Hello,

I am trying to get into League, but I have not found a champion that I really enjoy playing, so far. What makes this difficult is that I haven't played any MOBAs before, so I don't have a "playstyle" that can guide me on which one I might like. Any advice for this?

Thanks in advance and sorry for the bother,
Fruxo

It's really more about what you prefer, not what the Moba prefers. Let's take me for example, We have 5 roles, 1 of which is the Jungle. Even though i'm a Mid main at heart, Jungle is my second best by far. In that role I have one specific champion that I love to play all the time, Vi. Now the reason I started to main her is because I enjoyed her kit, her playstyle and to me she was generally just a fun carry champion.

So my advice would be, find a lane that you enjoy, if it's Jungle/Top/Mid/ADC or Support, doesn't matter. Find one that you truly enjoy to play in, then after you've found it, start to look at champions that plays in that role. Doing this I personally think you're going to find a champion that you really like. :)
Thanks to Jovy for the sig!

My advice is: try as much champions as you can from the weekly free rotation. You can also look at ability previews from champions. That last way is how I found my main champion: Maokai. He looked cool, so I checked his abilities and fell in love with his kit.

It can take some time to find the right champion/playstyle, so I would try as much as possible and most important: have fun!

Don't know how I would do that without it being a disaster for my team.

You can play blinds, it's there for the sole purpose of learning champions and learning the game. If people flame you there, just ignore them, it's a waste of time trying to talk to them in a gamemode where you're supposed to learn.

Like @ Fruxo said, normals are the way to learn new champions. Everyone can have a bad game. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. I still remember the game where I first timed Irelia mid against a Katarina. Went 1/12, but still learned something.

If your team is toxic just mute them. Most of the time they aren't reasonable. If you still feel uncomfortable, games vs bots can help. No pressure and easier opponents.

Which champions have you tried out and didn't like? And is there a particular role you're enjoying the most right now? :)

I have played mostly top: Poppy, Dr. Mundo and Singed. The occasional support game as Soraka or Morgana.

Looks like you're sticking to tanks/safe picks; maybe that's why you haven't found someone you really like? Maybe you could try out some more aggressive picks and see if you mesh better with them. Bot lane, Morgana is a nice transition to Lux or Brand (also AP, but with more damage). Or, you can try out a more aggressive tank bot lane like Leona or Thresh.
