Zero I've only played one game with you. I was pantheon top, believe you were shen jungle. Was that with TechPBers or other guys?
on a side note, All I've been playing is draft for the past couple months. If you play Shen, Malphite, Alistar, Amumu, or Blitzcrank, be prepared to never be able to play them.
Kat, ezreal, Darius, Lee Sin, Morgana, and karthus are also popular bans
No, that was some of my friends that got me into the game. I normally play ADC or jungle with them, but since 2 of them already had the duo lane set-up I was like, "Okay, I'll just jungle." And Draft is what I've been playing as well. I know Shen is not really an issue, the only problem is his high health in late game. He's not really a bruiser, he's just good at keeping people from dying and ulting to save a teammate. He can be a bruiser though.
No idea why Ezreal is a popular ban. He's not OP at all. The poke lane combo, Ezreal - Sona is pretty good, but it can be beaten by other combos, and Graves counters Ezreal with his burst. I know Katarina is banned due to her ability to easily get a penta when she is played right. Darius needs a nerf imo. His ult is insta-refresh if he gets a kill, and it's always to kill steal. I mean, it's not bad that Darius gets fed. Morgana is only banned due to her skill shot snare. I believe that is the longest snare in the game when it's maxed out. I see no issue with it though. Quick Silver Sash will counter her pretty hard. People just don't know how to incorporate defensive items into their build.
And Herbert (whose new account is CPS) get Jayce and Yorick when you can. I know they're expensive, but if you want, you can buy them with RP. Jayce counts Darius, and Yorick counters Jayce and Darius. But Jayce I believe can contribute more to a team fight. I'm not sure. I've never played Yorick.
