Didn't you lose an awful lot when you were learning how to play? Don't you win more often now that you've got a little bit of mechanical skill and map awareness?
You think that you're the only one here making assumptions? Aren't you assuming that I've never played with anyone who is ranked and might be able to gage their skill level in comparison to my own? Aren't you assuming we play in ranked games with no jungle, no wards, no oracles and no desire to follow the meta just because that's the level you play at?

I shamed both you and Rynhardt by posting evidence that neither of you has attempted to play even one ranked game. In continuing to protest, you've both proceeded to pile up more and more comments about what "we all know" about ranked games (presumably drawn from reading threads on GD forums). Time to leave the thread.

I completely agree. I can never play Riven in ranked because everyone always forces me to go top lane. I don't think Riven should go top lane. She just doesn't have enough defense to last against heavy bruisers like Jax or Olaf. People have the idea that certain combinations are the only combinations because that's what they're told. Do what you want, it's a game.

as its been said, on a long enough timeline, everything dies. why cant i apply this to a ban system?

You should gauge your ranked-play skill level off the amazing scores you are putting up against bots with AD carries. That's basically the same thing. Some of those bots have really good AI.

Riven can lane against 95% of the cast and be fine. She has several hyper counter picks, but most of them are very unpopular top lane picks(like Volibear and Morgana for example). She does just fine in other lanes too, even bot lane. Shes one of those characters you can take to literally any lane be alright with. Just takes a bit of practice in each lane to get used to things. She definitely shuts down a lot of mid lane champs and bot lane champions with the right support by your side. Riven + Leona/Janna is amazing.
