NOTE- this is for normal, not ranked.

I believe that the lock-in button is completely pointless, and should be removed. Why you ask me? well go play a normal game, and watch the insta locked carry/nuke/squishy scream at you to tank. yes i understand that normal games are for fun, but winning is part of having fun, and 4 ranged carrys, or 4 glass cannon melle all lock in screaming at you to be a tank/jungle/nuke/support 95% of the time doesnt lead to fun, it leads to them raging at you for not tanking/ganking/saving there dumb asses enough. Remove this Anti-fun button.i also notice that insta locks suck hard, never help the team, and try to 1v5 the entire enemy team because they think they are the most pro **** for having karate kennen skin. Thank you, and Happy Holidays!

lol@people throwing around the word anti-fun b/c of zileas' thread

The purpose of the button is so people don't have to wait 1 minute while everyone is ready, but there's always 1 person that doesn't press it anyways, so I guess it doesn't really matter.

lock is pretty pointless, those 60 secs should be talking about who to pick etc. Hell 60 secs isn't anywhere close enough time to switch champs/runes/masteries before it runs out in solo queue

I agree with this somewhat. I think Lock-In should be delayed by 20 seconds at least, so some discussion can be made beforehand.

You should be able to switch after you've "locked in". And then, if everyone on both teams has locked in, the game can start like it would have.
