Over my last fifty game more than thirty have featured someone afk from the start on one of the teams. I used to think I was just complaining until I started keeping a tally and realized just how bad the AFK problem is in this gametype.
Is there some technical issue here keeping people from connecting? It didnt seem so bad until a week ago or so.

I find this to be a serious problem in Blind Pick, I assume it's mostly due to SR players trolling/being ******s.

Never had an issue with it in Draft.

Looking up your Elo, I think it's because you're at the very starting level. Some of these players have never played a MOBA and are just starting out in LoL, so they have no real investment to continue and finish the game. The amount of AFKs will decrease as you get better and raise your Elo, since you start dealing with people who are more interested in finishing games.

They aren't even starting though. It isn't a matter of skill dominion is pretty impossi le to carry 4/5 from the start.
