So my idea to stop AFKer's is that when someone leaves the game, a bot takes its place. Obviously it won't replace a real player but it will make a substitution until the person returns. When the person returns the person will pick up where the bot left off. This would make teammates less pissed. This is just an idea of a rough concept :P tel me what you think about AFKer's

Rough concept is right. Even if Riot wanted to implement this, it would be really tough, and would require changes to the actual game. Tossing the thought that bots are complete idiots aside, you still have to think about item builds, skill distribution, AFK but not DC'd player etc. There's a lot more than just worrying about bots being terribly bad in order to try to bring this feature into the game.

This idea makes me think of Awesomenauts, because they have that in the game, and allows for a drop in, drop out system in a game style similar to LoL. But the way that skills and items (which are all just upgrades for skills) work supports this system for people leaving. Not to mention that the bots aren't that bad, they can avoid death well and can even get kills.

The way I see it, it's a nice thought, but requires a LOT of changes to LoL in order for it to work.
It's pronounced bee-yordin

Bots feed like hell, I remember that they used this solution in "Dynasty warriors online", and even there where actual bots can be challenging, they still end up feeding ( the human brain simply outsmarts them, and when you get used to them, you actually learn their different patterns).

A more efficient solution would be to increase every single other member of the team statistics by 20% of the leavers stats. this should help them to stay in game however, here again, the solution isn't really effective as champions scale in a different way ( Ryze goes afk : all team have bigger mana pool but actually don't benefit from it)

I think the better idea would to have Riot develop a zero tolerance policy to leavers, at least rage quitters. Have technical issues or real life emergancies charted to leavebuster and have rage quits charted to the tribunal.

Thanks to MissMaw for the sig.
