Hello. I'm new here, and I apologize if this has been discussed previously.

I wanted to suggest a way for players to leave all-bot games without penalty. For example, let's say a player wanted to kill time while waiting for another person to finish their game. It would be nice if there was a way for the player who started that game to end the game without penalty once their friend becomes available - especially considering there are no other human players who would be affected by ending the game. Though the sole human player could surrender, the game won't let a player do this until a certain amount of time has elapsed, so it's not perfect.

On a similar note, it would be nice if players could vote to terminate a (custom) game. Expanding on the above example, let's say two players were waiting for another person who was in a match, so they start a game for just the two of them. I think it might be helpful if there was a way for them to mutually agree to terminate the game, without incurring a penalty.

To avoid possible abuse of either of these features, you could easily enforce a rule that prevents any XP/IP from being awarded if a game is terminated.

Thanks for any consideration.

Regards,

You already can leave Custom games with no penalty at all, unless this was changed.

I think he means Coop Vs AI Matchmaking.

Ellye is correct - I was only talking about custom games.

I did want to double check, before my friend or I do this - it's safe to do this (it won't harm either of our accounts or leave some kind of record in our profile)? I was concerned when I tried to quit a custom game, and received the "leaving a game violates the summoner's code..." warning.

Thanks for your help,

There is no penalty. But the warning added to Quit Game makes you think there is a penalty because it was globally added to End Game, regardless of what 'mode' you are playing in.

That makes sense; thanks for the help everyone.

Also, as a suggestion to Riot, perhaps you could either change the exit message for custom games so users have a clear indication that there will not be a penalty for leaving a custom game. Alternatively, if that is difficult to do, perhaps you could add a "does not apply for custom games" comment after the global quit warning.

+ 1 on having the message only speak the truth.

I'm new and had that message come up the other night in a custom game I set up with me and 9 bots. It had me spooked.

Out of curiosity, if I set up a custom game to practice with a friend plus bots, is there a way to leave without a penalty or defeat? It's nice to be able to muck around while waiting for some friends to come online and/or wrap up their game.
