Imagine a world where you not only avoided conflict with your teammates for lane selection, but where you were actually friends with them and communicated on Skype/Vent and took blame as a team for your failures.
Pulling together 5 random people into a good team through communication, compromise, and respect is a very big part of solo queue. If you don't want that to be a part of your League of Legends experience, just stop solo queuing. Make friends and play exclusively with a team full of them.
If you want to play with random strangers, you must
accept that you will not fit together into a perfect team in the same way that a 5-man premade does. No, not even if you get to pick a role to queue as. Cooperating with strangers is an essential test of your solo queue skill, and that test begins on the pick screen.
