should be single, and free champ roatations in ranked also increase the chances of picking someone you cant use

a lot of people play with just 1 friend and they needed a way for them to que up for ranked. it makes complete sense to me. you're still matched with random people.

the point of dou queue is to be able to play with a friend while still playing on the solo queue circuit. yes its technically not solo then, but i for one don't have much fun playing the game anymore unless i have at least 1 person i know that a good player.

dou queue has alot of pros and cons,
pros being, you have an excellent early game because your working with someone you know. This also means a bit more coordination in teamfights, and ganks. only a good thing.

cons of dou queue:
dou queue is matched up with higher elo players, you would think its the average of the dou's elo, but its actually about the average +100ish elo. so a 1700 and a 1100, will be playing 1450ish rather than 1350ish. I believe this is done to balance the game out, 2 players know each other so to even the advantage, they play better people. your team however will be clustered around the 1350 mark.
