Wow, and I can't even wait for Draft myself. If I were you I would honestly throw like 30 games to reduce que times. Time is money after all.
He had something like 2750, and was a good 300 ahead of the next closest, iirc.
Point being, I don't think even throwing thirty games would do anything except get him reported.
I'm not sure what the OP considers high elo, but mine I think is holding steady somewhere between 1850 and 1900, (I have roughly the same W/L ratio as when we lost the ability to see elo, so I'm assuming it hasn't fluctuated that much).
Blind pick is generally 2-3 minutes, draft is usually anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes, although I had it go for over an hour yesterday before giving up.
