I was just wondering what champs are considered viable or better yet extremely preferable top lane champs? I know it all relies on skill and a good [champ] can beat a bad [counter-champ], but I know there's champions that are generally more favored top, like Olaf, Jax, Jayce, Shen, and Malphite. What are some more of these champs?


I ask because I've been playing Riven in ranked solo top and usually I'll either get killed first and it'll go their way or I'll kill them and I'll snowball, and I feel like it wouldn't happen like that if I chose a different champ. Is this just the way top lane is?


Also, without taking counterpicking into account(which I will) would Vlad, Riven, or Akali be considered viable top lane champs?

Any input is appreciated. thanks.

Rumble, Riven, Jayce, Darius, Olaf (Sometimes).
Vlad can be used.
Akali should not be used.

I watch a lot of ranked games and I see Vlad, Riven and Darius quite often.
