With the release of On-Demand replay retrieval, Mid Wars and Rift Wars are now subject to RAP.
Please keep in mind that 100% forgiveness will be given to reckless, over-agressive, and unorthodox playstyles. RAP in these matches should be reserved for verbal abuse and obvious (and malicious) intentional feeding and griefing.

When I was younger I had an imaginary friend.
Now, with Facebook, I have hundreds of imaginary friends.
I'm pretty sure that courier spamming goes under item abuse

What is not a bannable offense is doing them in an inevitably lost game. (Whether the game is inevitably over or not is up to the discretion of the GM, and not the player. And in case of an appeal, of the SGM).
The ward spam rule got changed as we used to suspend for ward spamming even when the game was over in the past, seeing as you were manipulating your stats by doing so. But that rule got changed since we deemed it too harsh on players.
If the match is not over, yes.
By doing so, you're wasting gold that could be used to purchase items that could possibly help your team win the game, thus wasting team assets.
And by wasting wards, you're doing the same thing, plus you disallow your teammates to use these wards in a proper way.
If the match is clearly over, it's different of course, but in normal cases, it would warrant a suspension.
OP, thank you.

But its people like these that ruin games that can be won. A 1% chance at winning is sometimes enough to win. I personally find it stupid that you pardon people that abuse and make the chances that already are pretty bad even wrose. I mean, did you join a game expecting a clean and superior win? No, if they are better than you, you just have to keep on playing and try to win by beating them in a very close game. Also, why would you spam wards in the first place? If you really want to ruin a game, at least have manners and just go AFK. I would say that pardoning someone for simply going AFK when the game is partially over, but taking away your teams items...
I mean, I hope I have made a point here. Your philosophy is "If a guy is spreading nuclear waste then i can start spreading a deadly virus because why not?"

Can't wait for nothing to come from my MW reports as well!
Unless you have investigated a problem, you will be deprived of the right to speak on it. Isn't that too harsh? Not in the least.
When you have not probed into a problem, into the present facts and its past history, and know nothing of its essentials, whatever you say about it will undoubtedly be nonsense.
Talking nonsense solves no problems, as everyone knows, so why is it unjust to deprive you of the right to speak?
...If only there had been replays back then
If one side is about to take the throne and you've got some wards in your inventory, I don't see why you should be punished for using them and getting the stats for it when the outcome is set. I also don't see why you should be punished if you fountain dive to death while your mega-creeps are taking the throne.
But honestly, if your only chance of winning is for the enemy team to decide that they are going to all DC at the same time, then the game is over, 1% chance of it happening or no. I'm all for putting up a fight to try and turn things around but I'm afraid I've got to disagree with your idea that you should never stop trying. Also, Suwako isn't refering to people saying it's over, he's referring to situations where their actions either way can not reasonably alter the outcome of the match. (please don't ban me for putting words in your mouth).
And of course, a match that is 80-0 is a bit over the top won, but ive had many games in my life where i have won with the enemy team throwing because of the fact that they are confident in that they have won. And winning such a game as the loosing team is always the best feeling. The best turned game i can remember ended in my team having only 6 kills while the other team had 30 or something. There is always a way, UNLESS, it is a definitive loss. But even then, if your teammates want to keep trying, at least instead of using up their resources, go AFK in the fountain. As i have mentioned before, if you are going to go AFK, at least do it with manners.

I've yet to be able to retrieve a MW replay. So I came here to check if reports were indeed being checked.
If they are, it's just in time. Trolling has gone from something like 1 in 10 games to 1 in 4..
Can you put a note in the in-game News that MW reports are now being taken seriously? It seems to have got around that people can troll as much as they want.
