@ Riot's team for this mode...

Really well done! Love the look and feel of the whole system, just nailed the aesthetics.

Grand slam in my book.

Okay, played a few games using this TB. Here are my initial thoughts:

1) The music and sound effects stood out immediately. Please pass my props to the audio team on this. It makes you feel like you're queuing for something EPIC.

2) The queue time is significantly longer than a blind pick, which I expected. It gives me options, though. If I really just want to play a game of League RITE NOWH, then I can queue for blind pick or draft. But if I really want to play my champion in my specific role, then I can wait a bit longer and get that guaranteed.

3) I like the idea of being able to create games and control them, or go in and join games. You mentioned the influx of game creators (Lyte mentioned this, I believe) which makes sense. I don't know if it will balance out later, but my hypothesis is that there will still be a disproportionate number of game creators to game joiners (too many chiefs, not enough indians).

4) Overall, I really enjoy this game mode. It adds more to the game in an efficient manner.

The queue times are extremely long, usually 3 minutes for me .. just to go into a lobby and end up not liking the room.~.~
Meanwhile it says that it's expected to be "very short"

While we are waiting... Can we use the minimap to strategize, point out positions, flanks, maybe invades. I see so much potential.

I have a bug to report. After my game finished it said "Lobby has been destroyed" and now my screens all black .-.

I think Team Builder should replace Blind Pick. Team builder makes more sense and it's easier for players to be compatible and get along rather than shouting and fighting over who called first.

Question for the team: I keep getting my League icon on my taskbar popping up and flashing yellow like I've got a message while I'm in a Team Builder queue, but there's no message or invite or anything. Is this a bug?

Im just kind of sad how ADC And Support seem to be the least played picks they want
