Hey guys, I'm not here to QQ, just to propose a solid idea. I think that a loss prevented system should be implemented in only extreme cases. In the game I just played, our 5th player didn't connect for 1 second in a 52 minute game, yet we managed to survive for that long. I only lost 5LP, which sucks, but isn't devastating. Just some food for thought.

Above is a screenshot of the game I just got finished.

I like the idea... but I think it should be a vote on the WINNING team, to prevent the loss, based on a leaver on the losing team.

Does a loss prevention cancel out the win for the other team though?

No, it simply is NULL for the losing team... in my opinion...

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. And it is a good idea for the winning team to have to vote on it.

Then I would agree on that. I've gone through quite a few ranked losses due to afk/not loading in/quitting.

This afk in ranked business should seriously be addressed, especially if leaverbuster has already taken action at the end of the ranked game. I have lost around 10% of my games b/c of AFK players. Keep bumping this thread till we get a riot official to weigh in on the situation

Riot wont officially weigh in because in order to manage every situation where someone dc's or simply doesn't connect you would be mandating what type of internet you needed to play which would deter people from playing and we all know players = money.

I really wish everyone would take the fact that Riot is a buisness into consideration. There are flaws in every system, but at the end of the day if you are fairly happy with the product you are recieving (especially when it's free) then Riot has kept up their end of the bargain.

The only time I could see this working is if one player was D/ced the ENTIRE game, sorta like how it was in your game.
They can't do it with d/ced in the middle of the game because that can easily be abused.
I would like this idea, maybe the first 5minutes if someone is D/ced or gets d/ced within that time frame it can be a loss prevention.
