I agree a penalty, but not a banning penalty is what I'm saying. Like a penalty that involves them not being able to play in custom games for an hour or a day or something.
1. Leaverbuster doesn't work at all in custom games
2. Anyone getting punished for leaving customs is getting it through the tribunal, because people reported them
3. You can't get punished for leaving a lobby because there's no way for anyone to report you for it
4. When and if Proving Grounds gets actual matchmaking, there will be a time penalty for dodging (and nothing else) just like other games modes
