@Everyone ever: You need to stop queuing for normals and queue for draft instead.

I think it's fine if the super high elo players don't do this. It's not fair for them to wait 12 hours to play one game.

For the lower elo players, this shouldn't be a problem other than our queue times is several times longer.

I think the important thing is that we continue to do this for awhile and try to advertise it a little more. The reason is, something like Dominion Draft Day failed because one day of very active draft play does nothing. Several days of some draft days will eventually pile on and become a lot of draft games.

I'd kill for a 2 hour draft queue. Last time I tried it my queue was 8 hours and resulted in a queue dodge when I banned Kassadin.

My gaming partner said he actually got into a draft match in only around 5 min on the weekend. Was it a fluke or is your campaign working? Hmmm...

Anyway, he said it was well worth the extra few minutes not having to deal with Kass's and Nid Spears derping all over the place.

Draft queue takes too damn long. The solution to OP champions is to nerf them, not to presume that everyone can pile into Draft and just ban them all day. Some people play Blind because they don't own enough champions, some people play it because they prefer the style, and some people face ungodly queue timers even once we get a sizable draft population because the Dominion population is so low.

I don't play Draft because the last time I did it I waited 74 minutes just for a dodge when Lulu was banned. No, thanks.

The wait hasn't been bad actually. Most enjoyable games I've had in a long while, while queuing.

Will this then have the effect of making the normal queues longer effectively scaring away more numbers from Dom and giving Riot even more "evidence" that there's no need for ranked?

As much as I hate SR (10 minutes of boring minion killing at the start + possible hour long matches) I'm considering playing it for ranked as at least there's more of a purpose behind ranked games, something to work for :/

Hey if you make it so the ranked levels give you a separate forum badge as well it'll def bring in more SR peeps!

I keep wondering if this wont be the honest solution to the draft is dead issue. A big, community wide pledge to only queue for draft. As long as people do it, I don't see why it shouldn't work.
