PSA - in 11.3 we added additional LP penalties for AFKing or leaving games. Repeatedly AFKing will ramp this penalty up over time.

With a little more skin in the game, hopefully a potential leaver will think twice about ruining a game for their team.

Leavers never prosper

Wonder if they track average number of afks. It'd be interesting to see the effect these changes have on the number of afkers

This is exactly what we’re doing. The penalty gets worse and lasts longer when you go afk/leave consecutive games. You have to work off your penalty with good behavior.
