Anyways, thanks for the post
Well, any MOBA game should be like that. You see, LoL is a team based game, some games last long (my longest game was about 110 minutes, in summoner rift) while some end faster (in summoner rift people can give up past 20 minutes, or there are other shorter modes, like Dominion on Crystar Scar or classic on Twisted Treeline, which are games that last up to 30 minutes max)
Either way, no matter which game mode, leaving makes your team weaker, and you end up helping the enemy team to win. And doing anything that puts your team at disadvantage is punishable, of course, you didn't do on purpose, but repeatedly putting your teams on disadvantage is something they want to avoid.
If you still wanna play more in the future, make sure you fixed your computer or connection so you don't have to leave.
I had same problem when I started playing, my computer kept overheating, but in the end, I fixed my computer and now it is all good.
Nobody wants to see you banned, but, people expect their whole team to help them win, and leaving helps the enemy, so make sure you won't dc anymore and that you can save up the time for the whole game, before starting a queue.
