: Why was I disconnected Riot?
Heck, I was probably reported by my team as AFK...

: Actually 3's not always right. Some of the bot programs will sit there for 30-40 seconds then buy a renewable potion, an oracles elixir and I think it's boots. They'll also run through the healths on the way to "the fight" from the base even though they just spawned on full health. Aside from that their combat-bot is about the same.
This has become more and more true the last few months.

: BOTs ARE BACK IN FASHION AGAIN in ARAM Riot
True, there's no immediate money in them trying to fix this, but players might have enough of it and stop playing (before their addiction kicks in and they have to start playing again). Also with the new masteries it's harder to tell if they're a bot. I just wish they'd make a 5 champ bot team and go for bot matches, then no one would know, they'd level up for free, and won't ruin the game for the rest of us.
: its basically ranked but without the rank system so a draft pick with bans.
Yeah, alg, got it now, would be better if you didn't * have to * ban, for draft noobs like myself :P Another A for Sona... she's so hard to get an S on in SR... Oh, and I haven't played ranked.. considered it many times, but I don't like the pressure lol

: So I tried a game of normal draft, got the position I wanted, selected my champ, got to what I thought was a ban screen on the second screen with my champ still selected, when the countdown finished I got dropped back to the menu with a 6 min block for dodging a game... WTH??? Apparently I've got to watch youtube just to select a champ to play a SR draft game.. That's a fail on intuitiveness if you ask me.
...watches youtube... so you *have to* ban a champ else you have dodged... riigghht...
: Play normal draft... problem solvered

Yeah, pleased they've introduced a trial of this, hope it stays around.

: Normal Draft test coming to Oceania
Yes Please! This is what stops me from playing normals and why I play so much ARAM, will be a welcome addition so I can start playing some SR again with the roles and champs I want to play!

: Kinda defeats the purpose of the free weekly rotation
The weekly rotations allow you to play a champ in PvP or bots

: His E isn't a bloody flash you nobhead. It's a one man version of Bard's magical journey.
lol, obviously it's *not* flash, just like the other skill comparisons I listed aren't *actually* their skills lol But yes, Bard's skill would be a better comparison :) My point is this champ is just a mash up of other champ's existing skills.

See, they do have a major influence over this. Repeat the face palm for short sightedness lol. I would rather like to avoid starting a flame war, but I will say that Riot do punish regular AFKs. The reason most people who AFK won't get punished is because it was a one off, and said person rarely ever AFKs. I'm not being short sighted, I just think it's unfair how you blame this entirely on Riot. It's like blaming a teacher at your school because another student decided to start being a total arse. What control did the teacher have over it at all? Maybe a better title would be 'EUGH, you won't believe my luck with these AFKs' and then go on to talk about how Riot should better enforce the tribunal system. No hard feelings tho dude, I'm sorry that I came across as an arrogant uptight fuck in my original comment :/.
Look, I don't mind the occasional AFK, but they are currently common which is annoying, but tie that in with the absolutely ridiculous number of bots atm and I'm only getting the chance to fairly win a game 2 out of every 10 games. . I'm not just talking about this week, this has been going on for a long time now and I'm getting to the end of my tether. I don't have a problem losing a game if it's a fair game, playing 4v5 (or worse) with a BOT feeder for 45 mins just makes me hate the game so much when it used to be enjoyable. It is RIOT's responsibility to clean this up, if I could clean it up I would, I thought I was making a difference by reporting over the last few years but it's not making any difference to my experience. I see where you're going with the school analogy in that it's more than just the schools responsibility, the parents also need to ensure the child is being suitably disciplined, however I don't think it fits, there is no parent in this scenario to manage the behaviour, and the other 'kids' in this scenario can't do anything either (per the 2 game post example I gave, the reporting did nothing), only the school (RIOT) has the power to do anything. In the current scenario in a class of 10 students, 1 kid mucks up and all of the students get punished with them, simply because they are in the same class. To be clear, I also don't like playing against a team that has a bot or AFK on their team, it ruins the game for all involved, there is no enjoyment in winning for the sake of winning. And what are RIOT doing about it? Do they get a 6 min time penalty slap on the wrist if they AFK too many times? I'm not sure of the exact timings, but the worst I've seen is 20 mins on some players. How about spending some RP to get back into the game after the 1st offence? doesn't have to be a lot, perhaps the RP could increase each time, start at $1 and increase by $1 each time. Might be more motivating to stop the AFKs and then script kiddies would have to pay to level up their bots which I don't think they'd want to do.

