Ever been in those fustrating 4v5s?

As far as I know, when there is a leaver, there is no extra gold generation for the team. This makes it VERY difficult to win even when ahead. Going to suggest something only for normal games. Say player A is not in game for a total of 10 minutes (could be a different number), they can be kicked if the affected team chooses to.

Eg. Player A hasn't been in game for 10 minutes in total (they can reconnect and disconnect, but hasn't been in for 10 minutes.. kinda like dota 2 system for those who have played). The team can kick the player (if vote is passed) and the gold split across the 4 players and that passive gold generation split across the 4 players.

This helps the affected team to possibly win (because they get a boost in gold and gold generation) and I think its fair as the afk/leaver is not getting extra farm by last hitting and normal games, its not ranked so I just think this improves gamer satisfaction.

Sorry, this is kind of hard to explain. But thoughts??

at a certain point it should be simply impossible for a 4 man team to beat a 5 man team even with higher passive gold generation, because if its really a significant balancing mechanic it will be wiped clean by end game.

yes i know its pretty much impossible, but still possible. Just giving extra passive gold generation/gold split from accumulated gold of leaver allows for the 4 man team to at least try and push for a win earlier... or if they were ahead, advantage isn't lost as much. But agree, late game nothing can be done

This is a good idea. I've played against teams, and on some as well, where it was almost painful to watch as one team dominates. However if the 4 team manages to win they should receive a little bonus, it is rare but epic and definitely deserving of a reward.

This is a great idea! 4v5 is pretty much impossible to win and you can't control the afk hero, so always done one man, which gives the other team a massive advantage in lane, map and game control.

Or, how maybe the game can just end in a draw if someone leaves the game for more then 10 minutes, and then that person can get banned from ranked play for a week.

Doesnt this seem kinda harsh if say a player is just experiencing a stupid high ping because maybe his internet is shared by the house and someone is downloading HD content during the wrong time?

If only we could see why the player was DC.

Yeah there's no way this would fly. Power outages, ISP problems, random Windows updates...there's all kinds of legitimate reasons why someone might involuntarily disconnect. Leaverbuster will pick up on this though, and if it's a habit it'll be punished. Plus, you'd see a whole strategy where, if a team were throwing horribly, one person could leave and the other guys could turtle for 10 minutes and nobody would be given a loss.

Extra gold generation? Let's kick the support everytime and get him back at 15. We can pay for the wards with the extra gold

Or, how about a buff? When someone is sitting idle on a team for more than lets say 5 minutes, his teammates get a buff that boosts their stats I.E. a +5% to all stats buff that increases for every additional minute that said teammate is afk.
