1) GAME MODE for the purpose of MATCHMAKING
ARAM should be a real game type not just something for fun please riot make it happen
[CENTER]Bedlam, Brouhaha, Chaos, Hurly-Burly, Maelstrom, Mayhem, Pandemonium, Riot, Rowdydow[/CENTER]
My favorite is "Pandemonium" but "Riot" has a nice double meaning.
2) BLIND PICK to counter QUEUE DODGING
I think one of the main problem with this game mode is that people leave when they do not get the champ they want or they feel the teams are unbalanced. ... Second thing that should be done is the enemy champs should be hidden. This would prevent dodging because of people thinking that the enemy team is more overpowered.
From my experience in ARAM I have found most often people dodge not because of who they are playing as or their team comp, but rather the comparison they make between the perceived effective strength of their team to the opponents. ... I propose making the opponents champions concealed.
We need a new Game Type for Custom Games: Draft Pick All Random. How it works: 1st pick on both teams ban 3 Champions, like normal Draft Pick. After the 6 Bans have been placed, teams are randomly assigned a Champion they own or is Free.
4) REROLLING but only once
... instead of the lock in button there should be a reroll button, it should be available after 10 seconds for a one time reroll on your champ. The reason for the 10 seconds is to allow your team to try and trade with you before you use your one time reroll if you get a champ they want.
- The player will display as "Random". No one will know what the champion is until the loading screen starts.
- The player can not reroll after trading nor trade after rerolling.
This would leave a little bit of veto control while not breaking the "randomness". There are poll options above for both versions of rerolling.
Alternate Ideas for Further Bedlam
Just for the lolz, lets put Summoner's Rift and Twisted Treeline into this new Game Mode. Placing them here will keep your results off of your other elo, I assume.
B) DUPLICATE CHAMPIONS
When we make a custom ARAM on Proving Grounds, could there be an option to either allow multiple people to possibly be randomed into the same champion (So it randoms you into a champion, regardless of whether or not that champion is already on your team) ...
- Once a free-to-play champion is rolled by a player who doesn't own it, that Champ can not be rolled by any other player who doesn't own it.
- Skins (when applicable) will be auto-selected so that they do not match. This may result with a Classic skin selected.
I prefer these limitations so duplicate champs will be a bit more rare to see. Without these, the free-to-play champions would come up way too often. The "non-matching skins" idea is just to help cut down on confusion. Again, there are poll options above for both versions of duplicate champs.
C) TRADING BETWEEN TEAMS
