Hey guys, I'm a new player (started a little more than a week ago) and this is my first post on mobafire. So, I wanted to ask you guys who you recommend as a champion to use. Of course, here are some pointers.

1. I'm pretty good with Veigar and Fiddlesticks, but I'm best (so far) as Singed. As singed I use the top rated build on this site, if that gives any hints as to my preffered playstyle.
2. I prefer ranged characters
3. Dedicated tanks are a no-go, I tried Tryndamere and even after some expert guidance and good builds range harassment kept me way down. Straight up melee focused fighters like Tryn and Udyr are out. However, assassin characters like Warwick usually don't let me down
4. It doesn't matter how much the difficulty rating is, if the character suits my style i'm willing to fail a few games to start doing well

Suggestions? and thanks for reading!

Hmm... these questions are really hard for people to answer... and there are so many threads like this... but I will try.

Janna is a good support character that has a lot of control. There are a lot of things you can do to ensure kills / save people and heck she's really fun to play.

Anivia is one of the best caster carries and has a lot of control and you can pull off a lot of saves with her wall if you have finesse.

Nidalee can do well as ap or ad depending on what you want for your team. She takes a long time to learn but is a great escaper / poker / finsher.

Twisted Fate can also be built a lot of different ways and has stuns / map control going for him. I think he is a ton of fun but a lot of people feel like he is underpowered right now.

Otheriwse... just keep playing all the free champs till you find one you like :) The key to this game is to learn all the champions and play them even if you don't plan on buying them. This way you can do better in anticipating enemies moves and what they will do in a given scenario, because you yourself have been in that scenario.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

Well, until about level 10, I just picked new characters to try, but I fell in love with Morgana because she was amazing.

-Her first skill, Dark Binding is a skillshot where she fires a purple blast which snares (locks in place) the first enemy it hits (including minions), so you have to be good at predicting movement.
-Her second skill, Tormented Shadow lays down a small DoT area on the ground, which is amazing for clearing the back minion wave by level 5, which is 3 points into it.
-Morgana's third ability, Black Shield stops any and all disabling abilities until it's taken enough damage. That can also be cast on allies.
-Her Ulti is Soul Shackles, which deals initial damage, slows, and if they stay within range for 4 seconds, stuns them for 2.5 seconds.

-So if you want to be a powerhouse in 1v1 or in teamfights, give Morgana a whirl and lemme know what you think. She has many different playstyles, I prefer her mild tank/AP.

Sorry, I'm more of a guy who uses melee, but I recommend Janna, or even Lux.

My friend kicked my butt with Janna :(
My Teemo Build!

It says February 2011, but I just changed my REALLY old build into this. It's not old at all!

Twitch is my favorite ranged assassin, He's a stealth range guy, Expensive but worth it. I've been doing pretty good with him lately, not to hard to get used to may take a few games, But if you do get him try using Xaoli's guide to learn him, Also always get mid when possible.

Just to show his stats etc if you've never seen twitch before, I'd recommend him :P

Ever thought about trying:

- Triastana out? has Different play styles available, and a great harasser, personally i love her :)

- A Ranged Carry DPS Champion, Harass and carry, just like Tristana.

- Can be Build in Different ways, he is a Melee, but most likely, u will be running the business in the lane thanks to his Passive. And is just a Tough opponent to take down.
I Play Ranked with Him, and i've lost only 1 match. He can be build as a Tough DPS. He is obviously the champion i would recommend the most ! :)
