So, the reroll credit bar doesn't seem to work in the post-game. Got a bugsplat at the end of the game, but the client didn't actually crash.

It's a little silly that you lose one of the let's call them "reroll credits" if someone dodges.

Otherwise, amazing job.

I was thinking it had something to do with this map. Nice to see how it works finally. Very nice idea.

I don't actually have a PBE account, but I'd still like to add some input.

The reroll feature sounds swell. Really, it does. You should make sure that the added bonus points for owning many champions are worth it. Let's say LoL had 100 champions, which isn't quite true but it makes the math easier. Okay, 100 champions. Let's say you have 25 champions available. The chance to get a specific available one is 4% With a reroll, the chances increase to 8%. Furthermore, chances are that you own mostly champions that you like. Let's compare with someone who has 100 champions. The chance of getting a specific champion is 1%. If you reroll, it's 2%.

In order to make sure rerolling doesn't benefit people with fewer champs a lot more than it benefits people with more champs, you have to make sure people who own more champs get some substantial benefit, such as an increased rate of rerolls. Really, this benefits both loyal players and Riot themselves, since people are more likely to buy more champions for ARAM if owning more champions gives them some boon. If you gain reroll points at say, 75-100% faster than someone with half the number of champions that you own, the gap between the one owning fewer but better champions and the one that owns many champions is reduced. This would make the game more fun for people with most or all champs unlocked, while people with fewer champs still would be roughly equal. Plus, they'd have an actual reason to try to get more champions.

Also, this would help make people who make specific ARAM-accounts less OP. Sure, even with a lower reroll point gain rate, the advantage of only owning 10 ARAM champs + freeweek champs is probably better than gaining more rerolls but having most champions, but the difference isn't as big.

So... Rerolls sounds like a good idea, but you should give people incentive to have more champs, or else rerolls will favor people with fewer champs.
