Awsome post.

I don't think trading will solve it currently, as there is a pretty high chance that players will not have all the correct heroes unlocked.

Now what I'm NOT cool with is having the lowest elo player pick last. Sure you don't want your low elo player playing a good champion poorly when a higher elo player could have used that champion but that's rarely ever the case. By the last 2-3 picks your (hopefully) going to be picking to balance out your team comp.

And that's the kicker right there. You get the first 2-3 players(highest elo) picking their favorite champions and then these lower elo players whom you should assume aren't as good and aren't nearly as good at playing multiple champions picking last. What you end up with is the low elo player playing a champion their not comfortable with but he's going to try to balance the team comp because he wants to win and its a ranked game.

But then when the last pick ashe goes and feeds all game, doesn't know how to build the champion properly and doesn't know the full utility of hawkshot and her ulti then you end up with a 1/10 ashe that fed all game making the game very unfun due to this player (although trying their hardest) feeding and makes everyone on the team just get frustrated with the game and the player.

YES YES....I know there is trading now and you can also communicate with your team but PvP.net is a complete let down so any hopes on communicating is out the window. Half the players can't use their chat and the other half are sadly not going to trust their teammate to pick their champion for them to trade later. Maybe when the game starts working it might make sense to spend time on new features that rely on the broken ass PvP.net

My Solution:
Have the highest elo/team leader get bans and first(or second) pick. Then have the rest of the 4 teammates be organized from lowest elo to highest elo. So instead of having This setup of elo's:

1700 elo
1600 elo
1500 elo
1400 elo
1300 elo

You would then end up with:

1700 elo
1300 elo
1400 elo
1500 elo
1600 elo

Which in my opinion is alot more balanced for those matches that duo queuing or lack of players cause a huge fluctuation in elo's and give those teams that have a wider spectrum of elo's a chance against teams that have a more averaged elo team where they have no one playing poorly and losing the game due to losing their lane.
