The AFK (Away From Keyboard)
A classic in League of Legends and online games in general, some players simply aren’t in the game.
There are two types of AFKs:
- Accidental AFK and fake AFK
Accidental AFK – results from an emergency or power supply cut out.
Solution: Ignore it, do the best you can, and wait for them to get reconnected
Luckily, league actually has a strong “catch-up” mechanism that allows players that are behind on leveling, to level up quickly.
Solution: Ignore them if they’re naging, or apologize to them on the things that made they wanna spam the game.
Solution: I’d generally lean towards just giving them what they want. It’s likely their best role, even if they’re lying about being a smurf. Don’t be too disappointed if they’re lying, and mute them if they start raging.
Solution: Request feeders to split push in order to catch up. If enemy teams converge to kill them, you’re better off as that player is probably worth no gold at this point.
The Surrender Spammer
Solution: Ignore it, hit no, and say “let’s play for late game”
And the emperor must be kept happy. Like so, they’re playing poorly and still require massive amounts of attention, muting works just as well.
