1) Who cares if you were reported. Being "reported" for something is different than being gulity. (duh) What could they have reported you for anyways? There are only a limited number of categories. Unskilled player? Those dont go into tribunal anyways....
2) If you did happen to end up on the tribunal for 1 game (this is unlikely), I think most people would pardon as you didnt break any rules?
3) If people did spam punish, it makes zero difference. Riot staff reviews tribunal cases and are the ones who input judgements. The tribunal judgement is not necessarily the one that riot staff would conclude.
4) Riot has stated people who continually vote incorrectly will eventually have their voter rating drastically decreased(meaning their vote makes no difference) as well as their case loads per day decreased(down to 2 cases per day).
1.) What if he had an argument and lost his temper, causing him to curse and down-talk? Standard arguing, tbh... And the majority looks at his case and pin "verbal harassment" on him? The Tribunal is most likely automated. What does this mean? It means that Riot probably didn't look at the case themselves before issuing a temporary suspension. Which means the defending player's deprived of his favorite game simply because he reacted naturally like human beings do.
2.) If players have been pointing out that they've been seeing cases with only 1 report in it [for verbal harassment in some of them, too -_-], then to me it seems possible [and likely] that people may make it to the Tribunal based on even one single solid report, from 1-4 players. The verbal Harassment rule is far too easy to break. If ALL players are held accountable for this, then this means bans are being handed out like free candy because it's inevitably going to happen. Not everybody's the same. Not everyone has the same capacity or level of "patience".
3.) If people spam punish, and Riot doesn't check up on it [all hundreds, or even thousands of cases that're generated daily], then who's stopping the Tribunal from automatically banning the players [esp. those accused of verbal harassment]?
4.) I happen to think that they go with the majority vote, and tag the minority as "wrong". If this process applies, then insta-punishers can essentially get away with murder [figuratively speaking, ofc...].
Conclusion: If the things I've pointed out are true, then reported players are in for quite a ban-ride!
