It seems like every solo q game I get in the first 4 picks are a melee dps of some sort usually Olaf, Shaco, Pantheon and Master Yi.

This just makes /face palm does everyone want to be the uber leet dps or what? Don't people realize this is a team game?

I dunno, but I'm tired of trying to pick a solid ranged DPS champ and only coming up with Ashe and possibly TF. :|

WTB a good ranged melee dps champ soon.

I do not like twitch personally he is far to squishy.
Teemo is bleh.

Have you considered Sivir or Tristana? Both use phsyical dps items sivir can lane push almost as well as heimer (and is his counter).

Tristana has a lot of durability but I find her to be sort of boring to play.

Melee dps are important part of the game that ususally turn the game one way or the other.

But why is it such a common occurrence that 3 or 4 out of 5 people always pick melee dps instantly and do not switch when they see their team would be better off with a tank/healer/support class?
