Hello Summoners!

I have become most comfortable in the top lane, and I have accumulated a handful of top lane champs but don't know when to use them. The current champs I play top are Jarvan IV, Udyr, Singed, Irelia, Akali, and Yorick. Which ones should I use vs melee/ranged, ad/ap, etc? Right now I basically just play what I feel like but I want to move towards trying to counter opponent top picks. Thanks!

I'm not sure how you'd know what your opponent would be picking until the match starts. o.o

During picks and bans and I pick after the opponent chooses a top champ? Example: 1st pick on their team is... Riven. Who would be best to counter this, etc.

There's a google document that's been floating around lately with a lot of quality counter picks and counter tactics: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...owsperpage=250

See if that helps. Counter picks can be complicated at first but once you start understanding what types of champs counter which, it gets easier. Just try out a lot of different match ups and see what works best/worst.

In my opinion if solo top is your role of choice, get all the top laners you can, play them all, work out thier own strengths and weakness, and by that I mean also the strengths and weakness's in how you play the champ.

By doing that for yourself, you will know how to counter who and with who. Experience really does make a difference and help!
