    No "witch hunting", but what is done about players deserving it?

    Seriously though, came back to this game because other MOBAs are just bad, and I come back to everyone and their mother disconnecting when they don't get their way. Literally no reason to, had a chance, then they disconnect because they died once, or we lost a tower, and the game is an automatic loss.

    What is being done about these players? Is anything being done, or is this a legitimate tactic in this game? I literally have never run into people disconnecting mid match this much in any other MOBA, yet it seems like commonplace here. I simply don't understand the idea behind allowing this behavior wholesale, yet trying to warn others about these players is a big no no.

    "Witch hunting" is not a thing, and shouldn't have a rule against it, if players want to ruin their reputation by spamming the "bye" emote, then disconnecting, that is their problem. They should have a smaller pool of people to play with them.

    There isn't a good enough system to detect afk and just leaving isn't punished heavily enough.

    Most game's official forums don't like it since it is one person word against another.

    The issue is proving it.

    Most of the punishment system is automated. So a bunch of people report someone in a short timeframe? They get actions against them. That kind of automation, doesn't take into account WHAT they did (If anything at all) just that they received X reports within Y timeframe.

    In order to allow "Witch Hunting" to occur, everything would need to be recorded and reviewed by actual people, since no automated system would be able to accurately judge malicious intent (Especially given the sarcastic way people use the VGS, with stuff like "Thank you!" "Cancel That!")

    Which is outside of the realms of feasibility, especially given how implementing this sort of manual review system would give said toxic players more fuel with which to be a pain in the arse, by reporting everyone they can so that someone has to go and check each of those players...

    As such, there's not a whole lot that can be done about it. So there can be no proof to back up claims made on the forums and as such "Witch Hunting" is universally banned on forums because it can be stirring up hatred for someone who may be entirely innocent (If you have hard proof, such as a screenshot showing their text whereby they mention something to the effect of them maliciously leaving the game, then you can send that to support for them to review)
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    The funny part is if everybody began reporting everybody after every game people could literally ban each other, and this is allowed.
    Its only at the mercy of people's lack of interest in this that keeps this system unabused.

    For example i could invite 3 of my buddies to a party then invite a random guy from my guild, play a game of arena, then ask our enemies in pm to reprot him because he was toxic, likelyhood is half of them would reprot him, then our entire team could report him and boom he gets his first warning, then repeat twice or thrice more and he is banned.

    Good job smite.

    Nope wont happen.

    The KI ban system only gives you 1 warning after some reports. The action taken mostly results in taking his goodwill away. Real bans happen with a real humand looking at the reports. This human then sees that you and your mates played 3 games with him and reported him in all 3 of them...seems fishy. The result will be that your and your friends reports will be worth much less in the future.
    Everything begins in darkness, and also ends.The heart is no different.
    Darkness sprouds within it- it growns, consumes it.
    Such is its nature.
    In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came.

    I doubt that.
    I was banned once before after i was reported by an entire team of people with the (AFK) (Intentional Feeding) option after talking trash back at them.

    The problem is actually that you think you were innocent, so the only possible thing that you can think of that could be right is that the system is broken/rigged.

    You can report those leavers.

    Most of the time, they do get banned (You recieve a notification on your menu that says "An Action has been taken against someone you have reported"

    I really wish they gave out favor or chests to you when you successfully reported someone.


    Why do you need 60 FPS? The human eye can only see 64 megabytes of RAM.
