So I've been thinking about this as a possible fun custom game.

It's called Draft Racing, and it's very simple from the surface but can be a lot of fun. It's actually not very much like racing, but more like capture the flag or soccer if your champion is the 'ball'.


Quote:

Rules: Each allied champion that dies in the enemies' fountain counts as a point. The first team to 10 points wins. All items are allowed. Teleport is banned. Additionally, there is no laning, no killing minions or neutral monsters, no getting xp by being near lanes.
Because no one can lane, be near dying minions, or jungle at all, everyone can only level through killing other champions. From the many games I've played, you don't level up to six until at least 28 minutes into the game, so ultimates usually don't come into play.

Since this is draft pick and not blind pick, the bans might consist of good runners like Rammus, Shaco, and maybe Gragas. Alternatively, if team camptains are worried that the other team might turtle, they can ban good defenders like Blitzcrank, Nunu, Alistar. Twisted Fate and Pantheon would be good to ban because of their ultimates, but it would take them so long to get to level 6 by only killing champions that they might not be able to win it in time.

There are many roles in this game, the most popular being runners, defenders, and roamers. Runners do just that, run into the enemies fountain. Good runners have any combination of stealth, jumps, flashes, speed, and defense.

Defenders make sure enemy runners don't make it into the fountain. Good defenders usually have a combination of crowd-control and burst damage. Some of the best defenders are Alistar, Blitzcrank, and Poppy because they can physically push or pull enemy runners from range into the nexus turrets before they reach the fountain turret so they don't score a point. Other good defenders have great slows or stuns like Sion, Nunu, and Ashe.

Roamers are more rare than defenders or runners, and there is usually only one per team max, but sometimes they can make it very hard for the other team to score. A roamer's job is to roam around the jungle, warding and picking off enemy runners before they get to your team's defenders. Even if your roamer doesn't kill the enemy runner, they still made it that much easier for your defenders to kill the runners. Good roamers have mobility, cc, and sustained damage. Good roamers include Lee Sin, Gangplank, Nidalee (for her traps), and Talon.

I am very exciting about this custom game, it's a lot of fun and a good change of pace from normals or ranked, so if anyone wants to try it, add me ingame, reply here, or look for Draft Racing in the custom games list.

I made a youtube video of Draft Racing, quality is really bad because it was my first LoL video ever made but hopefully you get the idea.

But wouldnt towers be a huge threat seeing as it would be especially difficult to get to their fountain through all their towers, plus champs?

I really want them to release ARAM or ADAM as a custom games already. They have such a big fan base it makes no sense not to.

Yea each point in the game would be significant. You would need to run through the jungle and jump over the enemies base wall to get a chance at scoring a point, otherwise the turrets would kill you in three hits.

What i think is that when you press the play button it gives you game modes and it looks like theres a slot for one whole new game mode. I hope it gets released during season 2

Ward -> Mass Teleport -> Flash to their base.
