By all means, i am no dodger. I have only dodged one queue and that was because it was a 30s room and they let a lvl 12 on my team. lol. Anyhow, i'd like to know how long the Dodge penalties are set for, but would rather not have to dodge to find out.

TL;DR Has anybody dodged and found out yet? For any reason - i won't judge you because i asked. Hopefully nobody else will. I plan on, if i'm still sober enough to remember, before i go to bed, dodging to see, but i'd rather not have to.


PS - IMO it needs to be significant. the standard 5 minutes doesn't really punish dodgers, as a 5 minute wait for essentially 'not playing the game' isn't enough. Random is what ARAM is all about, and the reroll helps that for sure, but we can't have people trying 10 times to get nidalee in the same time that you played one game. IMO

I think the dodge penalty is on a scale that gradually gets higher the more you dodge ...5 mins, 15 mins then 30 mins --- it goes up 15 min increments I believe. Can anyone confirm this?

I dodged a single time and got stuck with a 30 minute wait. I have no idea why, that seems like some kind of mistake

I think the penalties are higher in PBE because of the zero-tolerance there. Bans are also given easier and they are way longer, so it makes sense
