ARAM needs a ranked

ARAM is like Playing the Slots at Vegas not Poker. No matter how skilled you are you're screwed if you get a team of squishies with no gap closers and are melee ranged vs a Team of Ranged Heavy Damage pokers and 1 tank that has a gap closer.

Poker you have the people that illegally count cards(It's a skill, you can't count champions in ARAM to get better odds granted you can only purchase champions you are REALLY good with but that's boring)

People that are great at bluffing(can cause others to fold earlier and get them the winning hand even with a bad hand)

People that know when to fold, call and all that.

Poker you have choice on when to make risk you don't get that luxury in ARAM


Counting cards is not illegal, it's just against casino rules.

With a poker system like I aforementioned, you can make a choice during champ select, you look at your team champs/card/player and you can make a choice, counting and bluffing are out, but you still have choice to risk or fold, staking your ARAM LP.


Did you really just suggest "Folding" as in backing out of a ranked game as a reasonable choice and logical reason to add ARAM to ranked? They PUNISH PLAYERS FOR BACKING OUT. If you backout too often not only can you get a delay of 30+ minutes but eventually you can be BANNED from LoL for too many back outs. You get 1 reroll every other game when you have EVERY champion and you can have a max of 2 rerolls, it honestly is not skill based at all, you can't Reasonably "fold" in a Ranked ARAM. In poker you don't get banned for getting 5 bad hands in a row and folding all 5 times in ranked ARAM you probably would. Not to mention it would take 45 minutes to an hour minimum to even get to the 5th time.


I guess I didn't explain clearly, you still have to play through the game even if you fold,its just when you lose, you don't lose as much LP, if you win however, you get much less LP or no LP at all. Same goes for other choices.

So, why not ARAM ranked with Bans?

No one get's a champion until 6 are banned, after that you get random-locked and have a full ninety seconds to see the enemy team and Build masteries, select runes, and swap around?

Obviously bans are

Nid
Jayce
Xerath
Ziggs
Lux
Soraka

However, if you wanted to get an instant win champ then you want to play ARAM normals.

Anything involving that amount of luck should never be even remotely tied to a ranking system.


Yeah absolutely no one enjoys competitive Poker for example, right?


poker has a large skill component

your argument would only make sense if it was competitive roulette

although I've always thought that gambling on a luck based game is stupid

I would personally love to see Dyrus play in BV. I'd like to see him in a game where mid and jungle DC on his team, and the other players are complete trash. I'd like to see him win in that situation. It's a team game and one person will not make or break a game for you.


Pro players have done this before.

They're so fed by the end of the match that they can easily 1v3+.


I would like a source on this information good sir. Dyrus is good, but not that good. Maybe in an Aram, but certainly not in Bronze summoners Rift. The thing about that is that when it's 3v5, the fact that they can 3v3 and still have two champions push other lanes means that it's hard to control the map. And map control is most of the battle tbh


Go look up any "Elo Hell" stream and watch.
