Ideal Champion Pools For Ranked Solo Queue

Playing solo queue has always been more about preventing auto-losses than dominating games all by yourself. Even the highest win rate champions barely break 54%, and as long as you don't feed like crazy when you get autofilled, you can climb quickly if you're good at your main role.

However, what do you do in those instances where you do get auto-filled? If you're a support main this probably doesn't happen very often, but it does occur once in a while. Check out our tips below on how to maintain your rank even when Riot deals you a sour card!

This page was taken down once role assignments were implemented into the pre-game lobby, but I think it's still relevant for a large majority of players on their climb to greatness. We've revamped the article below for Season 8 but left the old comments on for old time's sake.

Check out the revised edition below!

Thoughts on Balanced Pools

As a whole, personal champion pools are best when they contain different sets of champions that fit different meta roles. Since Riot tends to nerf and buff champions in cycles, having a well-rounded pool of champions you can play allows for a better chance of steady climbing.

Here are some thoughts on "ideal" picks as well as picks that you can pick up "quickly" if you prefer to specialize in a different role and just have a good backup:


  • Archetypes: Tanks, ranged casters, sometimes assassins, and rarely ranged AD glass cannons.
    • It's hard to go wrong with a tanky top, but having one of each helps and can overlap with your other positions too.
  • Ideal Pick
    • Vladimir - A powerful lane bully and late-game hypercarry, he fits into almost any team composition and can be used in mid-lane as well. His skills are easy to execute and he performs both a damage and a tank role.
  • Easy Picks: Malphite, Sion - Big initiation, decent sustain (shields), hard to kill.


  • Archetypes: AP or AD burst champions, ranged poke champions, sometimes ranged AD with an escape.
  • Ideal Pick: 
    • Ahri - This champion is always in a love-hate type relationship with players who complain she's too easy to outplay. However, her triple gap-closer/escape allows her an incredible amount of flexibility. This margin of error allows her to make mistakes in solo queue without throwing the game. Additionally, her engagement pick potential is one of the best for mid-laners while still having an escape path.
  • Easy Picks: Malzahar, Morgana - Easy and safe wave clear, good CC


  • Archetypes: Tanky initiator, assassin, hybrid bruiser
    • Tanky initiators tend to get nerfed less than the other two categories since there's less to complain about.
  • Ideal Pick
    • Jarvan IV - Always cycles around eventually with his high CC and free team stats. He can play both the damage and the tank role equally well. His engagement potential is also very high as a result of his double gap-closer.
  • Easy Picks: Sejuani, Warwick, Xin Zhao - High CC, high health jungle clears, tough to kill.


  • Archetypes: Tank, Healer, Burst Damage
    • Choosing a support depends on playstyle, most supports are fairly balanced.
  • Ideal Picks
    • Janna/Nami - For sustain and peel these two are almost always in cycle. 
    • Leona/Taric - For engagement these two have kits that are difficult to nerf as long as they're not nerfed to paper.
  • Easy Picks: Soraka, Sona - Heal-based sustain in lane and low skillshots allow for a very wide margin of error.


  • Archetypes: Burst damage, Poke damage
    • Marksmen cycle very often, but most of the ones with some sort of escape tend to be better in more situations.
  • Ideal Picks
    • Xayah - High AOE damage, good escapes, good wave clear
  • Easy Picks: Tristana, Ashe - Long range, good escape on Tristana and Ashe can create engagement opportunities for her team and self-peel.

  1. SSJSuntasticMarch 23, 2015

    Since I'm asking you guys to move over here, I'll add in my pool as well, feel free to provide feedback ^_^b

    Top: Malphite, Cassiopeia, Yorick
    Mid: Malzahar, Nidalee
    Jungle: Amumu, Jarvan IV, Lee Sin
    ADC: Ezreal
    Support: Blitzcrank, Taric, Soraka

  2. TerrowinMagikenMarch 23, 2015

    Sona- sick skin XD

  3. I Main SupportMarch 23, 2015

    If you like Yorick so much how come you haven't ever done a weird pick about him?

  4. I'm going to fall into the trend of posting my champion pool.
    Top- Lulu, Nidalee (bruiser), Cassiopeia, Fizz
    Jungle- Sejuani, Amumu, Nidalee
    Mid- Annie, Leblanc, Diana, Morgana
    ADC- Miss Fortune
    Support- Janna, Annie, Lulu, Zyra

  5. WhySoSerious?March 23, 2015

    Do you prefer blue build Ezreal or straight up AD ezreal? Or is it flexible based on the enemy team comp and/or your own team comp.

  6. He's not a "weird pick" per say.

  7. SSJSuntasticMarch 23, 2015

    I don't think he's a weird pick

  8. SSJSuntasticMarch 23, 2015

    I don't build him real "blue" since I think his burst damage is kinda low with Iceborn Gauntlet until manamune is maxed out if you build him like that. I prefer starting with tear, then going into Trinity Force. If I'm really fed I'll just finished Manamune first, but otherwise I usually built t-force, bloodthirster and last whisper (not always in that order).

  9. Maybe you can incorporate some tankier mid laners, like Swain, Vlad, or Diana.

  10. SSJSuntasticMarch 23, 2015

    Might want to pick up an AD jungler for versatility and a melee support in case your team is lacking in a tank

  11. SSJSuntasticMarch 23, 2015

    Solid reason

  12. RathengardMarch 23, 2015

    Top - Irelia, Rumble, Hecarim
    Jungle - Vi, Jarvan, Rek'sai
    Mid - Zed, LB, Ahri
    ADC - Graves
    Support - Thresh, Annie, Blitz

  13. SSJSuntasticMarch 23, 2015

    That's a pretty solid set of champions, are you a mid main? If not you may want to add a few more "consistent" champions to your pool; Annie would be a good addition since you already play her as a support.

  14. Dazed and DeadMarch 23, 2015

    Just moving this to the new spot.

    Top: Wukong, Kennen
    Mid (1st Choice): Talon, Malzahar, Xerath, Ziggs
    Jungle: Amumu, Wukong, Vi (I might try Wukong some more after this next round of jungle nerfs)
    ADC (Most Boring Role): Jinx, Kalista
    Support (2nd Choice): Sona, Blitzcrank, Morgana

    I try to always play mid or support, as I feel those are my best roles.

    I do well as ADC but I find it tedious and arguably boring which is amplified if you start to get a lead.

    Jungle and Top are probably my weakest roles. I need to practice them.

    I have a few other mids and supports that I play but they are more situational picks than they are mains.

    Also, playing as Kalista with a Blitzcrank support leads to one of the most rewarding combos ever... Blitz Q into Kalista's Ulti is the largest displacement in the game and usually a free kill.

