You win Riot. I tried to reform, but clearly all you want is to keep punishing me.

I give up. I tried, I really did. You say the tribunal is about reform, but it clearly isn't. It's about punishing people, nothing more.

You see, I used to be pretty bad. I use to cuss people out, rage hard during games, trash talk my opponents, the list goes on. Just take a look at the first reform card I got:

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/tribunal/en/case/5743778/

Pretty bad right? I remember that suspension as it came right before the honor initiative went live. Looking at the reform card, it's pretty plain to see that I deserved it, and it was made pretty clear to me that I needed to change. Five games to see, and I was terrible in all of them.

So guess what I did? I changed. Should be easy right? Some 99.9999% of offenders never end up back in the tribunal right? So I stopped the raging, I stopped the cussing, and I tried my best to be a good teammate. I remember racking up tons of teamwork honor game after game. I deluded myself to the point where I thought I might even be close to getting one of those elusive ribbons. Then, out of the blue, I got suspended again. This reform card? It was a little different:

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/tribun.../5857050/#nogo

Two games. In both games, all I did was talk back to people who trash talked me for playing poorly by telling them I would report them. Should I have done that? Probably not. But hey, I was only retaliating to people who were being toxic in the first place. Compare that to my first reform card and it's night and day. Two games, and the worst word I used was "report."

I was completely flabbergasted. I just didn't understand how I could be suspended for talking trash to trash talkers. I still don't understand that suspension. On I went though, and after a week I was back at it. Fast forward a month and today I got suspended again. This reform card? Also a little suspect:

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/tribun.../6094665/#nogo

Three games. In one of them, I asked my team to surrender in a total stompfest. That's about it. In another game I made a quip to a guy who threw a tantrum in champion select because I was a "first time Viktor." And in the third game I somewhat lost my cool against a guy who trolled me two games in a row. I truly, genuinely do not understand how this results in a suspension.

Just look at my first reform card. Look at how bad I was. I was the guy starting ****, I was making things toxic. Now my biggest crime is just responding to an already toxic environment.

You see, the tribunal just doesn't give a damn about reform. If you get banned once, you are started down a slippery slope that is near impossible to recover from. Either you physically remove your enter key from your keyboard, or you will be suspended again. Yes, I deserved my first couple of bans. I'm a changed player now though, but the tribunal doesn't care. Because I have been banned in the past, even the slightest slip-up sends me right back into the tribunal where vindictive voters fulfill their revenge fantasies by imposing upon me the face of every genuine troll they've ever played with.

Nobody cares if you've gotten better. They just care if you can be punished.

saying "bg" = 1 week ban? I guess we should start suspending people who don't say "gg" now too.

"Enjoy your ban *******"

A direct quote from OP in second reform card, about which he was "flabberghasted."

Look, had you not said anything, or even just "I'm going to report you," like you said you did in the post (which isn't true when you actually read the reform card), you probably wouldn't have been banned.

But you were snippy about it, and were clearly intending to be a dick to the people you were talking to...

Not that they didn't warrant it either, but if you're truly trying to reform, I suggest you ignore the trolls all together and don't say anything that isn't constructive to winning your team the game.

that, combined with "im done, not playing with manamune kass" = 1 week ban

and you have been given many chances to reform, and you didn't.

Yes, it sure is a crime to dislike playing with trolls.
