When I go into solo-queue I get paired with a number of randoms who insta-lock their characters like they don't know how to play anyone else... I usually try to pick based on what the team needs, but I was wondering if I should communicate more with the team before-hand so that I know what is going through their minds when they choose their champions.
For example, say you're sitting in Champ Select and you have an AP mid, a bot support, a strong AD tank top and a Tristana. Seeing that the group may need more magic damage, you lock in a strong AP champion. After the loading screen and everyone is their lanes, the Tristana says "ap trist" and the support turned out to be playing "ap carry Lulu." So, now your team has 4 AP champions, the enemy stacks MR and focuses your solo top. gg wp.
Should I communicate with team more or start playing hybrid champs to adapt to any situation or should I just abandon all hope and get together a strong pre-made group?
