Ive been thinking about the game and decided to add something of my own to all of this meta talk
Here is the comp I thought of:

AP Carry Top (with armor seals)

Explanation: The mentality behind this is that most of the time Bruisers will not have Runes or masteries setup to counter AP damage. This means that the AP Carry will have a much easier time doing damage to the bruiser. Now this does force the AP Carries to take armor Seals which will force them to be very conservative with mana or they could just rush Athene's.

AD Mid (With Flat magic resist seals and glyphs)
Explanation: Most of the time mid will not be anticipating Physical damage
Sending someone like Kayle mid will completely surprise the mid lane as Kayle has A LOT of sustained damage that the AP doesn't have any defense against because they didn't go with any armor.

Tank + Support Bot (both taking armor seals and defensive masteries)
I think this makes a lot of sense. Usually it is very very hard removing health from a tank but very very very easy to regenerate health. Having a Tank bot will not only counter the physical damage but it will be made even more effective because it is really easy to regenerate the tank's health.

The off tank or bruiser will Jungle

You're describing the old meta.

There's a reason why it's the old meta.

AP Carries still go top >_> Occasionally, you see Kennen, Vladimir, or Swain top.

MrCuddowls.... I... I just don't know where to start. This meta is old and didn't work for a number of reasons. Your welcome to use this in normals, but please please don't try this in ranked. Even in ranked 5s you'll be destroyed against the current meta. Almost every lane matchup you suggest is counted by the current meta.

How many times does this idea have to be brought up... Seriously it's like at least once a week someone has to "come up" with this idea of a "new" meta.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

I take flat armor seals mid as a mage, how mad are you?

You want a good lane set up?

AP carries beat AD carries, AD carries beat bruisers, and Bruisers beat AP carries.

Send a bruiser mid, send an AP bottom with support, and send a AD carry top.

^^^ GG new meta op ^^^
Tri lane for life.
