when a permabanned player is given a 2nd chance and doesn't changed he creates a negative experience for alot of other people. Yeah its harsh that there are some people out there who would reform if they were given a second chance and not being given that chance. (the failure rate was not 100% and I do know someone who took the level 20 challenge, passed it, and got their account back) but riot had to face reality on this and can't roll the dice on a 3% chance of the player appealing to them being reformed
since you asked, in my personal experience the community has improved quite alot since the introduction of the tribunal and especially since the introduction of the honor system. A few days ago I had multiple games in a row where our team all failed horribly and we had to surrender at 20. Solo que. No one raged at anyone, no one got reported. This would be unheard of 2 years ago.
I literally just got out of two games where it was the absolute opposite. We were winning and people couldnt stop yelling and trolling each other.
I guess it's luck of the draw.
I also understand why the level 20 challenge didn't work. It should be more like "Make a new account, level it to 30, and in a year we will talk".
Honestly, a year ago I was a bit more immature than I am now, and it wasn't clear back then that simple smack talk would result in a ban. Since then, my vnew account has been totally clean (which is amazing because a lot of innocent people at least get some sort of warning through tribunal). Sometimes I get the urge to support riot by buying a skin, but then I remember that my account could get banned and the future and I pass. Their loss.
The level 20 challenge was a joke, and it totally screwed over people that actually wanted to reform, and gives the community a good feeling when people like me say they reformed. You guys just retort with "97% blah blah blah". I don't think the system is reliable, just, or even internally consistent with its purpose.
