This is just a noob question, not some thread intending to whine about game balance, although I'm sure the balance complainers will hijack the thread soon enough...
Is there a place in the current meta for assassins of either variety (AP/AD) or Melee AD Carries (like Tryndamere/Fiora)? Are there any plans in the works to make either role more viable, if they currently aren't? Are there any good forums posts/red posts on this that I'm missing?
Most of what I see in the pro games is Bruiser Top, Tank/Bruiser Jungle, AP Mage Mid (possibly Katarina mid, which is an assassin at least), Ranged ADC/Support bot, of course. And logically this appears to be the best possible set up, which is of course why it is the meta. Whenever I see people play assassins or Melee ADC, it just doesn't seem to work out. Is this generally true, or am I missing something?
Although I suppose the Season 3 jungle changes sound like they are intended to make squishy junglers more viable, which might open the role up to assassins and melee ADC.
So what's up? Lol
