Yeah, what exactly is the reasoning behind not giving us draft 3s? There's really no reason not to, I don't think it would affect anyone anywhere negatively. I think it should have been done years ago.

Agreed.
I also think this would be much healthier for the new 3v3's evolution... you tend to always get the same Darius/Lee/Jax/Teemo/Singed stuff every single game. Of course, you can counter each of them, but you'd have to know which one of these you have to oppose, which you don't.
Therefore you can't counterpick or even try new stuff; if you try to, most of the times you'll just get facerolled.
If it wasn't for the bans and champion limitations, heck, you could remove blind pick at all. (But new players don't have 16 champions available, so I guess blind pick has to stay. :P)

It's far easier to let the community evolve, if you don't limit progress to ranked queues only.

It's the same for Dominion btw, except that it has a draft queue, but no one plays it, cause you can't see elo. And since there's no ranked queue either, most people won't try to evolve, since the only competitive options they have are the weekly torunaments of DominateDominion...
Dominion's missing a (solo + team) ranked queue, while 3's is missing a more competitive option besides of ranked where you can try and practise stuff, without the fear of losing elo.
I know you can still open a new team over and over again, but then again, you still need 2 premade-buddies to play with.
