So what are the point of disputes? To request comp or something? Why wouldn't I regularly just report someone and get them banned + comp regardless? Is this just a way for support team to increase mediation, even though they aren't supposed to give opinions on tickets?

There's more information in the disputes post, but the gist of it is to provide an opportunity to the player being reported to provide their side of the story before a ban is placed (for example providing POV, offering to comp, etc). Addtionally, it provides additional context for the banning moderator (if comp was given, how each player handled themselves in support, etc).

One of the primary goals is to help reduce the amount of time that players spend banned (awaiting appeal) when they have exonerating evidence or have provided compensation for a clear accident.

Keep in mind that Support Team members are well within their right to give their opinion on a situation. This must be done using the facts of the information they’re given to formulate their opinion on wether or not a rule was broken or is close to being broken (rule skirting). The only thing Support Team cannot do is give their opinions on videos.

 

Note: While Support Team members should be knowledgeable enough to correctly identify rule breaks given the facts of a situation, they’re not staff, and they’re not always right. If a Support member tells you that you will/should get banned for something you’ve done, they’re not staff, so they could be wrong.

The only change that disputes brings in support team is that they leave their account of the interaction as a note on the dispute for the moderator that may review it in the future.

Senior support team will be communicating more information shortly.
