They should just make 6-8 bans that are random every time. You join an ARAM and it shows all the banned champions, taking everyone's champ pool into account. This way it stays random, but it is going to punish those only ARAM accounts.

No idea why they don't just open every champ to everyone. It's called "All Random" for a reason, no?

Agreed, many of these easy to implement solutions are fair to players and would certainly improve the Game mode without negative repercussions....

Has riot ever commented on the ARAM smurfs issue before?

In the past week, I've played about 10 games of ARAM, give or take, and Syndra has been in at least 8 of them.

Random my ass.

Could always weight probabilities of getting owned or free champs. That would help curb the problem while still giving incentive to buy champs

Yes because a) EVERYONE would have access to all champions while playing ARAM and b) they would never get to choose a champ.

Heya guys ^_^/

This is definitely something that is on our radar. We also agree from a design perspective, that ARAM-only accounts manufacture a disingenuous experience, and aren't in the true spirit of ARAM (the "R" stands for Random btw).

Much like the game modes on other maps, certain champs in ARAM trend to being more effective and separate into perceived 'tiers'. The issue is the asymmetrical champ selection experience that 'ARAM-only accounts' create. In all other modes, when picking, you have an equal opportunity to choose champs you want as the other team does. ARAM-only accounts undermine this by giving a statistical advantage of hitting those 'tier champs' compared to other players. Here lies the crux of the unfairness.

Making ALL champions available on ARAM is likely to contribute a net positive to the overall sustainable health of ARAM as a game mode, but there are still many things to consider. There is so much energy and passion from you guys surrounding ARAM, we want to do justice to that spirit and not just pull a trigger without thinking.

Personally, I like the idea of making all champions available in ARAM games, and hope this is something we can eventually take a closer look at to find a healthy solution. ^_-
