League of Legends: "Toxicity"
Posted: Monday October 19th, 2015 by

League of Legends. You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. As such, the folks at Riot have been fighting asshattery within their community "forever", and the environment is still absolutely repellent. Though in their continuing efforts to lighten the atmosphere just enough to continue drawing in new players, Riot is proofing a new tactic associated with account naming. Players who have had their names flagged as inappropriate now have to complete two "Narcissistic Personality" tests as bookends to playing 50 matches with an interim name that Riot gives them. This, of course, does little to improve the LOL community's toxic undercurrent. It is however one more positive pebble in the pond.

In trying to give Ted a suitably offensive I with through a laundry list of options: MomGobbler, Moist Panties, ThunderGunt, etc., I found it hard to come up with "original" names not already represented within the massive LoL playerbase (67 million players per month). I was going to just go with Thunder Taint, despite it already being in use, but was committed to finding something that, at least until this comic goes live, remains available. Taint Wrangler is also up for grabs. Just saying. I can't imagine those are "appropriate", but as long as your attitude flies under the Riot-radar, I imagine you can cling to your cringe inducing sobriquet a bit longer than the wealth of abusive f@#kwits making the rounds out there in LoL-land.

Alrighty, this comic took long enough finalize. Off to work on the next one!
While I do that what are the best, and worst, names YOU've come across in LoL?
