the reasons for this thinking can be found on this thread.

this new thread is just to create a poll, to get an idea of how many people want it.

i'll repost the main topic, but if you use the link provided you can also read the discussion about what i posted. Here's what i said.

my request is a simple one and i will give reasons following.

i request that there be 2 seperate options when qing for ranked and normal.

SOLO ONLY Q
SOLO/DUO Q

REASONS WHY THERE SHOULD BE SEPERATE.

1. when playing with duo q you are forced to play with people far above and below your elo making games not very even and often causes 1-2 feeders (weather it be the duo q feeding or the duo q dominating some poor sap who got laned against a plat duoing with a bronze smurf played by a second plat player)

2. duo q's often will give up far easier and when they do it's 2 ppl giving up and not 1. (completely ruins a game)

3. duo q's often cause fights (duo q's have the tendency to be able to do nothing wrong, and pick a fight with other members of the team then threaten "enjoy your double report" now not only does a duo q have more power to influence a win/loss they also have more reporting power. not fair at all

4 duo q team often feel like a team of 3 and a team of 2 rather than a team of 5. i've played so many games where it's an obvious baaron or dragon oppurtunity and the duo continues to do their own thing (basing or pushing when the other 3 solo q members can somehow coordinate the duo q members think they are in their own game.

there are more reasons but i'm going to just start here.

Practical application.

- solo q only .... self explanitory.
- solo/duo... since you will be getting far less solo q's then the current system i think most of these games would end up as double duo and 1 solo q. its also possible that the wait for this q would be a little longer, but frankly if ppl insist on duo the extra few minutes atleast they have a friend to hang out with while they are waiting. and the wait would still probly be far less then say diamond tier or challenger teir q's.

post any thoughts or comments please just interested in community response to this thought.

the first option wont happen, not because its a bad idea but because it will increase Q times for people who are really low or really high,

"elo must be within X of each other" this could be done but isn't it kind of pointless? very few people queue with people with drastically different elo's afaik

cowser but if there is an option for duo/solo
then it will only increase q times for people willing to wait. there will still be the other option.

for ppl unwilling to wait they can q into the same duo q trolling mess they have been for years, personally i would rather wait an extra 2-5 minutes to be q with solo q only, when im playing by myself.

you dont understand, your splitting up the solo/duo queue population=higher queue times for everyone

Man, I'm so glad you listed the reasons you listed. I was gonna be upset if you said something about "fairness" or whatever, cuz that's a separate issue.

I fully agree with all 4 points, and think a true solo queue would benefit everyone. It would even do a lot to dissuade toxic behavior in the place where it makes the biggest impact.

For a while now, I've hoped for a way to disable queuing with premades/duos... Not because I don't want to play against them, but because I don't want to play WITH them.
