: Yeah, not liking the idea that we could be going from 6 bans to 5 bans depending on who's banning.
The average number of bans is likely going to settle down around 8, the odds of the same 5 champs being picked on both teams out of over 125 champs is so ridiculously small as to not even be worth mentioning. In a realistic scenario the worst case is going to be 6 or 7 unique bans, that is the same or more than happens now.
: We used to have a mode called team builder that pretty much did what you wanted :) Sad that it's gone.
It also took really long to actually get into a game, although I am of the opinion that they should have removed blind pick instead of team builder. That would have helped the wait times and we would still have team builder.
: Dang Cactopus. Way to kick the Yorick players while they're down. Deliciously savage.
Considering he just got buffed and is actually quite fun I'm not worried about a lack of new skins for him.
: But... ARAM is random... so you don't get to choose...
It's only random in theory, there are a lot of ARAM only accounts that stack the deck in their favor.

: Why is it that?
A 50% win rate isn't bad, it's normal. In every game of LoL 50% of players lose every game, this isn't a bad thing it's the way PvP systems work. Just focus on improving and helping your team more, likely you are tunneling too hard on your own things.

: Most people will have to pick two positions. I'll pick "Support/It doesn't matter what I'm putting here because the system will choose to have me Support."
You will be surprised, there are a lot more supports out there than the community seems to think. I call 'support or mid pref' in most games currently and still end up going mid probably 40% of the time because someone else wants support.
Gauthy (NA)
: Except that the support role feels useless outside of the competitive scenario. There's absolutely no way the support outplays someone, get's an important kill, snowballs and carries the team to victory in solo queue. The only impactful decisions the supports make right now are through shotcalling and smart warding. If the team doesn't respect the support's oppinion, then he/she becomes completely helpless and doomed to try and babysit for the crazy team that never follows up but always picks bad fights. I think Rito should re-think the role completely and give them the commander status, so people will start playing support more often. Jungle main here.
Not all supports are take charge people some just like to enable other people to do great things, I would hate it if I was suddenly expected to make calls and be in charge. I play support so I can make other players feel like gods not to pad my own ego, when I want to do that I play mid.
: >since you don't space out her abilities for more than one sheen proc. You should try Bruiser Diana. Sure, it's pretty much inferior in almost every way, but it's fun and makes great use of sheen proc.

I play it top lane sometimes, it's fun. I really like going Hourglass into Nashors or Iceborn, then full tank no one expects how hard it is to peel a champ with that much slow and unending gap closers. You can also get a surprising amount of damage out of her passive if you can get out more than one or two autos.
: Totally agree, this lowers the early damage of quite a few champs like diana, fizz, and ekko. It would be much better if they had both runeglaive and runic echo, runic echo for casters or poke ap junglers and runeglaive for spammy or assassin ap junglers

It would be much better if they had both runeglaive and runic echo, runic echo for casters or poke ap junglers and runeglaive for spammy or assassin ap junglers This is likely better for Diana as she really likes the extra AP and the move speed, plus her sheen synergy is iffy anyway since you don't space out her abilities for more than one sheen proc.
: 60 AP and 10% movement speed and that passive. why don't you just buy idk. lichbane? pointless.

You can get both, and it's a mini Ludens now that unless I read some things wrong stacks with normal ludens.
: ARE THEY SAYING THEY DECIDE WERE YOU GO IM SO CONFUSED
Nope, you have even more control with this than the current draft options.

I hope so I would love to get in on testing that while not on the PBE, I hate playing on there the variance in skill and attitude really gets to me. (Just to clarify I don't like how there are bronze and diamond players in the same games, plus a lot of people are just goofing off)
: why change"break" something that isn't broken. riot just focus on getting west a dedicated server again geez. we need punishments for people who force surrenders, it's ruining the late-game scaling champ preference and strategy. people would rather play overly-aggressive and lose and start again than play conservatively and win late. they give up at 20 mins if they haven't demolished everyone and if u disagree they either give up and afk or feed more thus "proving" their point that the game was "over" and you should have surrendered and now have wasted their time, when in reality they wasted everyone else's.
Champ select is broken though, it's been one of the worst stress points for a lot of players and a lot of terrible in game behavior stems from issues in champ select.
: I'm not sure what happens to TB, but I believe this is the new draft format. Blind is untouched.
It shouldn't effect blind, but at the same time I've been of the opinion for a while now that current TB should replace blind pick entirely. It would help the Q times a lot and not effect the players as much as most people seem to think it would.
: Ask for a new 5v5 map with a 50/50 chance of getting it over Summoner's Rift
I would love to see a few variant maps, even if they are all functionally identical it would be sweet to have some different visuals kicking around.
: Have you bychance watched season 4 LCS? Many pro players got shoved into different roles like crazy. For example, VoyBoy went from a top to a mid in the middle of the tourney xD
I've watched his stream a bit, he flips from mid to top constantly. I don't think there was any discomfort there as he has plenty of practice in both.

The enemy's gate is down. Thank you! I'm very happy with it. Funny story: In soloQ, I once met "Colonel Graff," who was like, "So *you're* the reason why I have this name!" [and not mine].
I really wish I could meet the person who has my name, but it's either a smurf someone is just sitting on or someone who is just super casual and only plays like once a month.
: yeah thats true, but there still isnt a lot of time for bans, i hate when im banning because people take to long to pick, or i cant find the champs in time and then i get yelled at for it, so in the end someone who isnt fast enough to pick out the banned champ is still going to be at fault with something
I'll likely just ban Blitzcrank every time, because he annoys me and he wins games way too easily if the player is even halfway competent.
: Queues will take 2 weeks minimum to find a team as they search for the 100 or so support mains {{item:3070}}
The role break down is a lot closer than most people think it is with slightly lass support mains but only by like 1 or 2 percent. The reason the current team builder has a lack of supports is it's normal/blind pick and a support main can usually get their role in Draft while also being able to have bans and avoid mirror matches. I personally never Queue for support in TB even as a self professed support main because the only reason I go there is to practice my off roles. Then you add in that a lot of people don't select the support option even though they are going to that lane to fill that role, I have seen a lot of bot/tank or bot/mage that fully intend to support they just want the summoner icon or whatever.
: Manly? Taric revels about gems and jewels. I think he's more into shinnies than he is about crushing face.
Have you seen Bloodstone Taric, he can crush faces with the best of them.
