That's what I think. If you're going to report someone and they're risking their accounts, it should at least be required to write a reason of what rules they broke and how. I get all of the arguments though, but why should I or anyone be forced into the tribunal because of false reports? Everyone has a bad day, maybe I rage one game and unfortunately I get reported. Yes one report doesn't get you in the tribunal, but it is there, so when more reports start coming, it will be used against you, even if it's the only instance out of 4 cases, since as the other tribunalers state, if they 4 perfect games and 1, just one rule broken in 1 game they will vote punish. So say I get reported for raging. Then I decide to try new items on champs and get reported for breaking the meta, not bannable but will be used to build a case, someone random bans me for nothing, a team mate bans me because he feels my losing the lane cost them the game. Eventually I'll be brought into the tribunal and then my one and only game a raging, which could have happened so many months ago, will be a case against me along with the false reports, and Ill get punishment verdict.
Sure if that is my only instances I shouldn't get into the tribunal again. But everyone has bad games, other than that some people will ban if they feel I do something out of the ordinary and lose. But It can happen, and I see no good reason why someone should be banned for something that happened months ago with no constant pattern of toxic behavior. I get punishing when 2 or 3 of the cases are toxic, but 1? 1? that probably never would have been there had not false reported sky rocketed the guy into the tribunal.
More than one reported is needed to get into the tribunal, in fact a large percent of your games have to be reported, well so I've heard, I and believe the reason for this is because people do make mistakes and their intent is that only the most toxic players are banned. But just one little rule broken out of 5 or 6 cases doesn't make sense to me, especially if they wouldn't have been there in the first place...
