You have to have 16 champions unlocked in order to play ranked
You guys shouldn't be wanting to enter Ranked. Ranked is VERY difficult than you think.
ok so do i need to know people to play with them in ranked?
You can duo queue with someone on your friends list in ranked. No more than one friend, though, unless you have a full team of 5, which enters its own separate queue.
