Portions of the tribunal system are returning to League of Legends this month

Remember Riot’s Tribunal? Back in 2011 it was put forth as a possible antidote to toxic player behavior in League of Legends. Three years later, Riot removed it and announced that it was upgrading the system. That was early in 2014, and things have been quiet on the Tribunal front until now.

Riot’s Jeffrey Lin announced on Reddit that the system is indeed returning, and that it will provide incentives for good behavior instead of simply punishing bad behavior. Kotaku reports that Reform Cards, the initial portion of the new and improved Tribunal will go live in LoL “later this month.”

wow this month? that sounds too great, hope it’s a good thing. Meanwhile there was developed (with the Riot Games API) this community project “LoLCure”. i found this a good and interesting idea, did anybody hear/read about it?

Damonvile It is by far one of the more tolerable communities. People are over sensitive when they get really stressed out like they do in League.

I see far worse shit thrown around in WoW, Counter Strike and other games. People brush it off very quickly (because you can easily leave).

However, I also see far worse behavior in the other MOBAS that do not have as powerful and complete of a punishment system.

_Ariel_ I disagree fully actually.

I’ve had quite a bit of fun in HoTs but it wears thin after awhile. What it provides is different than League, DOTA, and Smite. It certainly is a much more simple experience on the surface but overall I don’t think it compares to what WoW did to MMOs by any stretch. 

League was and still is the WoW of MOBA gaming.

Damonvile a pretty easy title to don being the biggest community for its particular game genre, not to mention being a huge gaming community overall.

Just like with WoW, blizzards heroes of the storm makes mobas that came before it seem overly complicated and generally less fun.

I really doubt they can actually do anything at this point but it is one of the most toxic “communities” on the internet.

The tribunal was more fun than LoL itself for me ;3
