That's the dumbest decision Riot ever had. Thanks to that I'm always stuck with some *******s picking top first pick and getting countered.
Pick order should be Supp - Jungler - ADC - Mid - Top, to make sure the team gets less counters.

Got some questions recently about whether this applies to normal draft since it's not called out specifically in the original post. We do feel this applies to normal draft as well ranked.

I find it odd that it applies in normal draft, since it is random order. I had a normal draft where one guy was ahead of me, pulled this, so I complied. The very next game I had, he was in last and I was in first

No, normal draft is for me to have fun and try new things out, Ill pick what I want when I play normal.

Yet no one obeys it, and everyone manipulates it to whatever suits their own need in that lobby.

i.e. if the jerk is 1st pick its "pick order", if hes last pick its "call order"

and people such as myself that dont want to engage in that mess everytime we queue? yea we are at the mercy of the toxic ragers that bully/rage/troll champ select. because if you try to reason or protest, it just makes it worse.

Do something about it, its really getting old and its just another fixable issue that (lets be honest) gets ignored by Riot. this thread is meaningless in champ select... its not like you can cite a Red post and the rager/troll/bully will be like "oh really? ok sorry man."

Do something about it, fast. This game has enough problems, fix the ones you can fix before its too late.

And that is why so many normal games suck...

And why would you do a draft if you wanted to try something out??? Just do a blind pick or hell....breaking news......you can do a bot game to experiment.

How does pick vs call work in blind pick normals? There are times where I picked my champion before anyone says anything, and they'll insist that they have the role called despite having already been taken.
