Over the past few days, a small number of people have appeared posting that they received a permaban during a currently running suspension. See http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=3062997 and http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=3055250
Of note, and particularly worrying, is that the reform cards for the permaban verdicts include multiple cases from the suspension verdict. Given that Riot's stance has always been avoiding double jeopardy and that cases from before a suspension are not supposed to be used in further Tribunal proceedings, I have to ask: is this a bug? It sure looks like one.
This was unfortunately a bug.
We've identified a list of players affected and have a special player support force working with them personally to fix their accounts.
Thankfully not that many players were affected, but we take these issues very seriously so the special player support team has been working around the clock to fix the accounts.
Quote:Is there anything we as Tribunal voters can do to help with these issues like helping to identify accounts affected?
In the future, just keep raising visibility on 'oddities' you might notice--we're pretty good about checking forums, Twitter, e-mail and determining whether the situations deserve escalation.
