im pretty sure there are gonna be cries for blind pick in ranked after this purely for the sake of not having it yet in ranked while normal does have both modes.


Whoever cries for this has to be stupid.

The point of having normal game draft mode is to be able to practice for the real ranked stuff and to make picking and counterpicking more important. Strategy is more important.

For example: Ryze as a Veigar counterpick, Lee Sin as an Akali counter, etc.

So, that doesn't work either way.

It is a good idea to implement a more complex mode in normals whilst implementing a more luck-based mode in ranked where losses actually matter is herpaderp.

is the time penalty for queue dodgers going to be increased? sometimes there are like 5 dodges in a row. would be even more annoying after 2 mins of picks and bans.

Still, a question to Romulus: Will there be a threshold like the Level 30 for ranked?

I guess, Level 3 players might have problems to play draft mode. Some won't have bought champs and 10 f2p-champs for 10 Palyers with 4 Bans sounds problematic. ^^

Increase the number of free champs?...that might be the easiest solution.

I see 3 possibilities:

a) more f2p-champs (probably not)
b) no bans (hopefully not)
c) you have to own a certain amount of champions (at least 4) to play normal draft (which would be my personal favourite)
