Team builder should be available for Co-op vs Ai too

team builder is a decent idea.....queue times too long, and URF is still more fun.


Its funny how something originating as a joke turns out to be so popular, yet this **** theyve been developing is face planting....

I think they took away urf to try and bring focus to team builder....what a joke

I don't see the need for that because the bots are pushovers anyways.

If you're top lane, you can just go around the corner of your top jungle - the bots will follow you and die to the tower.
If you play without any mid lane at all, the jungler can just occasionally come mid and clear all the creeps - the bots early on won't shove at all, just last hit.

You can literally play anything you want and can't lose.

There also is literally no waiting in Team Builder as a support.
Also people are generally a bit more friendly because you don't have the "me mid!" "no, me!" "then duo mid, or you dodge!" "/all push mid, this is over since minute one, I'm afk" nonsense.
Also you can just leave a lobby if you think the team comp won't work out.
This is why I haven't played a single normal blind pick since the TB is available as a support/jungle main. The athmosphere is generally more enjoyable and I'm thinking "well, if I play support in TB, I can reduce the wait time of 4 other guys a bit. So - why not?"

I think team builder is a great idea. It removes a ton of toxicity because that's usually caused by position choices and people forced to play positions they don't do well and being raged at for doing poorly.

It also allows the captain to construct a team around the champ he wants to play. If he wants to go tank middle he can restrict the other lanes to focus on damage. If he wants to go solo Cait top, he can ensure he has tank jungle and ap mid/support to give a better damage mix. He can even go duo jung, duo mid. or something if he wants to set it up that way.

The only thing it fails at is banning, but that might restrict the number of players too much. In fact, I think Riot has so many champs now that they should remove banning altogether because it just wastes time.

Blind pick, of course, needs to go now that team builder can fill that niche.

I think it'd also be nice if he could make the game a 6 or 4 man game too.

I think team builder is a great idea in theory but the wait times on lanes like mid and top are absolutely brutal. 25+ minutes just to get into a game is a huge waste of my time, must fix.

Will team builder ever count towards your normal ranking?
