I call what I prefer, but I still take what roles are needed. I just ask that the person says if they are going to pick over me because they are before me. It makes me mad a little.

At the start of every queue, before anybody says anything (ban phase), simply copy and paste the following sentence instantly:

I don't "call" my lane, I pick when it's my turn. I can clearly type faster than you anyway.

Done. Nobody argues with you.

Tested proven.


You underestimate the power of this community. Try that in games I have, and kids are still gonna pick AP mid first pick and rage when they get destroyed by a counterpick, or players will pick Riven or Malphite to "counter" Teemo top for some God-awful reason.

If I'm last pick and we need a support, then I'll support. It's when you have 2 "callers" that you have a problem. 1 can be solved but if you have 2 you are going to lose anyway and might as well dodge.

I go into a lobby and call mid or adc, but specify I prefer mid. Whether I'm in Normal Draft or Ranked, you know what the response I get is? "You aren't first pick, you clearly suck. I'm mid" and they autolock Karthus, then wonder why LB/Fizz/Veigar on the enemy team completely rapes them in the ****. I have a spot I'm comfortable with, but I guess other players have more luck than I do in lobbies. All I get in lobbies are either kids like what I just described, or people who are picks below you and they autolock a champ for your lane without saying a word. This community is deplorable when it comes to stuff like thinking.

Wrong. It's a kingdom of "mid/top/jungle and/or I feed"
