So, I play LoL for a lot of time, with 2 pauses between it (give up, get to upset playing)

But I noticed: I don't have a role! I don't have a main, and I have one account lvl 30 for a long time, and another one lvl 20+... I mean, I still didn't choose a role, a main :/

So I always get lost on the game, don't know right who to choose, and where to play, like a begginer! And I have a problem, when I do bad, loose too much, etc... I don't get mad, I get sad, I start seriously thinking I'm horrible and should play tetris, that the games I went well and won, my mates and enemies helped me, I feel useless and completely noob on the game...

The champions I played the most: Rammus in the very beggining, on twisted treeline, like from level 1 to level 20... Then I started on sumonner's rift: Soraka supporting bot and Nasus on solo top, but I stopped because I was facing too many teams with 2 on top (no jungler), or ranged, and getting wrecked :/ The rest of the time I was going crazy, playing whatever I was feeling like, or the team needed, with no focus, without master the champion and the role :/

So, I think this is my preference role: Tanker and Tanky-DPS (which fit the most on jungle or solo top) and Support...

One big question: Is it me, or it's very hard to lane solo top against a ranged enemy Kennen, Vladimir etc, or against enemies who can poke easily with range Katarina, Yorick, using more melee champs like Nasus, Volibear, Riven etc? IDK if it's really hard or if I'm horrible at the game '-'

Champions I like in theory: Riven, Renekton, Volibear, Olaf, Pantheon, Jarvan IV, etc...

What do you guys think I should do? :/

Well you have some valid points, and a few things that I believe you are looking at from the wrong angle.

Yes, champs like Kennen and Vladimir DO have range harass, and CAN be difficult to lane against if you have champs that have no long range poke {both give Nasus a very hard time). However, i believe that you are probably playing the wrong mode. in Blind pick, you have no clue what the enemy team is picking, so the matchups are pure chance. That, and in blind, its almost common for them to ignore junglers. My suggestion: Start playing Draft. In this mode you can counter pick your lane opponent to deal with those irritating champs, and grab those other champs that deal with them quite well (for example, Talon is a pretty hard counter to Vladimir, and Ryze is a REALLY hard counter to Kennen). There is nothing wrong with liking tanky champs, alot of people like them, and they are frankly a better choice for players that don't have **** tons of experience yet. On top of this, once you start playing draft, make good use of this site:

http://www.lolcounter.com/

Inside you can find a list of every champ available, and every "strong" and "weak" pick against that champion, and often useful advice as to how to lane against said champion.

If you have any more questions please feel free to ask on this thread or PM me, I will be happy to answer them for you XD

Oh my god that site is awesome! ;o It gives me things I look in every guide, and almost none of them have it :D

And what do you think I should do for start? How can I begin? Choose the champion I will focus?

Support I think on Sona and Janna...
Top and Jungler I have a few options that I "like", how do I choose? ._.

Play the ones you like? Junglers don't have to worry about getting 'countered' until your ELO is at like 2k, so playing the jungler you enjoy is your best option. For top, a few champs that you can grab that are pretty hard to counter are Irelia, Olaf, and Jax. Your support choices are just fine.

lane against a ranged champ is always hard as a melee then you should consider the fact of the counterpicks.
its good u dont have a main or a lane, u should be able to fit well all roles!

Considering I don't have too much IP, Which are the "most unconterable" choices for solo top?
Solo top must have Teleport?
First item: boots and pots? then gp5 item? philo or heart?

No teleport ir not a must
You can start off with the item u want, the one u feel more comfortable and which can help u against that top lane
Gp is by the way one of the most good solotop, also nidalee, ww, mundo, jax, olaf are good and the list goes on...

Hardest champs to deal with top lane are Jax, Irelia, Olaf, and Kayle. Teleport is not a necessity, and most people start boots and pots. Gives dodge ability for skillshots and lane sustain, which you need alot.

Hm, Thx, I'll go for those champions, already played Kayle, but never tried her on top (hmmm LOL) Which build? Still Hybrid AS? Used Irelia too, but failed at getting her potential to the max '-' Jax I used too, a long time ago, before the current meta (irelia too)

I see in guides a lot of things like "mimimi core items"...

Is it only me or I think this is not viable? I mean, 2 or 3 items are expensive, you can't have a core, you have to adapt them to the enemy team and the situation... right?

But what about early game core items? Are they viable? I.E.: "I'll always get boots, then heart of gold, then philo stone, and then I'll look what I need" Or should I always change to fight my lane?
