  • Implement Random Draft to Ranked MM

    There are flaws with the three modes in ranked. Big ones, that make games less enjoyable.

    All pick: Counter picking, waiting after creep spawns (even now), Non-captain's legal heroes can be picked, certain people enter with one hero in mind

    Captain's Draft/Mode: Game relies on cooperation with complete stranger, solo queuers put at disadvantage, insta-pick captains, in CM some people enter with one hero in mind

    My proposal is that Random draft is implemented to ranked. I believe it is a superior mode. This would get rid of people who plan on one hero, all a more dynamic hero pool so no single hero is in every game, and disallow counter pick chicken.

    Additionally, I propose that heroes not currently legal in captain's mode should be disallowed from ranked. If icefrog isn't sure about their balance, people shouldn't be rated on them.

    its a nice idea but they need to fix the mm before adding more stuff dont you think?

      RD is flawed aswell with its very small hero pool, and SD is even worse.

      In the end, captain modes are the best. Game IS team based anyway so, if you're in AP and don't play like a team, you lose aswell.

        RD Should definitely be added in to ranked matchmaking. It's by far the best game mode to get diversity and a fair game, especially if you are solo queued. CM and CD are full of 4 and 5 stacks, no thank you.

          This will NEVER HAPPEN, CD and RD are retard mods for beginners, the first to pick wins the game.
