I think Riot should implement some feature where if all four of the players say a player is afk, and that player has not said anything in chat or picked a champion, that player should be given an automatic q-dodge. Or at least do that when someone hard randoms.

There are clear issues if this was implemented in Norm Draft. In ranked the same issues are still there though more chaotic.

The greatest deterrent to something like this being implemented is the possibility that groups would learn how to force dodges, e.g. four people in the lobby don't like the team comp, or enemy team comp, or don't want to play their role, (Pick any number of reasons) and they could quickly agree to try to get the lobby shut down.



As far as random picking goes. I think Riot could implement a new change, something like their removal of free week champs. Remove the random function, as It has no place in ranked. With the removal of the random pick function, we would need a new auto pick function for AFK or idle people, and, this could be fixed by automatically picking one of the last champions a person played. The player might not follow the meta, but they will more than likely get a hero they know, which helps curb an issue which already exists.
