I was checking highly ranked people playing my fav champ to check builds and masteries/runes, through a site, and I observed that they played over 50% of their games with 1-2 champs. As a result the 3rd champ in line had a huge difference in times used for ranked play. How is that possible since in ranked games u are supposed to fill roles according to counters and your turn to choose ?

Thanx in advance

There are a couple of reasons:
-They are well known and are allowed to play only a single role.

-In high elo people are more considerate of choosing a role and will let you go mid if you say you're best at it.

-They play in 5-man teams which results in everyone having a role.

-They have gotten so good with their champs that counters don't matter as much. Counters are mostly soft anyway and skill is most often prevelant in games.

Thanks for respecting the pick order and not being a whiny "I said it first!" ***** btw.

The higher you go in ranked, to more cooperative people are with role-picking. And you don't meet things like O, IDK HOW TO SUPPORT, WELL GG FOR YOU GUYS CUZ IMA FEED NOW. And other stuff like that.

They may play 1-2 roles but it doesn't mean they don't know how to play others. At lower ranks you have to know more than 1 role and it makes you better at playing overall. When you get to higher ranks you will take everything you learned from every role and maximize your gameplay of any role you want to main.

All in all, high rank players have gone through the same struggle to learn in order to get where they are today.

The rest of what I would have posted was already said by others :).

I think it's more like they've found "their" champ. The champ they prefer to play, and have most fun playing.

As an example i've picked akali into garen top because "i felt like playing akali"
