‘Ruining it for others’: LoL players demand Riot block anyone with high ping

Incensed League of Legends players are today calling on Riot Games to implement more technical features that would prevent those who have struggling or poor internet connections from queuing for ranked matches.

One fed-up summoner sparked the discussion about the treatment of players on high ping on the League subreddit on Feb. 19, noting that a number of their games have been spoiled by a teammate who is suffering from latency issues. “There is a point to where it’s just ruining it for others if your monitor shows the team fight after it’s over and we’re all dead because one champion didn’t participate,” they said while demanding changes.
