Top 10 Best Teammates in League of Legends

League's reputation as a toxicity-causing game certainly is not unfounded, but even in the darkest nights even a speck of light may exist. Today, I would like to highlight the unsung heroes of the Rift. They may not get the recognition they deserve or honor after the match, but they are certainly worthy of praise. Let's grant them some recognition. Without further ado, I bring you...

Introduction

League's reputation as a toxicity-causing game certainly is not unfounded, but even in the darkest nights even a speck of light may exist. Today, I would like to highlight the unsung heroes of the Rift. They may not get the recognition they deserve or honor after the match,  but they are certainly worthy of praise.

Let's grant them some recognition. Without further ado, I bring you...

The Role Swapper

Riot matchmaking doesn't always pan out the way you like it to. Duo bot laners often end up split up, negating the effects of any synergy they might have. Maybe the one-trick Ahri ended up in the jungle role, or maybe the Nunu main accidentally locked in Zed (don't ask, it's happened before). Either way, the role swapper is always willing to trade places or champions with another player no matter what he was designated by Riot. This player just wants to win and is willing to play anything to maximize his team's chances.

The Tank Picker

The feeling a marksman player gets when his team locks in three (maybe even four) assassins is something similar to signing up to play quarterback in American football only to find out your offensive linemen decided not to show up for the day and were replaced by toddlers. The tank picker prevents this, and always picks a tank if your team needs one, resulting in a much safer experience for your back line.

The Mediator

Arguments arise on the Rift, and players often threaten to AFK or intentionally feed. The mediator tries to prevent arguments from escalating to this point, and when they do get there, the mediator tries to calm everyone down. That's not to say he won't report them after the game ends, but before the game is finished he'll sound like the nicest guy you've ever met.

The Control Ward Carrier

When it comes to late game control over objectives, players often find themselves with all their slots full. A selfish player might choose a Ruby Crystal instead of a control ward, but a control ward carrier always makes sure to carry one if he sees his team is lacking. This gives your team adequate control over areas regardless if their sweepers are off cooldown.


The Caitlyn Ultimate Blocker

Most players are willing to step in front of a Caitlyn ultimate to block it from killing a team mate. However, a true Caitlyn-blocking teammate is willing to flash in front of the bullet to protect a high priority target with a killing spree regardless of if it means certain death for them as well.


The Support Player

Support players are truly underrated, especially in low divisions where nobody is willing to play support and every one you do get happens to be an auto-filled player. These players are willing to take on the role, enjoy doing so, and help your games start faster without auto-filled players instantly raging upon entering the lobby.

The Lobby Dodger

Sometimes you get game lobbies that are clearly toxic. However, if you're sitting in your promo match it's impossible to dodge without automatically losing your series game. Lobby dodgers take one for the team and would rather face the LP deduction and dodge penalty than force your team to sit through fifteen to twenty minutes of Elo Hell.

MIA Pinger

Constant pings are never fun, but good MIA pingers make sure that your teammates know when they're getting roamed on. The best MIA pingers even indicate the likely direction their lane opponent took to ensure maximum chances of survival for their teammates.


The Game Ender

When the game is close to finishing, players often end up milking the fountain for all its worth for kills. Sometimes this backfires though, and results in losing a game that should have already been completed and won. The Game Ender finishes this before it ever happens.

Alternatively, certain backdoor champions like Master Yi, Jayce, or Rengar can end the game on their own off of a single mis-positioning by the enemy team, resulting in an anti-climactic, but sigh-of-relief win for your team.
