People are generally stupid and do stupid things. This includes being on my level (1100-1200) and thinking the tier list applies to them, so they pick champions who are "supposed to be Tier 1" and suck at them. I know these people have played HUNDREDS of games, and there's got to be someone else they're better or at least decent at.
"But icelord, it's for ranked 5v5 and says so." Yeah. Read my first sentence again. I don't care if you put a disclaimer on it, that doesn't mean tons and tons of people aren't misusing and/or misinterpreting the information provided there. I am tired of seeing the same 4 guys get banned (amumu, morgana, kogmaw, and (wtf?) garen) and the same 15 or so champions get picked nearly every game.
My argument, basically, is this. Hordes of people are misusing the information provided in the tier list. It's supposedly only applicable to high elo, premade, 5v5, ranked games. Why, then, is it in the General Discussion forum? Riot, you claim to be all about making the game fun, and eliminating anti-fun. Well, for me, at least, all this "Tier list" **** is really not enjoyable.
