Half the reason why ARAM is fun is that you give up control over your picks - So you can just play the game and quit thinking about picks.
A part of that is you typically don't know the real-normal ELO of your teammates, so you can quit thinking about having a good team to rely on and focus on yourself.

Match-making would kill that part - Raging levels per game would increase dramatically, and it would stop being as fun as it should be.
If it doesn't involve matching ELOs, then the game becomes susceptible to absolute newbies entering the game - Nobody wants that.

People would stop playing it in customs, Riot wouldn't remove the queue once in-place, and the community would lose out on total relative "fun".


Matchmaking may sound convenient, but there are subtle consequences that would destroy ARAM's appeal.

ARAM belongs to the community - That's why Proving Grounds is custom-only. Don't let Matchmaking fck it up.


Why do I bother explaining? The noobs don't care about how things actually work.
They just want things as convenient as possible - No matter how much it costs them.



I do not see your logic here, he is petitioning for ARAM to be in matchmaking, Random system and all for one, two you do not know the normal elo of your teammates unless you choose to go to some sort of site and search it up, and three just because people are newbies does not mean they are not entitled to some fun, if it is anything like current matchmaking, it will place high levels with alike, and low levels with alike.

I think this is a great idea, I also think it's only a matter of time before Riot makes it happen. After the Soraka redo of course.
