The picture has "Player 1" and "Player 2" Will queues remain anonymous as such? Or is that just for testing purposes? In a normal queue will very little staked on it, summoner names would help determine skill level or if you would enjoy playing with the player at all. On the flip side, in a ranked queue such information would quickly turn a losing streak into banishment from ranked at all.

If there is too much power in a ranked solo queue's hands then you will soon find lower "tiered" champions vanishing super quickly.

Riot the new Blizzard? I'm seeing similarities and not in a good way

You'll be going up against whatever strategy the opposing team queued up with.

Awesome really excited about this.

Do have a 1 question though, will this queue be draft mode or blind pick? AKA Will there be a banning phase? Is there a pick order? Or do people pick champs before they get into the lobby?

Thanks, this is wicked!

Wow wait a sec.. if there is no champ select then what keeps everyone from getting the same champion?

This is kind of amazing. I was hoping this type of thing would eventually come out of queuing...and in the exact system I had in mind, too!

I'm looking forward to this being implemented. Thank you very much for doing this.

Actually, I'm starting to change my mind and appreciate the kick feature.





Yes, I'm pretty sure picking Morgana jungle will get me booted a lot...
But do I really want to play with people who want to boot me? How enjoyable was that match going to be anyway?

I'd rather wait for the one team to come along that doesn't consider me a troll than to get matched with 4 people who are mad at me right from the start.

Hell, their loss. I'll gladly face off against the team that booted me and kick their ass.

They queued as a specific champion.

Another problem here is what if you have a team with 4 of your friends and you want to break the meta with 5 mages or duo adc bot or something but that won't be possible once again because your champ pool is limited to what role you pick and you can't have 2 adcs since there has to be a adc and a support. I guess its easier to go into regular que instead of team builder for a premade of 5 ppl but what if its duo que bot double adcs. There lies the problem, Riot. Please I hope you read this

That fact that it says "Marksman" bugs me.
