Well, we’re there, the final part of this small series about League of Legends soloqueue. I’m aware of the fact that it may not have been the most informative journey of all time, but writing a wall of text may scare people off so I had to asume that people actually know some things from the start. Anyway, for this part we will simply take a look at some charcters you should avoid at all costs while playing soloqueue, not just because they’re bad champions but also because they bring absolutely nothing to your team.
Although people are allowed to play what ever they wish to play, there are still some champions which makes people go into ragemode just because you pick them, first of all, Evelynn, we all know why, she’s easy to counter and she’s not even useful since they nerfed her. Although she’s the prime example there are champions like Katarina, Poppy, Fiddlesticks and Volibear which do not really have a place in any team, they may not be useless champions per say, but if you pick them, you will seriously screw up the team as they really do not have any roles which they fill completely. One could argue that, “fiddlesticks is a good jungler”, yes in a sense he is, but he forces your team to pick a hard tank solo top, and you do not wish to do so, you want to either have one hard tank, one semi tank or two semitanks, preferably the latter.
Then we have champions like Heimerdinger, who despite being an excellent lane pusher do not have the burst damage required from an AP carry. Kayle who is a semi support, semi ranged AD carry, obviously she can’t fill any role completely. The last champion on the list is Sejuani, she’s basically a powerpack of crowd control, but having a bunch of crowd control is not enough when she lacks damage and is not a good tank nor initiator in general.
