I actually appreciate this whole work you put into your job on your free day, Lyte, and you're one of my fafvorite Rioters now for the amount of work and dedication you put into this whole process, Kudos to that.

That said, I WOULD like to know how my report looks, but I totally understand that you cannot tell everyone and that this thread is consuming much of your time already to just keep up xD

I like how he is ignoring the people that give logical reasons why the actions taken were impatient, and only responding to people that are praising him.
Hey Lyte,

I understand why I was punished, but why was there such impatience in this process? Why did you assume that all of these players wouldn't respond to a simple warning? Why couldn't you issue a warning and then take action on players that continued to abuse? I am aware of my bad actions and would have responded properly to a tap on the shoulder rather than a slap to the face. I think a lot of people would agree with me on this


Just because we punished the worst 0.2% doesn't mean we didn't just issue warnings to others. For some, we just reset their report weights to 0 as well.

Actually there is a lot of truth in what your saying. Lyte was impatient to ban/drive away people she considers toxic. Its an obvious admission the tribunal is not working or judging the way they want it to.


Or that they hadn't implemented systems to deal with people abusing the Tribunal in this particular way to abuse other players. They've never pretended that the Tribunal is capable of dealing with all kinds of abusive behaviour and they've implemented new technology to sweep for this outside the Tribunal.

We got the exact same complaints that 'no one ever was punished for this before' or 'I didn't know that trying to get innocent people banned because I was mad was bannable' when the Tribunal first got implemented and the huge first wave got washed out. The only reason this seems like a big deal is because this is the accumulated waste of a year getting swept away all at once and even then it is only those who were recently abusive.

I'm curious, Lyte. I feel I am reported extremely often, despite trying to keep a level head with others, and trying to do my best overall. Whether a poor game or not, I feel like I'm reported often, so it would appease me greatly if you could sort of tell me where I stand in this regard.

Thanks!

None of that actually justifies being an ass though.

Being an ass in game has always been bad though.


Reporting behavior I find toxic is being an ass? I'll bite that I went over the line on my 3 day suspension I don't dispute it. One of the games I just left my carry to die because I was mad at my jungle - some of the behavior I find toxic. I get that. But then I get this 7 day garbage?

But when you lose your lane by 100 CS - your toxic. Maybe not in normals but in ranked that is toxic. You've ruined the game for the other 4 players on your team. And will the baddie apologize? Oh god no - never never never never. Dying 4-5 times in lane and not buying wards? Yup that's intentional feeding. Sure its not running into the tower and dying but refusal to protect yourself IS intentional and it leads to feeding.

And once again... internet. Game. Internet. Game. Any expectation of civility is dumb.

I wish that there weren't so many trolls in the community. Beyond getting banned for reporting, you have the people on where who have the one sentence posts to troll other people within this forum. Then you have the people who are talking who aren't affected, then you have the people who aren't affected who are asking for their accounts to be looked over even though they are unaffected. And then you have the affected that are being ignored, who can't even make another thread because [i just tried this] when they do its scrolled 5 pages away from how volatile and troll like this community is even at this time of night.

Thusly people who have a good reason to report are getting shut down and though I'd like this account to be reviewed, screw it, this is exactly why i made a second account at level 30 on the same server. This will only be read to be red marked an trolled but those who fall in the category above should feel ashamed though i doubt you will never mind get punished for doing so.

This though, is just too much. Suspended for a rule you never knew existed = priceless.

Being an ass has always been suspendable though, and was a criteria for these bans.

Distorting the issue just makes you look silly. If you're going to complain, at least complain about what actually happened.
