I'm wondering what people think about this...

I know people are going to instinctively say "you shouldn't leave the lobby" but you know what, this is literally the only protection that a solo que player has against being stuck in a 40 minute long game of suck.

Like I should feel obligated to play with teams of 5x DPS or people who haven't even picked a champion with only 0:05 left on the countdown.

Can we PLEASE get a button to leave the lobby without closing the client and re-logging in? I'm also in favor of adding a "ready" button for each player (or an implied ready once you finish selecting a champion) instead of an arbitrary countdown.

I agree we shouldn't have to be forced with people who can't pick to make a balanced team. However I am thankful we don't actually get leaves for this. I have to close out of about 1/8 of my total solo que games because either I no longer feel like playing or my teams choices which won't change scare me. That along with AFKers in queuing cause me to close that little X a lot.

"i never played morgana, i think shes cool!"
"ok FINE, what you gonna pick x guy?, x guy?"
"no response"

We shouldn't force people to play in a game together. i think the 3 minutes you lose getting back in queue is definitely less costly than getting a lose and 25 wasted minutes playing with veigars who get revive, for example.

If someone picks Heimer in my normal games, I got the right to leave the lobby as I please.

Leaving during pre-game should count as left a game on your record, so that once you've done it a few times i never have to deal with you again.

Tired of 20 min queue, because 1 little kiddie thinks he knows whats up, to sit in another 20 min queue just to get paired with the same kid doing it over and over.

Are we playing the same game even? I have never had a queue longer then probably 2 minutes, solo, pre-made or otherwise.

Players with high ELO rating have long queue times due to the fact that there are few players to choose from their close ELO range.
