Toxicity and League of Legends... name a better duo. League is a game known for its toxic player base, and while it seems like Riot has been trying to combat issues with new features like automatically muting players, there is still a long way to go. 

A new feature has made it onto the PBE and is currently being tested. We predict it'll go live with the upcoming LoL Patch 13.9 and should make our lives a little easier when we encounter toxic players. 

LoL Patch 13.9: New Report Feature Added To PBE

On the Public Beta Environment (PBE) Riot is currently testing out some new report features. While it was just recently added to report players in game history, that hasn't been enough and Riot continues to promise to work on combatting toxicity in their games. 

Now they've added in-game reports as well. Have you ever had that moment where a player was awful in game and then you just want to leave the post-game lobby as quick as possible, but forget to report them? Well, that might not be an issue anymore with the new in-game report feature. 

How Does In-Game Reporting Work? 

Reporting another player while in-game is actually very simple. You just have to tab into the menu to see the other players, and the report button is literally right there next to the chat button as well. Above the chat symbol is an exclamation mark which you press and then you have the options for reports right there.

When you're in this menu you will see the usual options to report someone. The difference between the regular report and this one? Players can choose every single option. Whether Riot is going to change this ahead of the live launch i s to be seen. 

You can also revert your report before the end of the game, if ever the player in question starts to behave after throwing a tantrum. 

Overall, this is a decent change for League of Legends, and hopefully Riot will actually do something about the reports that will flood in. This likely won't completely stop players from being toxic, but it is at least good for others to have a way to report bad behaviour right away when it happens. 

Sick and tired of all these toxic people in League of Legends? Then you should try playing a single player game like the upcoming Star Wars Jedi Survivor. No annoying teammates, just you and the vast world of Star Wars.
