Just how toxic is League of Legends' community? According to Riot Games, it may not be as bad as it once was.

The team posted a letter praising "positive behavior" in the community, saying that 95% of players have never received punishment. Furthermore, only 1% of the crowd have caused issues that resulted in lengthy bans or chat restrictions. Riot says that it is trying out new ideas to further combat bad behavior: "We've recently been focused on addressing extreme cases of verbal toxicity, and will soon be testing additional systems that address gameplay toxicity like leavers, AFKs, and intentional feeders."

To players who haven't received any punishments in the 2014 season, Riot will be granting four-win IP boosts next week.
