No, the reason is that back a while ago there was a bug that made it so that there was no dodge penalty for dominion. This made it so that you could sit through all of draft pick and then have some jackass dodge after you just spent 5 minutes getting ready for the game. This made everyone stop playing draft. When they finally fixed the bug, it was too late. Everyone had already quit draft, and no one would go back to it because others hadn't. If we could actually talk to the entire dominion community and get them to queue for draft instead of blind, then that would fix it.
Actually I have an idea. What if for just like a week or two we disabled blind pick completely and had only draft pick as an option (the exception being low levels and players without enough champs, they can still have blind. The ones without enough champs can get queued with low levels since they are probably new 30s anyways).
This would make it so that draft would be forceably revived, and then when they brought back blind, people would hopefully still queue for draft.
Thoughts on this?
