While it's possible that your sample is too small, or that it's just that people tend to play premades in normal draft, I'll look into it!

I play solo normal draft every day and I end up in the last two slots 9/10 times. I am getting really tired of supporting bc I'm always last.

TL; DR - Out of 51 solo normal draft queue games I was FP only 2 times. In comparison I was 4th or Last pick 43 times or 84% of the time.

Phreak, I was going to QQ about this but OP has beat me to the punch. In a sample size of 51 games, you can see where I fell out in the pick order when I solo queued normal draft.


As a breakdown by % that is:
First: 4%
Second: 2%
Third: 10%
Fourth: 31%
Last: 53%

And this is why I believe that normal draft prioritizes pre-mades in the pick order:

Raw data:
1) Last
2) Last
3) Fourth
4) Fourth
5) Last
6) Last
7) Fourth
8) First
9) Last
10) Last
11) Third
12) Third
13) Fourth
14) Last
15) Last

17) Third
18) Last
