Summoners!

We've heard your feedback, and as a part of our ongoing commitment to making League of Legends an even more fun and awesome experience for players of all preferences, we are officially introducing Draft Mode into Normal Games! Now you can play like the pros without any impact on your ranked rating!
For those unfamiliar with how Draft Mode works, at champion select, each team has one player that is designated as the captain. The two captains will then have the opportunity to ban champions from play. Following the bans, teams will then take turns selecting the remaining champions, with every choice visible to the opposition so they can counter-pick as they see fit. This type of insight makes for more well-rounded matches and reactive gameplay.
Prefer regular Blind Pick Mode? Not to worry! Blind Pick will still be an option in Normal games.

Best of luck in the draft, summoners!

is this for real? so they tell us that due to loading concerns they cant enable it but then they go ahead and let EUW have it?

what am I missing here? (also how does enabling draft in normals increase the load anyway?)

wtf am I missing here?
It probably makes a bit of sense to test it out on one server and fix issues there and then waterfall implement it.

Or maybe they are doing it, just not yet here since EUW is ahead of us time wise.
