Tired of practicing a lane in League of Legends bot matches, just to queue up with a group and not get your desired role? Trust me, we've all been there when solo-queuing and not getting your lane can often times be more upsetting than losing a match entirely. Luckily, Riot has responded to the community's cries and has introduced a new feature that helps you claim the role you want and join, or build, the perfect team for you.
