Gold elo match. You are forced to solo (mid/top) lane against a strong pick with few counters. What are you more likely to do? - Results (41 votes)
Disregard enemy's champion and pick a champion you are VERY good at using, even if the enemy counters you a little.

The first one.

Skill will always be a more important factor than the matchup.

Where is the option for picking a champion that fills a role your team lacks? Or for picking a champion that synergizes well with your team?

I think you need to add a few more options to your pole.

I dont always argue with idiots. But when I do, I prefer Gamefaqs...

I pick whoever is open for that role with the largest breasts.

Because I can.

I try to pick my favorite champ for the role unless the enemy champ is a champ that counters me, then I pick one I like that doesn't get countered. I don't care so much about countering them, just not letting myself get countered. If my champ does counter them though, all the better.

The role is either mid or top, whichever one for the purpose of the poll.

The synnergy thing was missing though, you are right. Please disregard this factor.

Because of the number of times I've seen someone pick a Malphite just because it wasn't banned and going 0/7 during laning phase, I must say the results so far surprise me.

Where's the option for helping your team composition? I'd rather my team's synergy is better than picking based on matchups alone.

Pick who I'm good with but avoid counterpicking myself.
