Hey Lyte, would the team builder include information regarding their performance using the champions they have? I think the team captain should be informed about their teamates, before they make a decision. eg Using Ahri 100 times with a 10% win rate would effect my decision...

Lyte actually stated in one of his posts that they do not want team leaders to see past performance. In fact, if the system thinks that you're accepting players, checking out their history on LolKing, and booting the ones you don't like, it will actually catch this as abusive behavior, and start delaying sending players to you.

The reason behind this is that I play mostly jungle and support, but I wouldn't mind ticking mid as "well if none else". This probably is irrelevant either way, as if I'm not gonna tick mid, it might take few more seconds to find a player who wants to play it, just an idea... will see how you guys deal with it

How will this deal with the ranks and ratings? Isn't it hard enough to find players of the similar rank to play together, not to mention with pre-picked roles?
I agree with this. The Team Builder doesn't let people "fill" a role to get a team ready to go.

I proposed a possible addition to this system that might address that issue here: http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com...6#post42295736

Basically, a team browser that lets you see teams that are available to you(correct skill level), and shows you what roles are available, and what their planned team comp is(like dive or poke, etc...).

That way, you can see what slots are available in teams currently setting up, and you can take mid if you see a team that only has that slot left open; fill the slot and get into game faster.

Let me know what you think.

your point is moot...you can fill every game and still not care that the meta is solidified

I don't see how this is a good thing. It is going to increase queue times to similar World of Warcraft dungeon queues. Which means unless you are a support, your queues aren't going to be fun. Also it reduces game diversity and I don't see how it would work in ranked if you specify what you are playing before joining queue.
