Leavers, AFKers and Malicious feeders Suggestions
What to do with a team of <4
1. Replace the leaver after 2 minutes with a bot
Make the bot as smart as technically and humanly possible.
Can't make the uberbot? Get the current bot and having killing it worth very little exp and gold to compensate for the hit to the teams chances. Can't hurt that way can it? Send it down the middle and we'll baby sit it as best we can, it'd be better than nothing.
2. Leavers trigger early surrender
Leaver is gone for 5 minutes or so and now we can surrender regardless of the current game time.
2b. Same idea but add the leaver in as a Yes for surrendering giving a team of 4 a tie breaker and a team of 3 or less is automatic disqualification or surrender or something.
3. Mercy Draw or Rematch
Leaver is gone 7 minutes and pop up a vote to continue playing or reque
9 people now vote on continuing or reentering the que. Give a free vote a Draw from the player that left and ties of 5 draw 5 continue would side with the team of fewwer players.
Or just ask the losing team to abandon or continue, maybe offering a continue bonus incentive or something in that nature.
Adding to this idea of voting for a draw, an entirely new feature that could even be used without leavers in mind.
One team out class another severely or for any other reason that players can come up with, one team can offer a draw and both teams vote and the outcome instead of surrendering because an equal sharing of the matches rewards instead of a winner and a loser.
4. Reduce the gold or exp champion deaths give when there are only 4 summoners connected and further if there are only 3
5. Itzwarty "Reduce time spent dead for each leaver"
I suggest each player missing gives the team a 30% reduction in their time spent dead, a lot of these games are lost simply because 5 players v 4 is over as soon as 1 or 2 of the lesser team is dead after the 50 minute mark simply because the 5 v 2 is way way impossible to fend off on turrets.
1. Negative reinforcemen
10+ minute ban that doesn't start until AFTER the left game ends and leaver mark is issued.
Take their IP / XP and distribute it amongst the poor sods who now suffer a great chance of a loss. This is how gunbound does it with their matches. You leave, you give up 100 gold to each person you left behind to rot. Make it like 20 ip to each or 25 ip ot each or 10 or 15.
Each leave is a Debt.
1 leave = - 1 ip/exp that persists on wins and loses until some criteria is met
44 leaves = - 44 or if greater than earnings, nothing is earned.
You take off a leave debt point for every 2 or 3 games played consecutively or non-consecutively.
Ditto to above but instead of messing with someones ip/xp just have an accumulating ban that is relative to the amount of leaver marks a player has. 80 leaves could be an 81 minute ban upon leaving your next game.
This would work well with an option to work off leaver debt with how many consecutive games you accumulate.
YOU COULD EVEN SELL ACCOUNT 'resets' That reset wins losses and yes a leaver's debt as well as all other records and you could even include that with a name change in the riot points store for your bottom line.
Lock accounts beyond 150+ leaves for 48 hours or more or ban them outright.
2. Positive Reinforcement
You already have a games in a row bonus, but adding landmarks that show up instead of leave marks you have loyalty points that people can see as they grant you bonus ip/exp ect.
100 games in a row without abandoning an entire match? 100 bonus ip/exp
1000? 1000 Bonus points of ip/exp or just ip.
Achievements that show on the forum and on profiles in game and in matches.
Colored name or icon that stands out for each 100+ games in a row, marking you as an honorable player.
We need Vote to kick. Make it count as a leave and they can't rejoin till after the game ends, like a leave. Or Have it build up points as well, get vote kicked 100 times and you're banned because there isn't much you can argue that says people booted you for no reason 100 times.
Add a front end to the champion selection to vote to continue and separate it from the looking for parties system.
Thats it for my brain tonight, goodnight.
I think many of your 'negative reinforcements' are a bit too harsh.
Thank you tambreo!
Each post of support goes a long way to pass ideas to the people who can do something with them.
Yes, my negative reinforcement suggestions are harsh...to leavers. I don't leave, the 3 I have are because my computer "asus cg5290" is not willing to warm boot after freezing and 3 times I was playing LoL when it happened to crash and won't start back up for quite some time.
Leavers are a plague and the best cure is to inoculate everyone with a psychological vaccine of prevention. Give the majority of the population a taste of the negative reinforcements and they won't come down with a case of leaving again. Then, after they're cured, if what happens to me happened to them, it can be forgiven.
I saw a guy with 44 leaves on my list last night. I've seen guys around with more and no reason to care. Most of the suggestions aren't gonna hurt at 1 or 15 leaves. Its when you edge towards 50 that the leaving starts to accumulate hurt.
This is a great post, Xet! I hope Riot gets a hold of this and actually looks at it.
Well thought out and pretty easy to implement, I'd think.
(ps, when you repost this, always link back to your original thread. i had to do some digging to find this from the UI thread :))
I love everything but the bot idea. Leavers are better than feaders.
This is extremely necessary. Also, idlers at base. If you don't leave your base/attack for X minutes, should be auto-kicked.
this is really nice and well thought out only thing is for that ip that would get to the point were you getting 1k ip a game and besides everything else seems very good beacause me beign lvl 30 we lose one guy its over so yea i hope riot looks at this
I posted something similiar to this in "Tired of 4v5s" just a few threads down. With the positive reinforcement as you stated and my idea of not allowing individuals to enter games unless they physically click play now when a que pops, I think it would just about do away with leavers and afks entirely.
Still wondering if we're going to get out of this funk of constant rage quiters and IP/EXP GAINING AFKERS!
I've had many people afk a game, get the points and never be there.
Or leave during and gloat with nerd rage.
This thread needs more recognition. +1
