I win over gp's with irelia. I win over irelia's with my gp... oh the questions!!!

I will though always have irelia as my safepick, and gp my "tough lane, better just own him in lane"-pick.

Every top laner has its counters, some have a lot, some have a few.
Top tier I would say: Olaf, Gangplank, Vladimir, Tryndamere, Riven and Yorick

EDIT: My tier 2 would be: Udyr, Warwick, Irelia, Wukong, Renekton

This is pretty good. I'm not sure how I feel about Vlad top, but enough of these are good that I'll give a vote of support.

I think Olaf is tier 2 though.

Also I think Akali is tier 1 or 2.

Ok, don't you think Akali is countered too easily? And why would you put Olaf in tier 2? Vladimir is really strong in top lane btw, very few can counter him effectively.

Akali has some counters but in her "Win" match ups she just ****ing DUNKS them so hard that she's tier 1. She's capable of snowballing the game, which means that every top lane player should learn her just in case you see someone lock a "Free win for Akali" champion.

So good. I'm terrible at Akali and I still play her, because I know when I learn her it will benefit me greatly.

I would put Olaf in tier 2 because the jungle rework really ****ed him. He wants to 1v1 and have a long even sustained fight where he can leech life with W/lifesteal item and bomb away with E. That was feasable before, but now the jungle got reworked and people are in your damn lane all day D:

I think Vlad is really good against "Slow starter" top lanes, but he gets **** on by Akali and Tryndamere and a few others as well. Most highly aggressive tops with a gap closer and flash can dunk Vlad. Taking Ignite is the slap in the face. Graves and GP would probably do pretty well too, but I'm just guessing, I don't see too much Vlad top lane. Tryn and Akali are the safe bets vrs him ^_^

If Vlad goes Heal/ghost though, or maybe even Heal/Ignite, I can see him being able to win a lot of lanes, and at least being able to lane against 70-80% of top lane picks, which means he's a solid and fairly safe pick.

Shyvanna is good, but can be countered.
