Champion Name: Akali, the Fist of Shadow
Role: Ganker, Ganker, Ganker, Sometimes Carry
Suggested Item build: Doran's Blade, Mejai's Soulstealer, Boots of Swiftness, Sheen, Zhonya's Ring, Lichbane, Banshee.
Primary Targets: Non-tanks.
Positioning: EVERYWHERE. You have a god**** blinkstrike skill, abuse the hell out of it. However, you DO NOT initiate or charge into the back lines, without proper planning you are easily focused down.
Tips:
- Be as aggressive as you can afford to be health-wise early on.
- Go for ganks at around level 6, of course prioritize your lane then mid.
- Prey on their weak members. Soraka alone? DESTROY!
- NEVER go after tanks unless they are the last champion alive.
- Although she can be built as a hybrid, she excells at pure-AP nuke-raping.

Champion Name: Blitzcrank, The Great Steam Golem
Role: Support/Initiator/DPS/Clean-up crew(Kills those runners)
Suggested Core Item Build:
Support: Cooldown reduction, and a frozen heart
DPS: Start with Sapphire Crystal then build it into a Manamune. Boots.
Sheen---->Tri Force. Situational defense item.
Primary Targets: Carries, Squishy Support, Runners and anyone using a channeling spell. (Fiddle's crowstorm, Kat's Death Lotus, Nunu's Sub Zero, etc.)
Positioning: ALWAYS initiate with a grab.(carries are top priority) Always stick to your squishies to Power Fist enemies who want to try and kill your squishies. Be aware of enemies with channel ultimates. If you are facing against one, forget your squishies and stick to that champ with the channel.
Tips:
-The Grab goes farther than what the display makes it look.
-The Grab goes through walls.
-Throw a LOT of grabs. If they hit, you get kills. If they miss, your enemies are lulled into the sense that you can't grab properly. This often leads to a successful grab.
-Power Fist deals double damage to structures.
-Power Fist acts like a stun (it prevents enemies from doing anything and cancels channeling spells)
-Static Field has a silence. (this can also be used to stop channeling spells)
-Try not to use Static Field too early. It's passive 300 nuke can turn a team fight around
-Use Static Field while running. This will prevent any of them from casting stuns.
-Mana Barrier can help against early game ganks.-Grab>Fist>Static Field(for squishies and last hitting but I prefer the ones below)
-Grab>Fist>Auto-attack>Fist......(this is for reducing you opponent's HP. Use Static Field when he's about to get away)
-Grab>Fist>Auto-attack>Overdrive>Fist.....(for runners who are to scared to fight your Golem Awesomeness)

Champion Name: Tristana
Role: Carry, Pusher/Farmer, Ganker.
Suggested item build: Doran's Blade + HP Pot, Boots, Infinity Edge, Last Whisper as core. Situational after. If problems are going on, get resistances.
Primary Targets: Squishies, people out of position. Tanks are ignored, as always.
Positioning: In the back, no exceptions. If you are up front, smart teams will focus you and you WILL die. You may move up after some targets (specifically, any threat to you, such as anti-carries like Akali/Poppy or someone who will disable you and then destroy you (Udyr) is taken out.
Tips: Farm as hard as possible. 15-20 minute Infinity Edge is preferable. Get 2-3 Doran's Blades if you're having trouble soloing. ALWAYS take the solo lane as Trist.

Champion Name: Amumu
Role: Primary Tank, Initiator, jungle, ganker.
Suggested item build: Cloth Armor + HP pot x5. Build into Aegis or Heart of Gold. Build AR / MR based on enemy composition.
Primary Targets: The entire enemy team, most preferably. Your ultimate (Curse of the Sad Mummy) should be used when you can take the highest threat hero inside of it. For example, if Ashe is completely dominating your team, get your ult off on Ashe and allow your team the luxury if killing her.
Positioning: Up front, always. Nobody should be in front of you.
Tips: Stay in the front, make sure people follow your initiation. Make sure to get the squishies inside of your ultimate. Activate your W to maximize your damage output in team fights. Stun people if they run away.
R>E>W>Q for jungling, but get W at level 1 then max out E and get a level of Q at 4. This allows you to do dragon at level 4 with no problem (unless your blue buff runs out cause you were slow as hell). My mastery build is 1/16/13. (Smite in offense)

Champion name: Kayle
Role: Support into Carry
Suggested item build: Dorans Ring+hp pot, Rageblade, Boots (merc), then either Nashor into more AP or Stark+Infinity. Banshee is good for survivability.
Primary targets: Ult on your carry! Then Ult on your carry! Closest enemy because you stay in back.
Positioning: In the back. Both heal and ult have huge range. Use Q and E for anything nearby when battle starts.
Tips: Rageblade allows solo jungling of buffs and dragon. Use W(heal) speed buff on yourself. Level up 1 point in E, rest till last. E is cheaper harrass during laning phase then Q.

Keep it short I suggest.

Champion name: Poppy
Role: Assassin
Suggested item build: Sheen, Sorcerer Shoes (situational), Deathfire Grasp, Lich Bane, Zhonya's/Abyssal/other AP items.
Primary targets: Their fed carry. Their fed nuker. Anyone that needs to die a quick and painful death.
Positioning: Try to enter the battle from behind the enemy team, or from the sides.
Tips: Ult your target, always. Once your ult runs out, get out of the fight, and rejoin when it's safer. You won't survive focused fire.

Champion Name: Evelynn

Role:
Grieving/Trolling

Suggested item build:
Mobility boots are most, after this just stack Zeals.

Primary Targets:
Very few players even at top elo's are not aware that Eve is a hard counter to Eve. This unfortunately only applies to normal and practice games.

Positioning: 60... 59... 58... REVIVE!(Always take this summoner, I cannot emphasize this enough).

Tips:
the Best advice that I can ACTUALLY give you pertaining to Eve is... If you have a teammate in ranked mode stating "I main Eve" and you are team captain. Who should you ban first? Kog'maw? Garen? Morgana? NOPE EVELYNN.

Champion name: Janna

Role: Support

Suggested item build: Boots of Swiftness/Mobility, Aegis, CDR (depends on enemy and ally team comp, Glacial shroud is cheapest, get 40% CDR if you can), Starks/Will of the Ancients (dep on ally team comp.)

Primary targets: Whoever your carry is attacking. Slow them when they're running away so they get the kill, gale the enemy team to reduce their damage output and disrupt initiation, shield your carry or whoever is dying (melee) since the longer they focus on the ally that's about the die, your carry can pick them off.

Positioning: Try to enter the battle from behind the enemy team (offensive) or wait after the team fight starts and hang around to provide aura and cc.

Tips: Flank enemies and monsoon them into your team, keep channelling monsoon a little to slow the whole team before running away. You can monsoon on the fringes of a team fight to heal your whole team without pushing away enemies, you will probably slow them this way also. Janna is counter-pick for AoE enemy teams. If they have more than 2 AoE ultis, beware of being baited by one, only to have your team get hit by another 2 ultis that you can't counter.

In laning phase, stay in bush and shield + ArmPen Runes to harass (deny gold and even exp if you get good at it) while your lane partner gets easy farm. Don't forget to last hit when you can too so you don't fall too behind on gold (you get most your gold from assists anyway though). If you're 2 vs 1 just let it push to your towner, shield the tower and gale the minions. This method can let you hold a lane indefinitely in laning phase unless you're against some early tower divers or long-range harassers.

WARD! You have the fastest movement speed and can easily zip in and out of enemy jungle to set up for future ganks.

Lastly, I think it's common knowledge how to use gale and monsoon to escape.....so not going to elaborate.
