How would everyone feel if Riot would make you chose your lane and/or role before you entered into champion selection? Would that eliminate some of the arguing for who called what first and eliminate some of the bad play if a player does not play a certain role/lane.
Let me know your thoughts??

A touch of Search Fu might help...
Anyways, this has been proposed a million times already. Refer to that thread for more info.

The idea has its ups and down though...

On one hand I think it would eliminate a lot of the trolling (eg. MID OR FEED) involved with ranked. It worked in WoW and it would work here. You'd queue up and select a role, and when matchmaking finds 5 different roles on each team then you start.

On the other hand, I think the downsides would be an increased wait time for games, and an increased deviation between popular roles such as mid/adc and less popular roles such as jungle/support. If you queue'd for a popular role, your wait time would be longer than if you queue'd for the least popular (probably support) in which it would probably be instant.

Idk, it has it's ups and downs but what doesn't. I wouldn't mind if Riot at least tried this idea out, if only for a little bit. Or maybe a beta version.

Trolls are gonna troll, that's what they do. Under that system, what stops someone from taking a role and not taking a champion that typically fills that role?

What stops someone from doing that under the current system?

Nothing, but we don't have significantly longer queue times in this one because we don't have nobody queuing up as support.
