Why top lane is popular

#1TheSteelPhoenixPosted 3/24/2013 5:27:50 PM
because nothing you do matters.

Go top lane, thresh versus GP, Im at 125 cs, he is at 20. Denying the HELL out of him.

Entire team proceeds to get ass stomped.

End game even though I had not only completely won my lane, but also denied the enemy so hard as to be completely useless.

So you stayed in lane during the entire laning phase and expected your other lanes to magically get kills themselves while being ganked by other lanes?

I think it's because a lot of the top streamers were top laners


wings, voyboy, westrice back on riven/akali


they're still the top guys in viewership and people want to emulate them

You should be pushing top 24/7 to relieve other lanes of pressure, since you're the tankiest.

Team getting wrecked? Get that inhibitor.

Stop saying pros are the cause of every problem with the playerbase.

Seriously, every single time there's a "Why do people X?" topic, the majority answer is always "Because pros X."

Maybe it's just because people aren't good and it has nothing to do with the pros.

As for my reason top lane is my favorite, it's because I almost always win it and get ganked constantly by the jungler and mid. I am now tying up not one but two enemy team members just to deal with me, and my team can usually catch up while they keep failing to catch me.
