This is largely true. We've found that the Tribunal is really good at weeding out players who consistently display toxic behavior.
But one part the system could do better is in displaying this toxic behavior more clearly to players who will say anything to make themselves look innocent.
It's no secret that after you've received MANY reports, in MANY games, from MANY people, the system will then go through your Reported Games and randomly select them for a Tribunal case.
In some cases these games can be slam dunks, in other cases they may not be as clear cut. But if you get a guilty judgement you shouldn't just assume you were banned for "two games". A player is never banned simply for “two games”
In this case?
Well, two games were not the reason behind getting a Tribunal Case in the first place. We know that players have bad games. We’ve actually built the Tribunal System with this idea in mind.
That’s not what happened here. In fact, since the previous 3 Day suspension the player has been reported in over 45 games.
Over 45 Games? That's toxic behavior that affects over 405 players in League of Legends.
Think about that. 1 player vs. 405 ruined experiences in League of Legends.
Some of the things that most likely resulted in crossing the threshold to generate a Tribunal Case?
Well, half way through the game selling all of your AP Items on a caster and buying AD Items just to spite your team mates isn’t a very nice thing to do.
Afking at the Fountain because your Surrender Vote failed is another pretty effective way to gain reports and lose friends too.
Running in the jungle and using your character's Ult on creeps and minions to purposely anger your teammates? Yeah, that will probably do it too.
It’s a shame that those games were not among the randomly selected to be shown here. Because then we wouldn't even have to be having this conversation.
You mentioned that you had learned your lesson from your previous 3 day ban, but I'm not sure I believe you. Obviously you've cut back on the toxic speech, which is great. But there's a lot of way you can be a jerk to your team mates. And if you're not ready to be a teamplayer and treat others with the respect they deserve then perhaps you can really use this 7 day suspension to reflect more on what else you can do.
Because right now, what you're doing isn't working.
Now, since you're here, is there anything you can do about this Reed Wise character? If there was a tribunal system for the forums, the evidence in this thread would get him instantly punished. In my opinion, there shouldn't be such a harsh double standard between what's allowed in game and on the forums.
This is the type of stuff that I see on GD that drives me bat-**** insane. We have you guys at Riot who uphold the idea of respect to ALL summoners; deserving or otherwise. Then we have people who will not so much as bat an eye when they tell others to DIAF. If you are going to hold such a high standard. this behavior shouldn't be tolerated; even towards toxic individuals.
