Why am I always last pick in ranked?

How does the system determine pick order? The last ten games I've played (I actually started counting them out) I have been last pick. Not like "Oh my god, I'm ALWAYS last pick!" type "it seems" like I'm always last pick. I have literally paid attention and noted that I am actually the last pick in all of my last 10+ ranked games. I know it's been at least ten games. Also noted, one of my dual partners that I occasionally play with is always first pick when we play together. What algorithm does the system use to determine your pick order? Theoretically there is supposed to be a 20% chance, but I did the math and that would literally be around the odds of winning the lottery. Should I go buy a lottery ticket?

Its not that I'm upset about it (though it is hard to play any position that you get shafted into by other players using pick order instead of call order), its just that I would at least like to know why I'm stuck with last pick other than "random chance."

It is based on your elo. Higher your elo compaired to your team, higher yoru spot.

First pick is always highest elo on the team, second second highest, ect...

If you are duo'ing, then that would explain why you are always last. Your teammate is most likely over a hundred elo over you, and therefor get the first pick while you get last.

Thanks. =)

Its sad to think I do better than most of them. I mainly only lose my games because of **** teammates, which sucks.

You will only win games when you stop blaming your team,but work with them and stay positive and acknowledge your mistakes.
