    Default What bans in your division/tier?


    Everytime I go into normal draft or ranked games in silver, it seems to me that the following are banned all the time:

    • Shen
    • Malphite
    • Hecarim
    • Amumu
    • Blitzcrank
    • Thresh

    I was wondering if it's the same for Gold, Bronze, and whatnot.

    Shen is overrated. Not worth banning at all. Thresh, Amumu, Hecarim, and Zac, however, are always must-bans imo

    I agree with Asen, those are the musts for me (unless im using thresh or a teammate is and I can first pick it for him). Sometimes Ill ban people who are annoying to deal with tho.

    Are there any other champions other than the ones mentioned that would be worth a ban?

    I'd say blitz, malph, and amumu are permabans.

    Shen is annoying , but not particularly OP. I have no real problems against most thresh, but his lantern can be killer when paired with gap closers like Xin Zhao's E->Q combo.

    Other good bans are Elise, Xin Zhao, Cho'Gath, and Hecarim

    Shen is good if you can coordinate and make good plays with him, in solo q right now he's more or less your free saver every few minute right now

    Thank you guys for giving me hated champions to play in LoL.


  9. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    I usually just ban blitz, and whatever I don't feel like playing against (usually elise and/or kayle since I'm playing singed). Stealth champions are pretty high up there (mainly Shaco, pineapple good shaco players).
    For the usual top 4 (excluding blitz) silver bans:
    -Shen's impact in the game can be countered by anyone that can push the lane hard. He uses ult? Take his tower.
    -Malphite only OP thing is his ult, and that's about it. Other than that, his kit is decent.
    -Alistar, people don't know how to WQ right, gets shut down by poke heavy supports.
    -Amumu, don't stand together (but people are stupid), counterjungle that pineappleer if he's in the jungle.

  10. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    As a Bronze player, the usual four are Blitzcrank, Shen, Amumu, and Malphite. The fifth and sixth ones are usually tossups, some of the usual ones include Akali and Darius. I don't see Thresh being banned as often though, even though people say that he serves the "puller" role better than Blitz.

  11. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    No, Thresh is just ridiculously broken because he has a pull with a passive that does a pomegranate ton of damage in lane, a knockback in any direction, sustain AND a get out of jail free card via his lantern and an ult that is basically a snare. He's just incredibly stupid

  12. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    In dominion tournament draft we usually run bans along these lines:


    Chat bans(Permaban status, won't see the light of day unless someone has to target ban):
    Kassadin
    Khazix
    Jayce
    Nidalee

    Game bans(Less gamebreaking than previous list, but are still OP as pineapple):
    Amumu
    Wukong
    Elise
    Eve
    Lulu

  13. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    At bronze II we ban Shen, Shaco, Amumu, and Blitzcrank. I haven't played in a while so I presume the old Darius bans are out and Thresh bans are in. Other people ban Malphite but I usually don't care.

  14. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    There are three approaches I see to bans in Bronze/Silver:
    1. Banning counterpicks of your champion, or matchups you don't know how to deal with
    2. Banning difficult to deal with champions (Amumu, Shen, etc - champions that can be countered but will capitalize on mistakes or bad team comps)
    3. Banning popular picks (Lux, Akali, etc) - I do this on occassion just because I'm sick of seeing Lux every other game.

  15. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    Gold:

    Hecarim
    Blitz
    Thresh
    Nasus
    Amumu

    Last ban changes often from Elise, Zac, and Volibear. Don't see too many Shen/Malphite bans any more.

  16. Default Re: What bans in your division/tier?


    Plat 5 now and I am usually banning;

    Zac
    Twisted Fate
    Zed
    Hec
    Kayle
    rest of the usual bans
