Oh well :( It's obviously just some loser with his alt accounts downvoting any positivity about Normal Draft because he can't handle anything more complicated than Blind Pick. He's probably the kind of player who always instalocks and ignores everyone else. It's really sad that there are people this pathetic.
This just shows us how toxic is blind pick. I mean..come on. Blind pick players are toxic even here!

: Normal Draft Returns to EUNE
I'm logged in just to reply this. Many of my friends quit LoL due to the normal draft removal. I'm very pleased to hear that it will come back, since I had to play alone or duo in ranked since then. It was a VERY BAD EXPERIENCE and pretty much made LoL a single player game to me. Blind pick was just too toxic and didn't met the requirements. Along qith queue health please monitor the players behaviour too. **Good enviroment is just as important as queue time** or more important than that. Playing with less flame is much better. We rather wait 5 more min in queue than play 30 min with people where we start thinking about losing on purpose, cause someone is just that toxic.

That will keep queues healthy in terms of balance/wait time... For regions other than NA/EUW/BR of course :) Blind pick (flaws and all) is one of the most played modes - on top of that normal draft has the requirements of minimum champion pool and certain levels - which would mean people with few champions or low level literally couldn't play. To make the level of changes needed to make this viable would be pretty big. Ultimately, we would like to take the best aspects of both normal queues (position preference from Normal Draft and less hardcore gameplay/speedy champion select from Blind Pick) into a single queue. That's definitely an avenue we're looking into as it solves a lot of problems with blind while keeping much of the benefits - but there's a lot of work involved in making that a reality, so we have no solid timeline on when that will happen (or if this is even how the end product would look)

Hey just say something preferably *WE ARE BRINGING NORMAL DRAFT BACK * Hi guys, This unfortunately isn't the answer you're looking for, and I'm not the person involved in making these decisions - but I really wanted to give you some context around the decision, as well as the lack of current (additional) messaging around it. When we talk about "queue health", at a super basic level we're looking at how quick you can get a game, and how balanced that game is. There can be a certain amount of tradeoff between these to adjust the other (IE: Get a wider skill range for a shorter queue time, or wait a longer time for a smaller skill range). These tradeoffs can only do so much, however - if there's not enough players in a certain queue, matchmaking is pretty much impossible without huge tradeoffs (IE: Diamond's playing against Bronze consistently). That makes for an extremely crappy experience in itself. EUW/BR/NA have a large enough player pool and, more importantly, large enough player pool in normal draft that we expect the queue health to remain at an acceptable level. With the other regions, normal draft was a relatively small portion of games being played. A majority were playing other game modes such as blind pick and ranked. With the introduction of flex queue alongside solo/duo - we really wanted to give both these queues a fighting chance of being healthy by avoiding segregating the queues hugely. This is where the decision around normal draft came in. We are aware of the pain point that this has introduced for some people though - and we're actively keeping an eye on things. As mentioned we really want to give these queues a chance at remaining healthy and enjoyable for players - both those who are playing solo/duo, and those who want to play flex with different numbers of friends. At this time, we really don't want to jump to any hasty decisions - but we also aren't ignoring you. We definitely want to keep a close eye on things and make decisions based around overall health of queue times and matchmaking, while also providing an experience that honestly a lot of players missed from last year with the inclusion of two new ranked queues.

: > https://dd.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/5butio/how_to_rank_up_in_the_2017_season/d9rfbg9/ I think the rationale here is that three draft queues (unranked, solo, flex) spreads the draft playerbase too thin so they want to cut it down to two queues and find ways to make those queues more engaging. Dynamic/flex queue has supposedly been pretty successful in getting the playerbase more interested in ranked games but it's not really hitting the mark for the top 0.1% of the playerbase so they can't use it to replace solo queue (at least not yet). That means normal draft is the only place where Riot can cut down on the number of queues right now. This pretty much explains why normal draft gets removed. Also even when you switch to EUW, soon normal draft will be removed on those servers too since they want to replace it everywhere with flex So: you will transfer to euw, soon draft will be removed there too then you will be even more pissed, just be happy with flex and then you dont have to pay money
I hope you know that's bullshit. I mean it. Blind pick is **toxic as hell**, If you want to encourage toxic plays with trolls, that's what you do. Currently Riot is going against their own policy. If you don't see that, we clearly don't have anything to talk about, cause you are just blindfolded fanboy.

: Silver 4, fair or not? You be the judge!
You deserve it. 1, If you think too high of yourself, you usually deserve lower bracket. 2, If you don't know that winning in lower bracket is =! winning everywhere and higher , that means you are not ready to quailify.
: hey guys! There will be a chance to unlock higher mastery lvls with champions that gives exulsive rewards for them. This has already been decided! As for now just save up you champion shards and maybe use then to get new champions on release? Hope I was of some help.
This is already a canceled idea. :) Everyone knows about it. Just check it out.

: SoloQ is SoloQ. For non solo players we had Team Ranked.
Dynamic is the same. You will end up with the same amount of premade as the enemy team. That wont impact your performance in the game. If you are the better invidual working with the premades, you will win. Your attitude will count as the most important factor.