: This was my favourite complete RIOT FAIL with bots so far this week: Played 2 games of Twisted Treeline as it was double points at the time during ocean week. Game 1, in a game more that has only 3 a side, we get a bot - "Fizis" [http://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/OC1/162786256/556344?tab=overview](http://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/OC1/162786256/556344?tab=overview) We actually did quite well under the circumstances, but that was 40 mins spent that really was a waste of our time. In the post game screen diana and I reported the bot and 2, if not 3 of the other players also reported Fizis. Game 2, look who makes a return IN THE SAME TEAM AS ME AGAIN having just been reported by 4 or 5 people myself included: [http://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/OC1/162787923/556344?tab=overview](http://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/OC1/162787923/556344?tab=overview) You FAIL SO HARD RIOT!
This was my second favourite RIOT fail of the week, I was the only person on my entire team that wasn't a bot: [http://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/OC1/162589206/556344?tab=overview](http://matchhistory.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/#match-details/OC1/162589206/556344?tab=overview) It was just so much fun.

: 1 person AFKs in your game for what could be any of a multitude of reasons. You blame Riot, despite them having literally no control over this. And I face palm at your utter stupidity.
It happens so much that RIOT need to make the penalties more severe, so people have to weigh up if it's actually worth AFK'ing. See, they do have a major influence over this. Repeat the face palm for short sightedness lol.

: UPDATE: Play games that matter with /remake
I propose no remake in 0 - 2 mins: 1. In the 2 - 5 mins time frame the AFK team can vote for a remake 2. If the vote wins the opposing team, after the 3 min mark, is prompted that the other team has an AFK and would like a remake regardless of 1B 3. The non-AFK team then have an opportunity to vote against the remake depending on how they see the situation * If the majority vote against the remake then it is cancelled and the game continues, otherwise * The game ends with the 2 teams pre-matched at the top of the queue and waits for another champ to join the AFK team The majority of the players in LOL want a good, fair game, this voting structure will allow fair players to enjoy the game. I think that penalising by flagging with leave buster is unreasonable as it may have been the game, internet, etc that caused the issue, leave buster for AFK should be reserved for those that deliberately AFK, not for those that *may* be AFK.

I don't think "E: Test of Spirit" is a very fair skill, I would think that more of an ult skill with a large cooldown.

: Instant feedback powers up
How about the reverse.. And, you my already do this.. Use the existing positive voting system (friendly, teamwork, helpful, hon opponent) to actively promote players in the queue into faster games and onto teams with people who also have positive votes. The more frequent and regular positive votes, the faster you join games. I hope you also use this positive voting when your instant feedback algorithm is deciding the outcome. I'd also like to think that the people that are being restricted/banned, their votes are being weighted accordingly. I've seen it all too often when getting into a game & 1 person is being toxic and another person will ask them to calm down which makes matters worse, then the toxic player insists that they will report the person... I'm not a fan of perma-banning, ban them for an increased amount of time at each incident, and each incident requires less reporting, 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 12 weeks. This would be crippling enough that if they keep coming back for 1 or 2 games only to be banned again either they will start to behave better or they'll move on to other games by choice. Perma-banned people will just create a new account and do the same thing, there's no incentive to try and salvage their situation.

Thanks for the ideas. I'm on cable and the IP changes about once every 6 months, and I've been using the same computer for 9 months now, so unfortunately I don't think it's either of those. It's coming up *every* time I log in. Actually, the only time I don't see it is if someone has left me a positive game vote in the game after I've already quit lol.
