With somewhere around 400 games under my belt, I can confidently say that I have seen EVERY SINGLE CHAMPION played effectively in a high tier. In the right hands, any hero can be an amazing asset to a team. Of course, in most hands, heroes like Janna are not very effective, but a player who masters her can dominate.


So, EVERY champion is very viable. It's just about hero combinations and group balance.

According to the top 500 summoner list: Khrane - Rating 1895. That's some street cred, dawg.

Dear dreamischarger, please stop talking about LoL. Honestly, I'm sick of your constant posts about you constantly talking about your skill and prowress at playing/understanding competitive LoL (especially concerning Kat) when your ELO rating is below 1700 according to the top 500 LoL players post. People who are retorting you have street cred. What do you have? Last standings post from your winning games in noobie island that last too long.

I've got over 1700 (and i'd have a whole hell of a lot more if i didn't only play with newbies and inhouses/scrims) and i pretty much agree with this list. I'd change some stuff around myself, but this is pretty reasonable. I know a lot of high level players really love Singed, and i think i like him more than dream does. But yeah.

You don't even know dream if you think he's biased in favor of kat. His favorite champion is probably Eve, but you'll notice she got put into "unviable". Which is pretty much true.

I'm not a good player, but I agree Cho is only Viable. He's my favourite, but until the late game can't expect to win a 1-on-1 fight.
Great at harrassing, though. Scream from grass at an incoming champion sends them running away most of the time, and temporarily harmless if they don't. And Rupture is GREAT croud control.

How you even differ viable and most viable? From your list it seems that Jax and Shako are less viable than Cardmaster (which rarely sees play atm) and Alistar (which really need some buffs and tweaks imo, cause he sux compared to other tanks and Sivir can push out the **** much better).

Also how the **** you compare Soraka with Jax, Veigar with Corki. ETC. Is this your personal rating? You should at least divide it into categories, like tank, support etc.

If you meant "balanced" by "viable", then I kinda agree with some points, but again - Jax is one of most balanced heroes atm. As well as Cho'Gath. And Shako needs only few littlee tweaks.

Jax is pretty narrow at the moment.

Shaco is really strong, but in my view somewhat questionable. What purpose does he serve on a team? Yeah, he's unkillable, but what about the rest of the team? Would you give up, for instance, an Ashe for him? I actually think i'd rate him higher than dream, but i've got questions as to his viability.

Cardmaster is underrated. (Edit: I'm told team AoN banned cardmaster in their game against team Mundo in the recent tournament. Just in case you doubt my claim that CM is underrated.)

Alistar can do things no other tank can.

Soraka is secretly amazing, but only if you know what you're doing.

Shaco needs to lose about 30% of his damage dealing capabilities >_>
