What if you are in draft mode, and when you see your enemy pick you want to change your role based on that? What will become of counterpicking?

Wow, that's a really sleek system you're going to implement. I remember reading about the possibility of things like this and wasn't sure how a thing like that could be implemented, but from the looks of it you've got a great idea rolling. I look forward to seeing how it progresses. Great job =D

I am NOT a fan of this. I (like many others) are not only malleable to what we want to play, but don't really make that decision until champ select. This is just not going to end well.

That, and people may say one role, but lock into another, creating MORE conflict than alleviating.
Except you can still choose regular old Blind Pick

How does it work though? You select Nautilus support and queue up, and then you get drafted onto a team looking for a support? What if they don't want Nautilus support, can they kick you? What if they want their support paired with an AP carry, can you opt out?

Do some players queue as a "team captain" and set up the roles they want? Is there a lobby where their games are viewable? Or will I set in queue forever waiting for my double AP Bot lane curveball comp to come to fruition, meanwhile absolutely no one is queueing up for bot lane AP? (thereby artificially enforcing the meta since no one will reliably queue for wacky stuff blindly--if no one can see your game and your desires, they won't know)

I'm intrigued by this idea but left basically tantalized by this reveal, since it didn't go into the inner workings of the feature much at all. The picture seems to indicate that 1top 1mid 1jungle 2bot is standard. But that's not necessarily going to be true forever. Does the supposed team leader change that as well?

Finally, been waiting for this forever. Now I don't have to play several games before I can play my desired role especially when I have limited time. Please roll out this feature to live as soon as possible.

God no. Blind pick is scum, and I only do it in 5 man.

As long as this isn't integrated into ranked or draft, I'll be fine.

Its not like everybody who queues up enters in their team comp strategy.
Well, hopefully this will become clear soon, but if it doesn't work the way I said, then there really is no "buy-in" from the team. Only having one person decide the comp and everyone else get automatically shoved into it creates its own problems. You might queue for mage mid only to discover that you're in a team of mage/mid assassin/mid fighter/mid support/jungle and support/top, which is probably not what you intended to queue up for.
