This inexperience obviously wont matter with many cases such as flaming and solosend, however, I'd be interested to hear whether you feel ready to make an informed decision on cases such as king juggling in 1200, teamkill through sending improper units, selling to push or building incorrectly as well as !ff abuse where you need to evaluate whether the game is 'over' with only one side of information. To me, these sorts of brq's require a reasonable amount of game knowledge elsewise it can certainly lead to a lot of dissatisfaction amongst players, even if they are handled well, due to the level of subjectivity involved. Being very new to the game can only make this worse, not better if it occurs.
Anyway this isn't nosupport, I'm just curious whether you're confident to handle the more complicated cases and if not what you might intend to do about it. Best of luck with the application.
Find me any examples in the BRQ section and I'll happily evaluate the ones you feel are difficult to judge, I wouldn't say I am inexperienced in the games that I play, Hell Halt TD I know very little about, Dota I am new to playing but have watched a lot of it and I have played a ton of LoL so I get the idea behind it. With Legion TD I have a large amount of experience playing it. King juggling is a quite simple one to evaluate in my opinion such as hitting each unit once (unless for TM, wave etc) and since you mentioned the 1200 bot, is it even more evident in this elo when they are intentionally juggling the king. TK through sending improper units again will be evident through the replay itself, watching the chat, the enemies towers and getting an idea of the flow of the game. For instance, if it's round 17 and instead of sending a DD you spam useless units it is quite obvious and players in 1200 elo know better so again in this elo I find it easier to evaluate, not harder because at least in lower elos the players may simply be new.
I have already evaluated king juggling, FF abuse and others in LTD, feel free to check through my previous posts as I do try to cover a wide range of different BRQ's and not just simply solo-send or flaming. To answer your question directly though, I would answer it with a rhetorical question.
What percentage of the BRQ's (all 6 pages of them) are the more complicated issues? You will notice the vast majority of BRQ's are not for complicated issues and are fairly straight-forward, I would begin by getting through all of those ones first. Once I get to the complicated ones I would first evaluate whether or not I feel I have the skill set to tackle it, regardless I would give it my best attempt but before posting I'd speak to other moderators to see if they came to the same conclusion as myself and if not, why not. From this I would learn and understand the more complex issues, looking at historical BRQ's cases and just generally asking the other moderators questions.
Overall I feel it is quite unfair to say I am not experienced enough at LTD to evaluate the various rules that may be broken that you have mentioned, even more so because I have already weighed in on BRQ's for most of the ones you mentioned. There are far more players dissatisfied due to the fact that there are 6 pages of BRQ's that need going through and I'd be more than willing to tackle them, increasing satisfaction levels.
TL;DR - Yes I am ready to tackle the more complicated cases that you have mentioned, in fact, I already have on numerous of my BRQ's such as king juggling and FF abuse. As you rightfully said most of the BRQ's are for issues I'd be able to tackle without any issue and right now there are 6 pages worth I'd be happy to go through. Anything I am unsure of, I'd get a second opinion before posting and look at historical examples. I am keen and eager to learn and probably know more about LTD than you may be giving me credit for, malicious intent is quite easy to identify as well).
Thank you for raising those concerns and I hope I have at the very least eased some of your worries regarding them, if not all of them. Your evaluation of my application I find to be very fair as well, sorry for the huge wall of text I just want to cover all bases and show not only how serious I am about my application but to also make sure every staff member here knows my position on each concern you raised.