  15. Shady GreyMarch 23, 2015

    top: Pantheon, Garen, Wukong
    Jungle: Shaco(main), Amumu, Fiddle
    Mid: Akali, Diana, Talon
    Support: Janna, Soraka, Thresh
    Adc (( suck at it soooooo much): Quinn, Ezreal, Sivir

  16. Top:tryndamere,renekton,wukong,rumble,swain.
    Mid:talon, brand,wukong
    Adc: Graves,draven,tristana

  17. RPGfan2000March 23, 2015

    ADC: Sivir, Ashe, Lucian, Graves
    Support: Anyone

  18. Just adding in my pool! Please disregard me, I'm Bronze 5 and I play mostly norms.

    Top (main role) - Wukong, Nasus, Rekt'Sai, Gnar
    Jungle - Rekt'Sai, Master Yi, Jarvan IV
    Mid (least favorite role) - Zed, Brand, Annie

  19. Top: Wukong, Darius, Fiora, Gangplank (Can play majority of top but main these)
    Jungle: Jarvan IV, Wukong, Amumu
    Mid: Twisted Fate, Wukong, Jayce, Morgana
    ADC: Sivir
    Support: Soraka, Morgana

    Recently got back into the game, ADC/Support are my worst roles but still looking to add more champs into my pool as I realize my champ pool isn't the best

  20. mlightgamerMarch 23, 2015

    I have limited time to play the game, so i'm trying to keep my pool
    small to compensate. Its basically just Fiddle jg > annie sup/mid
    > kayle buffer.

    Top: Kayle
    Mid: Annie, Kayle
    Jungle (1st choice): Fiddlesticks, Kayle
    Support (2nd choice): Annie, Kayle, leona
    ADC (Last choice): Caitlyn

  21. SSJ, thoughts?

    Top: Vayne (main champ), Irelia, Maokai, Riven, Swain, Urgot
    Jungle: Lee Sin, Hecarim, Yi
    Mid: Ahri, Azir, Zed, Kassadin
    ADC (main role): Vayne, Ezreal. I can play all the adc's
    Support: Thresh, Janna, Vel'Koz. I can play all the supps

  22. Dragonblade TalonMarch 23, 2015

    My pool doesn't seem that flexible lol...
    Top - Irelia
    Jungle - Naughty-less
    Mid - Kassadin (or Talon)
    ADC - Varus
    Support - Thresh (or Leona)...

  23. smokeybongwatersMarch 23, 2015

  24. Top: Sion, Wukong, Jax
    Jungle: Rammus, Skarner
    Mid: Annie, Talon, Ahri
    Support: Taric, Sona
    ADC: Jinx, Sivir

    I'd say I'm pretty well rounded

  25. Start finding a couple a more for top. Irelia is a pretty contested pick.

  26. Top: Sion, Hecarim, Nasus
    Jungle: Hecarim, Vi, J4
    Mid: Annie, Heimerdinger
    Support: lol a lot of those: Sona, Janna, Taric, Nami
    ADC: Ashe, Sivir, Caitlyn

  27. Brandon PursifullMarch 23, 2015

    From best to worst in each position:

    Top: Hecarim, Gnar, Heimerdinger, Teemo, Poppy, Singed Nasus
    Jungle: Udyr, Diana, Hecarim, Zac, Reksai, Amumu
    Mid: Diana, Katarina, Heimerdinger, Leblanc, Xerath, Karthus, Zed
    ADC: Tristana, Ashe, Teemo (I suck at ADC and only have these champions because i know i suck)
    Support: Alistar, Blitzcrank, Bard, Morgana, Janna

    Yea i play a lot of champs often but most commonly the first 3 or so in each position.

  28. Alfred DunnerMarch 24, 2015

    My champion pool.

    Morgana support.


    Main 1 champ and you'll go far enough.

    SOURCE: Gold 1 in promos for plat. :)

  29. Let's do this :)

    Adc: Jinx

  31. Hey guys im an adc main. im having a hard time deciding my pool and i keep switching PLEASE HELP!

    champions i like playing: lucian varus graves sivir kalista tristana corki

    so who do u think i should drop?

    my ideal champ pool for adcs is this: graves lucian varus sivir
    is this a diverse pool or am i missing something? my uncertainty in my pool is effecting my play since im stressed on who i should and shouldnt play. in the end of the day i want to have fun and i want to climb so please give me your thoughts on if its a good pool or not! thanks

  32. CrunchWrapSupremeMarch 24, 2015

    My champion pool

    Top: Gnar, Nasus, Hecarim
    Mid: Diana, Katarina, Yasuo
    Support: Thresh, Braum, Leona
    ADC: Lucian, Graves, , Tristana, Twitch (normals only)
    Jungle: Pantheon, Rek'Sai, Maokai

  33. CrunchWrapSupremeMarch 24, 2015

    Renekton and Gnar are very similar to Irelia

  34. My champion pool:
    Top: Teemo, Nasus, (A lot of the time I'll just play one of my mid champs if I have to top)
    Jungle: Jarvan, fiddlesticks, master yi
    Mid (main role): zed, ahri, katarina, Annie, Morgana, Leblanc, xerath,

  35. would add annie as easy pick mid (kinda biased as she was my first main) she is easy to learn, and although the meta favors long ranged champs right now(her counters) you can use flash to kill them or roam

  36. Blight Crystal VarusMarch 24, 2015

    I don't play much, but out of the ranked games that I felt like going top, I got Irelia for both games

  37. Exevier EtcheverryMarch 24, 2015

    Better early in general.

  38. StokeDaddyCMarch 24, 2015

    Top: Singed, Akali, Wukong, Morgana
    Mid Akali, Wukong, Morgana
    Jung Nocturne, Wukong, Maokai
    ADC Draven, Tristana, Urgod
    Support Morgana Allistar.

    I have moved to Korea and therefore have started over so right now I am only playing the frees every week, trying to expand the pool or understand opponents better. Any feedback on the pool will be respectfully accepted unless you dog my boy Urgod.

  39. Exevier EtcheverryMarch 24, 2015

    My champion pool:
    Top: Elise, Shyvana, Irelia, Morgana, and when I'm bored I play Leblanc AD (interestingly she is who gives me better results).
    Jg: Elise, Sejuani (well she is not playable since she is ban/pick), Skarner and Irelia.
    Mid: Elise, Zyra, Syndra and Wukong.

    Sup: Morgana, Zyra, Sona and Taric.
    Adc: I do not play this role continued but when I have to go I play Ashe or Sivir.

  40. Funny how you started the list with vladimir after saying pool. Im bored

  41. Patryk PyzelMarch 24, 2015

    Top: fizz, nidalee
    Jungle: fizz, nidalee, Lee
    Mid: nidalee, zed, ezreal
    ADC: ezreal
    Support: Janna, thresh, Morgana.

  42. ahah unintentional pun i guess?

  43. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    Then she'd be kinda crazy. Her late game is so dominant with her ultimate.

  44. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    You have a pretty diverse pool. Sivir is a very strong utility type, Graves as a burst type, caster Lucian, and a utility/Caster in Varus. Only thing you may want is a great hypercarry like Jinx or Tristana.
    Don't stress over who to play. In the end it's all about fun, which is what you said you aim for. So play with your ideal pool.

  45. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    You have good consistency with having someone in 2 roles when it comes to top, mid, and jungle. Very smart to do that.

  46. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    Alright, so here is mine. I'll list from best to worst and then 1-2 champs I'm practicing per role (in paranthesis). Any comments on my picks is greatly appreciated!
    Top: Olaf, Sion (Rumble)
    Jungle: Evelynn (Olaf, Skarner, Sejuani)
    Mid: Anivia (Twisted Fate, Xerath)
    ADC: Ashe, Kalista (Draven)
    Support: Leona (Bard, Thresh)

  47. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    @SSJSuntastic This is a really great page to make! Really appreciate all you do!
    So 2 champs I'd like your opinion on are Olaf and Evelynn. Do you feel Olaf is good for top with his great tankiness? Also, is his jungle good?
    2nd champ is Eve. You listed that Hybrid bruisers are good for jungle.

