League of Legends tribunal study reveals 92.7% of summoners are punished

League of Legends Tribunal Study

Riot don’t like mean League of Legend players; only just this week they’ve threatened to permaban those who show “extreme toxicity”. A redditor has compiled the last 100,000 tribunals to see how reported players were being dealt with.

Over 90% of the most recent 100,000 tribunals result in a punishment.

Redditor PersianMG took the liberty of creating a Perl script to gather the data. “I thought it would be interesting to analyse the most recent Tribunal cases (before it closed) to get some idea of how many summoners are punished.” said Persian. “So I wrote a perl script to gather some information from the online Tribunal pages.”

Roughly 92.7% were punished, with the most common punishment being that of a first time warning. A small but notable 1.11% were permabanned, while 7.3% were pardoned. The most common complaint was that of either racist comments in chat, or extreme feeding.

The results were exclusively from the North American region; I think It would be interesting to see how the EU fared in comparison.

I don't think perma-bans achieve anything Riot... when a league player gets banned, chances are that they'll create another account and start again. This will end up with them playing with the newbies, and hence probably trolling even more whilst catching up to there old position. It would be better if you brought in negatives to there account, such as dropping a level, taking away there IP/RP, other ideas of such magnitude. Banning an adict player who uses bad behaviour will not stop them from playing.

Maybe having another system like mmr but for player behaviour so they can all play together and give everyone else a break.

The title is wrong. It should be 'League of Legends tribunal study reveals 92.7% of summoners who appear in the tribunal are punished'.

All this shows is that most people who end in up in the tribunal deserve to be banned, nothing more.

Not really. It is a competitive game. Unless you are insane in the head, there's no way you can play a competitive game and actually be glad that you lost, or not flip out in some way. We are competitive beings, we get mad when we don't win. What do we do? Lash out, we call others names, do things humans have done for all of eternity.

If you look at it a certain way, League is banning people for acting out on instinct.

And you're taught from the age of like 2 to control your nature and substitute it with civility and dignity. The fact that these principles go out the window because you're online is a result of the lack of consequences for this behavior. So give them consequences, and people will begin to correct their behavior. I have found that since the tribunal there is far less toxicity. Of course it's still evident, but there has been a decline. People don't just allspam chat every single game with derogatory nonsense. I don't advocate crushing freedom of speech in most games, but league is frustrating enough without the full blown retardation in chat to go with it.

We're talking about stipulated morals. Is it bad that someone is raised up good, is it good that a kid is raised up bad?

semantics, semantics.