: Soloq. Im waiting for it while playing Dynamic queue
Well, honestly, I don't mind if it's got cancelled. League of Legends is a team game after all and everybody has to learn how to move as a team instead of playing alone with his ego. I'm saying that as a solo player mostly, I played the majority of my games alone and climbed alone but well... I do not want to do that again just because there is a new queue. Not to mention that why should I be matched up guys from bronze and silver divisions when all they can do is flame? For me, it's something which totally breaks the game and I don't even want to win. Oh, and the biggest problem is the queue time... I don't want to wait longer than now. Also, as far as I see the people crying for this queue are mostly from the lower brackets. Why is that? You think that it will turn out that you guys only done bad because of others? You guys are the others! It wont change anything... Improve yourself as a team player, that will change the things.

: Riot i am missing the report ''unskilled''
What makes you think that you can determine the word: "unskilled"? Just an example: You are a bronze player and playing there...you have leagues above you with players whose are better. (According to the system.) Let's say that you get matched up in normal game with somebody who is gold. In that case, you might find him unskilled, cause his skills are tuned to that league, not to bronze. What you think is a good step, he thinks it's a bad choice. Whenever you improve yourself, you will realise that some, prevously good choice will just turn out to be a silly, noobish step. Why is that? Cause that what makes you bronze, that you still think that those steps are good and you are still flaming when somebody think otherwise and your ego wont let you improve. That's why unskilled option is gone, cause **you wont be the one deciding** who is unskilled or not, when there is a sytem for that called: ladder. Not to mention that according to that report function, you could be reported by anybody who is better in this game than you. The harsh truth is that you will be unskilled in the eyes of the higher division players, so you will deserve a report. So whenever you want this function back, just keep in mind: in that case, you should be punished too.

: It's impossible for me to win a game anymore
This is a **team** game. Nobody ever care if you win a lane or not. When you are not playing as a full premade team, the most important thing is **not to flame and not to blame**. You know what makes you lose? I can tell you! People will hate you because your attitude and they don't want to win anymore, that's the reason.
: For over a year, Snow Day Malzahar's recall has been bugged
: Gj dynamic queue
Even if he ban "your" Xin Zhao it's his choice. The power of ban that is. You are not a solo player, you are a team player. Sometimes a ban or pick champ like Xin Zhao is banned because nobody wants to risk that he will be picked by the enemy. If your client stuck at 00:00 you might had a disconnect, which is not related to Riot.

: When you feel "sorry" for being Perma-Banned.
I think they are not strict enough. They should use perma ban more often. Mostly when somebody is wishing cancer.
: Does riot staff even bother with eune?
As someone who is playing from beta, I can tell you..they are not. Well let's get this straight, that I'm not just an old player, but my account wasn't banned or anything, once I even recieved a nice little Teemo gift from Riot in the past. Then why I say they don't care? Because the "main team" doesn't even know about the stuff happening over here. Well if they do, It's pretty sad. When we had Ymir on the forums that was the best days on eu. The localizations however went out of hand and screwed up the support in first hand. It's not like they don't care, but they are a very bad team now without any respect toward us. A fine example happened to me earlier. My account as I said is very old. More than six years is not a short time, so stuff happens. Not long after the split I decided to move to EUW and play overthere, but recently I moved back duo to the localization and because I thought I will play with my fellow country members, and honestly...I thought that we finally have our support here. That was a huge mistake. The **hungarian** team was just so amatuer and disrespectful to me without reason that I was literally shocked. As I said above, I gave no reason for such an attitude, but... So what happened? I had a "little" problem for years now, but I was like __"hey, they will fix it if I wait"__. My account on the forum was bugged, and I didn't have my posts and rewards for 1 or 2 year and it looked like that I'm a whole new member of the community. This sounds like a little thing but hey, let's face the fact: * I earned those rewards. * My posts here were just as "important" as anbody else's I decided to ask for help from Riot, like I used to do it back in the days. The result was 5 day hilarious comedy. First, they didn't even cared about my problem, they just said that I have to delete cookies from my computer and etc... How was that related to my rewards and posts gone from the forum? Basicly I got copy-paste. Ok, I wrote it down again, since Riot can't react to each problem personally at first (**however that would be their job**), so I wrote it down again. A miracle happened....the Riot support didn't even know what's my problem nor what to do, and I got a copy-paste answer again! Yup, they wanted to clear my browser history, so I might have my rewards and posts back on the forum. So I wrote my problem down again, with details and in normal manner.... Three days later, another Rioter contacted me, this time he was prepared! He said that I should check my last seasion rewards, cause he fixed my account. (How weird, that it wasn't a browser history problem.) Ok, I was a bit angry about it, cause after 1-2 year I expected them to work faster, and I was still mad , cause I thought I deserve the respect as a human being, to be handled invidually. Honestly, if they would handle my case as they should this problem could be solved after a day, but not... Ok, rage off, I put myself together and wrote in normal manner again, that I'm happy that he solved my problem, but how about solving my problem normally? The new Rioter did gave my rewards back...from the last season. Whoa!!! Now again...post by post I wrote it down **again** what should I see on my profile, so I think they were annoyed enough to fix my badges on the forum. However they didn't do anything about my posts, my old threads and so on. So, what you got now is thanks to the new Riot staff. The old staff would apologize in a long letter, give you something because they screwed up and fix the problem **entirily** not just **a part of it.** After of 6 years, being one of the core members of the community (no sign of that now) that was what I deserved. That's EUNE for you, and that's the hungarian Riot staff. Have no illusions, you are not valuable to them anymore. at least just as {{champion:203}} said: _"Not here, not now."_
