Fixing the ranked elo hell
 
I would love to see some function to the Ranked groups.

Nearly every game I play trying to get out of ELO hell somebody wants to do the same thing as the other person and it ends up being a terrible game unless someone dodges the queue.

Something that might fix it? Here's an idea!

Place the requirement of choosing a position prior to queue. You could have two separate queue systems. One where people chose positions as they enter game (maybe they want to try something other than the meta set up) and one where they pick Top/Mid/Jungle/Carry/Support so there is no more issue with that.

Just an idea.

I think we need a couple thousand more threads about the exact same issue before Riot notices something's up.
I haven't even read or heard of an explanation of why they don't use role selection...

My only guess is that riot doesent want to encourage a permanent meta, they want to spur new ideas and strats with combinations of champs,trees, runes and masteries even positions.

If they choose to have role selection they are definitely saying "this is the fully evolved state of league of legends"

While other similar games have the environment to continue to change and have the intrigue of evolving meta.

Sure the lol meta in its current state is logical, but new items, itemization and such can change things, regardless of what meta sheep cry out.
