The players on the losing team should get no elo lost.
To prevent abuse, the leaver will lose lets say 60 elo for that game, so they will be in the 3 digit elos pretty fast if they keep leaving. AND, if they keep doing it, BAN THEM FROM RANKED! Don't just give them a temporary ban, instead, don't let them play ranked ever again on that account!
Seems pretty full proof this way.......
OP, add it to your original post if you agree with any of it
I don't agree with losing more elo if you're a leaver, you are assuming that all leavers are abusers of the system, someone could have a technical problem and come back to a 60 elo loss which just isn't fair at all. Like i said in a previous post, this system isn't about redirecting the punishment, it's about preventing innocent players who do not deserve the loss from being punished.
I do however agree with perhaps a temporay suspension from ranked games for a high % of leaves, perhaps along with a warning stating 'Stop leaving games or you will be banned, if it's a computer problem, don't play games untill its fixed' this is basically what riot tell people to do if they have computer problems. Don't play because we wont unban you even if you provide proof of your comp problems...
