Well maybe, I dont play CSGO, so i'm not intirely sure how it works. I've red an article and watched some videos in before, and I thought that it requare all investigator to call suspect guildy. Also speaking of F2P, I also thought that they review only more or less hight ranked games. Aswell as more expirienced investigators reviewing more hight rank games. But I might be wrong here.
Most people found Seeking guilty. Simple. Issue a ban, but don't drag this out publicly.
It would have been logical solution, but problem is, in CSGO, for excample, judges are unbiased. They dont even know nick name of suspect and they rotate + they are part of the Valve sistem.
In coh2, we not only dont have unbiased opinion because each of the top player know each other, but also we have very few of them. Even in this situation, half of the clips (even from top players) are completly useless and were captured only because they were salty with a thought in their mind that Seeking is a cheater. This move already sabotaged whole proccess. And top players (nor, as it seems, community contributors) are part of the Relic system, which means they cant ban someone only based on their opinion.
Its a double edged sword. On the one hand I fully agree that this should have never been public, on the other hand almost all top players called Seeking a cheater, while after all this drama case was droped because of the lack of evidence. Wasnt it not been public, seeking would have had status of a cheater, but as I said previously he still wouldnt have been banned, because Relic themselfs didnt find anything worth banning.
Problem with your statement, is that if we start issuing bans based on opinion, then pretty much everybody can be banned because of an RNG or lucky guesses. Lets say, we all report to sturmpanther, and during my 100 games, I had 10 really lucky moments, which are very fishy. Then sturmpanther have all rights to issue me a ban, because he didnt see all other 90 games and his oppinion will be based only on 10 games. But based on thouse 10 games I would look like a cheater.
