The problem is that, in the rare instances I get to play top, Jarvan or someone else more tanky ends up being a much stronger pick than Riven would be. (Generally need someone tanky, so it tends to be Jarvan or Garen.)


Riven doesn't particularly fit the "meta" in that she's something of a melee AD carry. That archetype is honestly pretty bad at the moment for various reasons. There's also the fact that most teams need a tanky initiator, and that's difficult for Riven. I like playing Riven too, but if I want a good team comp I can't find a place for her.

Dunkmaster Kareem Abdul Jarvan is a boss hog jungler. Riven has a hard time ganking effectively, and probably would be better sent in one of the lanes.


as long as that lane is top

Jarvan jungle is no different. Riven jungle has never been particularly good. Tankiness and CC are qualities a jungler usually is expected to bring, and Riven doesn't have either.


a stun and a knock back arent cc?

Riven's stun and knock back are pretty minor in comparison to anybody else with stuns and knock backs. They're not long enough to make her a strong initiator, for example, which is part of her problem as a jungler or even a top lane.
