the player is given the ability to opt for an advanced queue via checkbox. once checked, the player (or players, if with a group) going to queue specifies the roles he/she (hereafter he) will be fulfilling as well as his desired lane. the player also specifies the roles of his desired teammates, as well as their lanes. since his future pugs have also specified complimentary (in the geometrical sense) information, simple magnet-matchmaking algorithms do the rest.

p.s. please start running passive matchmaking 10-15 seconds after a group room is created, and if necessary, auto-closing rooms that have been completely idle for 45-60 seconds. ideally, this will entirely remove the time currently spent waiting "in queue" for a match, precluding the desire to alt+tab browse.

I have ADHD, too, and alt-tab all the time, but never found it to be anything detrimental. The game automatically takes focus when you find a game, so what's the problem?
