Tribunal Cases of the Weak – Vol 16

March 19th, 2013 Leave a comment

Welcome to Tribunal Cases of the Weak. Every week you’ll get the best/weirdest/worst Tribunal cases. As always, purple text is the accused, green text is the team-mates, and red is the opponents. The title of each case is a link to the full Tribunal case, but don’t click through unless you’re ready for NSFW language. Unsure of what the Tribunal is or how it works? Read Riot’s FAQ.

 

Case #5: Judging the Judicator

The player in this case is guilty of one simple offense.  There are five games total, and they are pretty clean, except for right at the end of two of them:

kayle2

That was game three, this is game five:

kayle1

Poor sportsmanship at its simplest.  Whether this is really punishable has been debated often on the forums, but in this case it was.

PunishTime Ban

Case #4: Dunking the Dunkmaster submitted by wes3449

Submitter wes3449 of NA had this to say about the case: “While this isn’t the most blatant case of abuse, I find it particularly funny because of how he thinks that what he is doing is perfectly fine, and that he’s actually following the summoner’s code.”

First Darius says this:

darius1

And then goes on to explain:

darius2

He’s so confident that calling people noobs is ok and that the reports won’t affect him.  The Tribunal said: Get Dunked!

PunishTime Ban

 

 Case #3: Silently Feeding

The player in this case didn’t say anything in these three games, but his scores do tell a story:

feeder1

Certainly those are unusual builds.  Now you might be tempted to say the Lux game was good, but that was a game against bots.  His fellow players didn’t appreciate his play or builds in these three games, and the Tribunal didn’t either:

PunishTime Ban

Case #2: Worst Troll of the Week submitted by Thrasher33

Thrasher33 of EUNE sent along this case, saying: “He was raging all game long, but there are lines that deserve special attention”.  Lines like this:

drunkdarius

That probably explains the all-caps raging.  PSA: Don’t play drunk.  You’re mean when you’re drunk.

PunishWarning

Case #1: PERMABAN OF THE WEEK

This player picked a very particular insult to hurl at his enemies:

varus1

No idea how he knows what his enemy’s crotch smells like, but he went on:

varus2

And on:

varus3

Yeah…  so strange and uncalled for.  This player got what was coming to him.

Punishpermaban

 

That’s all for this week! We’ll be back next week with another round of Tribunal Cases of the Weak.

    Wow, what the fuck. It looks like you are the one getting bullied at school, suppressing all your anger and letting it out on one person? What the fuck did he do to you? take a look at yourself and step up your attitude you little prick.

  • Siccariuss

    WolfSoulX :@Siccariuss tribunal disagress with you

    Tribunal is a piece of shit. I don’t care if 12 year old bitches or 20 some odd year old virgins agree with me or not. The real players and real people that don’t get butt hurt over the net agree with me that this shit is a joke.

    BAN”ggnoobs” :It doesn’t matter if u agree or not. “Noobs” is an offensive word, not just an observation. Winning and calling the losers “noobs” is very poor sportsmanship. Its against the code so if any of u got banned for that, u deserve it. Be more respectful next time. I love it when this kind of people get a ban. REALLY

    You must be 10 and bullied at school. Kids like you should be playing with other little whiners that fail at the game. It’s the internet son, suck it up. It’s a competitive game where you win or lose and tauning is part of it. Think other sports have that sort of pussy ass attitude? Hell no. Delete the game you little shit.

  • Siccariuss

    All you kids crying about someone calling you something on the internet. Suck it up you little pussies or get off the fucking net.

  • Subtle

    Most of these actually anger me. I don’t see it being a banish able offense calling someone a noob when they go 1-18….with a retarded build…..then report you for making a suggestion and “Being a dick” when in actuality the suggestion to him is good and he is the toxic player, never wants to get better, and is happy being awful and doesn’t mind losing ranked games where he doesn’t belong. I also like how these reports don’t have the chat of players that reported them, which is most likely just as bad if not worse then what the reports are. If you really want to get rid of toxic players, make an alternate method…..Make it so you have the OPTION to pay 10 a month….you have all characters/runes unlocked while you are paying….and you get 10 bucks worth of RP a month to unlock things permanently….maybe a que for people who pay to play the game

    Just be glad its just a warning
    I’ve gotten banned for saying nothing but “mia” and “gg wp”
    reason: no communication

    I find your statement quite hard to believe.

