League of Legends Players Rewarded For Being Nice

Riot's taken one measure after another to try and "clean up" the often-toxic League of Legends crowd. When all else fails, it seems, bribe 'em.

Summoners who are at least level five and had a clean record in 2014 -- defined as never having a chat restriction or being banned -- can now log in to claim their free gift. Even if you're like me and played only a couple of matches in 2014 -- which makes it hard for you to misbehave -- you'll receive the post-Christmas present: in my case, a skin for Jarvan IV.

I might argue that for it to really take hold, it needs to be implemented a little more regularly. Players who see this and think, "Gee, I wish I'd been nicer" will probably forget about it come the later part of the year when that noob on their team makes them unleash a string of obscenities. But in any case, it's nice to see Riot implementing some positive reinforcement to clean up their community.

I shared my gift... what did you get?

The community and "competitive" scene is getting more disgusting day by day in the last 1-2 year(s).
When they weren't so hyped, they gifted RP for xmas for every1, not some random skin that u prolly wont use even once.

Wood Ashe.
I've played some games yesterday ( haven't played for about 5 months ). The community is the same, maybe even worse.
So no, i don't think this will help, on the other hand it will drive those bad players to do even more bad things with this game because "why didn't i win this also ? i didn't done a single bad thing" ...
But, thanks Riot for the skin !