  48. i don't like the way you spelling urgot, lol

  49. My Champion Pool:
    Top (Main role): Hecarim, Aatrox, Malphite, Darius, Nasus, Garen
    Jungle (least fav role): Hecarim, Rek sai, Master Yi
    Mid: Katarina, Annie
    Adc: Ashe, Jinx, Graves, Sivir
    Support: Blitz, Annie
    What do you guys think?
    I kinda lack the mid and support role, idk what could suit me better.
    Since Xerath and Braum are on free rotation i`ll give them a try.
    Any comments or others picks are appreciated

  50. Evelynn is fairly weak but she's getting a buff next patch in 5.6 (I think I read that on s@20)

    Olaf is an amazing duelist, but gets kited fairly easy making him not that amazing for end game

  51. Needs a better early game like Exevier says.

    Useless early game, god late game. The problem is getting to late game without being underfed

  52. my champion pool (ranked from fav role to least fav role)
    Support: Thresh/Leona/Morgana/Janna/Sona
    Adc: Tristana/Jinx/Caitlyn
    Jungle: Fiddlesticks/amumu/Jarvan
    Mid: Ahri/Yasuo/Ziggs
    Top: Nasus/Malphite/Jarvan

    may be someone could suggest what is missing in my champ pool right now

  53. Miguel Alejandro MirandaMarch 24, 2015

    My champion pool c:

    Mid(main): Cassiopeia, Ahri, Leblanc, Katarina.
    Support: Janna, Sona, Nami.
    Adc: Sivir, Tristana, kog'maw.
    Top (least played): Lulu, Lissandra.
    Jungle: Elise, Evelynn.

  54. I'm a diamond 5 top/jungle main, but I suck mechanically
    only 10% of my games are mid/AD
    hope this helps those who suffer from slow clicking XD
    current pool for 5.5

    Top: Wukong Sion Volibear
    Jungle: Sejuani Fizz Amumu
    Mid: Brand Velkoz Wukong
    AD: Graves Corki Jinx
    Support: Thresh Leona Braum

  55. I tend to be good with champions that suits my playstyle, and really bad with champs that don't.

    Champs I like:
    Top: None.
    Jungle: Fiddlesticks.
    Mid: Lux, Ezreal.
    Adc: Ezreal
    Supp: Nami

    Champs I can pick but I don't consider that I give my best when I play them:

    Top: Riven, Dr. Mundo.
    Jungle: Warwick, Cho'Gath.
    Mid: Katarina.
    Adc: Vayne
    Supp: Morgana.

    So my playstyle is 'play safe' and 'good game sense', you need game sense to play fiddlesticks, nami. And you have to play safe with Lux, Ezreal, Fiddlesticks...

    So I always say that you need to find the playstyle that suits you, and improve by playing that playstyle. Also I recommend playing weird picks that won't get stolen, that people also don't know how to play against them, and also won't get ban.

    It also depends on the region, I often see ban rates and pick rates of NA, and it has NOTHING to do with what happens in LAS (Latin America Server, where I play).

  56. SSJSuntasticMarch 24, 2015

    As a Blitzcrank player, I generally prefer if Kalista players save their ult in case the enemy jungler ganks and I need to get out. It's definitely very satisfying to execute the combo though.

  57. SSJSuntasticMarch 24, 2015

    I think he's good since his late game is extremely strong, which works well against teams that have trouble ending the game in a timely fashion.

  58. so, do you think i should unlock him, im bronze btw

  59. Andrew KiddMarch 24, 2015

    My main champion pool:-
    Top (least favoured role): Irelia, Lissandra, Darius
    Mid (second role): Katarina, Brand, Annie, Malzahar
    Jungle (main role): Volibear, Skarner, Xin Zhao, Evelynn, Sejuani (S4 Warwick, Vi and Volibear main)
    ADC: Sivir, Jinx
    Support: Sona, Karma

    Champions I'm confident playing in ranked but rarely play (at least this season):-
    Top: Vladimir, Wukong, Pantheon, Yorick, Fiora
    Mid: Zyra, Akali, Diana, Heimerdinger, Talon
    Jungle: I play pretty much every jungler except Fiddlesticks, Rengar, Elise, and Lee Sin
    ADC: Miss Fortune, Vayne
    Support: Leona, Nami, Janna

    My most played champions this season are Katarina, Jinx, and Skarner.

  60. thecheezelMarch 24, 2015

    Something of note is that it will help you a lot to pick up Champs who are viable in multiple roles. Some champs (Warwick) may only take 10 games to master but that isn't the case with most of them. Champs like wukong, lulu, lissandra, nidalee, jarvan and others can make your life much easier if you master them. Not that you should do it but one of my proudest moments last season was snowballing an adc with j4 support after a last pick autolock.

    Tldr: learn versatile champs, rule the rift

  61. Most very good versatile champs takes over 10 times 10 games to master...and even!

  62. thecheezelMarch 24, 2015

    Yes, as I said, most take more. But if you are going to be putting 50, 100, 200 games into a champ then why not have it be one you can play in two or three lanes rather than doing it on say... Nunu

  63. thecheezelMarch 24, 2015

    Of course I decided to main sej once j4 became a permaban, so this is somewhat funny for me to say

  64. Long time i didn't see J4 banned.
    Most banned so far are Katarina Ahri LeBlanc Lissandra Nidalee (in 3/4 of my games those are insta banned)

  65. thecheezelMarch 24, 2015

    I never see a couple of those banned (you may be higher or lower than me resulting in slightly different bans, g3 here) but at the beginning of the season when I was looking for a champion to spam j4 had one of the highest ban rates.

    Maybe someone can check me on that j4 ban rate for first two weeks of this season?

  66. Well.. in the Bronze-Silver world they're still banning Leona, Blitz, Amumu and others..

  67. Dazed and DeadMarch 24, 2015

    Of course, defensive use of her Ulti is permitted. Just making an observation that applies mostly to mid game picks, which can really turn the tides in low elo games.

  68. Erron BlackMarch 24, 2015

    Maokai plays all lanes well

  69. thecheezelMarch 24, 2015

    The tree is a great example and he isn't overly complex. Utility translates very well across all lanes

  70. Hey guys, I main jungle.

    My top junglers are Fiddlesticks, Rek'sai, Amumu, Xin Zhao and J4 but i master Fiddlesticks.

    What i trying is not to go to bot lane, where i usually suck and if i have to, then I pick fiddlesticks supp, amumu or even Xin supp. In ranked games you should only play the champs you feel more comfortable with and not taking unnecessary risks picking up a champion you dont know how to run.

    I also go mid Fiddlesticks, Top Rek sai, Xin and others.. Call me troll, but i play for the win.

  71. Well if you can't get your desired role, it's better to just dodge imo. Picking troll champs may demoralize your team hence making it harder to maintain a positive attitude - UNLESS YOU'RE ON PROMOS. Also, dodging actually helps in climbing the ladder, trust me. Also, Top Rek Sai is still really strong despite nerfs :P

  72. Syncite gave you a great piece of wisdom to listen.
    Pity you ain't following also SSJ TL since they are really good to!

