How else do you perceive the words last pick and fill niche?

And I never said last pick doesn't have a say. They can always suggest what is best for them or the team as a whole. This game is about communication, being flexible, and forming strategy. But as it is suggestively stated in the Summoner's Code which I have provided, Pick order remains dominant over Call order. Especially for draft games. If it's blind or custom games, then go ahead with Call order.

Ultimately it's up to the players to figure out what they want to do in champion select, but if people are going to constantly bicker about not getting what they want, then they should fill the niche in their own skill set, and cover all roles.

Please quote the part in the summoner's code where it says pick order>call order. I only found a SUGGESTION saying that if you're last pick, TRY to fill a niche that your team needs. I did not find a part saying "Pick order rules all".

Its says consider the needs of the team. You know what that means? That mean pick order doesnt mean anything. Because its subjective.

Maybe your team needs you to not get hard countered. Maybe your team needs people in roles they are most exprienced in, in order to win.

But hey lets just take 1 sentence out of context.

Supporting Your Team

Second paragraph: Being a good team player begins at champion select. Be open minded when considering the needs of your team. If you’re the last one to pick, try to fill a niche in your team that hasn’t already been filled. If everyone’s picked and something stands out as a deficiency in your team composition, try asking for another player to fill the gap, or change roles to embrace that responsibility yourself. Remember, that by taking on a role you don’t normally play, you’ll learn more about unfamiliar champions and increase your own skill level.

these OTHER parts of the summoners code excerpt you provided contridict pick order > call oder as a hard and fast rule.

Ranked IS pick order, thats where it originated from, and your pick is determined by your points

Sure but if everyone respects and understands each other, people are more likely to get the role they are good at. People being good at their roles mean you have a higher chance of winning.

You want to win right?

The ONLY way that pick order is greater than call is in the LITERAL sense meaning that if someone picks before you, there is nothing you can do to stop them from picking what they want UNLESS they follow the Summoners code and work with your team mates in champ select. I hate all of these stupid debates. Freakin learn to get along.

How about you learn more than 1 role so you don't cripple your team by being a whiney ***** when you have to fight for the lane you want?

Isnt it okay to not know one role? Also..Support is a must. Because theres a really high chance of getting a team that says "anything but support" -.-
