Why is backdooring reportable? I thought it was a viable tactic it is listed under other. Also how do i report someone for abusing kick vote, there doesn't seem to be a category for it. There are also other odd reportable things, like reporting someone for rage quitting, and funniest of all PLAYING POORLY? I geuss me and and every other player in the 1500 range should be banned...
You should click on those buttons and see what happens.
Also, 9 man vote kicks are something S2 aren't gonna interfere with, if all 9 players don't want you in their game then they have the right to remove you.
Open up RAP and try to report someone for backdooring, your question will be answered.

its there because they dont want the forums spammed with 'plz put backdooring in RAP' and have mods answer questions here. Its easier to do it in the RAP system itself.
I agree with Dushan, and i think you are missing the point. BACKDOORING IS LEGAL IS IT NOT?
Oh lol sorry my bad
To those of you who use the argument that if 9 people vote yes, there is no way the votekick is undeserved:
- Just because 9 people voted yes, doesn't mean that they actually thought the guy deserved a kick, most people just vote yes for the sake of it OR do it for their own interests (kick enemy = 4v5)
- Even if all 9 people actually made an unbiased and objective judgement of the player being voted for kicking, and they all genuinely believe he deserves a kick, doesn't mean that those 9 people are right. Most people in hon are pretty ignorant and i would not trust their judgement with anything.
So with that said, I'm sure there are kickvotes that are deserved, but there are also plenty that aren't. I feel like you guys are aware of this, and the decision was made to not include it in RAP because you found it too hard to actually decide what deserves a kick and what doesn't. Which is a cop-out, in my opinion. Would like to see this decision reversed, all kinds of griefing should be punishable in this game.
I think it is safe to say that 90 % of the votekicks with 9/10 players kicking 1 is kick for the wrong reasons.
And that 90 % of the times a votekick gets declined by the other team because it is better not to kick him at that point( free gold cause u can kill him each minute or some1 raged quit 1 hour into the game and not comming back for sure well better push now before they get his items that might win the game. But kicking him to let them get the items faster? Who would help the other team =/)
Still it might only happen in 2 or 3 % off the games but still the votekick system is just realy wrong and should be changed/deleted...
But that's rather rare, while the obvious trolls who play poor on purpose NEVER get kicked. Atleast 1!! of the enemy team is a douche and failing the vote.
Edit: from time to time, I queue with a friend and we go Scout+nh and codex and trash the 1400-1500 bracket. You won't believe me how many votekicks were targeted at us...and SUPRISE they couldn't do so since we were 2 mates.

Backdooring is viable strategy and it is not reportable.

@dushan: If you have 3 bad players on your team that really want to concede the game then them kicking you was most likely doing you a favor as it saved you time. Being votekicked does not give you a leaver it gives you a loss and you will receive whatever +- mmr comes from the outcome of the game. All they did by kicking you was make it so you did not have to put up with them for a longer period of time and deal with the frustration of fighting a losing battle.
As for people getting kicked right near the end of the game before your team wins, yes it does stink that you get a loss but that is the only stat negatively effected and I highly doubt people care that you have an extra loss on your record if every other stat is still good.
