As far as I know, Singed is only picked if the other team is going to give you a safe early game. Singed's late game is monstrous, but his laning phase really sucks against a lot of champions, which is one of the reasons that he's sometimes used in jungle (pretty good ganks too).

And if you're sending a ranged top, you might as well make it a real AD carry. Graves top is actually surprisingly annoying.
Thanks to Fatelblade for the sig!

Since I don't play a lot of top, I won't go and name off match ups but at this elo, I honestly never see those champions like Nasus, Singed, Twitch just because people here stick to the usual meta. It'll definitely be a interesting match but nah. As you saw from my last ss, everything was standard picks (except from the Yi).

Tops are usually strong ones like Irelia; Riven, Yorick, Vlad, Olaf, Udyr, Kennen, Lulu, etc. TheBryant, my duo queue partner around 1940elo~ and top laner for team Twice Fried Rice said that "Riven is the most broken and strongest top champion for Solo Queue because she snowballs so hard and one kill turns into four more in ten minutes." So yeah, just food for thought for any potential top laners out there that want to climb the elo ladder!

edit: I can ask him about Singed, Nasus, Twitch etc top for you if you'd like to hear his response lol

@the riven comment, good to know! Been looking for a new top so I guess I'll set my eyes in that direction

@the edit, just from what I know I would never expect much positive about nasus or Twitch, but just for giggles I would indeed love to hear it
Thanks goes to JEFFY40HANDS for a gorgeous Karma sig
Hey, you should help me on acquiring Medieval Twitch!! :D

NinjaGinge, this is basically what he said. In this current meta game and compared to the champions that I listed above like Vlad, Riven etc, those champions are honestly weak and not up to par. However in the end, top lane is all about match ups. Even in the end, the strongest picks get countered or has to go against some unfavored match up because that's literally what top lane is. A counterpick fest. Hope that helps you out a bit!

Also since there wasn't a lot of "giggle factor" in there for you, I'll add in a quote word for word what he said on Skype. "What if you pick Nasus? Some ******* just picks Garen and you won't get any CS." :p

It's funny because Riven solo top looses to Singed.

Tanks>Brusers>AD carries>Tanks in top lane.

I don't play at a mechanical skill high enough to play at 1900 but my knowledge is about 1500 at least. :P

Again, I can't confirm since I don't play top enough but that match up does sound like it'd be in Singed's favor if I played it out in my head. But yeah basically moral or main point is that common and strong picks like Riven etc are so strong and should be feared but even those "OP" champs get countered. OP Shen always banned gets raped by Udyr, etc etc. COUNTERPICKFESTALLDAYERRYDAY

I'm pretty sure every other page has at least one screenshot. Literally one page before this has my most recent (1916) game.
