Recently, I have been meeting a number of new players, as well as meeting old ones during my normal time playing solo queue.
There was some questions in the previous Q&A about 2 weeks ago, which got me thinking quite a bit when it came to how it affected me and my friends who are also competing in this game, as well as how it affected random players who play the game for fun.
One question was asked, What is being done about the toxic pro community?
I will not comment on who asked it, or if i personally don't like the way it was phrased.
However, I will immediately state that i disagree that one can just regard it as a whole Pro Community being toxic. I personally would've asked how turbine would deal with toxic pro players (individually).
But nevertheless, I feel this question was highly unfair towards the pro players who are currently in the scene. I came to this conclusion only today due to a couple events.
I've met a couple players repetedly in numerous games over a couple weeks, due to having played the game a lot more time than most people, I knew my way round the meta and how to single handedly carry games, as well as a couple times i met him whilst grouped with 4 friends of mine, whom i really enjoy playing with.
Needless to say, these players got first of all frustrated at me, having lost game after game to me, because I knew my way to how to get my momentum going and winning the game for my team, and of course this only escalated when i queued with more people with me.
I tried giving some advice, on how to improve, or what they should seek to do to improve. However if i posted the return comments I got I'd have to censor more text than one would be able to read.
Therefore, towards the comment where someone referred to the pro community as toxic, I'd like to ask, what is people's attitude in game when you meet us? when you see us in game, do you strive to improve yourself to reach our level? or do you simply start insulting whomever is laning against us if they die a couple times? And that one time that u beat us, why is there the need to insult us and say that we r **** (everyone knows what word that was) instead of understanding that like everyone else we are human beings that can faulter at any point in time, maybe have a bad game, or maybe i was trying out something new that went wrong.
As a final comment, to the Devs, I'd like to ask what is done about the queue changes, as I've been seeing people go into game before me, coming out and going into a new game, whilst I'm hours in queue, then I get a queue, it lasts 15min because the enemy team surrenders and flames me, then they get a queue again and I don't
Finally, I'd like to put something out there that apparently common people didn't come to on their own, I'm a human, I do everything humans do and I'm not a perfect programmable robot, so when you decide to try wishing me cancer just cos you lost 1 match in a game, try thinking about what you're doing and how badly it may affect someone.
Thanks for taking your time to read.
