Why give rewards?

Make the punishment more harsh.

because people just make smurfs when they get banned and they end up having 3 lvl 30's so they don't care about bans

What punish? You can't punish something you can not know it was intentional without a big margin, just like the leaverbuster system does. Leaverbuster will never be much more restrictive and never should be.

That will not work, you need something that can be awarded and taken away, unlocked and locked back. You need something aesthetic that doesn't impact the gameplay. Plus ip is meaningless once you have enough games under your account and have veteran status and rp is never gonna happen, RIOT makes their money that way.

As long as the ward skins are exclusive, I think that with an accompanying 1-day IP boost or so would do wonders.

Of course, the skins should be exclusive.

An IP boost would probably be the better option here. I would rather myself have an IP boost over a ward skin. I don't stare at my own wards long enough to make them worth while to me.

I mean if we really wanted to stop AFKs you could also add an IP gain penalty to AFKing. So after X% of games AFK'd in your recent games you receive a % reduction for your next 10 or so games. The reduction and number of games go up if your ratio of AFKing doesn't go down.

And of course you'll still get banned if you AFK continually.

Honor could give Ward Skins and not going AFK for X many games can give mini-boosts.
