Trash talk time.

That, or "who's bot?" games.

Or the more positive answer, strategy time.

It also allows time for reconnects/buys etc before the game starts. Same reason creeps don't start insta spawning the moment SR loads.

It gives me enough time to accidentally buy a pair of level one boots, then sell back one quickly and hope no one on my team noticed.

i also stand very close to a female champion on my team and be creepy.

Several reasons that have already been stated:
It also people to decide their item build depending on the competition, develop strategies such as who will take bot, if there will be switches mid game, who will grab mid, if there are questions about builds, to smack talk, etc etc.

Toaster PC's (upgrade at least to a microwave PC, please), inability to leave the computer before queuing rather than afterwards (try option one instead), and stroking egos (screw /all chat).

A slightly more legitimate reason would be purchasing items and changing bot if they picked something horribly gimmicky and got screwed, but that shouldn't really take any longer than twenty or thirty seconds. There's pretty much only two correct choices, at most three for a starting item for most builds without doing something weird.The XP thing could be fixed by setting starting XP to about level 3.75 or so rather than 3. The extra minute is almost entirely unnecessary.

Indeed, those words do not mean the same thing. "I drank wine" and "I slew the orchestra" are also two incongruent phrases.

While we're spouting out random meaningless trivia, Tanzania formed in 1964 from a merger between Tanganyika and Zanzibar.
