But, it wasnt due to 'false reports'. It was due to toxic behavior coupled with having a lot of reports in the system. They didnt test those reports to see their validity (whether they were pardoned or not), as they admitted. So it was due to 'a lot of reports'.
They did not use the outcome of Tribunal cases to determine the validity of the reports, but that does not mean they did not determine the validity of the reports at all. Lyte has stated they used other measures to determine the validity of reports, aside from the Tribunal cases. Details are unknown at this point.
|So call a spade a spade. These people were suspended for being toxic. Which is the Tribunal's job and if it worked, they would have gotten punished anyway. So are you saying that the Tribunal is limited in its ability to punish toxic players? Are you saying that it would not have caught these extremely toxic with 0.1% without a doubt they are super toxic people?|
And no, the Tribunal indeed fails when it comes to certain offences. Issuing loads of false reports is one of them. Riot made the decision to combine that aspect of 'toxicity', with the in-game data that can be viewed in the Tribunal.
This is just a sub-group of offenders that was somewhat harder to detect for the Tribunal.
