Bc Riot has officially abandoned TT. Their official policy is just to leave it like it is

How are posts like this remotely helpful? When Riot ignores the entire forum for MONTHS, then one helpful rioter actually comes in and makes a half-dozen posts, is it really productive to just slam on Riot in response?

Hes not actually talking about what Riot is doing with TT or giving us new information. He is just telling us what we already knew

If you're looking for a way to ban in the meantime, however, I highly recommend trying ranked teams once you're level 30. My team and I have been doing it a lot and really enjoy it!
But if you added draft some people might return to TT... I played it more before SR got draft. but after it got draft I found I liked playing draft a lot more and as such don't really play TT because it's either blind or ranked... Dominion has somewhat longer queues for it's draft and I haven't heard about that being considered a problem.

Thanks GOD!! Finally we havesome Red on TT forum. I am thinking that if you first introduce the normal draft then look at the result but not predicting that there are not enough player for this. Riot should have pro-active.

The main problem also make TT is low player base is the imbalance between blue and purple laser range, this is a hung thing to deter people playing TT. Dont just saying there are not enough player, as a company you are the one to make the player come back to TT and new player.

I don't think Treeline will ever draw a significant number of players until draft mode is released.
People just get way too turned-off of the map after fighting the same champs over and over again.

Not a huge deal, but I feel like getting more people into TT will do more in the long run. Doed that make sense?
Any plans to actually work on TT then? It has some pretty glaring problems, and the obvious lack of support by Riot for TT makes it rough to attract new players to it.

Thanks for posting in the TT forums Taco Storm, it really is nice to see a red presence here.

My friends and I used to play TT exclusively but have since moved on to dominion and the occasional SR. This was right around the time the jungle was remade in 5v5 and we felt like there might finally be some changes to TT in the works. When those never materialized we sort of gave up on the game mode because of a general feeling that concerns were never going to be addressed. I think if Riot spent a bit of time tuning up the jungle and each side's base it would do a lot to bring more people back to 3v3. I know we would start playing again.

yeah if you divide the current number of TT players between two queues the queues would be long, but you aren't factoring in the new interest and increased number of players that would play the map with the introduction of a draft mode
RELEASE DRAFT MODE NOW
You seem very sure that the only thing standing between TT and greatly increased popularity is Draft Mode.

What happened to the balance changes that were going to happen based on lessons learnt from Dominion? More people would play it if it wasn't so disgustingly unbalanced.
