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
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.
You're dumb if you don't understand that g-cube was exactly right
He did forget to mention Hotshot too, who was the biggest streamer for a very long time and played top a lot.
Now playing: League Of Legends (FireAwayX), Guild Wars 2 (Floralei/Crownbird), World of Warcraft (shut up), SFxT (Poison/Nina, Juri/Lili)
