  • The report system is utterly broken. 2nd time low priority without reason.

    The report system currently is broken to the point it quite successfully simulates the 'security' system in communist dictatorships. The lack of proof and innocence doesn't matter when couple of simpletons report that you 'work against the state' you will be 'removed' from community. It was way back in 2012 when players were already addressing the issues with the mess that completely automated report system without any moderators/game masters is. About 1 or 2 years ago the punishment threshold was very much lowered and that spawned many posts on reddit from players with good conduct who were banned. The change was reversed slightly but since that time it requires only few reports to be punished. Recently I was put in lp second time after I didn't said a bad word nor played versus my teammates in any way trying to raise my behavior score.

    tl;dr Player conduct system is broken and does not work at all to prevent toxicity.

    They didn't even ban the retarded Riki player I reported, They just put him in low priority.
