Would you punish someone who claimed to be a member of the "Tribunal Elite"?

(Gangplank) [All] [00:39:01] : easy ip
(Gangplank) [All] [00:39:05] : enjoy the reports
To me, this is a combination of trolling (egging on enemy players by making up information about their account's history), and impersonating another person (akin to claiming you're a member of Riot's support staff).

On the other hand, I Googled the "Tribunal Elite," and couldn't find anything, but this player's pretty convincing, even if he's just invented the whole thing.

I clicked Punish.

There isn't any program called the "Tribunal Elite".

This probably ranks up there with players claiming that their Dad is an admin and will get you banned because they don't like you.

It's really obnoxious and totally deserving of a ban. Also if you feel like a player is impersonating a Rioter or someone in an official capacity you can send us a Player Support ticket to report them.

Apparently this person has been doing this for several months. There's a thread from January about it, with some of the same lines: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=1757931

Personally I think this infraction should be grounds for immediate permaban

You just don't impersonate staff or anyone with that level of authority

Insta-punish there.

If it were something like 'I do Tribunal all the time and I see a lot of people with cases coming up for behavior just like yours. You may want to tone it down a bit,' that's fine.

But this case? Yeah, gonna wear a little more of the paint off the 'ol Punish button there.

Clearly a red post cover up of a secret squad of tribunal elites.

I want the truth about this group! What do they do?! What is their goal?! Tell me, Wookie!

Metronomotopoeia do you happen to remember, or have access to the Case Number for this player?

Struggler9996, I just wanted to assure you that there is no cover up here. This "Tribunal Elite" squad does not, nor has it ever existed.

To help ease your fears we've dispatched some assasi... customer support representatives to your residence. Keep an eye out for an unmarked black SUV and two friendly fellows in ninja masks.

They're here to help you.