    I often read tribunal cases, and stay focused on the idea that someone is innocent until he is proven guilty. Which is the basics of the rule of law. So I end up clicking more often on “pardon” than the average community.

    Still, I haven’t read more than a few cases where really the guy didn’t say or do anything wrong. And you know what ? The tribunal pardonned them.
    In fact, I mostly pardon cases where I think the reported player’s attitude, albeit against the summoner’s code, isn’t toxic.

    Sometimes, you read the first match and well it’s obvious that the guy hasn’t done anything wrong. I really get pissed off when I see meaningless reports (I believe abusing reports is as toxic as flaming or trolling), so I tell myself “come on, gotta pardon that !” And then read the second match, and the reported player’s so obviously toxic that I’m just frustrated.

    TL;DR : You certainly did have a toxic attitude, but not realised it, maybe not taking the right game into account.

  • Varus [All]

    OMG why do you post my tribunal case dude ???????

    “kindafunny” got the most disgusting crotch odor !!!!!

  • BAN”ggnoobs”

  • Wurst

    I’d love to see the reaction of those ragers :D

  • Blackbeast

    @XeroLate Even if the Lux game was bot, it’s still likely that the other games weren’t. One game alone on the tribunal is worthy of a punishment.

  • XeroLate

    “Now you might be tempted to say the Lux game was good, but that was a game against bots.” If it was against bots, why is he facing consequences? Riot you’re all obnoxious

  • BladesShadow

    Tribunal bans = numerous reports = punishments according to number of reports.

    This is pretty much the tribunal. Note how this is not based on severity of the “crimes” but the amount of reports that one receives. Of course, the more severe the action, the more reports the individual will receive. Everyone that has been punished or banned by the tribunal has done many actions, not just one action to get them punished. Hope this clarifies what the tribunal is.

  • Klasta

    @DethByGaming
    That’s the biggest bullshit ever, I’ve gotten a warning for saying nothing all game long except “gg wp” at the end, yet for some unknown reason I got a majority punishment because 2 enemy players reported me. Tribunal is complete shit and just presses the punishment button without even reading it. Tribunal voters shouldn’t be allowed to vote before they read through the entire chat of every game because right now they just see how many cases and how many reporters and press punish.

  • DethByGaming

    @hehyphyalldaway
    I think someone got banned by the Tribunal and is a little touchy about the subject. The Tribunal is a good system. You don’t get banned for saying “gg noobs” once, you get banned for saying it every game.

  • sixsix6

    my last comment was meant to you.@PsychoticDreams

  • A

    Time ban for saying gg noobs? Shitbunal strikes again. Ban for calling others “noobs” ? This game and it’s community. LoL /facepalm.

  • sixsix6

    @Moobu
    i totaly agree with u, “banning” or “punishing” has been more important than the game it self. if i made this game, i would not had this ban stuff for everything, just for leaving and harrasing like when people says ” you f*ucktard etc. and not get banned because of saying noob or gg easy noobs. if u understand

    @CC-2224
    wtf do u mean of course he will be punished. for saying gg noobs? i cant believe people are ok with this…..its the fkn internet people u cant say gg noobs? omg. LOL honestly just lol

  • CC-2224

    Do you guys even know how the Tribunal works ? The case isn’t completly shown here, sometimes they got warnings beforehand or they have this kind of behaviour for multiple games. If someone says “GG noobs” everytime he loses and it must be a lot of times for people like that, of course he’ll be punished, they show the more obvious that’s all.
    I’ve seen cases worst than those and I guess they could show them, people getting reported 20 times in 5 games, being racist. The Tribunal works fine, otherwise why would Riot have kept it ?

  • Dude Ezekiel

    @Bkid not bad dude! i once worked in a call center too! it makes sense! but with the amount of reports per day, are riot really willing to invest money in report reviewal?????

  • Bkid

    @Dude Ezekiel

    Yeah, but how do you fix *that*? If Riot had the money, which I’m sure they do, they need to do quality control. I’ve worked in a few calls centers over the years, and you never see the *employees* doing quality. That doesn’t make sense.

    You instead have a dedicated group of people that do nothing but grade the employees, i.e. a dedicated group of people that do nothing but tribunal cases. They would also get audited every once in a while, where they would pick one case and everyone would judge it, and see how close everyone gets to the same answer. That would keep it consistant.

