Hey mates, how are you doing?

Well, like the 90% of you (I think), i have been watching, reading and learing a bit the new itemas and masteries that are coming for the S3...The I realiced that this changes, combined with the new jungle, can bring a different Metagame.

I am not talking just about the actual meta of 1+1+2+jungler...I am talking about, maybe, a change in the lanes (AP to top again, for example), or see champions that during S2 were out (Urgot, Pantheon...)

What do you think about it?

Lanes are unlikely to change unless one role becomes excessively strong/weak.

What about 1/2/1 jungle. Having a support in the mid lane would be nice especially with someone like soraka that buffs an AP laner.

AP carry gets less experience and levels slower. Support is unable to effectively zone a lone AP opponent due to the short lane. AD is left to 1v2 enemy bot lane, gets zoned from farm and can't scale into late game.

I'm thinking ADC can possibly top because of supposedly less jungle pressure + Flash/Barrier for summoners or sth.

just because it got safer to be in a top lane doesn't make a huge difference, it will still be the easiest lane to gank, and a solid roaming mid would shut down that idea entirely unless it was one of the ADCs that can safely top already I'd think.

I really don't think the lanes will change, only the champions that play those lanes.

For example, I'm still expecting a 1-1-2 and jungle, but maybe something like AD Carry top, Support and AP Carry bot, and Bruiser mid.

Thanks to jhoijhoi and LaCorpse for the amazing sigs!

The thing is, this would be worse in every way then the current setup. AD carries are vulnerable alone, countered by a lot of things early game and need money, not levels. AP carries are much more self-reliant, they need levels to be effective and can't roam if they're in bot lane. There's actually a lot more reasons relating to the length and shape of lanes but I'm too lazy to get into that right now, ask me later if you want.

I've put some thought into this in fact and any setup of lanes which includes every role would be inferior to the current setup. The only lane that could possibly change is top; already you sometimes see AP or AD champions there and it's the lane with the most variety in picks.

In other words Riot would have to literally make a class clearly overpowered or clearly non-viable in order for things to really change.
