Thanks for not being apathetic like me and actually recording this Pacific.

I can almost guarantee something in the system is broken and that is prioritizing parties as well based on my own experience.

It does prioritize premades in normal draft.

Yeah, it always favours premades. Whenever I am in a duo, there is always a group of three above us, whenever in a trio, we are always on top.

Bumping this thread for truth. Draft normals HIGHLY prioritize premades

It doesn't prioritize premades but it does put them all into one spot together. For example if you are a group of 3 you will either be the top 3, the middle 3, or the bottom 3. I think it should split them and do all five randomly personally.

I usually que in normal draft with two other people and we are 1st 2nd 3rd almost all the time. I don't usually que with 2 in normal draft, but it seems to match up with what the OP is saying.

I also kept a tally of placement over the course of a week or two.

Solo: 5-5-5-3-5-4-5-5-4-5-5-4-4-5-5-5-4-4-5-5-5-5-5-5-5 (25 games)

1: 0% (0/25)
2: 0% (0/25)
3: 4% (1/25)
4: 24% (6/25)
5: 72% (18/25)

Duo: Also 25 games.

1,2: 48% (12/25)
2,3: 0% (0/25)
3,4: 20% (5/25) <- 1,2 are always another duo queue
4,5: 32% (8/25) <- 1,2,3 are always a triple queue


Note: If you triple queue or quadra queue, you ALWAYS get 1,2,3 or 1,2,3,4.

The recurring nature that you experience doesn't prove or disprove anything (sample set size by player and number of game.) The lack of counter-evidence is just an appeal to ignorance. That being said, I see Phreak is looking into, so we should await his response before concluding anything.
