Of course that can happen, but it happens in normal (non-draft) mode as well.

You take Veigar and they are all AD.
You take a CC comp, and they are Irelia, GP, Nocturne, Sivir, etc..
You have Mundo/Soraka and they have MF, Trist and have 4 ignites.
You have Nunu + Katarina, and they have Blitzcrank and Chogath.
You take a poke comp (Nid, Lux, Urgot) and they happen to have Soraka + Taric.
You have three AP casters, and they have 4 silences and a tank with taunt.
You have three AD champs and they happen to have 5 exhausts, Nasus, Rammus, Malphite, Ryze.

Chance happens in all games, ARAM is no different. The percentage of times that the game is lost upon random champion selection is probably somewhere around 5% if that. Sure uneven comps exist, but we're talking unwinnable comps.

This happens in normal mode just as much, but people don't recognize it, because it isn't as blatently obvious.

Is the random enforcable or is it just honor system?

custom games allow you to chose between blind pick, draft mode, and all random. So in aram the game mode is always set to all random, hence there's no need for honor systems. Still a lot of players will dodge if they get a champion they don't like, or if they think the enemy team is to OP.

Yeah that is true but in normal games you at least get a champ you like and know and want to play. Not to mention that some people don't have sets of runes available for every champ that might be selected. Most annoying are Free champs, i got once Lux and had armor pen marks, crit chance blue and crit dmg yellow.

You should edit the main article and write something about:
recall and healing when the inhib is down.
Or what to do if enemy minions slain all your side turrets and attack inhibs
or if all enemy turrets are OK and you don't have any left. (because every turret down gives bonus gold)

Could you people PLEASE stop bumping and +1ing this thread. This is far from -official- and is just giving newcomers a skewed image of All Mid games, with his 'hardcore' designations and whatnot.

Informative guide, I like it. It might also be nice to put it in the new player forums.
