30 minute penalty for dodging during champ selection? That is ****ing stupid.
 
I dodged a game during champ selection in a 5v5 ranked solo-q because our first pick was trolling hard, and now I have to wait a full 30 minutes to join another game. That length of time as a punishment severely outweighs the few moments of wasted time the other people in that game lose while they join the next game.

In my opinion this needs to be fixed immediately, or something implemented to deal with trolls......

Well you wasted 9 people's time.

Including their Q time + champ select time.

If all that total was like 3 minutes per person... you deserved 30 minutes at least.

Also, yes there is that rare occasion where your game crashes and you dodge, or there is a massive, obvious troll on your team.

But that dodge penalty also does not have an ELO loss. Imagine if it was like a 5 minute wait. I would dodge every single time I felt my team was weaker during champ select.

Now imagine that x9.. now imagine never, ever getting into a game.

I understand that I wasted 9 people's time, and I accept that I should face some punishment for that. But the queue right now is less than a minute, and maybe a couple minutes wasted during selection. I'm alright with the old 5 minute penalty, or even 10 minutes because I dodged a ranked game. But 30 minutes not being able to play even an unranked game is not a fair punishment.

It's the best we have right now. Being trolled sucks, but there can't be an exploitable system to get out of being counterpicked.

I don't think the penalty should be removed, nor should it last over 10-15 minutes
You can argue that dodging wastes some peoples' time, but how is it fair to get stuck with a troll and be forced to play out that unpleasant game?

That's still just 3 minutes real time then

3x9=27, though. Holding up traffic for 5 minutes is a bigger deal when you do it on a major interstate than on a sideroad that sees one or two cars at a time.

In normals, when I have to dodge, I only get a 5 minute penalty. Another advantage normals have over ranked.
