Generally, I am pretty nice to people, but I always try my best to do well in games and don't like losing ranked games because of 1 idiot troll. Generally that troll feeds then trolls which enrages me and I talk some smack to them. This is what I imagine that I was reported by.
My question is, because I have no intention on halting this sort of behavior, which is not very severe nor common, what are my chances of being banned in the future?
Does the riot staff reviewing cases take into account the severity of harassment and correlate that directly to the severity of the punishment, or is it merely based upon the number of times you have been reviewed?
Also, how does it play out for someone who maybe gets ticked in 1/20 games and insults a troll?
Basically, I want a new skin, and am hesitant to buy it because I don't know just quite how carebear riot's rules regarding harassment and punishment are.
I am with you on this. I have only been playing the game for about 5-6 weeks. I am level 30 and have spent $190 already on my account and my friends. Within the first few days of me playing. I assisted in a kill with Cait and a sniper shot, just getting the player before they entered thier base. MY team mate raged and threatened to report me for a "KS" , he had 2 friends in that game with him and stated they would all report me and I would get banned.
Since then I have played over 300 games and I read the forums constantly. I have come to the conclusion that I will probably lose my cash and time invested in this account as so many people rage and report for any little thing. I see so many player begging to report someone for intentional feeding for just a few deaths, for calling someone a noob, or just because they got wrecked by someone else. And for leaving... I thought LeaverBuster was meant for that, so why report someone for leaving?
It seems to me, that with the current setup and system it is inevitable for even the nicest of players to eventually get sent to the tribunal. Mathmatically, the more games you play the more times some kid or butthurt inidividual is going to report you. And the more games you play the more times it will go to tribunal and somewhere in there those same type of people are going to spam punish and move on.
I hope it never happens to me. Or anyone else for that matter. I know I tribunal very cautiously because I actually care for my community, but we all know not eveyrone feels that way.
