Just to clarify all the stuff Lyte was talking about today, Riot doesn't care how many times you report people as long they are accurate. If they're inaccurate then you're just abusing it.

Also the reason why a lot of people were banned because they would use that as a threat on top of the inaccurate reporting, EX "If you don't do X I'll report you."

Also lyte I know you said you can't get to everybody on the account checks but I'd like to see if I'm on the good side because I rage in most of my games and I want to see if that got me into the tribunal. Thank you for responding to this if you got the chance to.

that's right boys and girls, use the "unskilled player" report category when someone is intentionally feeding

Just saying "reported" by itself isn't that bad; however, it's not great either. I'd encourage you to just report and let the Tribunal take care of the rest.

If you don't get banned for a long stretch of time and play lots of games in a positive manner, your ban severity goes down. I can't say the exact numbers at this time, but keep it up if you've been clear for 2 months already!

Is there anyway I can find out how often I am reported?

I support you guys behind this 100%.
I wondered about that whether my one report every 5 games or so actually made a difference with these kind of reporters I knew existed.
Riot, you guys are awesome.

The magic word there is "toxic"
They think banning people who are undeserving with no warning is justice.
After a week of ban watch people who will no longer use the report feature.
Enjoy the game full of trolls.
I guess they never thought of that.

I don't mean to drag this out as I can go in much detail about what is wrong with what has just happened, and I'm not expecting a response because I certainly know RIOT employees do not care and are fed up with people spamming but my question is:

In most of your reasoning you tend to say "these people tend to be toxic players and lead to other people having less enjoyable games and are better banned, but the problem here is,(and its pretty obvious) why are you banning them for making false reports (how to guarantee these, you cant. You would have to follow each person and a human cannot do this for a game that millions of people play)...they made false reports, but that doesn't mean that they ARE toxic players...they might tend to be, but if they TEND to be, then please have them banned for that, don't make the assumption and throw that in this argument..its very unprofessional and it leads people to begin leaving your game. Its like saying...You live in a community with terrible people and with people who have a bad history, you are also an African american, I will now punish you for what you seem to be

TLDR: Bans are clearly unjust, I'm not looking to start up a riot or anything(no pun intended), but rather trying to just open peoples' eyes to how ridiculous of actions are being made, and being accepted as okay.

STILL NOTHING LYTE..CAHMON, IM WAITING..AND SO ARE THE THOUSANDS OF 18+ PEOPLE THAT HAVE A MORE THAN HALF A BRAIN

I think all these posts are great, and just further help people reform since they sorta bring a scare to the community. I myself am scared because I have actually reported everyone in the game due to stress at a few times. Hopefully it wasn't too much, but if you want to look into my case, then thank you
