When someone leaves at the BEGINNING of a match...before minions have spawned....why do we lose rating!?!?


Especially when another person follows suit immediately after the first leaver. LITERALLY 8 of my last 10 games theres been a minute-one AFKer on my team -- never a SINGLE AFKER on the opposing team.

5 out of these 8 games turned from a 4v5 into a 3v5 when a 2nd player immediately left following the first.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

EDIT -- It should be noted: If your team has a minute-one leave, just feed the enemy team intentionally as fast as possible. They should be able to end a 3v5 feeder game around the 10 minutes mark; as opposed to waiting 30 minutes !

Because riot can't figure out how to fix it.

There are people stubborn enough to say you can win 3v5. I just lol and feed.

Also: because otherwise, it would be abusable. One person leaves; the rest play a 4v5 where they can't lose Elo and can only gain it. Riot wants to make sure that absolutely no in-game mechanic can POSSIBLY encourage leaving.

Yeah because the current setup doesn't encourage leaving.

Because it can easily be abused by 5 man premades.

If it's a normal game, who cares. Just play and have fun. But I agree and it's happened to me before. If someone is AFK/Leaves before game even starts, Ryze Bot should come to your rescue.

If your 2 teamates agree to do it, fine. I've won a 3v5 once, and it was one of the most memorable games I've ever had. Give it a shot, see if the enemy plays badly. If they suck and you can grab kills early, try to win. Otherwise give up asap and ask your teamates to dance in spawn with you.

In a 4v5, try to win until you are certain of defeat.
