The official League of Legends public chat rooms have been disabled until further notice by Riot, as they work to address a lack of control that has seen them become “rife with RP sellers, scammers and Elo-boost spam”.

“Unfortunately, private chat rooms and even the awesome community hubs like Dominate Dominion and Summoner School lack moderation tools beyond the ignore button. While the experience in private chat rooms is better than the public versions, we still want to provide tools to address unwelcome drop-ins and toxic behavior.”

Riot don’t have an immediate timeframe in mind, but are looking for feedback on how to improve their public chat spaces and their chat system overall.

“As an immediate action we’re going to disable the public chat rooms until they’re useful and accessible. In their current shape they just don’t work and can actively create negative experiences for many players (especially new players).”

Head over to this thread if you have some thoughts on that matter. And hey, did you know League of Legends Oceanic play is quota-free to iiNet Group users?
