I lost so many games because of afks or dcs in ranks, is really sad and it really frustrated for me because i knew we could of win that game easily. I dont know how you explain it, but im pretty sure a lot of people are suffering the same problem as me. plz upvote this and hope riot would do something about this

Turn up leaver buster, if someone does this more than twice in a week, ban them(from ranked) for 24 hours, if they do it more than three times, ban for the week(again from ranked)


If your computer is not working, or your internet is ****, you should not be playing ranked games. If you burn down your house more than twice a week, you need to relearn fire safety.

I know. Let's make a system for any person who leaves a ranked, get someone to track the person down. Go to his house, confirm who he is and then beat the living **** out of him.

Watch anyone leave a ranked now

I've actually never been on the forums before, and I normally understand that "afks happen." I'm not proud, but my power went out once, and i left. One time, my laptop just died. Permanently. However, these are rare occurrences (2/800 games or so.) I take the COMMITMENT of joining queue seriously. You're committing to a team, and to playing AS LONG as it takes. Remember, 4 other people are committing their time. So, if you afk at the start, you're wasting AT LEAST an hour and a half of OTHER people's time.

This said, I still understand that sometimes it happens. HOWEVER

In the last few days, afkers in ranked have become MORE COMMON than full teams. I played 8 games last night. Out of them, 6 of them had an afker. I had an afker on my team FOUR GAMES IN A ROW. There is nothing ok with this. And so what if I won the 2 games with no afkers, and the 2 games where the opponents had one? Honestly? This kills the legitimacy of ranked and turns it into "league of lottery" By this I mean "did you roll the team with no afker." You can all tell stories about that ONE time you won a 4v5 from the start (ive actually done it twice) But the truth is -- it's near impossible. It's essentially a guaranteed loss. This needs to be fixed.

I contaced riot with in depth screenshots of 6/8 games having afkers. They responded with a copy-pasted boilerplate "we will look into THIS player's actions" AKA they did nothing. But something DOES need to be done -- and until it is done, I vow to NOT buy any more RP -- the only way I have of showing my displeasure.

I've played about 2,300 games and i've BEEN REQUIRED to leave about 4-5 times, over the course of 2-3 years. The fact that people afk so much is a travisty. I believe there should be far harsher punishments for leavers.
