Just wanted to start off by saying that this thread is intended to merely make suggestions about the Tribunal, and, more specifically, suggestions about the rewards given out by Riot to us the players for judging cases correctly.
After doing my 10 cases today, it dawned on me, that this case work, if done properly is going to be a pretty hefty time sink. I started this morning with my cases, and each one takes at least 4-5 minutes low-ball(I want to say off the top of my head). This includes reading the entire chat log, checking scores, items, and then going through the persons other games, till I can basically tell that the person is deserving of punishment, or if they were just having a bad game, or if they were just responding to trolls and acting in kind. What ever the outcome might be, time is invested. Now, multiply the time it takes to complete a case by 10, and that's roughly the time it's taking me right now, when the case number gets even higher(30), the time invested will go up exponentially.
So, I thought to myself, a lot of people, who might be interested in this, probably won't be able to do their full work load every day, or, a lot of people will quickly lose interest, as the novelty of being a Tribunal member wears off. To stem the decay of tribunal members, and to keep people interested, I believe there should be other benefits of rewards.
Now, understand that if Riot decided before hand that no reward would be given out, (no IP), to players for judging cases, that some people, being the good troopers that they are, would still be doing the case work, and, I'm looking for reward suggestions that aren't tangible, that is, to say, they aren't spendable or aren't content related. It's my opinion, that if people would still do the work without any glimmer of reward for their work, hypothetically, then what would be a good token of appreciation for them?
please, do not make any suggestions about the IP given out, be it increased or changed in any way. Also, please do not suggest that we be given player skins, or RP.
Examples of suggestions that I am looking for:
- Unique icons for the forum Tribunal members, unlocked by cases solved.
- A case ticker under our name, stating the number of correct cases. This could be a sort of badge of honor, something like our matches won, or rating.
These two suggestions would only really apply to people who are active on the forums, so, unique and creative suggestions would be appreciated.
