What you and the forums post are referring to is the system of Draft before positional queues were introduced. > Kind of defeats the purpose of it being blind, the blind doesn't only refer to you not knowing what the other team has picked but also not knowing what you're going to be getting You can get that kind of blind by going fill as your primary role in Draft.

: > In blind pick, everyone picks at the same time, so there's still call order there. Its still based on pick order, first pick first served, i mean, you can be unhappy with it but thats the nature of blind pick They aren't going to change the blind mode
This is precisely what I hate about the queue. I don't think that the first PvP experience a new player gets on Summoner's Rift should favor a first-come-first-serve mentality. It is however an interesting thought to interpret the "blind" into your own role as well. That is something that never came to my mind.

: How do people do it?
In my opinion, there are several fundamental and intrinsic problems with the MOBA genre and probably online gaming in general. 1. **Anonymity** I don't think I have to explain this one. Online anonymity takes away many of our inhibitions and lets our true colors shine through. It's easy to spew insults at a stranger while being hidden behind a username. 2. **Competitiveness** Most people play to win or even see fun only in winning. While there is nothing inherently wrong with that, it can lead to an emotional connection to the result of the individual match, where we take a loss as a devaluation of our person. This sets a dangerous tone from the get-go. 3. **Helplessness** In a team setting with up to four strangers, there are many variables outside our own range of influence. Once we see others make mistakes we (in our mind) wouldn't have made, we generally start to give them less than helpful "advice". I think you know the kind. That is probably also one of the reasons why many players feel like they deserve a better rank. Off the top of my head, these are some of League's most detrimental factors to a healthy gaming environment. As for advice on how to cope with toxicity, there are plenty of videos on Youtube for that. I would start with trying not to take things personal and focusing on your improvement as a player more than everything else.
