Many players had been complaining that there was nothing to do when queueing for ranked matches. According to Riot Games Software Engineer tehleach the developers are working on implementing the ability to play Deathmatch while waiting.

On Reddit tehleach let slip the following information:

“Playing deathmatch while in queue is also something we want to do, but first we need to build the tech to allow players to join an in-progress match so that we can have long running deathmatches that players flow into and out of – otherwise deathmatches would quickly empty as players found matches.”

Tehleach also adressed another much requested feature: Bots to play against. In the same post he also said that his team is investigating possibilities to make that a reality.

While his response confirms that Riot is working on those features, they did not state any concrete timeframe for the implementation.
