QM friendly ban function

General Discussion
I would like to have an option to ban up to 5 heroes I do not want to be matched with. 1st one will be Abathur. I don't ever want to play in a team with Abathur in QM in my life. 80% of Abathur pickers think it will be cool to not fight on the front line and the game is a painful, slow 4v5 loss. 2nd one - Nova ofc. 3rd one would be Ana. Ana is one of the strongest healers, but extremely hard to master.
They'll never implement something like that as it would create eternity que for many specialists and in general for niche heroes.
In this thread, people think HoTS population is around billions to pull those kind of implementation.
Not going happen honestly. Most players would just queue as hero X and ban 5 strongest counters to that hero.
That would really miss the point of QM.
Your suggestion is just an indication of your own incompetence.

If you want to have more control over team compositions, play with friends and/or use draft modes.

It is banning your teammates not the enemies.

Nothing prevents you from banning heroes of your allies. If you truly think them picking hero X is more detrimental than enemy picking hero Y by all means go for it. As long as you have the crown you can ban whatever hero your soul desires.

na just too selfish and ignorant to realize it's really not possible and not smart.
They should just ban heroes like Aba, TLV and also Varian from QM. Especially Varian players trigger me in QM. Those are the typical "I will do a lot of damage" kids, that only pick Varian to go twin blades. Yet they are then matched against tanks, still pick twin blades and your team lost the moment you were lvl 4. Because then you have a Varian that runs around doing camps while you lose every team fight because you have no frontline, no CC and no peel.

Some heroes don't work well in QM. People pick them and are terrible with them. Aba is another example. 9 of 10 QM players pick monstrosity although in most cases the clone would have been the better choice. And most Abas just soak 20 minutes and only care about siege damage but in the end your team loses because you can't win team fights and it doesn't matter if Aba had the highest XP in the end if you lose just everything.

I played Aba in QM last night. I went Monstrosity. It definitely has its uses. Such as on push-oriented maps such as Haunted Mines. While the other team is in the mines, my Monstrosity can rack up its stacks and push down a lane. I ended up finishing the game with lots of siege damage, decent player damage, more healing than our Malfurion, and contributed the most exp. Sure we lost, but it was a close game, and banning certain heroes from QM is a terrible idea. Besides, if certain heroes DO get banned from QM, the only options are to go into a draft mode where you pick that hero, and then your teammates flame you for your pick, or an AI match, where you don't really learn any counter play or deeper strategy. QM is there for a reason. Leave it be.
QM is meant to be a free for all mode. They will never add bans because it would go against the nature of the playstyle. It would also lengthen queue times and empower trolls to abuse the system. If you really want to play games where you can ban heroes go play unranked. Players tend to be a bit smarter and play as a team, not rogues.
If only there were a way to for a group of 5 to set your own team. Maybe if there was a more where you could discuss your hero and teammates heroes with pre knowledge of the map.

To bad we are stuck with only quick match solo queue.

Are you honestly under the impression that Abathur himself has to be present in the frontline during a fight?

I`m more shocked by the 20% Aba`s that go melee in his games

@your idea
If you have 10 people with 5 bans each, that would mean up to 50 heroes banned. You`ll never be able to find a game with a "toxic" hero like tracer, which means it removes the "play whatever hero you like" nature of QM

funny...my abathur win rate is 58 in QM

Abathur actually does very well in QM. His winrate is basically 50%, which is abnormally high considering how bad most QM Abas are.

The reality is that most people just blame Aba and other non-meta Heroes as a scapegoat when they're losing.

You mean for the broken heroes, right?
