Hey Riot, normal draft is prioritizing premades.

Yegg, am I correct saying that if you are paired up with a 4-man premade and you are not first, you will have the same chance as the other players who are not first pick in being second pick (will you not always be last pick or first pick when paired with 4-man premades)?

Riot announces they have it fixed, will be patched on Darius patch.


Darius patch, turns out it didn't make it in time.


Draven patch comes out, everyone is hopeful that will include it.


Nope, wasn't a server patch or something.


Next patch, it's finally fixed!


Patch is screwed, Riot has to rollback to previous patch.

Yes, you'll have the same chance as the other players to have second pick.

Well at this point, you just gotta pity Riot. I mean, this rollback is real kick to the nuts for the normal draft pick crowd, but being last pick is still better than not playing at all, right? And I think this time you cannot really blame anybody, a patch going catastrophically wrong can happen sometimes, even if you test oh so diligently. Although, we need a surviving Rioter to tell is whether at this point poor Yegg is

a) hopelessly drunk beyond recognition
b) laughing maniacally while toying with a nerf gun way too close to his mouth
c) sitting in fetal position and sobbing silent tears in a Dyrus style pillow?

P.S.: I was going to be really angry if the patch was delayed in Europe because the NA servers had issues for a change. But after seeing this disaster, I think all that's to say is "Thanks for taking one for the team, NA".

Cheers

For a few blissful hours yesterday I could get a top 3 pick. Alas, today it is back to the 5th pick marathon.
