Riot, seriously. What the hell is up with this?

There is already a large punishment in the form of the time delay between queuing again which in my opinion is completely out of scale with the marginal time delay that affects the other 9 people, but...

Leaving and queue dodging are two entirely different things. One is a marginal annoyance, the other is absolutely game ruining (uneven from that point forward, can turn a win into a loss or a shut out any chance of a comeback). From the time perspective alone it takes everyone except the dodger 1-2 mins to requeue. A leave in a game potentially ruins at least 25+ (usually 40) minutes.

Please do not confuse the two, whether it is a bug or not. Dodging still has its uses and unfortunately is sometimes necessary to self moderate the people and compositions you play with. Leaving has no use.

Giving a normal game dodge a leave mark really negatively affects your record and peoples perception of you because of it - they can't tell the difference between a dodge (which is fine, imo) and a leave.

Is there any chance when this bug is fixed leaves will be reset?

Great, it's fixed. But I still have 27 unsightly marks on my profile because of it. When I dodge I accept the responsibility and consequences of having to wait 10 minutes. I don't see why my account should be permanently negatively affected too.

Kog doesn't belong in this catagory.

Agreed with op.

(I've read that it is fixed now, so the following is just a "omfgdeathpenaltytoqueuedodge!!!QQ" anti-rant)

Now matter how much people whine about queue dodging in normal, it still is NOT EQUAL to an in-game leave/afk. A queue dodge is a minor annoyance, a leave/afk is possibly runing the game.
