaming elite. Overall it's a VERY toxic environment for many sorts of players.

Drat, they're on to my secret weapon.

There is however one small thing that bothers me about their message. I'm all for not rageing, but they also seem to suggest you should always stick by raging teammates. Showing even a little empathy towards your raging teammates' situation can indeed cause amazing comebacks for teams that by all rights should have fallen victim to inner animosity. This I know from personal experience. But just as often there's just no reasoning with a rager any more, in which case the correct reaction is probably to just leave the game. Not because you're likely going to lose anyway, but because there's a limit to how much bile you should be willing to swallow just to win a round of LoL (or whatever game). After all, aren't you supposed to be having fun?

The fact that you are actively punished (low priority qeues or whatever) for "leaving early" adds to my suspicions that riot does not understand the above concept.

You have to admire Riot's effort to detoxify their playerbase (and this video applies to other playerbases too) so bravo to them.

Personally I don't play League partly because of it's reputation but if I did I'd be super proud of their efforts.

At the risk of sounding like a silly little fanboy, I've personally only ever had maybe 5-10 people in all my 100+ games of DotA2 be so negative and anti team. More often do people communicate and work together. DotA2 isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination but putting it in the same negativity league as League seems unfair to me.

I found this on the CS:GO subreddit, since we have problems with team hostility as well. It's a good video, and I'm glad the developers made it.

As bad as LoL is, DOTA1 was worse.
Much, much worse.

Why? No means of effective punishment. One rager leads to two Leavers which leads to lopsided games...it was a domino effect.
But the same lesson applies, even if the majority of players are unwilling to listen to it.

Or you could just put the player on ignore. That makes it where the teams will still have an even number of players, though admittedly the enemy team is still likely to win.

Complain about toxic players. But bait for rage. Good work.

I love how all the smart kids jump out of the bushes, pointing fingers and yelling "Haha, everybody knew that already".

If everybody knows that why have I not seen that in any online community I ever participated in? Be it RPG (UO, Anarchy Online, DAOC and WoW), online RTS (SC2, WC3), online FPS (CS 1.3-1.6, CS:GO, TF2) or the ARTS genre (DOTA2). In each of those games I've seen more failure rise from the toxicity of other players. Too many people seem to assume that voicing criticism spiced with insults and flames will somehow increase the morale of the others instead of damage it.

Just as an example: I lost perfectly winnable games because people on my team started flaming and others started playing sloppy as well. I won games that were nearly lost because instead of flaming the teammember the teammates just wrote a short sentence that he please should stop doing X, then the game improved and when the first payoff came in a won teamfight everyone realised that we still have a big chance to winning. We caught up a 16k gold disadavantage in DOTA2 by just not flaming each other, even if we were angry with how person X played.

The fact that the psychological damage to the own team through flaming can lose you games is not known. And if it is then I'm asking myself why the fuck people seem to ignore it and still flame and lose games due to that.

Have you ever actually played League of Legends? Because the part about "in game gold and mirco-transactions" sounds like you're describing a completely different, unrelated game and reminds me of peoples complaints that the game is "pay to win".

The involvement of real-world money in LoL is in purchasing Riot Points (RP); RP is a meta-currency that you can use to buy Summoner (account) boosts, champion skins, unlock champions, or unlock extra runebook pages. The skins don't actually give any advantage to you in-game, so the only reason to buy them is because you personally like it and want to use it. In other words, it's entirely optional. Boosts come in two flavors: Influence Point boosts (IP is accumulated on your account whenever you play a game (you get more for winning, but still get some even if you lose)) and XP boosts (your account has its own leveling (1-30) that grant perks in the form of additional slots for runes and skill-trees (masteries)). Both of these boosts will trade real-world money for in-game time by having to play fewer games to accumulate the same meta-resources, but don't grant you access to anything that would be otherwise inaccessible ((author's note- I advise against using these, the perks you get will not counterbalance the game-sense that you lose out on by not playing as much)). The possible exception to this lies in the rune slots and mastery points being unlocked more slowly, but again they are not in any way gated behind a pay-wall, you will just need to play for a bit longer to get them. Unlocking champions and extra runebook pages are again examples of exchanging real-world money for in-game time; both of these things can be unlocked with IP gained through normal play.

The point of all that is to demonstrate that this model truly does support the idea of "free to play" in that any involvement of real-world money is completely unnecessary to the overall experience or to winning.

With the chapter on meta-resources concluded, let's dig in to your other point: gold. Gold is a purely in-game resource that starts at a default value for every player in each game (though a certain mastery can give you a bit more), gets accumulated both passively at a set rate in-game and as a reward for certain in-game actions, and gets reset after each game; you can scrabble for resources all you want, but it will not help you in anything beyond strengthening your character for this fight. Efectively, this means that your gold (and any gameplay elements concerning it) are, once again, completely disconnected from any involvement with real-world money. Yes, you do want to get more in-game resources to make your character more powerful, but the same could be said for any number of other games and even other genres (Starcraft, Modern Warfare series, etc.) and as such there is nothing inherent to MOBA's in general or LoL in particular which suggests this as a cause for concern.

