DONE.

Hey, MWAB? Unless you're working on a legitimate miracle for the map, please put whatever else you're doing on hold and figure out a way to get this to us as a replacement for Blind Pick. I'm perfectly willing to deal with captains making stupid bans if it means at least some of the time we get the worst offenders off the map.

I mean it, you better be pulling some programmer jesus level miracles out of your ass if this isn't at the top of your list. This would be an enormous QoL increase for the mode if you can rip the queue code and transfer it over - I really can't beg, plead, or attempt bribery enough to emphasize how great this would be, but I will gladly try if it'll make you more inclined to do it.

That would be a great idea! MWAB pls!

They could have some kind of team builder for Dom too. You pick a champion you want to play and one you want to ban in case of you are one of the players that will ban. If in your team someone want to play a champion you'd like to ban you need 2 "yes" votes to confirm the ban, so people talk and decide. Just to make things faster maybe.
Dreaming, I know

Edit: of course the champion you want to play can be changed while in champion select. This is just to help with the bans

Hmm, a tempting idea.

I wonder what implications this would have for Dominion in general, though?
By this what I mean is "how much does the average, casual player get turned on/off by the banning phase?" and how would that potentially impact Dominions population.

This is a fabulous idea. I don't know how good the chances are though, since ARAM has been asking for it forever.

I would be all for replacing blind with blind draft as a trial - so as not to split the player base - and see what it would do for our queue times.

couldn't hurt, but queue times would be even more staggering than blind pick

Meh, I don't like draft environments generally. But Blind Draft is extremely tolerable. +1

No real reason for queue times to increase, just adds an extra couple seconds in lobby to toss out bans and the pick stage is identical (URF's was faster for mode reasons, no real need to speed up Blind Dom).
