Have you even played ARAM? Duo won't make about an ounce of difference...and most custom ARAM games are done with pre-arranged teams and friends invited, it's part of the fun. The game mode is about fun, and though it's still competitive, there is less emphasis on that. The matchmaking would be about making it easier to get into the fight and putting a penalty on dodging.

Half the reason why ARAM is fun is that you give up control over your picks - So you can just play the game and quit thinking about picks.
A part of that is you typically don't know the real-normal ELO of your teammates, so you can quit thinking about having a good team to rely on and focus on yourself.

Match-making would kill that part - Raging levels per game would increase dramatically, and it would stop being as fun as it should be.
If it doesn't involve matching ELOs, then the game becomes susceptible to absolute newbies entering the game - Nobody wants that.

People would stop playing it in customs, Riot wouldn't remove the queue once in-place, and the community would lose out on total relative "fun".


Matchmaking may sound convenient, but there are subtle consequences that would destroy ARAM's appeal.

ARAM belongs to the community - That's why Proving Grounds is custom-only. Don't let Matchmaking fck it up.


Why do I bother explaining? The noobs don't care about how things actually work.
They just want things as convenient as possible - No matter how much it costs them.
I wouldn't bother explaining anymore either because those explanations were retarded..
