I personally believe that the introduction of power to the community [aka: the Tribunal] may have been what invoked this type of behavior from the player base to begin with. I believe it's their way of saying, "if you try to judge or control us, then we'll make gaming in League of Legends a living nightmare for all players unfortunate enough to be queued in with us". I also feel that players that all too easily fall back to the report and Tribunal are the ones adding flame to the fire, that is, animating these types of players to "legally" abuse the Tribunal.
Zeus, i totally agree with you. From your posts that i have read, i do not see why people fall in line to down vote you. What you just said makes a lot of sense.
Edit: The tribunal is like a double edged sword. On one side, I've thought, well this guy really deserves to have his actions looked at. He trolled the entire game, he fed, he left the game or afk'd for rage costing us the game. On the other side, when the thought of the tribunal's edge falling on me because of some guy running his mouth and I snap on him and call him a " Trolling f****t " makes me uneasy. Or, when stated above, both teams are trolling each other, one wont win, one wont surrender, and the game has been going for 80 minutes, the " fear? " of the tribunal/community's wrath falling on me cause I can't take it anymore and leave. Maybe if the reported cases was a video of the game that the community could watch from any point of view of the reported game was how it worked, I would feel alot better about the tribunal, but as it is right now, i just don't see it being......... a fix? helpful?
