Well that is better than you think. You will meet people in your own skill level instead of random which could make you end up with platinum + players...
the problem is it feels like my skill level is spreading from apes to geniuses, and I'm somewhere at the bottom 40% doesn't feel like riot is actually trying to match me with my actual level... more like guessing whats happening if we put these and that together...

Since 1st of December, out of 49 blind pick normal 5v5 games there were 13, where no Katarina or Yasuo has been picked. 36 games out of 49 (**73%**) there was **Katarina or Yasuo mid, at least one of them, or even in both teams**. What a unique experience, thank you Rito!

: Hey guys, I just wanted to reiterate - we're definitely not ignoring your complaints and concerns, and many of them are valid. I actually really appreciate people with a calm, cool response giving their honest feedback on this change - it helps us a lot more than pretty much telling us to get stuffed (which you're also entitled to do!). I also appreciate both sides of the fence talking through this (both here and on Reddit - apparently we made the front page!) - getting views from both sides is equally as important. However we're not going to just ignore this, and we're actively going to keep an eye on reactions, queues, player numbers - everything we can to make informed choices in the future. This isn't the last message we'll be putting out around this by a long shot - we'll have more coming over the coming weeks to give you a clearer picture of the vision, the actions we're taking, and how this impacts you guys. Once again though, really appreciate those of you who are giving their opinions, thoughts, and even proposing some solutions. There's been a lot of comments on here already and we'll try to address some of the more common questions next week with our thoughts on things, both before we made the change and now seeing player reactions.
Are you keeping an eye on the chat part of a blind pick champ select? The chat part of those games in the first 5 minutes? I truly know that would be hell of a lot to read through, but that would give you a lot of feedback on its own... (probably the "get stuffed" kind of) *feel free to stop reading now* And that feedback would be true. Because I think (have absolutely no information, just using myself here as a relation) most of the players are not giving feedback on the boards. What percentage of the playerbase is actively giving feedback? I enjoyed draft, when it came out, I instantly stopped playing blind, because 7 out of 10 blind games were a horrible experience for me. No fun at all. It's gone now, so I am forced to go blind. I can fill pretty much any game, I don't mind. I'm supp main, but ok with adc and jungle as well. If top is the one left alone, let it be, I get someone tanky, play safe and try to tp in for teamfights, if noone wants mid (happened 3 out of all my blind games) I just take a lux or morgana, and again, play safe, and try to support my team (with focus on AP). So I am one of the few gamers, with a lot of patience. But I had enough. I don't care if I have to wait 5 minutes in queue. It's worth waiting for a fun game, than jumping into a 20 minute mess. I decided to come to the boards and let my thoughts out, because I've just had a blind game, the third in a row, where role selection were a problem from champ select. The result: we had two midlaners: Sol and Lux the enemy started all chat with "Report Rengar, instalock" I found myself with Thresh against Teemo on botlane, then Lux (luckily a teamplayer) came down we destroyed teemo, rotated mid, destroyed Yasuo (what a surprise.. Yasuo in a blind game... the surprise was that there was only one) who then simply stated "3v1 noobs" "report my team" then he started feeding. then Teemo started feeding as well. simply walking down their lane into our turrets, or us. Then they surrendered at 20. Was it a victory? Yes. Did my team win? No. It was a game I didn't enjoy at all. And if I had that Yas and Teemo on my team, I would have felt even more furious. That's what blind pick gets you most of the time. Or maybe it's really just our bad luck. But that's why I asked, and I really advise that. Keep an eye on the chat of every blind pick champ select! After a week, you'll have your answer if it's good or not. Put those numbers into a nice excel sheet. Swap it out for draft pick (Yes swap it! So you have the same amount of feedback) After another week, compare those numbers in your excel sheet. Research done. Profit!

: Reward for getting S Rank on all Champions
For getting on all of them definitely, but I would like to ask why am I not getting anything for earning an S- rank on a champion I don't even own, therefore not have experience with it. Wouldn't it be logical to reward such thing? I just had an ARAM match, I got a free champ which I played 2 times altogether in the last one and half year, never before that, got an S- rank, and the game says, "sorry mate, you get nought for that, cos you don't own that champ" isn't that a bit cruel?

: Summoner ban request
Right, I agree that it could be abusive. I agree that I overreacted, I wrote this at the moment when I lost four games in a row because of toxic/afk/no-idea-how-I-got-together-with-such-low-level players. I am a patient person and when I have someone on my team who starts getting outplayed badly I ALWAYS give advices first, and trying to tell them to just defend, don't chase into darkness, don't go 1v4 etc, and then I'm getting "yelled" at. Now those are the players I would block. BUT, just think about it. why would be YOUR queue time longer? If you block people who are really toxic to your play, there's gonna be plenty others to team you up with. If you're an idiot, and block everyone, surely you get longer queues, but you deserve it. If other idiots/kids/high-elos-who-got-their-role-taken (not anymore with new draft I think though) are blocking everyone including you... all the better! Coz you don't wanna play with those others! Everyone, who has been blocking hell a lotta players gonna have longer queue times, but players, who don't abuse this, would just end up maybe 2 to 3 minutes more waiting times, but will then have 35-40 minutes of quality, challenging, enjoyable-even-in-defeat matches instead of surr@20 headaches. I am willing to pay even 4 extra minutes to wait for a game that I enjoy, than getting instantly dropped into one wich turns into a 20 minute nightmare.

: I have an IDEA. Lets build separate QUEUE, where people will set their summoner spells , role , lane , champion, runes and masteries, before entering it. And everyone will have the option to "modify" a team by his choice, or if not "picky-picky" , join a random team, looking for someone like him. I will call this " TEAM BUILDER ". Im sure that alot of players will be using it for normal games.
It would speed up the process of finding teammates. TB allows you to pick one role. Example of five players looking for a game: player 1 top>jungle>mid player 2 top>mid>adc player 3 supp>adc>jungle player 4 adc>supp>mid player 5 mid>top>supp This would be a match already with the rolldown options, while with TB we're still waiting for a jungler. BTW have you ever lost a TB match because of people that went afk after 15 minutes? They might have had 30 minutes to play a quick game but had to wait 15 for a jungler (or recently adc).
