Please number 4. It's really frustrating having a team of all solo queues and then have to go against a premade four + random.

I'm just glad they care about our opinion on this at all

Out of all of those, number 1 I think is the worst. Sure premades and lopsided matches suck, but that kind of game you can at least attempt to carry your team. With good leadership and the right calls, you can still win if you communicate.

Having someone afk though is just an instant loss and there is nothing you can do.

I had a ranked recently where we all talked, picked our roles, had a good team comp, and then our ap mid went afk.

We all said "**** it" and tried anyways, and it ended up being a REALLY close game. In the end, we couldn't pull it off with only 4 versus competent players. I think 1 should be a priority in your list.

ELO margins in ranked games are really bothering me at times. Most of my games, I'm blue team (less favoured) and our team literally has 3 1400s and 2 1300s. However, other team has 5 1450s. Really not my cup of tea. Also, during those games, I lose 13 ELO. However, when I win on blue, I get 12.

Truly, i'd never want to have all free champs in ranked. It would just lead to people joining ranked games to try out a champ they've NEVER played before compared to the people who want to play seriously