Again, it seems like you truly haven't researched the topic much so this post is geared mostly towards education rather than argument. That being said, I don't generally enjoy having a pet favorite game of mine unjustly insulted, so please try to stick to justified ones :)

The fact that you are actively punished (low priority qeues or whatever) for "leaving early" adds to my suspicions that riot does not understand the above concept.

While I agree with the spirit of your post, I do take issue with this section. Leaving the game to avoid a rager/flamer/troll seems like a bit of an extreme reaction. An alternative to this is to use the "Mute Player" function provided in-game (hold [Tab] to bring up the scoreboard and click the speech-bubble next to the offender's name). This completely suppresses that player's comments on your screen, both in team-chat and in all-chat. One player shouldn't have the power to completely ruin other people's gameplay experience, and with this method they won't; you can keep playing, and they get to keep spewing vitriol into a vacuum.

The penalty for leaving a match early does not suggest that Riot lacks understanding of how trolls can damage fun, but rather demonstrates their understanding of it. Just as a person raging in chat can be damaging to player morale, so too can one of their teammates disconnecting because they no longer want to play. I explained above how to deal with a rager, so their presence should not constitute a valid reason for disconnecting early as they have no more power to speak to you than you decide to give them. If you disconnect early, the rest of your team's efforts are now crippled n sch a way that defeat is usually inevitable. You may get what you want, but anyone else who wanted to win or even just wanted more time to practice with a new champion is now denied what they wanted from the experience; just because a game is supposed to be fun for everyone does not give you the right to define "fun" for anyone else.

Given this explanation, can you see how leaving early can be as much a tool of trolls and ragers as the in-game chat functions, and as such why the punishment exists?

That video seems like something they'd show children in school to get them to cooperate on certain tasks or whatever. If I was a LoL player I'd feel like Riot was talking down to me.

I don't know which is more offputting; Riot thinking a majority of their players are 12 year olds which lack basic thinking skills and treating them as such or that majority actually existing.

Oh well, not like the DOTA community would be any better...

Hey, if you're into that sort of thing, more power to you. You seem to like TF2 as well, so maybe it's just your tastes.

Probably because a few are just dumb and the rest simply don't care. Yeah, breaking news: some people don't value their DOTA 2 winrate that highly, they get more pleasure from flaming someone who fucked up than they do from spelling it out for them kindly and losing anyway half the time.

TheKasp:

No you didn't, you caught up by playing better. You don't win games by just being nice, that's not how DOTA2 works, or League for that matter.

I allways perceived HoN (Heroes of Newerth) to be even more toxic then LoL. I'm wondering why it didn't come up yet^^

I would like to see the raw data, too. The conclusions are surprisingly drastic...

Though, in my experience many ragers are doing ok'ish up to actually quite good, in their individual performance. Their issue is not seeing the bigger picture. I think you've got to have a decent amount of selfesteem to totally trashtalk someone else.

I think the losing-more-often and raging-at-teammates have a common reason: Lacking understanding of teamplay. That'd explain the correlation of those two.

That being said, I absolutely commend Riot for their efforts of improving their community.

What? NO!

Dude, believe me, leavers are much worse than ragers. People who rage can be muted, sometimes (very rarely, but still) reasoned with, but those people? Unless you are super fed, or you really outsmart the enemy team, you're going to lose those 4v5 matches. Also, remember that it's a 5 person team. 1 raging neanderthal is not the reason to leave and have 3 other people suffer because you had enough.

It's a sensitive topic for me, because this is exactly how my last ranked game went. At ~20 minute stage, I was 5/2 Talon with a decent farm, and our Vayne caught 3 kills in the first 5 minutes, we were slowly approaching their base. We should be golden, right? Nope. Our Fiddlesticks decided he had enough of supporting (he was the last pick, and he called role last as well, he raged and bitched, but eventually went with support runes and masteries, so I thought it will be fine), and told us to f*** ourselves, and left. The enemy team team started winning teamfights, at first with one survivor with low HP, and then steadily started to overpower us, took Baron, wiped us, and took the game. Boom. 4 people who could already see a won game just got crushed, because one person decided he doesn't want to play that way.

Sorry, but unless your internet just died, there's no excuse for leaving the game. The rager can be muted, and with full teams you can still win despite all the flame on the chat. Leaver is permanently damaging the team. Period.

OT: I totally agree. Even if I'm pissed at someone, I just stay silent. I report a lot after a game, but if I realize that raging won't get us anywhere, and sometimes a simple "gj" after a successful gank can do wonders. Video posted on my FB wall.

In tournaments, yes, absolutely. In pubs? No one cares one way or the other. It doesn't affect you greatly that one of your 10 teammates rushed into mid and got sniped by the enemy AWP. You can still win the round if you're good enough. Hell, it might not even matter if you win the round. All that matters is how many headshots, nades and kills you can land. And if your teammates are so monkey retarded that you can't even start the round before you get shot in the back, you can just find yourself another server. In dota, if even one of your teammates does something stupid, it can ruin the whole game which can last more than 40 minutes, and it might not matter how well you yourself play, you'll still lose.

edit: I use dota because thats what I play. Same goes for every other moba out there, of course.
