On my main account I was banned a few times for leaving, and I'll own to them and say I deserved the, and I'm not here to dispute those or the fact that I'm currently banned.

A month or so ago ago I left a number of games and reached a seven day ban, after that ban I made sure to never leave a game again, and I went about 30 or 40 games without leaving a game or being marked AFK once, so today I had to step away from the game immediately because of an emergency, I figured that after 30 or 40 games that my leaver level would of lowered enough for it to forgive me this time?

How can I lower my leaver level once I'm unbanned again? Am I at risk at permanently being banned by the system? This is the second time I reached a 1 week ban.

I'm not here to dispute the ban, I just want to know what else I can do to lower my leaver level or prevent myself from being permanently banned.

I read it, but didn't quite answer any of my questions.

They are based on percentiles (usually). 1/1 = 50%. I cannot give a for certain answer about the system unfortunately.

Oh, I see. Thanks for the response.

When I'm unbanned I should just keep playing games without leaving/AFKing and it'll eventually go down then?

Can I get a Riot employee or a senior to help me with this problem? From the time I was level 1 to until now (level 20) I have only left/AFKed 3-4 times today because I've been having MAJOR internet connection issues. only that amount of leaves/AFK and I already got a warning for a ban. And remember, I haven't left a game since I was level 1! I have always been very, very careful about the leaves and Afks but this was something I couldn't control. And also, can I take off the amount of leaves I have with custom games?