    Fiddlesticks / Amumu & J4 great combination for Xin & Rek'Sai...not really plus those 3 are way more than enough!
    There are limit of those words apply "You should only play the champs you feel more comfortable"
    those example kinda make me sad for your teammates there are better alternatives which will go accord your playstyle and you will feel more useful...

  73. Useless ban to be honest except Amumu but imo Sejuani > Amumu in term of ban but still better than the Leo & Blitz ban...i call this waste of resources every top or decent players will say so...

  74. Hard to see now i was between G1 & G2 previous season and kinda having difficulties to get back in there atm...
    Plus i had connection issues randomly like playing 2 games fine 30ping no issue and then KABOOM 65K Ping! thx god i fixed the issue yesterday by drawing a new phone line...

  75. Great pool overall!

  76. Good pool except for Jungle the Elise & Evelynn era is least for now :(

  77. Similar between each other but not to need to expend your pool trying to find other champs you feel fancy to play so that you can complete it.

  78. Add one or two ADC and you will be solid.

  79. You should add some ADC like those SSJ mentioned.

  80. Only if you really enjoy playing it he's really lethal and his passive helps for late game team fight (when his E & Ult are scaled to the maximum + AP Items)

  81. I'll join in the fun, my champ pool looks like this: (I'll explain some of it)

    Top: Gnar, Yorick, Wukong, Tryndamere, Teemo, Karma, Malphite, Morgana, Ziggs
    Mid: Ahri, Swain, Ziggs, Yasuo, Malzahar, Karma
    JG: J4, Sejuani, Amumu, Malphite, Wukong, Rek'Sai
    ADC: Jinx, Graves, Varus, Twitch, Kog'Maw
    Sup: Leona, Morgana, Karma, Thresh, Ziggs

    My Top lane pool is "Large" only because you can pretty much play every champion in LoL top lane. If I had a top-lane main it would be Gnar as I have over 500 games on him since he came out. Other than that I try to cover every "Role" using these champs. Last season I mained top. If you are noticing a theme with these champions.. its that they are extremely easy to play. (Solo Queue)

    Mid lane is more of the same, covering the roles I can. Ahri has always been my main mid-lamer but I am confident in my ability to play 5 of them at a decent level.

    JG is my weakest role but every champ I play has an extremely easy kit.

    ADC is my main role, I play it as often as I am allowed. The five champions I play are the ones I am most comfortable with and cover all possible counters. I can play others like Ashe and Cait, but I won't do nearly as well.

    Sup is the role I play the second most. Leona.. is freelo. Anyone who wants to play support should leaner how to play Leona in Solo Queue. Ziggs, while unconventional, has been my go-to support when picking Karma doesn't make sense but we need heavy poke.

    The first three that appear in every role, I have over 150 games on each of them. They would be my "Mains"

  82. I agree with josh in adding a late-game hyper carry. Jinx is probably the best as she is the easiest to play and takes turrets faster than almost any champ in the game.

  84. Bronzie753March 24, 2015

    Hey guys !

    I wish to try ranked again. I’m aware I need a good champion pool. Ideally 2-3 champs/position with which I’m really comfortable with.

    As of now these are the champs I’m most comfortable with (aka I’d go ranked with these guys and not be too ashamed of my performance) :

    Top (main position): Garen, Maokai, Trundle (as of now my go-to is Maokai, Garen for the Jax and Irelia and Trundle for them fat tanks).
    Jungle (least played): Master Yi
    Mid (2nd position): Malzahar, Twisted Fate (tho my Destiny ganks are still meh the rest is OK), Annie (I’d add Veigar but he’s…meh right now)
    ADC: Graves
    Support: Annie

    Champions I own (I’ve played most of them a
    few times and know their mecanics however I’m not confident enough with them to
    bring them into ranked):

    Top: Vladimir, Jax, Kennen, Malphite, Nasus, Sion
    Jungle: Jarvan IV, Xin Zhao, Warwick, Fiddlesticks, Rengar
    Mid: Katarina, Leblanc, Veigar, Kassadin, Kayle
    ADC: Vayne, Ashe, Sivir, Corki
    Support: Braum, Leona, Karma

    I know I own a lot of guys and I guess I should look to that to fill my pool however I’m a bit of a loss at which I should practice most. I feel like I’m missing a Splitpusher/Carry (like Trynd or Fiora) for Top, I’ve got Jax, but I always feel like I suck with him, I always get destroyed in teamfights (maybe it’s because I play so many beefy Tanks…). Can Trundle fill in as the splitpusher ?

    Is there anything I should look into to fill my pool (these are ideas I’m toying with) ?

    -Swap out Trundle and/or Garen (keeping them as counterpicks) for Malphite and/or Kennen and/or Jax (more utility and CC) ?
    -Praticing Warwick and Xin Zhao jungle ? (I’ve played quite some JIV on Twisted Treeline, but always as a laner not jungle, I kinda suck with jungler that don,t have built it sustain or fast clear).
    -Swap Annie or TF Mid with an assassin ? Leblanc or Katarina ? I’ve played more Kata, but her early laning is so hard…
    -Practice Corki and Sivir for ADC ? Should I look to Tristana ?
    -Practice Leona and maybe get Janna for support ?

    Anyways, sorry for the long post.

    Thanks for your help with an Unranked Bronzie

  85. i have a very small champ pool
    top: swain - amumu - shen
    jungle: nautilus - wukong
    mid: swain - velkoz - lux - zed
    adc: ezreal
    support: karma - zyra - velkoz - soraka

    is it rather bad to have such a small pool? should i expand it more or am i fine?

  86. If you like playing safe you could get Nasus as your toplaner.

  87. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    What rank are you? It's usually best to have at least 2 or 3 champions you can use comfortably in a role. Also, you could try to bring champions into multiple roles like Amumu to the jungle and Wukong to the top lane.
    Having a small pool is fine, it's all about what you're comfortable with. You can expand in the future.

  88. David Cervera vivancosMarch 24, 2015

    You guys play too many champs i just play leona and braum with a duo partner and im almost in plat atm

  89. i am currently platinum 5. and im sometimes facing the problem of for example, amumu being banned, swain already picked by enemies and shen counter picked. any tips other than expanding pool for that?

  90. :O Maybe, I didn't use him at all so I kind of forget about him but I'll try and see what happens. Thanks.

  91. Jonathan KlineMarch 24, 2015

    I've made it to plat with Leona, but I've noticed that it feels stagnant, and I don't think I'll be able to climb any further without picking up new champions and/or lanes. It's really annoying to go into queue every time hoping that the enemy doesn't pick Janna. If you have time, I suggest you pick up a good secondary role or support style.

  92. I'm about to start my placement matches, figured I'd get some input on my pool before I dive into hell. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Top (main): Kennen, Singed, Darius, Maokai (I know a few more, these are just my favorites)
    Jungle (not that great at it, still trying to learn): Sejuani, Amumu, Hecarim, Fiddle
    Mid: Katarina, Talon, Diana, Cassiopeia, Malzahar
    ADC: Sivir, Varus, Kog'Maw
    Support: Sona, Morgana, Nautilus, Annie

  93. I think my champ pool is pretty good, I always fill so support is like my main role with jungle as close second, with mid being my least played role:
    Top: Urgod, Aatrox, Kayle, Donger, Fizz, Teemo, Azir
    Jungle: Sejuani, Ammumu, Aatrox, Kayle, Fizz, Rammus
    Mid: Talon, Kassadin, Ezreal, TF, Annie, Kog'maw
    ADC: Ezreal, Caitlyn, Kog'maw, Ashe, Trist
    Support: Zyra, Leona, Braum, Taric, Thresh, Morgana, Sona, Annie, Karma

    Weird picks I have done and can work (not on ranked obviously):
    Top: Ezreal, Annie, Taric, Zyra
    Jungle: Leona, Karma, Ezreal, Donger, Zyra, Urgod, Teemo
    Mid: None, I don't play mid that much d:
    ADC: TF, Thresh
    Support: Teemo, Sejuani, Ammumu, Urgod, Donger, Ashe (Ashe support is extremely viable imo)

  94. You should probably practice an adc with an escape like Cait, Ez or Graves other than that I think you got a pretty good pool.

