Nah you are cool
Sure the time frame could be tweaked to fit LoLs play speed.
Look OP, if you are disconnected and you can't reconnect before your 5 min, would you be happy to receive the error message saying you are too late to reconnect and your team already got all your items to sell them to vendors. I would not be happy with that, op. What about you ?
Basically.. **** happens sometimes, and if your power goes out or something wonky happens to your connection and you get disconnected for more than 5 minutes...while I understand you being disappointed that you got a leave and are locked out of the game.. the fact of the matter is that your team is better off having the gold that they got when you got locked out, rather than having you coming into the game 7-8 levels below everyone else and getting targeted by the enemy team as an easy kill.
So its one of those situations where if you arent a leaver but a victim of circumstance, your just gonna have to shrug it off and accept that the game works better for everyone else when you arent allowed to reconnect. Think of it as a sacrifice that legitimate players have to make in order to protect themselves and others from leavers.
