Why are Bronze and Silver pubstomer champs considered weaker picks in high elos?

Champs like Akali, Kassadin, Darius, Singed, Xin Zhao, Jax, Master Yi, Katarina, Teemo Garen and Blitzcrank

Why are they so dangerous at my elo but kinda laughable at yours? Tell me your secrets!!!

Because lower ranked players lack the mechanics and/or game IQ to adequately deal with each champion's abilities?
This is fact and cannot be disputed.

It's usually because refined mechanics and proper team play, composition, and positioning will make their strengths a little less prominent.

Having said that, Plenty of pros play Singed, Jax, and Xin.

Hard CC, I would guess. One well placed stun and all those Champs seem like they would be instagibbed.

All of those champs still get played, though. They're just not all considered brokenly OP. Low Elo players are just more prone to exaggeration.

Because they're pubstompers. If you know the definition of the word, you know the answer to this question.

Assassin champs like Akali and Kass get easily fed off of mistakes that low elos commonly make. Then they roam and snowball the game.

Low elos?

Rain Man literally went something stupid like 20/3 with Kassadin in diamond elo.

Voyboy consistently gets kills in the double digits on Akali

Diamond isn't some glorious haven of flawlessly coordinated players. They get pubstomped just the same as any disorganized solo queue match would.

Surprised no one mentioned Xin Zhao and Blitzcrank don't see high elo play often because they're banned in a lot of games. Xin Zhao is in the top 6, and Blitz has been in the top 10 bans for a while now.

They're also about the same spots on popularity (i.e. how often they're picked).

So, no, some champs on that list are actually good.

Darius is even seen once in a while in high level play; He just has so many counters that it's a situational pick. At low elo, people don't know how to kite or counter pick, which is why he's seen as OP. Learn his range, and the only way he'll ever hit you is if someone in their team hits you with CC, or he wastes a flash (and you should have yours saved just for that).
