So toxicity seems to be something people feel strongly about in the community. But when you ask individuals what they considered to be toxic behaviour it varies from person to person. Some argue non meta builds are toxic, for others it’s dodging matches for me it’s selfishiness (locking in a second laner when you’re third in draft for instance).
So how about SEMC gives us the choice to avoid playing with individuals we believe to be toxic? By allowing us to withdraw them from matchmaker when we hit the search button, putting them into a “sin bin” if you like.
If someone continues to behave in a toxic manner they’ll find search times getting longer and longer as there behaviour excludes them from the wider playing community. It’ll also help people to avoid that lost elo when matching with a known troll (a curse for the average soloq player).
Obviously there would need to be a limit on this “sin bin”; be it number of individuals you can sin bin at a time or perhaps a time limit on their duration in the bin.
But it would enable the user to decide what they as an individual consider to be toxic and avoid repeat behaviour offenders. Nobody likes being trolled for twenty minutes only to match with the same individual next match for round two.
