But, let's say you chat with the team in the lobby and don't like the setup the leader is trying to play--as a solo player you can simply ask the system to find a new group. It's as simple as that.
but what about counter picking, not many people go into ranked just going with 1 champ, many people like to counter pick in draft, how will this affect draft pick?

Question:
Can the team leader leave a slot's Role unspecified, so it can be filled by anybody?

Example:
3-man premade wants to play ADC, supp, and mid and needs random pubs to fill jungle and top. But the premade doesn't care if the jungle/top play tank, fighter, marksman, mage, whatever. Can the team leader leave slots open for "Jungle" and "Top," without specifying a "Role" for them?

Pretty much this. Once it's pushed to ranked queues, and replaces what we have now, the game will be at an all time low.

GG, Riot.

Different teams working on the two features. The holdup for replays at this point is that it requires a massive hardware outlay on Riot's part, and they are behind schedule getting everything set up. So basically, blame the Australians for making more work for Riot.

wtb this system in ranked asap. A lot of my games with a lot of team hostility stem from champ select, mainly because many of these children aren't flexible with lane choice(OMG MID OR FEED, etc).

Players in Team Builder will be able to outline a strategy they are interested in playing, and the system will find teammates that share that vision. Feel like playing a double jungler strategy or want to send 5 players down the mid-lane? No problem. It might take longer to find 4 other players willing to try a crazy strategy but when you do, you'll know the entire team is bought in and you're going to have fun."

Read it, don't think it even vaguely acknowledges the reality of the issue. "It might take longer..." is an understatement of the century. The fact is that SO MANY PEOPLE even now just HATE anyone who tries anything different... but some of them who are close to adults shut up when the realize something is working. (I would know not from being the "something working" but having encountered players doing things and saying "This will never work, this is probably a troll." and learning otherwise. But even that is nothing compared to how some of my teammates have reacted.) In place of 'It Might Take Longer..." if the author was being... entirely honest he or she might have added "It might be utterly impossible, now because everyone has to agree and get their way."

"OMG Riot is enforcing the meta, WAAAAAAAA!"

For Gods sake stop reading a few lines and passing judgment. Read all the ****ing red posts before making yourself look like an narrow minded idiot.

I don't understand, can someone explain to me what this is?
So if you want to play top you just que up for top lane and that's it?
