Lately seems like 75% of the time I'm against some cheesy top pick like Quinn, Teemo, Gnar, Jayce, Vayne, etc. It's usually fine since I outscale, but Jesus ... makes the game so miserable, at least for laning.

Anyone else notice the surge in ranged tops, or is it just bad luck for me?

I think it's more that bruisers have vacated top.
Friend Raynor, I can help no longer. Ima head back to the Void Holiday Inn and get a good night's sleep and hook up with you tomorrow for the next mission.

I've noticed it. I play a lot of Illaoi and Yorick lately so I just don't care though

I actually long for the days of seeing Riven and Yasuo every other game.

I think ranged champs just fill in where Bruisers/fighters used to be used. Riven and Yasuo have infinite mobility so you can't really put them in the same group as Jax/Nasus/Darius.

Yes. Riot doesnt have any real guaruntee of melee vs melee matchups anywhere because of the trend to take ranged crap top (since melees get crapped on so easy and games are shorter so lane phase matters more).

Make Top Lane Great Again, build a wall between bot lane and top! Deport the mages and adcs!
Why is it called 'common sense' when it is so rare these days?

Makes perfect sense. You have my vote. +1