  95. You could take the champs you already play in other roles like zed or wukong.

  96. I don't understand the aim of this page. Can someone explain me plz ?

  97. ZealithgodMarch 24, 2015

    I'd say replace Shen with a more meta-based top like Sion. Seems like the best course of action. I mean with Shen top, you just have to hope they aren't very aggressive early and your jungler actually has time to gank you if your other lanes are losing.

  98. Goes in order of skill from left to right
    Top: Wukong, Xin, Fizz,vlad,

    Mid: Annie, Talon,Yasuo, Vlad

    Jungle: Vi, Amumu, Xin,Hecarim, Udyr

    Adc: Graves, Lucian, Kog’Maw,Draven

    Support: Leona, Poppy

  99. ShallowellMarch 24, 2015

    My understanding is that it's trying to describe well-rounded champion pools that will generally allow a player to decently handle any role. It provides suggestions for commonly strong champion types for each role as well as examples of champions that fit those roles well.

  100. ZealithgodMarch 24, 2015

    Here's my list:

    Top: Wukong, Maokai, Malphite
    Mid: Morgana, Lissandra, Katarina
    Jungle: Hecarim, Nautilus, Rek'Sai
    ADC: Ezreal, Jinx, Graves
    Support: Janna, Leona, Blitzcrank/Thresh

  101. ZealithgodMarch 24, 2015

    They run that in Challenger lol. Well Leona and Blitz usually.

  102. Top: Malphite
    Mid: Malphite
    Support: Malphite (and Blitzcrank)
    Jungle: Malphite
    ADC: uh.... Sivir?

  103. Ok so that a "Easier picks tier list " ?

  104. Ben HaertelMarch 24, 2015

    Warwick is such an idiotproof champion that I think he deserves a spot on the "easy jungler" list ;p

  105. Acrux SaarMarch 24, 2015

    not much time right now to go through the whole list but if you're bronze, i'd say just learn the game. Learn how to carry when you do well and not feed when you fall behind. Two champs each for four roles will get you through 90% of champion selects with a champ you're comfortable with. Mastering support will probably lead you straight into gold eventually since people hate playing it at bronze level.

    Funnily enough I got through bronze with xin zhao jungle in season 3 and through silver with xin zhao top. Each time i screwed around with fifteen different champions the whole season and towards the end I just went back to xin zhao for a few weeks. Xin is alright at the moment actually but the idea is that champs don't matter hugely at bronze and silver level, just be good with one or two for each role.

    I'd suggest:
    TF, morgana mid
    Wukong, malphite, trundle, maokai, nasus top
    Warwick, fiddlesticks, master yi jungle
    Leona, blitzcrank support
    Graves adc

  106. His early game is just so weak...

  107. Top:

    Renekton, Riven, Rengar, Irelia

    Jungle: (Little exp)

    Warwick, Rek'sai, Vi, Maokai


    Ahri, Lissandra, Kassadin, Karthus, Nidalee


    Sivir, Ezreal, Jinx, Caitlyn, Vayne

    Support: (Little Exp.)

    Leona, lulu, Nami, Morganna

    This was the pool i was going for, Any thoughts?

  108. It's not a tier list, But generally a group of champions you should always be able to play in and out between nerfs and generally play well. An Example would be, For bot lane are 3 types of lanes: Poke, All in, and Sustain and you should be able to cater to all 3 types before going into ranked. Basically, This is just a general standing for something like this for ever lane, with stable reliable picks.

  109. Top - Rengar, Maokai, Sion, Leona (stfu about leo picks)
    Jg - Rengar, Sejuani
    Mid -LB, Kat, Xerath
    ADC - Sivir
    Supp - Leona, Bard, Blitz.

  110. Is Maokai a good beginner champ worth buying? I tend to like tanks, mages, and am looking to learn more about jungling, and Maokai seems to fit this bill.

  111. Swain is kinda hard since he peel a lot early with his E...
    The solution is most champion with good substain skill (Vladimir*, Renekton) or shield (Sion*, Shen, Rumble)

    *are the best imho

  112. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    She is getting a buff :D. and you can build Righteous Glory on Olaf to increase your sticking power.

  113. Josh ThurlowMarch 24, 2015

    not really. Because then your champs aren't available. You should try to find a strong champion who isn't FOTM.

  114. Ben HaertelMarch 24, 2015

    True, but hopefully your team won't feed too hard before you hit six. I think his insane jungle sustain makes up for his weak ganks early because he can stay in the jungle longer and hit six faster when an inexperienced jungler as opposed to a more "difficult" and less sustain based jungle champion. Also, it's worth mentioning that his ult has insane synergy with champions like Katarina a in a 2v1 situation (aka a gank) and a fed Katarina is always nice to have.

    I think the main value of Warwick that makes him a good "easy" jungler for one's champion pool would be his point-and-click ultimate. It's pretty hard to not notice his ult so only the most brain-dead of teams will not get that it's an initiation into a teamfight and it makes his ganks godly once he hits level 6. Getting to level 6 isn't that tough thanks to his ridiculous amounts of sustain in jungle.

    tl;dr I absolutely agree his early game sucks but with his jungle sustain even an inexperienced jungler can hit 6 quick and only in the worst of games will your team have basically lost by then ^^'

  115. Michael ArcherMarch 24, 2015

    Gotta play leo jungle, man
    For real though, in ADC you should probably try a bursty champion like Graves or Lucian
    Thresh fits in with your tanky/ allin support picks
    If you want another assassin jungler, you could try shaco. For tank jungles, Amumu's pretty good and Maokai can work as a jungler too

  116. Maokai is quite good for jungling and very good as a top laner. He's quite an easy champion but also fun and effective. Nautilus is very similar, except he is better jungle and worse top.

  117. am in Bronze let me know what you think of the champ pool. I am looking to focus more on really getting a few champs down, so I am avoiding the autobans of kata - yasuo. I list them as main and backup.
    Top: Fiora, Jayce/Quinn
    Mid: Orianna, Jayce
    Jungle: Sejuani, RekSai
    ADC, Kalista, Jinx, Vayne (vanye is here only if I see 2-3 tanks on the enemy team)
    Support: Blitz, Leona ( might add sona in here, its not a role I want to bother with so honestly can be ignored.

  118. SweepLenseMarch 24, 2015

    My pool: best(other)

    top- vlad, (garen)

    mid- Diana, (leblanc)

    jungle- Diana, nautilus, (ww, fiddle)

    adc- ashe, (sivir)

    Supp- leona, zilean (nautilus, taric)

    Favorite champs:
    Diana -is there anything similar?

