This is a problem, in particularly with ranked, and this procedure should probably be implemented only in ranked.

Foreground:

So basically when you get into a lobby in ranked, where the two teams have a captain and each captain choose the 3 bans, its the stage where teams usually communicate what roles/lanes people would like to play. Now the problem is that sometimes people stay quiet the whole way through and with the lack of communication, they set themselves and their team for failure. People who call roles or so at least tell their team what places they can be in, rather than staying silent and keeping your team guessing.

Solution:

I propose that in order to counter this problem, every player must type at least once. This will reduce the amount of silence and encourage players to talk more in champion select. There can be ways to bypass this system such as typing nonsense, but it gives an indication that they are there and perhaps not taking it serious.

If players fail to type something, the game will treat them as afk and force a dodge upon them, like they would have dodged intentionally and would suffer same consequences as a dodger such as a timeout for queue, and/or LP loss.

Problems:

Players may need to be aware of this and cannot occur only during articles and news if this would be implemented. There should be a clear message stating that if the player does not communicate something at least to the team, that they will be kicked out of the game and forced to dodge.

Players without keyboards may also run into problems, but the solution to that is:
-This would only be implemented in Ranked, so people who play 1 handed (if you know what I mean) usually play bots / normals would be unaffected.
-This would not affect 1 handed players as they can use their hand to type something
-Players who only use 1 hand (mouse) to play the game in ranked already set their team for failure and 1 hand is incapable of producing the required movements that this game needs to make a player efficient

Please a Red put your input into this topic, thanks!

Thanks for reading and I would like to hear your input

Well rather have people calling than being silent and not talking
