Well if all the horrible things are already banned I'd like to ban the champion that can stun a whole lane.

List of champions I'd rather have banned than Aurelion Sol and are also played a lot more than him, at least at my elo:

Taric, Malphite (if commonly playing with full AD comps), Maokai, Ekko, Poppy, Kindred, Graves, Master Yi.

Probably more that I'm forgetting but that's a good 8 champions that are more ban-worthy than that dragon I never see played. Unless you see him a lot more in gold than I'm giving him credit for and he regularly does well, in which case, ban on. But as cancer as Master Yi is whenever I see him, I don't ban him because I rarely ever see him, so it's just not a worthwhile ban, and I'd say the same for Aurelion Sol if he's as rare as I'm assuming.

Then why are you playing full AD comp when you could just not do it in the first place?

Anyway, a good Aurelion Sol may zone you almost everytime. The bad thing: he's the worst at hiding.
Thanks The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

If I'm playing AD mids on a regular basis, it's very common for me to first/second pick it and for the rest of my team to continue picking full AD around it. And in general it's not that uncommon for your 4th/5th pick mid laner to lock in an AD champion even when your team is already full AD, which there's nothing you can do about.

Banning Malphite is a way to minimize the consequences of having a full AD comp should it end up happening. As I commonly play AD mid laners, I'm usually the one suffering from the full AD comp, so I ban it.

And just **** Malphite in general, cancer champ.

Yeah, my default bans are Malphite and Ekko. After that I just **** around honestly. I haven't seen an Aurelion Sol in ranked yet but that might also be because I frequently ban the dragon.

But thanks for the recommendations, I'll add Taric to my list at least, he's pretty insane.

Personally I don't mind playing against Nid, she doesn't usually carry my games and as ADC I'm confident that I can kite her and dodge most spears.

I just have Kindred as a ban because as jungle Hecarim specifically she's a pain in the *** to deal with, otherwise I have no problem playing against her.

i know on NA the need for nid bans rises exponentially as u soar past diamond

low dia sometimes it doesn't matter if u leave her open since ppl don't know how to use her, but as u go higher and higher she becomes permaban because of how ebola her pressure is early on. i think hax can confirm this?

not sure how the situation is on euw

depends on your jungler tbh. if you are playing t1/high t2 jungler you can get away with it, but even bad nidalee players should smash ****ty tier 3 junglers every time past d5, you just cant keep up with her

nidalee unbanned that isn't vs kindred or a good lee/rek/graves player in master+ should be instant win for nidalee team as long as he isnt garbo. nid stomps gragas pretty hard too
