My top champions:
It's not just mid I'm having these problems with. I need to narrow it down to just a handful of champions.
How do you pick your main roles and champions? I've done decently in every role with many champions, and it's so difficult to choose which roles to focus on, let alone 2-3 champions for said roles.
I also have a lot of difficulty deciding when to choose certain champions. Great, I got my role, but which champion fits it better for this team comp and against the enemy team?
Example: The mid champions I currently play are Diana, Zyra, Ahri, Katarina, and Galio. When do I choose one over the other? Normally, if I'm not sure how to play against the opponent, I pick Galio. If I'm first pick, I play Ahri. When do I know it's safe to play Diana, Katarina, or Zyra? Which ones do I drop?
Edit: Could you at least tell me why you're downvoting me? I really like a lot of champions. Why is that bad?
I decided I was going to main Vladimir since before he was released. I heard he would be a Tank/bruiser spell caster based on a vampire and his original concept art looked like Sephiroth (Oh, yes, hate me more please.)
(and before burning me at the stake about Vladimir, I just gotta point out, that I was dedicated before his skill set came out and became a high priority hate champion.)
Since then I main champions that have strong skill kits that I naturally play well with, and chose to improve my skill on them, rather than just choosing a champion because they are currently over-powered, or based on a random whim,
I choose my champions based on themes, skins, or lore. Zyra, Ahri, and Diana are all big examples of this. I loved the sneak peak for Zyra, and waited for it biting my nails for a long time. I'm really into plants, dryads (Dryad Soraka was the second skin I ever got,) and things like that, so I was so stoked for her. I was there the day Ahri was released, running around the forums like a chicken with my head cut off until I could buy her Dynasty bundle and play her. (First bundle ever.) I'm a big Leona fan, so when I heard about Diana I was so giddy! I went and made a PBE account just to play her (Dianas Panties.)
Anyways...yeah. That's how I choose my champions.
I have Galio because of his Hextech skin. I've only lost a total of 4 games with him. I got Anivia because of her Hextech skin. Same with Janna. (I'm a big steampunk fan.) I have a Nidalee smurf because I adore her, I played Katarina long before her rework...etc.
