    [Suggestion] Pick role before sign up for a game!

    I don't know if anyone posted this before, but i think that it would be interesting to have.
    So basically the idea is to have a role or hero preference before you sign up for a game, so there will be no more too many carries or support etc...

    For instance : I want to play anti-mage. So the game will connect me with players that wanna play support and gankers etc...
    I think this wont be a problem since the heroes are already separated into different game roles.
    This could be optional thing if you feel like choosing on the spot.

    Sorry for bad English

    Best Regards!!!

    So you will be forced to play a role?

    What about counter-picking or if I want to random?

    I disagree, especially for something like -cm matchmaking that would be very interesting imo.

    Don't be so quick to squash peoples ideas just because you don't personally agree with them. You have to be more open to suggestions. Personally, I find it intruiging. Who knows it could evolve into something.

    I like this idea but the problem is exactly what you said.

    The problem is that everyone will pick "Carry" as their role and the cue length will increase incredibly.

    It also makes Matching players even more complicated.

    Also many good support aren't listen as Support (Sven for instance.) and some Supports can be played as a Carry (Sven again.)

    Lastly people will pick say support to to get into a game faster but not buy wards and kill steal the whole game.

    ever played wow?

    random dungeon queue?


    i bet my nuts 90% will queue as Carry and under 1% as support and the rest will be split into pusher and gankers and other stuff

    now just imaging what happens..

    right

    queue times up to 2398239823982398 years

    it does say in the original post that its a preference... maybe you will not be bound by the choice. this is only a tool for better matchmaking as i see it...