  119. Kjdglskg GsdgsdsMarch 24, 2015


  120. I would advise practicing support and jungle in normals, it's useful to know at least the basics of every role. Since you have very little experience with the roles, I don't think you should be playing Lee Sin, Zyra or Nami. It's quite easy to screw up with these champions, so sticking to easier champions would be better.

    In my opinion having 4-5 champions for a main role and 2-3 for others is ideal, your champion pool seems a bit too big to me in that respect. I don't know what you would like your main role to be, so I cannot comment on that. Some other champions I don't agree with, as they are relatively hard to be effective with, are Ahri, Ezreal, Vayne, Nidalee, Kassadin and Riven. Some champions you might want to pick up are:
    Annie (top/mid)
    Pantheon and/or Sion (top/jungle)
    Malzahar and/or Morgana (mid)
    Blitzcrank and/or Sona (support)

    I hope this helps, good luck!

  121. Watersports DrewMarch 24, 2015

    Anyone know of good guides/streams to watch Rumble players? Seems like every time I try and play him I feed horribly.

  122. StokeDaddyCMarch 24, 2015

    Infidel! Kneel before Urgod!!!

  123. So I need some more champs to play in ranked right now its
    Top: Lulu, Irelia, and Cassiopeia
    Mid: Lulu, Cassiopeia, and Orianna
    Jungle(least played) Sejuani, and Skarner
    Support(Main role) Janna, Soraka, Braum

    ADC: Sivir

  124. Top- Irelia or Nasus
    Mid- Annie or Morgana
    Jungle- Vi or Amumu
    Support- Sona or Thresh
    Adc- Jinx or Caitlyn

  125. Yeah i agree with your point it's not really wrong but the frustration if 2x lanes or more are losing before lvl6 ...hmm

  126. MasterOfMetalMarch 24, 2015

    Haha i love it xD

  127. nasus never a good pick brah

  128. Michael RosekMarch 24, 2015

    I believe archetype is how it's spelled. I could be wrong in this context, but that's just how I've seen it.

  129. SSJSuntasticMarch 25, 2015

    I believe you're correct, fixed!

  130. Thanks! I'm not really new mechanically, It's just that i'm new to ranked solo que. To me, It's rather important that a champion can be flexible like Lee Sin, rather than more of a one trick pony like Ryze or Talon.

    Irelia, Renekton, Rengar
    Rengar, Irelia
    Lissandra, Irelia
    Ezreal, Caitlyn, Jinx
    Thresh, Sona

    I revised it, Since you were right that it was a little large and a bit overly mechanically intense. This is a 10 Champion pool, that is much more refined. But i feel like if they have a garen i'll be useless... (Lulu maybe as a cover up / support?)

  131. Flamestorm6March 25, 2015

    My main roles are support and jungle but my champ pool would be this.
    Support: SONA, Janna, Leona, Nami, Thresh, Annie, Zyra
    Jungle: AMUMU, Sejuani, Malphite, Wukong, Jarvan, Vi, Rammus, Volibear, Sion
    Top: WUKONG, Gnar
    Mid: ZIGGS, Heimerdinger (really don't play mid)
    ADC: EZREAL, Caitlyn
    Caps are my favourites for each role. Could people suggest good mids or adc's for me

  132. Surprised you don't play Lulu as support if you already play her in other lanes. I would add a tank to your top lane. And an assassin to your mid, preferably an ad to balance your pool.

  133. I would say you should add an ap top laner to your list. You already play Liss, and she makes for a good top laner as well ad mid. Same with your jungle. Get an ap jungler up in there. Maybe a tank ap like amumu or sejuani

  134. I main mid and top lane. Pick Priority from left to right.
    Top: Hecarim, Irelia, Fizz(Ad), Malphite
    Jungle: Fizz(Ad), Sejuani, Nautilus, Vi
    Mid: Fizz (Ad and Ap), Diana, Cass, Xerath, Azir
    Adc: Graves, Kalista, Kog, Corki
    Support: Alistar, Bard, Blitz, Thresh

  135. Dhruv NottMarch 25, 2015

    Top: Teemo and Vayne
    Mid: TF and Veigar
    ADC: Ezreal and Vayne
    Supp: Thresh Ali Blitz

    dont play jungle

  136. disisdeathwingMarch 25, 2015

    top: trynd, jax and nasus
    jg: da dyr
    mid: viktor, lissandra
    top and mid: swain
    adc: sooooo need i talk about the story where the last time i played adc i feed enemy team hard?
    support: sona

  137. disisdeathwingMarch 25, 2015

    btw ssj, isn't marksman suppose to be more sustain damage instead of burst?
    unless we are talking tri-force adc here, which do have a fair amount of burst mid game.

  138. disisdeathwingMarch 25, 2015

    jungle helps you with your map awareness, objective(monster) control and ganking, so do learn it.
    that is a pretty good list, but do you really have to use irelia mid?
    i suggest learning something like zed who combos people

  139. disisdeathwingMarch 25, 2015

    righteous glory helps.
    frozen heart+spirit visage + glory+ botrk and hydra+ boots (sell for zephyr really late game) is my build.
    you get 40% cdr with runes and masteries.
    he has an amazing lane and late.

  140. disisdeathwingMarch 25, 2015

    here is my analysis to lanes.

    TOP: the great island, occasionally with some ganks, this lane is there to just hold the top tower.
    as it is a SOLO LANE, it means
    -receives most xp(like mid)
    -receives more money(also like mid)
    generally people are either tanks, tanky mages, or ad glasscanon
    MID:easy access to both top at bot, where most the action resides.
    also a SOLO LANE.
    mages or ass-sasins go there.
    BOT: the only duo lane(not counting lane swaps)
    shares xp. Not gold though becuz adc is greedy.
    marksman: the shredder, farms everything and is squishy.
    support: as the name already said, it supports... yay
    JG: gankz and objectives.
    mostly people with natural sustain, tanky and cc.

    you want to generally have a tank+damage(like per say, nasus) on the top lane. or lots of cc, either one will do, and you also want the ability to kill towers( just like nasus) to create pressure around the map.
    mid would be get fed, roam and win, or feed, stall, proceed to win
    bot would be
    ADC: farm, kill enemy, farm kill stuff...
    SUP: wards!!!! engage, disengage heal stuff, either one will do.
    as for jg, clear camps, gank and OBJECTIVESSSS

    and if you are saying i said way too much stuff on top lane and way too little stuff on others, i main top.

  141. Top: Nasus, Darius, Cho'gath, Rengar

    Mid: Orianna, Malzahar, Xerath, Azir (stop the nerfs pls huhu), Annie

    Support: Braum, Leona, Blitzcrank, Morgana
    ADC: Ashe, Sivir, Graves, Lucian
    Jungle: Udyr, Xin Zhao, Volibear, Jax, Nunu, Amumu, Trundle

    Note these are all champs I am confident I can carry with and there are champs I really like but I can't play at a high enough level yet.
    And yeah I feel that to the people who refuse or don't want to play certain roles, aren't you missing out?

    If you aren't able to play every role then your team has a higher chance (you never know what happens during a game) of losing because you might get stuck with that role and be that "guy" who says I can't play that and you hog your teammate's lane. I think Champion pools just need you to be able to play 2-3 champs in every role in an ok standard and then you just work on whatever you care about the most.

  142. DextradoseMarch 25, 2015

    My High skill champ pool.

