Im not impressed with this response, how am i supposed to be able to sift through all the players and pick out the decent ones, rigorous interrogation? The point is to get in and out quickly, not interested in extensive prep work to playing a 15 minute game.
Dom is nothing like summoners rift there is no need for consistency its a different game mode, no one expects any consistency. Draft ques are so long because hardly anyone is playing draft dom, yeah it sucks that people can repeat que dodge which leads to long timers, it sucks more that hardly anyone plays it because they dont value dominion as the superior game mode it is. Even if you add the penalties for que dodging in you likely wont stop people dodging, if you get back on the same team as someone who just dodged you it likely means there was only one person to fill that slot you will just sit around waiting for another person to come along or that guy to come off timer more than likely. I just play blind pick dom and dont have trouble finding a game I have trouble with bad teammates and being able to dodge out of a game that looks like its going to be unfun and a brutal waste of my time should not then cost me so my choices are to play a game that i wont enjoy and will make me furious or **** off and do something else while im on timer, both of those are bull**** options and shame on you for thinking thats acceptable.
Riot and their time honored tradition of making bad decisions, of seeing a problem and drawing the wrong solution out of a sea of potential good ones.
The real answer here is to have no penalty for blind pick dodging and put penalties up for draft/ranked dodgers but I guess that would require some effort on your part so Im screwed right? Really wish I didnt just put more money into this bloated patchwork of glitches and bad ideas.
