    What to do when you have a toxic team mate?

    I had one pretty recently because I chose Bellona and they were angry because I wasn't just running out straight into the enemy team while they were under tower while there were no minions. They said I was the tank and meant to take blows without attacking. I counter and say that they expect a new player (One who hasn't even been playing for a week) to know all the gods roles and abilites? That did shut them up but that did put me on tilt. We did win somehow but that stuff is very similar to trolls in League where they expect a new player to know all 130 champs passives, skills and so forth.

    Is there anyway to report them for that or not?

    Troll them of course!

    You can report/block players you deem toxic in the post-game lobby.

    after the match during score screen you can report them by clicking on exclamation mark button
    I know what I have become... I am the inside of this world... I taste the gore, and I smell the crying... AND I WANT MORE! I want to bathe in your flesh, I want to savor your fear. I wanna live inside a castle built of your agony, AND I WANT TO CRUMBLE IT WITH AN AXE TO YOUR CAROTID ARTERY!

    Can you report people for divulging pertinent information though? I mean, the op did say they shut up after they revealed they were new, and it sounds like something that is more symptomatic of poor matchmaking than actual toxicity, the only evidence put forward being op going on tilt after the exchange, but knowing only the vague context in which this happened it seems to me that advocating reporting other players who tell someone that they are playing a god that is designed to frontline that then shut up when informed of that players experience with the game is somewhat irresponsible.

    The chat when something like this

    Ah Puch: Bellona, go in front of the minions
    Ah Puch: Bellona you ****, you are a tank, go take damage
    Bellona: I'm a new player
    Ah Puch: You should know the role of the god you are playing
    Bellona: Oh really? You expect a new player to know how each god works when they haven't even been playing for a week?
    Ah Puch: ...

    And that's a rough recollection of what was said.

    We have starkly different viewpoints on what constitutes as toxicity then, and that the person shut up after you informed them of your inexperience further proves that.

    Conversely, put yourself in their probable shoes. Is it fair that experienced vets get paired with new players? Granted, everyone has to learn, but doing that within an environment of similarly experienced players is usually more beneficial than deep end shark water testing. Its not exactly ideal for them to have to carry people who are unfamiliar with what is expected of them in each role.

    Like I said, its symptomatic of poor matchmaking. People are allowed to be frustrated by these things, which is what your dialogue indicates, not toxicity. If people say "ffs will you please frontline?", maybe consider that as blunt advice. If they say "ffs why are you not frontlining were you dropped as a baby plse go kys" then regard that as toxicity, as that is an attack on you which was provoked by actions in a game. One is blunt but pertinent advice, the other is over the top reactionary abuse. Obviously it would be better if their terminology was slightly more conciliatory, but its far from toxic.

    xD if it was anyone besides Ah Puch that could've been me.

    I was paired with a account level 18 Ymir twice in a row, so new he thought him being level 1 ymir meant anything. His first two items were damage and he didn't understand why he was getting shredded, so I gave him a build and we were Gucchi for both two individual rounds he lost together.

    By go take damage, they are meaning go soak damage or go block damage etc. They are asking the tank to force the enemy to focus on them and give the squishies an opening.