    Top: Nasus, Darius, Aatrox (takes a ton of practice and needs to be played perfectly but is viable), Jarven, Sion

    Jungle (My Main): Sej, Aatrox, xin, lee sin, rengar, elise, vi, zac, nidalee.

    Mid: Akali, Elise, Brand, Tf

    ADC: Jinx, vayne, Draven

    Support: Thresh, Leona, Blitz, Braum, Bard

    These are the champs I am really good at.

  143. PhoenixOrderMarch 25, 2015

    Yep, that Aatrox skill. Right Click + R = Win

  144. As a jinx main I can say: Jinx takes no skill to be really useful. turn rockets on, shoot 5 times, w, ult, dead. And thats how every lategame goes like.

  145. hmm id like to keep shen in my pool because i love the map presence of his ultimate and the way he can split push. though i could try to pick sion up as an addition to my pool since it is kind of small top,

  146. Thanks! I've been practicing and hes turned out to be pretty fun so far, I'll definitely check out Nautilus as well

  147. For top, I don't really know who to pick up as an AP over Lissandra. I'm bad at Kennen, and vlad feels totally unrewarding. Maybe something like LuLu would be fun to pick up, or rumble.

    I'm really not sure about broadening my jungle pool yet, and i think i'd rather be AD / Tanky for objective control. (At-least in the jungle)

  148. MasterOfMetalMarch 25, 2015

    Aatrox laning is suuuper easy but his teamfighting....... well i guess your team should follow up right XD

    Note to all readers: if your team does not follow up on your first dive as Aatrox DO NOT engage more than two people at once EVER (i mean... unless they are clustered with low health Q R penta XD)

  149. Warwick is definitely idiot-proof as long as you don't waste your ults. I feel like a lot of people build retarded items on him though, like Ravenous Hydra or stupid AP items not to mention occasional "ADC Warwick" builds

  150. bturner4559March 25, 2015

    Everything you said was too much....It's all random extremely basic information when you were asked what your champ pool is ....

  151. bturner4559March 25, 2015

    Wuks bettwr mid than top I feel. He loves squishy lanes and can get his 3 damage items quicker.

  152. bturner4559March 25, 2015

    Hes literally a free win? Easiest champ in the game and outscales every champ top in minutes. I literally dont play him every game only because he feels so cheap.

  153. bturner4559March 25, 2015

    Tekk has some dyrus rumble games on his channel.

  154. bturner4559March 25, 2015

    Looking at ur top Id look into wukong he does all their roles but better, smoother, safer, and easier. Build hydra, bc, lw, boots and 2 def items and u'll rek.

  155. bturner4559March 25, 2015

    They are brain dead easy roles keep doing ur thing you can literally take 90% of ur other champs and just play em support if u got to.

  156. bturner4559March 25, 2015

    Peoples champ

  157. NEVER play as karthus against an ahri

  158. SSJSuntasticMarch 26, 2015

    Marksman late game are definitely more about sustain damage instead of burst. However, most champions rush IE before attack speed, and certain champions like early Lucian and early-mid game Graves rely on their burst damage to snowball.

  159. SSJSuntasticMarch 26, 2015

    He's somewhat dependent on landing his q to be effective, which can be a bit difficult. You can pick him up if you like his playstyle, but he tends to die a lot.

  160. Cherry PrincessMarch 26, 2015

    Recommendations on my champion pool? :)
    Background info: I'm unranked (I suspect I'll die badly if i rank) and I main AD Carry. I like ranged champions. Started playing late May 2014 :) I can't play tanks well

    TOP: Teemo, Morgana(I was here before it was cool, hah) (I can't really play top) Tried Kalista at top, worked out well enough... Planning to get Riven.
    JG: I don't jg. Planning to try amumu/fiddle

    MID: Talon( I have no idea why I play him.), Morgana, Teemo, Caitlyn, Sona. Working on Ahri, Katarina, Veigar(not so much now)

    SUPPORT: Morgana, Sona. Working on: Blitzcrank, Bard.

    ADC: Ashe, Vayne, Kalista, Caitlyn, Occasionally MF. Working on: Jinx, Ezreal. Can play both fairly decently, just with less consistency.

    oh ok, i see what u mean.

  162. I have tried wukong but am not a fan, I prefer fiora in this area and i dont see him filling the same role as quinn or jayce. Peraps I am missing something can you elaborate on why you think he is better smoother safer and easier

  163. I would suggest trying sejuani as a tank jungler, with a lot of CC and a nice dash escape that is not dependent on having a monster to grab onto on the other side of the wall

  164. how is it that everyone here is good enough to master like 5 champs per role? am i the only one who needs to focus on less champs

  165. why not focus on less chaps and get really good with just a few per role like 2 even if you are lower division or maybe 3 if higher where ppl might know your champ pool cos there's so few players?

  166. I like to stick to a fairly small champion pool to ensure I can maintain a decent skill level (for my elo) on each champion. I main jungle, with mid and support as my other prefered roles. Midlane I play zed, ahri, leblanc, yasuo and xerath. Jungle I play lee sin, rengar, kha'zix, sejuani, rek'sai, vi, j4, pantheon and vi. Support I main thresh but also play blitzcrank, janna and morgana. I feel janna should be added to the easy support picks because she is pretty easy to play and brings great sustain and disengage :).

  167. I kinda worded this wrong I just wanted 1 more jung to play and 1 more adc

  168. your jungles seem to be tanks so i would suggest amumu as he is tanky does good dmg with his % hp dmg and has that AOE stun, as for your ADC theres really noone like sivir so maybe say more about what you like with her or dont like or what you are looking for in an ADC, when you want to spike in power, is mobility important, caster or AA based etc

  169. agreed on nasus, he's only good if your team can win without you for the first 35-40 min after which he is a monster. The poine being the other team can simply close out the game long before that stage or if your team wins have you really contributed to it by sitting in top lane and farming up your Q stacks, then coming down for the last few TF to feel like hey i am invincible so let me clean up a fight we were already winning

  170. you are not giving much to go on here with your mid and ADC, can you please list what exactly you like about htose champs in their respective roles and say are you looking for something similar or something completely different

  171. Gabriel Thomazine DamettoMarch 26, 2015

    try top and junglers at free week, there are like 5 free every week

  172. Gabriel Thomazine DamettoMarch 26, 2015

    try fizz top and get a stronger ap top, like vlad/kennen

  173. Gabriel Thomazine DamettoMarch 26, 2015

    he's joking guys, these guys dont take pretty much any skills to be really effective (except maybe vayne or draven)

  174. Gabriel Thomazine DamettoMarch 26, 2015

    lol try'n create another acount only adc and/or watch some videos...

    try graves, sivir and tristan as adc, they are pretty easy and strong

    u should get moar jg options and support (maybe initiators)

  175. Gabriel Thomazine DamettoMarch 26, 2015

    then play jungle

  176. Gabriel Thomazine DamettoMarch 26, 2015

    tristana adc rocks

  177. Gabriel Thomazine DamettoMarch 26, 2015

    its ok I guess

    maybe try a top tanker or split pusher

  178. Eduardo Nio ConcepcionMarch 27, 2015

    xin zhao is a pretty easy jungler to pick up with strong early ganks and can solo dragon at lv3-4

  179. Why not Warwick for easy jungle? He doesn't require pots, has a decent clear speed, an on-demand suppress and has lots of sustain (Hell even getting lifesteal quints are overkill). Also it's very easy to gank with him as well target enemy team carries during fights. o-o

  180. Champs with resets are very strong in team fights so it's not a bad idea to learn how to play them. Also they reward you for being aggressive so they can help you hone your decision making. Like Kha'zix, Katarina, Tristana, Darius, Kalista, Akali, and Irelia.

