I thought when asked about double jeopardy of the leaver buster and tribunal, Riot said that reports for AFK where people actually left the game wouldn't be sent, but I see this all the time in the tribunal, where players are reported for AFK and are shown leaving the game.... The hell Riot.

I think its because there is a difference between being actually away from key board which leaver buster will catch, and having a guy sit in base and moving every 30 sec to keep leaver buster from catching them.

Ragequits are bannable IMO, leaverbuster is more meant for connection issues and people who don't know that leaving is bannable. The Tribunal is better at cleaning up Ragequiters (who otherwise only get temporary punishments)

Leaverbuster only works if the person isn't trying to trick it. You can make one move every couple of minutes and not get flagged by it, but still be technically afk.

Dota 2 has a different system where if you don't gain any experience in a set amount of time you're flagged even if you're moving around a lot.

Pretty much this. But I won't be surprised if that report option goes away when they finally get around to revising the report reasons.

Maybe leave reports show up if the player was reported for another reason in the same game?

There's also the fact that people can bypass LeaveBuster, but then they're not disconnected/AFK, so it's not technically this offence (in that case, it would be trolling/Assisting Enemy Team).

How the HELL can you tell the difference b/w a rage quit and someone d/c'ing in a game they happened to be doing bad in?

No... I've seen reports where ppl get reported for "afk" when the game outcome is "leave". Pretty sure leaver buster caught that.

Any variation of "I'm afk" generally indicates it pretty well.

Just to confirm, are Leaver/AFK reports showing up in Tribunal cases, or are you referring to the fact that some player's have the end-game status of "Leaver" instead of Win/Loss?

Leaver/AFK reports should not show up in Tribunal cases, and if that's the case I can look into whether it's a bug.
