Yesterday i played a game where we lost and before passing the vote to concede a player bought up all the remaining wards in the shop and placed them at the well, one next to another (then passed the vote). This used to count as item misuse and stat manipulation, but my ticket was refused. Why is that?
I think a player spamming wards at the base should be a baned no matter what. Lets take for example a match I played yesterday, there was this guy playing Gravekeeper, he was our support and we kept asking him to buy wards, but he refused the entire game (like 50min). Then at the end of the game when the enemy was destroying the throne he goes and buys a bunch of wards ans spamms the base.
To me this a clear case of griefing, he knew he was the support, he knew he was supposed to buy wards but he refused just out of spite. And then he buys a bunch of them at the end just to keep his ward stats intact. And since this is not banable anymore, almost every game people are doing that.

We do not feel that multi-day suspensions are justified for trivial stat boosting when it does not impact the other 9 players at all.
Please see the explanation in the post above.
