List of champions others find good that i disagree with


Rek'Sai

why? because reksai isn't very strong in a teamfight, she has only one pop up and then some damage. this means that if you build tank you don't do any damage and if you build damage and anybody cc's you then you just die. I feel like reksai is only truely good as a split pusher in the mid/late game and that is often too hard to pull off in solo que.


Guide Top

Top Laners

Irelia
Irelia as all of us solo que players know can carry games. Her lane phase is safe and she does well when a jungler comes to gank for her. 2 second stun on a 4/5 second cooldown is aggrevating. Her ulti does suprising damage and her true damage is great. As soon as she hits a trinity force she can start steamrolling. Toss in that she cannot be cc'd and is super easy to last hit with. definitely top tier in the right hands.
Kennen
Kennen is very strong right now, He is easy to lane has a single target stun every 10 seconds, has tank stats when he e's, and his ultimate can stun every member on the enemy team, as well as you can use your W while ulting. He can just run to the backline stunning people along the way and then kill the enemy adc. With only one skillshot he is super strong


hecarim
The horse man is good right now, While he can be a little tougher to lane if you just q and auto for trades your normally fine. Where i think this guy shines is in two places. One is in teamfights and the other is his pushing and roam power. He can get on your carries very easily and crush them. Way too tanky and way too much damage and way too fast. As well he pushes lanes crazy fast and if he gets closed on he just runs away stupid fast. So hard to lock down and catch.


Sion
Sion is a lane bully and a brick wall, If built and runes correctly also does massive daamge. Its just stupid really. He is never a bad pick. He has engage, he can escape ganks with his ulti, and his E harass in lane is ridiculous. The only downfall of sion is it can often be hard to get to the enemies backline in a teamfight. So if vayne is on that enemy team you may be hurting.


Cho-Gath
What can i say? This dudes just way too strong right now, Put a ROA on him and crush. He has way too much health with max stax and at max cooldown its like 45 seconds. He also has a super long silence, great minion clear, and and aoe knock up. His only downfall is he can get ganked semi easily. But now that top laners take camps then tp top with wards it don't matter at all.


Gnar
While gnar has fallen off a little he is still really strong. his laning is a bit weaker but you can always play it safe and boomerang farm then just build tank and still do ridiculous amount of damage.

Mid Laners


Xerath
This guy is super good, his only downside is mobility so divers can get on you a little, but if you position properly its no problem. His range and damage is stupid. Just absolutely "balanced".

Leblanc
leblanc isn't your hard teamfight carry, but i've seen some people make her so. You basically kill your lane opponent. Then if you know how to ward and read a map you go single out people around the map and kill them as well. I don't personally play leblanc, but i've been hit with **** loads of damage by her and the few times i've played her i did really well even though idk how.

Kennen
Again, kennen OP - i suggest arctic skin

Cho-gath
again what does cho gath not do great? everything i said before and i thought of another great thing about him. Jungler can't smite? noproblem cho-gath secures dragons and barons. No jungler needed.


Guide Top

Jungle


Vi
Everybody knows vi's R makes her really good. But what you don't realize is if you max q that **** will hit for 600 damage and if they clump it hits everybody. You can literally Q, E, E and do 1k damage to 5 people if they are all humping each other.

Jarvan
Jarvan is still strong despite his E nerf. He clears decently and his ultimate dumps noobs, if you can keep track of flash timers. Also if you land your e - q gg ganks.

Sejuani - sejuani is sleeper op, her w does tons of damage and she gets really tank with an aoe slow, a knockup, and oh baby that ultimate.

Pantheon
My man in a banana hammock pantheon. he takes like zero damage from the jungle. No skill shots. His lvl2 gank, lvl3 gank, lvl4 gank, lvl5 gank, and lvl6 gank are super strong.

Rengar
His pre 6 ganks aren't the best, but your ability to pick people off and instantly is just too much for uncoordinated teams to handle. A very easy champion to start snowballing on. As well he has decent jungle clear and sustain. One of the jungles you can lvl3 gank on before backing.

Cho-Gath
play, Cho, dude wins games.


Guide Top

ADC


Draven
HE does so much damage with the same items as other champions. While he isnt mobile with dashes he is super fast. His ulti is good and his e can be clutch. But above all holy F*&K that damage.

Jinx
Jinx shreds objectives. Lets you do barons and dragons in a jif. Also super mega death rocket can pick up kills on stragglers as well as rockets op aoe dmg in teamfights. Her slow can set up skillshots and her traps can be really nice against and with ganks.

Kalista
My support sucks..... shes trying to suicide... SAVED. well thats annoying as hell to play against. Her mobility makes her a really hard adc to kill if played right as well.

Graves
Short range is meh, but buckshot is nice in lane and he can finish kills with his R nicely. But mostly ******** about graves. Smokescreen. I HATE GETTING SMOKESCREENED. OMG. turns a great player into a blind player. smokescreen and flash over a wall or dash into the brush and when they are out they dunno what happened. Its like every graves is Houdini or something.

Vayne
Shreds tanks and objectives and her stealth plus mobility and E make her a 1v5 carry if you get slightly ahead and know what you are doing.


Guide Top

Supports


Annie
There is no counterplay besides cleanse, who nobody takes, and qss who nobody buys. You just flash tibber and win. And her roam is fantastic as well. Flash w lvl3 mid and snowball the game. also her auto attack range is ridiculous for lane. I've seen people take +20 ad lvl1 on annie support and just auto attack the enemy adc out of lane. ridiculous.

Thresh
Thresh hooks can be just as good as blitz if your team is more poke oriented. Flays troll SOO many skills. so many jumps and dashes get wrecked by thresh. Box zones well and lantern can help a HAM teammate who got caught out.

Blitz
we all know if you can land those fists you win games. Hook and kill their adc. Roam and kill their mid. THen top. Then mid then top. you get the picture.

Kennen
again, kennen is op. kennen supports are 4 for 4 in my solo q games this season. He's just too strong. i've seen coin and targons on him. Even dorans shield and ruby crystal start.

Leona
How about that cc. mmmmmm. Eat it enemy team. Leona's engage potential makes her very strong. As well as great for catching and adds another tank to a team, where in solo que its often th at you won't have one because everybody wants to be the carry. While she can often be hard to do well in lane with, because there isn't that much synergy in low tier solo que between adc and support, if your jungle comes and you land your skills there is profit to be had. As well with the current support roam solo q meta she's one of the betters.

Thanks for reading!

Hope this helps you out. Remember these champs are in my opinion the top Tier champs in each lane.

If you want any of that please contact me with a request and I will make a guide for your specific inquisition.
