Let's go through this step by step.
1. Normal mode only at launch. Sounds familiar? Oh wait that is how the classic game mode started out.
2. No wards because noobs don't use wards? Really, now you are just trolling. It's obvious that they are out due to balance for the small map.
3. I don't even know what you mean by "Now you can pick any champion you want! Its so Great! hur hur"...This doesn't mean all the champions are unlocked for you. They simply mean that all champions are able to be played in the game mode because they are all balanced for the game mode instead of locking out a champ(like they are doing for some of the items).
4. Scoring focuses more on the individual? Sorry this isn't deathmatch. This is still a team focused game mode. It's about winning as a team. At the end of the game you aren't going to say "oh well I lost but my kill death ratio was ok so I'm happy"...That same thing could be said in classic mode but you don't find people doing that. It's win or lose as a team and that is all that matters.
5. So because there will be team oriented "quests" or objectives on the map that makes it for the less skilled? Good thing there is nothing like that in the classic mode. *cough* baron/dragon *cough* wut?
6. And what exactly makes capturing points take less skill than right clicking towers?
I mean, sure, all these things could mean nothing, but how do all things combined, such as, no jungling, no wards, scores highlighting individual achievements, normal mode only, no dragon or baron, and questing all together, NOT make you think of casual LoL?
It is nothing hidden that newbs can't jungle properly, don't use wards, choose whatever champion they want w/out looking at team comp, look at their K/d/a a lot, and don't really care about dragon. And then Riot talks about all these things highlighting how fun it makes things. Which I don't doubt. But they make no mention of competitive play.
I mean sure, it may be somewhat viable competitively eventually, but if you don't see that as built for casuals, I don't know if you'll see anything as such, save a "casual mode".
