I remember when I clicked start queue when urf was just urf, and getting a queue instantly. Now with ARUrf, I get a 4 to 5 minute queue. Maybe people actually enjoyed the gamemode when they could choose champions they enjoyed.
Edit: This was typed and thought out for a quality minute. Another thing that Riot hasn't tested with being able to pick champions in Urf, is the ten ban system which would remove 10 champs that players dont see as fair to the gamemode, and after banning phase, the pick selection could be blind, allowing there to be 2 of the same champs on both teams. Just a thought.
