3's used to have draft normals. I understand it was removed because it was splitting the community. You guys have all the metrics, we don't.

Is there a possibility of making it so 3s ONLY has draft normals, and ranked? Even if you're not willing to add solo-queue, I think that would increase the mode's viability.

I say this with full knowledge that I'll never be able to play singed again in 3s, and I love him.

Random casual players won't play ranked 3s as premade teams. I'm sure everyone knows this. So that just leaves normals, and they're burdened with Singed/Darius/Olaf games. Which aren't a lot of fun, and mean that you have to make similar comps to be competitive.

3s games are fun. But as long as its limited to non-draft normals, and ranked-teams, the population is AND WILL REMAIN small.

TLDR - Draft normals pls? Even if it means removing non-draft normals, to avoid splitting the market.

Also - PLEASE let us have soloqueue ranked?

I've been pushing 4-5 ban draft picks for threes and solo ques
(3 is better than none but 4-5 is even better imo) I fully support this. Riot was thinking about/considering adding a large ban draft for aram, so they could easily do it for threes imo. We just need riot to see this. its even better than nerfing the **** out of diana trynd and so on, simply because they are OP in threes but not fives,
Adding draft especially 4-5 bans can help with the singed darius olaf, fiora sion morg, darius yi, diana etc combos

you realize then it'd be impossible for lower level players to play then? lol... you would need to own 6 champions (not counting free week champions) just to be able to play. which would absolutely kill the population

Would it? Riot would know, we wouldn't. Honestly, how much of a continuous influx of new players do they really have? I assume by now they're mostly trying to KEEP the dominant position, rather than grow the playerbase.

It takes no time at all to unlock a half dozen champs. I would guess (made up statistic) 90%+ of all semi-active players have 6 unlocked champs. In non-ranked, you are already allowed to count free-weekers as part of your "stable" to be eligible to play draft.

There is a HUGE population of SR players. We need to convince them to try - and enjoy - 3s. Eliminating some <lvl10s doesn't seem like a huge detriment, considering the upside.
