Here’s an interesting League of Legends statistic: Riot’s lead social systems designer Jeffrey “Lyte” Lin told Polygon in a story posted today that games that had a “role conflict or a position conflict in champion select” were 15% more toxic “no matter what happened in the game itself.” Glad they’re addressing that!

I HATE when people go into ranked with one position in mind - or worse, when the team refuses to change roles to accommodate someone who may be stronger in another position. Okay, pick order, yes, but just because I’m a support main doesn’t mean I can’t jungle or mid if someone is much more comfortable with support than a remaining role.

On the other side, I find teams where someone offers to switch with me so I can play a stronger role much more productive and fluid. I hope this new ranked teambuilder solves a lot of the issues.
