I'm not often posting on the forums, but goddamn. I love the team builder setup and with some more support and tweaking, could result in a VERY solid boost to the negativity that the community puts forward during disagreements during champ select. This mode still allows for non-meta play, and a team captain can pick and choose to accept certain picks, which is nice.

While there might be a long wait time at the present, I've yet to have a wait beyond 3 minutes or so.

Props to Riot, my hopes are that Hexakill and Team Builder remain and move forward.

I just have to say that i am very impressed with this new matchmaking system. I have been an off and on player since basically the start of this game and i am genuinely happy with it I can't wait for a 3's version of this.

I think this is a fantastic idea and one that we've all been waiting for.

The only problem is that the queue is too long during this beta. A better approach would have been to disable draft and blind pick so that we're all forced to use this engine.

I feel this is the direction Riot should go towards. Auto, instalocks are annoying and ruin the game. Having to mash your keyboard during champ selection to get the role you want only to argue who typed it first based on who entered the room first...you get my point...

Lets make this a permanent feature.

if you apply this same idea but with the normal lobby joining ability like normal quing this would be so much faster and so much better so much less trolling for places would be placed

This needs to stay permanently. It is a huge improvement over the typical blind pick where new players just autolock or argue about who should go where...
The queue seemed faster for me, and if you were not happy with your team makeup, the ability to just click "join another team" is perfect.
I hope this stays. Can we vote on this?

I agree this should be a permanent feature, but I disagree it should be the only one, people shouldn't be forced into a new thing like this, only people who want to play it should. I think they did it justice as a beta, by having it alongside everything else, and if they make it a permanent feature I hope they keep it that way.
p.s. if It was the only way to play, the queues would be freaking ridiculous.

If this was implemented, I think it would lower queue time.

Maybe for ranked, Team Builder should just be roles instead of roles + champs. That way, when in a lobby, teams can communicate on comps and bans.
