EDIT: This is put on hold for a bit, because of some possible job opportunities, then today when i decided to get it underway my father was unjustly banned by the tribunal. However this situation may make me move forward with this. I'll try to keep you updated.
Hi I'm Typhon66! You may remember me from such posts such as http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=1590322 and http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=1590322.
Lately there have been many many MANY posts about the tribunal. People claiming to be unjustly banned, riot claiming that the system is fine. Even famous players, i am sure you all remember Grackis getting banned. He claims he did not rage for 8 months but was still banned. Riot claims he either "did, or he built a reputation as a rager so people reported him." In either case, who is right?
Riot claims that the system is fine, that they do checks, and that they have yet to come across someone who has been unjustly banned.
Many players claim that the system is broken, that it is abusable, and that the fact that it automatically suspends players makes the system flawed.
I have a friend who swears up and down that the tribunal unjustly banned him, i'll post a story about that in the next post for those who care to read it.
So, how can we decide who is right and who is wrong? Is riot right and are these people just ragers who can't get over their punishments? Or are there in fact people out there being unjustly banned when they really are trying and maybe are just bad at the game?
Well that's what we are going to find out. Using a concise methodical scientific method. We are going to prove, ONCE AND FOR ALL, if the tribunal runs perfectly, or if it unjustly punishes people who don't deserve it. So how are we going to do that?
First an explanation.
So, the next post i will post updates about the experiment and how it goes. I am considering streaming the experiment in the interest of the people, however I may not because some people would say that "riot is watching this post and will make sure my non-angry accounts don't get banned so they can keep up the charade that is the tribunal" or something to that effect. I may do both! We shall see.
The experiment will start Next Wednesday January 25, 2012.
Why next Wednesday?
1, it gives me enough time to prepare the accounts, get them 1350 IP, during this time the accounts will NOT behave outside of the "control" groups behavior. They will act as though they are the control.
2. On Tuesday i find out if i have a job or not. If i do, then i will have to do the experiment in the evenings after work, if not, then i can do it longer each day and get results quicker (Hopefully).
We will do this in 30 days, because i think that is a reasonable amount of time where someone can be given "chances" to see if they deserve to stay in this community.
In the event that, before the experiment is over either.
A) Someone discovers something with Evelynn causing a meta shift to the point of her being considered "viable" or even "overpowered"
B) The stealth remake comes out and Evelynn is remade
Then the experiment will continue but a different champion will be used, likely Hiemerdinger.
