But, a small % of players are getting queue times more than 10 minutes. We're investigating to see if there's something weird in the matchmaking, or what is in common with these special cases.
I think a great idea is whenever there are two teams made like a group who is top mid and support and another team running that is adc and jungle and they are searching for one another you could just throw the teams together as a bundle and see if they accept each other. If they don't then they just separate again. Someone else said something similar and I think it's a great idea. I feel like it will cut queues by a lot.

I really liked the team builder. I hope it replaces blind pick in the future.

I really hope that team builder is here to stay. i am more than willing to put up with longer wait times if it means that I do not have to argue with others about what role I should play. Thank you Riot!

I very much enjoyed the beta for this and hope it stays. There were a few small niches, but thats to be expected. I noticed a large problem with waiting close to 20 minutes just for a support. I think something to maybe fix that is provide a SMALL ip boost to people q'ing for support. It would give support players or just any player really a little extra incentive to play that role. Other then that the games were much more challenging which may be due to the fact that both teams are ACTUALLY working together instead of against themselves. It really made a platform for a much smoother and more fun league experience. I really hope riot decides to keep this mode.

The only thing I dislike about team builder is that you have to choose your champion beforehand. That completely gets rid of being able to counter another player.

All you had to do is change the support (B*tch) role to something else. You went out and spend our tax donations and made this useless system where nobody can ever find a support. I spent 15 minutes trying to get in my first game. This is ridiculous.

Thank you so much Riot.

Sounds great, if it works as planned this should definitely be implemented permanently. When everyone instalocks, no one does.

We definitely want to make it easier to "requeue" with your new found friends after a Team Builder game. We have a few ideas in mind, but it just didn't make it in for the Live Beta.
