I had a thought that it would be cool if you could in queue for Summoners Rift as a specific role. In World of Warcraft they have the dungeon finder:
The first screen players see shows the role selection toggles and the type of dungeon desired.
This wouldn't work in LoL.
Sure there's the METAGAEM, but that's just the easiest optimal team comp, there's no hard rule saying it has to be played that way.
