The League System....... and Leavers/Afkers

I have come to realize that when playing games on summoners rift, players tend to be very toxic. Most of this happens when a player either A "feeds" the lane or B simply does not communicate. What gets me the most is, the players who leave/afk during games in and out of ranked play. There seems to be an increased amount of leavers in ranked. I do not know why, however, it is beginning to become a nuisance. I have been into my silver 3 promotion series for the 5 time in 3 weeks. This is due to me losing 2 out of three games. The reason i lost those games was because a summoner(s) decided to leave the game and or afk. Much to everyone's surprise, this makes me and other summoners extremely upset. It takes 30-45 on average per game. Gaining anywhere from 15-25 LP per win and around that same amount per loss. With a leaver, your chances of winning significantly drop. I feel that reporting the players responsible helps, but it does give me the LP i lost due to the summoner(s) leaving. Them being gone does not eliminate the problem. I feel that when there is a leaver, there should be a report option to send to an analyst to decide whether or not it is worthy to make the game a loss prevented. The team that won should keep their win because they certainly "earned" it. I find tremendously difficult and annoying to have played for 5 hours and be back to where i started. Help?

Ok so riot will have to hire new staff or relocate others into the new "should this game be a loss prevented" department? Do you know how much time and effort that will take?

Leaverbuster automatically bans leavers. You have to understand that there are a lot of people playing ranked so there may not seem like anything is being done, but players are banned if they leave games frequently.

Also, what if you just duo'ed with a buddy and take turns leaving the game and telling everyone to report your duo so that you get a loss prevented? Easy way to abuse the system.

Rather than dismiss his idea by finding a loophole. This is something that should be looked into. if you can convince the other 3 summoners on your team to report for the same thing then that case should be given priority to the Tribunal. I personally see too many "KIDS" calling the spot they want then claiming to feed if they don't get it.... we do not negotiate with terrorists. People pretty much ignore them and tell them to go mid or support, w/e it is that no one else wants.

OR........

We could add a queuing system that allows people to pick the 2 roles they want to play when they join a ranked match. If everyone lines up for top then obviously the highest ranked in the match gets top. when the match found windows pops up it will tell you your spot. Now I realize people will figure out what everyone else is not queuing for and exploit it. This should just make the punishment that much harsher and more swift for a decidedly know deviant.
