The same thing that prevents ppl from dodging now, the extremely long dodge timer, it's not like they can just dodge and rejoin q, by the time they q back up again there more than likely going to have the same odds as before and so they'll dodge again. What your talking about would normally require so many dodges that it would take days to get "that match" between all the timers.

For ranked solo/duo, you have to acquire 16 champions. For ranked teams, you're allowed to use free week champions, so you can play in those queues with as few as 6 champions if there isn't any overlap that week.

There is also another potential problem with this. Players need to have access to 16 champs. Who is not to say they can just go buy all the lowest champs for number, and then have a couple of higher champs. That could backfire on everyone imo.

Riot. Let me add on to my previous question. Why did you feel like the ranked system needed a change? What do you feel this will approve? Why do you think some people will dislike this change? Thank you for spending the time for reading this.

It looks to me like it will essentially be the same as before but with certain milestone that once reached you can not fall from without just not playing for a long time.

Won't the Challenger tier be nothing but the same guys for a year?
Players can (and will) fall out of Challenger tier without being inactive. If someone at the top of Diamond proves that they're ready to battle in Challenger tier and then wins the resulting Promotion Series, they'll knock out one of the Challenger tier players. When you're one of the best in the world, you don't get to sit around camping a spot. You have to constantly battle to prove that you belong at the top.

If you queue dodge during a Division or Promotion Series then the series will immediately be canceled and you'll have to re-qualify for the series by winning another game. It might sound harsh, but queue dodge rates in ranked are honestly too high right now, and we're not interested in having some players carefully micromanaging their series matchups at the expense of everyone else's queue times and failed lobbies.
