The reporting feature allows players to inform at the end of a match about the negative behaviour of other players. In the post game lobby screen, hovering the mouse over the name of a player displays several icons which represent ways of interacting with that player. One of those icons is a red exclamation mark. Clicking it opens the reporting form, where details about the negative behaviour of the player to be reported can be entered. Clicking the button Report after filling out the form submits the report to Riot.

Reporting Options

Negative Attitude

Griefing, giving up, putting other players down or being negative about the game.

Verbal Abuse

Including, but not limited to language that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, or otherwise objectionable.

Leaving the Game/AFK

This includes logging out or exiting the game before a match ends or stand idle for long periods of time or refuse to participate in the match at all.

Feeding is griefing, not just having a bad game.
