Why does this game let you ban champions?

There is almost no synergy in between the heros, so you can't really ban out comps. Their only purpose seems to be to ban out what people like to play, which is awful.

Because they allow you to ban out what people want to play for no visible reason.

Seems like reason enough.

Remember that until a point it's just you (maximum 4 persons in a lane) against your enemy.
Your champion may have weaknesses early on or later on.
It's up to you to capitalize what's the best for the team on respective phases to have a better and suitable match for your comp.
It's strategy!

They've nerfed the champions so much that there really aren't any counterpicks. Every champion has a terrible lane phase.

In what world is not allowing people to play what they want good game design?

i personally like to ban champs that counter the one i plan to pick in lane. that way me picking a top laner first pick isnt such a bad idea.

however, the comment "champions have no synergy at all" makes this a joke topic.

Graves/Sona Bot

or

Jarvan top
Anivia Mid
Alistar Jungle

There certainly are counterpicks and synergy between the champs, but champions are rarely banned because of that.
