Also the ambassador has several incorrect statements.
For the record, we do work for Riot as a part of the Player Support and Community departments.
Also, the tribunal system is regularly audited by a special team within Riot.
What does the audit include? Judgments made by the player community are compared to judgments made by Rioters. What do we find? The player community is actually more likely to pardon offenses that would otherwise have been punished by a member of Riot.
So far, our audits have not revealed players who were unjustly suspended by the system. And in fact, every time a player comes to these boards complaining their suspension was unfair it requires little work to look up their account and see the long list of Summoner's Code violations they've participated in.
This isn't to say the Tribunal is a done deal. There are a lot of improvements we feel we can make, however; overall we're very satisfied with the community moderated system we've developed.
