Uh, you know there is trading now, right?

As in, after all the picks, before the game starts they can swap champs. So the person picking last can play the champ that was picked first. Or whatever.

Pretty much solves it.

so you didn't read the post at all but responded after you read the title and thought that was exactly what i said in the page of text.
Solo Q has many many many players who dont talk or respond during champ select or even during the WHOLE GAME, let alone talking to sum1 to pick a champ for you to trade later during those few seconds that people have to pick.

Imma bump this by saying a lot of people who pick last are usually tanks especially if your doing solo queue's. Sure some people like playing the tank but I can't tell you how many times I have come across picking first and picking a GOOD carry DPS and then no tank being played, with me, then regretting not picking a tank.

It's broken because u can't ban enough champs to avoid lopsided teams

even worse when you never pick a jungler then the last guy is like "i can't jungle" and you just facepalm all over the place. The worst is when im premading and we all forget to get a jungle lmao.

Except "personal favorites" of low elo kids are dps carries, and they don't know how to carry. You are much higher elo than I am i guess, talking about 1600-1700s, but in 1200~1400 low elo people think attack speed = dps. It's fair that more experienced people play carries and less experienced people play tank.

yes but why would you assume the low elo players can play a tank effectively? Like today in a normal game(i know its not the same as ranked) i had a morde that said he can't tank but we needed one and he went on to go 1/13 and got a philosiphers stone on morde. And "low elo" is more of a comparison between the players in the team not a set number. like 1500 elo is high if your 1200 elo but 1500 is considered really low if your 1700 elo. And you will see the differences between those players. Especially since to get 1700+ elo you have to consistently dominate your lane + carry your team nearly everygame.
