Is there any specific reason why me and my friend when duo queueing ALWAYS getting the 2 last spots OR getting 3rd and 4th while 1st and 5th are another premade ?

We have a 15 points difference and it happens all the time, why can't we be sometimes 1st and 2nd or 2nd and 3rd ? Is Riot aware of this issue ?

Thanks in advance,

Since I have been getting no answer I went through my last games to provide some evidence to what I am saying.
Notice these numbers are only from the games I played with him that we had a difference in points/rating lower then 25.

4th and 5th picks - 40 games.
3rd and 4th picks - 16 games.
different picks with one of us being last pick - 10 games.
different picks where neither of us was last pick - 2 games.

So can someone explain me why this happens ? Can some red tell me if this is supposed to happen ? Because honestly its extremely frustrating for the 2 of us to play like this in duo queue .

Thanks in advance,

As you mention points i assume this is a ranked game and as such team order is determined by ELO, when you duo-queue you get placed with people who slightly above your normal ELO bracket as you have a higher chance of winning than 2 solo players statistically, as such they will most likely have a higher ELO than you and as such will get to pick before you

As a duo queue your average Elo is raised by a small factor so you are considered a little higher in Elo than you truly are for the advantage of more direct cooperation.
You may be peered with single queuers who have a higher normal Elo than you, leaving you to the last places.

Duo queue is annoying. Atleast the last 150 duo queue games I have been 140 on last pick. This is bad cause this way I end up more then 50% of the time on the botlane and mostly as support. It's frustrating to have no chance on playing the champs you like, cause you are last pick always.

The solution would be to stop duo queue. I like this game cause I can play it with a good irl friend of mine. If I cannot play with him without ending botlane support to a stranger I would seriously question myself why I keep playing a game with a retarded matchmaking system.
