League of Legends - Tribunal

League of Legends recently debuted their Tribunal. Essentially a player run court system, where abuse cases are presented. Short of a replay of the game, all the information is provided. In game chat, the reported character’s stats for the game, all other games where they have been reported (for this case, imagine all offenses being stacked). If the majority of judges say punish, then the player will be punished, otherwise, they will be pardoned for that set of offenses.

Now each day, you can do 3 cases: you get more if you seem to choose the proper responses for each case, or less if you seem to contradict what the majority agree to. We’ll see if this has any effect on player behavior, but it is impressive none the less.

Although, hard to imagine someone being reported for verbal abuse by someone who is verbally abusive (pictured). Amazing.
