I'll be honest, I like that you can gain IP by helping decide whether or not a player was in the wrong or the right.
So i decided to give it a shot about a month ago when i finally hit level 20. I read a post that a Red had made in a topic regarding IP not being awarded like usual, to which he said the issue is known and they are fixing it and IP gain will return to normal.
Now i know the IP gain from The Tribunal is a little amount, i think it's 5 IP per convicted case, if you chose part of the majority vote.
My main question for any Red is: When it is fixed, do we get all the backlogged IP all at once or will it be in a basic trust fund system as to not flood people with IP? I.E. Say you have 10,000 IP in backlog, they dole out the normal IP you would gain plus +200 of the backlogged IP that you earned but were not yet given due to the bug/error.
As for a side note, how many times have you "Pardoned" a case? I have done it only once so far, but i have seen cases where a guy shouldn't have been reported but in say, Game 3, he actually lets his colors show. :/
