This is a joke. All it's done is to make finding an AFK'er take more time. Seriously, we go through 3-6 match disbans because someone failed to accept the game, then we get to Champion selection, only to find that the person accepted the game (verifying his existence), then either picks a champion and AFK's or just flat out AFK's and lets the auto-pick select him/her a champion.

I honestly see no improvement overall. just an annoying popup that delays game play ever so much longer now.

I found a problem with the new system.

I walked away from a game that everyone was locked in and was 5 seconds from launch. When i come back 30 seconds later, i am at the main menu with 2 messages, one saying someone quit and the second saying i was reported for being afk. I unfortunately auto clicked ok to close them as is habit, so i couldn't print off the screen. However if i am going to be penalized because someone ELSE quit the game... this is a problem.

I'm also finding a problem here.

Solo queue'ing, if someone doesn't accept the match then the LoL screen freezes for a couple of seconds, then kicks me out of queue. If that doesn't happen, then I'll be stuck in queue for over 1 minute (haven't bothered staying longer than that) in queue without finding a match, so I have to manually re-enter the queue again.
This has been quite annoying as I've been stuck trying to find a game for 15 minutes straight, but I can't seem to find a match. I've given up because I no longer have enough time to play a game, so no win of the day for me.. anyone else getting this problem?

YO RIOT, WHAT'S THE FREAKING BIG DEAL MAN? i got afk during a match for a few minutes due to poor internet connection. After a little while, I joined in and WON the game and my teammates thanked me for coming back. And now, i get suspended due to me "RUINING" the experience of others. I beg to question this as i came back! At least i did not go afk fully. Please do see to this matter as others may face this too.

This is nice to know; I was going to suggest you somehow match AFKers with each other so they can troll less - but looks like it was implemented already

Have to say though, as a new player I've not had a big problem with AFK so far (mostly Coop vs AI) ... either the measures are working, or else its not as prevalent on lower levels.

It's the lower levels thing. I get them about 1 in 5-10 games, and that is just normal games, they exist in Ranked too
