Choosing to leave a game while it's in progress puts every remaining teammate at a disadvantage, and makes the game less enjoyable for all involved. Because of this, we often penalize players who make this a habit. This is especially true in ranked-mode games, which competitive players take much more seriously.

Connection problems sometimes cause players to drop so we set a threshold for leaving quick play games before you are penalized—competitive games have special rules which are outlined below. Game Masters will not overturn leaver penalties.
