I don’t think I’ve ever found as generally ANGRY community as the MOBA one, especially LoL, so I have to wonder why, when so many people get constantly upset by this game, that they don’t go play something else?

Often the anger people feel isn't towards the game directly but rather more obscure, less tangible aspects of it. Like a certain player you hope you never have to play with again, or a OP champion that will be getting eventually nerfed. The game itself is fun.

The community isn't even that bad its just fun to meme about

I found Counter Strike way more toxic back in the day, I don't play that game anymore and haven't in over a decade but I could imagine its still pretty awful, PvPing in MMOs was generally more toxic than my LoL experience has been as well
I actually prefer the purple stuff

Sunk cost fallacy.

also sometimes you just want to do a 30 minute distraction and walk away with -something-, even if it's not a win.

Granted, riot removed the BE incentive forever ago but still.

The majority of the playerbase in LoL is in denial - they think they're having fun, but they're not. They're just going through the motions, or they're trying to subjugate someone under their (e-)foot and think they'll find something worthwhile that way... But they won't and they don't. They keep lying to themselves, and, when something inevitably goes wrong and someone they're connected to loses (which happens in games), then they flip out at the tiniest thing.

Wishing things were different is a great way to torture yourself.

Do not give the kodesh to kelevim nor throw your pearls before chazirim, lest they will trample them with their feet and turn around and tear you into pieces.

Why do drunks keep getting wasted by alcohol when they know they're financially and emotionally destroying themselves and their families?

The answer is Teemo.
