Seriousely, we should change the game mode when one of your team mates quit. Until they join, your team starts to fight defence for ip points: their time bonus at the end of the game gets a very high cap to it and for as long as they are short a player but still holding off, they build it up faster then normal.

if it becomes 3v5, they get a goal, and if they reach it they win the game. Tweak it so that if someone choses to gimp the game, its still an even fight.

any other ideas? what else would be a good alternative? because obviousely leavers dont care about ANY kind of punishment you give them and so far NOTHING HAS BEEN GIVEN TO HELP THE HONEST GOOD PLAYERS WHO ALWAYS LOSE IN THE END OF THINGS NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TO THE LEAVER.

split leaver's gold and xp among remaining players. don't allow leaver to rejoin.

that would only punish the honest players who legitimately have to leave once every 100 or so games or have serious lag and need to relog or dc and choose to reconect afterwards.

the bonuses from such a thing would be useless later in the game and not help any of the players still in the game meaningfuly, in fact its more likely to hurt them more than it is to help them for the previous reason.

Someone had suggested awhile back that when a player leaves they should be replaced by a bot that when killed gives no exp/gold to the enemy team. I think its only fair since bots really suck, but sometimes it helps to have that extra meat shield, since they wouldn't give exp/gold.

How bout letting a new person join the game. Thet are given the EXP and gold the leaver had ? Prob too hard to code that. But possible? Idk

Minor boost in some way to other four members of the team.

Enough to compensate for a missing player - Not enough to cause tactical ragequitting to offer a significant advantage.

...on the other hand, that sounds like it'd be annoying to work. Hm.

They could still let people who got disconnected rejoin, but not people who clicked "quit game". Legit leavers should still have to wait until the game is over though. Making people get more gold/exp could work, but like already mentioned it would be wierd if a teammate rejoined.

Replace leavers with Ryze bots? I think so! Just kidding, but I agree with you OP- it would be nice if something in game was done to attempt to balance the game back out.

they arent considered leavers until theyve missed a portion of the game - so those that are just reconnecting wont be affected

Replacing it with a bot would work really nicely. It would be good to have that extra oomph you need for a desperate push. Or maybe increase inhibitor HP or weaken super minions depending on how uneven the teams are.
