If the PC crash, just rejoin the game EINSTEIN.

You'll get a warning before you get a ban.

One thing isn't covered by this FAQ, because it's slightly a corner case and isn't technically "leaving" as many people think when they conjure up the image of someone saying "**** you all, I'm out *alt-F4*".

Which brings me to my question: does this include queue-dodging Ranked games?

Q: I just got disconnected from two games! Am I Going to get banned?
A: Probably not. The system will nail you only for a pattern of doing this. Two leaves may be sufficient to give you an automated warning, but it is not likely to ban you in MOST situations.

Q:This sucks. I just leave when my teammates are newbs.
A:Newbs hate it when people leave too.

Q:This sucks, my internet is terrible because [insert provider here] is horrible. Is there a God? This isn't fair.
A:You are ruining other people's experience if you are frequently leaving, regardless of the reason you are leaving. Riot games has a policy of not answering theological questions.

Q:How long can I get banned for?
A:The automated system can ban you for anywhere between 1 hour and 7 days for any particular issue. However, we will be sweeping the records, and will periodically perma-ban people that hit the 7 day ban too many times.

Q:Are ranked, normal and practice games treated differently?
A:At present, we give double penalties on ranked game leaves, because like, it's a bigger deal.


Very happy with this new system, and am looking forward to less rage quits! I think this was definitely the best way to handle the issue.

Zileas, you should sticky this for a while so people can be sure to see it. Also, might want to add this to the announcement section, I think this really answers a lot of questions people might have. Just a thought.

Thank you for the clairifacations by the way.

Ok, but how many leaves does it take for a warning and how many leaves for a ban?
I always suported the thousands of leaver protection ideas on the forums, but I don't think people should be banned because their computer crashed once or twice in the same week, for example.
If their computer "crashes" twice EVERY week, then they should get a ban.
