Incredibly annoying in ranked games when someone leaves, most recently "because I have to go eat dinner" and you lose, and still lose the same amount of ELO.

- Leaving ranked games should increase the amount of ELO you lose if your team loses
- Players on the shorthanded team should not lose as much ELO (maybe tie it to how long of a game. if someone leaves at 40 mins it's closer to the normal ELO than at 5 minutes)


One other suggestion: when someone is disconnected in champ select, currently it just counts down and assigns them a random hero. Meanwhile their lightning triangle is flashing away. If that's the case can you boot them from the lobby (making them lose ELO for dodging the game)? Otherwise it's a giant mess, IF the person comes back "omg my runes are all wrong" or they're bad with that champ or whatever.

I agree with the idea. A simple solution would be to make the players who stay lose a percentage less and the player who leaves to lose a percentage more, as an extra penalty.
