Of course SR 5v5 would still be the most popular cause this is a team game, but I know 1v1 would save me of potentially getting brain aneurism when I'm not in a mood for streak of games full of trolls and leavers.
I think 2v2 would work better just because there's some champions that cant really go 1v1 like putting karma up against jax for example.

A little over two months ago, a number of developers and I participated in Riot’s first ever Thunderdome – a periodic, companywide event aimed at allowing developers to work on whatever they want. My team set out to make the Proving Grounds, our basic tutorial map, playable as full on 5v5. This is something I’ve wanted to do ever since I originally worked on the map, and with the help of some other devs (and a good bit of caffeine) we managed to get everything up and running. Everyone was pretty happy with how the effort turned out, and with the upcoming removal of Winter Summoner’s Rift we saw an opportunity to sneak the new map out by repurposing the same UI hooks.

We've been testing the Proving Grounds for a week or so on the PBE, and now I'm pleased to announce that it is also playable as a custom game on the live servers. While we’ve been playtesting it internally as All Random (and lovin’ it) for quite some time now, all the pick options will be available – Blind Pick, Draft, and All Random – because we’re excited to see what variation you enjoy the most. We’d love to hear any feedback that you may have, as both RiotNome and myself will be providing support post release. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Fellow Rioters who helped me sneak this out:

This map is completely worthless until you start banning people for dodging custom games.

Been waiting for this! Thanks a lot for taking the time to make this non-necessary update in a time where I'm sure you have deadlines to meet. I already profusely praised Nome for his involvement on this but I'd like to extend that to everyone else involved. The map is a ton and a half of fun to play on the PBE (AR or Blind Pick) and I can't wait to test it live!

The healing reduction is necessary though. Healing is extremely powerful in ARAM because you can't go back to the fountain to heal like you can in Summoner's Rift. That's why you always see five Heals in SR ARAM.

Unrelated: Heimerdinger is god tier.

Would it be possible to make champions not die when there is no enemy champion with an assist marker? To prevent getting killed by a tower or minions and no enemy taking credit for the kill.
