Hello! there's some basic things this game needs and the soonder the better.
1- Mute players in game: this is really basic, sometimes is not even about BM you just don't wanna see people arguing or having long conversations in game, i thought the command ¨/ignore¨ would be active but it isn't, we really need that.
2- Real party system: i've heard that you are waiting for the ¨game to get bigger¨ but that's the wrong way to go about it IMO, people play MOBA games mostly because of the social aspect and the rush you get knowing everyone you play is real people, my point is, there's many groups of people that love gaming together and you're missing on a big chunk of the playerbase, people who complain about it in the forums don't really matter, they will either keep playing or leave (regardless of that) because they don't improve, even the current ¨duo¨ system we have is pretty basic, you can't restart the que without leaving the party nor you can invite someone who's on the que, that needs to change, as the title says these are ¨basic things¨, this would bring me to a UI change on the ¨party lobby¨, again maybe you're waiting to the 5 men que to do that, but i can guarantee that the playerbase will grow just by having that.
3-Whisper: Now... this isn't that basic and more of a design choice so that's on you since we have a whisper system but i find very much a la ¨Heroes of the storm¨ in the sense that you can't whisper anyone you want, i feel that's limiting our choices, i haven't heard anyone who likes the system on ¨Hots¨ (in that game you can't even chat with your enemies which is really sad) but you can understand that because it's Blizzard, and the game is aimed to a different demographic (in the sense that is made for casuals and also the big playerbase it gets just by being ¨Blizzard¨ i know a lot of people that play that game just because they're attached to the company and people who are around it or in game characters, like when your friends buy an Xbox so you do the same even if you like Playstation more) i highgly dislike their antisocial tactics, but that's totally personal.
Well those are it, the game is pretty much in shape otherwise, i don't wanna nitpick anything because i think it's great, i really like the pace which leads me to another topic... which i'm just going to throw in here, a new map, dominion type map that is, i find that teamfights are great and champions are really individual (alike it used to be on Infinite crisis, unlike Hots or LoL were champions feel like a unity) having a dominion type map would be awesome i do understand that it would divide the playerbase but it would be something cool to keep in mind, games are faster (games average 40 minutes now, and can get to 1 hour or more) and more action packed, it's also a great ¨arena¨ to test your champs really fast (you'd start at a higher level, with your 3 skills from the get go) and it's just a lot of fun, it would bring a different playerbase i think, which is cool, they both can have their ecosystem (the 3 lane map and dominon)

And Infinite Crisis ¨Gotham Heights¨: http://postimg.org/image/vku6l8bj5/
Both being pretty much the same except Gotham Heights had a 6th point at the center which would spawn stronger creeps which would deactivate (and tank) all points that were taken by the opposite team (it would also act as an extra point for some time but that was somewhat meaningless)
For anyone who doesn't know what i'm talking about, dominion is basically a ¨king of the hill¨ game mode, were you need to be on top of 3 out of the 5 points (capture the points that is, by standing on them a certain period of time) which turns them into turrets for the team that claims them, there's tactics involved in either sieging this points as well as defending them, there's also a lot of fun action/fights in the ¨jungle¨ (there are no jungle creatures but there's ¨speed pads¨ which give a speed buff to champs, either to make an escape or to move faster from point to point, etc.) I think most of you are familiar with this type of map, for the ones who are not check it out on youtube, it's really good.
