I love the idea of Team Builder but I think it's a mistake to not allow some sort of an option to change your champion once you've been accepted into a team. I play a lot of support and I like to pick my champion to complement my ADC. Do you have any thoughts as to how to incorporate something to allow players to change their champions in order to better form a cohesive strategy?

Just thought I'd drop this (http://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/1olwut/3_suggestions_to_improve_the_flexibility_of_team/) here, a reddit post with a few suggestions for Team Builder.

Lyte, it may be slightly more difficult for it to emerge as an option if the teambuilder doesn't include it.

Perhaps on account of people being unable to ever queue up for it.


Haha, well, I mean if it emerges from data on Normal or Ranked Games, or tournaments.

So I gather from a few posts that there is no option to change/swap champion once on a team. Is this true?

I have a big complaint with this as you may often want to switch champions within the same role (say, still a fighter top, but choose a different one).

Could you allow leader approved champion changes?? Like it pops up similar to the normal queue champion swap request to the leader, just asking them to approve previous champ -> new champ. This way there is no abuse of switch from soraka->Renekton for lolz, but you still have the choice to make legit swaps at the leader's approval.

I feel this would be the most significant lacking feature. I often have a specific role and type of champ I want in mind, but I need to be able to switch champ slightly to compliment team.


If we wanted to allow Champion swapping, having the team leader or group vote for it isn't a bad idea; however, we didn't want to take on too many features too fast. We want to iterate on the core experience with player feedback, and build the system together with players.

The Team Builder you see now, or the one on PBE, won't necessarily be the final version with all the features. We're working on the core experience, and fully intend to add features to Team Builder over time.

Great, thanks so much for the information. Glad you have plans to continue considering improved features. I'm very much looking forward to playing with it!

I really hope you read this post because I want to thank you guys so much for not only your hard work on this cool feature, but for all your diligent feedback and discussion with us here. You all are champions of forum clarity and patience. It makes league a lot more fun when we can have interactive input/insight into the developing front of the game.

Bravo!

This would be nifty if you wanted to actually be able to play a new champion upon release.
