Cosantoir fulfilled his part of the bet, Hering got as avoiding as you can get. There was on his desk a fine Broccoli hat, he never ate his Broccoli and the community is mad. http://68.media.tumblr.com/7a9c293c5212da56a0cc46914ae0ab8b/tumblr_mog9txUY4T1qaqzeno1_500.gif

: >The concern, which still exists is that the addition of another queue would split the player base between normal draft and flex in such a way that match making (not playing against a diamond player if you're gold) and queue times would suffer in one or both queues. Apart from the "not getting matched with different ELO players", I still dont see much of a problem. If you guys are worried that the player base is too split up between different types of Queues, why did you make normal draft a thing in the first place (back in the "old days"? Why didnt you guys go CS:GO ranked mode, where the MAIN gamemode is exclusively in ranked? Also, why did you guys delete normal draft and not blind mode? Blind mode is so chaotic and antifun that its a real pain, and people would have to be EXTREMELY desperate to Queue up for Blind mode. Deleting blind would make new players get the idea of how League of Legends works from level 0. I know that in order to play draft you need 15 champions, but I believe that rule can be changed. You people want us to play more competitive like in the LCS (which many of us btw are against being "forced" to play ranked and not have fun, because for some of us, ranked is not fun, we do not like the competitive tryharding spirit); so having Normal Draft unlocked from the beginning would make new players get the idea of what League of Legends is all about, have some of that competitive spirit, BUT there wouldnt be any risk in it. You dont lose. Normal draft is a win win scenario. When you win games, you feel awesome, and when you lose games, you feel great because there is nothing to fight for (you dont lose LP, you dont get deranked, etc), you learn your mistakes without losing anything at all, AND you actually get to have fun in a ZERO stress envioroment. ___ In all honesty, I think that the reason the big guys at Riot made the decision to take away normal draft wasnt because of Queue health, but because you wanted to force players into playing ranked and nothing but ranked, knowing how unpleasent Blind Queue is, how stale Aram can get and how incredibly boring some of the rotating gamemodes can get. This is last part was a personal opinion, if you, Riot Husker, have a different or similar opinion, please do tell, I want to know yours. And just so you understand me a bit better with this last part, I want to know the player Husker´s opinion, NOT Husker the Rioter. ___ Thanks for the reply btw. You cleared out some doubts I had.

Why didnt you guys go CS:GO ranked mode, where the MAIN gamemode is exclusively in ranked? From my understanding (remember, I don't work on the team that deals with the queues or development in any way, so this is mostly my gut feeling) the concern arose from the prospect of adding an additional Summoners Rift Queue on top of Blind, Draft and Dynamic Queue, moving from 3 to 4 queues in total for SR. While we knew queue health was "ok" with 3 queues, 4 might have been what tipped the balance. > Also, why did you guys delete normal draft and not blind mode? Blind mode is so chaotic and antifun that its a real pain, and people would have to be EXTREMELY desperate to Queue up for Blind mode. I believe this would have been due to the fact you can get in to a game faster through blind as there is no pick ban phase, which would keep queue times lower. But I could be totally wrong. I don't know how many players play in blind vs draft etc > You people want us to play more competitive like in the LCS (which many of us btw are against being "forced" to play ranked and not have fun, because for some of us, ranked is not fun, we do not like the competitive tryharding spirit); so having Normal Draft unlocked from the beginning would make new players get the idea of what League of Legends is all about, have some of that competitive spirit, BUT there wouldnt be any risk in it. You dont lose. I don't think that's quite true in the sense of us wanting to force you to play ranked, but I do understand the point you're trying to make. I also prefer Normal Draft and ARAM unless i'm settling into a weekend of climbing in rank. > In all honesty, I think that the reason the big guys at Riot made the decision to take away normal draft wasnt because of Queue health, but because you wanted to force players into playing ranked and nothing but ranked, knowing how unpleasent Blind Queue is, how stale Aram can get and how incredibly boring some of the rotating gamemodes can get. That's simply not true. "Big guys" don't make those kind of decisions in Riot. Many teams and subject matter experts are involved in these kind of decisions and they're not done lightly. Also, if that were the case, draft would have been disabled in EUW and NA too, but it wasn't as the team felt the playerbase could sustain healthy queues. Thankfully, they now feel somewhat confident that EUNE can do that too. >This is last part was a personal opinion, if you, Riot Husker, have a different or similar opinion, please do tell, I want to know yours.

