Normally I write text guides. Don't feel like it. Nope. Sick of people messaging going "Your style should be a stylier style than this styleless style void."

Essentially getting at the point of


Yeah. I'm lazy so I just captioned over one that had a caption. Yo dawg... I heard you like captions in your captions...

Anywho... This one is gonna have a bit more flavor and styly styleness.

SEASON 4 BALANCED ADC

Play Style - Trade based setup for your average every day bottom lane match up. Able to sustain a bit better at the cost of a bit of early damage potential.

Pros:
Good damage while still able to survive the average trade
Bonus armor/magic resist makes the few defense items you buy worth more
Tried, trusty, and as true to season 3 staples as we can be


Cons:
You're going to be running what pretty much everyone else is running, no surprises
Still squishy, as carries tend to be
Low utility

Cons:
Your damage kinda sucks
Can't farm as well

Enough damage to keep your ganks painful

Fun fact - Riftborne doesn't play any AP junglers

Feel free to make a suggestion for AP jungler masteries. I have no idea. I mean... I could guess, but so can you. I don't wanna get screamed at for throwing something up here which I have no expertise on.

SEASON 4 TANKY SUPPORT

Play Style - Pure tank. You're there to eat damage and initiate fights. Works best on Leona, Alistar, Nautilus, and Galio.

Picture yourself pretty much as this.

Pros:
Can't die. Too stronk.
Immovable supports tend to have fed carries
Basically do what you want, when you want to do it

Cons:
ZERO damage
No utility
If you're not playing as a CC machine, you're useless
