Greetings,

Something that we’ve wanted to experiment with is the idea of having more public Tribunal cases where we can have an open dialog with the community about the details of a specific case and why it might have gone the way it did. One challenge with this is that there are definitely privacy concerns with this, and we would never desire to make a spectacle out of someone’s punishment.

However – on occasion players decide to opt-in to public conversations about their Tribunal cases, including this recent example: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2243272

The arrangement we made is that if the Community believes he deserves to be punished he has to write individual apology letters to every person on his team in each of the games in his recent Tribunal case. If the Community does not believe he deserves to be punished then his suspension will be lifted.

It’s up to you decide whether or not to uphold the Tribunal verdict or overturn it. We’ll use your discussion and feedback in this thread to help guide future improvements to the Tribunal and behavior handling.

I have attached the three games from the original Tribunal case for your browsing. Please be aware that the screenshots contain inappropriate language.

The person who was in the original Tribunal case is going to try to defend himself - Note that anything not included in what I have posted may not be true or may not have happened.

You can read his justifications here: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...3#post25734112

This is probably not something we will do often - and this may be the only time we do this.

Prepare for Pendragownage.

BTW, is there anyone who gets banned and says "Okay, that was a fair ban, I was being a jerk and now I'm going to correct myself"? Everyone seems to be unfairly banned nowadays.

Let the fun begin.

Edit: You're screwed.

Edit2: Pendragon, you said you would give him the opportunity to explain his actions as well, would you be so kind to quote his responses just for the sake of him having his chance? Even if its miniscule.

Here we go!

Edit: I didn't even have to finish reading the first log. That sort of attitude doesn't belong in the game. Verdict: Punish.

I read through all 3 logs before voting, as I would do with any tribunal case. However, after his "you seem like the kind of useless f*ck kid that your parents left when you were 6" line in the first log, my decision was 99.9% formed. Anyone that's actively willing to type something like that into a chat log is someone who I simply don't feel belongs in this community until they fix their attitude.

Wow, this guy is a jerk. Though he's actually playing the game, and even GGWP'ing, he's making his team-mates feel uncomfortable. I don't think he deserves a permaban.

He had a bad attitude and sort of was being trolled in some of his games, but reacted way to harshly and kept going AFK.

Punish. 15 IP for correct judgement?
