Why is there a "random" option?

As far as I know, you're supposed to support your team with what it needs when you choose a champion. Why have a random option? I could see if it was random for a certain type of character (like random-tank for instance), but otherwise, it's just useless.

Just a random question. :3

It's because Dota has one?

random is for when you've mastered every single champion and can use them however you want, like IceRaptor.

Evidence is absolute. Logic is flawed.

No. I've yet to run into somebody that doesn't play LoL as if they were getting paid for it, but I look forward to that day.

there are custom games for that, though.
even in normal games, there is an element of competitiveness that the random champion select option comes at odds with.
