Having the system favor friends that you queue with frequently is a good idea and a potential future upgrade.
Thanks for answering!
Hmm... maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. Is there a way to make your friends more easily identifiable when looking at divisions? Like add a small icon the same way there is a "hot streak" and "recently joined this league" icon.
Edit: Or even add a section in your stats that shows some of your most commonly faced opponents! I know I've faced the same summoner a few times before. It would be cool to see how I stack up against him/her.
