Im at 2k elo for dominion right now through blind pick. Is it advisable to queue up for draft at all? Do any high elo players do it, or is it just blind pick (which I actually just hate for many reasons).

There are still high elo draft players like myself, but because of the queue times most people go to blind.

Also, getting dodged is a ***** after waiting 20+ minutes.

I pretty much exclusively play draft (at 2k elo); unfortunately, due to the lack of dodge penalty, there is very little incentive (for the players you will be paired up with) to *not* dodge unfavorable team comps. You will have a queue time of anywhere between 5 and 60 minutes, with an average of close to 30 min (ignore the client's average), so a dodge isn't really an option for you if, say, no one picks a bot.

Sad, too, because blind is a joke of a mode at all but the highest of elo due to the preponderance of steamroller champs.

I get over 10 min Q's in draft and I only have about a +30 win loss so I went to blind. 3-5 min was fine. 10+? Thats half a games time.

Draft should be the only mode serious players Q up for... but it isn't because of the evil Q time in blind =(

They should remove blind pick and force everyone to play draft.

And put in a dodge penalty.

But seriously, it really is the lack of dodge penalty that makes draft near-unplayable at high Elo right now.

Actually, nevermind that, just give us a "whatever" queue that can match into either a blind or draft game.

Haha, I got absolutely ridiculous draft queues for a while so I'm ditching the mode... maybe someday I'll try it again. (Last weekend was some of the WORST games I've played in my entire LoL-career).
