This is all that needs to be changed. Allow a selection for lane and role (tank/fighter/mage etc) and then match and choose from their. The game already has a sort system in it by labeling every champion in one of those categories. When you reach the team screen, the only thing left to decide is what champ you want out of the displayed available ones based on your lane and role.

When the Live Beta wraps up, I'll probably spend some time next week discussing why we decided to have players choose Champion, Position and Role first before entering the Team Builder queues.

It's a pretty long and nuanced discussion, so I want to make sure I have time to invest in the discussion.

Thank you so much Riot.
There are teams hard at work on that issue, but myself (or the player behavior team) just aren't the best Rioters to address you. Sorry to hear you've been unable to play the game.

I really liked Team Builder, and I hope it does make a return! I know you guys had some problems about trying to find a way to bring it into Ranked, and while the idea I have may not fix that issue, it may make some progress in that direction.

Have a general vote ban in Team Builder: Once the team is completed, have the Captain propose the three bans they want, and have the other members of the team vote of whether to keep those bans or replace those bans. Then, when searching, that team will not encounter other teams with those banned champions.

It didn't, NA had their 48 hours with it, now it's gone until they either do more beta tests, or release it fully.
