If a player gets suspended through the Tribunal system, it usually means that they have repeated bad behavior in recent weeks.

A suspension from Tribunal is the result of a progression of punishment levels.

Reminder: A case is one or more reported incidents bundled together. A case file is one or more cases bundled together. Just saying this to help prevent players mixing up the word "case" with "incident" in the language used.

☆ First guilty case = Email Warning, No Suspension

☆ Second guilty case within recent weeks = 1 or more days of suspension

☆ Third guilty case within recent weeks = 1 or more days of suspension + extra time suspended for repeat violation

☆ Fourth guilty case within recent weeks = 1 or more days of suspension + even more extra time suspended for repeat violation

And so on.

Riot staff in charge of audits may manually increase/decrease the punishments given.

This means that a player that gets suspended is not punished only for what you see in the most recent reform card but ALSO the fact that they have NOT reformed enough to stay out of Tribunal.

It also takes generally more reported incidents than what is shown on a reform card to even appear on Tribunal so the actual number of reported incidents for the punished violator may be much larger. Only the most recent incidents within X days are included in the reform card.

Permanent suspensions are manually administered by hand by Riot staff, who are alerted to a case file when it has had enough guilty cases within a certain period of time to flag it as a special priority for review.

☆ So if you think that a suspension is not warranted for what you see in a case, try to remember that if it got as bad as a suspension, the punished violator has been naughty in more, perhaps many more incidents than what is shown in the case. The suspension is NOT for a first time offense.

NOTE: This does not mean that you should Punish for a false report. It means vote Punish if you see a legitimate violation regardless of whether you believe that violation is bad enough for a suspension by itself because by itself the punishment will not be a suspension (first time offender = warning mail, not suspension).

☆ This also means that permanently suspended players (the worst of the worst) that say they don't deserve their suspensions more often than not are either lying or fail to understand what it actually means to act civil in a public setting in accordance with the Summoner's Code.
(Special exception being accounts placed on hold by the monetary transaction fraud defense system, which auto-permabans for 2100-type sentences - contact Riot Support if this happens to you - often the result of a problem with a credit card transfer)

☆ Punishment levels reduce themselves automatically if the player plays long enough without getting punished by Tribunal. This means that REAL PROOF OF ATTEMPT TO REFORM is when the player gets his/her punishment level down from the previous punishment. (Ex. 1-day suspension reduced to email warning/no suspension)

If you have nothing better to do than paraphrase what's already in the sticky, you could at least do so competently enough to get the information right.

Permanent suspensions are not manually administered. They do some random audits, but otherwise these are automated just like any other Tribunal ban.

The Tribunal automatically assigns some low-level penalties to players, such as e-mail warnings. More severe cases, however, are reviewed and assigned punishments manually by Player Support.
I'm more inclined to believe Lyte then you

Yeah, various wordings have made it a bit confusing, but the conclusion seems to be that Riot reviews all permabans, and pardons and punishments up through 2-week timebans are subject to random audits.

Bumping to remind players what it means to be suspended.

A reminder every now and then never hurts.

When players ask why they got suspended for just a couple of games, this thread is a good place to direct them to, as well as anyone else making assumptions before knowing the facts.

A player gets permabanned, shows one of his/her less severe reform card links, and tries to get sympathy/attention from others by toting the reform card as if it were the sole reason for the permaban.

It's probably going to be an all too common story. Less common if enough players understand that a permanent suspension for bad behavior requires a huge amount of toxic behavior beyond what is shown in one reform card.

IMO it could be that young people too often rush ahead into what they read without trying to get a full picture of the circumstances when they side with a permabanned misbehaver. Or the result of multiple forum smurfs made by the permabanned players. Something to think about.

I urge all players that get warnings to behave nicely to NOT wait until the last moment to start behaving better because this only shows that you disregard the community until you feel personally threatened in some way (by permanent suspension). That's not really reform, and makes one wonder whether you will commit bad behavior again after your punishment level recedes to a level comfortable enough for you to start acting badly again.
