The last thread was informative, so I'd like to pose a more solid question, would you like Riot to implement a week or so trial splitting the queue into two parts (blind/draft) to collect data?

My theory is that at higher elo where the queue's are already long, everyone would draft anyway to practice for ranked, and lower elos would primarily queue in blind to do whatever they please.

A trial would allow them to test if it would negatively inhibit the community from being able to queue while not permanently crippling the queue.

Results of the last thread showed there was a lot of support for draft, but the majority of the community still wants blind pick around.

I support the idea of a heavily publicized trial run lasting 2 weeks-1 month. If it negatively affects the ability to queue, then so be it, it can be dropped. If it ends up that MORE people play TT, which I suspect will happen, then it can be kept, at least until it becomes a problem.

The way to get Riot to take notice of this is the support tickets. That's how we got this forum!

TT needs draft mode. They say that queue times will increase but that's stupid, because the only reason people don't play TT is because of how unbalanced it is. They need to implement unique stats for champs and a new map passive for TT but let's be frank, that will never happen. I mean it took Riot over 2 years just to implement a capture point map.

err it's never really been about the server, it's been about queue time due to there being so few people playing 3s.

He was saying adding draft normal would cause more people to play, and the notion of not wanting to increase queue times was mislead because draft normals would add new players to the queue to compensate for splitting players in the decision between draft and blind.