  • Dude Ezekiel

    @Bkid so the problem is not the tribunal itself, its the community that’s filled with trolls…..

  • Bkid

    While I won’t go on an all caps rampage, consider I’ve been warned twice in the tribunal already, and I’m quite grateful that I haven’t received a time ban yet, I will say that the tribunal is quite a joke.

    There aren’t many out there, but here and there you’ll find a case where a person is either warned or banned, and you’ll look at the case and say, “Wait…what?”. And I’m not talking about a case that’s on the fence, I’m talking absolutely 100% they didn’t do ANYTHING to get reported.

    Unfortunately there are enough tribunal trolls where they can all vote “punish” on a case, and they will end up being the majority. I can’t think of a fix it myself, at least not right off hand, but there needs to be SOMETHING done.

  • hehyphyalldaway

    have you guys never played a competitive sport>????? nobody ever said one word to you during the game??? ever????????? its the internet who cares if u get called a noob thats been happening all over the world for years now its ok. the interweb wont hurt u

  • Dude Ezekiel

    you guys dont realize yet how tribunal is a way of getting rid of toxic players who have been repeating their offenses many times….

    @hehyphyalld you clearly are one of those toxix players…it’s ppl like you that are polluting the league…change your attitude cause right now you’re just proving a point: you should get banned too!!!!

  • 5hitstorm

    That first ban is bullshit… Riots ban Nazi’s are getting ridiculous. You literally can’t say anything in a game or you’ll get banned, and if you don’t say anything, you’ll get banned. They’ll realize how retarded they are when they have 0 subscribers left.

  • felix

    i think that the people in the tribunal that ban people for saying “gg noobs” or “easy” is because, they loose and its said to them, they are not impartial

  • Tribisajoke

    Tribunal is a joke. A punishment system made up with good intentions, but fail to disappear to to the creators being blind to what it actually accomplishes. aka nothing. a blind no mercy public punishment system used by the same slime and vomit that pools stream chats. It is a truly sad sign that Riot has let this go on as long as it has.

  • Wateven

    How the fuck am I not perma banned?!

  • Cobrastriker

    hehyphyalldaway :
    tribunal is a bad joke, gg noobs is bannabale now. ROFL what fucking nerds that sit on there BOTTOM LINE IF U SPEND TIME JUDGING ON TRIBUNAL AND U BAN FOR “GG NOOBS” I CAN DIRECTLY CORRELATE THE NUMBER OF CASES YOU JUDGE DAILY TO THE AMOUNT OF ACNE ON UR FACE U FUCKING NERDS STOP DOING TRIBUNAL GO OUTSIDE AND GET PROACTIVE HOLY FK

    But it is the most disrespectful thing you can do to your opponent, i wonder why you don’t see everyone say “GG noobs” because they know it is unsportsmen like and offensive. also if you spend time yelling at people for their opinions you have no life(note: i am not using all caps)

    Did somebody get their account with $200 worth of skins permabanned? I’m assuming that you’re as charming in game as you are here on the website. Tribunal exists to remove toxic people like you from the environment.

  • belone

    @hehyphyalldaway
    Stop raging you idiot, i bet youre one of those ”EASY” saying players after a game.

    That’s bannable to ya know.

  • WolfSoulX

    @hehyphyalldaway
    someone is mad

  • archon

    personally I think that anyone who sincerely calls other people noobs should just be permabanned

  • Matt

    Tribunal is a fucking joke…no if’s and’s or but’s about it.

  • bal917

    @Moobu
    Yeah I know, that’s what I was saying. He probably was already warned.

  • Moobu

    For those of you complaining about the time ban for “gg noobs” you need to realize how tribunal works. He isn’t getting banned based off of the severity of his actions… he’s getting a time ban because its his 5th 8th or 12th (insert amount of times here) time showing up in the tribunal and being found guilty.

    Everyone needs to realize that the punishment given pertains to MULTIPLE cases that probably happened over months. He’s being time banned for being a repeat offender not calling people noobs.

  • bal917

    I think a time ban for “gg noobs” is a little harsh. I think a warning would have been better. Probably already got warned and didn’t listen… but, we don’t know what other cases the player has been in :/

  • lazorsss

    lol @ drunk darius

  • Starfox

    If “gg noobs” is good for a time ban, that had to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Then again, I think people who do that are obnoxious, so please, get rid of ‘em.
