Why is the punishment

for telling people "they should go kill themselves" (which I am told was, among other things a justifying reason for the permanent suspension from a particular ex-professional league player) is the same as telling someone "they are terrible" in a ranked game. Yeah I'm venting because I got perma-banned, just sad Riot treats the tribunal like a 3 strikes system rather than sentencing relative to the offense.

I'm no where near the vitriol other players. Most common complaint is I type a lot. Probably true and certainly can be annoying, but there is a mute option.

Accumulated a string of 5 or so of similar bans since tribunal was released

If only you could have had some sort of warning this could happen. Hmmm....

I would report you just for that shyvana build.

All that aside it was more than just the last game, hell the shyvana game you spent most of it insulting players and antagonizing people.

Are not the same thing in my opinion. Some People do take that as a serious offence.

just because someone got banned for saying something completely horrible doesn't mean anything less is immune

edit: also three strikes isn't the same thing. You didn't insult three people to get banned, you insulted/were toxic in multiple games multiples times to the end result of you getting banned. You were formally punished three times yes, but you did a lot more than three things to go this far in the tribunal.

The point of the tribunal is to punish/inform people that are doing something wrong. If you are annoying the hell out of people with your insults/remarks why is it their job to mute you? Why don't you just be quiet, haven't you learned yet?

If they *must* mute you in a cooperative game where communication is very important, you are doing something very wrong. Also, this still stacks with other things you did wrong, again, on multiple occasions multiple times.

Further, the Riot employee who decided the ban was final looked at more than these tribunal games.
