We all now the current meta. ADC goes bot with a support, top goes bruiser.

Then there are some bruisers/melee ADCs which are counted as basically UP because they got some problems in the early game.

But who says you can't send a slippery ADC top? Who says your support has to go with an RADC?

Actually, some problems are usually the range, the ability to stick to the target or to have enough sustain.

Some examples:

Aggro supports: Those are best placed with melee ADC. Or with people with a high burst. People who need either additional burst damage so you can instagib ppl or position advantage.
Supp examples: Blitz, Leona, Alistar, (Darius?), Karma (Works well with melee)
"Carry" examples: Poppy, Master Yi, maybe also Nasus (can't say if he does enough damage in melee form), Leb (Aggro support = freekills everywhere!), Sion, Tryndamere. Actually I am playing TF Taric with Blitzcrank bot. In general melee ADCs and bruisers should favor this one, IMHO.

My personal impression with playing Taric there is you have to play hyperaggressive. Else you get poked down and harassed all the time. This also brings a problem up, if you are behind your lane power decreases drastically - but this is partly also through for RADC bursters (Graves for example). However, certain matchups of melees offer a very good synergy with the jungler because of lots of CC (Sion, Poppy, Nasus, TF/Bruiser Taric).

Sustain lane: Champs who don't have got damage, burst or CC.
Supports: Sona, Soraka, Alistar
"Carry": Maybe Nasus for farming, Veigar, Ryze (not sure, he has subpar winrates, and isn't THAT bad mid IMHO, but has a rather weak early game)

The idea for aggro is mostly to bring them in reach for the non-supporter. Pretty much every melee should pwn a ranged in a 1vs1 at 0 distance.


€://Just noticed Nasus' Wither. Since he should be crippling the enemy ADC I would run him on a rather offensive setup I guess.

Hm, another idea might be to send them top but let your jungler babycarring them by camping top lane.
