I'm curious which people think is a better system for determining who picks their role first.
Most people are familiar with this already, but for those who are not.
The "Shotgun Call" system is when the first person to identify that they want a role in chat is the one that receives that role.
In the "Pick Order" system, the person who appears highest in the champion selection order gets priority over what role they obtain. First pick you may pick whatever role you wish, second pick chooses from the remaining four roles, etc.
The "Shotgun Call" system is that when people get into champ select everyone scrambles to type in the role they want first and whoever hits enter first gets that role. This can be somewhat confusing since it often one or two players won't connect as quickly and wont have earlier calls in their chat history which can result in heated arguments over who called what first.
The Pick Order system is basically that if you are first pick you may pick whatever role you wish, second pick chooses from the remaining four roles, etc. and last pick gets whatever role no one wanted. This system is very fair mathematically since it means that you have a 1/5 chance of being anywhere in the pick order each game and if you really can't stand being whatever is left for last pick you can dodge and likely pick higher next game. The weakness of this system is that because mid and top are very popular positions they are often first picked, resulting in being counterpicked. This can be reconciled through trading however.
Obviously the best system is that everyone talks it out and acts reasonable but since most players are seemingly incapable of doing so, I'm curious which of these systems people think is better.
I'd be interested to here what Riot thinks is the more correct system if either as well.
Discussion and bumping encouraged.
EDIT: For anyone who is in question, no I am not unbiased, I have an opinion about this, but I'm still hoping that this can be a civil, open minded discussion thread and that people wont shut down minority opinions with downvotes. Minority opinions are to be valued, even if we think they are wrong, because they help us to think critically.
