PSA: Regarding “Calling It”

Unless you are under twelve and on the playground discussing the swings, there is no “calling it,” especially in draft mode.  I don’t care if you said you wanted to play Annie mid, if you’re last pick you need to fit in with the rest of the team.  That is all.

    Sidenote: As a general act of courtesy, do not force your 5th player to play support every single game. Especially if you’re queuing with 4 people. If you’re 4 man queuing and telling me to play support without asking for any input from me, then you surely don’t mind support Akali.

    The friends that I play with have developed a basic algorithm of etiquette for queuing with 3 or 4 people in normals (since you’re guaranteed to have the top pick slots). Your first 2 slots always get to play whatever they want, regardless of who else asks for what. You then ask the remaining 1-2 people what they want, and have your 3rd/4th pick around what that person wants. I feel it’s much more equitable this way; just because someone doesn’t have 2 friends they can queue with and don’t want to go through the troll-storm of blind pick doesn’t mean they deserve to have the boring roles every single game.

      For what it’s worth, people can do what they like in normals – I’m talking/raging about solo queuing in ranked, specifically. I agree, though, it’s frustrating to be forced into a role when you’re the only solo in a premade.

    I can’t say I agree. Last pick should state some preferred roles, because you cant always fill the gap the team needs if you leave it up to chance. I don’t have any runes or masteries set up for ad jungling, so if my team goes ap heavy and demands i last pick jungle, what do I do, play AS fiddles?

    DamnDirtyCat: Hey guys I got first pick so who should I choose?
    DamnDirtyCat: Anyone have a preference?
    GoBoHoYo: Yeah can you get Graves?
    DamnDirtyCat: Sure.
    DarmnDirtyCat has chosen Evelynn
