I’ll make this as quick. When someone is toxic (which can be avoided with a simple mute), why do they get a 7-day silence, then 7-day suspension, then 20-day suspension, then perma-ban? Why are these punishments so harsh, when you can simply just mute the person and never hear from them again.
The problem is, throwing games. I read that someone deranked an account from 3.5 to <500 sr without A SINGLE SUSPENSION. Not one suspension for ruining 3000 sr worth of games. This isn’t like someone being toxic, because you can’t simply just mute someone. You actually lose the game because you are fighting a 5v6.
Blizzard, get your priorities straight. Being toxic isn’t ok, but IT IS NOT A BANNABLE OFFENSE. You should not be banned for cursing or calling someone bad at the game. You shouldn’t even be suspended, the right punishment for toxicity is a permanent silence. However, throwers should be given a 7 day suspension, and if the throwing continues, then give them a perma ban. Something avoidable by 1 button should not be held above something that is unavoidable.
It’s simple. Blizzard, get your priorities straight.