    As for tanks, I'd say you should learn how to play them at least. Because the ones who decide how the fights are going to go are the tank-line. They're the ones who are going to be using a lot of crowd control by either protecting you or catching the enemy back line off guard. If you want a simple tank to play, I'd suggest you learn how to play Mao'kai he's very simple but if you play him right he can do a lot of damage just by himself.

    Another good champ would be Leona, since literally 3/4 of her kits are all cc. stun, armor/mr buffer, short suppress gap closer, and an aoe stun. She literally is made for protecting carries. She can protect anyone she wants to protect so well if you know how to play her, your carries are most likely not going to ever die (unless they're retarded and jump in a 1v5 when they're not fed).

    I'd prefer if you want to learn a champ that can carry easily, learn Annie. Her burst is ridiculous and even without items she does a lot of damage pre-6. She can even teach you how to last hit because of her q giving full mana back on last hits and reduces it to a 2 second cool down. Even her stuns by itself are useful and does tons of damage if you can land tibbers stun with Luden's Echo. It might require you to learn your timing, but even when she's behind she's a faceroll because she can catch up by getting kills just by those ridiculous aoe stuns.

  181. Learn Zac, he's not banned but I'd say he's underrated as a jungler but he also got buffed with cinder being meta right now. He has a two knock up skills and a huge gap closing slingshot that can be abused to hover over drag and steal with smite, he has a passive that can be teleported on, and when he's hp tanky he becomes HUGEEE. You should see how big he is with 6k hp, it's hilarious. Also he does damage even without ap items because of his w doing % hp damage.

    As for top, learn how to play Mao'kai. He's fairly simple and his kit is strong. An ultimate that reduces damage for the team and charges damage, a suppress gap closer, a slow and a knock back. He's very useful for team fights and he can lead a team fight into an easy win if you know how to play it well.

  182. Jungler's common tasks are to kill monsters in the jungle and help other lanes to kill the enemy ASAP, be it a fighter, tank, assassin, mage, and usually a marksman-type or support-type aren't fit in jungle rolls, but everything depends on how the player plays it (lolz).

    Not really... The reason why you want to kill the jungle creeps and want to kill the enemies are more simple than that. It's map control. Look at the map, and compare the lanes and the jungle. See how big the jungle is? That's what you're in right now. You are to control it, be it the enemy's jungle or yours. Once you control that it's literally good game, unless your team throws so hard you let them win. You are also assigned AS A SIDE-OBJECTIVE to help lanes be maintained into your favor by ganking so that your team is strong enough for bigger objectives. May it be towers or global buffs.
    So the REAL two things that are important when playing the jungle are: Objective control and Map Control.

  183. mos deadlyMarch 27, 2015

    learn swain and cho top. with those two you dont need any more champions on top

  184. mos deadlyMarch 27, 2015

    add swain to your pool

  185. disisdeathwingMarch 27, 2015

    the new tristana is not that easy, i found i like the old one better.

  186. Ok here's mine, I think it's pretty diverse:

    Top: Rumble, Swain, Maokai, Darius, Yorick, Kayle
    Jungle: Jarvan IV, Nocturne, Rek'Sai, Vi, Rengar, Nautilus, Sejuani, Amumu, Olaf
    Mid: Orianna, Xerath, Syndra, LeBlanc, Zed, Kayle, Talon, Diana, Katarina, Ziggs, Annie, Ezreal
    ADC: Caitlyn, Draven, Sivir, Vayne, Kog'Maw, Jinx
    Support: Thresh, Vel'Koz, Janna, Nami, Leona, Braum

  187. Flamestorm6March 28, 2015

    For the junglers what I like about them is their ability to go all in a team fight and become a major disruptive force. The supports I like their good peeling ults that can either engage team fights like a Crescendo or disrupt a dive like monsoon. Mainly I'd say a high presence in team fights tends to be a favourite trait of mine. So not something that's very split push like Tryndamere or Zed

  188. Flamestorm6March 28, 2015

    I tend to like champs based around team fights and sieges so I like Ziggs and Ezreal for their big Aoe ults that can deal big damage in teamfights. So more aoe mids and ADCs or mids focused on teamfighting

  189. Flamestorm6March 28, 2015

    Please disregard this clicked reply on the wrong post

  190. Funny you say that. I've been spamming Swain as of late

  191. siege ADC'S i would suggest jinx then, use her in rocket mode ouotside of that the runaans build of kalista is nice but takes time t get used to and you need to remap the sttack move click in your ini file to use her properly. As for sieging mids with a TF ult try ori, she is my main for mid and is always relevant with that ult

  192. Hopefully someone will comment on this as I would love suggestions...I went from silver 3 to bronze 4 and I am having SUCH a hard time trying to climb back up....went from 80 lp to 0 in a day. -_- left to right is my priority pick. Again...would love some help!

    Top: Shyvana, Irelia
    Jungle: Evelynn , Elise, Sejuani
    Mid: Lux, CassiOPeia, Ahri, Zyra
    ADC: Miss fortune, Ashe, Caitlyn
    Support: Leona, Karma, Janna, Nami

  193. I think I ran out of characters as it would not let me play style kind of varies depending on each game but I am better with AP Champions I believe overall. I am in the process of learning:
    Top: none
    Jungle: none
    Mid: Evelynn *Sleeper op like the sejuani mid*
    Adc: Sivir, Kalista *****but I'm wondering if I should pick up draven or varus because they are similar to miss fortune play style??? If someone would like to follow up on this that would be greatly appreciative.
    Support: Sona

  194. gh05tpantsMarch 28, 2015

    Strong pool there. For going in to ranked focus on your favourite 2 champs in each role with a couple more in your chosen specialization.

  195. gh05tpantsMarch 28, 2015

    OK here's mine.

    Top: Shyvana, Morgana
    Jungle: Nocturne, Shyvana
    Mid (main): Katarina, Ahri, Karthus, Morgana
    ADC: Ashe
    Support: Leona, Morgana, Janna

    I want to add an ADC and a brawly top laner. I usually play Shyvana as a tank.

  196. Tribal bunnyMarch 28, 2015

    ADC: cait sivir graves lucian - good mix of burst sustain and range
    Support: thresh braum janna- a mix of tanks and protection
    mid: ziggs xerath- im a big fan of long ranged poke mages since im used to being a backliner
    top: renekton maokai - great tanks one is good for damage the other is good for peel
    jungle: amumu- my least played role but i prefer to set people up rather than kill them myself when i tank

    thoughts on my pool?

  197. Tribal bunnyMarch 28, 2015

    try graves hes simple and bursty

  198. Cherry PrincessMarch 28, 2015

    I think I'd pick up Leona, she looks really fun :)

  199. gh05tpantsMarch 29, 2015

    You've kinda said it all yourself. The only thing I can see missing is an AD mid, but if you don't play much mid it isn't necessary.

  200. gh05tpantsMarch 29, 2015

    I'm thinking about him, or maybe Lucian.
