i remember back when i used to play wc3 dota you would expect a for there to be insults thrown. lots of people calling other people noob, telling them uninstall, pwned noob, gg noobs etc etc. People still played the game, it was heaps fun. You had too have thick skin to play wc3 dota and if you didnt you would either develop it or quit playing.
I played LoL for since it was released on and off till dota 2 came out. LoL started off a lot like wc3 dota in terms of community but slowly riot started implementing measures to prevent "bad behaviour" because there are people who dont handle being called noob very well. people started getting banned for saying things like "ggnoobs" after winning a match.... come on really? Then riot also turned off all chat by default to discourage people from communicating with the enemy team...
Dota 2 is a lot different from LoL. There is a report function but it seems no one cares. Dota 2 players seem not to care if some one calls them noob or anything. Ive played a game with a guy and were totally having a go at each other for reasons i do not remeber. I happened to be on the same team as the same guy the next game and we played like it never happened. not one single f*** was given. If this had happened in LoL it probably wouldnt of happened because we would have needed a good hour to cooldown and a hug/ big kiss from our mommy to feel better again and not be mad anymore.
Im not sure what is happening maybe it is the feminisation of gaming/ schools or the whole PC craze but it seems like everyone these days is a huge pussy and gets mad over small things. You can insult me however much you want and I will never get angry or upset. I am sure of who I am and I know my strengths/weaknesses.
If I make a game I will give people a mute function and a block function. If you dont like someone just block and/or mute them. end of story. I dont like the idea of banning someone from my game because they called someone else a noob. I think video games should carry on the same values which have made some countries great ie. freedom of speech.
Note: I have never been banned or received a warning from LoL so inb4 umad cos u got banned from LoL
