So instead of starting a whole new thread of my idea and all its glorious detail I'm just gonna redirect you to the official LoL forum post.

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2509304&highlight=reverse+draft

Here's the original post however, for those curious:

Quoted:
So here's my idea, for you: the LoL community, to mull over and add to.
I'm calling it Reverse Drafting till I can think of something better. Basically it's a lot like ARAM in the fact that YOU DON'T pick your own champion.

Map: Proving grounds
Team size: 3-5
Champions required: 16-20 (depending on 3, 4, or 5 team members)

So basically you start out like a normal draft in the fact that you ban champions, the catch is, each player (not just team captain) bans one champion that he/she doesn't want to play themselves. This goes back and forth between teams until every person has made a ban; hence needing 16-20 champions depending on team size.

After banning phase you go to champion select, where you pick the champion the person across from you is going to have to play (I know you're thinking "Trololol" right now, right?). It can be done as a blind pick all at once for each team OR can be done draft style where summoner 1 picks summoner 2's then 2 --> 1. Then 4 picks 3's and so on, until the teams have been decided.
This will create some hilarious team comps while keeping the fun of ARAM intact with the fact you're playing Proving Grounds with a champion you didn't get to pick, BUT it gives a bit of fun to it by letting your team build your opponents team.

Please feel free to leave any ideas or additions you feel would make this even better and don't forget to vote on the poll. I want to see how the LoL community feels about this so that MAYBE Riot will hear us and make this viable for custom games (or who knows, maybe even a legit format).

Also: This should be made into a sticky for Dev reasons.

Well, has the issue that you'd basically have to get your opponent's champion list instead of your own OR it'd have to let you play champs you may not own.

Could be fun tho

Biggest problem is going to be knowing which champions your opponents have available. That kinda' makes this idea impossible with anything except pre-made teams who know each other.

It'd also be a lot simpler to keep bans to just three, and let each team decide for themselves how the bans are done. That way the game can be played as a normal draft mode game in the current client, rather than requiring any custom coding.

I really like the idea, though. I may even see if I can drum up interest for an inhouse of it (for the lulz).

This is how bans work now. Nothing strange. You get to ban champs they have available and don't get to ban who they don't have. The function is there.
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.

The reason I want this implemented is yes, it is impossible to do without premades that have champion lists. All I'm asking is that Riot make it possible to do a Reverse Draft (EDAM [Enemy Draft All Mid]) by allowing you to pick their Champion like you'd pick your own, by viewing a screen of owned and free week champs (except it would be theirs, obviously).

If you like this idea please bump this thread and then go to the link to the original I posted and leave your opinion or just write "BUMP FOR GREAT JUSTICE". Also please don't forget to vote on the poll on that thread.

Thanks,

I agree with this guy. I hate aram. Not being able to choose your champion and everyone going in one lane really wrecks a lot of the game's stragtegy. Melee champs get screwed over, and carries can't carry unless they get fed as you can't farm at all.
+Rep for a cookie.


Truer words have never been said.
