As referenced in the featured discussion on the meta, matchmaking can lead to issues because the meta provides for dominance in specific lanes by specific champion types. It creates a race to call your lane first as soon as you enter the game, or else frustration/queue dodging. I play a lot of different positions, but I know that if I just bought a champion and they get snatched immediately, it's disappointing.

As such, couldn't a possible solution be to select a preferred position (top, mid, adc, support, jungle, any) before searching for a game, that way you would be paired with players who fit the rest of the team's roles?

I understand there would be difficulty in implementing this, especially with people who would purposely disregard the system, but can someone reject this as plausible? I'd love to hear input.
