Regardless of who you are, or what you are, nothing is going to be perfect. I can’t think of anything in this world that doesn’t have a couple of flaws to it. You can take perfection, and if you dig deep enough to the core of it, you’re going to find something wrong. In this case, we’re talking about League of Legends. I have combed through the Internet to find five things that people feel are bad about League of Legends. Before we begin, think about it, what could those things be?
Now, let’s begin. Without further ado, I bring you the five bad things about League of Legends…
1. Toxic Players
Come on, I’m sure you knew this one was going to be on my list. Now, it may not be the game itself that is bad, but the toxic players in the game sure can ruin something good. Now, this is pretty self-explanatory if you ask me – you get angry often within the community, and many times, it’s for almost nothing. Do you remember the last time you got so angry at the game or someone in the game? All of that anger may have even kept you up at night. Now, how do you feel about it? It probably doesn’t bother you as bad right now, but at the time, you felt bad.
Toxic players can really get into your head, and that’s precisely what they want to d …they feed off of that. Fortunately, Riot Games created that report button for a reason (they don’t like their game being toxic), so whenever you feel someone is toxic to you, please, by all means, file that report, it only takes a minute and is a great way to get the anger out of your head and then move on.

The matchmaking is a bit tricky and will vary from person to person, and is based on different situations. There have been times when my friends couldn’t play because we aren’t in the same time zone or with the same hours, so I played solo more than I like to say I did. During this time, I found more AFK teammates than I have ever witnessed in any game, with the exception of Rocket League – With Rocket League, I always ran across people farming items AFK. Then, there were times when I was matched up against full-party teams that had a couple of high-ranking competitive players.
3. You Can Lose Friends
Now, I know gaming is all about socializing and having fun. It’s one of the things I like to do with my friends, but if you’re not careful, you could end up losing friends and doing more harm than good. It’s never personally happened to me, but I had some buddied that played LoL, and they got into fights over everything and anything. For example, if you don’t have the correct build, you can count on them to let you know about it. If you’re not a good enough support, they’re going to scream at you. If you’re not making the right moves, they’re going to whisper about it. This is like toxicity with the normal players, except with people you’re supposed to like and be friends with. Sometimes, people are just too serious about a game like League of Legends, so when they bring a friend into it, they’re going to complain about every small thing they do wrong. I knew someone like this – they introduced the game to a friend and complained about every move.
What’s funny is they weren’t playing ranked, and the game wasn’t based on money or anything like that. The guy wasn’t even giving constructive criticism. He was yelling and making the new person feel terrible about himself. I’m going to tell you right now if you find yourself doing this to your friends, stop right there – gaming is not supposed to rip you apart, it’s supposed to bring people together. Gaming isn’t supposed to be friends hating each other for small things, it’s meant to bring you close together.
Do you want to play fair until the bitter end? That’s great! However, there are some people that aren’t going to do this. They start to lose or start having a bad time, so they leave without even thinking twice. They don’t even care how this would affect the other people in the game. They just leave. It goes something like this “You have a great game and screw you guys. I don’t care what happens.”
5. Getting new skins only for the champion to get nerfed
Now, I believe this is intentional. I understand that Riot is a company, and they need to make money in order to stay afloat and pay their workers. It wouldn’t make business sense to nerf a champion and then launch a cool skin for them; it wouldn’t sell as much. SO they’re going to offer a skin, let people buy it, and then nerf the champion – that would only make sense. Here, let me give you an example – do you remember when Riot introduced Pulsefire Caitlyn – it was a pretty good skin and was introduced in May of 2017. Guess who got nerfed shortly after that. That’s right, Caitlyn.

Just because I listed 5 bad things about LoL, that doesn’t make it a bad game. Honestly, there are so many positive aspects to the game, and in the end, as long as you’re having fun with it and it’s something you look forward to, that’s all that matters. Just make sure when you play it, you’re not mean to your friends. Stay in your lane, play your part, and League of Legends can be a lot of fun – it can even bring people closer together as they work together to get somewhere. I have actually met some new friends in League of Legends, so it can also be a great place to meet like-minded people. Now, think back to the beginning of this post; when I told you to think of some bad things about LoL – go ahead and drop those in the comments and explain them to me.
