If this really happened, then it only proves my theory about how Riot's automating everything so that they have seldom cases to ever review. Just check majority votes, and award punishments. So if everybody's voting to "punish", and the Tribunal's automated, then everybody's eventually going to get temp-banned at some point or another...

show us the screencap of your account being banned again, as in the message that pops up whenever you try to log in.

and the e-mails you got, both the new one and old one.

I call BS on this because I have reported a friend's account to test the Tribunal. I have yet to get his smurf banned, and we play customs in a group of 10, so he should also get 9 reports, plus the ones he gets when it's just me and him in a duo queue.

Then again, Riot did say that punishments arrive faster to those who were already severly punished (1 week is too much lol. That's what GRACKIS got when he got banned), so maybe my experiment didn't work because my friend has yet to get banned by Riot.

I'm curious to examine this in greater detail.

Lately, the cases I've been reviewing have had merely a handful of games, or numbers in the lower tens.

In every case, the summoners with the few games reported have all been played in June, whereas the summoners with >10 games reported against them, at least one has been played in April and May.

I suspect what's happening is the affected summoners have so many games reported against them, but the Tribunal can handle only a max of 12 games per summoner case. Summoners are being banned for poor behaviour for games in April and May, but still have a backlog of games played in those months that have not yet been reviewed, which are appearing in their history as their reports for June come out.

Now some summoners may not think like I do; I ignore games played in April and May as they are too long gone. But others may treat them as if they were played yesterday, and summoners may be getting banned a second time as a result of poor behaviour back a month or two ago.

It's just a theory though, and I have no evidence to back it up, but I highly doubt that Tribunal judges that are simply auto-punishing every case, every 60 seconds are resulting in innocent summoners being banned. That goes against what the system was designed for. On the other hand, I can't explain why games played in April or May would have any bearing now in the month of June, either.

Certain in-Game activity on your account has been found to be in repeat violation of the Summoner’s Code by the Tribunal at the expense of a positive gameplay environment for many of our other Summoners.

As such, your account will be temporarily suspended until 2011-06-28 16:00:58.

Read my thread, that's how I do the Tribunal.

BTW, Riot does NOT review bans, they say they do but they do NOT, how do I know this? because when anybody who gets banned contacts them, all they do is get a generic email WITH NO SPECIFIC REASON for their ban.

Therefore, Riot does not review bans, if they did, we would not need a Tribunal.

I would be very surprised if you got a response that WASN'T a cookie-cutter template email, to be honest.

We're rightn now reviewing cases in the #50,000 range. If we assume that even 50% of these cases are resulting in bans, that's over 25,000 warnings/suspensions being handed out.

Of those around 25,000, if half of those summoners ask for more information or an appeal, that's around 12,500 reviews and appeals to look at. If the suspension is something like 3 days, a week, or even 3 weeks, I don't see Riot dedicating any customer service resource to something so miniscule, given how understaffed they are already for such an overpopulated game.

That's one heck of an assumption as well. It could be less, it could be more.
