It is ranked.

Basically, each team has a captain that gets to select bans and your team will select champions in an order while being able to see what the enemy is picking.

edit: Oops, was wrong. Derp for me.

It is a normal mode temporarily enabled to compensate for the shutting down of ranked mode, which is traditionally draft pick.

It will be gone by the end of the weekend when they re-enable draft mode for the lvl 30's. For now, give it a whirl and try it out, just know you need 14 champions unlocked (including the free week champs) to play.

Draft Pick is basically a Ranked Game without Elo Loss or Gain. You basically play a regular normal game except before hand 1 team captain can bann 2 champions and another team captain can bann 2 champions After this teams take turns picking champs. In this procedure players can switch champs if both of them own a specific champ Ex: I want to play Fiddlesticks and i am first pick but my teammate wants to play Amumu since Amumu is a more widely picked champ as long as he owns fiddlestick and i own Amumu i will pick amumu and when he gets his turn to pick he will pick Fiddlesticks during the final 20 second countdown we will switch champs so that i have Fiddlesticks and he has Amumu. Thats basically all Draft Pick is, this only lasts while Ranked Servs are down. Try it and Enjoy, Gl and Hf Summoners! -EvilBeanDevil

There will still be Elo gain/loss, only it will be for normal, which means you won't be able to see it.

We tried to play this mode last night and it crashed 3 of the players clients and just gave the other two of us errors.

I hope it is working...I wanted to try it.
