So, a bit of misunderstanding here.
Ban/Pick Draft and Captain’s Draft will ALWAYS be available through Private Match.
We CAN apply these character selection modes to ANY queue.
EDIT: Any queue, meaning any Versus public queue button.
There will be a Ban/Pick queue (called “Versus Draft”) that will appear as a second queue shortly after this patch goes live. Quick Match will be the other queue, and will not have drafting as a part of character select. It will remain a queue for more casual play. (NOTE: This is the current plan. As you know, we can always change as needed.)
I’m not sure that we want to set Captain’s Draft on a queue with matchmaking. Captain’s Draft puts a lot of trust in a single captain to pay attention and make all the choices for the teams in bans and reserves. However, our system and design does support it, if we thing it’s a cool idea. Maybe we’ll try it for a limited time in the future.
How often draft mode stays available depends on how successful it is. I don’t think that Draft mode is for everyone, so I’m not sure it would take the place of a single multi-mode queue. Having it as a second option that caters to our more try-hard competitive players feels right.
A lot of how we proceed is up to you, the community.
