X Jungle: Too Slow for jungling.
X Solo TOP: It's not that hard for this as many many others champs.
X MID: NO!
X BOT lane: It is not a support, it's a killer machine but has no range so...

I love Poppy, I'm fantastic good with her but in a serious ranked game I can't find a place for her in a team. Could you help me with ideas?

In the current meta, the only spot that is available to her is solo top.
Of course though you could go against the meta, but i dont see her really working.

The true answer is nowhere.

The "Make her fit" answer is top or jungle.

I feel she can work as an unorthodox support in solo queue themed game among players not so bright or to put in another way not aware of her mechanics. Only if the enemy picked something atrocious at top like Nunu then perhaps you could go there lol. As said about jungling her speed clear time is really slow but if you somehow make up for it with ganks and snowball from there then who knows.

I dou que with a friend on Poppy, myself on Taric, and we annihilate bottom almost all the time. Try that. Lane her with a stun, then you can get in while they are stunned and not worry about being kited. Taric's heal and armor buff also help against harass.

Roamer. Every single time ur ad-carry is safe to afk-cs. Go kill mid, top or enemy jungler.
Run her with "whatever the hell ya want"-Clairvoyance or heal.

Top: with a defensive Cloth+5 setup, should make u a very strong top. U want to be a roamer once more. Push minions to enemy tower and kill the enemy mid/jungler.

Mid: AP-POPPY SO STRONK!

Ad-carry: Get a taric/alistar/some other offensive support. And thy be good to go!

Jungler: i think she's a bit slow in the jungle.. BUT WHO GIVES A ****! naah, wouldn't really run her as a jungler.

against garen and many others at top, poppy can't do nothing. Jungling is very very slow and blue dependant :(

She is actually a very strong solo top champion when played correctly.

I didn't make this guide so all credit goes to the creator. This guide shows a very effective way to play poppy in ranked games.

When you actually think about it; Poppy isn't that bad of a champ at top, she is quite comparable to a champions irrelia and riven who are mobile, do alot of damage and become abit tanky. Poppy is kinda the same deal, only with more built in tank,no sustain and less CC.

Just look up Spam Happy profile in League if you want proof that it can be done.

*Shrug*

I think top is where she's best.
