Who would you guys consider to be a 'safe' top pick for when you're picking top when you can't counterpick yet? By this I mean who doesn't get hard countered by a certain champion or easily does well no matter what if you play well (take note the word easily).

I normally pick Warwick, Riven or Nidalee in this case out of my plethora of top champs depending on our team and their other picks, but I want to see what you guys think.

Just a noob question, thanks in advance

Why Cho'Gath? Just curious. He can be zoned hard by a lot of champions now, can't he?

Champions that could just as easily jungle are decent first picks. On top of this, Udyr and Lee Sin are extremely solid top laners.

Also, Heimer but he is never played.

Warwick, Cho'gath, Yorick.

All can sustain themselves really well and will generally not die in lane (turning it into a farmfest at the least).

Ah yes, this makes a lot of sense. Always groan when I see the other team pick Udyr and Lee Sin at the same time, too.

Riven for a safe offensive playstyle

Yorick/Warwick for a sustain playstyle
