So what do you think are good bans? Some of my friends still have a hard time choosing ones and I'm itching to know what are some good bans myself. Comment below and give out reasons why.
Here are my top 5 bans (Not in a certain order):
1.) Kassadin: This guy is nearly impossible to gank Pre-6 due to his 3-5 second blink and even when it's on cooldown, he's got an AOE slow. Not to mention he's got a pretty annoying silence that will mess up your AP carry mid.
2.) Morgana: Yet another AP carry, but her spell shield can practically counter any AP carry mid. Not to mention her passive gives her great sustain, mana is the only problem, but nothing like a blue buff won't fix it. Her ult is devastating in team fights (And also it can also sense stealthed champions).
3.) Shaco: One of the best jungler out there, IMO. He'll gank for days and can get dragon by level 6. He'll make you waste your gold by buying wards and oracles. Although he isn't that great late game in team fights, a guardian angel can fix that problem along with a well placed Hallucination clone. He can melt down your AD carry within seconds, and if the other team is stupid, they'll chase him for such a long time while his allies are split pushing or coming to his aid, eventually you'll just be all alone in their jungle hearing his laughs as you die. He's exactly what he looks like, and annoying-*** clown. (I had so much to write about this guy because he's one of my most played champs, I try not to ban him so I can grab him before the enemy team does)
4.) Amumu: A tank that can still manage to deal damage while staying immortal at the same time. He has a ton of CC and his ult can change a team fight. Not to mention he has an ability that will deal damage based on a percentage of a person's maximum HP, so he's able to deal damage to tanks as well.
Edit: A lot of you guys have brought up some excellent points with Shen, as most of you have said, whether he loses the lane or not, he will always end up carrying his team.
6.) Cassiopeia: Awesome mid, she has great sustain due to her passive and also has a lot of mobility, increasing her movement speed and decreasing her enemies. When she has her ult, it can easily allow her to 2v1 when a jungler comes to gank. Not to mention her ult can do work in team fights, and even if they're not looking at her, her stun is immense.
