Generally, this is a very often asked question. Who to ban at solo queue to the best effect?

As far as I know the game, the best champs in solo queue are early game stompers, which can get with that into lategame and carry then the game. Most of the time, these are the junglers. For me, the list would be:

Darius
Jax
Olaf
Riven
Xin Zhao

These 5 champs will get bruisers which have the power to carry out of the jungle and can gank well earlygame. They cause for any lane trouble and generally win solo queue games. And if they get ahead through ganks, they are unstoppable. Aswell, they can all go top lane.

I would generally ban atleast 2 of them. The 3. ban would be a fotm or some other **** which totally dominates his lane atm.

Who would you ban?

I always ban

Nautilus
Blitzcrank
Alistar or Soraka

They just have so much CC and utility, it's crazy.

I don't ban Shen because I find him extremely average since the global ult nerf and all the nerfs he suffered from

Morgana is so predictable, it's not even funny. Her ult can be annoying, but if you have ward and stay all together, she's not as gamebreaking as most people seem to believe. She is highly overrated IMO.

Kassadin is complete thrash unless he's stupidly fed, as far as I'm concerned.

Shaco is overall terrible.

I don't even know why people ban Riven. Laning vs her isn't that hard, and she falls off pretty badly late game, just like Olaf IMO

Olaf falls off too much late game to deserve a ban

Jax sure is annoying in lane (I know he's bad, but I wouln't be able to win a lane vs that ****er to save my life) but he also falls off pretty badly late game

Darius is a Garen v.2.0. The only useful thing about Darius (just like Garen) is his ult, wich is only useful at getting kills. He is thrash in my dictionnary. Even Kassadin is more useful than him, since Kassadin can at least silence. Darius has nothing. Except an ult. Would you ban Garen? No? Then why are you banning Darius? He's Garen's clone. And just like Garen, he falls off so hard late game, it's not even funny.

I sometime ban Malphite too. His ult is an excellent engaging tool. Just his ult makes him a worthy ban IMO. His overall kit is very good too.

I only ban Soraka when I'm tired of seing her. She's in every freaking game, and she's such a boring champion, that after 2-3 game of seing her in a row, if I'm the one banning, I'll ban her. I hate playing with or agains't her.

P.S. All of this is in my opinion of course.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

Olaf falls of lategame? You never had an Olaf which ran through your whole team, killing your carries and walking away like nothing happend? Olaf's weakness is his midgame.

Jax not only stomps solo queue atm, he even stomps competetive. He is one of the best champs in the game atm.

Riven combines high damage with great mobility. Also smart people will know that damage isn't anything and will build her more tanky.

Darius, he has some similar thinks to Garen, but he can build full tank and still 3-4 shot your carries (talking about falling off, so stupid..). His earlygame is aswell better as Garen and he jungles very efficient. Also, his pull is way better than Garen's silence and he completly ignores armor. His passive, which is basically a free Ignite, deals magic damage so it is hard to itemize against him. In the lane, you waste his potential to completly shut down any lane and the enemy jungler just through his damage, which is pretty easy at solo queue. Play him as a jungler for free elo.

If you don't ban Darius, you do something wrong. Even if you know how to counter him, if only 1 or 2 of your team don't know, he will get fed and snowball extremly out of control. With a level advanatege, he stomps basically any champ in the game.

Just watch Stonewall playing Darius at solo queue, he never played it before, now, by nearly only playing Darius all the time he is already at 1800 and that with ease. Even pros show that this is true.

I dunno why people ban Darius. I'll just counter him with someone like Garen.

My bans are usually the "standard" 1200 ELO bans.
Morgana, Shen, ect.

Not banning Kassadin anymore because I can just walk over him with Soraka.

I'll probably be banning a bit more BLitzcrank though because that grab is ****in stupid.

Nobody bans Nautilus at ~1200 so I'll continue to play him, win games.

I really hate a good Olaf.
If he guns towards me as Graves, I'm probably never going to get away simply because that ult is ********. True damage, low cooldown skill as well as a small heal and a chasing tool allows him to be ridiculous as soon as endgame hits.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Olaf is insane endgame, and a good damage dealer after like lvl 4 or so. Two lvls in e is all it takes early game.

I would ban Alistar, Shen, Morgana, Darius... It's not that I can't counter these guys, but I can't counter all and most can't. Sadly enough they can't. Same with Kassadin. If even 1 don't know how to counter Kassadin he will get fed.
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.
