Thanks for your comments.
Perhaps you are confusing my suggestion 1 with loss forgiven? I can assure you under the system I have proposed there is no way people will voluntarily leave for the sake of their teammates.
1) The leaver will receive more ELO loss
than they would have otherwise lost as I treat the overall ELO gain/loss as a zero sum game across both teams. If the team of 4 saves some of their ELO loss, the leaver/AFK loses more to balance it out. There is no free lunch!
2) They get an instant 24 hour ban from ranked games
What person is going to voluntarily leave under those circumstances?
If you are still not convinced - all of the "easy to detect" scenarios I have mentioned would require considerable planning ahead (like 10+ minutes minimum) to trigger the "AFK Affected" system not just leaving in the dying moments of a game. And Riot could increase the number to 15 mins if they feel it is abusable for whatever reason. Though I really don't see how it can be abused.
