Been waiting 18 minutes for a jungle and AD and nothing so far. Just me, a top, and support.

Just played a game with two Dravens, so yes, it's possible.

Second time I get put against diamond players with my team being bronze like myself. :/ Not fun at all when you get pounded the whole game.

Team Builder matchmaking does seed from Normal MMR, but your problem isn't necessarily with Team Builder.

Team Builder does not take into account Ranked statistics, so if you're facing Diamond players, it could be because that team doesn't play Normals often and are trying Team Builder out for the first time. As players play more Team Builder games, issues like these will smooth out over time.

So here are some suggestions I came up with...
-maybe we could have a button where you have a preference to find someone willing to leash a certain buff or invade?
-maybe a type of fill option for people who are willing to play any or some of the champs/roles
-and maybe an option to choose what type of champions/roles you want on your team?

For my first 100 or so games of League, I literally strictly played AP mid, and if this system were in place at the time, I probably would only play that role. It is a system that DISCOURAGES the learning and application of all roles, and expansive knowledge of the game. I still suck, but I am beginning to embrace the struggle that is the ranked ladder, and the essence of this struggle is being able to do whatever is necessary (including playing different roles) for the good of the team. This system is great and has its uses but should never be implemented in a ranked queue, just my two cents.
Team Builder was specifically designed as a new take on the core Champion Select experience. The system does not account for drafting and counterpicking, which we agree is integral to the competitive League of Legends experience.

If we were to build a Team Builder queue for Ranked Modes, it'd probably look completely different and we'd just incorporate the lessons that worked from Normal Team Builder. We'd also design the system from the ground up with drafting and counterpicking in mind.
