A video I made detailing why the LoL Tribunal is a negative and broken aspect to the community of this game, and how it has changed the game from years ago when it first began.

These are just MY opinions and are in no way factually correct regarding the way that I "suspect" the Tribunal works, as no one except Riot themselves truly know the way that this system is ran and used, and they're free to say whatever they like to keep the player base happy.

Please use this video as a constructive way in which to discuss the problems the community has been having over the past year or so, and how Riot can FIX their Tribunal system and create an online gaming environment that isn't pleasant to be in, or is at least comparable to the other dozens of MMO's available at the moment.

The whole DotA2 "commend" idea is something that really should be implemented IMO.

Agree about Tribunal but just to say pretty much all moba games fit this category the community is never welcoming and take game serious.

The problem with LoL is that not only do the players all rage, they all actually have influence on whether or not people like myself can even PLAY the damn game.

At least in other MOBA genre games when people rage and piss at me I can just ignore them. In LoL I'm under threat of being banned because other people just "don't like me".

I agree with the reward thing, its like a bajilion times better than negative conditionning.

But seriously, how did you get suspended? o.0 When a troll or rager spoils the fun, you wouldnt believe the amazing mountain of **** I can throw at them. I never ever got suspended in more than a year and a half playing the game (playing around 1700 games).

I honestly dont believe the tribunal system is THIS broken, even though I would like to have it replaced with "commend" system. Every time I used it, I ended up voting along the community, granting me point. And to be honnest, a 1/12/2 guy using Mobility+Zeal+Zeal+Zeal and typing **** from the start *deserves* his account to get suspended.
And when a pissed of guy said "F*** you you *****ing moron you pile of ****" to someone that made him upset with trash talk earlier, well the guy generally gets "Pardoned". Because people realize it was wrong to report him.

Even though I agree with most of what you said, you kind of forgot that a troll wouldnt lose his time on tribunal. Voting in the tribunal takes quite a while, and I really doubt someone with bad intentions would waste his time upvoting feeders and downvoting smart people.

Btw, "congrats-****ing-lations" made my day. Now where's my prize? :D

I have been somewhat of a douche against all flamers and defended people who're getting flamed at. I have feeded and failed becuse I am bad. Becuse of that I have been "reported" many times. I have, however, never got banned duo to that i haven't done anything wrong.

The tribunal doesn't work that way, if people vote on "punish" riot will check the case out. They don't punish people just becuse the tribunal votes says so. So saying your opinions will not get you banned.

The stories about "I have been banned becuse the tribunal sucks" are most often just by people who don't tell everything. But just parts so they should not look bad.

The community was just as much **** before the tribunal too to be honest.

Thanks to jhoijhoi, Brynolf, Jeffy40hands, Samoh, MissMaw, Vavena, Koksei and The-Nameless-Bard for my signs

**** storming at a **** storm to stop the **** storm... hm...kind of strange. Yes the community is bad. But you are way to negative dude. Raging at everyone and telling people should change it is just the same attuitude you rage about. This is pardox.

Fiora against Ashe? I'm surprised she didn't force you off the lane.

I didn't mind listening to you, but it was kinda like listening to those people who say there was no actual moon landing. You have no real evidence, you're just talking about what you've heard, not what Riot has released.

Off course a video game company can say whatever to save face, but if you get banned/suspended for unreasonable reasons, you can appeal. If you appeal and your appeal is ignored/refused, then you *know* you've done something wrong.

Hell, I completely RAGE in some of my games. I All Chat rage when someone survives on 2 HP or if I lose an exchange because I had no mana or because someone just rang and my internet lagged or whatever.

And I haven't been banned/suspended once. I'm surprised I haven't, actually. I've even reported people for "stupidity", like this Sona who came bottom lane with Smite and Ignite and started with an Amp Tome.

Anyway, I'm rambling. All you gottah understand is that people get reported, if all they've said is "***" once in the game, they'll be pardoned. If they've called everyone "***" and have went 0/50/1 and bought all wards, they'll be punished.

I'm curious as to how you know this? I'm not being a conspiracy theorist at all. I'm saying that trusting a gaming company who wants your money (it is a business) to tell you that their system is broken or just lazy isn't a responsible outlook. Regardless of whether or not the Tribunal bans the "right" people, is the effect that it has had on the community worth it? Why doesn't Riot take the time and resources to moderate their own game like EVERY other MMO out there, instead of creating a community that punishes each other, has no positive side to it (no reward system) and are actually given IP as a reward for a purely negative banning system? Now I'm sure people will say "Herp derp you can get IP for clicking pardon as well" which is completely true, but the fact is that person already had to suffer through someone else in game going "OMG OMG OMG report X person for X reason because he's X curse word". Whether he gets actually suspended or not for that report doesn't really mean much when his entire game is ruined by a community that is trained to attack and punish each other.

The system is flawed, Riot needs to create one that works, or actually spend some of their damn money to moderate the game themselves, like any other self respecting MMO on the market.

The language was strong and the overall outlook I agree is to a point negative, but I didn't just rage hard and /signoff. I provided reasons for why the system is flawed, it's effect on the community, and solutions to ratify it. It's not ALL negative, although unfortunately the situation itself is complete garbage, so there's not much positive to bring to this video.
