Ah, my apologies then, I haven't been on the forums in months. But I'm sure a Rioter has mentioned in the past that it's used to avoid future queues. It definitely wasn't Lyte nor Pendragon... can't remember. But if Lyte has mentioned it that recently, then yeah, not true anymore
*edit: also it was just for Normal games, he/she didn't mention Ranked queues.*
