which means you've left ~10-15% of your games... this is pretty bad when you think about it. Basically 1 out of every 10 games you play you ruin for the 9 other players involved. You need a new router if that really is the issue.

Penalty's don't happen from just 1 game. If you're going AFK or leaving a large portion of your games, then you will be penalized because you demonstrate a pattern that is disruptive to the other players on your team as well as the opposition.

If you're losing a game, rather than quit or go afk, just surrender. You can either type /surrender or you can select More Options > Surrender from the menu screen in game.

Ive played almost 2000 games, i have one leave. The power went out during the last 3 minutes of the game.

Make sure your going to have at minimum 1 hour to play EACH GAME. It is disastrous to play a game for 30 minutes, and have someone just quit. It basically wastes your time because it is horrendously difficult to fight a 4v5 in this game.

If you've got 20-30 minutes, just do a custom game.

Just curious, does anybody know/have a link to the exact mechanics of the Leaverbuster system?

Does the penalty expire and go back to zero level?

The exact mechanics haven't been released, because Riot doesn't want people trying to toe the line or game the system.

While I'm not sure, I've probably left about 100 custom games and still don't have a penalty. I'll frequently try out a new strategy or build order with a new champion in a custom game with bots then leave when I've determined whether it's viable or if it could be improved..

I'm not sure about custom games with other people, but when you leave there's also a pop up that says leaving in "Matchmade" games can result in a penalty, and custom games aren't Matchmade so while that doesn't explicitly state no penalty will result, it implies it.