I've done the best I can to address your concerns, but please do keep in mind that this is not my area of expertise and not something you should take as "Riot says". I'm happy to answer anymore questions you might have to the best of my ability, but keep in mind there are some things I just won't have a clue about

: Just curious, what do you mean about Queue Health? Exactly what wasnt healthy about Normal draft Queue? What it that no one played it, there were too many people playing Normals rather than Ranked (which means a big NO NO because you guys only care about ranked). What determines Queue health?
A bunch of factors make up queue health overall, such as, but not limited to: * Number of players in each queue, which affects queue times and match making * What way players are queuing up (solo, duo, trio etc) * What roles players are picking as primary and secondary The concern, which still exists is that the addition of another queue would split the player base between normal draft and flex in such a way that match making (not playing against a diamond player if you're gold) and queue times would suffer in one or both queues. We'll continue to monitor as normal draft comes back online and provide updates on queue health status.

: Wow, they actually listened. I guess there are some European Rioters out there after all. :^) Thank you for this change. I play on EUW myself, but i'd hate to have the que removed here.
We certainly do listen here in Europe, specially on boards. There are a lot less Rioters in EU than there are in NA, so that can give the **very mistaken** perception that we're all on NA boards and don't listen to EU players. Totally not the case. Please always feel that boards is a good place to give feedback to us :)

DarkG0d (EUNE)
: I was referring to Flex-Q sorry for no clarifying , I personally use it as Normal Draft. but I can see that others in the forums do not see it this way. I understand from where you come from. its not your choice. but its impossible to play Blind pick. cant you guys find a way around blind pick to make it more like draft pick but with fewer parameters ? like allowing all free to play rotation so everyone has the required pool.
So, for me personally, when I decide to play either normal draft or flex, it boils down to whether I want to climb in a ranked experience or if I want to play in a more relaxed environment where I still get to choose my role (mostly) and ban Yasuo x10. I feel this is true for a lot of my friends and other players, so it's really all about letting you chose how you want to play.
Rokąs (EUW)
: I think he was talking about the fact that you guys introduced flex q and solo/duo q.
Gotcha. Well, I don't work on the team that deals with Ranked Play, but I do remember that they covered the reason that 2 queues exist back in the season update which you can check out [here.](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/featured/preseason-2017/ranked)

: i got 2 question: 1. How do i change the name of the overlay? 2. i need and overlay in a different scale. my display scaling is 1440x900 (8∶5). is there a version for this scaling cause i tried to change it that it fits, but i couldnt do it.
You can change the size and edit the name by opening the PSD file with Photoshop of GIMP.
: this is so awsome! though the overlay link is broken atm.... you guys should do some features of small but good streamers!
Can you check again? It worked for me and some friends who tried :-/

Sometimes we have Dominion on the rotating game mode, so _I think_ it's in reference to that as opposed to the static game mode that was removed in 2016.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We'll begin an investigation.
: Roster changes due to mismanagement
Hey UberDanger! I'm really sorry to hear that the banned midlaner didn't communicate with you about nominating a new midlaner. As you pointed out, we didn't want a banned player to prevent your team from being able to play, so we were happy for a new midlaner to join your team given there were several days for other teams to scout your new team. Given that there's only around an hour until the first round is due to begin, it's too late for us to allow another roster change. We have to maintain the competitive integrity of the tournament and as such, allow ample time for scouting etc. While I do understand that it's a really tough situation for your team to be in, I hope you are able to play your games with the originally nominated player and that do really well!
