Hi everyone. I'm PoppaSeese on LoLz and i have an issue.

I can't seem to find a champion to "Main" as. I do very well in Beginners (actually...who doesn't?) Nevermind that xD.

I do decent with Draven, Kog'Maw, Diana (Haven't tried her in intermediate) and Rengar on Intermediate. I tend to try staying Range because if im Melee *Darius for example* and begin raking in the kill count i tend to develop that of Darius syndrome and start overextending/wreckless etc.,

Champions i've tried and Like= Darius,Kog'Maw, Draven, Diana, Corki, Rengar, Ziggs, Gregas, Shyvana.

Champions i've tried ad dont like= Sejuani (i love her abilities but cant get the hang of her)) Twitch, Fiora, Hecarim, Wukong, Fiora, Caitlyn, Amumu, Alistar.

PLEASE HELP! xD

I assume you're playing against mostly bots from 'Beginners' and Intermediate.

First, you have to find the role you like most, like AP Mid, Solo Top, jungler, AD Carry bot, or Support.

Then you find champions in those roles you enjoy playing as.

I've done all of those and honestly don't mind. I've AP Kog'Maw as mid and Solo Top Draven and Jungle Rengar... So i don't feel as though im rigid in the sense of that. =\

Well the first step is to find a main "role" before you find a main "champ". For me personally, i mained support for ever, and found that my particular style of play led to extremely aggressive supports ( Nunu, Zilean, and Maokai were at the top of the list) and soon I fell absolutely in LOVE with Maokai. I ran games all day long with him, and found through experimentation what champs he rocks with, what champs he wasnt so good with. From there i learned how to jungle with him, then i learned some mid champs, and now i have moved past the "main" concept, and have "favorites" instead. So, its all a process. And for you to really find that main, you need to vs people in pvp, so you can get a broader experience than simply stomping on ******s all day long. All champs in bots have the same AI controlling them, so they all act the same, with the same level of aggressiveness, the same decisions of when to and not to dive, its all very vanilla. Going against people and finding the champ that you just stomp on people with is a must. So my encouragement to you is, go into PVP, and try out a menagerie of champs for a particular lane. It sounds to me like you particularly enjoy mid and ADC, especially if you like those ranged champs. Characters you should probably try out for each, that span a very broad range of styles, and are seen in all levels of play:


MID:
Cassiopeia
Orianna
Veigar
Brand
Zyra
Twisted Fate

ADC:
Urgot
Graves
Ezreal
Caitlyn
Vayne
Corki

I am confident that, among this list of champs, you will find one to call your main, be your sweetie pie, and earn you IP like no tomorrow.

Hope this helped, GLHF XD

I took the advice of jumping on PVP to test a certain character and to my very hih surprise i have been decimating people with Diana. Her Ulti CD reset and very high burst dmg and small CC control make me laugh insanely. I've yet to Try Corki in PvP but i have tried Caitlyn in Beginner bots and i HATE how she plays. I'll give the list a try and get back to you. =)

Having a main = being bad.

Be good with at least 2 champs in every role, just because of counterpick/bans
English is not my native langage, I'm sorry about how painful to read my text are :c

Well thats kind of what i said, too. To start off with in blind picks, having a main is just fine. However, if thats where you stop, then you have a problem. When you do drafts, you need to have 3 roles that you know well and at least 3 champs in each of those roles you also play well (to start). No need to be proficient in all 5 roles, thats spreading yourself too thin. If you can do 3 well its damn near impossible for everyone else in a draft to call all those lanes without you calling one out first.

Hm. Well what role does a Diana AP do? I mean i don't know the terminology of it, all i know is i can play Diana in any lane and build her AP.
I can play Kog'Maw also as well as play a decent Draven and mediocre Ziggs.
I can play Darius but tend to overextend and therefore begin to feed.

Oh and to The Overmyynd i tried Brand out and ZOMMMFG he hits soooo hard and is such a BAWS!!!

Lawl. Yeah brand just ****s on people. Diana was created primarily as a jungler. However i am FAR more scared of her mid lane. Ziggs is meh at best, which is sad, because i LOVE his concept. Kog is more often seen in bot lane as an ADC, but i have come across AP kog in mid lane, and they are indeed irritating. However a good Talon or Fizz will shut him down very quickly.

I mid as AP Kog'Maw. All in all i Mostly play Diana if i want Burst Melee or Draven if i want burst Range dmg. Kog'Maw if i want alot of kills (Yet less then Draven or DIana) or im playin a suport class. And Corki if i want to generally want to lose my mind. Although i see Brand needs a spot now. Although i dont have a tankie support class. Hm
