    My game crashes in Linux when clicking on the store, then riotgames has the nerve to give me a penalty as if it was my fault.
    Have you ever heard of such a thing? Penalizing your players?
    Not very encouraging to make me what to come back.

    I can think of a few - like
    • Everquest
    • UFC 2009 Undisputed
    • Call of Duty
    • Halo Reach
    • Tekken Revolution
    • Everquest II
    • Defense of the Ancients
    • MechWarrior Online
    • Team Fortress Mann Up
    • WWE '12
    • Heroes of Newerth
    • Spartacus Legends
    • Assassin's Creed
    • Smite
    • Spiral Knights.

      Pretty much games where deliberate disconnections can have an impact on the game for other people. Unfortunately there's no way to tell the difference between a disconnection and a crash - either way around, the connection gets closed.

    I guess I can see the need to protect the user...but maybe they could be a bit nicer about it....even let the players decide who really needs a warning shot across the bow?

    Wow, they all have penalties?
    What about if I close a game because I have to go to work and can't finish?
    Do I get penalized for leaving then?

    I normally play Drakensang and Neverwinter online and its all drop-in-drop-out with no penalties at all.
    Gives the player more freedom.

    Exactly, games are supposed to be entertaining...
    Being killed over an over is punishment enough, but I guess if you have a large enough following you can afford to kill those lazy players who join a game and just leave.
    But at the same time, if they are banned, they can just signup again with a new email.
    Guess they will have to be banned via IP address.

    Banning by IP is stupid as well, because anyone on a dynamic connection (DSL, Cable, etc.) will likely change IPs on a regular basis.

    Agreed! My IP is dynamic so banning it would be a waste of time, but they apparently got to try something... right?
