Yes, THEIR fault not the rest of the teams. No reason to punish everyone for the incompetence of one person.

Should it automatically dodge and que for a new team?

Yes. It should.

Good idea by the way. I hadnt thought of it but its such a simple fix to such a major issue.

Should just give a free queue dodge to everyone who isn't afk.

This is better for gd as it applies to all maps, but anyways I agree with this. You should have to confirm you aren't afk when finishing a queue with the finish what I was doing/join game thing and if you don't then it makes you dodge and have a growing penalty. the afker should get the penalty, not the players forced to dodge.

I agree, instead of picking random it needs to kick the afker and re q the match.

If there is a afk in character select it should auto kick them at the end of the timer and let everyone else go back into the queue for a new team.

I also think there should be another option to vote for a remake either in character select or first few mins of the game because of the amount of idiot troll players.

I strongly agree with this except for sometimes the player isn't afk and his client just isn't allowing him to pick a champ. I've had that happen a few times.

It should at the very least give a grace period for you to pick if you are the one afk. I've gone afk and friends started the game on me, I come back just in time to have some **** hero locked in for me with totally wrong masteries & runes...why can't it let other people start loading and let me pick a hero when I get back? And if I don't come back, the game should automatically end in ~3 minutes or something.

So basically what i see here is : "QQ I want more way to dodge queues...".

First of all, if the AFKer is having technical issues (bugsplats or countless other LoL errors), shown by the lightning bolt in a blue triangle, the queue will be dodged.
Next, why the **** would a player be afk for >2 minutes (30 second queue, 1 minute champ select, 15 seconds for summoners etc.). I don't say that it does not happen, I say that you might as well just dodge queue and/or report/ignore him.

The real problem isn't the fact that adding a voting system would break the game. In fact it seems like a good idea. However, that would make the queue time for ranked too **** high. How many times were you not happy with your last pick's pick? Then let's just vote a rematch. You don't have the mid you called? Just say you will troll and propose a rematch! Someone picked Eve? Rematch! Support Cho'Gath? Rematch! Why ban champs when you can just re-queue?

To fix this, let's put it only for non ranked, meaning that draft pick non-ranked will still suffer from it... Then only for blind pick? Drafts will still complain about AFKers... Oh I got it! Let's make it so that both teams has to agree... Problem #1) They don't know you have an AFKer (unless it's draft, and then they might just say no to have a free win). Problem #2) If it's not draft they don't know you have an AFKer and who would agree to simply re-queue after suffering from 3 re-queues in a row... Wait! Let's put Global chat in pre-game so that trolls can troll harder! Anyway it doesn't show in tribunal so he can just tell you exact team without any fear of being punished...

TL;DR : seems like a good idea, but I prefer to deal with AFKers than to deal with billions of "dodges"
