Insta-locks suck. Insta-lockers are all ****s. All of them. I know you hate them as much as I do. So I propose that, in blind pick, we replace "lock" with "ready."

What does the lock mechanic add? Well, it allows us to start a game before those 75 or whatever seconds are up. That's nice. But why not replace "Lock" -- which says, "I'm ready to play, and I promise not to change my character" -- to "Ready" -- which says, "I'm ready to play if this works, but if my team doesn't like the way our team turns out, they can still ask me to change."

This way, people could insta-ready, and if the team comp turns out to be a team comp problem, just have the one person not ready, and complain, and try to get people to switch -- and if the team turns out fine, the game will start within about 15 seconds.

+1 for the new arguments that arise because the instaready players don't want to switch to something else besides 4 carries.

Now, not only did they fail to pick a good team, but given the opportunity to do so they will abjectly refuse.

4tehlulz. I hate idiots.

Special note: this will not change anything about Draft picking.

This would be pretty nice for blind pick, but i still say they sould just put draft pick for normal games lol.

obviously, because this mode mainly makes the team focus on team comp a little more.

I imagine this would be rather simple to implement, and, considering 5 upvotes in only 2 replies' worth of conversation, the sentiment around it seems positive. Is there any way to promote an idea into Riot's cross hairs if it is actually worth reading?

Its a good idea, but I fear what that kind of patch will do to the servers, given Riots past history.
