This is a joke about Soviets and communism if you weren't sure.

Yea I started writing a reply and had to look it up. You got there first. *hat tip*. Well, no hat, or mask. *hair flick* ;D

*Last pick calls mid*

"I'm going to mid, since i feel more confident on it"

*First pick takes it cause first pick and he obviously feels more confident with it then the last pick.*

"**** you ******, take my role i'm going mid anyway, ****er."

how do you have "Com-mune-ik-a-shun" with someone like this.

Fill a niche.

Fill. A. Niche.

This means communicate, no calling, no picking, please learn to communicate and trade around with other players instead of herpderp first pick.

how do you have "Com-mune-ik-a-shun" without like this.
Let's do some roleplay. I will be both first pick and last pick.

Me: "I'm last pick I call mid!"
Me also: "Hey I'd really like to play mid, I'm pretty good at it. Are you good at anything else?"
Me: "No, go Fiddlesticks yourself!"
Me also: "Well ok, I guess I'll play top."
Me also remains wary of other other toxic behaviors that may indicate a pattern, at which point she will politely ask the game to report the person in question for (xyz).

Alternative

Me: "I'm last pick, I call mid!"
Me also: "Hey I'd really like to play mid, I'm pretty good at it. Are you good at anything else?"
Me: "Ok I will jungle!"
Me also: "Cool gg"

This would be fixed so easily if the player experience team would find time to get pre/postgame chat into Tribunal.

Well, for one, you're the one who's lacking communication since you saw someone else ask for the role and then ignored them. Just because they did something wrong doesn't mean you didn't, either.

Also, last pick is a much better pick for mid. Hey, counterpicking, where have you been?

The risk of having an official stance, means that any attempt at decent communication would go by the wayside. For example, a last pick who says "Hey guys, I would really prefer if I got AP mid as it's my best role" might be met with "Screw you! According to Riot I'm first pick so I can play what I want!!"

Since there isn't an official stance, if someone is being rude/unreasonable in chat then it is their own fault (not somewhat justified by Riot).

Being open minded and filling the needed roles for the team is not exclusive to your last pick. The four people before him/her are ALSO supposed to not be selfish pricks.

Yeah this never happens.

Also in regards to your first scenario. Four people have a bad experience cause one person didn't get their way unless someone dodges, this is considered to be a working system at Riot?
