You go learn how to play every single champion that can competently play in the role that you favor..

Because PRO's are better off only practicing 2-3 champs, and being reall REALLY good at those 2-3.. (except the asians, some of them know 10 champions for their role)

And the way the game is currently played favors some champions over others. Not that those that it favors are better than the others, just that the way the game is played favors them..

There was like 66 or 67 champs played. There's 108 or something like that. Your math is off.

EDIT: Just checked, 66 champs played. 107 available. That's 61.68% of all the champs. Over half were played out of the 72 games that were played at ipl5.

as far as balance goes, league is way more balanced than most fighters for example. it could be ohhhhhh so much worse.

Some champions are more balanced than others.

When the game becomes for money, you don't use the champions that are more balanced. You want to win.

There's probably about 10 champs that should never be tournament-viable, and will only see use in rare situations. Poppy is an extreme example of this.

Considering that, 60-something out of 97 isn't that bad.

Even Karma saw gameplay as an AP mid in one game and was banned in two others. Kha'Zix saw 4 games played.
