You may have recently noticed a new player behavior system in place known as Chat Restriction. This system is intended to help improve your gaming experience and ensure faster punishments for in-game violations. If you didn't see the Original Announcement (http://eune.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/player-behavior/upgrading-tribunal) make sure to check out that news post and the info below for more details.
You can also take a look at the Chat Restriction Article (https://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/23395906-Restricted-Chat-Mode?locale=1) in the Knowledge Base for a bit more info on specifics, but please keep in mind that the article was written for the older Tribunal version of Chat Restriction.
Here is some information gathered from replies Riot has given in other threads regarding the new system. Hopefully this will answer some questions as to how this feature works.
What is Chat Restriction?
Chat Restriction is actually an improved version of an older system that's been in place for almost a year. It's intended to give players a warning about their behavior while still allowing them to participate in League of Legends.
What Does Chat Restriction Do?
Chat Restriction applies a temporary chat limitation to your account for a set number of games. This means players who are Chat Restricted will only be able to interact with their teams through gameplay, pings, and very limited messaging opportunities.
