I'm sorry if this is mentioned in here (I'm not reading 300+ pages) but is it possible to maybe do some R&D on a queue system that enlists roles the player is to willing play? (for solo/duo only, as a full pre-made will have all bases already covered)

Like when you queue up, have an extra option with radio buttons for:
ADC
Support
Mid
Top
Jungle
(this could be difficult as the meta's change?)

That way the teams are a bit less hectic and some organization is already established? While every one should be able to play any role, not everyone is good at all of them. I can jungle, but I'm not the best, so I would check all roles but that one as I can play all of the others well.

Just an idea Riot, I don't expect a whole lot as I'm sure it could prove a complicated mechanic, but yea, ideas are yummy right?

TMaccius and I just had 4 straight losses, all of which were really one-sided games. (Maybe one was close?)

Besides all the other stuff listed, I find honors a big problem.

Half the time people with ribbons don't even show what they're meant to represent. Which is really sad meaning they don't even bother, they only wanted the honors.

I agree with you fore sure!
My first few matches in season three were pure pain, pure, unadulterated pain D:
(thought season two was perfectly fine)
But yes, its rather unsettling how horrible placement matches can go when you first do rank after hitting lvl 30 or a reset. Getting a team that is actually serious and or has a KDA that is not negative is about as random as closing your eyes, and throwing a rock back wards hoping to hit bucket ontop of the house.
(made that myself!)
If i could, i would wish my first 10 placement matches for season 3 wouldn't count =/

I agree 100%, I honestly have wanted to try ranked out for season three, but I've wanted to wait as long as possible to get at least 3 maxed out rune pages as well as much exp as possible on each role. Very nervous about trying it because being placed in bronze 5 due to bad luck or inexperience would ruin league ranked for me and I'd rather stop playing/make a new account than seeing "Hola, me llamo es Pablo (My name is Pablo. Me voy a encerrar Mordekaiser (I am going to lock in Mordekaiser). Mordekaiser es numero uno (Mordekaiser is number one)! HUEHUEHUEHUEHUEHUE.

Yes, I do know a little bit of (broken) spanish. No, am I not racist towards those who speak spanish, it just frustrates me when I get people who I can't communicate with in text because they don't speak english. Generally, this negatively impacts the game and something I would like to see changed ASAP.

What we need is an effective way to control Champ Selection trolls.

Here's my thread on it: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2833452

At default it will be at 5 and it will be left there if nothing is selected.

then if everyone picks a very low rating because they all think someone is trolling or being a jerk on picks and it will be a bad game, and the average on 50 total is extremely low.The game is auto-dodged!

there probleme solved, go riot implement this!

EDIT: for refusing to cooperate dodge penalty for the whole ally team! maybe half the regular dodge penalty tough.

I will go ahead and quote myself yet again cause i think i just found the solution to the problem here
Someone would pick 10 cause they think they can carry trolls and stuborn people.
the idea might need a few tweaks.

I made a new thread about how easy it is to circumvent the whole matchmaking process.

It seems to be permitted as of now. Why is this allowed?

Can we have a better matchmaking system for normals?

Whenever i feel like i wanna play a normal, my MMR is lower than ranked (was platinum S2) and my top was Gold 1 (S3) and i get paired sometimes with unranked, silver or bronze and sometimes its platinum or diamond.

Games are extremely boring and i rather read a book if im in solo queue than playing in normals if i have to .
