Riot, why can't we queue as a specific role?
I was just wondering...it would make a lot sense and fix a lot of problems during the champion selection phase. I was thinking it could be like the WoW queue for dungeons and raids, except it would probably work even better in LoL...

Agree or queue for a lane so it doesn't mess with meta.

MrGarthonk 12-09-2012 03:14 AM

Queue time for ADC, Top, or Mid: 30mins

Queue time for Jungler: 15mins

Queue time for Support: 5sec

Hm. Bump because it seems like an awesome idea. But wouldn't that take countering out of ranked? They pick Diana mid, you don't have morde. Can you trade lane you queued up for?

Because you aren't locked into the meta, you can do things differently as long as your team agrees.

There wouldn't be enough supports and junglers and tanks to go around because everyone wants to play Top or Mid.

Go play WoW and tell me how that works.
You the the queue time for your top and mid?
Oh sure jungle and support will have zero queue time, but your solo lanes are going to be waiting alll day~

Plus, it forces a meta.

I'd like this even though queing for more popular lane spots would mean longer que times. Also you could still trade in que if you think someone's better

It would stop the meta from evolving(if it ever does) into something different. It will mean that Riot endorses the current meta and given the community, will stiffle possible new ways of playing.

Do people actually think about the implications of such a feature or are they just like "HURR I'M A GENIUS, ROIT HIRE ME PLS"?

The Rotting Poet 12-09-2012 03:17 AM

Don't think this would work out too well...certain roles tend to be favored more often (mid) than others (support), so I think that allowing this functionality would cause some imbalance.
