Be sure to include what exactly they did in the comment box provided. I would really like to know the method for doing this if you are in champ select, and someone intentionally bans your pick and says he is going to go mid, when he gets autofilled. Right, is it worth suffering through that game, just to report them? Or just dodge and forget it, but get penalized yourself? Its a lose/lose either way, and is the prime reason why trolls exist, because no matter what, they always get the upper hand in scenarios like these. They may get banned in the future, but the damage is already done. It'd be smoother if there was a system where you could dodge maybe once or twice daily with no negative effects (LP loss, timer, etc.), or being able to vote in champ select to "dodge" as a team.

Just remove Fizz. Problem solved.

Just your friendly silver ADC main. Would love to have Xayah. College work prevents me from playing a lot, so collecting enough IP will take a while {{champion:32}}
: Riot: Ranked Dodge punishment is far too high for current client
Upvoted - There needs to be a free dodge per day.

: Adcs currently have no way of helping his team out before taking down the turret, while other lanes can roam, tp or counterjungle. The Adc has to stay bot. This unfortunately leaves the early game in your teams hands. There is a solution though, if say you're playing caitlyn who is excellent att pushing, you could try to take down the turret early, if you get a gank tell the jungler to help you with The turret. Rotate mid and start pushing there, This will give your team more gold and map pressure, and gives your team less time to feed, giving you a better chance to win. Or play an aggressive adc, crush The enemy, get fed and take the tower early, repeat earlier steps.

: I have a quick question. At the beginning you mentioned being forced into ADC by your group, so how come you don't play with them?

Also, I'm not saying i'm necessarily better, but I am the highest elo in the group.

: I'll upvote this but do understand that Riot has never given compensation for anything other than the free win in your series. This, alone is huge for climbing already. However, I do agree that if you get an AFK in your game, you should be compensated. I'm sure the system is smart enough to detect when an AFK occurs and for how long the AFK has been AFK. A) If any player AFK for more than 50% of the game duration, rest of the team should receive reduced LP loss. The AFK will instantly be punished with increased LP loss. B) If any player AFK in the first 2 min of the game and doesn't return by the 10 minute mark, loss forgiven is granted to the rest of the team and surrender will be allowed at that point. The player AFK'd is punished instantly with increased LP loss. I can't even see one bit as to how this will be abused. Condition A will still result in LP loss for every members on the team. Condition B wasn't even a "match" to begin with and falls under the same category as dodging a champ select. The only difference is that the person who "dodged" or in this case, AFK, receives increased punishment.

: Sorry. I may be in Plat now but I have smurf in bronze and silver and nope you're wrong. That ELO people bitch at each other over every little thing so you're bound to have more people DRIVEN to afk (not accusing YOU, OP, of doing that). And the person who mentions "muting works well," it does work very well. If you were to mute everyone in your team and your enemy's team, you will probably be reported once in your lifetime. But we know majority of players DON'T mute toxic people they complain/cry about. You are in Silver 5 man. Not to make you feel bad about anything (since I suck too) but people in Silver are not that different from people in bronze MECHANICS WISE. Sure you have the once in a while people who seem to know or think they know what they're doing. But at the end of the day their mechanics are still very bronze-ish. OCCASIONALLY you will have somewhat good mechanic player but trash game knowledge (aka they constantly win lane, get fed, snowball hard but can't close out games and win). So it is natural to have a lot of people simply afk after becoming frustrated over something; granted that still happens in any ELO even in Masters even. Next you talk of how it is hard against a team that knows what they're doing just a little bit. Well I got news for you, people at that ELO don't know what they're doing even just a little bit. The problem at low ranks is calibrating your mechanics to your game knowledge. When my main was silver or bronze, I've constantly had people cry about ELO hell or afk's in their teams or trolls. Of course I met every single one they mentioned every 1 out of 10-20 games. Now comparing MY individual experience against yours is not how you should go about proving this point but I have 3 other smurfs. Right now most of them are unranked but one of them is in silver. It's not like that; it's the same in any ELO no matter what. It's simply not as bad at lower ranks and afk's tend to hurt MORE the higher rank you are as you get better players giving less room for mistakes and capitalizing on more mistakes than lower ranked players. People who complain or ventilate on the forums tend to over-exaggerate or simply lie to drive their points home. This isn't something league players are guilty of, a lot of people are guilty of this IRL. The AFK problem is just like any other ELO hell complaint. It's easy AF to win a game at that level even if you belong there with 1 afk. People at that ELO don't know how to respond to good split pushing or objective control or even strong laners. Now with all that said, I've won plenty of games even now at Plat 2 where I'm consistently getting diamond borders in my games with AFK's. In fact, in one game had 2 people afk for the first 10 minutes. We won that game. Now you can't win them all; most afk games you will likely lose. But again you're blowing this out of proportion; predictable too. Low ELO player complaining about afk's in their games. That's news.

But again you're blowing this out of proportion; predictable too. Low ELO player complaining about afk's in their games. That's news. When climbing the ladder consists of hoping that nobody afks does not prove to be a good experience, no matter what you are. I don't care if you're in Challenger, you still can have afks (sure, probably less) but for the set of people who want to try and get better, and move up on the ladder, it gets denied by one singular person. It gets especially frustrating in your series, or if you are in danger of dropping a division. Plus, you said it yourself, it happens in Diamond too. I can't get mad at everyone for afking, because some people have legitimate real-life things come up. However, I still think something should be added to help alleviate the pain a bit.
: Lower the LP loss. Don't completely get rid of it, because you technically CAN win 4v5s, but lower it so that you aren't punished very hard for having an AFK.

: This is all well and dandy, but it could be easily abused. For example, a premade could have one person AFK when losing to give everyone else loss prevention.

For example, a premade could have one person AFK when losing to give everyone else loss prevention. The AFK should get a major loss in LP or at the very least, the victim team should get an LP loss REDUCE. If you lose like 10 or something, I can live with that a bit more, but the full amount? I don't like that.

: AS someone who also was banned, I learned that I think I was done in by the Discord Overlay. It sits on the client and in game so it is a 3rd Party Program. "No software should interfere directly with the in-game player experience between when you press “Play” and the end of game screen." This isnt fun sitting and waiting for things to get figured out.

I never had Discord's Overlay work for me. But I really hope that this doesn't cause the issue in all honesty, because people could use this software just as a communications system (like Skype) and get banned for it, which I don't find fair. I hope a Red responds soon {{item:3070}}

: I'm not sure why you need a Riot employee to speak to YOU personally, especially since you claim to not have a dog in the fight. Either way, pretty much all of your concerns could be addressed by a proper reading of the things Riot has already said on the topic, for the past 5 years...

Either way, pretty much all of your concerns could be addressed by a proper reading of the things Riot has already said on the topic, for the past 5 years... Its more or less because answers have been somewhat inconsistent, and a lot of people are claiming to be "falsely" banned. That's not a diss to Riot, but they really haven't outright spoken their piece on the matter, which is why I wrote this thread.
