Simple complaint/suggest, can Phreak stop playing champs out of their intended role? Past 2 days I have seen much fighting on my teams due to a zed taking mid for some reason and then nobody wants to ap carry top. No idea why Phreak played Zed mid, but it was a bad idea...
Quote:Zed is an assassin.
Assassin typically lose to bruisers, which is what is sent top most of the time, they excel at killing squishy targets, hence why Zed's ideal place is midlane.
Assassins by nature have to fight squishy targets. If they also killed tanky targets, there'd be no counter to assassins.
With Vladimir, Rumble, Kennen, Katarina, and probably a few others working pretty well as magic damage in top lane, I don't see a reason to shy away from physical damage in mid.
Quote:the thing is, u force your teamate into picking Vlad Rumble Kennen Katarina. this may work in tournaments but solo queue needs more options before it becomes meta imo
If you're playing Ranked games, you should know how to play your role competitively. This means playing things other than Irelia.
Edit: Honestly this applies to any Draft game type, IMO. You're playing a game type that by nature is asking you to counter-pick or pick things in response to other champions. You're opting into an experience that makes you learn multiple champions in a role.
I haven't had a lot of experience with Blind Pick in a while, so IDK about that one. You can build Zed brusery if you like, I suppose.
Quote:i simply mean if u want an ap top because you want some form of scaling ap dmg so enemy dosnt just build armor to counter your team, might be nice to have more manaless ap's that can hold top vs bruisers, jsut to have more options, i rly think this is all thats missing for certain bruisers to be considered mids in regular occurence.
For example, putting Gragas up there. Singed is a common top-laner who AP scales. Teemo. There's actually quite a few that aren't "conventional" mages.
