Basically the more you leave the more punishment you get, the first is just a warning I believe, then comes week bans, month and even lifetime.

No, you dont get penalty from leaves when you play custom games.

Leaving is considered one of the worst things you can do because it ruins the game for the rest of your team. Because of that, when people see Leaves on your record, it reflects extremely poorly on you. Fortunately, nobody can see how many leaves you have unless it exceeds a certain % of your total games played (2%? I forget).

There is also a new automatic "Leaver Buster" system in place. It will automatically penalize you if you leave a lot. We all have to leave once in a while, but don't make it a regular thing and you should be fine.

At lower levels you will get the penalties fairly quickly, this is to prevent people from simply remaking accounts constantly to get past the bans. (While they still can, they won't get past levels 1-5.)

Are you sure about this? My friend got a Level 1 Leaver Penalty, and the only games he's left are Custom games.

A few weeks ago there was a bug where if you disconnected, you wouldn't show up as reconnecting, so you would get a leaver mark even if you reconnected and finished the game. (This has since been fixed.)

The AFK Detection system also adds tiny increments to your Leaver Level when you're AFK during matches.
