Recently, I’ve been super focused playing leauge of legends, more specificly ranked games. The problem is, it’s not fun anymore. Stessing over who plays what role/lane is just stupid. Afrer about 100 games it’s become plainly obvious that 50% of players who call the lane, outside of pick order generally fail at the role they choose.
I dont have that much else to say. I believe in esports but not the way Roit has it currently. See in real life when sport teams are formed, players try out and if they make the cut, they become part of the whole. They practice together, sometimes live together but more importantly they respect and commuicate with each other. There are, on an average about 9 to 11 players on the feild in play, of any team, at any given time. Now numbers of real (non-esports) teams consist of more players than can be allowed on the feild, thats incase of injury and so forth.
With esports, it’s a little different. For instance in leauge of legends there are 2 ways of getting matched up. There is solo queue, and match makeing, in which you can invite up to 4 friends. In solo ranked queue you are matched with random players who are supposedly close to your skill level. What is unfortunate about that is there are no pre-set positions when you join a match. So, it’s basically first call gets dibs on that role or more likely someone will troll. I know most players don’t mind that sort of dynamic in non-ranked competitive play, but a lack of structure in competitive play costs solo queue player’s greatly.
When you have a teir consisting of 5 players in order from highest Elo to lowest Elo, it would only make sense that the players who pick first get there choice of champian and lane. Forcing other lower Elo players to:
A. Play roles/champions they don’t normally play because of their status in the Elo bracket.
B. Practice these champions in non raknked play to better learn the different roles and thus become a better player increasing their Elo.
Which would trickle down the Elo latter helping everyone out over time, making League of Legends a better game and the community a better place, because players are growing and not being frustrated by what we currently have.
