I am starting to form my team of champs for ranked. I know that a person should theoretically have at least three champs s/he excels at for each role. Seeing as I would like to main ADC I intend to have a few more for that particular slot, though only three at this moment. Without further ado, here is my idea for my champ lineup.

Top Jarvan IV Good tanky Brusier, ULT is great in the right comp
Nidalee Lots of Poke
Malphite A real beast if played well, Though he is banned often. I would love to be able to play him if he slips through

Jungle Jarvan IV Similar to above
Skarner I like his ult as a good peel for an out of position player, plus his ganks are great
Warwick I started jungling warwick at lvl 7, I have a fairly decent feel for him

Mid Morgana hard to counter, I can play her well
Lux Ult is a beast
Zyra Better support, but along the same strains as the above two

Support Morgana
Lux
Zyra
I have these three because they can become late game carries, it allows me to double up on a role and have a great way to finish out games, they all have a snare plus a good aoe ult

ADC Ashe Good initiate if the team is lacking, also first main adc
Caitlyn Great harass, great damage as well
Miss Fortune Ult is extremely useful, otherwise plays similar to other adcs


Please give thoughts and opinions, am i missing someing that i need... maybe not specific characters but those specific roles. I have plenty of time before I start doing ranked but i wanted some opinions on what i am working on as a lineup

What is ADC? Does it mean bot? Sorry, I'm new to LoL and it's not in the terminology guide

Attack Damage Carry, so yeah pretty much. I suppose you could also apply it to a melee AD like Tryndamere or Master Yi but people don't generally use it that way.

@OP If you want to pick up other ADs I'd suggest you try out Ezreal and Graves for their early burst and general strength/safety. I also think that Draven is very powerful in solo queue since he's pretty much the strongest early game AD there is and he doesn't really fall off. For mid you'll be fine sticking with Lux, she's pretty OP in my opinion. I don't know that much about what's good in jungle/top at the moment but your picks there seem alright to me.

Yeah, it normally refers to a ranged champ that can put out tons of damage, normally just through basic attacks

Warwick jungle is really hit and miss. I've won ranked games with him, but it's so easy to get counter-jungled or shut down early. Have you thought of learning how to jungle Amumu, Malphite, or Jarvan? They're pretty strong picks at the moment.

Of course, Amumu and Malphite are commonly banned.

I think you guys should try out Taric for support with your team comp.

i would suggest picking up an AD Assassin type mid such as ZED or Talon.

lux i think is one of the strongest mids at the moment though.. i dont know anyone that actually counters her really well

@ boythinks Yeah that is probably a good idea. Zed is a good top lane correct?

@ eddie/xylarboden I chose my supports specifically because of the way they play and that they can be used as mid champs too. I don't want to be stuck in a game with a troll trying to be support. I would rather have the ability to build into a carry to help finish the game.

@jhoijhoi I didn't realize malphite was a good jungler. I will probably learn that as well, seeing as I have him in my list of top laners. And I do have J4 in my junglers. As far as amumu, I find he gets countered fairly easy and I dislike his stun being a skillshot. I suppose I should just get over it, but J4 seems just as well and I don't have to worry about him being banned out every single game

@luther Yes, I intend to learn all of them. But since I plan on maining ADC i figued i would just get three that i am currently good at and learn the other roles required for solo-que first.

Hopefully that helps everyone. Please tell me if I am wrong.
