Metagame history
And how it formed/shifted. I myself am a new player, so I've been around only to experience the poke team metagame before the current tanky dps metagame. Can any senior tell how has the metagame changed in the time with patches coming and going and new champions being introduced? Are there team compositions that used to dominate the game and are now obsolete?

I am fairly sure if anyone can point it out, it would make for an interesting read.

I don't see slow push teams, which used to feature characters like alistar and sivir, very much anymore. Alistar is less popular due to the arrival of new tanks, semi-tanks, and recent nerfs. Sivir shows up sometimes, but she tends to get stomped by the current tanky metagame.

Sivir is so fragile - and some DPS so beefy - that I've seen her get tower dived at level 1.
