Another reason why Riot is leading the way in eSports. Players needs to be held accountable for their behavior. Well done.

The Tribunal system is designed to be extremely conservative and give the benefit of the doubt to the player and always, always avoid false punishes.

For more information about how the Tribunal actually works, there's an FAQ here:

Right now on NA, we went through periods where only about 50% of cases were punished. A lot of players felt the Tribunal was being too lenient, so we've been optimizing and tuning the system. We're currently seeing anywhere from 60-70% punish rates on cases depending on the day of the week. In fact, now that we've removed IP from the Tribunal and introduced Justice Reviews, there are very few players just instant-punishing or spam-punishing.

In IWillDominate's case, his accounts were up for a permanent ban and were reviewed by multiple Rioters on the player behavior team and the eSports team.

Thank you for the clarrification. I was not aware of the dozens/hundreds requirement since it just shows reported in xx games in xx period of time when reviewing. Good to know it's taken that much for it to get there and then only highlights the most recent reports.

To me this feels like Kevin Garnett getting banned from the NBA for a year because he smack talked some people at the local YMCA pickup game. As much as I think its fine to censure behavior like this, it shouldn't spill over into the professional arena.

This is a very poor precedent, and I hope Riot considers reversing it.

Signed,
-a fan of the game.
Your analogy needs to be modified a bit. This would be like the NBA owning YMCA and him talking smack (probably more than just that) to people in multiple YMCA's across the country, and all of it's caught on the security camera. These people in the pickup games all have memberships and some have money invested into the company. Worst case scenario is one of the victims records it on their phone and posts it up somewhere like youtube which eventually makes its way onto the news. It gets worse if he's a poster boy for the company because in their eyes he's hurting their reputation as much as his own, nevermind the sponsors he has that are pulling out to avoid be associated with him.

People in visible positions of power resign all the time for off hand remarks that get recorded or posted on twitter. Celebrities irl get lawsuits thrown at them all the time because of things like this minor or otherwise. This isn't due to the severity of the crime, but rather the level of exposure and the amount of influence they had.

Wtf does physical assault on a non-sports job have to do with TRASH TALKING IN SPORTS?

You blithering idiot.

Nice comparing apples to giraffes.

Oh my god, you mean to tell me baby carrots have logic. What have I done.I just had some last night. If i knew they were sentient, I would never have murdered them. Please forgive me baby carrots. RIP baby carrots.

Good riddance. Now Riot needs to discipline these other 'pro' players almost all of which are found in the NA server. Rudeness and harassment are epidemic in North America.

NA has serious issues.

I'm really glad to hear this. I've never played with him, but whenever i watched any tournament or stream where he was there, I was very aware of his negative attitude. He really brought the team down and I hope Dignitas can find a more positive jungler that synergizes with them as well as he did.

I like Dignitas and if you ask me this is a chance for the to better their self and get back in the game with a new player who can hopefully help them show they are still a force to be reckoned with.

So, why is he only banned for 1 year? I thuoght the whole point of a PERMANENT ban was that it's... Ya know... Permanent?
