Even with my other 2 accounts I play halo 5 with. I play regularly and are ranked high I don't play to cheat I play for fun and because its hard to find games I've made another account to run faster games.. it does not mean that I'm playing irregularly..

If you create alternative accounts and purposely rank lower you will get a ban reguardless of your reason it's against their rules. Being a high skill player and playing against low skill players takes the fun away from them and isn't fair. If you have trouble finding games in ranked play as a high skill player you will have to just play unranked playlist or just be patient in the ranked play.
I agree non participation should have it's consequences. But also a participant should not be penalized for quitting games that only have one player (yourself) when everyone quit. Also some person for whatever reason, de-ranking, not participating. My qualifying first ten matches to rank were plagued by these practices. If I quit, I get banned. If I continue to play, my K/D goes to crap playing 1 vs 3. One player last night was just pointing to the sky shooting and getting killed. One match, team mates finished as like stated in this post with finishing: 1-15 or 1-14. What happened to the report button? Team killing for weapons is very annoying. My point is, that a lone wolf trying to rank has to play very well to carry a team or just trying to make it to rank somewhere decent.

I'm pretty sure you aren't penalized after you leave when at least half of your team has already left; I could be wrong, though.

I thought the first person to leave got the max -30 CSR penalty while anyone leaving after that would only loose the CSR that would be equivalent to losing the match.

Which is not a penalty. Penalty would be -30. Losing what you would have lost anyways is normal.

You also don't get banned.
Just played slayer and quit. Some guy SlyteHyde or other was going -1 and 4. System doesn't work and not enjoyable, anymore.

Are you saying a group of 3 smurfs playing with a champ will get banned?

I don’t remember hearing that before.

It will get the champ banned
Why would anyone in that fireteam be banned though? Just playing together isn’t an offence that I’ve heard. Is there boosting/ de-ranking involved?

As far as I know there has to be some sort of matchmaking manipulation to warrant a ban.
