    If in a full stack team, always the Party Leader will be the Captain. So there is no real need for any system like this for teams.

    Just the real public games need a solution.

      +1 to this, I really like your crown/icon next to the captain while loading idea as well.

      I just made a post on reddit about this, it's probably one of many but here's the link:

        Edit: -1 to Imaginary Op. The suggestion to allow the captain to pick a new captain makes sense but I still like the below suggestion more

        my idea is similar to yours but a bit different. instead of waiting until the game starts, and then somehow choosing who the radiant and dire captains should be among radiant and dire players,respectively, i'd like to have a checkbox BEFORE you start searching for the match. the checkbox would have 2 options: 1. you are willing to be the captain 2. you are willing not to be the captain ( and you're able to only check one option). if someone checks the first option, then the matchmaking system will only match him in the captain slots ( blue or pink). if the second option is checked, then the player will be matched only in non-captain slots. and if none of the two options are checked, the system will treat this as "you are ok with both captain and non-captain roles" and will therefore match you in any CM game, no mattter which slots are left.
        This seems to be the best solution IMO. In a stack of 5 the captain is already assigned, however assuming all players are solo queue it is silly to randomly make anyone captain. This would work if everyone playing CM were a competent captain but that isn't the case. I actually never play CM because I don't think I have the experience in organized play to be captain but would love to play a mode that encourages team cooperation.

        TL;DR: Make a Search function to search as a captain or a non captain in CM!

          You guys do read the OP right?What he suggested was not to choose the captain but to allow the randomly chosen captain to swap his position with another player(his choice,not the others)...so far most ppl disagree with an imaginary OP..

                  +1 for swap
                  +1 for checking before searching what you want
                  -1 for ingame vote (you dont know your mates in public and stacks always out-vote solos)

                    As someone already proposed I think there should be at least some "I want to be the captain" option for captains mode. The captain would be chosen randomly from those who wanted to be.

                      Let the captain be selected by the number of leadership commends (only make sure purge the current traded ones).

                          +1 for the SWAP captain option
                          Suggestions worth checking out:

                          Expand the report system by allowing the option to tag comments (screenshots inside) (Possible fix for the chat ban system)

                          Saving control group binds between games

                            If you don't have an intelligent reply for me, don't bother I will shred your non sense to pieces.

                                I play CM for the communication and picking. I am very unsure of my own drafting skills and I was captain once and contributed very little to any form of original ideas towards drafting that my other teammates had already come up with, and being 'captain' made me more nervous although it really meant nothing more as a title for me in that game.

                                An option to switch captains would be great (it would need the captain's own consent for example), as well as a 'queue for CM as captain'.
