Regardless, pause feature would be nice.
Because I don't experience this issue anywhere nearly as frequently on Summoner's Rift. In fact, I cannot remember the last time I had a game on SR where someone didn't load in at all after champion select.
I had this issue 4 times last night. In one case I had someone who disconnected from a winning game just before we won, and it became a losing game (4v5 doesn't work in CS AT ALL). He kept trying to get back in but couldn't. I'm sure he was as frustrated as we were, especially since he received a "leave" for it.
