Do you pick spells for the game or for your lane?

Question, how did world trade center building 7 (the -3rd- building to fall) collapse during 9/11? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnnjIzamnJo

...I pick spells for the champ and what I'm using them for. For example, when I use Tristana, I normally pick Surge and Ignite (I know, I know, "What, no Flash, BLASEPHEMY!"), but I wouldn't necessarily pick those if I wanted to go AP with her.

I think flash/clarity and flash/exhaust would be the more popular combination on support/AD bot if people picked for the game instead of for the lane. Thought it is a pain for the AD to get into exhaust range in teamfights...

Generally I pick for the lane.

He means do you choose summoners that are more appropriate for winning you lane, or summoners that help you late game, for example exhaust is way better than ignite later on but ignite can catch you some kills in the lane.

Having flash on tristana is redundant. You don't need surge AND ignite though. Heal/Surge ftw.

if you're an ad carry and you pick anything other than ghost flash vs poppy then you're usually f***ed

I pick based on both. If I'm Yorick I'll either take Flash/Ignite if my opponent is AP, Flash/Exhaust if my opponent is AD.

Generally both. Ignite and heal are the only that I would call "lane-based", and I am not a huge fan of either. I only take heal on an AD carry when the other team has little threatening CC, and ignite when I am playing a heavy kill-based assassin.

Exhaust, TP, smite, flash, and ghost are pretty strong all game.
