I was reading a list of magic the gathering players and it got me to thinking that there should be a list of the type of LOL players. This is intended for entertainment, so don't get offended.


1. The noob- You have been playing this game for a couple weeks now. You have one champion it's name is probably either Master Yi or Ashe. No bot can stand against your furious auto attacks, and you totally would have got that double kill last game if that Annie player hadn't ksed you. You aren't gonna play against real players yet, not because you aren't good enough, but because they all have op runes and mastery points that you lack (also people are cruel.)

Strengths: A mastery of the tutorial concepts and irrational playstyle that can confuse even the greatest pro.
Weaknesses:Mordekaiser, Sion, and Garen

2. The one trick pony- You are one of the greatest Nasus players ever. You get friend requests from gold elo players who witness your skill with your chosen champion. You might be a new level 30 player or even level 29 and lack the ip for more champions, because riot gives tier threee runes freakish prices or you might just prefer one champion over all its fellows. Whatever the reason you and your champion are like extensions of one another.

Strengths: An epic level mastery of your chosen champion.
Weaknesses: The banning phase and someone gettting your champion before you do.

3. The lore master- You actually read all the issues of the journal of justice, and it being discontinued was one of the saddest moments of the game for you. Still there is hope you and your comrades keep the fanfiction forum alive contributing and reading one anothers works. You know your champions lore your opponents champions lore and the lore for the champion that is gonna come out next. Furthermore you can tell the difference when Riot suddenly rewrites teemo's lore to make it edgier or lighter in nature. You can't help commenting on the relation between your champion and the one your are fighting "thou shall be defeated my brother" said to Nasus player while using Renekton, but sadly too few people get your references.

Strengths: the use of lore combinations that Riot puts in the game just for players like you like Garen and Lux bottom that are extremely effective.
Weaknesses: The desire to face down that Morgana mid with your Kayle even though better choices populate your champion select screen.

4. The counterpicker- League of Legends is an evolution of the pokemon games that you played when you were younger. You know that Nasus counters tryndamere, but Renekton counters Nasus who is then countered by Tryndamere and dozens more strange triangles like that. League of Stats is in your favorites bar.

Strengths:if your fifth pick the enemy lane is as good as yours and the game might not be far behind.
Weaknesses: picking first and new champions

5. The jack of all trades- You have a champion for every role and your team needs you even if they don't realize it. You will make sure that your team has all the 5 roles covered like a dutiful Dungeons and Dragons player making sure everyone doesn't pick a wizard and leave the party with no fighter. When everyone else is threatening to leave over not getting solo top your going whatever I will fill in where needed. You know your just as dangerous with a Twisted Fate or an Alistar as you are with an Annie.

Strengths: No one is gonna throw you off your game by picking your champion or getting in a lucky ban.
Weaknesses: The one trick pony, a team that is so bad they leave two roles empty(if there was a champion that could ranged carry and jungle at the same time you would own it no questions asked)

6. The troll- You might fear that your skills are not good enough to win or you might be so good that playing the game normally no longer has any draw for you. You will try bizarre builds like tank fizz or ap garen just to watch your allies rage. You know you will be reported by your allies and loved by your enemies. Revive/promote evelynn is probably your main.

Strengths: well uh.......
Weaknesses: Getting permabanned by the tribunal

7.The rager- For some reason you hate your allies and everytime one of them makes even a slight mistake you will cuss them out. Your enemies will probably get their share of the rage as well. Unlike the troll you play to win and are unaware your rampant use of creative curses and racial slurs actually impedes your path to victory or maybe you just can't help yourself.

Strengths: Well ......
Weaknesses: The tribunal

8.The specialist-You may have started out as a one trick pony and decided that you prefer one class of champions over the others. You probably even belong to a team where that is your role. You are excellent with your chosen class whether it be support, carry, jungler, etc, but only average or even meh with the other classes.

Strengths: An almost unrivaled ability to contribute to the team when allowed your favored class. Good person to have on a premade.
Weaknesses: pubs where someone else autolocks in your favored class and then proceeds to feed with it.

9. The lone wolf- Maybe you had a teamfight scar you for life or maybe you have just seen too many teamfights go badly, but you are determined that no one will ever see you and your team in the same place at the same time. You most likely play assassins exclusively and hunt your enemies down one at a time. You feel that allies only slow you down and the better you are the more this is the case. Your like the Boba Fett of LOL.

Strengths: you are generally gonna get the most kills and eventually you will become an unrivaled 1 vs 1 fighter.
Weaknesses: Enemy teams that actually stick together or teammates that constantly blame their lost fights on your absence despite you killing two enemies and letting them fight 3 vs 4.

10. The master- Your skill at this game is borderline supernatural. You look down on gold elo players as noobs and you have probably faced down one of Chaox's or Saint Vicious's smurf accounts at some point. You may have even won. You are unbeatable barring horrible teammates or even better enemies. You are so good that if you were to play a casual game you would be an unbalancing factor on it guaranteeing a 20 minute win for your team. You probably own every champion worth owning and have carried games with evelynn in ranked to prove you are unstoppable.

Strengths: pretty much everything
Weaknesses: none apart from getting saddled with bad teammates and even then you will probably just carry them to victory.


Edit: as pointed out Riot fixed Evelyn so, the new champion to carry with to prove your elite skillz is Twitch.

I'd love to be the last one, but unfortunately time won't permit me to pursue that goal
