But you guys don't seem to understand : alternative pick is unbalanced, who choose first ? If it's alternative pick with simultaneous pick of 2 opposite players it presents exatly the same problem. What is intersting seeing pro match is too see pro players with their main caracter and this pickmode prevents ppl from specializing in one hero

But as mentioned on the previous page, blind pick allows for so many gimmicky teams that can win against any team without one of a few specific counters, but said counters counter hard. Yes it is fun to build custom teams w/o the opponents seeing it, but that's what Blind Pick in normal mode is for. Draft allows you to attempt to counter your opponents gimmick teams, while preventing the last second picks seen in DotA (and I hear HoN as well).

This game isn't about mastering a single champion, if that's what you want then stick with blind pick. The game is based foremost on teamwork, so being unable or unwilling to play a champion that better fits your team is very selfish.

First pick isn't necessarily an advantage, but neither is it a disadvantage. (For those who don't understand it, it's not I pick one you pick one... it's: Team A picks one, Team B picks two, A two, B two, A two, B one). Since it goes from 1, to 1-2, 3-2, 3-4, 5-4, 5-5, each team is progressively revealing more of their hand, and it alternates who has shown more of their picks. Earlier picks allow you to get the champion(s) you want, but reveal your picks, so they can be potentially countered by the opposing team.

Will there be a way to trade champions with your teammates, after you've chosen them?

Some "gimmicky teams that can win against any team without one of a few specific counters" ? Could you provide some example ? If that's so that mean the game is imbalanced that's not a question of blind pick or not. All the point in blind pick is to build a balanced and polyvalent team. Draftmode just make watching replays ininteresting and if LoL implements this it will be better to go on HoN in the case you seek competition.

so, i posted this before, i'll post it again if it goes missing.


why isnt it up yet?

relationships have been developed.
sufficient pandering on riots part and backpatting on the playerships part has been seen through to fruition.
i'm sure youve seen the spike in RP SALES that you wanted out of this dangling of said carrot.

why isnt it up yet?

we dont need a q+a. post that in your ever-so-useful forum and get on with the show.

ppl dont play this game to be informed of oncoming features, they come here to use them.

would it help if i made a bunch of kissyface comments about how cool everything is? i really hope not.

your budget directors dont have meetings about this months kissyface quotient matching the projected kissyface figures.

get to work and give us something ranked that we can work with.

...if that is even remotely close to your actual intent.

enjoy your new car.
