There are too many champions out there, and too many who are too similar to each other. Why do we see Ezreal, Corki, or Graves in every game? Because these are the safest AD carries with quick escapes. This is important in a game with so many assassins that can't be countered with bans. The fact is, if an opposing team has a wide enough array of champions they can play, they will the play the game they want to and you can't force them into strategies they aren't comfortable with.

Some options to deal with this would be retire champions, or have a rotating pool like the free champions for the week with champs that are "on vacation" or something. For tournaments have a smaller pool available. Just some ideas to make champion select meaningful like it used to be.

Champion select is part of the game. There is a lot of strategy in picking/counterpicking.

Dude... this is a GOOD thing. Not a bad thing...

Also, you act like having that ad carry is absolutely essential. It's not, it's just the current meta. you could get away with doing a 5 bruiser team if you played it correctly. Or a 5 assassin team. I've done it and facerolled. So just because those are the best picks for that role doesnt mean it's forced on you or anything.

idk having so many champs imo is awesome, that way you don't see the same 10 people every game
