Not sure if this has been suggested but I wonder if it would be a good solution. It needs to have some room for unintended leaves but I would love to see it for people who continuously do it.

-Lose all progress from that game compeltely (no ip or xp)
-loss of ranking.
-penalized ip/xp for your next 8 games.
-marked as a leaver after leaving too many games.
-permanently banned from LoLfor leaving too many games.

We appreciate the suggestions you guys have for discouraging leaving anymore, and we are reading them and considering them, and will be adding on to leaver-buster moreso in the future.

I didn't even know about this. That's pretty cool.

Despite all the penalty and all, Riot must take decision of punishing leaver carefully. Punishing players is a serious business...

There is an invisible line on how far this can go:

1 wrong step crossing that line could result massive LOL quitters => HON win.

It happens in lots of game. Same reason why WAR lost and WOW won.

"-permanently banned from LoLfor leaving too many games."


How many is that? I've seen people with over 200 leaves.

There is no specific limit, and sometimes they miss people, I believe theres another big ban wave coming too, and they'll have faster responses after the support backlog is cleared

Are you kidding? WoW had more than ten million subscribers before WAR was released. That's got to be one of the worst analogies I have seen in my entire life.

..unless you're being sarcastic and saying that LoL is in the position of WoW and Riot can do whatever the hell it wants without any expectation of repercussions, 'cuz their game already has the inertia.
