: Because ranked (or draft pick, ban&pick in general) is ill-suited for testing. People ban the new champion or the champion with the new skin. In blind pick, it is not only guaranteed someone is able to pick new content, we can also test mirror matchups. In a sense, blind pick allows twice the amount of testing that a draft pick game mode ever could. Besides, more game modes means more queues and thus longer queue times on each game mode. Now everyone goes blind pick, making the queue time lower.
