Even if more players started playing simply because of ranked, it would have to be at least double the amount of players that are currently, because a lot are going to continue to play normals (either for "practice" or because their teammates aren't online, or whatever). In fact, if it was anything like SR, high end players will be in normals more often than ranked because they aren't going to risk losing rating when they don't feel like tryharding.

Well the thing about ranked is that you wont start at a high elo, so as long as you dont climb up way too fast compared to others, your queue times shouldnt be insane.

Premade has ****ed up the normal elo of dominion, when i play solo queue the normal wait is arround 5 minutes, when i queue with 3 or 4 of my friends our times go as long as 14 minutes..

People that 5 premade queue got a insanly high elo, cause they stomp almost every not premade as simple as that, Dominion is a very team oriented mode, a premade can easily ROLFStomp 5 solo queue with higher individual skill.

Ranked will fix this giving solo queues and team queues a different elo and a different match making.

My wait times are generally 5 mins to 25 mins, but the average is around 15 mins..I guess its the way it works for whatever my hidden rating is, but still its annoying to have to wait so long.

Ah the dilemma, play blind pick to face fgryze/gaymus/noobrick or play draft only to never actually have a game.

More would come over to play for sure but it would also make the current high level players more active. Everyone wants rank 1 or top 10 or whatever and you have to put your games in to compete. Its hard for people to set goals for themselves in dominion when there's no listing of where you're at and who's ahead of you.

And i'm pretty certain that pro's play 99% ranked, and 1% normals just from watching their streams for the past 6 months... They play ranked because they want to practice with the most competent people possible, not to get rank 1.
