why are some champions classified by lane?

#1chelthPosted 1/15/2013 5:22:46 AM
like what makes a champ a "mid" or a "top?" why can't everyone just go anywhere?

Cuz that's their natural habitat?

Squishies go mid,

Tops are durable Champs,

Bots contain the squishiest of em all.

like last night i was playing normal blind with my brother. i picked taric and he picked garen. we both ran to the bot lane and the ezreal says i'm the adc, garren go top. we didn't argue just cause we know every ezreal is a huge jerk. but why couldn't ezreal have gone top? it doesn't make any sense to me.

Ezreal is squishy early and wants to farm lots for good lategame power, so you stick him in a lane with a support to help defend him and stuff

You can play anyone anywhere.. but its just habit and strategy to follow current standard..not that its required. You can both go support and ADC mid with up bot...won't really change. Two top champs going mid doesn't change. People like the duo not because of dragon.

Ap early vs ADC is bad matchup so you just pair equals or if possible counters..tthat's all that determine lanes

If good things come to those who wait - arn't they just the leftovers of those who got there first?
There is not good or bad, just perspective and opinion.

It is more of a general consensus. We decided that certain types of characters go to certain lanes, but it changes because then sometimes people "counter" those picks. Usually mages go mid. They go mid because it is a short lane, they level up faster, can roam,.Sometimes you can pick someone like Talon or Pantheon to counter that person mid. Usually AD/tanky/bruisers go top, but certain AP characters can do well against them ( Vlad, Rumble ). The reason why AD carries and support go bot is because ADC needs someone to babysit, there are only 3 lanes so someone needs to duo and it's easier to have one person cs and one person sit there and protect, and also since dragon is bot, it's better to have 2 down there. Nothing says that one person can only go top or bot, but you could get wrecked otherwise.

Ezreal has a good escape, range, and easy harass. Ezreal can easily take top lane.

Yeah I guess he can, I was just giving the whole AD+support bot reasoning

Though I think a lot of the beefier tops would give ez problems

Only those with good gap closers that can CC him right after (Jax). Ez always has the option of sitting back and last hitting.
