Let me give you an example. When you leave games, a number is added to your Leaver Score (LS). For the sake of the argument, let's say you get 1 LS for every game you leave. Now, since you left a game yesterday, you received 1 LS. The Leaver Buster system automatically bans Summoners who reach, let's say, 5 LS. Playing games without leaving reduces your LS by (again, just an example) 0.1 LS. So in order to make up for one game you left, you must play 10 games without leaving. That's how Leaver Buster works.
Now, in your case, that leave yesterday when you were disconnected gave you 1 LS and put you at the 5 LS cap. Leaver Buster automatically recognized this and punished you for having a high score. So while this one game was totally not your fault at all and you are 100% right about that, the other 4 LS points are and that is why you were banned for a day.
Again, I don't know any specific numbers, all figures are examples used to convey a point.
I read and fully understand your posts on this subject but I have to step in and say that I still don't see a reason for this person not to be angry. (The caps and cussing might be a little much, but the anger is justified)
He was punished for something that wasn't his fault, and god knows how many others might have been as well.
There's no way to know this for sure, but who's to say that if he hadn't been forced to leave he would've have played the entire game? Let's speculate that maybe he would go on to play 10 games. I mean, it shouldn't matter if he had one strike left and he's been suspended multiple times before-it still wasn't his mistake or wrong-doing that HE'S being punished for.
I think it's unfair of Riot to implement this faulty kind of system due to examples such as these where they can't rectify their mistakes.
I mean, I do understand what you're saying and the only reason I'm bringing up these points is b/c a recent post on this thread you made:
"If you're this angry about a one-day suspension, I suggest learning to control your emotions before you get hit with a more serious ban."
I'm sorry-but that came off kind of insensitive and rude. It also sounded both threatening and like an ultimatum was given, "be quiet or else".
I'm just saying that the OP has cause for concern.
(But it should be expressed more maturely, for sure)
