Pick order > call order. Communication > picking without talking.

you're leaving out the best choice, compromise and communication. If you can talk to your team and figure out what you need you'll be better off than argueing over pick order vs calling.

how about people just learn to play everything, and last pick has to deal with what they get.


this is what i try to do but i get people complaining at me when i'm a higher pick because i didn't try ctrlving and outcalling fifth picks, or double mids, double jungles, or double tops. they ruin it by lying and they hurt the people that are legitimately bad at adc/support/mid/top/jungle that i wouldn't mind playing for - as it is it happens WAY too often- EVERY other game. If fewer people tried enforcing call order I would communicate more with lower picks that legit can't fill the other roles well.

right now they're annoying, never let me play what *I* want, and often troll and berate me. i'd love to see them all go to tribunal but i had this case yesterday:

ya, she isn't going to tribunal because she talks like a robot.

Where's the option for "Communicate with my team because I'm not a selfish jackass" ?

I think it call belongs to the people in the lobby. Personally on the VERY rare occasion that two people insist on the same role, I focus on persuading the one who is lower in the pick order to comprimise. A while back I was just saying "x gets the role, their higher pick" and it wasn't really working. Instead a say something like "hey ,y would you mind jungling because we really need one, itll help us out and if your not a good jungler thats ok, we won't expect in ganks bot" stuff like that when two people say it tends to make the perspm change. Then again people may listen to me more cause I've already take "the support bullet"

However if a group of people get put together where 4 beilve in call order and one in pick order the four should be able to preduade the one with out the one falling make on some rule

If pick order > calling
You can do what ever you want with your 1st or 2nd pick.
Including giving it away.
