I think the majority of the community knows how frustrating it can be to chrash in a teamfight, or just during the laning phase. Especially when your team does'nt pause for you.
I was thinking if you gave each team a limited amount of "auto-pauses" that could be a solution.
When someone chrashes the game pauses instantly and for instance 1 of 2 autopauses are used. Then after 5 seconds the disconnected's team gets a chance to unpause the game, unlike pausing the game 5 seconds after.
Good idea but not really needed. Usually if the team you're playing with will pause for you anyway. Also the chance that a mild interwebs skip (which I get quite often) would proc this making it quite annoying.
If you're in a team fight when this happens then its just bad luck
