The lack of a "swap champion" button is depressing

Would make solo (even team) queueing at any rating more enjoyable.


Please implement this feature.

Let me guess: top men are on it? Yeah, we've heard that one before.

They have Guinsoo on it, I think, either that the platform engineers have a choice of working on swaps or feeding him. Either way it will get done fast

thank god

but there's still an issue of swapping heroes players don't own to a player who does own it.

Has there been any riot posts about this?

An example would be if i wanted to give my 5th summoner shen because he loves playing shen while i primarily play carry, however i do not have shen unlocked

I don't think you'll be able to pick a champ if you don't have them owned. I also don't know how they'll deal with picking a champ you own and swapping to someone who doesn't own it.

That's probably going to be a real pain buying top tier heroes just for the ability to swap to your teammates.

Alright well ty for the quick reply.

I, for one, believe that swaps will work by only allowing them to be done between players who own both champs in question. If it's like that, though, then I do hope more time is added to draft picking as it'll be needed to plan out swaps, especially for ensuring that the guy further down the list has the champ that the current picker would want.

I severely prefer the idea of being able to actively switch pick order. That way there is no issue of not having a champ but wanting someone to pick it for you, etc etc.

Just let anyone who has not yet picked be able to slide positions with a voluntary button click from both players. Simple, solved.

It doesn't make sense to limit people on making intelligent team choices by the champions they do or don't own. Gimping people who don't actively buy champions. Also situations will arise wherein one player says "PICK X FOR ME!" then they do not swap, and someone is left with a champion they do not want.

All around, it is asking for problems, whereas voluntarily switching your pick order leaves you only with the champion YOU selected, leaves little room for being in a slot you didn't want, and even if you do it isn't the end of the world not being able to pick whenever you had wanted to.

Instead of hijacking thread, I just made a new one.
