Most of the toxicity that plagues any League of Legends game session stems from chat interactions. However, communication is the most potent tool in any multiplayer game, and all chat commands League of Legends currently has are a way to use said communication most effectively.
Is There a Chat in League of Legends?
As League of Legends currently lacks an in-game voice chat, aside from the one used with premade teams, the only other option for communicating is the written in-game chat. And as far as we can see, Riot Games will never add a voice chat to the game, in fear of the toxicity that will spew forth.
Using said chat is as easy as pressing ENTER which opens the chat window, however for more mundane and quick communication we suggest you master the usage of the ping system, as the chat console is best kept muted.
On the other hand, for coordinating with your team, on the off-chance you get the ones that can make and keep to an actual plan in the game, using the chat option to win the current game session is your best bet. Of course, to do that, and some other cool stuff you should know the chat commands in League of Legends.
How to see the Chat Commands in LoL While In-game?
Chat commands in League of Legends range from the important ones, such as replying to a friend while in-game, to making your champion taunt the enemy. The latter one is, of course, far more important due to its use in psychological warfare.
To see a list of all chat commands while in-game, type in /help or /? or /allcommands or /allcmds and the chat window will show all the commands and provide descriptions.
What are All the Chat Commands in League of Legends?
While we are sure you know the most often used chat command in the game, the one for surrendering games, there is more to the League of Legends chat system than just that:
Will mute all text from a player for the duration of your current game session.
|Will mute all pings from a player for the duration of your current game session.
|Will mute all text and pings from all players for the duration of your current game session.
|Will mute a player during this game session and all subsequent game sessions.
|/d or /dance
Will make your champion show off his or her dance moves!
|/j or /joke
|Will cause your champion to make a joke.
|/t or /taunt
|Will cause your champion to verbally taunt the enemy, complete with an aggressive pose!
|/r or /reply
|Will allow you to reply to a private message in game. This command will reply to the last person who messaged you and automatically add their Summoner Name to the command when typed in to send messages back
|/w or /whisper "Summoner name"
|Will allow you to start a conversation with a friend that is online. If you're the friend in question, and wish to start a conversation with a friend who is in-game, using the Client chat from the buddy list will work just fine.
|Will mute all players during the current game session
|Will mute all enemy players during the current game session!
|/note or /n
|will add your notations to a text file called "MyNotes.txt.
|Will toggle whether or not the chat filter is on in-game.
|/surrender or /ff or /concede or /forfeit
Will call or cast a surrender vote for the active session
While some of these options, such as the champion dance sequence or taunting have a hotkey, those are, by default, placed in risky positions, and should you not use them properly, you might end up placing a ward when you don't mean to.
And, in the case of muting everyone in the game, the chat command is far superior to doing it manually via the TAB options menu.
