  3. Do you ever selfish ban?

Just played a game where the enemy captain banned nothing but his specific counters. He was playing malzahar and he banned LB, Lux and TF. Does this sort of thing happen a lot, a captain chooses to be selfish and either bans all his counters or another specific team player's counters?

If you consider banning TF every game selfish, then yes.

I think I did once.

In solo queue it's every man for himself, for the most part.

Well TF and MAYBE Lux I can understand, but LB? Are you that paranoid about getting countered youre willing to risk an amumu or elise or Blitz on the opposing team.

Unless you're sure you can't play without doing it, don't ban selfishly.. it's like the third or 4th earliest moment at which you can make your team start arguing.
Remember that failure only occurs the moment you've decided you will no longer strive for success.

I never, ever ban Malphite in bronze or silver.

He's only slightly more difficult to handle top, and at least 50% of the time the enemy will take him jungle, which is just dumb.

I understand Lux... but TF and LB?
Huehuehue.

Good for you in that case.
TF is becoming more like a Shen though, he's now banned more.

P.S Since when did TF or Leblanc counter Malz?
The above post is either real or surreal.Have fun guessing.

tbh I was simply answering the question rather than responding to the anecdote. That's the one ban of those three that seems reasonable (the three in OP that is.)
