: Well, the fact that one of your ally can ban it is part of the game too, maybe you're last pick, nobody can pick your champ for you and someone is afraid that the enemy team might pick it. ( for something like Vayne atm i might consider doing it in this situation, it's a perfectly valid strategy. ) Something like Zoe for example was nearly banned every time when she was released, even if someone declared her, because people didn't want unexperienced zoe players in ranked. Just don't declare your champion if you wanna avoid trolls, why are you declaring it in the first place ? I mean often people just don't declare their champ and it's fine. ( because it's often way more effective to pick something as a counter pick rather than just wanna play X champion from the start ) It shouldn't be that big of a deal usually it's a good idea to be comfortable on about 3 champions per roles.

Completely agree with OP, it's stupid that you can ban your teammates, and even more stupid that I have to sit in timeout for 5m, because if it was intentional, then that player is probably a dbag or troll, and if it was an accident, they're probably an idiot, either way I don't want to play with them, let alone being tilted by not getting to play the champion I wanted to, because some blue falcon on my team banned it, before the match even starts. I can sort of understand it with a pick or ban champion and they aren't first pick. But some idiot on my team just banned my Annivia, and hardly anyone even plays her, claimed it was an accident, which I doubt, since she is rarely played, and even more rarely banned, and I had her pre-selected. As for not declaring, I can't fathom you are even asking why...Team comps are hugely important, that's why pre-selection exists, so the team can try to synergize. And more often than not counter pick isn't an option, because I almost never seem to get last, or even 2nd to last pick. Simple fix would be to remove ability to ban champions your team has pre-selected, seems like a no-brainer to me.
: Good now tell me something that matters. Rank got reset so half the things you are complaining about would have happened regardless of anything and the rest... the thing is barely out and you are acting like it's the end of the world. They are not going to revert these changes any time soon so keep QQing

They are not going to revert these changes any time soon so keep QQing If nobody voices their opinion they won't, that's for certain. Everything I just complained about has absolutely nothing to do with the reset. Idc that I have to climb again, or that I got placed even lower, I knew that was coming. What ticks me off is that this new system means you have to play a lot more, and or onetrick to climb, along with the fact that when matchmaking screws you out of your primary role, you either have to dodge, and suffer the timeout, or won't be getting any meaningful result from the match even if you win, because it won't be in your primary role. I mean you even have to do placement matches in each role, that's 40 matches to place, F O R T Y, and I don't think you even get the minimal "splash" LP if you aren't placed, because I'm almost certain my LP in my primary role was unchanged after that match.

Are you r%%%%%ed?!? I said almost the exact opposite, the new system forces you to onetrick if you want to climb, it's stupid, and so are you, since apparently you lack basic reading comprehension.

: Thoughts on the Report / AFK banning system
I agree. AFK punishment is too lax, every single day that I play ranked, I get stuck in at least one 4v5, and it is downright maddening that I can't do anything about it. Imo there needs to be harsher punishments for AFK in ranked, because clearly it's not enough when about 1/5 games there's an AFK. Imo they should be blocked from playing ranked for a day if they have an AFK game, and ramp up from there if they have x amount of AFK ranked games in x time frame, so if 2 in a week, make it 3 days, or something. I realize that sometimes it's a computer or internet connection issue, but frankly, others shouldn't have to suffer when someone knowingly plays on a spotty IC or PC. I think another possibility here, is that losing in a 4v5 should result in a significantly lower LP loss, like half or something, but the offending AFK player should lose double. I think this in and of itself, without the bans even, would solve a LOT, and it would prevent people from trying to abuse the system. In any case, there HAS to be more that can be done about this problem. I am sick of trying to climb rank, only to lose at least one game a day because of some AFK POS. Idk if it's better in higher leagues, but in bronze its literally probably about 1/5 of the games, making it next to impossible to climb out of this hellhole.
