Why do people rulelawyer this so badly? I mean, I don't know a single person who plays this game even the least bit competitively who hasn't raged a couple times. I myself have fed maybe 2 games and left maybe 3 or 4 because of raging, a few more just because of emergencies etc. and maybe more from when i was low level and simple don't remember. That said, I have played over 800 normal games, so when you look at it, I have a fairly good record percentile wise. You have to understand it is a videogame so that A: some people are not good at it, and B: using crime as a comparison is really just uncalled for.
I can't see the summoner's level. I can't see the number of games they've played. I can't see what time or after what events they said what. I can't see if the team was premade. I can't see if they were duo queued. There is SO little information to make an informed decision, and that is my argument. I understand that that is how it works NOW, but I am trying to propose something that will help with it.
Yes, I understand that they broke the summoner's code and press punish, but there is too much grey in a case that 4 games are obvious violations and 3 or 4 are not legit to make that decision and be sure of what Riot would do. I certainly wouldn't want to be permanently banned because I fed/afked in a few games that I raged in, and the community apparently has this stance that by pressing punish you are immediately sending the person to the chair, when in reality Riot's reaction to most cases will be warning or single digit day bans.
I want the tribunal to work as intended, and to do that this is my proposed change, take it or leave it. I am not talking about the multiple games scenario, and this issue has obviously caused people to move to both sides of the argument before. I am simply stating that with a few changes, and a single game scenario, Judges will be able to make better informed, more accurate decisions instead of broad sweeping decisions that may or may not swing the correct way.
For example, take all games that are majority ruled by judges to be pardoned out of the rotation entirely, and only send those where the punish rule is used to the riot employees NOT to judge them for themselves as the community has already done that, but instead decide the PUNISHMENT as the system is stated to do.
I don't know if it is possible in a community as biased in this, and perhaps that is why the current system is in place. I was simply making a suggestion and am tired of hearing the arguments that have been on the table since day 1 of beta of it.
