You do not get banned for using clarity. You get banned for being a dick and forcing that SS onto your team, while your whole team says "NO" to it.

If you play Teemo every game and your team says "Pls don't play teemo" and you do it over and over again, you can get banned.

If you do it once in a while it is not a problem.

The difference is that you are intetionally ruining your teams mood and the game for them while trying to be unproductive and uncooperative. If you take clarity for some kind of strategy and explain it, some players are ok with it and then you can take it without problems. Often it is actually enough if only one other person in your team is ok with it. But playing with clarity in the top lane, maybe even on shyvana or Lee, is trolling.

I could pick teleport every game and will get banned for it ...
IF is use it as a jungler and always telport into my own base to shop faster.

That's not fair though. When it comes to certain champions, NOBODY WANTS YOU PICKING THEM.


Might as well delete Teemo from the game, and the other 50 unviable champions. Because no one wants you picking them, ever. This is how the game is at the moment.

Tribunal is a joke if they actually banned him for using clarity. This is basically endorsing a mob mentality if 4 other players can dictate what you can and can not do without the threat of punishment. I mean a lot of posts I read in the first 5 pages make me think:

Well if 4 of us are mad, it means the odd one out is wrong and should be punished

It's interesting that you received a ticket from someone who signs their message with "Toodles for now!"

Especially since she hasn't worked the PB Queues in almost two years. So I did some digging, and I did indeed find the message you are referring to.

Suspiciously it lacked any mention of Clarity. And even more odd, it was sent to you on October 19th, 2012.

GREAT SCOTT! Someone call the Doctor, I think you're caught in a timewarp!


Now, I guess you could accuse me of going back in time to edit the post while it was being written but unfortunately my Delorean is in the shop.

For transparency here is the actual ticket:
--------------

Greetings Summoner,

I went ahead and reviewed your Tribunal case. After the review, I believe the Tribunal decision was justified and I stand by the Community’s decision. Furthermore, throughout your gaming histories, you continuously displayed heavy negativity toward other players. A negative attitude can really drag down an entire game. It's super important to try staying positive and work with your team as a unit.

As a reminder, you are responsible for your action and account regardless what other do or say. There will be times when others try to get a rise out of you. I play League of Legends too. I get it. I know it's hard not to just lose it, especially when they start insulting you first. It doesn't matter how others act, what matters is how you do. If you see someone violate the Summoner's Code then you can report them at the end of the match. That way the only ones that have to worry about getting banned are them.

Keep in mind, when you're in game with someone who is toxic, they're most likely toxic in other games too. That means they're getting reported and will more than likely end up in the Tribunal themselves. Fueling the fire and biting back at someone who is being a troll or a jerk just means you're going to receive your own reports. In the end, it's best to mute. If you don't know what someone is saying, then you can't get mad about it.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have further questions or concerns. Best of luck to you in the future, fellow Summoner.

Toodles for now!

Aren't they ruining your mood by not allowing you to play who you want to play? I don't understand why the rest of the team has to dictate who you pick and what summoners you take.
