How about taking a page from Global Agenda? You leave a game, can't join another

Good idea. If someone had REAL reason to leave the game (accident or sth), 4 hours won't hurt him


Nah. I think the first leave should be less strict, in case of disconnect. It would suck to spend an entire game trying desperately to reconnect, only to find that "hey, sucks to be you, even though you resolved your Internet problem, you don't get to play this evening like you planned"

This will just make them pad sit, which is probably more annoying.

This. I've seen a streamer on JTV be unable to reconnect for some reason. It happened to me not long ago also.

I support the suggestion but not in queue dodging. I play this game for fun, yes, but I also play to win.
My idea of fun is not having 4 people who instantly lock in as Teemo, Evelynn, Tryndamere and Katarina or a team that is immature and gets into fights at champion select for whatever reason.

Something like setting it up so that if you leave more than 10 (just a random irrelevant number) games per month you will be put into games exclusively with other leavers and be restricted from joining ranked games for the remainder of the month. Then at the beginning of the month you will be put back into the regular match making queue with the rest of the normal players.

That doesn't prevent people from playing the game. But it does make it less enjoyable for the people who leave games too often. But not permanently.

Just my input however, I may just be crazy who knows.

I agree with the overall point, but start with one hour. and scale into 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, Etc, and have it reset every month. That would do well to discourage people from leaving.

Don't give this penalty from a queue dodge > I don't wanna play a match with eve that has Revive and teleport

Yeah, out of 900+ games I've only got 2 leaves and those were due to power outages.

I think that your idea, or something similar to it, should be implemented.

If you leave a game you can't start another one until the current one is over.

Or did they change that?

Nope, you have the choice to reconnect, or you can go join another game.

This would promote;

People playing a different game. Something Riot wants to avoid I would imagine.

People making massive amounts of smurf account, again something I imagine Riot wants to avoid.
